Regarding sync, you have two buttons :
- sync beat/tempo/BPM
- sync key

There are two little black rectangle to activate sync, below the "sync" text and next to the +0.00 (BPM offset) and key (like Em#)

sblaisot - I´ve noticed that you DONT have the included "digital font" installed in your system. That helps a LOT to make the visuals pretty... ;)
sblaisot "(...) There are two little black rectangle to activate sync (...)" - Yep, one for BPM sync, other for KEY sync... Or... am I missing something?... :?:
In your image, how the "heck" do you have that elements description?... Dont tell me there is a GUI for QT or Mixxx development... If there is... I´ll trow someone in deep ocean!!!... :cry:

Hi jorgerosa,

Yes, I know I didn't installed the font. on THAT computer on which I don't use mixxx too much. not yet...
I have the font installed on my main computer.

I was responding about sync to previous post telling he didn't find the way to make sync work ;)

To have that extended tooltip, start Mixxx with --developer command-line option and simply put the mouse on an element and wait for the tooltip ;)
see "Start Mixxx in developer mode: Mixxx –developer to see extended tooltips for skinner and a menu item and keyboard shortcut to reload changes in skin.xml" in http://www.mixxx.org/wiki/doku.php/creating_skins
please choose someone else than me to be thrown in deep ocean :-D

Re: [DARK METAL] - 27 Colors - SVG - 980x350 Resizable!

Thank you Jorge for the Super and the Mix button on the effects. I did not download today's version yet. (I'm at work), but looks like you have further improved the Effects section.. I can't wait to see it :)

While working on the Mixtrack Pro 3 mapping, I noticed what may either be a bug or something not yet implemented with the Library button that expand the Library to use the full window. In your skin, the feature is there and works, but if I try to map the "Library" button to a controller button, it does not work.

The following code: "engine.setValue("[Master]","maximize_library",1)" produces the desired effect in Deere Skin, but does not work in yours. Any idea what would cause this?

Thanks
Steph

Steph (...)"but does not work in yours. Any idea what would cause this?"(...) - Yep, I know exactly why doesnt work. You should do:
Code: Select all
// Minimizes the library:
engine.setValue("[Hifi]","show",1)

Code: Select all
// Maximizes the library:
engine.setValue("[Hifi]","show",0)

Why I voided the "old" way? Because I´ve read about a bug, commented in Deree skin too, that says: "Fixed is interesting here. Ignore is the only thing that lets it shrink to nothing." That sounds like that something needs to be corrected (maybe on Mixxx or in QT)...
So I´ve opted by the "show", it hits the widget´s "visible" property, this way its simple, clean and never fails ;)
Report the result after you apply this, please. Should work 200%, but............... Thanks! :)

Hello Jorge,

I just tried it and it works 200% ! I will include a configuration option in my script for the users to specify the skin they use and then code accordingly. Unless there is a way to get the name of the skin in use with engine.getvalue... If that is possible, it will prevent having to edit options everytime someone want to use a different skin.

Thanks
Steph

Hello Jorge

Do you think it would be possible to add Slip Mode to your skin? Deere is the only one that currently has it:

It could be in the same location on your skin:

Thanks

Steph (...)"add Slip Mode"(...) - Done.
Slip Mode buttons were added. Please note that I had to reduce all the other buttons in that row, so small screen users may see them too, without any ugly graphics overlaps. Its not my case, but everything must fit nice for resolutions from 980 pixeis width... (I´ll follow this "rule" as far as possible...) ;)

Hello Jorge,
I know that the idea of the Grey (Metal) color scheme is to be minimal and I love it! Is my fave! But may be you could create a version giving some more life to the waves, based in different tones of white, black , grey, etc. It becomes a bit boring only with the white.
