    It is? Guess they want you to use this topic to discuss in then [​IMG]
    *changes URL in download center*

    EDIT: I've seen that on most of the other stuff on the front page, you make a link saying "Discussion" leading to the news topic, maybe its an idea to do that to this topic too, since probably not everyone notices the little link saying "Read", and then they wonder why there's no link to a discussion topic [​IMG]

    Well ok!

    The only suggestion I had was to add e-book and GBA skinning screens.

    cant get this program to do anything in vista, running "elevated" or not. anyone got a FM for me to RTFM and im completely stupid & didnt see it linked anywhere, or is this just a software issue in the OS?

    edit: discovered that the process WAS running in the background after i tried clicking the program (i had three copies running when i just found this, heh), but there's still no "application" running that can be found from TaskMan, AltTab, minimize all my other active windows in case it was hiding out behind everything, nothing. doh [​IMG]

    Actually, i never even thought of that, but it's a good idea [​IMG]
    I'll look into it. GBA border will come first (maybe with possibility to use a tiled image as a border?).
    There's not really much to do about the GBA border though...

    I can say that running as adminitrator or setting compatibility mode doesn't seem to work at all. Oh wells.

    Ah, that's too bad. Well, i think most people still have XP (if they don't get Vista preinstalled that is) so it won't be a problem for the majority.

    yeah, that's what i meant by running the program "elevated"... eg: running as administrator.

    jdbye, im not trying to make a personal dig here but is it impossible for you to look at the code and see what is causing the window display to not function properly in vista? I'm not defending the OS at all, I know it has its issues... that said, I also don't have problems getting 99% of programs to run and it's a bit sad to see you write it off.

    would have liked to see the program in action, ah well.

    Any suggestions?

    lagman: did you extract the archive? It NEEDS the DLL, so if you don't extract both files in a directory, it won't work.
    If that's not the problem, then I'm not sure, but if you don't have SP2 and/or newest DirectX, that may be the problem. [​IMG]

    It doesn't work because... It's made in *cough*Game Maker*cough* [​IMG] Easiest way for me to do image manipulation.

    I used to use GM a lot, isn't GM7 Vista compatible?
    Also, does anyone know the gap (in pixels) between the two screens?

    Thanks

    I think I have found a bug

    I'm trying to create a theme, but every time I browse my PC to locate the image on my hard drive I get this error

    ERROR in
    action number 1
    of Draw Event
    for obj_1_scr1:
