Process for porting winamp2 style skin to modern ?
« on: February 01, 2018, 11:45:02 PM »
ArcticAmp is one of my favourites, but not being modern the other bits of the UI are a bit lacking.

What sort of process would I have to go through to attempt a remake as a modern skin ?

Are there any tools that can help, and if not, whats the manual process like ?

The simplest option would be to try & make use of which you take the image files from a classic skin & add them to it as needed to make a modernised version. There's a few quirks with this solution but for the most part it'll look & work like expected whilst gaining the ability to do custom scaling, etc (it's quicker than waiting for me to get all of the classic skinned windows working with double-size support in WACUP, heh)
