Absolutely adore this skin, I've got some small oddities I've noticed during general use:

When the skin is docked (at the top, I presume bottom gives the same issue) and expanded it swaps from the media library tab (the one I last opened) to the visualization tab and starts the visualizer. Basically, every time you expand the docked bar it starts the visualizer.

I've also noticed I can no longer expand from bar mode into full mode when double clicking on the bar, I'm not sure if this is a skin issue, but it seems so.

Hi Celahir, I can't reproduce the docking issue, but I can try to change the Win7 snap feature to behave differently when using Docking.

I disabled on  purpose some original features like that of double click to switch to shade. I'll try to add it for future releases.

When you hover your mouse over the "Track Progress" bar it highlights the whole thing, but the highlight doesn't go all the way back to the end.
I have included a screen shot to illustrate. Let me know if this doesn't make sense.

That's actually intended, a whole glow didn't look good, so I made it like "fade" on each side. There is room to improve the quality of the fade maybe, I'll look into it.

Funny that you didn't notice another thing that is actually wrong there, precisely because of that fade, the beginning of the middle section overlaps with the end of the first section (see screenshot). That probably happens with the end section too, but is not seen because it's covered by the seek thumb.

I am glad that is intended behavior.
I have to say that I still don't see what you mentioned.
Is it one of those "developer" things where you know it is there and it bothers you but no one else can see it?

I'll have a proper look at the settings and circumstances and see if I can recreate it on another machine, aside from that, again, fantastic work!

I REALLY like it, but it doesn't seem to handle my multiple monitor setup.... I normally use winamp modern and have it all on 1 of 3 monitors... when I switch to Big Bento modern, it moves over to the 'main monitor.' When I try to re-locate it back to the other screen, it appears to move but a white outline appears on the side of the monitor that I'm moving from, and when I release the mouse, the main window disappears from the side-monitor and re-appears where the outline was on the side of the main monitor.

Good work though! It looks great!

That's the Snap to windows feature, to move the skin to another screen disable it first (skin settings or trough Right click menus). There is a planned fix on this for the next version anyway!

Ah! Got it! Wow, there are a lot of submunus still to explore! I hit that little thing and chalked it up to my idiosyncratic setup. Thanks!

I'm loving this more and more!

Some remarks:

  • When you "hover" over the tabs the pop up just says "Switch Tabs" Can you make those hover over details say what the buttons actually are? Media Library, Visualization, etc.
  • Is the Browser tab still useful? All it does is tell you that "You've asked for client.winamp.com."
  • Starting up the skin with 2 cd covers feels messy. Would it not look cleaner if Album Art was turned off by default in File Info Components?
  • The notfound cover image and the Shoutcast cover image do not scale up well.

Ey! Sorry it took me so long to reply, I've seen your message on the Winamp Forums but never got around to reply, so I'm doing it here since there are some extra stuff:

Is the Browser tab still useful? All it does is tell you that "You've asked for client.winamp.com."
My intention is to replace it with the Reader from cPro2, but I still haven't got to that.

Starting up the skin with 2 cd covers feels messy. Would it not look cleaner if Album Art was turned off by default in File Info Components?
Well, I intend to add a couple of extra functions to this "feature", like cycling through jpg/png/gif found on the same folder, or even artist picture (from a locally -properly- named file). THEN I will add several options to it, including disabling it altogether.

The notfound cover image and the Shoutcast cover image do not scale up well.
Yeah, this will be fixed for next version!

That is a good idea but please replace AlbumArtExchange with something else because AlbumArtExchange is blocking several countries, including mine.

Which one? The one in the bottom right corner or the one between the songticker and file info? Or both? You can already turn off the latter by clicking on the rectangular ellipsis, selecting File Info Components and unchecking Album Art. What I suggested is start BBM with a single cd cover in the bottom right corner and have Album Art unchecked in File Info Components by default. Whoever likes to watch two album covers can enable Album Art for File Info themselves.

Plus it's a relief it's not a WACUP specific issue unlike we had with the Invicta skin.

Which version of Invicta? Version 1.0, Version 1.1 or Version 1.31?

That issue wasn't down to a specific skin version but how the replacement png image loading worked in WACUP vs native (it related to gamma correction handling which is more of an issue for older png files).
