Apocalypse Fall by Saek Apocalypse Fall by Saek
:iconotlplz: This was for :iconsilver-snow-drop:'s birthday last year...and I didn't get around to it...until like May this year e_e;;;; I wanted to try one of those skins that switch the equalizer and main window, because they also looked fun. I liked this when I first made it...but then I looked at it like last week, and was like 'wtf was I doing?' so I tried to change some things...and it just looked worse |D so I guess it'll stay as is. No volume bar, sorry~

I don't think I'll use purple for a while now....

I tried moving it, but I still think I'm doing something wrong. I took a picture, so maybe you could see if you can spot what I'm messing up on?

I'm so sorry I'm bad at this~. orz

Don't worry about it! All programs are confusing when you just start using them! And I'm insanely flattered that one of my skins inspired someone to try Winamp! :heart:

I think I see what the problem is, so tell me if you get lost along the way, or if it just doesn't work.

1) Create a folder in "My Documents" named "Winamp Skins".
2) Hit the "Set skins directory..." button
3) Select the "Winamp Skins" folder you just created from the list that appears.
4) Re-download my Apocalypse Fall skin and save the zip file to your "Winamp Skins" folder.

You should be able to select it =]

Okay, I think that got me a little closer...when I select it it turns everything into...not Waltz. D;

I didn't -save- the zip file to that folder, but moved it there after downloading, is that okay?

I took another picture of progress thus far.

Thanks for being so understanding and helping me~.OTL

I'm not sure if I could explain what looked to be your problem without going into a semi-technical response, but I can try if you like xD So I suggested the new skin directory and fresh zip as a clean slate kinda deal.

And I'm happy to help! :)

Go ahead and get into that response, something's better than nothing~. XD

I never really knew anything about winamp until I looked at your skin, so I'm kinda lame at this.

Should I just uninstall it and reinstall it to start over completely? Because I am clicking to set the skin directory, and for some reason can't get the Waltz skin in there or something, I don't know. ^^;; It looks like the Bento/Big Bento designs are somehow going into the Waltz folder though?

Acccckkk.

Lol, I don't want to scare you away from Winamp ;.; If my explanations are confusing, I'll try screencaps!

I'm not sure if it's a setting, but when I uninstall Winamp, my skins folder is left untouched.

Let's see...

If I remember correctly, a first installation of Winamp contains the Skins folder. Within the Skins folder, there are 3 other folders: Winamp Modern, Bento, Big Bento. The default skin directory is the Skins folder.

Winamp reads folders, .zip, .wsz (classic), .wal (modern) files as skins. If any of those four types are within the chosen skin directory, it will appear in the skin list to be selected and used.

In your 1st screencap, it looked as though the skin directory was your Waltz folder. The about/notifier/player/scripts/shade/etc., folders shouldn't be there, and most likely belong in the Winamp Modern, Bento, or Big Bento skin folder.

Did that help at all?

ParabolaBeam Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2010
Ah, so should I try moving the about/notifier/player/scripts/shade/etc., folders out and leaving the Waltz folder alone?

Er, yeah, maybe screenshots would help after all. I'm so sowwee~. XD

Moving those folders out would just make things look nicer, and isn't really necessary.

To me it sounds like you're having the most problem with the "Set skins directory..." I'll go over my numbered steps with images too this time, ok? ^^ Gimme a few minutes and I should have it!

It's really not your fault! I should have the instructions posted in my gallery anyway xD;

Oh god, please help me. I have no idea how to download this skin. D; I tried downloading the ZIP from this page, and using the tutorial you linked to implement it, but I'm so hopelessly lost. D;

Firstly, -do- I download it here? ^^;;

:iconsaek:
Saek Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2010
Yep, you download it from here! Make sure you don't unzip the skin though.

What part are you stuck at exactly? Getting this skin to appear under your skin menu?

(Also If you know how to change file extensions, you could change the .zip to .wsz and then simply click on the skin.)

:iconparabolabeam:
ParabolaBeam Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2010
Yes exactly, I can't get it to appear under the skin menu. OTL

I tried like, moving the folder to a place where I could click it at the set skin something or other, but just got confused.

My ineptitude at this really bums me out because quite honestly, this skin makes me so happy in the pants. XD

(Dunno how to change file extensions. n////n Sowwee~)

Aw, don't be bummed! We'll figure it out :)

Let's see...did you change the skin directory yet? It was the set skin option. If you didn't, you could simply move the skin to the default skins directory. The default is usually

C:\Program Files\Winamp\Skins

How do you get those players Ive been tring to get one
Reply

Saek Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2010
This isn't really a player. It's just a skin to make the Winamp player look different. You'll need the actual player to use it. The player is free and can be downloaded from Winamp.com : [link]

~malionette has a tutorial for installing Winamp skins. It's here: [link] She also made a tutorial on piecing it together (if it isn't already) as well as moving it. That one's here: [link]

Enjoy! =)

OMG this is just perfect. Its amazing looking. I have never seen a Eternal Sonata winamp skin before and I will always be using this beauty.
What program did you use to make this? I would love to try to make some of my own. Hopefully as gorgeous as this one.^^

this is great, but very common, there are no skins as before, before i found a skin called Hellenium, it was fantastic, so many more skins that innovative, but now almost all are similar ):

BTW, I appreciate your work, continue like that

Yeah, I know what you mean. I try to do a new theme, or test a different technique every time, but I still get the occasional deja vu.

Thanks~! ^^ Good to know these don't go to waste!
