Can we do a "Post your skin here" topic?
« on: May 01, 2006, 09:51:25 am »
Chris, well, can we??    ;D

I've modified the AJ8 skin to suit my tastes, and I'm sure others have done the same on their jb's.

I suppose you could then pick your favourites and add them to the next release  :)

Please do!  There are definately not enough skins, and I am certainly no artist...

I've got a 2 up CD skin that I've created.   It's 1024 x 768 and mainly designed for a touch screen and DOScab.   I've played around with adding different buttons,  but I think this is the "basic" version.   I just need a place to upload it to.    Maybe I'll just email it to Chris and anyone can use it.

# DOSCab/WinCab Jukebox Skin File
# Version 3.0
# By Chris La Mantia

# Notes:
# - Supported image formats at this time are BMP, LBM, PCX, and TGA.
# - Colors may be specified as hexadecimal RGB codes (FFA0CC) or by name.
#   A reference to named colors can be found in docs/colors.htm.

[skin]
# All of the dimensions of objects in this file are relative to
# this image.

background=bgcd2up.jpg


# Display definitions
#
# There are four displays: the Now Playing display, the Coming Up/Most
# Popular Songs display, the Selection display, and the Credit display.
# Status messages appear on the Coming Up display.
#
# Displays have the following parameters:
#
# enabled - Set to True to enable the display, False to disable it. 
# You may, for example, want to disable the Credit display if your
# jukebox is not set to accept credits.
#
# x, y, w, and h - The position and size of the display.  These are all
# relative to the skin background image and not the screen resolution.
#
# lines - Sets the number of lines used by the Now Playing and Coming Up
# displays.  The size of the dot-matrix display font will automatically
# be adjusted to fit the specified number of lines in the height of the
# display.  The Selection and Credit displays always show only one line.
#
# color and bgcolor - Sets the color of the font and the color of the
# display background.  See the note on how to specify colors above.

Above is a CD 2-Up CD skin for 1024x768.  I set it up for a touch screen for DOSCab.  Copy the text to a skn file and click on each link to download the two images to your skins directory.  Then add your names skn file to your jukebox.ini as the skin. 

I've turned off the motion (sliding) of the CD's in the version I'm using but I've left it in this one.   There is a touch "spot" in the lower left that turns the radio on/off.   You can also touch to the left of the currently playing song to skip it and move to the next song.  To the left of the queued list will bring up the popular songs. 

I keep changing it around as I play with it but I thought it might be of help to someon else.
