    I've tried making it smaller, but it stay large. I've tried looking at others skins but their clocks are all large fonts.

    resize the actual bmp image as its drawn based on the width and height of the bmp file.

    Ok nevermind, its a bit buggy on Acekard skin editor but works ok in Ak edit. Now is their a way to change the font style (letters)? I don't see an option for that...

    Theres no easy toggle to switch fonts around, but it can be done manually.
    First off you need some fonts. Heres a font pack that gelu put totether. Put them in the fonts folder thats in the __aio folder.
    Now go to the language folder (also found in the __aio folder) and open the lang_en and edit the language.txt w/a text editor to change the font.
    Code:
    [font]
    main = tahoma.pcf

    oh yeah, dont use wenquanyi_9pt.pcf, Smiths committed it out of AKAIO due to problems it caused
