Big Bento Modern v1.1.5
« on: May 16, 2018, 10:12:03 PM »



Tired of Winamp looking so old and microscopic? Big Bento Modern is a complete re-design of the last Winamp default skin, aiming to be readable -and usable- on high resolutions, with a fresh look and smooth animations.

Years in the making, it's now offered for free, spread the word if you like it and/or donate what you can (with PayPal) so we can keep our beloved music player really up to date.


____________________________________________________________________________________________________________


Zip file includes standard and a Windows 10 styled version, both with light mode. Just place all folders (don't rename it!) on your Winamp skin's directory. Read the included .txt for extra details on the skin, languages and WACUP related info.

* Polish lang pack done and updated by Paweł Porwisz and french by Azuryth, big thanks to both of them!
* Also, big thanks to Darren Owen for the shortcuts used on Playlist info buttons.

Victhor,
Thank you for your work. Thank you for your passion. Thank you for this amazing skin!
I've already said that, but you can repeat it forever. The skin is just great. Plenty of options, features, amazing graphics, every pixel means something :)

Polish translation works very nice (tested with Winamp). I hope, DrO will work even harder (is this even possible?) to add translation system to WACUP (then translators can start his work to prepare language pack for WACUP - I really hope someone from community will take on this hard task... For sure I will try).

Ps: At times like this, I think to myself I have not wasted my time on supporting Winamp...

-Pawel

Wow! Thanks for your words, I love to see people enjoying my work this much, specially other devs! ;) . I wish I only could be faster to deliver, 2 years is a lot of time (I left it untouched for months at time, but anyway..).

Indeed, luckily by the time this happens it will surely have spanish and polish translators XD .

Ps: At times like this, I think to myself I have not wasted my time on supporting Winamp...

The future of Winamp is on our shoulders now.. can be hard at times. Sometimes there´s a feeling that our work goes for a small handful of people, but from time to time I can see how Winamp is still present on the general internet culture and feel a little bit better.

I've been playing with all of the settings (so many settings!!!)
However, under the settings appearance menu, there is a choice for "Enable Button to show hidden tabs"
I cannot see what that button does or what it changes. What am I missing?

Thanks for this amazing skin. I love the new font and font sizes!

Great update!
However, I'm having two problems:
1. If I pause playback while the notification is visible, the notification won't disappear (and will even pause the fading animation) until I click on it or resume playback. This problem already existed in the previous version. Hoped it would be fixed in 1.0
2. I can't enter the 'search playlist' bar anymore by clicking on it. My current workaround is to right click it, then select an item from the search history and edit it. Pressing esc to exit the search bar won't work either. This issue is new in 1.0

still loving the skin ;)

This enables a button to avoid the need to manually resize the player to reach bottom tabs. See the gif =)


@ParadoXx:
1. Wow! This is on my end too, will fix it.
2. Weird, I changed the behaviour a bit to exchange the Search button for the "Clear search" but the bar is untouched, I can't reproduce it in fact. Do you have a custom font set?

Problem solved. I use the Windows 10 edition. There are some lines in the playlistpro.xml still saying "...file="@SKINSPATH@\Big Bento Modern\...", which doesn't exist anymore.
This also caused an error message on Winamp startup and the disappearence of the search bar after I deleted the old folder.
Renamed the path entries and it works just fine now ;)

Thanks for the info, I was noticed about the nonexistent files asked through another channel, it's fixed now (this is consequence of the last minutes changes of every release..). The notification is a bit trickier so for the time being I've disabled the notification triggered when pausing. Changelog updated.
