Eye candy AND useability!

Resurected from the dead Resurgence is the concept of JRS2 completly remade and revamped from the ground up (only coded this time!), main code is thanks to Hammerhead who helped me give the skin much love and attention to ensure the skin didn't just look cool, but had the guts behind it to run well. Enjoy.

Resurgence - Eye candy AND useability!

Staff review

Simply awesome.

Resurgence looks great and is overflowing with unique features. What are you waiting for? Download it already!


Amazing - Ridiculously good looking skin, one of my instant favorites. I couldn't resist using this. The only problems were that the other modes were rather crammed and seemed rushed, but the normal mode is dazzling. Some of the text is hard to read as well. Also, having open a playlist editor or media library to select songs is quite bulky and has a couple unnecessary features. Regardless, you should download this just to see it in action. - October 11, 2009 by boss

The most ... - The most Beautiful skin as i have ever saw. - January 2, 2007 by Artyom Astakhov

Neato... - Lot's of little options and colour for those who like to make the player there own. With an interactive walkthrough and a hip vis make this skin a must have in anyones skin list. - December 17, 2006 by Erik Pedersen

High quality - This skin has many fun features and an especially well-developed help window. A wonderful skin, it sets the bar high in graphics and functionality. Admirable work. - September 17, 2006 by Pascal Getreuer

Simply overflowing - Resurgence looks great and is overflowing the memory. What are you waiting for? Download it and slow down your computer! - June 30, 2006 by Matija Lovric

Dayum - This skin is very well done. It may look intimadating to some folks who like the very basic type of skin. However the tool tips and the tutorial with button highlights on the actual player are very helpful. Clean skin nice functionality. More than enough color schemes to keep most folks happy. Winshade mode was a nice change from the "stick", cool design yet small enough to not take up much space at all. Stick mode was clean, easy to use, the ability to stretch it to your prefered size was cool. Allows you to have a small stick mode or a full screen stick if you prefer. Rather impressed with the look, ease of use, and overall functionality of this skin. The tutorial is worth a star in itself. perfect score in my opinion. - June 8, 2006 by Wolf Bringer

Stunning! - This skin is simply AMAZING. What else is there to say? I love it. - May 30, 2006 by Aaron Boswell

Frikkin Awesome - What more can I say, this skin ROCKS!!!!! Great to look at, and it has all the guts to back itself up, so it isnt, "just another pretty face" :-) - April 2, 2006 by Brad Hinman

2 KEWL!!! - A pure work of art!!! The best ever in my opinion!! - December 1, 2004 by Bill Schrader

Nice - this is nice, but one thing is it took me a little time to find the EQ, but once i found it this skin was money...all the different colors you can have and it will search for updates on it for thats money - November 7, 2004 by Jeremy Moore

Bug? What bug? - For the guy with the button problem in the playlist. You need to click on the left side of button for it to work. For some reason the whole button doesn't work. Anywho, there you go. - October 28, 2004 by Juan Zavala

very cool - i love this skin.. there's just this problem that i wish would be corrected--the "manage playlist" button on the lower right of the Playlist Editor doesn't seem to work. do other people have this bug too? - October 22, 2004 by Gem Urdaneta

speach less - im speachless all i can say is DOWNLOAD THIS NOW CAUSE IS ROCKS - September 29, 2004 by Aaron Schadler

I LOVE this skin! - Download it now, for it is awesome. - September 27, 2004 by jook c

Perfect - Only PERFECT - September 15, 2004 by Cetin Caliskan

kicks a whole herd of llama's - yeah, this review is pretty useless. You should have already downloaded it instead of wasting time reading my review. But n-e-wayz, this skin is packed with some funky stuff. i love it! - September 3, 2004 by J Lopez

Best of the Best! - Resurgence- The best skin I have seen in the cool devices segment. This one, really gives you a sophisticated feel on your desktop. But, however my computer gets hanged, when I have both browser window, and winamp opened, only with this skin. A little bulky, however. Overall, a great skin! - August 25, 2004 by Pushkaraj Mahajan

The Future is Beautiful! - Excellent Skin. The best I've seen and experienced so far. Thumbs up to its creators. =] - August 18, 2004 by Nar Sterking

