Nullsoft Winamp 2000 SP4 v1.3: Colorful Update Part 2
« on: August 21, 2019, 06:54:22 PM »


A Modern Skin aimed to emulate the Windows Classic look and feel before Microsoft got rid of the classic theme option in Windows 8 entirely.
It is aimed at those who use Windows Classic on their machines, or just simply miss the aesthetic look and feel.

What does this feature, besides carrying the features of WCM?

- Near accurate Windows Classic imitation
- Direct support for WACUP (WinAmp Community Update Project)
- Multiple Visualizers for your eye candy enjoyment
- Proper Color Theming support

As this is my first major Modern Skin (which uses Victhor's beautiful Winamp Classic Modern as its base), I would appreciate any feedback for future improvements.

If you want to follow the changelog and report issues (which is recommended), follow through this link, and drop any bugs you may find, however, feedback/suggestions here is highly appreciated

Latest version changelog:
v1.3: Colorful Update Part 2
What's New?

- New: Some minor UI adjustments
- New: Flipped the way the two Zero Two's were looking, now they stare at each other
- New: Slightly improved Ragyo's shadowy Spectrum Analyzers (less dark, more bright)
- New: FPS menu options and lots of separate color schemes for the Visualizer
- New: "More Windows" color theme (thanks to @mirzi1 for the contribution!)
- New: Optimized the top secret Headbanging algorithm for a slightly more realistic headbanging experience
- New: Optimized the VU meter in the VU Meter window, the HL2 Hud window and the glowing light in Ragyo's hair to be faster/slower
- New: "Crimson" color theme kindly contributed by my friend Apache
- New: Clicking in the Satsuki and Ryuko Visualizer now changes the visualizer mode of the 4 vis objects
- Fixed: Improved Wasabi tooltips for 99% windows emulation accuracy
- Fixed: Improved the Modern Skinned (and Classic Skinned) scrollbars to look more windows-like (moreso the Modern Skinned ones)
- Fixed: The clutterbar going blank when disabling alpha in the Modern Skin options (thanks to Victhor for the hint!)

I've noticed that my skin was pinned (thank you dro :) ), this does give me some motivation to work on it again, but due to working again and having little to no energy to sit down and tear this apart again, I'm unable to properly provide updates and fixes to some issues that have cropped up/are on my todo list to fix.

Thanks to anyone so far who has downloaded this skin and enjoyed using it, that alone makes me happy. :)

Oh hey I'm glad I noticed this post. A skin from my favourite Windows. Does it skin all the components of WACUP?

That's a typical question for a classic skin, this is a modern one so it means the job is well done XD

As though I am unable to edit my first post, this is gonna do.

The skin is now (actually a few weeks now) on Github, featuring the latest and greatest features that have been implemented over the time, the current project is to implement Windows Classic like color theming support, as for now, bug fixes and other adjustments have been made, as well as adding Winamp/WACUP detection, thanks to Victhor who helped me out on this one.

If anyone who would like to help me get this thing become better than it already is, download the master branch and go on a bug hunt (or if you live on the edge, you are free to use the development version as well) and report issues, or if you're someone who knows how to handle the Modern Skin engine far better than I do, feel free to help me implement the basis for color theming.

Well, it seems as though there's still some activity going on after what looked to be dead silence.

v1.03.5 has been released, which includes a slew of fixes and overall improvements to the UI as well as some consistency that was much needed through out the skin.

The new release can be downloaded here.

v1.03.6 has been released, it's a small release though, nothing big, I promise.

Version 1.03.7 has been released a long time ago, however, people never really bothered to scroll down to the thread and really read through it (reminds me of how people were mindlessly clicking next on the Winamp installer), thus if you are using a older version of Winamp 2000 SP4, you will not receive any support from me and you are on your own, so do me a favor and please upgrade to the latest version.

Version 1.1 has been released just now, I highly recommend getting this build as it features quite a lot from last time's release...

New Update is good, working fine.
except for one color, Item Selected in Playlist test is too dark. but i don't think we can do anything as it seems to be from Windows color/highlight handling

That is the unfortunate part of the playlist editor not being able to have some sorta windows behaviour, believe me i tried to get around this

I know I haven't posted a lot and kept the release notes of v1.1 quite vague, for which I apologize.
A lot of work has gone under improving everything under the hood to ensure new additions can be made a bit more easier than before (though it'll take some time to get that done).

For those that are following the development on the WACUP discord server, you know what's coming, but for those that don't...

It'll speak for itself.
