SkinTester 1.7

CycloDS Evolution Skin Tester v1.7

With this program you can test CycloDS Evolution skins - without to copy them on your DS.
Copy the "SkinTester.exe" directly into the skin-folder with the skin.xml-file and start it.
You can run it also from any directory without a "skin.xml". Go into the "Tools" menu and click "Load Skin" to select one. If you use older versions of Skin Tester, you will be asked for the skin, when the program starts.

Skin Database
You need an open internet connection to browse the skin database.
Open the database in Tools-Menu. On the left side, you can select the category. Then the skins should list on the right side (20 skins per page). Double click them and they will load into skintester. There you can save it (Tools-menu -> Save Skin As).
Make sure, that you have some free space on your hard disk - the data will be stored in program folder.

How to use Plugins:
Plugins are simple *.dll files. Copy them to the program directory.
The plugin filenames should start with "pi_". One plugin can also
start with "pia_". This will be auto-loaded on program-start. You
can switch the active plugin in Tools-Menu > "Skin-Module".
I will add later example code how to write plugins.

    "earliest example of porn"
    An ivory statuette of a well-endowed woman discovered in Germany suggests that humanity's earliest art might have been of the erotic variety. Digging in a cave near Stuttgart last fall, University of Tübingen archaeologist Nicholas Conard unearthed what he says is the most ancient representation of a human female yet found--and, at more than 35,000 years old, one of the oldest sculptures ever discovered.
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    but that isn't really porn, this might be the earliest actual porn
