    This program has now been replaced by my considerably more compatible program DS Skin Maker.

    Visit DS Skin Maker to download and find out more.

    Epic! Now we can edit the buttons on Kaura to look better for the hex boot.

    You are awesome stormwave [​IMG]

    EDIT: I linked to this topic in the Kaura FAQ.

    I've just added a new release with some stuff I missed before releasing this. I'm sure there will be some bugs left in, I didn't have much time to test this thoroughly.

    Just wondering, but is it a bug that the Kaura mode has all of the opening/extracting as browse for folder and not file open, or am I just trying to open the skin the wrong way?

    Aye, in Kaura mode the program makes you pick the folder that the skin is in. Since the Kaura skins comprise not only of the skn file, but also the other files in the folder. I suppose I could have made it so you pick the skn file, and it justs finds the other files automatically, but I think this way works fine (if a little confusing at first). I could always change it if people don't like it this way.

    Saving is similar to the extracting, except it asks for a name (unless you've opened a file and not picked "Save As") and then makes a folder inside the chosen folder to place all of the skin files in.

    Lol I get it now. I was expecting it just to look at the .skn file, but this way probably works much better (though maybe just add a little note somewhere that says that, otherwise people might ask the same thing I did xD)

    Psh, photoshop is for nubs that can't use Paint (lol jk)!!!
    On the other hand, you could try GIMP instead (it is free afterall) and its pretty simple to understand.

    Update to version 0.5!
    This version adds:

    - TouchPod skinning support (not a requested feature, but I thought it might come in handy),.
    - A font generator for Sakura Mode. It's not perfect, but it gets the job done if you want to generate a quick font for the ScreenSaver etc.
    - Added an invisible signature into the empty file section of the Kaura SKN files, so I know which skins have been made by my program [​IMG]

    I've run out of ideas for now, so unless anyone wants to request any or notices any bugs, this'll be that last update for a bit. If anyone does want to request any changes or new features, I'll be happy to add them in.

    Aye, well in C#, my current favourite language [​IMG]

    For the invisible signature thing, that's the only way to make them anyways [​IMG]

    And I like C# too, it's good for if you just want to code Windows programs.

    I've uploaded a new version. I decided to try and centralise all of the M3 skins by allowing users to upload their own skins to a server. I also added a skin browser, so you can browse all of the skins.

    At the present moment there are no skins online, so if people could upload some skins it would be greatly appreciated [​IMG]

    Please give feedback on the new features, and any changes / new ideas that you would like.
