New modification :P  added the new expand/collapse pixmap from windows vista.

(http://img223.imageshack.us/img223/3360/niucx3.jpg)

More details to check still :P

@jester: Yes, you could take it when i've released the skin  :wink: some resources can't be found with standard decompilers and need to be ripped manually ( Print Screen, paste in Paint, retouch and edit in some graphic software).

(http://img22.imageshack.us/img22/2108/brand.jpg)

Also fixed the alpha in the mailbox PNG, replaced the tray icon for unread mails with the new one, added the blue web status square, and more little things.

Release soon, and update for the another WLM skin fixing some bugs. :wink:


Title: My WLM 2009 Skin
Post by: MÅÐKņ on March 23, 2009, 08:28:02 pm
Update for both WLM and WLM 2k9 skins :D added the compatibility with this 3rd party plugins:

- TeX
- Check Spell
- Send Draw

And updating graphics for the SVN version, Colorize, and the Call bitmaps.

(http://img7.imageshack.us/img7/8277/amsnu.jpg)

You could ask for more plugin compatibilities :D

Edit: :lol:

Finished the emblems

Post by: AL3X2 on April 14, 2009, 09:20:13 pm
AWESOM !!! This skin rocks !!! You're the best ;)


But one little thing. The systray icon is too small on 1280x1024.

Look at this screenshot:  http://img177.imageshack.us/img177/2699/screen53.jpg

Is it supposed to be like this :S ?

It's suposed to be this:

(http://img24.imageshack.us/img24/305/amsn.jpg)

The statusbar icon is 15x15 cause is the size of windows systray, but well, i'll try to redo the icon to port it to unix/linux systems. Thnx 4 the Feeadback :D


@linux3114a:

Thanks 4 the comment :D  :D

One question...

How to remove the "not in list" red x on contacts?


Title: My WLM 2009 Skin
Post by: MadAGu on April 27, 2009, 11:37:57 pm
Great skin!


Title: My WLM 2009 Skin
Post by: MÅÐKņ on May 01, 2009, 03:27:39 pm
@constantijn: Search in the pixmaps folder the red x file and replace it with a transparent file or a file of 1px x 1px.

@MadAGu: Thnks :D


Title: My WLM 2009 Skin
Post by: MadAGu on May 01, 2009, 11:07:48 pm
one problem i just notice , nothing so important but i can't see the greyline


Title: My WLM 2009 Skin
Post by: MÅÐKņ on May 11, 2009, 04:42:35 pm
Well, i've tried the Linux/Unix and the systray icon is the same that appears in the contact list, and the greyline only appears when you send a nudge :roll: doesn't have the same actions than the windows version. I'll ask how the skinning functions in Linux. :P Thnx 4 the advice :D

Hey there!

Thanks for this skin! It looks great!

There are some buttons missing to skin, though, like the video call one, but I hope you can do it whenever you have the time

Thanks again

Also compatible with Windows 7 Superbar :wink: update release coming soon :D


Title: My WLM 2009 Skin
Post by: nacho182 on September 28, 2009, 01:01:19 am
I like the skin quite alot... the only things that I do not like, hope you do not get it the wrong way, is the spaces between the last contact on my online list and the mobile tag same with the mobile tag and the offline list. Also, in WLM09, your nickname/personal messages does not change colours, just the the lines around your buddy icon changes... if you are away it turns orange. It would be nice if everything else would stay black, my status text and nicknames on the list no matter their statuses.


Title: My WLM 2009 Skin
Post by: MÅÐKņ on September 28, 2009, 08:17:34 pm
:D Thnx for you feedback. :wink: Yes i know that some users didn't like the nick coloring feature in the skin :P i only have do it to see the features that aMsn have that WLM doesn't have :P but don't worry, in the next release i will put both versions, the plain black classic, and the nick colored version :wink: about the spacing in the contacts i don't know how to do it :shock: but well i will take it on my mind for the upgrade. :wink:

Hey madkat! would you know how could I solve this by myself?


Title: My WLM 2009 Skin
Post by: MÅÐKņ on September 29, 2009, 06:17:09 pm
In the Linux/Unix version you need to convert the status icons in the winicons folder of the skin, and replace it with the corresponding pixmap in the pixmaps folder :? is the only solution that i can see :P that seems that i need to release a unix vesion separately too :lol:


Skin updated!!! Get it from the first post! :wink:

Congrats for the skin!! Thank you!

I really loved the tray icon fopr linux but personally I did not enjoy much the window icons, so I decided to adapt the skin to my tastes as you can see below. I just dumped the files from the Windows version of the skin. If you want, I can upload it somewhere. Cheers!!

I have just overwritten the graphics from the skin for Windows, I can send them to you if you want to. I have no idea for skinning, so it's not  a big deal!

Oh...which one should I use? The WLM skin or the Mac skin? They are both great!

Thanks for making those two great looking skins! aMSN looks a lot better now.

Great messenger, good looking skins.

Post by: Kalinda on October 28, 2009, 10:24:34 pm
Hello!

This skin is pretty awesome, but I do have one request. I noticed that you use the same tray icon for appear offline and offline. Perhaps you could change the offline one so that it has a red X in the square or make the whole icon gray or something? Just to be able to tell it apart from the appear offline one. I find it sort of confusing/annoying that they're exactly the same because I use appear offline a lot.

Thanks!


Title: My WLM 2009 Skin
Post by: awesomemac on October 29, 2009, 11:39:58 am
I've written it before; I really like your WLM skin, but...

I've got another request: Can't you change the soundfiles? It's almost impossible to hear the online, nudge, new email sounds. Not to mention the offline sound, terrible.

I changed them myself, but can we expect other soundfiles in an update?
