    How does one make a custom skin for ComicBookDS? I've got an interesting idea for myself, as long as its relatively easy to do.

    Its much more difficult than making a skin for a flash card menu because there's 20+ icons
    Also you can't use alpha transparency so its hard to make the icons look good against the background
    it took me about 4 hours total to finish it

    Update: The friendly guy, Francis Bonnin, posted some screenshots on his site (they're on 1st post)
    If there are people that don't use ComicBookDS, here's an incentive: hentai manga [​IMG]
    Now that I think about it, it should have been titled Rounded Rectangles

    Thanks for taking the time to make this. It looks much better than both the default skin and the Vista skin I usually use.
    I see what you mean about getting the icons to look good against the background, but I think you've done a pretty good job.

    I hope Francis implements alpha transparency and font customisiton in a future release of ComicBookDS, and switches to proper colour declaration in the theme ini file. When creating my Tango! skin I had no end of trouble getting the correct colours for the non-image portions of the skin.

    Shameless self-promotion here, but it's relevent.. my Tango! theme for ComicBookDS:

    Took me about two days to understand how the theme works and creation. Most of the time I was just stumped on my Photoshop didn't make the sprites transparent. (Turns out newer Photoshop versions have different transparency setups) Hopefully it'll be posted on the CBDS site. Enjoy everyone~
