    Its the same concept. You need to know xml. I tried messin with it, but havn't found time to do anything yet. Good luck!

    Winamp 5 supports both the new freeform and older skinking method. You should be able to use either winamp2 or winamp3 tutorial for skinning winamp. But the winamp3 method allows for much more freedom.

    You can probably get started with a basic layout, etc, but for the advanced items, you may need to wait for an official release of winamp5 and skinning/sdk docs to see what components and api function will be fully supported and available for your use. As with Arby's skin, just because it was supported in winamp3 may not mean it will be fully supported in winamp5.

    I did get Arby's skin working with Winamp5 by modifying a few of its maki scripts, but it has too many quirks. At this point, I don't know if its just bugs in winamp 5 or that too many things have changed in the api or are unsupported.

    For example, the playlist is scaled to right size, but it keeps redrawing slightly to the bottom left cascading its way off the desktop automatically when a song is being played instead of being locked in the same position as it does in winamp3. Also, in the alpha the meta data/id3 tags were not implemented yet, so I had to modify it to use only the current playing song title. Although the fonts/colors worked fine in the alpha, but in the beta they do not. etc.

    This is to be expected, as it is only a alpha/beta. I'll probably wait on an official release or a release candidate and some new docs/sdk on skinning and api function before trying again. But by then, [email protected]
    should have an awesome Arby's skin replacement for winamp5!

    Have you tried using Girder to make your ctrl +/- ?

    Arby's skin looks really good...I have a 12.1 LCD will it fill up the whole screen?
    I hope so, is it possible for it to fill up the whole screen?

    if your resolution is 600 x 400 something it will fill up the whole screen. I have 800x600 resolution and it does not fill up the whole screen and i love it that way, because i have copilot running in the back and i can see the next turns and still mess with winamp. So i doubt that with a 12" screen it will fill the whole screen unless you set your resolution to 600x400 something.

    If you don't mind modifiying the skin's xml and make scripts, you can change it to whatever native resolution you like.

    I use a modded skin that runs at 1000x600 on my xenarc wide screen courtesy of inor (http://inorkuo.cjb.net/). It has a mini button on the top bar to quickly minimize the screen to get to Copilot and a gamma/shading component for night driving.
