  • Skin art for skin browser?

    i looked, but couldn't find it.

    How do I define the jpg to be used for the skin browser to show a preview of my skin. I tried setting RRconfig to folder.jpg and saving the preview as that, but it didn't work. Please help.

    You don't define the *.Jpg for skins. If you have a Skin_Browser.skin you need the S definition for the directory list and the J definition to display the preview. Skin_Browser will use the first Menu.skin jpg as display.

      ok, i had them saved as .bmps, so I changed the main off.bmp to main_off.jpg, and in skineditor changed the screen settings to use those images for RR, but it still didn't work.

      Here's my skin browser skin file:

      MEDIACAR Skin
      MEDIACAR Reenoip Skin
      main_off.jpg,main_off.jpg,main on.bmp,main down.bmp

      So it should be using the main_off.jpg to display its preview right?
      What am i doing wrong?

        You have a lot of stuff going on, that I can't figure out if it impacts (I'm not overly clever). Here's the text from my skin and I only have 4 buttons, one selects a new skin, next exists the skin, and the last 2 move the selection forward or back (to browse).

          I really can't figure this out. somebody please help!

            moved all the way to the bottom (but before END of course), it still isn't working.

            The skins that have been downloaded from the web are working fine, it's only the ones that I've made that won't show a preview.

              Your skin don't show up on any skin browser and neither does Triton, so maybe the cause is the same. Here's the skin browser from Alpine, pretty simple it look like. Maybe it will help figure things out.
              Maybe all the main menu graphics need to be JPG's, who knows..

                figured it out:

                RR is looking for the menu_off.jpg in the menu.skin. if it is named anything else, it will not show up. I will update this for my released skins.

                Good thing to know for all the other skinners out there. especially noobs.

                  EDIT: You found the solution faster than I could - congrats.

                  I down loaded avicted. Then I opened your menu.skin file, changed the text to read menu_off.jpg, menu_on.jpg, and menu_down.jpg. Then I used irfanview to convert the bmp files to jpg, i.e., main off.bmp converted to menu_off.jpg, main on.bmp to main_on.jpg, main down.bmp to main_down.jpg. Don't know why but it works. Here's your menu.skin file with the changes.

                    OK, we were all thinking you couldn't get your skin browser to show a preview not that your skin didn't show in a skin browser. oh well


                    I got sidetracked by the route the first replies were going in. Should have read your OP slower.
