Modern Cards [Updated 2014-09-19][New styles!] by Dirhael Modern Cards [Updated 2014-09-19][New styles!] by Dirhael
## MODERN CARDS JRMC SKIN
Modern Cards is a simple theme for JRiver Media Center 18, 19 & 20 (will probably work with earlier releases, but I haven't tested with anything below 18), inspired in part by Google Now's Card UI, Microsoft Office 365 and Windows 8 (hence the name). It's still in development, and improvements and changes will be posted from time to time.

## UPDATES
* 2014.09.19: Added "active" playerbar button colors (by request).
* 2014.09.18: Added DSP-direct button highlighting.
* 2014.08.28: Public release of the updated skin.
* 2014.08.28: Added a more pronounced search box for the Windows 8 version of the skin.
* 2014.08.27: Added 3 new editions of the skin: Windows 8, Ubuntu & OSX Yosemite. Thanks to "Awesome Donkey" for his help with testing and acquiring window buttons! Also tweaked the coloring of the original "Duo" version of the skin, and various bug-fixes.
* 2014.08.24: Started work on implementing different window decorations, and playerbar styles.
* 2014.05.07: Started work on customized action window icons.
* 2014.05.07: Flatter look for custom sidebar icons, a bit more in line with Windows 8 Modern UI (no *new* icons added yet).
* 2014.05.05: Fixed broken DSP-direct button.
* 2014.05.01: Added a new duo-toned version of the skin, with a dark player- and bottom bar. Also tweaked the scroll-bar handles in the original bright version.
* 2013.09.14: Fixed a couple of glaring bugs (such as a missing "repeat off" button, and a missing "dsp off" button).

## INSTALLATION

Installation really is quite simple. Just extract the zip file, and copy the contents directly into your JRiver Media Center folder. By default this folder can be located in `C:\Program Files (x86)\J River`. The skin comes with custom icons that replaces several of the stock icons. If you don't want this part of the skin, skip copying the "Custom Art" folder.

## NOTE

This skin does not in any way support retina/hidpi display settings at this time. You can read my reasoning in this post on my blog. I may yet implement support for this in the future, but no promises...

Hello Dirhael,
Thanks for your effort. I like this skin very much. But I have tried this skin to add on my windows 8.1 as per your instruction and its not working. BTW my jRiver verson is 19.0.146. Is there have any other way?

There is really no reason it shouldn't work on your computer. Are you sure that you're not placing the extracted files incorrectly? The "Data" and "Skins" folder needs to be placed directly in the same folder as your "Media Center 19.exe" file.

On 32-bit Windows, this would be: 
"C:\Program Files\J River\Media Center 19\"

and on 64-bit:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\J River\Media Center 19\"

Love the skin. My only thing is there any way to change the white backgrounds. I find they all blend together a little too much. Otherwise I love this.

left side icons doesn't make any sense your theme is " modern " shouldn't icons be flat ? :)

So...decided to do some quick tweaks to the already customized sidebar icons (no new ones added yet), somewhat more in line with Win8's "modern ui" :)

Happy to hear you like the theme, despite the icons :) See, I've had more or less the same debate with myself regarding whether or not to have them styled more "modern ui/metro"-ish (not sure if I like that look or not). It may happen at some point, 'though I haven't done much work on them in quite some time. In fact, most are carried over from my previous two skins (one of them unreleased) and there are still a whole bunch of them missing.

Excellent work! Looks wonderful and works well with v19.

I REALLY would love that you release a dark version of this skin. A variation of the current one with just the top section in a dark color to make contrast with everything else would also be a delight!

You can now grab a copy of a work-in-progess version of the version you wanted :) There shouldn't be any problems that aren't also in the original version, but I'd appreciate it if you (and anyone else) gave feedback on any bugs you might encounter.

Just started playing around with what you're asking for. Don't have any estimates for when it'll be done, but I'll get it done eventually :)

Logged in just to say thank you for the skin and please keep updating it or at least make a final release sooner or later. It's really great and made me convert from Foobar to JRiver albeit I'm only on the trial version.

Great to hear you're checking our JRMC, it really is a good media solution. Been using it myself since version 12 I think, and like you I also switched from fb2k. I'll keep updating the skin as best I can :) How often depends mostly on RL commitments. Seeing as I'm working full time as a nurse, at times the day just doesn't have enough hours..
