    it's very pretty; I just put it on my RPG.

    Technically, with this theme one could remove "START" from the language.txt and ust have that logo.
    The top screen is nice, could use some definitions or screens for the clock and whatnot.. jus a small frame with a little opacity to create that "overlayed" effect.

    But... bug... the file info text is white , so it doesn't show up in any dialog box (file info for example), and in options dialog there's no way to tell what option is selected.
    At least on my RPG it doesn't.

    But I do like it, simply because it's readable (besides dialog box/selected item). Most skin authors for the RPG/AK2 don't realize people have to be able to easily read options and see what's selected.

    Keep tweaking it and I'd definitely add it to the AKAIO package.
    Which is forthcoming.
    Once Korea makes sure it's okay.

    Anyone got some preview screens or pictures? This would help generate more buzz for your skin. Regardless, I'm dloading and trying it out now. [​IMG]

    yeah preview pics would be nicfe to compare against the 2 vista skins on the acekard site
    maybe we could do with a thread (sticky) just for skins too as a new thread isn't needed for individual skins

    I'll try it out when my acekard 2 arrives. Anyone know if you can get a OS X skin?

    Or an iphone like interface?

    Looks nice, but I like skins with the start button on the right side, cause I'm right handed.

    Just tried it on my acekard 2 with v407.bliss.k09p1

    I cannot access the start menu with the touch pad, but I can go into the menu by pressing the DS' start button though, so something is not compatible.

    cut the bottom icon and move it over then as well as the start button coords if needed.

    nice looking skin

    Damn I think I might change back to my AceKard 2 and use this skin.
