    In order to use this software you need .Net 2.0, .Net 3.0 or .Net 3.5

    A while ago I created a program for the R4/M3 community, this program allows you to preview your skin. You can also edit the theme.ini file, take screenshots...

    Screenshot:

    The software is in Dutch and English. (Using the MicroSE MLI system)
    Release notes version 0.0.2.6
    [new] Switched "Option Strict" to on. No more incorrect type casting, and such.
    [removed] Reload from the Mode menu. (No longer needed)
    [changed] The way the form is drawn. Fully GDI+ for the screens now.
    [changed] Changes from the newest version of the .MSE Framework have been applied.
    [changed] You can no longer take a screenshot whenever the window is (partly) hidden.

    An (amusing) tutorial:

    Yep, you can use it to previeuw and save your skins (to anywhere you like, including your MicroSD [​IMG])The only thing in the skin-making process it doesn't do is the creation of the graphics. You'll need a different program for that. (Photoshop, Paint.Net, Paint Shop Pro, Gimp, Paint, etc)

    Futere development plans include:
    - An advanced skin browser, this might be a seperate program.
    - Rewrite of the drawing part of the screens. I'm still not happy with the current way.
    - Maybe opening the source of the program (except the .MSE Framework)
    - Maybe the ability to draw th images.

    Nice, I was thinking of doing a similar program for Mac OS X. I've got an R4 myself and wanted an easy Skin Maker [​IMG]

    New version, 0.0.2.9:
    [new] The ability to save directly to the MicroSD.
    [changed] You can now create screenshots even when the window isn't fully visible.
    [changed] Updated the .MSE Framework.

    From now on, the program is build with Visual Studio 2008 (targetting .Net 2.0) so you don't need .Net 3.5. However I do recommend that you install it. (Search the Microsoft site for a link)

    You can download it through 3 ways:
    1. Gbatemp.net's download section: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?download=1380
    2. My site's download section: http://microse.mihopa.net/downloads/?snm=dsskin
    Or 3. With my newest program, MicroSE Connect (download http://microse.mihopa.net/downloads/?snm=connect)

    No problem, I love to write. And it doesn't matter to me if it's program code or normal text. [​IMG]
