So you want a skin with areas that are simply put, transparent? Well, this is a highly tricky task. The file you need is called region.txt and the way to do it is a lot like playing connect-the-dots.
Region.txt provides a set of names such as Normal, WindowShade and so fourth. These set points define how many points make up each window. Another set defines how to draw the picture over Winamp.
Region.txt has 4 regions (the sets). They are delimited with the following tags:
Each of these provides a list that constist of two parts. The first gives the number of points that make up a region. The second is a list of the points used to make those regions.
The lines are:
The NumPoints list must be on a single line with comma separated numbers.
Example: NumPoints = 4, 4
Each number, x, says to read the next x points of the list and plot the region they define. The points list is comma seperated pairs of x,y co-ordinates. For example:
NumPoints = 4, 4
PointList = 0,1, 275,1, 275,14, 0,14, 3,15, 272,15, 272,113, 3,113
Defines two rectangular regions to be drawn. For more information read the comments in the region.txt file in the base skin. You will find a little more explanation in this file. The only item missing is the EqualizerWS group which is new and will be defined at a later time. "Normal" defines the regions drawn for the main window, WindowShade is the regions drawn in the windowshade mode. Equalizer and EqualizerWS are the same as above. Use the examples above to work out the other points.
Created in May 2000 by Alex Fraser, in 3DS and Photoshop... so named because it has kindof skewed windows. As much as winamp would allow anyway.
I was going for very mellow colours, but i think i'll make a version with slightly different ones.
Feel free to distribute this, change it, whatever, but please give me some credit if you do : )
