    because there a bunch of images in that skin that are 24 bit, not 16bit like its supposed to be, lol.

    you could use GIMP =) to fix the individual pieces, or throw the whole theme through dan taylors ak2 editor to get the correct properties. then it should work right

    I'd use something better than the AK2 Edit...

    Photoshop if you've got it... otherwise Paint.NET has it as well I think, or GIMP if that's your thing.



    AK2 Edit will convert 16bit to 16bit (what you DON'T want to do) distorting the image.
    It also adds artifacts due to the method of conversion.

    IMO AK2 Edit does a little bit better at blending gradients, but it's not worth the artifacts.
