Default 8. Creating a complete New Skin.

8. Creating a complete New Skin.

It is not hard at all to create a new Skin in Skinmaker, once you know how to edit a Skin.
You have to find a main image and button files. See point 6.
And you must have some basic knowledge of Windows Explorer to copy and rename files.

Go to the Skins-folder, usually here: C:\Program Files (x86)\Webteh\BSplayer (Pro)\Skins.
In the Skins-folder create a new subfolder (=Skin name). Copy all your images to that folder.

In Skinmaker: Menu bar > File > New Skin. Click OK at the “attention” message.
Browse to the folder with your images. Skinmaker will automatically make a Skin.ini there.

In Skinmaker, go through all options, starting at the top-left, ending at the bottom-right.
Just follow the same descriptions as under: “5. Create-Edit a Skin in Skinmaker.”:
- Add Main.bmp. Select Any Shape or not.
- Add Buttons. Select Normal/AnyShape/Transparent. Assign Button-Actions, and Texts.
- Add Text-Objects, and edit font type and colours..
- Add Time Line and Volume Slider. (there are many options for them.)
- Perhaps edit the colours of the right-click Menu.
Done. :-)

You can also design a Full Screen Panel. (If not, the Base-Skin FS-Panel will be used.)

To design: Extended Panels / Media Library / Equaliser / Playlist: switch to manual design.
I may write manuals for that. See the Skin-Forum.
All manuals may become available as a (printable) download on the BS.Player website.
