Question

My WinAMP skin doesn't load. Now I can't pretend I'm using Windoze :-(

Answer

There are lots of reasons why this might fail. First, remember to have the xad package installed to use packed skins. Otherwise they can't be unpacked and will be ignored. Then, remember that only 'classic' WinAMP skins will load (WinAMP v3 and below). The newer skins use XML and we can't support them. Also there seems to be a bug/limitation in the default MorphOS BMP datatype (and maybe some others, like the CGX package one) in that it doesn't load some kinds of compressed BMP. If you don't want to install a different datatype, try unpacking the archive (if its archived) and converting the BMP files to another format. Don't rename them.
