    just got the skin updated, all the labels (other than the audio controls), and the lists can now be changed on the fly thanks to el camino's script and help . here's a screenshot of how it looks:

    How do you get to this new feature from within the skin?

    sorry about that, its a click and hold on the font color button. it should load the font list, but if you change the font, you will need to reload the list (using the load list button) this screen isn't 100% done, but its close.

    Some feedback..

    The font changing works perfect. It would be even better to get a preview of the actual font highlighted as opposed to the font that's currently being used by the skin. Also (and this may be 'cause the screen is not 100% done) i couldn't find a way to scroll down to see more fonts.

    In the audio browser, the "play sel" does nothing.

    The skin is great, thanks for sharing.

    for the font size, you can try "EVAL" see the "skin commands.txt" this can be done the way you guys do the color change, but in this case just do a percentage equation, the 100 % is the font size you have at starting, then input how bigger or smaller you want the fonts to be adjusted. is just an idea to start.

    the list is an ilist, but i will be adding buttons for scrolling. as for the audio browser, i will have to look at that when i get back home (im gone for turkey day), but if i remember correctly, i think i just have a play command for the play sel button, not 100% sure though. i will also try to get the font preview working as it should.

    any other input on the skin? as always i will be glad to include screens that others have made using the psd's for function that i haven't made.

    new release is up, this one has on the fly font size changing, and a few other things have changed (fixed play sel buttons, etc). The font size code is kinda sloppy, but it works lol

    here's a shot of the font/font size screen:

    Nice!

    Is there something else needs to be installed? The fonts aren't showing.

    forgot to mention, there is a button to preview the font/reload the skin, it is the big box over the artist name size button. other than that, any other input/ suggestions?

    It is a bit (ok, a lot) cumbersome and confusing. when you hit the preview button, it spells out the name of the font that's selected in the list, but in the font that's being currently used by the skin ie. the preview reads "arial" but it's in "times new roman" font. Confusing.

    Also, the preview is kind-a useless 'cause if you select a font from the list; hit the preview button to see what it look like then hit "change" - nothing happens. You have to go from selecting the font from the list directly to "change" for the font to change; in that case you get no real preview 'cause the preview that's showing is the font that the skin is currently using, not the one you're about to change to.

    It is not very intuitive, lots-a buttons that is not obvious what they do or in what sequence to press them. Some instructions perhaps.

    Please don't take it as criticizing you work, it's amazing it can be done in the first place, much less perfect.
