SimpleX 0.33 by r4dius SimpleX 0.33 by r4dius
New version 0.34 is now available > [link] <


I finally added a thin shade (bar) player - you'll notice if the player is too small in shade mode, the "screen" will cover all the player area then it'll reduce and show the buttons when mouse is over - and two shade modes for the other windows :)

There's a readme picture in the zip, it shows how to use the shaded player if needed.

To get the same font in playlist you have to
-install hooge6.ttf [link] (copy it to your windows/font folder)
-in winamp go to "Options / Preferences / General Preferences / Playlist"
-set "Playlist font size" to 8
-uncheck "Use skin or language pack font" and select "hooge 6" in the "Use font" dropdown list

Have a look in the "Options (SimpleX)" menu if you want to change the background opacity, if you click the song informations (stereo ...) in the player window it'll toggle the album title.

Update 12 oct 06:
-Added "classic title bar buttons" option as requested a long time ago ^^
-Now title bar button icons stay visible when changing opacity
-Added "full" dark, dark blue and full dark blue themes

Update 16 oct 06:
-Fixed a bug when playing wma streaming
-Added "Orange" and "You've to like yellow" themes + "Version2" submited by jasmin986

Update 23 may 07:
-Fixed various bugs
-Added shade modes (1 for the player and up to 2 for the other windows)
-Added player width enlargement (by request)
-Replaced the "ML" button with "O" for the skin option window (but you can switch wich one to show)

Update 09 jun 07:
-Fixed media library opening bug
-Changed standardframe.m so you only need to click playlist once to get it selected (for scrolling etc...)

Update 13 jun 07:
-Added "Docked Toolbar" compatibility for player shade
there's actually a glitch in Winamp with skins using alpha blending (like mine), if using desktop alpha when docking / undocking a window it can disappear, you can prevent that by disabling desktop alpha before docking and re-enabling it after docked, the bug should be fixed in the next Winamp release ( [link] )
-Added visualizer to player shade (when width is twice the original)

Update 10 jul 07:
-no real update just added the font file and a readme.txt about how to set the playlist font

Update 17 dec 07:
-Added (small) cover display
-Fixed some bugs:
+error with the remaining time from streaming
+a bug in winamp 5.36 hiding the first song info character
+stuff I forgot

The skin was made using Winamp 5.35 (it should work with older versions but I can't guaranty), you should consider upgrading at least to 5.36 when it's out as it'll fix a bug with "Docked Toolbar"

There's not much color themes, if you create some cool ones feel free to mail 'em to me (mail is in the skin informations) :)

Hi, I just started using this, and it's freaking awesome, but the album art isn't changing for me?
The album cover's stuck on the first song I played on it with the skin.
Even if I click "next" a thousand times, it won't change. I've tried restarting it several times, too.
I read your comment a few above mine, and all my music folders have a cover picture file, so that's not the problem.
Is it possible for it to instead read off the actual music file instead of the folders?
Also, certain characters and foreign languages are only showing up as squares. Is there a fix for this?
Please reply; thank you! (:

xcentricece Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2009
I've been using this since the first week it came out. I haven't been able to use anything else. The shade mode is my favorite of all. Thank you for creating this; I know i'm late on the thank you. ;x

This is great, thanks...
I was looking for a good winamp skin, but yours is the better! ^ ^
Sellwin Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2009
This is beautiful hope i get it to work :D
lethalNIK-ART Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2009
the transparency option RULZ @_@~!!!
Urban-Japanese-Style Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2008
Is the cover art picked up from the ID3 Tags?

All my tracks seem to pick a random cover from another file in my music folder...
r4dius Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2008
it actually uses the first file (from the song folder) it can find from this list
Urban-Japanese-Style Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2008
Thanks. Gonna have to start using Winamp more XD!

The skin is great but it would be even better if there was an ability to change font in main window.
I would like Cyrillic alphabet and other signs (like Polish and Czech) to be displayed :)
rosaarvensis Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2008  Hobbyist Photographer
Heh, I found how to do that in winamp options. Now I can say that your skin is perfect! :love:
ssabfoeca Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2008
Amazing skin, I thought there would never be one that meets all my needs, a simple small playlist, a thin stick version, a used progress bar and one that works with the latest winamp under Vista (I've had a lot of crashing problems). But it seems you've done it, respect!
ferris-rain Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2008
really nice, like it a lot =]
BrushAway Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2008
This is amazing. Probably the only modern skin I'll ever use. It matches any desktop. It's perfect :D

My favorite Winamp skin! Appears broken in Vista SP1 with Winamp 5.531. :( It "works" but takes FOREVER for the Winamp window to display (minutes) and sometimes gives endless strings of cryptic error messages. It used to work perfectly with slightly older versions of Winamp and Windows Vista.
Flakess Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2008
Awesome job! I'm working on a mod, but can't reveal a snap-point in the code. Help is needed...

metsjeesus Featured By Owner May 25, 2008
It's awesome, I wish I could change the colour of the playlist background though since I'm used to having that open. Otherwise it rocks !
masurke Featured By Owner May 17, 2008
Is there any place where I could find additional color themes?

..still love and use the theme!

Sweet! A brown color theme would've been nice though.. but orange is good enough.

Sorry for me english :)
I try to add show cover art script from Bento to this fantastic skin, but nothing happens (( Window with art be "un-skinned" and look like winamp 3 :(
Also when i install AudioCover plugin (link: [link] ) i see same unskinned window :(
Using separate plugin reduce stability of winamp. so can you add Cover art in skin? (like in Bento)
Thanks a lot for your Great Work!
ergosteur Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2008
Thanks for this, nice clean skin.
Would it be possible to make it display art from the ID3 tag?
DotSyouRFate Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2008
I love that trasparency, but i also love the Bento skin (stock)

Really nice skin, unfortunately I am getting an XML Null object error in 5.52 when I open the Media Library. :(

Doublemind Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2008
i love your skin, it's really brilliant - simple and usable as the name suggests, but still nice to look at, just a pleasure to use!

a few suggestions:

- when I click into the search input field or right-click somewhere to open the context menu, usually the first click is not succesfull, i.e. text input doesn't work and I have to click again or the contect menu flashes up for a fraction of a second and closes this a known problem? is there a solution? it's not a big problem but a little annoying.

- it would be good if the cover-display function could look for any "*.jpg" file in the album folder, because the images are not usually called "cover.jpg" but e.g. "albumname.jpg" etc.

- also, the album cover doesn't seem to change correctly when a track with no cover is played afer a track with a cover. then the cover of the last track which had one is shown, instead of none

these are the things which catched my eye so far, apart from that overall, it's an absolutely great skin. thanks for the work!

Very nice skin, but unfortunately, it crashes winamp (v5.52) on Vista HP x64
masurke Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2008

Seems there's too much to discover for me

..covers my idea basically :o

kewl, masurke
xIchigo Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2008
how did you get the title of the song so big on the skin on the far right
i got it like that once...but forgot how to do it again
r4dius Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2008
click either the "O" if it's on the right or right click / Options (Simplex) / Big song ticker :)
masurke Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2008
one idea:

In shade-mode there's two lines:
filequality/album title & artist-song title, length.

You can switch between filequ. and album title.

What would you think about a third option: Just Artist-Song title, length (so, one row basically with a bigger (better-readable) font-size)?

Hum, I'm not having such problem, is it still there with last skin and winamp versions (and is it with my skin only) ?
