Convert / Update old skin?
« on: April 23, 2024, 11:01:55 PM »
I just discovered that this player is existing. I was using Winamp since the beginnung.

I also used a skin called "Sonicated".
https://kickbutts.tripod.com/winamp.htm

Unfortunately it is not fully working with this new version. For exampe Album art has no skin.

Is there a way to convert this old skin (zip file with some BMP files) into a new one and add for example the new Album Art window?

The skin is working correctly for one from 1999 which pre-dates the classic skin additions that Winamp 2.9x introduced in 2003.

If you get a copy of the Skinner's Atlas then the gen.bmp & genex.bmp from it are the files that would need to be added into the old skin along with reading the txt file in the wsz (it's just a zip file so there's nothing special about it) or there's an online copy at https://github.com/WACUP/Winamp-Skinning-Archive/tree/master/Classic%20Skins/Skinners%20Atlas to read through.

There should be enough from the old skin to be able cobble something together to create those 2 files & then you can add them into the existing zip file or leave it as a pre-extracted folder within the Skins folder.

Awesome. Thank you. This was really easy  :)

Not the perfect artwork on my side. But this is good enough for my needs.  ;D
