    I agree with hijinks, make it skinnable or recruit help.

    Or you can do both like I am

    hijinks21 & frodobaggins : yeah , of course , a project without skin is not gonna win

    I am currently in development of a new software interface built with C# (.NET) and XML. Should prove to run more efficiently than any VB6 app. It just taking longer than expected to get it finished - my spare time is minimal these days

    By the way mediacruiser source are available on request witout any problem!

    Written in Delphi (should be also more efficiently than any VB app but less than C#...but a good VB app can be faster than a bad delphi app)

    There's no shareware component used inside!

    Just ask...

    Note: I'm writing this software for myself and I am a oneguycoding...so I don't want to be part of a dev team.

    But by sharing the source code we always learn something from the other...

    i agree with ptCruiser. My app is designed how I want it to look and run, but i'm making a system where hopefully you can totally skin it to your liking. So one could change where the mp3 controls are on the screen.

    Managing a group project is though. Like I said there are too many ways to code "hello world" out there for one language and everyone has their own style. Plus everyone seems to know a different language so that doesn't help

    But I do feel the more projects out there that are open will only help the overall scene. A few will take the lead and push the others so it can't hurt. You can take code in any language and get the feel for how someone did it and transfer it to another language.

    I will throw my hat in here. i have been doin graphics for about 5 years now (jesus christ am I that damn old?) just hit me up with what you want. In any format you need it in. Its not like I have a job to go to or anything so I can work on it round the clock if need be. Lets get something goin on.

    I lost 2 nights of sleep thanks to AiPC. I know the damn thing has limitations but I could not get it to do what I want at all. Due to that, I will make one last final version of that and I am moving to VB so that I can have skinnable interfaces and a modular system.

    SJLucky: I will send you an email on graphic options.

    After I start my VB version, I'll PM those of you who would be interested in VB. But if I can do cross platform application (without VB), even better so that people in both *nix and PC can use them.

    So am I. You hit the nail dead on. Development teams are a pain. Esp. on the internet with people having different schedules. But open source where people share source code can and will improve the end products and give ideas.

    what would be super spiffy is if we borrow the idea from Nullsoft with thier winamp 2.x skins. Instead of having the images all flying around having them ziped up in one nice neat file and it would make it much easier to switch skins (e.i. Day Skin, Night Skin, Party Skin, Cop Skin, Porn Skin, etc, etc, etc)
