    Hey everybody [​IMG]

    Cool site, my first post here, recently got my girlfriend a DS with some games, decided I liked the DS so got myself one too, and then yah got 2 x M3 DS Real Cards [​IMG]

    Both of us are in design professionally and would like to make our own skins...

    Is there a template Photoshop PSD that we could use as a base, anything like that or do we kinda just need to work from a downloaded skin and sift through all the slices?

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Thanks!

    There is not much point, seeing as the firmware is getting redone in just 2 days. The current firmware is relatively frustrating to skin, because only .bmp's can be used. The new firmware will have much more flexible skinning ability's due to .png support, including transparencies. [​IMG]

    just grab the images from the skin1 or skin2 folder in your system folder.

    but skinning right now would be quite useless, a whole new firmware with different layout is coming in a few days.

    Ah right is this Sakura?

    Cool i'll wait for that then, yeah wasn't too excited about having to use bmp's ... Just not crazy about the current templates I have on the card, especially with the default typeface [​IMG]

    You can download more skins anyway. You should be able to find heaps right here on this site. [​IMG]

    Thats good, some new skinners. If you want a template just download a skin and edit it to your liking.

    I only just started skinning but mine aren't that good, but i'm sure yours will because your a pro designer.
