Topic: VDJ Dark Skin - Adding elements to the info window
I'm currently using the VDJ Dark skin, what I would like to ask and see if there is anyone out there that can add additional info elements to the display window, you know the section where it display the Artist & Track etc.
So as there is space within this window, I was hoping that I could add additional info from the tag editor section, for example the year etc.
Ideally I would like the following info adding to this space (if possible) ?
Is this do-able, I looked at the skin editor/creator app, but I simply can't get my head around it at all, if someone could please guide/help me or better still, just add those 3 elements I mention above to that area, that would be wonderful.

Stage 2, you're working with textzones
these are the lines where the existing textzones exist 1698,1704,2531,2537,
you'll want to add more textzones.
to deal with the mini decks textzones at lines are the region to look at 4391,4397,4443,4449
Sorry I can't help more, but it should be enough for you to try stuff.

I was hoping that someone would perhaps have a go at adding these additional things onto the skin for me, as I'm sure it would be reasonably easy for someone in the know

I'm wanting those 3 additional bits of info adding to the display window and I can't do that, not even with the editor, I would still presume it is, but again it requires "coding" to some degree.
However, thank you for pointing me in that direction with that skin, it is great for playing about with, but as I say I still can't get what I want to display, I did have this on an old skin, perfectly on VDJ 7 (It's a skin that I can't use on VDJ 8 btw, so it's not a matter of just using this on 8, it just doesn't work, which is a shame)

VDJ 7 skins should work fine in VDJ 8. Most of the code is still compatible. It's the older ones that can cause issues. Which skin is it?

It pulls in the year, comment and genre
Just let me know if you would like a copy to try it out. It's only a two deck skin though.

This is the skin I had on VDJ7 and you can see that all the info easily fitted within that space, I appreciate if the artist & title is a little bit longer, then yeah it could be an issue, but it rarely was.

As I'm a video jock, I like bigger preview screens or as big as possible, as scratching & mixing to some degree is not what I'm or my functions are about
And yes Kradcliffe I would appreciate a copy of your modified skin if that's Ok, I can see that skin has a few of things I need and you have added some more.
As long as it has the year, genre & comments field on it (along with the obvious of Artist & title) then that'd be spot on, anything else is a bonus I guess
