    Hi All,

    This is my first attempt at making a Moonshell 2 Skin. My other attempt at making skins is the ckt-elegant-navy for the SuperCard DSOne a long-long time ago. I haven't making another attempt at making skins since I own the acekard with akaio firmware (Already good skin provided, what more could I ask ? [​IMG] ) , so if I'm making a terrible mistake at this Moonshell 2 Skin-making attempt, please forgive me guys [​IMG]

    and feel free to criticize my attempt [​IMG]

    I hope you all like it [​IMG]

    I will probably make another skin(s), but before that, there is something that bugged me when making this skin. My Moonshell always halted and freeze after every screenshot making attempt. Does anyone know the workaround for this problem ?

    The skin is awesome x3, but I think you should change the video buttons to match the audio panel (they look cooler xD). Other than that, it looks pretty awesome. (you could try making a custom icon set for the entire thing too)

    No, there's no way around that. Is there a start setup screen and launch screen? Are there 3 screensavers? Perhaps adding icons?

    Looks pretty good. Less is more in this case.

    jurassicplayer : Yeah, you point it out right [​IMG] , I'll change the video buttons after I'm done watching the "Merantau" movie, gotta go to the cinema, yeeehaw

    KingdomBlade : So the freezing and halting after creating a screen-shot is a normal behavior I guess *sigh* . Nope, I haven't change the start-up setup screen and the launch animated screen, but maybe I will make one for the start-up setup screen. As for screen saver , I decided just to change the default font and background screen. Thank you for your suggestion about the Icon, I'll see what I can do to them. (I'm not a very good Icon maker ^^; )

    benjaminlibl : Thanks Bruv [​IMG]

    And now...Cinema time! Judging from the trailer, the "Merantau" movie looks pretty neat, you have to try to watch it when the DVD becomes available for International market.

    No, it's very easy to find icons around the internet.

    I already change two of the icon, the "x" (cancel) mark and the check (apply) mark [​IMG] . As for the other icon , I think I'll stick to the default one because I find the other icons on the internet is not as simple as I would like and if there is a simple one, it's kinda not fitted into the skin style (Aside from tango project, I like their icons).

    Anyway, new version , thanks to jurassicplayer and KingdomBlade suggestion . Here's the changelog :

    v1.0.1
    -Change the icon for video player (suggested by jurassicplayer).
    -Fix overflowing text at the launch top background screen.
    -Redesign the start-up Setup Screen (suggested by KingdomBlade).
    -Added a Launch Splash Screen (suggested by KingdomBlade).
    -Added two type of Launch Screen (30fps and 60fps)

    dud is a misfire/failure, so your link to the 60fps splash didn't work for me.

    actually the 60 FPS one worked for me but the skin file doesn't. This theme looks cool though, wish I could add it to my collection.

    Thanks Minox [​IMG] . My old skin still works on the newest SCDS1 batch ? :wtf: , which one ? . Because the last thing I heard is that the TWEWY skin freezed the newest SCDS1 batch.

    Anyway, added new variant of the ckt-mshl2 with the black (and red) feel around it. Feel free to download from the front page and please notify me if there is something wrong with the skin [​IMG]

    To change the splash just dump in the splash.ani file in the internal folder within the moonshl2 folder (although if you want to keep the original one, you should take that out and put it somewhere first).
