    There are 2 different skin maker/editors at the ak site link, use Dan Taylors editor, as it better than the other one, and rocks like Dokken in the '80's.
    To start off making a new skin, try using another skin as a template to edit to your liking.
    Heres teh wiki on making skins, if you hadnt seen it already

    Have you read this "how to?" Nothing there about "skinning" other than "coming soon".

    Rather, take a look at DiD's excellent guide (over at NDSthemes.com) to all the bits & pieces you'll need, some tips for color-picking (frickin' AK designers made black the transparency color...yeah, that's useful) as well as some helpful template files: DiD's Acekard 2 Theme requirements, template and more...

    From Where???
    only true black is. 1 hex off (which still looks black) is not transparent.

    *sigh* I know, I know...just a bit frustrated as a theme I put together has to go back to the drawing board as a ton of stuff that I thought wouldn't be transparent turned out to be. It's just be easier if Team AK had chosen "Magic Pink" instead.

    i was pointing to the wiki more for how to use gimp...but yeah, the skinning how-to is in dire need of attention. I nominate/volunteer YOU as the one to start to fill in the blanks, TraumaHound =)
