    New to skinning...

    ...so please be patient with me

    So I am using RR skin editor and have created a basic skin with just the main menu off and main menu down screens.

    I saved it to see how it would look, but roadrunner says invalid skin...

    Any cliffs notes for a newbie?
    Thanks!

    not sure why its saying invalid skin, prob some bad info in the header of the file. Post your .skin file and ill take a look at it.

    A problem that I was having is that RR Skin editor was adding an extra .skin at the end of the file name. So it would read:

    Menu.skin.skin

    Also I don't know if it matters but try changing:

    MEDIACAR subaruoem Skin

    to

    MEDIACAR subaruoem.Skin

    Hi Sebberry,

    I think you will still need to identify the empty and on skins like so,

    MEDIACAR Skin
    MEDIACAR KPJ Skin
    Menu_Empty.jpg,Menu_Off.jpg,Menu_On.jpg,Menu_Down. jpg

    also I think you will have to lose the MAIN_ element. I think RR looks for Menu_xxx.skin to start. You may be able to change this, but I don't know how.

    Also if this doesn't work, check you have a general.ini in the directory where you have your skin.


    Good Luck

    yeah, you will have to list all of the state images like above, thats prob why its giveing you that error. If you dont want to create images for those states you can just point them to the same images. Like in my skins, the on state and down state use the same images. The nameing dosent matter, just has to be something there to point to.

    are you using the latest or recent version of the skin editor? I know older versions would keep adding Skin at the end, im using V0.1.003. I think you have to download this version from a thread in here somewhere, not sure if the latest version of the Skineditor comes with the current RR updates and whatnot.

    Do you have general.ini in the skin's folder ?
