@pirk: thanks. Actually it's just a slightly edited picture of a blacklight-neonlight.

I changed the name to "Blacklight" for the skin and uploaded the beta 0.3.

Any suggestions are welcome.

Which graphics for the menu-buttons?

Gosh - It's difficult for me to choose.

Which one of the menu-buttons looks best?

1.) KDE2
http://www.hoffmanns-home.de/misc/ej/prevkde2.jpg
2.) flat oval
http://www.hoffmanns-home.de/misc/ej/prevoval.jpg

Actually I use the first one.... But I'm not sure, what's best.
What do you folks think?

Nice to see that eJukebox can provide sandwiches and coffee! ;)
Maybe the second one with the square buttons? Well the buttons are easy to change.. so I don't care if you don't change them.

OOPS! F***!
@audiosoft: I'm so sorry I revealed the secret feature on eJukebox 5 and the need for a FSB. (Food Supply Bus). :P

@Pirk: The beta 0.7 has now flat rectangles... But I don't know... I must think about this.

@all: How can I get rid of this vertical black lines through my blacklight bar?:
...and how can I turn the vertical blue background-area to black? (It appears when the artist-list is turned off)

RE: The beta 0.7 has now flat rectangles... But I don't know... I must think about this.

This is not that I don't like the oval shape, even in your skin the oval shape looks really better, but I just don't like the crenelated borders of these oval buttons. If these borders could be shaded they would look perfect! But we can't change that..

EDIT: Maybe you could try to turn the oval buttons in light blue so that borders will desappear.. Well I'm not sure that will be better!

Concerning the vertical blue area.. you just need to edit these 2 images: "leftborder.jpg" and "rsnglistbrd.gif".

As for the vertical black bars it's in the colors.ini file..

Yeah! I like them too.
Did you realize, these beams are just photographs from blacklight-neon-tubes?

O.K.

1) Take a look at the first posting. Follow the picture-link "Schwarzlicht"

2) Look @ attachment.

mchawk,
Thanks for the latest update! Blacklight is coming along great! :o
Let me know if there is anything I can do to help.

BTW i had to rename your skin zip file to Blacklight.zip and take off the version #. For some reason the number was making the file get saved without the .zip extension when you click the link to download it. Anyways if you make all the updates to this theme as 'Blacklight.zip' then it will have the added benefit of automatically replacing the old version of the skin on the menu.

audiosoft,

Good to hear, you like my skin so far.
I had little time the last days. I hope I can work on the skin now. (Yeah! Weeeeeeeeekend!)

Is it possible to set the bars in the right from "now playing" to transparent?

drewster98,
No problem.. I just would like to be beaten more often! :)

mchawk,
Excellent skin indeed! And I'm sure you will improve it even more since it's only a beta version! ;)

@drewster98 & Pirk:
That's what I like to hear. ;)
It's a good motivation to go on - but of course it isn't a "competition" between CrimsonLive & Blacklight. These two skins are to different to compare.
I think it's good to have some Skins to choose - it's best for eJukebox.

I hope you like the new beta 0.15

As soon I finished redesigning the songlist (and understanding the songlist.dis :o ) it's time for the first "real" release.

Good morning mchawk,

It's midday!!

Yeah, to make a eJukebox skin is like a vocation..

Thank you for your 1.0. I like the mouse over effects on the songlist and your browse buttons.
Keep up the good work!

I really like this Skin mchawk.. great job

i was playing around with it last night and revised a few things to suit my tastes.

i retiled both the brick and light background behind the now playing album art, and changed up the image to show some worn rusticated brick. i toned down the light in front of the brick as well and retiled that so it wouldn't show the line from when it tiles when in a larger screen res. i also changed up the NEXT image you have above the next playing track. i think yours was like 140 pixels or something and mine ended up being something like 849. when i used yours the NEXT was really stretched out and looked pretty bad.
anyway here is a screen shot of my changes..

looking good.

audiosoft. is there a way to be able to skin this area without it stretching when resizing the artist list?

Thanks privatejz, I'm glad you like the skin.

I know, my skin isn't made for very high screen-resolutions. That's another thing on my task-list.
ATM I use 1152 x 864 Pixels. The Skin works also with 1024 x 768 as well.

I like the real bricks in the back. Where can I get the picture? Mine original are "made by Corel-Draw". The real ones looks way better.

I'm also looking for a good "next"-picture.
I thought of styling the "x" like the "X-Files"-X. ;)
But I did not know if this looks good, when eJ streches the picture. Another point is, that the space for X might be to small.

Can I come back to your "playing next"-picture?

Here is my "todays work": A new "now playing"-area.
Gosh! This background-picture won't work on big resolutions.
I think I have to make a second picture for big resolutions.

sure this was a free texture with no copyright attachments so use away.

its a pretty low res image but for this purpose it doesn't really matter i guess.

you might want to re-look at that neon beam that is above the brick. it doesn't tile very well in high res. i adjusted mine so it does however by just cutting your image in half mirroring it and re-saving. that did the trick for me anyway.

keep up the great work..

by the way can you just post the image without the beam for the album track names that you just released. thanks.

pjz.

@privatejz:
Of course I can.
I think I use the right format for your graphic-program, do I? ;)

Ahhhh... I'm sorry, but you have to remove the beams by yourself. I hope it doesn't matter.

Yes, the neon beam "Song Titel" isn't really high res. But I don't have a better version of the picture.

Version 1.5 is now available.

... but I'll added a beta-version of the album-list.

You'll find the normal version in the attachment of this posting.
It's for all screen-resolutions the same.

Wow mchawk! Your "up next" area looks damned good in your 1.5, well on your last screenshot! But where is the big blue star and the "bar" logo in 1.5? This is only for the next version? I'm longing.. :)
Excellent work!

EDIT: Well OK.. I think I understand the situation: you tried to upload your "big" 1.5 version but, as Audiosoft limited the max upload to 10Mb, your 18Mb upload failled. So the skin on the Audiosoft forum is still the previous 1.1 version... :(
