WOW!!!! Fantastic. Does indeed remind me of Enkera just much better.

Getting impatient when I see this. This forum is running a bit dry at the moment. I know, several people are working on skins. But its been a while since we've seen some fireworks!!

Thanks a lot dude883.

Like said before; WOW.

This is excellent, the lighting is spot on. Only thing i dislike is the crowdness of the mode. But hell, the rest makes up for it!

As McShitnolds would say, i'm loving it. :P

nice.. double nice. the bar mode does seem like a frankenstin-ing between 2 great skins. and if it is done like that (not a bad thing), u coud ad a drop-down pledit in it. don't think anyone would mind. i woudn't.
i reealy like the timer. does it work like that? RPC, HOWWWWW???

how? very easy. you make a hidden text and let it show the timer, then you make two more text objects. Each one with diferent looking. Then you take your text editor and start to code. Make a a timer and then do something like this:

PHP Code:
mytimer.ontimer(){
string myString hiddenTimer.gettext();

bigText.settext(strmid(myString ,0,2));
smallText.settext(strmid(myString ,3,3));


somethign like this should work very fine. I have coded a more complicated timer then this one days ago

Ya, this skin is turning out great, I like the preview because it doesn't give everything away.

You can just use the .onTextChanged() event of the hidden timer text object and then parse out what you need. I figure the less MAKI timer objects the better.

...carlos always first goes the difficult way

883, as i said on deviantart:
VERY nice! reminding me on enkara, as some people already mentionned, but i really prefer this one
your metal is lovely, btw
got a tut for this? ;D
btw:
perhaps you should lighten everything up a bit, except the metal. it's looking a bit too flat as it'S too dark.... but with themes... hm.. will be different... forget what i just said

I'm not a fan of tutorials, but I will upload a walkthrough that shows various steps of how I work once the skin is done and submitted at the usual places.

It looks really nice. I'm curious about the whole docking holder thingy. It looks like a cool concept. I was a fan of that enkera skin, so I'm sure this one will be just as good, if not better. Just make sure that the shade mode is usable and looks good, and has good notifiers. That's what I really want the most.

think they're nice for learning, as far as you edit them to your liking when doing them.


VERY nice

Main mode looks nice but the top thin winshade mode needs work. It's almost impossible to read or see the icons. Most people won't use a skin that is hard to see or read. They may download it but won't use it for long. Make it easy to use and people will use it for a long time. Just my opinion...

Keep in mind guys that the preview shows the skin at only 75% it's original size. At full-res those icons and buttons are nice and crisp.

Just letting you know, I've finished a nice amount of color themes, 72 to be more precisely.
If you have any suggestions what I could add (e.g. "I want an ipod one") please write them down and let me know! pictures would be quite helpful, please post the urls if you find any!
