They are what they are - a snapshot in history - and if they still work for you then you are welcome to use them, but they will never have any new features added. So Max didn't make a backup of v2 before making an entirely new UI for v3? If that's the case, he might regret that decision in the future. @flyingdutchman I tried YAPS free, most of the graphics displayed in the screenshots aren't available to try, and I was underwhelmed with the choices available. I'm sorry about my comment earlier, regarding YAPS being unacceptable, that wasn't a stab at you or your work. Obviously you've put a lot of effort into it, I only meant it doesn't offer what I'm looking for in a UI. Notice in the main UI screenshot below, besides the HQ textures, the artist/album/track labels don't obscure the album art, only the repeat/shuffle/Eq/Tone buttons occupy that space, and they're small enough to have a minimal impact on the album art/visualization, plus there's no opaque/translucent background for the repeat/shuffle/etc. buttons to obscure or muddy the art/visualization space. Putting the track details over the album art makes it look messy, making the text translucent makes it difficult to read, and visibility is worse if the visualization is active. So any text in the album art/visualization space is bad design. Also, having a dedicated, uniform space to display track data is cleaner and more concise than having an individual background for each label; the artist - album label is incomplete in the screenshot because it slowly scrolls when the text is longer than the space provided. Only thing I wish this v2 skin did was show a touched button being depressed, but it only highlights with a blue circle.
