    I'm just wondering which Skin you have on your DSTT and where you got it from?

    I'm planning on getting one from GBATemp.net or maybe I'll get one from Ndsthemes.com...I dont know and honestly haven't put thought into it until just now.

    P.S. How do you make skins? I've seen a few pics on other sites that I'd like to turn into skins. If theres a tutorial then please just link me.

    I make my own backgrounds using Photoshop. I'm too unbothered to do new buttons though.

    How do you make skins? Just remake/rename the images in the folder?

    I'm using this one:

    Give you three guesses where I got it. (Hint: click the image)

    To answer the second question: there's a quick-n-dirty breakdown of how a skin is put together in the FAQ sticky at the top of this forum. It doesn't handhold you through making a skin, but it tells you what each image in the /TTMenu/skins/default directory does. Once you know that, it doesn't take much to open them in Photoshop, make some changes, and then save them in Windows bitmap format.

    Well, you got an idea of what to do...kinda. Just look at the default skin folder and check what it's named. Then name your replacing image the same thing and put it in the default folder, overwriting the old image. Also make sure your images are in bitmap format (.bmp I think).

    Canada...?
    I would usually make my own skins but if I'm lazy I would download 'em. Sucks that Photoshop conversion (.psd>.bmp) always makes my colour of my art look funky :/. I made some strange abstract art for now.
