    Looks pretty sweet, would make a good night skin. I like the volume and play/pause controls on all of the (or at least those two) screens. More glass like buttons would be cool, I don't really like the fadeout of the buttons at the bottom. The fade doesn't really add anything to the skin and just makes the buttons that much harder to see.

    Also it would be cool if you made the pic at the top reference a file instead of being part of the jpg of the skin - that way we could put any pic we wanted there, or a .swf file.

    volume percentage = good

    Maybe some different up/down buttons for the playlist would be good to differentiate the functions.

    Like I said before it still looks really good now.

    p.s. make sure to include all the new functions like cd ripping and autoupdate

    Absolutly right. That's why I said I wanted to make new buttons like:
    this or like that.

    You can put any .jpg or .swf over the picture. I'll make it optional

    I asked Guino to make an update for assigning popup screens to set the position (is this even english???). Than I will made neat popups with all the new functions

    I would increase the size of the lower buttons because for big fingers they are too small I think. There is empty space on top to move everything a little bit.

    The rest is very cool, I like it a lot.

    Which font do you suggest? www.dafont.com has many fonts to choose. I personally like LCD fonts, aswell the font used in Centrafuse.

    The lower buttons are 100px width and 80px height. That's more than big enough (I tested it! )
    The empty space on top will be used for popup screens and other functions. I don't think I will add the trackname in other windows than audio player because I don't see the advange of it. Anyway thanks a lot for all comments, and keep them comming...
