Altering "Messages" in Wincab 3.1.4
« on: November 16, 2007, 10:12:54 pm »
First let me start off by saying this program is great.  I found it very easy to use and very easy to tailor to what I was looking for....

After reading Chris' thread on creating a new skin, I created a variation on the cd4-2 skin adding Alpha up and down buttons and a pause button.

However, what I would really like to do is change how some of the messages are output.  I would like to be able to put "Artist" on top in the "Now Playing" section with the "Song Title" underneath and I would like the message in the upcoming songs area to be displayed as "Artist" - "Song Title" instead of just "Song Title". 

Does anyone know if alterations like this can be made?

Thanks in advance...

Also, here is the background jpg for skin I altered...

Not yet, but it's coming, hopefully for 4.0.
