    Hey guys! I'm happy to announce that my site is now accepting R4/M3 skin uploads!

    I paid a coder to do this custom script for me, so I hope it gets some use. I thought it would be better to have a place for everyone to upload their skins besides those stupid 'free upload' sites ... [​IMG]

    Here is the address:


    Upload your skins here!


    You must upload a preview image with your rar/zip file, if you don't upload both at the same time, the script will display an error message. When the files are uploaded, the complete URLs for each file will be displayed, and it will also display a line of vBulletin code that you can just copy and paste into a post here at GBAtemp that will show your preview image as a link to download the skin. Very simple!!

    Keep those skins coming, guys! [​IMG]

    Like I explained in the first post, once they're uploaded it will show you the complete URL for both the preview image and the rar/zip. Very simple. [​IMG]

    Thank you! This is so awesome!

    I'll upload all my skins on it as soon as i get back home.

    BTW: I've just tested it with one of my skins, the script should rename files that are uploaded with a space in their file name, because the links that are given out wont work unless they have no space.

    That's true, good point!

    Unfortunately I've already paid the coder and the contract is complete - how would I add that functionality to the script?

    alright, try this:

    $filename = preg_replace("/s/e" , "_" , strtolower($filename));

    or maybe something more like this:

    $filename = ereg_replace(" ", "_", $filename);

    you should use either one of those functions. preg_replace() or ereg_replace() should both work.

    this should replace spaces with underscores in uploaded file names


    if you still dont know exactly where to edit or add this code, try reading this:

    http://www.php.net/ereg_replace

    http://www.php.net/preg_replace

    or send me the php file and i'll be happy to try and fix it for you.

    Hey man, thanks for your help!! I contacted the coder who made the script and he's fixing it himself (which he didn't have to do, he's just being really cool about it) so it should be fixed very soon! [​IMG]

    edit: the problem is fixed, and the script is 100% operational! Get those uploads going!!! [​IMG]

    I guess what I meant was... are we gonna have one unified section to post all our skins and not have them spread over 50 topics? Looks this is just for hosting the skins. Are you gonn ahave them on your site?

    Well, you can brwose the skins here http://www.mavisxp.com/r4/skins/ ... If someone wants to make a script to display them all on a page as images that can be clicked (to download the accompanying zip/rar), go for it! [​IMG]

    mavis, can you delete both skins that i uploaded and leave the one that says "final" in it, they were both WIP versions of the skins (upped them by mistake, sorry)

    in short, leave just this one "1168226463_EverGreen_By_DiGiTaL_SiN_final.zip"

    Nice. I'm not a Star Trek fan, but props for the effort it took to detail that. Looks good. [​IMG]

    looks cool just keep in mind the r4 logo at the top and time overlay on the bottom, you will probably have to build ur skin around that.
    post when finished.