Awesome indeed !!!! - Great to see a skin with soo much functionality and in a futuristic manner as well. 5 Stars. - July 14, 2004 by Ryan Crawford

Masterful ! - This skin represents a true step into the cutting edge of skin design. Within it's conception it is ....PERFECT. All the components work beatifully and the color combination sets are amazing, needless to mention the design and form. The best skin since Nucleo_NV_102. Thank you sir, You've outdone yourself god dammit! - July 13, 2004 by man dragora

Wonderful - I think this is about as good as it gets. I won't start on all the things I love, so I'll take the ones I don't love. The buttons are a bit small, especially on high resolution screens, but it is scaleable, so it shouldn't be a problem as such. The Change mode button and the Close button shouldn't switch places from normal to shade mode, too easy to close it when you want stick mode. Two programmable buttons are great, but four would have been awesome! But it is still the best one I've seen. - July 11, 2004 by John Smith

Awesome... - This is one of the best skins that Ive seen. Its an awesome layout, not to much detail thats its to hard to look at, and the color themese RULE! - July 10, 2004 by Matt B

GREAT SKIN - The only thing i hate is the side, they seem a bit rough, but the rest is great! And the colour themes are amazing too! - July 10, 2004 by b silver87

Hasn't Left - I installed this over a week ago, shortly after it came out. It hasn't left my desktop sense (and that's saying a lot, considering I don't usually use any skins...I just collect 'em). The color schemes are wonderful; I've found several that I can't really decide between. I keep it on the default; oftentimes, the default is there for a reason. However, I personally like it with the bars off. Cleaner look that way. BUT, you have that option! Oh, and the walkthrough is amazing; It really integrates with the player, highlighting the buttons that it's talking about. The skin doesn't open any odd windows on startup (not even the walkthrough, which gets annoying after the second time you start your player if it shows up everytime), and the ability to integrate the controls on the playlist is perfect for docking the playlist on the left or right with autohide. In fact, I can only think of one real complaint about this skin: The volume dial, when right clicking, is supposed to mute the volume; but, it only goes down to 1%. But, since I don't use mute much (I'd much rather pause), it's far from a make-or-break. And FYI: This is my first review I've posted; I'm not usually big on giving feedback, but this one's worth it! Enough ranting; You see why I never right reviews? lol - July 7, 2004 by Neard Burkhalter

This rules - It looks so Cool, SO much better the then new Winamp 5 shin. ANY winamp user MUST install it. it would be so if they accually made a player like this! - July 6, 2004 by graham cookman

The true meaning of skinning - This is the first skin to drive me crazy because this skin is fabulous. I love the way everything is accesible from the playlist. Fully functional and good looking. The BEST of both worlds. Even though I believe there is still a better skin than the BEST, I give it 5 stars anyway. ...Go Resurgence Go... - July 5, 2004 by Rhythm Obsession

best - i saw this skin when i went on to looked at who made it and just had to download it. good job mc^^^^. keep up the good work. - July 5, 2004 by psycho _maniac

Suprising - Nice updater, nice colors, and nice 3 skin modes. I can see clearly through the whole thing. - July 4, 2004 by T W

WoW - This is an AWSOME skin. This is a MUST for all Winamp enthusiasts. - July 4, 2004 by Ben P

X X X X X - Muuuito loko!!!!! - July 3, 2004 by Deivison Morim

This is what modern skinning is all about! - WOW! I just doesn't get any better than this. This skin is THE total package and is thoroughly amazing in every mode! Even the Playlist Editor is unique from any other skin. Even if the the floating equalizer, the color schemes, the complete ease of use, the animations, and the sheer beauty of this skin weren't enough, imagine all that PLUS very low CPU usage! Move over MMD3....this has you beat by far! Excellent job guys! - July 2, 2004 by AE 4713

AMAZING! - I found this one by searching the GUIOlympics and this is definatly worth the download. Great look and very easy to use. Each colour theme works with almost every theme that I have for my computer. I can honestly say that this is the best skin ever; since I've been using it non-stop ever since it was released! WORTH THE DOWNLOAD! - June 30, 2004 by PD17 - M47R!X

WOW! - I love the design of this skin. This is one of the best free form skins I've ever seen for Winamp. This should be Winamp's new default skin. - June 29, 2004 by Lee Groomes

