Hmm weird!

I've tested it with 0.8.5.1356 like 2 weeks ago and worked flawless.

You have to notice that after an update, the resources.zip file gets rewritten, that's why you have to replace it again.

 

If that doesn't work, do you get any error messages or how does the skin "not work" anymore?

I replaced it twice and when I restart spotify it doesn't give me any errors.

The skin doesn't work at all, when I start spotify it uses it's default skin.

Okay, no errors and default skin .... are you sure you don't use the backup default resources.zip file?

That's pretty much the only explanation I can come up with. If you replace the correct one and the files get rewritten, Spotify has no chance but to use that black skin! :P

 

It's in the first folder of this download file here.

No I'm not computer illiterate, I clicked on the resources.zip in the folder.

It's just not possible that it does NOT load the skin if you did everything like I've outlined in my tutorial. There gotta be some mistake somewhere. Please go step by step carefully through the tutorial again, maybe check out the tutorial on youtube too. If you did everything like that, you are bound to have the black skin. It's not like there's any choice for Spotify, the default skin simply does not exist anymore if you did it correctly and can't be loaded from somewhere else either.

It isn't rocket science..

I was able to do it before I updated to the newer version.

After updating I tried it again and it doesn't work. It's not that hard to simply copy the zip file over and replace the original file.

And yes I know how to unzip the download. No I'm not unzipping the resources.zip

Well apparently it is rocket science. :P

Seems like you have somehow renamed the whole downloaded file to resources.zip?

The sizes are not matching at all. The one in my downloaded folder has 1,9 MB while yours in the Spotify data folder has over 4.3.

 

Something went wrong there...

Do you plan to create a skin like this grey one which was default in latest version? I hate this white one now and your black ones are a bit too dark for me :c

I'll just figure it out on my own. Either way I did the same process before I updated to the new version and it worked fine.

The process itself is just extracting and replacing a zip folder.

Thanks for responding though.

I wish I could! Spotify introduced new white web-based elements that sadly can not be changed with my method. It can only change native UI elements like the sidebar or the header/footer etc. :(

That's why it looks kinda inconsistent at the moment, they didnt adjust the native parts yet.
