Hi all DWJ friends!

SO, LHUPATECH comes back after years of non skinning for DWJ due its non functionality on Windows 8, 10*!

As all of us know about it, the new Windows* versions blocks the mouse function as well as all DOS applications as DWJ since Windows XP*!

Dermbrian experienced a DWJ skin project on a Windows 8* tablet some years ago and this worked great on his YouTube demonstration! - Since, LHUPATECH has didn't  done any skin tryout at all because the use of a tablet PC so called a "TV box" after the desktop computer used for skinning DWJ burned out after a power outage and then, an overcharge!

About a week ago, Some tryouts on that Windows 10* "TV box" have been done ant this worked great! But, solely large buttons (Square about 180 X180 in size for the current tryout) works great on an about 10 inch touch screen pad! - Using a standard DWJ skin will work but truly bad with unattended errors in button response!

The present LHUPATECH DWJ skin tryout uses only one PNG background as user interface with large square transparent link buttons directly from the songs links themselves (usually used as "title strips" on the selecting panel or "index" and three other buttons of the same size as two for scanning pages ("Previous Page", "Next Page" buttons) and the other for exiting the jukebox software ("EXIT" button). - The skin project has only two indicators (i-e "Playing" and Coming Up") for viewing the song or "tune" playing and the other for the upcoming ones!

This constitutes the simplest DWJ skin ever from LHUPATECH since its debuts in DWJ skinning! - The skin is named "LHUPATECH Schenectady SchenPad" (for its pad touch screen application) and it belongs to the "Schenectady" specialty skin series first issued in 2007 for cabinet jukebox or kiosk use!

As you should remember, the "LHUPATECH Schenectady" and then, later the other one in widescreen version (i-e "LHUPATECH Schenectady WS") skin didn't use mouse at all and it consists only of an user interface with the selecting panel or "index" screen and indicators, using only an external switchboard or regular computer keyboard whatever USB, PS1 or using a KCRTB device (that stands for "Keyboard Cross-Referral terminal Box"): usually an USB device connected between the computer and the jukebox or kiosk switchboard!

The new DWJ skin from LHUPATECH will be available in ten different colors plus a wood finish one in two viewing options resulting of a package or collection of 22 skins as: Aqua, Blue, Cyan, Fuschia, Green, harvest Gold, HGWood (Harvest Gold with a wood finish), Pink, Red, White and Yellow! As told above, The skin project will be viewable in two options as in solid color as well as in luminated  (backlighted effect) options!

So, it will be available soon for download from Wildenborch dot com through Fred Van Veen either user of this forum! It will be also available on the present forum throughout a specific topic from LHUPATECH then, Wildenborch dot com!


Truly happy to make skins again for DWJ!
I hope that this makes you satisfied to use LHUPATECH's DWJ skins again!

Have fun!

Dear Jukejohn!,

Thankyou so much!!!! Your positive news make me confiant! So, I will retry to send screenshots of my new skin right now after reading you! The forum doesn't find the attachment uploading path! I had tried at least 10 times with absolutely no success with the same error message!... I'm just retried it and the problem persists! Did you know who has that forum now? Usually that's Chris La Mantia the creator of DWJ that has the control of this but now Brian Dermody? Where I can fix that problem?

Have fun!

Hi.  I don't control the forum.  I have the ability to delete spam posts and spam users and exercise that fairly frequently.  That's the limit of my additional authority.

I sent an email to Chris to let him know of the upload issue.  I'd like to see your new skin too......

Jukejohn, Dermbrian,

As I said, I tried one more time after replied to you and unfortunately, this crap doesn't work at all!... The uploading problem persists! Some years ago, I had a forum project for all my projects (electronic as well skinning) with this "company" and I got full damnation with until I decide to abandon!!!!!! - Perhaps Chris will be able to fix it... I hope!

Jukejohn, Dermbrian,

I got an idea! Did someone of you can upload something as a picture, a screenshot of your projects on the same uploading path as I used on your side? If you get the same error message, it results of a technical issue of the forum itself! On the other hand, if it uploads correctly without any issues, the problem is on my side and I will must find what it goes wrong!


Thanks of your collaboration!
