Doesn't work for me. Give me the error: '<Control>...</Static>' is not wel-formed. And nothing seems to be working. Only Windows 8.1 borders and wall FCOAR edition instead of DASH edition. BTW FCOAR skin is giving the same error.
Like I told catchycatchy, nice to see some love for PotPlayer..But you guys should really improve on the functionality of the PotPlayer skins. Just slapping a few tiny buttons on a new background and calling it a new skin is really cutting corners bigtime. Having to install a whole new visual style just to get that topbar, comeoooon..It seems you spend more time on the screenshot/presentation than on the actual skin Sorry for being harsh about it. When the skin has a nice playlist, topbar, alternative right-click functions, logo integrated, bookmark indicators, Direct 3D9 option, larger time indicators ( they are hardly visible here ) etc etc etc etc, I will be more than happy to return and kiss your magnificent ass. But until then, this gets a big thumbs down from me. I'm sure people who demand nothing more than a play button from their mediaplayer will be happy with this.
I know what you mean, I made a bunch of PotPlayer skins a couple of years ago under the name of laxorm. Mine are Z, Zoon, Zetro to name but a few. PotPlayer sure don't make things easy when it comes to skins, my superawesomecoding goes like this: wtf is that, what if I change it to this ooor this. Oh ok, crash. Let's revert. Fuck. More coffee. Someone give me drugs please. So in the beginning I messed around and compiled a skin roughly 300 times before I thought it was done. And looking at that skin today, it's garbage. The first advice I would give is to pick a great skin to modify, that has everything working. Playlist, controlbox etc. On my page you find a link to a skinpack with over 500 skins to choose from.. Direct3D9 is the transparent overlay effect, you can also make a "floating" bar, mac-style, using that stuff. In the skin xml the Direct3D9 bits are within the MainSkinAreaOscInside parameters. Then of course there are commands you can use, for rightclicking a button. So that rightclicking the pause button could mean stop, or anything else you might like. The possibilities are endless..and time-consuming. In my PreMod Beta skin I put a lot of commands in the playlist, seemed like a brilliant idea at the time.. That skin is a mod from Premo made by Aaron-A-Arts aaron-a-arts.deviantart.com/ar… who made it from my Zoon skin. So everyone is sharing and caring here haha. I have a folder where I have collected my ideas for my next PotPlayer skin, the skin to end all skins, but looking at it I just wanna cry. I don't have the time to do all I would like to. Anyways, I made a little mod for you. I just added the logo and removed some useless .png's you had there. I named your logo "1" so look for that in the .xml to see where it goes within the code. www.datafilehost.com/d/304898a… Feel free to ask for solutions if/when you hit a wall
No problem, good luck man.. Oh another little trick, to make a frameless version UseWindowFrame='0'. Those can be named 0,1,2, or 3, all are different. Note that the playlist also has that command. In your skin you'd have to change the second instance of UseWindowFrame because the first one is related to Direct3D9 which is a disaster in the skin you used as reference.
