Nasty bug. Thanks to thieves like us for the heads up.
@all : i added a sample skin now in the zip, so you can study how a standard skin is done. Be careful at system's panels.
It's not for the fun that ez team has made them in full screen (256x192) with transparency. If you don't use that size, ESF center the picture with the background.
It's my last advice. Now see you all at the end of my holidays !
Compiled in RN93 2.0.1 is out
Also Env your description on filetrip really creeped me out but the previews hadnt been loaded yet so I was sure I wouldnt have touched it but the previews make it look nice.
Edited First post and if 5 days counts as almost over then it is almost over but its five whole days and school starts two days after the contest ends which sucks because I wont be able to use the Ez Flash during school that much.
Hi env and thanks for your entry.
You make me found a bug in the kernel 3.0ob1 ! thanks for that.
In fact, when a splash ani is compiled with the waitforterminate=1 in splash.ini, the kernel hangs at start !
I reported at once this bug to the team, so don't worry about that, your animation is correct (tested it under moonshell 2.10).
Also, told to other judges this bug to not penalize you and anyone who as done the same in their splash animation.
Just a little remark to your skin, don't know if it's meant to be like that, but in single line mode (small icon mode), i have different template for the FL_Single_Icon_NDSROM.png and FL_Single_Icon_GBA.png than in double line mode (big icon mode).
/me gone on holidays now ...
Ps : i added some more tips for ADVANCED skinners only in my first post.
mbmax what do you mean by Your skin got wrong names. Read again the skin contest post.
QUOTE(FAST6191 @ Jul 10 2010, 11:30 PM)  Skin making is covered in the tutorial but a full skin is a skin.dat, skin.ani, skin_bottom.bin and skin_up.bin
Omission of a skin.ani file will likely count against you (replace skin with your under chosen 8 letter name)
Love this skin, i have no way as of using it right now but it reminds me a lot of world of goo, very nice! (btw: my skin will be updated with the new buttons and more in line with the shutdown screen very shortly.)
the file that you want to replace is "progress_BootRom_bar.png" found in the \makeskin\template folder
it is only 1 pixel wide, however you can resize it in photoshop (or any other paint program to something like 100-200 pixels wide to make it easier to see what it will look like as the bar increases (eg. as the rom loads). just remember to resize it back to 1 pixel wide before you save it.
