Latest restricted WACUP beta release is build #13286 (October 21st 2022) (x86 & x64 changelogs) | Latest WACUP public preview is build #7236 (March 11th 2021) (x86 only)


NOTE: Beta testers are added in a limited & subjective manner as I can only support so many people as part of the beta test program to keep it useful for my needs.

Unless I think you're going to be helpful, not all requests will be accepted but might still be later on. Remember that beta testing is to help me & the limitations currently works for my needs for this project.

What Are Your Favorite Modern Skins?
« on: August 04, 2022, 11:23:56 PM »
Modern Skin Fans

This and the next post contain screenshots of the current default layouts for 6 of my favorite modern skins. Other windows are available in each skin for additional features (e.g. media library, queue manager, jump to file, etc.) as needed. The animated features in these skins must be seen to properly appreciate what these skins can do. There are 2 screenshots of the Komodo skin to showcase 2 of it's various views. I have added simple customizations (mostly to the graphics) to all but the Media Tower skin.

I'm drawn to skins with animated speakers. I added those from JVC Tape to the skins that didn't have their own.

I'm heavily biased as I'm working on these directly, however...

Winamp Modern:


It has never looked so great before, even if its just little changes nor many may see, I'm happy it's getting the improvements it really needed in those years.

The Async A-Player:


Something I'm proud of too as it's the first time where I've truly started from scratch and went on with an original design (with the exception that it references something), still unfinished but I hope to work on it again soon.

DeClassified:


Immensely proud of what I achieved with this, building a functional framework that (mostly) works with Classic Skin images (almost) seamlessly and catches almost all the quirks and other features of Classic Skins in Winamp 2.x... no one's done it before.

Hi,

Attached is another screenshot of the ZDL Gold Stack skin. Some of it's component windows can be switched to compact mode (as shown with the equalizer). The bars in the spectrum analyzer window can change colors and modes.

But I find Vic's BBM more useful.

Yeah, I don't use it much, but I like it too. Waiting until I can upgrade to a hi-res monitor so that I can truly appreciate it.

How did you use JVC Tape on a low resolution monitor?

I use the sizing command to scale the 3 main components back.  I have a 1920 x 1080 monitor, 79% works well for me.  :)

Classic Modern by Victhor is what I use.
