|All SkinnyMix! skins are stored in a common folder (directory). Each skin is contained in it's own unique folder. You can name a skin folder as you desire.|
Skin folders should contain the following files:
skin.ini - This is the file which will Contain all of the horizontal and vertical coordinates of the top-left corner of each of the object graphics. Coordinates are stored in TWIPS, which may be confusing. It is ecommended you use SkinArranger to position the graphic objects.
icon.ico - This is the icon which will be displayed in the system tray. 16 color icons are recommended as they will display best in the system tray of Windows 9x/2K. We recommend Microangelo by Eclipsit Corporation.
mixerback.gif - This is the background image used by the mixer. It also will determine the shape of the mixer itself. Any part of the image which are the color magenta, represented by (255,0,255) or FF00FF, will be transparent.
trayvolback.gif - This is the background to the system tray volume adjuster. This graphic does not support transparency.
close.gif, titlebar.gif, minbutton.gif - These files represent the close button, title bar and minimize button respectively. Their pressed state graphics are closepress.gif, titlebarpress.gif, minbuttonpress.gif. The pressed and non-pressed graphics should be of the same size. Pressed graphics will have the same horizontal and vertical coordinates for their top-left corners as the non-pressed ones.
cdmute.gif, linemute.gif, mainmute.gif, micmute.gif, midimute.gif, wavemute.gif, auxmute.gif - These are the graphics used for the mutes of each the channels in the inactive or un-muted state.
cdmutechecked.gif, linemutechecked.gif, mainmutechecked.gif, micmutechecked.gif, midimutechecked.gif, wavemutechecked.gif, auxmutechecked.gif - These are the graphics used for the mutes of each the channels in the active or muted state.
traymute.gif, traymutechecked.gif - The tray mute graphics appear on the tray slider. This mute does the equivilate to muting the main.
cdback.gif, lineback.gif, mainback.gif, micback.gif, midiback.gif, waveback.gif, auxback.gif, bassback.gif, trebleback.gif,trayvolslider.gif - These are the backgrounds to the sliders.
cdthumb.gif, linethumb.gif, mainthumb.gif, micthumb.gif, midithumb.gif, wavethumb.gif, auxthumb.gif, bassthumb.gif, treblethumb.gif, traythumb.gif - These are the thumbs to the above sliders.
