    Easiest way is to have a look at the image files in the default skin. All the bits in there are what you will need. You will see that there are 4 images for each particular bit. There will be a Down, Empty, Off and On. These will be shown when clicking, as a blank when no icons, normal, and when moused-over in that order. The "Down" is optional, however I feel that it gives a nice, non-static effect

    Once you have your new images all set up, you will then need to define which bits are where, which is done in the .skin file. By far the easiest way is to copy the ones for the Default skin, and just change the x,y,w,h values for each "button" or section. You can do this quite easily using Photoshop and dragging a selection box round the relevent bit, and going to "Transform Selection", then it will show you the x,y co-ordinates of the top left corner, as well as the w and h values, which is all you need to define for the skin.

    There are a few bits like the mixer which have x,y,w,h,x1,y1,w1,h1 etc, which will be two "bits" of the one part. For example, in the mixer screen, one of the xywh sets does the "mouseover" (which is generally the bigger area) and the other does the "slider" part. That might be the most difficult bit to do!!

    Once you get the hang of what you're doing, it's pretty easy. If you get stuck, put a post up here with your image file and your .skin file, and someone should be able to take a look and point you in the right direction

    also I use Destinator, could not a skin be "studied " that can integrate Destinator inside of Mediacar?
    Do I intend to say guy the discourse " Map-point" already' present in Mediacar?
    Make to know me!
