Staff review


Skinning is evolving, this is really neat, lots of modes, lots of themes, something for everyone, good work, LOts of neat features to try out.


GREAT!!!! - Thanks for this cool Skin. It?s the best i?ve ever seen. I?m looking for something like this for soooo long Thanks!!!! - January 6, 2006 by keine Ahnung

Excellent, so far one of the "ultimate skin" club - as said inother reviews, this skin i very well designed, loved the 3 shapes of the main window's player. Many colors and combinations. Really modern and temporary designed but stays simples and intituive. Just one thing could be better: the weak clearness of the informations in the main window. But even with that problem to read sometimes the displays, seach a work of art in termes of conception and realization deserves 5 *. Thank you so much for this nice work you're offering to the comunity! Krystok from Brasil - April 27, 2005 by cris swia

I registered just to review this, it's that good! - No contest, this is the best I've seen in a very long time! I'm well impressed with this has about a million different ways you can view it and use it. Excellent design and functionality...simple enough to understand, arty enough to be stylish and fit into any space i have on my desktop. I downloaded a few skins today but it was a waste of time. I will most definitely be using this one. Thanks very much and keep up the good work! P.S. I use mine in hot pink ;) - January 20, 2005 by Spang *

If This Is Evolving Lets Go Back In Time - cant read display barely and awesome design idea but was all messed up by simply making all items in lcd unreadable in all color modes possible and so thus the point is what? looks good... but cant see whats good? the gare affect on lcd is a nice idea but often makes the screen not easy to read so lets all revolved away from doing it and make sharp design ideas with clear key elements close at hand and all readable "we should not have to scroll over that lil "dot" to see whats it do, we have the ability to make drawers etc and can make one say for "things" rather then make them a micro dot and have 12 small lil dots all over use a drawer and have in it and have bigger buttons "so thus hiden if not wanted/needed" and yet viewable when they are "a key element for any good skin" - December 21, 2004 by Damien SatansSon

Beautiful - Great job, for sure. 5 Stars. - December 13, 2004 by Ben Edwards

Best skin for Winamp - This is a simple intergrated skin that is personalised to suite each individual's wants. There are multi- function, many modes and colour themes. Its easy on the memory usage of your computer as well. This is a great skin. - September 16, 2004 by Sytheris Dk_Ft_Mg

modifying evolver for readability - This is my current skin. I particularly like the winshade mode. However, as others have said, it is difficult reading. So... I went in and modified it. '.wal' files are just zip files, so you can unzip it to a directory, make your changes, rezip the directory, rename it to evolver.wal and there you are. Be sure you make a backup copy in case you hose things. The files I changed were '.png' files that involved alpha channels, so you'll need an alpha aware editor (like GIMP). The changed files were: evolver\shade-2\numfontshade2.png evolver\shade-2\shade2font.png evolver\shade-2\stretchshadow.png You may wish to make similar changes, if necessary, to the other player modes. I changed the colors of the fonts to #999999, you may wish to experiment around to find one you like. The change to stretchshadow.png was to remove the 'speckling' over the display area.

innovative - i like all the different modes, and the way the main buttons are on every window. the popout thingys are neat also. the color themes are good, but i wish there was one that's a more brilliant green. - October 21, 2003 by die scum

Nice design, bad winshade - Ok. I prefer using a winshade. Now, although the one on this has the potential to be a great design, I found the buttons too small and the writing impossible to read against any of the colours. Nice try, but just off - October 19, 2003 by Joe Schmoe

=) - pretty nice, although the song times are hard to read cuz of the "glare" you put on the skin. other than that, i think it's pretty damn cool. - October 6, 2003 by kko n

This is what great skinning is all about!! - Excellent!! What a great skin! Great layout. Easy to get the hang of. Aesthetically pleasing. There are plenty of color themes to match anybody's preference. The only thing I would mention as far as possible improvements go is that the display could stand out a little better. But that is a trivial matter. This is definitely my personal favourite.-----------P.S. i would also like to mention my congratulations to any of you out there who can't spell dissapointed and who also can't find the options on this skin. it is truly a marvel that you were able to figure out how to post a review. - September 23, 2003 by James Svoboda

Super Slick - This one just rules. Lots of color schemes and animations. The buttons on the compact modes take a bit to get used to (trying to figure out which is what). The only contrast increase I could possibly see that might need changing are the buttons for opening the function panels, but even if you left it alone, it'll still rock! This one is one of my permanent skins. - September 20, 2003 by Dante _

Disapionted - Man if this is your first skin its pretty good, but the first time I couldn't figure out where the options were. Its also a little too hard to see. Just keep on improving it. - September 15, 2003 by Fredrick Galoso

Sweetness!!! - this is an awesome skin!!!! i can make it 'slim' and keep it up all the time and still watch my playlist. way to go!!!!! I am lovin this skin!!! - June 17, 2003 by Dj Black

Best in Slim, and... - I agree with most of the reviews, it does need a contrast increase on the font's, so for a 2.0, a font contrast increase would make this skin perfect, ranks right up there with PAD. In Slim mode it really shines because I can plant it right over my taskbar, and cover up the text included in Backgrounds such as stuff from, but besides that, with my Milkdrop Custom Backgrounds, it is really non-invasive of all my other applications sitting right over my taskbar, and it takes no additional system resources. So I leave a Star empty for 2.0 and a hopeful/wise addition of a Font Contrast Increase, maybe a Few Additional Candy Color Themes too, I think a pure black hull, with a brighter candy interior would really be cool! - May 27, 2003 by Kevin McKissick

