wow, thank you again for this great skin. hopefully there will be rc of MM4.
unfortunately this won't work for MM3 fully... for example the mainscreen is white.

one thing i noticed when i looked at your skin more closely (never noticed it before):
there are everywhere about 2px borders between the windows/scrollbars. BUT if you move the bar with the playing controls in the main window then there is only a 1px border. is this a bug by MM4 or did you just miss something? :D
here a screen what i mean:

Well your screenshot don't shows the current Mellon version,check first post!
but yes ,the panel / window / border handling from MM is a bit curious,
it's a general Monkey problem in all versions and not satisfactorily resolved until now ,
it's already reported and i hope for fixes in future releases .

Very nice! I like the design.

I haven't upgraded to MM4 just yet, but this is almost reason enough to get me to do so.

Thank you!

If you use MM4 , the mmip file store's the skin.msz into AppData / Roaming / MediaMonkey /Skin folder
and you have to delete the old Skin file in your regular MM Skin folder.
I think so :-?

Greetings

I upload a Aeroplayer version for MM4 ,
and a MediaMonkey3 version with reduce iconset and some small changes;
both are msz files and have to be store in the necessary Skin folders,

also a LyricsViewer skin and MonkeyRok skin ,
both are zip files and have to be unzipped to be stored in the necessary Script/skin folders .

for download look on first side.

Enjoy

Cheers DreadM for putting up the Aero version of the Mellon Skin, it looks top notch, I can see how you've sorted the text out on Aero and it really looks good. I'll still stick to your delletronic skin for most of the time, until I bin my laptop and get a desktop PC and i'll sure be using Mellon on a bigger screen.

Thanks again!

thank you dreadm for the MM3 skin. looks nice!
btw, there wasn't a skin at all at the mediamonkey4 folder (C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\MediaMonkey4\Skins). but well... i just deinstalled MM4 because i do not use it anyway (yet). there is still too much to develop and bugs/improvements sprout out like aspargous after every new inital release. :lol:

one thing though about the MM3 skin (i do not know if it is the same in the MM4 skin):
why did you shose a different colour for the selection in the tree and in the main window. when i mark a artist (or whatever) in the tree it gets purple and in the main window only the whole album appears purple (the selection itself is green - so the rating cannot be seen :().

here a screen what i mean:
tree selection: Image
main window: Image

Nice skin, but the Lyrics Viewer title fonts are too large.

After a few hours use, I love it more.

Very different, very cool.

I still think the Lyrics Viewer title fonts are too large, but I can live with it. :)

You can tweak it to your taste. Just edit this file:
C:\Users\%YOURUSERNAME%\AppData\Roaming\MediaMonkey\Scripts\LyricsViewer\themesMellon\style.css

In the lower part of the file, there are some lines beginning with h1, h2 and so on, with a comment at the end of line (like "/* Song Title */", explaining its meaning.
Just edit the font-size: property in each line as you like and save the file. Then go to MM, right-click LV and select "Refresh".

There are 3 options :
1: to change the select colors
2: change the ratings
3:or both

at the moment i give the green ratings a white border ,same as in the aeroplayer and MonkeyRok skin
looks like this:

what you think ?
