    Alright, I REALLY don't know where to put this, so I'll put it here...how do you create R4 DS skins? I downloaded a program, but its a .dll file, so I don't know how to open it and use it...I read some forums and they say that all it is is a picture, but what about the 3 buttons in the main menu? How does that work, and can any one help me?

    What program are you going to be using to make it?

    There's some great photoshop templates that have a layer showing you exactly which elements go where. As you said there is some actual fan made skin creator program but that puts in a watermark.... which will make any skin look naff in a second, especially when it is just a BMP picture file... hardly anything taxing.

    This is from that good R4 skin site, but i moved everything around a bit and it put it together in one file with the right separation. When it's a PSD all the elements are in different layers which you can hide/show when you need. When you export/splice the final thing you make sure all the layers are hidden, because the R4 itself adds on the features =)
