  1. @maxmp, struggling with displaying a properly rounded coloured seekbar and would appreciate some help.

    in attrs-powerui.xml you state:

    "<!-- NOTE: barBitmap/elapsedBarBitmap/barBitmap2/elapsedBarBitmap2 are specifically crafted bitmaps. Height of the bitmap should be >= width of the bitmap.
                 Bitmap is stretched in a way similar to 9-patch images, but only 3 "patches" used - top, middle, bottom.
                 Top is unstretched, height=width*0.5, bottom is unstretched, height=width*0.5 and reset is stretched middle."


    As 9 patch does not provide the correct png, how is "specifically crafted" achieved. Photoshop? 

    Also the sentence

      Top is unstretched, height=width*0.5, bottom is unstretched, height=width*0.5 and reset is stretched middle."

    I find totally confusing., if top is unstretched, what does the height=width*0.5 refer to eg for a png 32*68 px this would be 16. Neither do i understand "reset is stretched middle."

    Can you provide some additional clarification please?

  2. The thing to realise when using wmp to mantain tags is that it writes those changes to its own media databsse. When you later copy these tracks somewhere else, those changes stay behind. Wmp has an option to write the changes to the tracks .

    you use Windows Media Player on a pc to maintain your ratings, make sure you select Tools, Apply Media information changes, to ensure the ratings are written to the POPM tag 

  3. V84 has been released. (it may take a while to appear in Google Play)

    What's New:
    - hide visualisation panel
    - Volume slider positioning, left hand side, right hand side, below albumart, replace seekbar
    - new "dark metal" play buttons
    - new "dark metal" equaliser switches and slider 
    - new "dark metal" equaliser buttons
    and some other bits 

    Want to see your own language and are willing to spend a few hours? get in touch

    Want to see your own high quality icons? get in touch

    This is the most advanced skin available at the moment



  4. As andre pointed out, I  admit, i did not read all this. From a developer point of view, I enjoy what I do and yes, it would be nice to have fancy graphics but a) my photoshop skills are limited and b) it does not warrent to purchase icons and graphics given the low cost of the app.

    If you have royalty free graphics or can provide graphics with a perpetual license, by all means send them. If i like them i might integrate them


  5. First of all, Yaps is a free version which, when published was a "reduced" version of $YAPS$. It is meant to show some of the capabilities/functionality of the paid version. Since its pubication, a lot more development has gone into $YAPS$ so this is now even more advanced.

    As for the graphics (buttons and sliders), I can try and recreate them unless there is someone out there who can supply them. You will find I have a number of choices for play buttons and equaliser knobs.

    Track, album/artist text is below the albumart. In fact the reason I decided to try and create my own skin was exactly because of them on top of albumart. In addition, most artifacts can be hidden in my skins. Repeat, shuffle etc sit below the albumart but can be hidden.

    Over 100 colours (including opaques )are available to set as background but not just for these buttons, you can set background colours on other artifacts .

    Furthermore, a number of other items are available, seekbar, waveseek, volume slider, fonts, fine tuning of sizes etc etc. too much to list

    The basic sliding  behaviours are imho a vast improvement on the older version. 

    The new hide "visualsation panel" option  will be available in the new release.

    To get an idea of options available, have a look here



    ps as it evolves all the time, the menu options  may have changed

    YAPS doesn't have any acceptable GUI styles, they're all as ugly as Eric Stoltz in Mask or the humpback of Notre Dame, just like every metro/flat/material/fluent GUI I've ever seen.

    Can't say I find this encourages me to delve into @DevilSlayerDante's requirements by dissecting this thread. However, if there is a concise problem definition I may look at it.

    I'm struggling to even theme the basic things i cant even imagine how hard it would be to add skin options. 😕
    I would really love to finish this port from substratum theme but it seems it's not an easy task for me

    You are too impatient. You have managed to identify the "easy" bits, Early V3 skin developers did this too but then it gets more complex.

    One tip, ItemTop prefixes are use mainly on the front screen. Once into libraries you look for ItemTrack  prefixes. Use the search function on your pc to search the skin sdk eg the Treble knob search for Treble and then explore the xml files.

    Good luck
