--Vortex-- - Skin Up!

Staff review

It's big and pretty. If brushed metal is your thing this is for you, lots of options, lots of themes, lots of different modes.


What Happened - Loaded it and Winamp crashed.Restarted Winamp (luckily) and it loaded the previous skin. So how do I fix it? - March 26, 2009 by Roger Blakley

Watchout - do not download from site virus infection on downloads use caution at your own risk! Get Avast catches it b4 it downloads - March 26, 2008 by Chad Turnner

How could you? - So I was happy with this. So happy, in fact, that I tried the 'Modern Skin Pluspack' which it suggested I download. Turns out there's a trojan in that file - warning people now. - September 23, 2007 by Chris Down


kewl - very neat, it game some errors though - June 28, 2007 by Ghislain Sobarzo

You guys just make my head explode - The Consortium deliver yet another high-octane thrill-ride of a skin.I haven't even gotten around to playing any actual music on it yet, there's just that much to play with. I'm digging fullscreen mode more than I would like to admit, and the customization options are mindblowing.Feels like: Straddling a torpedoTastes like: TANG, straight out of the packGoes like: the blazesTry if you like: Explosions, the Skin Consortium. - May 22, 2007 by THUD~* Munkki

vortex .. - kicks ass - January 20, 2007 by lorrie pettit

Hawt! - This skin is amazing!... so many components and options.. I love the variety of features and themes. It's compact design with large screen and everything else it offers.. brings me back over 50 other skin designs I've downloaded.. Thumbs up!! - August 11, 2006 by denise bergner

Very Nice - I love every single thing about this skin, except one little thing that NEEDS to be fixed. When you press the ^ twice and the Main Window and Playlist are connected, I HATE the fact that you cannot control how big or how small you want this. I cant read all my songs, and that makes me angry and frustrated. I hope you will fix that problem with the next one that comes out. Other than that, I love it. - July 25, 2006 by Matthew Brzyski

Great looking skin but......... - it has crashed every time I've tried to use it so far. I've only had this problem with a few modern skins and not nearly to this extent. It takes up a lot more memory than any other modern skin I've used so far. I hope I can resolve this problem because now, Anunaki110 would definitely have some competition. - July 7, 2006 by Jack Sanders

not configured to that yet - sorry about that - June 30, 2006 by QuadHeliX Barber

Ok.. - So this looked really cool.....but when I tried to figure out how to move it off my primary display and put it on my secondary display, it would just snap back to the primary display. I tried to figure this out and was unable to. 2 stars.... - June 30, 2006 by Meziah Jolley

beautiful. very much so.. - i love it. i really do. easy on the eyes, so many color themes to choose from, and it is so graphically beautiful. very nice. it is on my top two list. it has so many adavances that you can mess with, and it so so easy to do... props. - June 26, 2006 by Jeanette Rogers

Beautiful and Clear - I'm picky with my Winamp skins, and this one made it through to regular use. Beautiful, easy to use, with extra features that you don't need to read a manual for. The colours are lovely, too. I'd rather have four easy on the eyes themes than fifty-five all strangely named and clashing. Well done. - June 23, 2006 by Xanthine X

Amazing - This is a great skin, its just a shame it got pushed down the pecking order so its downloads are low :( - June 23, 2006 by Leigh Whitehead

Great - Hey, I HAD to get this skin :) ;p It's a pity I can't use modern skins; too much CPU usage! - June 22, 2006 by Gustavo Valin

Pretty damn good - This skin is very well done, (my opinion). Looks great, works good, and goes along well with my music. A perfect 5 from me. - June 22, 2006 by Aero Tech846
