    Its a bit surprising because there might be different buttons for example, that need to be skinned, but if it's just like two backgrounds, and they both have skinning support, it is quite likely you could get it working.

    This isn't really accurate.

    If you just use an R4/M3SS skin, you're missing alot of the graphical components present in the DSTT's skinning system, and you end up with a half-assed looking setup.

    not ture ! not half-assed at all
    mine just looks the same as my r4!

    you just rename them form

    r4 skin (logo ) change to bgup top screen
    r4 skin (icons) or (bckgrd_2) or (bckgrd_2) change to bgdown i did it with bckgrd_2 bottom screen
    but you can change any of the 4 r4 skins to go in you top or bottom screen



    then copy and paste bgup & bgdown them in to your skins file on you dstt!, when asked if you want to replace the files just click yes
    job done
    good luck
    let me know how you get on please

    any probs let me know!

    The DSTT uses 42 images in its skin, you gave it 2.

    Tell me how thats not "half-assed".

    This is true.

    Plus some skins have that rectangle in the middle because that's where the game picture is on. It'll look EH.

    But I sorta agree though. If you just use one type of buttons/icon things then you're pretty much safe as you wont likely change it. But the thing is that the scroll bar might look screwed up because you didnt change that skin for that.

    You also have to change the hex codes in the skin.ini file, so that the coulours of everything look out of place.
    Otherwise, this is half assed indeed.
    Besides, don't most of the background pics for R4 have R4, or a picture of an R4 SOMEWHERE in the background? I've noticed that a LOT.

    you sir are a twat!

    have you even tryed it?

    twat? that's just cruel.
    And yes, I have tried it, and some (if not, many) backgrounds conflict with the DSTT's text. why? because the background and the text are the SAME COLOUR!

    Also:
    The scrollbar, as well as many various buttons in the DSTT kernel don't exactly look too good with various R4 backgrounds.

    All you did is figure out how to rename an image. GOOD JOB SIR, YOU'RE A GENIUS.

    If thats all the effort you put into it, most skins will look like shit. That is a fact.

    I don't know why you keep trying to defend your obviously flawed point.

    lol.
    You just flamed Urza.

    If you wanted to help n00bz find skins for their DSTTs, you could have either made your own, or linked to other websites and/or threads.

    For your information Mr. "I don't give up and will defend my patented 3 second skin porting technique to the death", I do in fact own a DSTT, and that sticky called the "DSTT FAQ" - complete with skinning guide - was put together by me.

    This is nothing however compared to the advantage I possess by having eyes; which you must possibly not if you think simply swapping out the background images from another theme looks like anything but the creations of a manic 8 year old having a seizure on the library's public terminal.
