Well, the image needs to be much bigger (think computer wallpaper size) and preferably of better quality.

HyPeR,

Sorry mate, your wallpaper is still too small... I have to use a 755x200 source and your picture is only 640 pixels wide. So, I would have to stretch the picture and thus the skin wouldn't turn out very well.

Btw, I expect to have several more skins ready soon.

Hi weera, welcome to the forum.

Where is it you want to change the text colour?

Hi raven, thx.
I mean text colour in the commy display, like when I use your wood skin, the text colour is black while your tux2 skin has black text. (hope you know what I mean?)

Feel free to modify it. And if you find any colour codes that aren't already mapped out to point them out here so they can be added to the listing at a later date.

On a skin note the easiest skin to make is one based around the standard colours and just changing the pictures, much the same as the 9210. Otherwise things do become ludicrously complicated with all the colour options to track down and correct. As much as I'd like a skin with a dark background myself it's just not possible to do and make it look complete.

Just a word of caution to those of you who are making skins... Be careful when you edit the skin (SKN) file. I made a stupid mistake where I forgot to change the paths in the 'bitmap section' (forgot to replace some B's with C's...) and ended up killing my phone. And to add to the stupidity I didn't have a back-up ready. And if that wasn't enough, I discovered after doing a hard reset that the skin I was working so hard on (the one that rendered my commie useless) turned out rather badly...

Hmm, I think I left out the CBA panel when I made #5 in 'skinapptitle'. You can just use the CBA (200x200) from 'skincommandbar' and paste that into the source and then cut from point 92,0 so you get a part of the CBA at the end... Bah, forget it, I'll just upload it here.

You have to edit the .SKN file. It's explained at the end of SwitchBlade's tutorial.

I think I know what you mean. I've attached the modified orange.skn file to this post with white text in stead of black. Just go to C:\System\skins\0x101F8EDB and replace the orange.skn file with the one I've attached here (remember to unzip first), and reboot your Communicator.