Just Perfect - This damn skin is perfect, it doest need anything more, its complete, its beautiful, its everything you look for a skin. This is the last skin you're gonna download. - June 28, 2004 by Miguel Angel Alcala

How Nice - Great job. A lot of work was put into this. In your next update (v2 or something) please fix the play-time digit display and toggle the time display with clock display pleeeeeaaaase. I love to see what time it is on any skin. - June 28, 2004 by martin m

Holy Sh*t - i knew this one was gonna be a good one from the moment i saw the preview pic. it is extemely pleasing to the eye, and the color themes go on forever. I liked the walkthrough at the beginning too, with this skins vast features, it was needed. (Not in a bad way though) The 2 different windowshade modes are awesome too. I can only find one flaw. The customizable buttons (cool!) are a little small (awww...) but otherwise, 5 stars skin, all the way. - June 27, 2004 by Jordan M

Outrageous ! ! ! - I love everything on this skin, but i think it should have big icons to see it more clear... - June 26, 2004 by Tom Gregory

Awsome - This is the best skin i have used so far! Untill a better one comes forth, this shall be my skin of choice. Great work, especially on the skin tips. Its just great all around, once you've found everything! - June 26, 2004 by Sean Camus

Beutiful - Very very pretty, and functional. Seem to have some weird issues with the playlist items not showing or not selecting on both machines i've installed it on though. - June 26, 2004 by Greg van_Berkel

gr8 layout work.. check it out to change your life... - All regards to the creator of the skin.. its simply an other class.... ---- to the creator ..MC^^^ please contact me @ .. [email protected] . c o m ... - June 25, 2004 by Yasir Ali

Matthew St. John - Matthew St. John, actually i made the skin so that you can play songs over 9:59, try it, the text auto-shrinks down to fit the extra numbers... - June 22, 2004 by Michael McBriar

Nearly flawless - I love everything about this skin EXCEPT... it doesn't show the second digit of the minutes of play. This is rather annoying since Winamp is my movie player and most of the files I play in winamp are longer than 9:59, which screws up the display. It's not a biggie, but it bugs me enough that I gotta knock it down one point. - June 22, 2004 by Matthew St. John

Nice - I like this skin. Tonz of color themes, GR8 animation on the EQ (docking and undocking). I think my only complaint is that many of the buttons are too damn hard to hit when your monitor is set at a higher resolution. 4 stars for the thought put into this one and the execution. An easier to use UI would have easliy knocked this up to 5 stars. - June 22, 2004 by Ground Hawg

Stylish and Functional - Solid skin with great extras. Truly a nice bit of work. The tutorial is a great addition. This is a must have skin and easily will become most peoples default. Wow, wow, wow. - June 22, 2004 by Anthony Pellegrini

Yum - Resurgence, one of the sleekest skins available. Many features on this skin make it a must Download. The futuristic style alone and the Bitmapped Fonts make this skin stand out. 3d depth and original style in the LCD screen are just so.... can you say Fung SHUI (sp). I give it a 10 err a 5! - June 21, 2004 by QuadHeliX Barber

The best of them all! - This has been my default skin since I discovered it at the GUIOlympics a few weeks ago. It is simply AWESOME! Its design is flawles, its packed with features, and very easy to use. What else can I tell you? * What about the equalizer that floats back across your desktop to the main body? * The strong color themes with golden or silver fonts? * The notifier that can popup on the left or right side of your screen? * The playlist that can be used as the main player in both normal and stickmode? Once you start discovering this skin's many features it will be a long time before you want any other skin. Why are you still reading this??? - June 21, 2004 by Hawk .

Pretty cool... not my taste, but still good. - Eh, I dont really like the way this looks... The sleek roundness doesnt look good on my sqare screen. Also, I cant tell which buttons are which (close, minimize, mode)... This would have gotten a 4.5, but a four wouldnt be fair. This is better than a four. So I guess you get a five ;). I'm not going to keep it, but I think it is pretty sleek. - June 20, 2004 by Scott Kuehnert

i'm the first! :) - *yay* what an honour :) this skin is just great and it'S cool to have it here finally after the guio! the only thing that i do NOT like about this skin, is the vis, but every taste is different! :) great work! - June 20, 2004 by i rontz
