The Unauthorized Matrix Skin - v1.1 Desktop Alpha added

Staff review


Might be unauthorized, but is approved. :) Thank you for your submission.


Not too bad... - Pretty good skin overall. I like the Matrix so that helps. :) Not sure if it's related to the current version of Winamp (5.23) but the timers are either both going up or both going down... so kind of redundant. Mark H. - June 16, 2006 by Mark Headrick

Ok, but I can't see me ever using it - I think this skin is decent (keeps the movie style pretty well) but it sets me more in the mind of a movie poster rather than the setting of the movie itself. I would rather have one of the characters be no character, as the layout would be cool if it were able to give the feel that you were the "operator" at the console. - March 20, 2006 by Michael Blank

The skin of the real - This skin is very cool indeed,who cares if it doesnt have winshade yet, i like the character layouts , very nicely done,overall good customizable skin, i highly reccomend it - March 3, 2004 by Joey Hass

Wicked Skin - DEF GET IT lOOKS SO COOL WEN U SET IT UP ON A SEPERATE MONITOR - January 28, 2004 by Matthew Kellett

hmmm .... ok - its kinda ok... actually the clarity of the figures and the coloration is not good enough... this is giving the skin a slightly cheap look... - December 9, 2003 by divya iyer

The Best skin :D - Easy the best skin on :D nIce Job :) - April 25, 2003 by Mattias ?hman

? - K, you want suggestions, I'll give'm to you. The skin just looks too beaten up. It would look cooler if the two side panels folded/slid in. It also looks a bit too dark. - April 8, 2003 by C H

Elite skin=elite maker - Love it! Every Matrix fan will appreciate being able to see Keanu Reeves playing their favorite mp3 files. - February 18, 2003 by Ileia Brashear

Great work!! - Well this skin has got ALMOST everything, and since I like The Matrix, I like the look of this skin, you could fix the code for the timers on the left so it saves the settings when closing winamp. I love the design, it's just almost perfect!! - February 17, 2003 by Eliad Levy

eh - the graphics are cool, the swtching of the charactors is neat, but it needs work to live up to the name of the matrix. - February 14, 2003 by Silver Dragon

cool skin - A playlist button in the winshade mode is my suggestion:D - January 30, 2003 by Cat C

Updates to come - A winshade mode and desktop alpha will be added in v1.1. The Playlist, Media Library, and Video windows will be revamped as well. Any other suggested changes? - January 29, 2003 by VooDoo`
