Overdrive 2

Featured Skin, October 31, 2002.

Updated for compliance with Winamp 5

It took some German Engineering and a lot of work to turbo-charge this skin. The German Engineering is in the form of aid from Sven Kistner, author of MMD3 and Winamp Modern. The lot of work is the following set of new features:

- more detailed leather and steel wheel

- completely redone buttons, now integrated with the wheel

- completely redone equalizer

- small items and bug fixes, ex: skinned tooltips

- improved color presets (try the Night Driving preset)

visual excellence. - Best Winshade mode I have ever seen. period. And a prety cool desing idea, too. - October 24, 2005 by travis rempel

very nice - love night driving... heeh, great colors, smooth interface, 5 stars - October 9, 2005 by Andre Netz

Here's how - To set Night Driving (or any other preset), either click the "sound wave" button (second from left up a the top) or right click anywhere that isn't a button. That brings up a menu. Choose Options -> Color Themes -> Night Driving (or whichever). Happy driving! - September 16, 2005 by Ian Novack

COOL! - This is definitely my choice... But how do you do the night driving preset? Mind telling me how you do that? - September 12, 2005 by Ronald Lai

otimo - bom - July 10, 2005 by leonardo lisboa

decent idea but... - well its cool enough but if you scale it up even a tad I noticed a bad cropping job around the outside edge, its all jaggedy. Should have cropped at a higher res. Other then that cool stuff. - May 26, 2005 by Myles Twine

Still the one and only - Still my favorite skin ever. I like it so much that i didn't downloaded winamp 5 until now. Hope to see more skins like this with all the buttons we need on a very easy interface. And by the way, Night Driving preset is my favorite one. Thanks a lot Mr. Novack. - March 29, 2005 by Guillermo Mendoza

Good Skin - This has to be one of the best car themed skins I have seen. I just perfer the more traditional style skin. To Jeremy Moore who said "bad thing takes up half the screen and is way to large" I say what s**t are you on cause I want some. - January 26, 2005 by Michael Braedley

F***en cool!!! - To my mind, that's really cool skin, which is very useful for such a user, as me. Moreover, it's rockin''cause of easy use. Thats why I gave it 5 stars! - December 24, 2004 by Alexander Demidow

doido - massa - December 7, 2004 by Raphael Vieira

Help! - I'd really liked that skin so inusual and funny. But i don't know how to put the Night Driv color preset, who know how, plz write to me! Thxx a lot! Ciao! - December 5, 2004 by Erry Sylver

Not what i Expected - Good thing easy to use bad thing takes up half the screen and is way to large - November 6, 2004 by Jeremy Moore

A Must-Drive Skin! - For anyone who loves a good drive, there'll always be something pleasing about this. It's irresistable cruising candy - September 5, 2004 by LionHeart Khanna

excelent, Ian - When I use it for the first time I fell in love. Easy to use, and with real special effects like if one is in a top model car. Congratulations - June 2, 2004 by Gonzalo Segura

Vrooom! - This is an excellent and really creative skin with decent color schemes. Here are my only suggestions: Make the Gas Gauge the song progress meter, make the Speedometer the volume control, make the Equalizer bars retractible, and find some way to put a visualization in Windowshade mode. The VU meter is great, however I wish it were a bit smoother, as it is not dependant on the timer resolution. Perhaps that's just my computer though. - May 31, 2004 by Brady Kahn

Overdrive 2 - Simply Awesome! - May 27, 2004 by George Marshall

COOOOOL - COOOOOOOOOOOL - March 20, 2004 by Mart Jensen

Overdrive2 - GOod skin - November 24, 2003 by Marc Honsberger

Functional at least - It's not a bad least the buttons are clear and concise enough. But even in windowshade mode it's big. - September 19, 2003 by Dante _

Over drive 2 skin ROCKS - this skin rocks. specially with the night driving. - August 11, 2003 by Bryan Bedoya

My one and only skin - This is soo nice and it has all of the features i need, without any of those anims or thinks like that. Even the better can be improved, this is the sample. Way to go Mr. Novack. - August 5, 2003 by Guillermo Mendoza

Overdrive 2" - its an art piece - August 2, 2003 by pradeep ban

Nothing to amazing - Its alright but the playlist is really ugly - July 27, 2003 by Mike Durrant

