    Here is my latest skin, the Windows Vista EZ4 Edition. It's only for the NDS loader. Hope you enjoy it [​IMG].

    Update 7/8 #2
    I promise you that this will be the last update for this skin. I made the window a lot nicer.

    Update 7/8
    Made the selection bar a little nicer. Also changed the background colour.

    Cool. I had been thinking about making one, but I never used Vista so I don't have any reference.

    No modifications for the GBA portion? I'll use it if you can skin a GBA version as well, because I like things to match.

    That really is super nice. By far the nicest skin I've seen yet.

    Thanks for the feedback guys. I might skin the GBA loader. So stay tuned for that.

    He can't do that, I've made one and am heavily revising it for the EZ competition [​IMG]

    After seeing his Vista skin, I still have more work to do, lol. OS X doesn't quite have the rich colors or finder transparencies that make this Vista skin look cool. OS X is pretty much just blue, white and gray.

    I know it hasn't been a day yet, but what can I say, I'm a perfectionist.

    How do you make these skins...

    Ok, I have some grphic knowledge, i have the compiler and all, but when i make my own or edit an existing one, it will never load. It just shows blank. Even if i only edit one file? anyone have the exact specs. file size/resolution/demtions/depth ect.. so i can see if i am saving it wrong..

    a photoshop template would be great.

    I didn't make those skins, ChaosTheorySD did. I've only made the ez4Dreamcast, and this skin for EZ4. I've also made the ezOS X and ezDreamcast for the EZ3. [​IMG]

    Yeah, that was me actually. Thanks though. [​IMG]


    And I had that problem for awhile too, zone97. For some reason, the new file I made wouldn't work. like CWar suggest, the best idea is to just draw directly on top of the old file.

    I did this, I think its my save step thats changing the file. In photoshop. If i save it after editing it may want to save in PSD format. I then have to do a save as, then select JPG. At max resolution (12 i belive) could that be the issue, should i be saving save as for the web. and then use JPG?

    When saving as jpg, always use save for web.

    I'm sorry, I don't feel comfortable with sharing the psd file. I can however, give you the psd file of the template below if you want.
