I took the 'Multipass Carbon' skins (windowblinds and rainy) and darkened them (gamma adjustment in windowblinds - photoshop for rainy). Added a font called 'InvisibleKiller' to everything. Changed to Gt3 icons for the darker look. Brightened and saturated all the blues a bit. Broke out an old Warcraft wallpaper (gave it more blue and more saturation) to go with it all. Also changed my IconX settings for a better match on the desktop. Silver Relic cursorXP. Some 'The Blacy' icons finish it off. Still workin on a darker Multipass Winamp (not much experience foolin with that prgram - lol - I think I can get what I'm after tho). As always I reduced the screenshot from the original 1600x1200 pixels to 1280x960 for posting here.
Serious work here, Ernest! Well Done!
That's a SS!!! Like the walland .... everything Great work and I'll be looking forward to you winamp ....... ohh, and a nice touch with the user-display
thx - was fun puttin it together - get that Winamp done eventually - hehe
Just curious, but did you do the user-display in PS and if, how did you save it (haven't seen if it png, but I doubt - usually bmp)?
i used photoshop to alter the user bar. i saved it in .bmp with the magic pink as background. i also saved a .tga version with a clear background but i'm havin trouble gettin that one to work witht he large username (i may have to change the whole start menu to .tga and use all per-pixel to get it to work properly. the shadows work better with .tga's so i'm workin on that) i can send you the files if you want to play with them. i'm aimin for .tga files cause that what all the new wba5 skins use for the per-pixel effects. i want to add glows and sounds to the buttons once i figure that out too. eventually i'll have enuf knowledge to make my own complete skins.
that is so cool! I love the colors.
that really looks nice
