Here is the "Holy Grail"! :D
If you liked my previous Crimson and CrimsonLive skins, I'm sure you will love the new Crimson Live 3! There are many improvements everywhere..

This screenshot show you the new song list in Black! Skin/Font-size -> Large (Right Click on the song list..)

Here is the background image I used for the Shelf3D: (It is also included in the skin as "Sig10.jpg")

I'll post some other screenshots later..

Great Pirk! Love it! Looks great and even more 3D!
Animated gif in the artist list is a nice effect! :D

Pirk - 4-25-2008 at 07:24 PM

Glad that you love my new version Audiosoft! ;)
I'm also happy with this animated gif in the artist list: I use it since a moment and it has never annoyed me, contrary to most of other animated gifs.. So I adopted it! I think it's a attractive symbol for artists. Furthermore, it looks very smooth for a gif..

Otherwise, what you think of my new up next song area?

Audiosoft - 4-25-2008 at 07:57 PM

Up Next is great too! Really like that border around the cover!

Yeah it's a mix between your chrome visor for the carousel and a frame I did myself!
I'm also fairly satisfied with the background png on the left side. I hope everybody will like it too! :)

great skin Pirk. Nice new artist list and now with animation:D
- I will have to look into that. Imagine a disco ball or moving light effect.

Pirk - 4-28-2008 at 08:38 PM

Thanks Ulle
I've tried many different animated gifs in eJukebox, most of them quickly become quite annoying.. But I think this animated mask is acceptable!

what should I say? Very, very excellent work... as usual. :D
If you do more like this I'm going to expect nothing less. ;)

My personal favorite is the animated mask.
What program do you use to do animations?


Pirk - 5-3-2008 at 11:34 PM

Thanks mchawk. I've found this animated mask on internet.. like many other things in my skin! :D

Good work as always Pirk!

Pirk - 5-5-2008 at 04:45 PM


Thanks. I do my utmost!

Hi Pirk,

It's an great skin this one.
But is not better change the color ? (Red to another color ?)
Because is another version of your skin, version 3.It's an sugestion.

I have 1 little probleme, the skin that i download it, Are litte bit different than your screenshot.
I talk about "Now song name" butttons, for me is the same as version 2.1 and on your screenshot is new version (blue and orange color).
(See the screenshot under this message)

I hope you understand this small probleme.


Pirk - 6-5-2008 at 11:56 AM

Hi Irving,

Thanks for your message, but you know the name of this skin series is "Crimson"! :D So I can't remove the red color! :)
I like this red frame. I think it is looking more 3D and attractive than other colors. Nevertheless I could try to replace it maybe by a black frame in my next skin..

Otherwise to solve your little problem you need to do the following actions:
1) Right click on the song list (the part which is looking different for you) to open its menu..
2) Click on the "Skin/Font size" choice in this menu, then you need to select "Large".
3) The song list will be redisplayed like on the skin screenshot! And it will remain the same until you change it again using the same menu: Normal, Large or Xtra Large.. :cool: So you have 3 different song list appearences for the same skin version! ;)

I hope you understand my frenglish!

Alpheratz13 - 6-9-2008 at 12:59 PM

Thanks Pirk for your explain.

It's works.
I love it your skin, it's more and more better.


Yes, i understand your frenglish :D

Hi pirk,

here's a little feedback on your Crimson Live 3-Skin.
I'll tested it on 1680 x 1050 widescreen-settings.

What should I say: It looks really great - IMHO better than on non-widescreen!

Only one little thing: As you use hight-quality pictures - on this screen-resolution the "nocover"-image seems to have a to low resolution. In blacklight I changed the picture to a 800x800 pixel-format. (see screenshot).

Ahm... - but I think you'll do it anyway in the next release - please insert the "shelfbg.jpg"-picture - so I don't need to do that manually. ;-)


Pirk - 9-25-2008 at 01:26 PM

Hi mchawk,

Thanks for your feedback on your new widescreen! Congrats!!
Is it a "Ultrasharp" screen (Dell)?

You are right, I know my nocover image is to small. It's because I made it just recycling some old graphics that was already on my PC.. In fact in my case I never see these nocover images because all my albums are tagged with their own cover images. So personally I don't care! But nevertheless I agree that I should create a larger one for my skin users.

"shelfbg.jpg"? :o Hoops, I missed this feature! Thanks. I've immediately renamed my background picture. So the next release of my skin will fix that, if there will be one? I'm quite satisfied with this skin on a day-to-day basis. It's "my" ultimate, so far! :D I take note of your remarks.

PS: I think my skin also looks good on smaller screens. ;)

Pirk - 9-25-2008 at 02:55 PM

Pirk - 9-25-2008 at 03:59 PM

I'm improving the artistlist: just found a way to remove the small piece of background behind the artist letters.. Cascading style! :D

Pirk - 9-25-2008 at 04:42 PM

I think my artistlist is looking more punchy like that! :)

Pirk - 9-25-2008 at 06:11 PM


Pirk - 9-28-2008 at 09:28 PM

Here is the "production of the day!":

Pirk - 9-28-2008 at 10:12 PM

I think this static version is so much attractive than the one with the animated mask! Maybe it's preferable.. not disturbing you listening your favorite music. ;)

Ulle - 9-29-2008 at 07:15 PM

I agree, this one looks better. Good colour that stands out, easy to read.
You can't leave the skin without making a little here and there :D

I also like much this new orange bubble. I think it's the ideal colour! :)
I use this skin daily. Notepad is never too far to edit the .dis files.. and sometimes a good idea can take place! ;)
