    4:5 (NOT 16:9!) FP skin?

    First, a disclaimer. I appologize if I missed something and my answer was just in a topic I missed. I have been with FP since the very begining and it has served me very well. Now, I'm trying to upgrade on a new install to a newer version of FP (1.0.9). I'm running in 800x600 on an 8" lilliput touchscreen, which is 4x5.

    I've tried several skins (including 800x600 skins), and manually adjusted the height and width of the FP window to the correct size, but I still haven't actually found anything that is 4x5! Even the 800x600 screens are 'stretched' to fit a 7" 16x9 screen properly, and look like crap in 4x5.

    Does anybody know of a simple work-around for 1.0.9 or 1.0.10, or a descent looking skin that is actually designed for 4x5?

    Thanks for your help, and again appologies if I have missed something.

    Frigor,
    Thanks for taking the time to respond. I'd also like to say that so far that your skin has looked the best and been the easiest to navigate. I have also tried the above skin. Although the aspect ration is right, for whatever reason I find it very difficult to navigate (that is, for me it seems to require a lot of attention) atleast as compared to yours and the standard skin.

    Perhaps I'm asking too much and should, if it matters that much, try to figure this whole skinning business out!

    Again, thanks for your response.

    I think that's the best route- I do like your skin a lot. I've downloaded the PSD files and am tweaking :-)

    Thanks for the great skin and the kindness to share!
