    I'm really having troubles with the skin maker. I will fiddle with it some more and try and get these from just pictures to actual skins....but man...it's resizing my buttons when I import'em into the skin maker...then they turn invisible as I resize or move'em, which makes it a royal pain to realign'em. Not bashing the program..just saying..I need some time to fiddle with it.

    SpeersSV, un-install the one you are using and grab the one on the website now, that one doesn't re-size the pics

    I finally figured it out. I DLed the newest skin maker(same one I had before)...and it was still resizing my junk. It's obvious to me now that it's because I had my screen set at about 1200x960 res...and the background image(800x600) was getting stretched to fit that...so after dropping my desktop to 800x600 I got it all find and dandy. The Nissan one should be done by tomorrow afternoon.

    What I'll prolly do is just trade out logos for other makes, and then adjust the colors for all the art for different car colors...hopefully I'll be able to pump out a gaggle of different makes and colors..but still keep the same skin overall.

    yes this is a good thing to remember. Do all your skins in max 800x600. I found anything bigger the background on a lower res will look really bad.