A revised opinion. - I admit the colour themes, though not upto MMD3 standard, are actually good compared to most other skins. But my only complaint is that they don't go well with the whole of the skin, i.e. probably lacking constrast. Otherwise, the design is fantastic, skin's functionality & the different modes rock! - May 25, 2003 by Prashanth Srinivasan

Great! - This is the second skin i've downloaded, but it's very nice. Me and my freinds have had very crappy ones before. Love all the colors! Quik download too! awsome. - May 7, 2003 by Summer Rain Luna

The ultimate skin - This is by far the best skin ever, and I really mean it. I've tried loads in my hunt for the perfectly formed skin, and this is it. It has everything; functionality above all but also a beautiful design (well, four actually) tons of well thought out colour themes (I'm on silver candy at the moment) and lots of lovely buttons and stuff. Its great. - April 21, 2003 by Michael Hodgins

Nice Action - Three really good skins in one. Great colour schemes and funky moving bits, nice action. Thanks for my new skin : ) - April 21, 2003 by Dave Jordan

Lacks Contrast - Great skin, but the buttons are lacking a bit of contrast with the rest of the skin in the capsule mode, but its a good size, good shapes, well skinned skin! Definately should be in the top 10 skins at the moment :) - April 8, 2003 by Jeremy Freemantle

complete - well it complete u got everything ,and i love the colours but should have used more 3d - March 28, 2003 by zack z

Neat.. - Pros: Looks awesome, nice color themes. Really good job with the whole overall look of the skin. Cons: No docking parts..I like my Winamp players EQ, Playlist and Player to stay in one piece when moved. Also, the letters and buttons are hard to read. Other than that...great job! - March 25, 2003 by Jedi Empress

Excellent skin - This skin is easily one of the top 5 WinAmp3 skins that I have yet seen! With its ease of use and awesome color schemes, this skin has made into my regular skin rotation! - March 23, 2003 by Jeff Pearson

Very "Glassy" and nice but... - The buttons and fonts are too dark!! Would have scored a (5 stars) from me for making a nice skin with a glass effect BUT the fonts and graphics are too dark to read...especially on normal, non flat-panel computer screens - February 24, 2003 by nchua Chua

Ummmm... - I like the color themes and the different modes, but it's a little hard to read. Just something to think about. ~ Just a Chic ~ - February 6, 2003 by Sara Campos

pretty good - not bad. like the color themes. - January 20, 2003 by greg vaillancourt

Beautiful ! - Beautiful, complete and complex ! Many fatures, many color themes. It is just a little hard to read the title of the song, because of the glass effect. But it is really cool ! - January 8, 2003 by Manu Devil

I'm Jeremy, and I'm a switcher - One word...WOW. This skin made me switch to WinAmp3. Love the color schemes and slick look. This skin makes all the other winamp3 skins I've seen look like pure nastiness. - January 8, 2003 by Jeremy Cantrell

nice except drawers - great skin, nice integration and functionality. only thing i don't like is that the drawers are opened by a separate button instead of by clicking on them directly. thanks for making the opacity, scale, and color themes easy to find. - January 6, 2003 by Bayen Miller

Excellent - Excellent Skin. The Shade mode is very pointless in my mind, and there needs to be more contrast on the display. Other than that, this is a great skin, very "useable". - January 5, 2003 by Reid Towsley

Nice Job - I like this skin lots! Very original, lots of flexibilty and the color themes are da bomb... - January 1, 2003 by c settles

One of a kind... - What can you say? - January 1, 2003 by C H

cool - this one looks even better on your desktop than it does here. You've got to d/l it to appreciate the shading, the reflectivity in the display windows and other such details. oh yeah, and the color scheme selection is great too. - December 30, 2002 by Paul Elmore

Good Job - great!! You worked hard and used all your effort - December 29, 2002 by Killer Skiner

Smokin' - Nice skin. Very. Have one problem with it tho. The video window does not open. At first it did. I played some videos then closed the window. Now the window refuses to open. It opens with every other skin that I have except evolver. Do you know what I may have done wrong? - December 27, 2002 by Soldier Fortune

yea. - hey lawrence, it's lionel..hrm..mmk..hey boostr, it's kriptoner (is better huhu), simply great skin ;] - December 27, 2002 by lionel hirard

Good Evolver - muy buen eskin tiene colores y formas muy buenos solo que hay un peque?od detalle en el EQ (equalizador) y es que los botones de ON/OFF y AUTO, estan mal indicados, estan al reves ya que cuando es se?alado el boton de AUTO dice que es el de EQUALIZER ON /OFF y lo mismo sucede con el boton de ON/OFF ya que al colocar el puntero del mouse indica que es el de AUTO con lo consecuente de que al poner el equalizer en ON hay que darle al boton de AUTO. atte. Karac - December 27, 2002 by Crater L

Godlike - Damn, this skin rocks ass. Awesome job mate! - December 26, 2002 by Ian Swift

Very very nice - This is one of the first really good skins we've seen in a long while. Great job! Very smooth, very clean, extremely intuitive to use - evolver is a keeper. - December 26, 2002 by david adamczyk

Amazing - This skin is fantastic, has lots of animations and color themes (your only problem is decide which do u prefer), however I've found 2 bugs: in the equalizer (capsule) the animation that slides down 2 show the crossfader and balance isn't working correctly; in the other equalizer the labels AUTO and ON are switched. Correct this fast for this skin kicks ass - December 26, 2002 by Daniel Vitorino

Awesome - Enough said. - December 24, 2002 by Stef xxxxx
