    I like it, Now if it weren't so dark...I would like it even more [​IMG]
    btw, Isn't the font color of the text on the game selection screen black?

    yeah, i noticed the font color being black after looking at a few screenshots of the interface, but i'm hoping that font color is a skinnable option too, i guess we'll have to wait and see.

    I'm working on a couple of "lighter" skins, but i favor dark stuff [​IMG]

    Nice skin, what picture is that?
    Unfortunately as of 1.05, the font is not skinnable

    Well, I didn't upload it anywhere yet, because when i made this skin I thought that we might be able to edit the font's color as part of the "skinning" process, but apparently you cant, so the game selection screen might be a little dark to display the titles clearly.

    I will upload it anyway, i will upload another skin too which i hope you will like ... as soon as i get back to my home (a few hours).

    EDIT: I found a copy of it on my laptop, here you go guys:

    Download Here

    thanks to mavis for hosting the skins and making it so easy to upload them.

    Please test it and tell me what you think.

    BTW: I dont have my R4 yet, so i cant really test this. I ordered mine last wed, and it's shipping got delayed or something i dunno, it's supposed to be shipping today.

    I'll upload my 2nd skin as soon as i get back home.

    Nice, just a little suggestion for the back_2 image. When you highlight a game/app etc. Then a box will come up in the lower screen, along with some information below it in thin black text.

    So there might be some difficulty to see that text unless you lighten it up a bit more around the middle.

    I tried to avoid using dark colors as much as possible, but it's really hard.

    since i dont have my R4 yet (winsunx delays), maybe some of you can try it out and tell me if it's really a big deal.

    Actually, it wasn't a big deal at all as I imagined it would be. Here's a pic
