I've just uploaded a LotR skin. It took me long hours to do, so I hope you enjoy it. I wanted to create one from scratch but my designing skills weren't up to my ambitions so I took the example of many fellow skinners and used the official LotR skin for Winamp 3 adding my personal touch and necessary changes. I'm quite happy with the result except for the jagged outlines but there is nothing to do about it if you're gonna use shapes other than squares or rectangles because the bitmap format doesn't accept transparent or semi transparent pixels.

I wanted to keep the original volume and seek bars both using knob handles (HBtn) but somehow it didn't work, so I had to change them into straight lines (HB). Perhaps if anyone who reads this could explain why it didn't work, I'd learn something useful.

Here's what I did trying to define a volume button sliding horizontally:

ButtonImg=VolBtn.bmp (I have 3 buttons: n,u,d)
PosSize=x,y (where the button starts), length of the button bar, height of the button
