    I'm planning to create an Acekard skin, but first I need to test one thing.

    I've created a test skin and I need someone to load with his Acekard using official firmware (NOT Wood), and tell me whether if shows up correctly. I don't have access to an Acekard right now, but I tested it on Wood (which as you might know, uses Acekard skins) and it showed perfectly. However, I'm not positive about whether Wood renders Acekard skins 100% accurately (ie: the elements of the calendar might be moved a few pixels).

    If you're willing to help, here is the skin I need you to test.

    There are 3 quick checks I need you to perform:

    1) Does the top screen display only a blue screen with nothing on it likes this, or does it show some red pixels like this (maybe not EXACTLY like it does in that picture; all what I care about is knowing whether it displays at least one red pixel)?
    IMPORTANT: Please make sure that your DS's current date is set to January. The day or year doesn't matter.

    2) In the lower screen, is there text showing the word "START" somewhere?

    3) If you touch the lower right corner of the lower screen, does it cause a menu to appear?

    Thank you for your help.

    Welcome to Gbatemp. :lol:

    1) It shows some red pixels. (Maybe a calendar?)
    2) Yes it shows start.
    3) Yup.

    Note: Nobody really uses the official firmware anymore since We have akaio.

    Good luck with Your skin. ^_^

    Thank you very much.

    Now, could I bother you again and ask you to test this updated version?

    The background of the upper screen was modified and is now divided in 3 different "areas" labeled as "Area 1", "Area 2" and "Area 3" respectively (example).

    There should appear pixels forming either dots or short lines of different colors than the background in one or more "areas".

    Here's an example of what the screen might look like.

    I need you to tell me what colors are those pixels (they can be red, green, yellow, or white), and in which area (or areas) they appear. If one area shows differently colored pixels than other, please specify this.

    For example, your report might look like this:
    Also, is the word "Start" still showing up in the lower screen?

    And one more thing: if you have the time and patience, could you test the skin with Akaio, too, and check if the results are the same?

    I already used akaio, Everyone is using it. So basically You're already making it for akaio.

    Area 1: 3 White dots.
    Area 2: Nothing.
    Area 3: Again nothing.
    And there is no start. (However when I touch that area the menu still pops up.)

    Thanks again, that was really helpful!

    Now, can we do just one more test? This should be the final one.

    I need you two answer two quick questions:
    1) Are the numbers in the calendar are showing correctly?
    2) Are the clock's numbers (which should display "00:00") centered in the clock area (the black rectangle with rounded edges in the upper right corner), or should I should move them?

    Hi, again. ;)

    1) No, I can't make anything out of it.
    2) Yes, It's perfect in place.

    As this was the last test (Probably), Good luck with creating Your skin,
    And I hope I can test it once it's done. :)

    Hmmm... could you download this image and move it in the folder "calendar" inside the skin's folder (overwriting the old file, day_numbers.bmp) and tell me if that fixes the calendar (edit: specifically, the days. the month and year don't matter)?
    I know that I said there wouldn't be more tests, but I didn't expect the calendar to display incorrectly. Sorry about that.

    The numbers are still not showed like the should, Try to make the numbers straight.
    The year and month are also both showed incorrectly now.
