    Moonshell 2 Skin Making Guide​
    Made by KingdomBlade​

    INTRODUCTION
    This is a work in progress and intended primarily for beginners. Most tech-savvy people can already figure this out on their own. I'm not including specific images that would generally not be edited such as the check boxes, however, at a later time I may feel like placing them on here. This is mostly a work in progress, and it's certainly not as good as I want it to be (I'm having one of those pessimist moments again) but I guess I'll figure out a way to improve it later. I know the format is extremely compressed but the point of that is to get where you want to be right away and to lessen loading times. I thought that the whole 4 step process thing might look nice. There are tiny FAQ's on the bottom of the steps, so that I can avoid making a big FAQ section later. Make sure to post if you have problems or suggestions or if you have something nice to say about it. Please keep your criticism civilized. I spent 6 hours on this and it would be nice to get some nice comments.​

    Yeah. That was like a year ago, that isn't really "nostalgic".

    Kaze no Fish's Skin Unpacker ... Kaze no Fish is not the maker of the makeskin unpacker, it's Carpfish and i'm 110% sure. [​IMG]
    He is also the maker of FishShell 2 that you can run on iSmart Premium.
