 Post subject: Barneon Touch UPDATED - Check It Out

Updated: There was a spacing issue on certain resolutions where the album frames would run together. I think I got it fixed now. Also I added in the original artwork by Peter and Jan for people who like it that way, and called it Barneon Original. Select that if you want the CD, Vinyl, Collection look.

I made some big changes to my skin:
1. I changed the name from Barneon Touch to Barneon Blue Touch so that I can offer up different colors later on down the road.
2. I changed the default minimum size to 1024 x 736
3. Various graphic changes
4. I made my own simple frame for around the albums, in the albumgrid.
5. The biggest change I made was to the booklet. I combined the album info and the tracks page together. Also I got rid of the rating stars on the track page. I wanted people to be able to select there favorite song and not be intimidated by someone else giving it a low rating. Now all the track ratings are only on the rating page of the booklet. Enjoy!

Here is the download link:

I don't know how to post images directly into the forum, so here's links to the pictures.

Here's the main albumgrid:

Here's a shot of the tracks/album info booklet page:

Also I'm going to put up a version with the original CD, Vinyl, & Collection for people who like it that way.

Wow, you did a fantastic job here. Especially the booklet. I am always impressed when people can make a new skin without having any documentation.

Ma be you already wrote, sorry to ask. Is this one V5.3 ready and does it include the variable size button bar at top?

I have put this topic as sticky.

Can you email the screenshots in full size to me support@albumplayer.com . Then I will upload so it is possible to directly show in topic

When I switch to party mode in the new version of this skin it seems to revert back to the previous version of the skin. Will the party mode also be updated with the new colors and button options?

The new skin looks great and I really like the new booklet. Keep up the great work!

I think you have to update your party mode settings in the preferences to load the proper skin

Eventually I'm going to do a party mode version of the skin. Also a jumbo version for people using large screen resolutions.

What size album cover do you prefer when you select a skin at that resolution. The Large Cover or the Very Large Cover.

I love the new Barneon Blue Touch Skin. The new booklet is amazing and I am glad someone finally made something more touch friendly. Thanks!!! The artist pictures are still blocking the artists titles. Probably needs a simple adjustment. I know you said before that you didn't know you could show the pictures. Go to Preferences>General>Check "show large artist buttons containing pictures" and you will see that they are off a little. Fix this and it will be amazing. My other suggestion would be to make the Genres bigger and more exciting like the following link if possible:
https://g0.gstatic.com/android/market/c ... ss-480-1-8
In other words, each genre is like an album, with a genre picture. That would definitely make it more touch friendly and eye-catching. The last thing is that the small album cover on the "now playing" section in the bottom left does not show up on mine. It shows up on your screen shot above though. Any ideas? I am running version 5.3 beta 15.
Thanks so much for your hard work and I look forward to future improvements including the color options.

It is a bit confusing to who you addresses this. The skin developer can not add a more fancy genre view as long as the AlbumPlayer does not support this. But it is in my mind already for a longer time, so probably one day in future it will be in
