    ...I'm trying to change a theme's colours on each of the screens but the text inside the theme.ini file is just gobble de gook!

    Does any have a clue what each one represents or point me to a link that helps?

    I've tried to use SimplySkin v1.0a but it crashes with the following error...

    ERROR in
    action number 1
    of Draw Event
    for obj_1_scr1:

    Trying to draw non-existing sprite

    ABORT or IGNORE


    If jdbye, the author of SimplySkin, is reading this perhaps he could tell me why it doesn't work....

    That error, it's a Game Maker error (I used to use GM a lot). There's nothing you can do to fix it, it's the developer's fault.

    Download one of the themes on this forum and use the ini file from that skin for your own.

    Above the colour value there should be an explanation of what it's for.

    The R4 forum has a nice little guide.

    Check it out here.
    Down near the bottom of the first post, is where you wanna look.
