I've just made a Homer Simpson skin to go along with my Homer Simpson theme in the download section of this site.

You place them in ...

'\Application Data\Microsoft\Media Player'

Place them in the directory,

\Storage\Application Data\Microsoft\Media Player\Skins

and just make folders with the skins in them

Try it with this WMP Skin, its an ipod.

Editing bits of it simple, its all simply layed out so everything is in one place.

//  <Item>       <Location>     <Align>  <Font>          <Color>

//  ------       ----------     -------  ------          -------

   Time        39,84,25,15     Right    Tahoma,8,R      49,60,114

   Track#      34,21,20,15     Right    Tahoma,8,R      49,60,114

   #Tracks     67,21,20,15     Left     Tahoma,8,R      49,60,114

   Title       40,34,160,15    Center   Tahoma,8,B      49,60,114

   Author      40,49,160,15    Center   Tahoma,8,B      49,60,114

Its simple, each "Item" has a set of Co-ordinates,Fonts,Colours and Alignments.

I think the Co-ordinates work like this "The first two numbers are coordinates and the last two numbers are dimensions"

The Fonts are simply the Fonts and what formatting it is e.g B=Bold, R=Regular (I think) I=Italic.

Im not sure about how the colours workout though.

Sorry mods for the constant posting but I dont think these posts should all combine as it will be too long.

Any way

I found WMP skins here on Airfagev .

Now i want to install some. Who knows what i should do?

I read it properly now and had a look at the code and the templates.

These are designed for non QVGA devices, so will not work properly at all with the C550's QVGA screen.

I made a Homer Simpson one for my Homer Simpson homescreen.... I posted it in the thread of the download. I know Jamma14s in the middle of making some too.

Theres also a tutorial on how to make them here (although the tut is for non QVGA, the same rules apply)

I think it's weird there are so few WMP Skins available, when i see they can be made by people themselves.. Why does nobody make them??? I dont make them because i dont have so much time, but there must be people out there that want to try that guide...

He's using C550 not PPC mini_man

The first 2 are co-ordinates of the top left of the button area. While the next 2 are sizes of the button area.

Found quite a few over at Nectun in C600 Skins Section
