So, I've decided to spend some of my free time fixing the medals a bit. Not all of them though, only those that had a shadow effect that doesn't blend well with the Dark skin on gbatemp.
Example:
OLD:

NEW:

Here's the download link:

Some of you might not like this change, so I've added a poll so you could decide if it's a good idea to implement these into the forum.

EDIT: Added some more lighting to them to make them look more "modern". Here's the sprite sheet for tj_cool.

Preferably both should exist. These fixed ones you've made work better with the darker theme, but if you use the lighter theme then all of a sudden the shadow effects go missing.

Hypothetically speaking, I could just change the shadow to a black-grey color at 20% opacity that will work on both, but that will require the medals to be in .png format since .gif doesn't support transparency. I don't know if the file size difference will affect the performance of the site but that's not my call.

They're probably gifs to make the file size smaller. Not sure how much "heavier" they would be as png. Ideally they should all be combined in one image so they can be CSS sprited.

Or click the "Tempstyle" link in the bottom left corner.
Damn, how could I've missed this?

Got it. Working on that right now.

Actually, I almost forgot that both reporter medals have an easter egg, maybe that's why? Those will have to stay the way they are.
