SimpleX 0.34 by r4dius SimpleX 0.34 by r4dius
Hi people,

looks like I forgot to post this version more than 6 months ago when I added the notifier ...
so as requested here it is ^^,
it's enabled by default and can be tuned in the "Options (Simplex)" window (then click the right arrow on top),
as I'm writing this I'm wondering why I didn't include album art in it,
so I may add it next time :)

Some color themes were added too, but not much ^^

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

Update 27 sep 08:
-Added notifier and some color themes
-Fixed some bugs for sure, but can't remember what

The skin was made using Winamp 5.52 (it should work with older versions but I can't guaranty),
there's at least one bug I couldn't fix, when switching form this skin to another one then coming back, some random window may appear :?

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) :)

TO CHANGE THE COLOR THEME:  Just like with regular Winamp, you change color themes.  Right-click Winamp, then go to Options, and then open Preferences. On the left collection of menus, go to Skins, and then Modern Skins. Then open the Color Themes tab.

Dear R4dius,

Thank you so much for making this beautiful skin! After searching a long time for a super-clear, minimal skin suited to my needs I found SimpleX :) Tip: Maybe you could add something that shows whether 'repeat 1 song' is on or off (comparable to normal repeat, but just 1 song repeats over and over).

greetings from Jelyx

stepankrb Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2012
Hi, I like this particular skin. Alas, it doesn't support cyrillic - or at least I can't seem to figure out how to show cyrillic in the ticker and alert window. Could you please tell me how to make the skin show the cyrillic or add the feature to the next version? Thx.

Thanks, this skin is exactly what I was looking for!! :D
EmLeingod Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2010
This may be a dumb question, but how do I change colors?

I can't figure it out...

Very nice skin :3
JDCguitar Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2009
sweet!!! finally a thin bar mode I like more than the bento default

if the notifier had album art and similar behaviour to the bento one it would be perfect!!! for me anyway :D

cjay Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2009
simply wow
bettyboop2trendy Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2009
Nice,how do I change the color?
ekowalski Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2009
I used the first version way back when, and went looking for it again today since I just started using winamp again. Am stoked about a new version, thanks!
Eternal-Spark Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2009
All of a sudden I've had this problem with this skin - the add button at the bottom of the playlist pane has dissapeared! Do you have any idea?
vipiish Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2009   Interface Designer
Is there anyway that I could change the font-size of the "notification baloon"? The size is almost to big!
robbery Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2009
...maybe some more color themes in the next version?...
robbery Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2009
The Best WinAMP skin, currently.
masurke Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2009
to add a higlighted text color in playlist in pink color theme for the track that's just played open the *.wal-file with winrar, extract all files, open skin.xml, look for <gammaset id="Pink"> and the line
<gammagroup id="gamma.textselected" value="-2000,-2000,-2000"/>, and change it to
<gammagroup id="gamma.textselected" value="-1500,-1500,-1500"/> for example..

save the file and copy the folder with all files into your Winamp\Skins\ directory (-:

Fabulous, just can't get the Album Cover to work..
r4dius Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2009
Thanks :)
album cover only shows if you enable it in the options and have a file with anyone of those names (in the same directory as the playing song):


please let me know if it's still not working :)

Best skin for Winamp.
ZileXa Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2008
Hey r4dius I have 2 questions/bug:

- The Dynamic Library window is called "Station Info" instead of Dynamic Library. Seems a minor bug?

- I replaced the [O]ptions button for [M]edia [L]ibrary button in the skins settings, but how do I set it to open the Dynamic Libary instead of the normal library?
r4dius Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2009

I'm using an old 5 winamp version and I have no idea what the Dynamic Library is, please let me know and I'll have a look :)

Actually you can only switch from Option to Playlist button, you can change what the Playlist button will open by editing this line in the skin.xml file

<togglebutton id="pledit" action="TOGGLE" param="guid:pl" x="-41" y="5" w="16" h="16" relatx="1" image="img.empty" activeImage="img.displaybutton" alpha="150" rectrgn="1" tooltip="Playlist"/>

you have to replace "guid:pl" but as I don't know the dynamic playlist thing I don't know by what ^^
ZileXa Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2008
this is by far the most simple and clear skin that also looks really nice. Most skins, the most important buttons aren't very clear.. this skin is my favourite!
carlfoxmarten Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2008
I'd love to use this skin!
It looks so well designed.

Unfortunately, I don't know of a Linux media player that supports Modern skins... -_-
(and no, I'm not trying to ask you to port this to Classic)
ice--fox Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2008
how can i change the color ???
masurke Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2008
right-click winamp -> options -> color themes.

P.S.: Still great work. Has been my winamp skin for several months now.
digitalruse Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2008
I have noticed a small bug. Trying to use a global hotkey to display the notifier isn't working.
digitalruse Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2008
Notifications made this perfect. Thanks.
