Any help is welcome. This Project is now on GIT:
GIT pull adress:
git://github.com/theboxhead/dirtchamber.git
Web page:
http://github.com/theboxhead/dirtchamber

Anyone fell free to Fork and continue Smile

13 August updates
Fixed all the settings menus, small fixes to list views. Added new youtube skin preview
video showing the changes from 09 of august.

09 August updates
Fixed all views in music and movies-
Added new faders on all screens
removed all lines from listviews and added label animations
for all selected items- text now zooms nicely from size 20 to 30 - looks cool.
Given even more space for list views to really maximize the use of the whole screen area.

Decided to post my current work for the past weeks. Started
out as a mod of ronies great Transparency! skin but it has evolved into
something else Wink Much of ronies ideas and views are here so ronie if
this is not okay please tell me. Also feautures the gloss overlays made by djh modified in photoshop, djh if not okay please tell me Wink

Latest preview video should be of some better quality and with correct aspect ratio.

Dont know when i release this, could prolly post a public beta but there is much more to be done.

New Video is up Smile sorry for the trouble !

Good work!

Nice and clean, good views. Feels a little 'springy' at times, but overall I'd love to see where this goes.

wow! great job, congratulations!!

it doesn't really look like Transparency! anymore, it's more a mixture of Alaska and Transparency! (mainly because of the white backgrounds...)
you should definitely change the side menu too, cause it doesn't seem fit your skin at all,
but i'm sure it's still one of those 'to-do' things.

i'm eager to try this one myself, so looking forward to the release! ;-)

i'd definitely try it, but i agree with tmc in that it seems a little springy and bouncy. i'd want to cut down on those animations.

all the music and movie/video views or done, those are the most time consuming. As noted all dialogs, menu,osd is not done yet but they will. Smile

Im doing stuff all the time but as skinners know, it is time consuming as hell
to get everything just right.

Prolly gonna tone down the overall "bouncy" feeling, and the icons on the homemenu scroller should be replaced - but as of know i dont really have anything. So if someone would know about some icons to use or better yet create someone it would be awesome. Probably black/white with blue details is the look im after.

thanks for all the feedback- but as i said its not done yet. If someone is willing to help out coding/finalizing the skin please contact me. Im soon back to work and time will be a limiting factor Wink

Definitely was confused for a second as to why the skin would be named "Youtube Video".. but then realized.. that's probably not the name.

Looks pretty good.

Great, great looking skin! Definitely looking forward to setting it up on my machine. I don't see why you need to change anything ...

I too thought this was a "You-Tube" theme'd skin.. . .

Anyway, this looks good. Smile
