µTorrent Skin Browser

maybe it'll get some attention now that it's not just one person reporting it. it's can't be entirely client side.

If it saves the bandwidth and database connection headaches, I'm all for it. I can live with refreshing manually.

can someone tell me why the preview for my tab set looks weird on the skins page? it looks fine in µTorrent, but it's got weird outlines around some icons on the skins page.

edit: the tab set is crystal svg

edit 2: i looked through the thread and reuploading gimmicky stuff seems to be the general cure or whatever, so i did that. didn't make any difference.

Probably has something to do with the image format (what kind of transparency in the BMP)...? I *think* I recall this type of problem happening before... don't remember solution. Determination, or someone equally knowledgeable in this area?

i used gimp to set pink as the transparent color, then put my icons on top of that, then saved as a png and used alphaconv to create a bmp.

New version of Skins Browser out!

What's new:

- Categories are separate now

- Loading time is twice as fast

- Much easier and faster edit/delete dialog

- Sortable columns (click on column header to sort the skins)

- Cache problems *should* be gone as well

Phew, that was quite a lot of work ;)

Nice layout. Tho, with the graphics in 1.4.2 you hardly need to change anything.

Anyone else find it ironic that the top 2 toolbars are based on the top 2 torrent clients(excluding utorrent of course).

aye, and many other popular ones are freely available icons packs. It's hard for us designers to make new content when we have to compete with large open source icons sets like Gnome.

I think that category 'Program Icons' and 'Tab Icons' should switch places.

you need to save the file with no background whatsoever. This make the semi-transparent edge blur to whatever is below, not a specific color.

thanks for the info. i've edited the file. it hasn't changed on the site, but i think i need to give it some time to change it. i'll check later.

Stoic: it does it right away, try clearing your cache and refreshing.

edit: er wait, MaV said the cache problems were fixed... so i dunno. good work MaV though! :D

MaV: I really like the new layout, but why have you taken away the option to sort by "date added"? It was asked by a lot of people in the past, and I really miss it.

Yes, I know, it's because I can't find a place where it should go. The skins are now sorted by the columns, and new one won't fit there, there's too little space. Any suggestions ?
