    Really nice, but you should make some black bars ( or white, or a different color), lower their opacity and place them on top and on the bottom of the bottom background to make the text with the version number and the time more readable (status bars).

    Cheers for the feedback dude.. i did think about adding bars to the top and bottom, but to be honest i tried to hide the status bar text as much as i could on this one. I'll give it a try in the skin im doing at the moment, it might look better than i think [​IMG]

    edit: by the way.. can we attach files in this forum? If people want to use my skins i need to post a .rar with xml included [​IMG]

    Thought i'd add my second skin.. its not very creative, i just HAD to do it because its a passion of mine. I took salamence's idea on board and added status bars this time... Hope you like it [​IMG]

    Keep your eye open for more skins coming soon [​IMG] (i still need to know how to attach files should people want to use these [​IMG] )

    Don't worry you're not going crazy, this forum doesn't use attachments [​IMG] You can either submit your skin into GBATemp's download centre (see "downloads" on the top banner) or upload your files elsewhere to a site like megaupload. Whichever you choose you then post a link to the file in this thread.
