Getting Ready

If you're reading this, I'm guessing you already have KoolMoves. If you don't, you can get it at the KoolMoves web site. Go ahead. I'll wait ...

Back? O.K. Create a new folder "test" in "C:\Program Files\KoolMoves\Bin\AS3\Skins." With NotePad or such, create two files in this new folder named as follows:

info.txt
name.txt

Create a new folder "MediaPlayer" in "test." Create five files in this new folder named as follows:

imagelist.txt
size.txt
setup.as
imports.as
events.as

Put this in the "name.txt" file & save:

test

That is the name of you new media player.

Put this in the "size.txt" file & save:

minw
300
maxw
800
minh
300
maxh
800

That is the height and width limits of you new media player.

Put this in the "info.txt" file & save:

cshadow
0
audvid
2
fd
0
pl
0
colors
0
drag
0
argb
0

That is information about of you new media player (More on that later).

Put this in the "setup.as" file & save:

AssetManager.registerBitmapDataAsset(new BitmapData(2,2,false,0xaaaaaa),'under');
underlay.setSkin('under');
underlay.setSize(_width,_height);
underlay.move(0,0);

This is your new media player.
