Classic Skinning ......... again....

So, yeah, to celebrate the fact it's 10 years nearly since I first skinned, I'm picking up the tools again and finishing off a classic skin that's been sat in my vaults for a couple of years, expect retro 80's pixel gaming fun.

Who knows if I'll ever finish it !, watch this space......might also be the first in a series of classic skins that were never finished.. but more likely won't be....

The worst thing is, it's been so long since I actually started to build a classic skin from scratch, I can't for the life of me remember how some bits work :-O

nOOb's eh, can't live with 'em...

I like it, though I feel that the bright blue squares don't do it any justice.

I'd turn the second crystal upside down to symbol "next" where as the first one pointing down is "previous"

Blimey, it's lively in here, I can see why I post now...

Anyhows, some updates attached, also, what you can't see... completed a video / mb window, yes yes, I know, it's legacy support and five minutes of time to change and cursors, yes, cursors done as well, found a neato freeware package, where was that years ago when I had to keep downloading hacks and cracks for my cursor design!

Stuck a wee bit on the gen windows, what I want to do dosn't fit, so having a bit of a think........

Also need to put some thought into winshades, kind of done the main and PL ones, already, need a brush up.

Oh, and need to finish off the PL a bit, missing a button down there....

This is the classic skinning game Jones, you have to wait a while to actually get any feedback, it's looking great though.

I'm still thrown off by the penis's at the bottom. I'm very interested in seeing the EQ finished.

They are not penises, blimey, you lot are obsessed by the cock!, seek therapy... they are castle guards, albeit slightly reduced in size to fit into the design...

attached...


if i get time I'll animate one as they would have been seen in the original game..., normally they'd walk around, and this was ever turned into the modern skin it was originally intended to be, I'd re-animate them, so to speak.

Oh those!, dude, if you winkie looks like that, never mind seeking therapy, seek medical help right away

they are old style poision bottles, it was the 'widest' sprite I could use to get some symbols onto them.


/oh, and don't get so excited for the EQ, it's pretty flat, that's where I fell down when I first started this skin years ago, trying to make a 3d EQ, it either didn't work or ended up looking like I'd lifted it right out of someone elses skin, so it's ended up being flat as you can get it !

That's low Jones, and I was going to make you another limited orange skin too.

Edit/ I'm liking the bottles though, much better.

I like them too, so much that I went home and started to re-do them again, I used a slightyl wrong scale on them compared to the other sprites, so need to change then, not sure why didn't notice it this morning, but hey ho!

It's so Cheerful. Jones! And not Gauche at all. I sometimes still use Kurtz. It makes me go "Native". It has a fun cursor, also. So, is this available, soon?

Remember... no Classic skin is complete until it's been run through the Cappy Debugging Machine.

(although, damn, ten-year-older eyes and ten-year-newer monitor resolutions make these skins hard to see!)

Lunatic fringe, we know you're out there.

Oh my, Cappy and Duk both in one day, let me check the calender, it must be 2001, not 2010.

BTW, review system used to be better when you guys still reviewed, now it is total crap.
