    With no R4 or M3, I decided to do a skin anyways so here it is.

    The skin is very minimal and basic, which is the intention. Alternate logo screens are included incase they tickle your fancy.

    Please feel free to leave CONSTRUCTIVE criticism. Just saying "this sucks" does not help me do any better. Enjoy.

    Is this that skin you were talking about in #GBATemp.net?

    Yep. Not having an R4 or M3 means that I had to come seeking some info to make sure that I was indeed uploading files that would actually work. Chances are I might need to edit one or two things based on how it actually displays on the DS but I'm over all happy with it.

    One of the best R4/M3 skins I've seen in my time.
    You did a good job, especially considering you don't own either flashcart.

    I like the simplicity. Good job, and you shouldn't change anything. It looks fine the way it is.
    Other than that - I can't say much more.


    And Spikey loves his camera a little to much doesn't he [​IMG]

    Well, considering he doesn't own the carts, I demoed it for him. And while it's in the storage I figured I'd up it here to show people. If you don't like it I'll gladly remove it. [​IMG]

    Really nice skin. Simple but I like. If it's not too much to ask for maybe add some more colors (black)? Other than that... goodjob. [​IMG]

    I did think about multiple colours but to be honest, I don't like the thought of black (or white to nip that in the bud). Regardless, I did play around in photoshop.

    [​IMG]

    That would be the direction I'd take black in if I continued.

    This is a very nice skin. I've got a black minimalist skin on my Evo. So I've been looking for something like that for my R4. You did a good job.

    Thanks for your work.

    The only thing I would say is to give the outlines of the buttons a little bit more definition, they blend in with the background too much in my opinion...other than that, superb job!
