Guides on emulating older applications

iTunes Skin Master is a tool to create, change, and download skins for Apple iTunes. It customizes the look of your iTunes quickly and easily without a need for any special programming skills.

With Skin Master you can patch new graphics into iTunes automatically and safely without using ResEdit and copying resources manually.

It lets you download and import existing skin resources into a regular skin and paste them to your iTunes with a click.

Untested in an emulator. Only works with iTunes 2.0.x. Docs speak of an OS X version.

DL #1 runs as a limited demo program, only. Although at one time you would have been able to fully activate it with a purchased serial. The serial entry itself, required on-line activation to be validated. The company that released this utility is no longer in business, therefore any given serial will not work.

The patched copy in DL #2, is now the best option for having a fully working version of this program.


Architecture: PPC

PPC Mac OS 8.5+ (but iTunes requires Mac OS 9+)

iTunes Skin Master works with iTunes 2.x only. Older and newer iTunes versions are not supported.

Now that's what I call a 'Whataburger' special! Wink thx for the fixes, Hamburger!

Good to know Smile I did not test the download server, but expected this much. Most time-consuming part was definitely custom skin de-watermarking. I didn't have anything appropriate to set a breakpoint, so I had to step starting from when the "skin!" menu item is selected. Spent nearly an hour stepping in macsbug to find the money. I either suppressed the check for "is this a custom skin?" or "is this copy registered?" at skin application time, not sure which one. Suppressing the nag screen at startup and quit was otherwise much more straightforward, I simply replaced the subroutine call with a no-op.

Works great with iTunes 2. I didn't get that far into it, but the window and button skinning works fine with no issues. The only thing that makes it crash is when it tries to connect to a long-dead server to download more skins. Thanks for taking the time to make this useful!

My patched version is up. Works for me, here's how it should behave:

- On first run when you're just done with the setup assistant, the nag screen will appear only once. After that, it will no longer appear on launch or quit.

- Custom skins are no longer watermarked when applied.

- Splash screen still has 'demo' on it

- Selecting 'Register..' menu item/ clicking on 'Register..' in the about box will fire up the Register/nag screen just like it did before.

Same packaging, but there's both the patched [k] and the untouched version in. Tested on 2 different macs, but please leave feedback if it works for you. I've left the serial needed notice just in case.

I think this accepts iTunes 2.0.x only; when I tried to skin an iTunes1.1 it complained about it not being iTunes 2.