EXCELLENT OVER DRIVE SKIN - waht can i say, i fell in love the minute i saw this skin. it's best skin i've ever downloaded- instantly became my favorite - June 20, 2003 by Damion Richards

WOW best ever - WOW this is the best skin I have ever had my hands on..... I love the color Scheme the creative way to integrate the song time and the VU meter.... Its just great keep up the good work. - June 18, 2003 by Ryan FIschels

Ooo nice! - Brrrrrrrrrrroooooooom! kool! - June 13, 2003 by Hanabi

Overdrive 2 - My absolute favorite, although the raven is conceptually off the charts. My only gripes have already been pointed out...i.e. the playlist doesn't fit well (a third size choice would be great for the wheel, too) and the purple text on black can be a little hard to read when night driving. I like the one reviewer's idea of having the transmission letters be the function keys...once again, my very favorite skin ever, hats off to the author (and gloves on) - June 11, 2003 by Stuart Baldwin

????????????? - is this for winamp 3???????????????? - June 11, 2003 by Hakan Neset

Almost there.... - A really nice skin. Looks cool, but it needs a little something to kick it up to elite status. For one, the playlist editor just doesn't work. There is no where you can place it that it looks OK. Second the font used for the track title just doesn't work. The font looks like its been pasted on and the color (stark white) glares too much. Also, the little gas pump symbol next to the volume unbalances the window. E---F could only be fuel so the symbol is redundant, and 'vol' underneath tells you all you really need to know about the meter. Last, it would be REALLY COOL (IMHO) if the gear indicator functioned as play, stop, pause, etc. buttons. 'D' for play, 'N' for pause... well you get the picture... Anyway an excellent skin overall. Keep up the good work. - June 5, 2003 by Patrick McKane

nice - lol that tach kicks ass, I would be going through engines like dental floss. Well, I mean, I don't really floss much, but like, you know what I mean. - June 2, 2003 by Joel Leavelle

Great layout - Very impressive. Great layout. Nicely executed. - May 18, 2003 by Tom Frankowski

AWESOME!!!! - When I saw this skin, I had to get it! The MPH and RPM gauges actually work! COOL! - May 18, 2003 by Ben Dobson

Nice!! - I like this one, works good, different color schemes load fast, looks good!! - May 15, 2003 by Kathy Staggs

overdrive2 - its cool - May 3, 2003 by susanta singha

Top of its Class - Well its no Ferrari, but a very clean skin. A little rough on the edges and whatnot but overall very nice. Would have liked for the Playlist and EQ to look a little more like something original. Gearshift and petal maybe, I dunno. Anyhow keep up the good work. - April 27, 2003 by Blake Muxo

esta suave - me gusto esta bien echo este trabajo - April 5, 2003 by octavio mora

Very Good Concept - Very good concept. The VU meter does lag a little, but for the most part it is a very, very unique skin that is functional and fun to Thanks for your contribution...Keep up the good work. - March 19, 2003 by Robert E. Lee

Drivers Choice - I love this skin, would be cool if you could have the F1 gear change paddles at the side, definitely recommended - March 1, 2003 by Andrew Whitelocks

Oh yeah! - "Remain civilized" the form says. TOUGH! This skin is THE reason I've finally downloaded Winamp 3!!! Who needs another skin?? - January 23, 2003 by Scott Novack

Love it. - I love speed so I automatically liked this one. It looks like the inside of a racecar so I give it 5 stars. - November 15, 2002 by Felicia Glaze

THIS IS THE ONE - Hey man, this is absolutley the coolest skin, way better than the first one, I absolutely love it. Can you make one that looks like the steering wheel on my car, a '99 Trans-Am :) :) :) Keep up the good work dude. - November 13, 2002 by Rick Mason

This is cood - Now here is a skin, not like that craptastic ticket skin.... - November 13, 2002 by john bieker

So hot, my firewall's melting! - Mr. Novack shifted into high gear and burnt some SERIOUS rubber! This skin rules the road, no doubt about that. This sporty, smooth leather, fuel-efficient skin is even better than the first one. A must-have! - November 9, 2002 by Spike Spiegel
