Updated: New skin pack

----------------

Here is the new skin pack - 22 skins altogether with their respective today themes. You can see that it is different from the previous design. this is because of video screen and it uses the same background as the dial screen so i can no longer 'fake' larger buttons. Also I have reworked the registry keys so now all the graphics are in \windows\ and phoneskin folder is no longer used.

You can install over the previous version - you'll probably find an empty phoneskin folder at the end of the exercise.

Dowload HERE | Mirror (Rapidshare) (i think my site might go down if bandwidth exceeded, file is 12mb)

Hi, like to say what a great ppc forum this is. Been browsing for a while but never posted. This is my first skin for HTC Hermes with video call button skinned. It's 90% finished, cannot find where the speed dial and history buttons are located to skin them. I was hoping if anyone can help me complete it.

I don't want to be greedy but is there any chance you could issue a black version?
I've got a Firefox Black today screen and the black bars go really well with the snakeskin on the dialler.
I guess I'd kinda like the same blue graphic but with a black surround.

Or perhaps you could provide some instruction on how to modify the existing .tsk's?

TIA, love the dialler skin by the way.

thanks NikLP :D

I have one more which isn't listed on my site, carbon extra black

http://www.zombienex..._hermes_wm5.zip

For tsks, i normally modify them with today theme editor like microsoft theme editor or McDeb thememaker. These are for wm2003 and below since they can't totally modify the the gradients of the top and bottom bars but they do a good job of replacing background image and setting colours for other elements.

Thanks! Really appreciate your comments. Yes i make these skins in my free time for myself mostly, then i thought i would share them with the community since they help me so much with my pda. Nobody pays me, its a hobby which i really enjoy. Never had much time for graphics before i took up skinning, thought it would be a good way to improve my graphic skills. Also i had this dormant portal laying around so i decided to use it as a skin download center.

how do I convert them to tsk's for the today screen though?



You can't, the background images have buttons on them. I've made the Tsk (landscape & portrait) and bundled with the phonepad. Its now a listed item on my site with instructions. You can download it here:

Yeah I found those already (thanks) - in my initial post, I was hoping to get the snake look (or the nice black one) with all-black bars etc, a la Firefox Black (here). That's why I wondered about adjusting the tsk file. As I have an M3100 you see, it looks better with the all black theme... :D

I see now - you just have to swap the images... i used McDeb Theme editor (sorry i don't know others that can do this)

In McDeb
You can extract the background images of the reptile or extrablack.
Save images to your computer

Open the firefox tsk
Load image, put in the image you just saved
Rename tsk
Output!

(erm.. i hope McDeb didn't alter any of the wm5 settings.. so assuming it didn't, should do the trick)

Hiya
Very nice work. Makes the phone look fantastic. Just goes to show what an artist can do with a few hours now if only T mobile would give you a job designing there skins.

Thanks

Uh, this didn't work. Don't ask me why, I went thru all the settings. But when I applied the the ExtraBlack picture to the FirefoxBlack2 task and uploaded it, the top and bottom bars were still grey. I'm confused now...!
