Thanks for continued interest, people.
I haven't had enough time (or patience) to sit down and finish up the main theme skin file. Downloaded the training skin, but it doesn't do much in helping label the areas of the skin that you need to style.
I'll finish it up and release it at some point soon!
just use that training skin dreadm made and use another copy of a skin msz file change that to zip unzip it in to a folder to keep it seperated from other files.
now go in there and open the mskn file for the theme with the theme engine used to make the skin.
now in that theme engine go to the menu bar and on the file menu you will see a option to export images.
click that and it will export the images in the skin theme.mskn to the folder the theme.mskn is located.
then all you got to do is open each of those images in image editor and change them to what you want.
make sure you change the extenstion of the image to show only the first one because that is what it is
the theme engine just puts both on there for some reason?
so baiscly its like i say in the forum here from time to time, just covering the playing cards with your own photos, which is skinning the deck of cards.
then just go to the image node in the mskn on the engine, and replace the ones in that theme you are using as a copy templete, then you can see how to make the theme mskn.
my fast newbies walk through on the wiki site is for making the theme mskn and i go in to more detail there.
and it is a step by step way of doing it. some tips were added by steegy for more advanced skinners or scripters that read it. and i added some updates.
but you can read that and get it done fairly fast. just remember that walkthrough is simple in fashion it is just to get your foot in the door of making a skin.
