A true delight to see other people than me, Victhor and Mirzi creating something new (nothing against you), am excited to test it!
I made that one skin that one time.

OK, sounds fair, but if you don't make it, don't worry, just release it under a beta tag and we'll see from there.. ;)

First of all...


Well done!! I liked the skin, a lot! Some new bits here and there, I know a lot of skins and can tell what is from where, but I liked how you took the elements from other skins and use / transform it with a specific intention, that denotes good taste and hard work.
There are some bits to improved here and there, but they are mostly small stuff. The only one thing I see that needs to be fix is that you didn't include the source scripts, it's good practise to share it along the release files (even mandatory in the case of the scripts of my skins). Are you planning on sharing it at some point?

Really looking forward to the next build (I bet more color themes are on the plate, right?). Keep up the hard work!!

PS: Extra points for not asking even a single question about the scripts / files / etc.. where did you get the skinning expertise?? This is your first skin?

Hats off to you for coming up with something so new and so great, in 2020 even!
It's really impressive what you've done here and I hope you share the scripts with us, because this is really incredible.
The two infoboxes option for the playlist is what most intrigues me and the way you display the album art of the next song, how'd you do that?! This is great!!!

The Skin Settings window is also really well done and what impresses me the most is switching out the background image amongst other things.

Keep up the great work, I'm excited to see what comes next!

Nice skin, I like the way you have thought of smaller/finer details & implemented them. Also providing power button to close is beautiful.  Giving credits to original skin developer is a good practice & needed, you have not forgotten that. +1 point for it.

really great efforts, even I have a question as rightly said by Victhor; where you learnt skin scripting. I have not seen you asking any questions regarding skin development, or are you an old timer just started on.

keep skinning...

Thank you for your kind words. Now, I'll try to answer all your questions.

As for the scripts, I've written them by a method of trial and error. That's why the scripts are now scattered across different folders and some were even lost). I will definitely upload them as soon as I organize them.

I've been writing my scrips on the basis of the Bento folder' s source.( WaSDP_1.14)


First, I am going to add more colour themes and improve new variants of display.

Finally, the most important part is to add visualization on the same page with video in the SUI window.

I will also create a version for WACUP.

Thank you for this skin. I've been using it with WACUP without any problems. The only thing I request along with the updates you have planned is a notification window. Many skins provide this pop-up that momentarily displays info on a file (including it's album art) as it starts playing and the app's playback status when playback is paused or stopped and when the end of the playlist is reached.

😅 Thank you for the remark. I' ve forgotten about the Notification. I will definitely add this feature soon.

Great! I'll take a deeper look later and check if there's any unnecessary code or leftover to make the scripts tidier / more direct (modding can get quite messy in time, I know).
