INCLUDES Apple, Crimson, Estate Blue, Flammeous, Greenish Slategrey, Grivelin, Indian Red, Mediterranean Blue, Mountain Blue, Mustard, Olive, OliveDrab, Orange, Pinkie, Salmon, Sea Green, Slateblue, Slategrey, Teal and Viridian.

----------------------------

This is not really a original skin. I just tweaked the Darker and the Pop one the way I like just for private use. As long as some people could find it useful, I uploaded it.

I created 6 ones with different colors: Olive, Crimson, Salmon, Teal, Apple and Dark Orange

This is how Olive looks:

FIRST EDIT:

Problems fixed and new colours added. New download link: http://www.mediafire.com/?rm2ujxa3x3j8nn2

Important: be aware that 'Dark Pop Basic' won't work as a skin. But if you want to use your own colour open it with WordPad and replace the word 'CHOSEN-COLOUR' with the your own colour RGB code  ;)

SECOND EDIT:

More problems fixed. I checked and everything seems OK. This is the good one (I hope  ;D): http://www.mediafire.com/?7beowhi96yfi97s

Some flat versions. Download link: http://www.mediafire.com/?18ka1d827njgho8

(This zip file include the previous non flat ones too).

Really nice work, Greb  :)

I love darker skins, including the original Dark and Pop Pink ones, which seems to be the most productive skins on the forum  ;) Thanks V4lve and Rotem by the way  :) This work reminds me the story of OrB's first skin that already have a lot of devoted users  :)

I like all 4 new variants and I think you should include screenshots for all of them in the topic.

IMHO, the skins look very professional and it seems that even slightly better than the original ones. (But maybe it's just an optical illusion  ;) ) What's more important, users who were hard to decide on Pop Pink or Dark skin have another headache  8)
I wish MB users had more such a 'problems'  :)

Thank you very much and welcome aboard  :D

I hope You create some more skins and Steven includes them to the MB installer so that MB could gain more and more pleased users, who haven't visited the forum yet.
It's really cool that all the skins are distributed with the installer and users have a wider range of options  :)

I like the crimson one. definitely looks professional.

Why not change the color of the ticks in check boxes? [check Check Boxes on skinning guide - part two for the elements]
The location box [in the edit screen>properties] is locked but uses a different color then other locked text boxes? [don't mind if it's intended but if it's not check Controls.LockedInputControl.Default]
And the arrows are missing from the thumb buttons of the scroll bars, but are visible in the menus scroll bars?

Thanks for sharing,
Rotem

Thanks, I'll check it.

With regard to the arrows, you're right. I don't use them so I didn't realize. But it's quite weird since the four skins are the same and only the colour has been changed...  ???

Well, I'll see it tomorrow.

check "Panel.ScrollBarThumb.Default" bg="70,70,70" bg2="60,60,60" fg="993,7,42"
That extra 9 there is the problem.

I shortened the entries a bit, but the list is still quite long. I was switching through all 4 colour variants while testing, so I decided not to remove any single entry. In fact, the bugs are quite easy to fix:
all you need is to search the skin files for numbers: 990, 993 and 9150 and replace it with the proper numbers from 0 to 255.

Well, the arrows' issue and the preferences checkboxes are fixed  :)

The new link for the skins is in the the first post of the thread.

Thanks for the help.

Greb, you did it ! I can't see any error in the log with the new skins. Thanks  :)

The problem is that it seems that the colour change is invisible on the Skin when Darker Pop Basic, Dark Orange or Olive is used (it isn't different from the background).

The other Dark Pop Skins work as expected though.

BTW, make sure to update the year at the splash screen  :)

  • Guest
Damn! you fix a problem and something breaks elsewhere!  ;D

Well, I updated the links. Every skin seems to work OK now.

The 'Basic' one is not supposed to be used as a skin. Problem with the first skins was originated 'cause I replaced the RGB code '0,90,90' (blue teal) with the other colours, what affected the '90,90,90' grey. So I put the word 'CHOSEN-COLOUR' instead. In case somebody wants to personalize the skin with his favourite colour, he only has to open the 'basic' one with WordPad and to replace this word with the RGB code. No errors that way.


EDIT

BTW, I had some time and made quickly some flat versions I added. I just like this ones sometimes.

I added three more colours, flat and normal versions. The links with the whole pack is at the top of the thread.

(I realized now that Coral and Salmon looks definitely similar. But I feel too lazy now to choose now one of them!)

Slategrey



Coral



Estate Blue

Greb, could you release Tweaked Dark Skins as Dependent Skins so that the marked colours could be used with different skin files  ???

When skin is dependent one all you need to do to make it work with another skin is to change the name
Code
<root dependsOn="INSERT A SKIN NAME HERE">
on the new skin file. I showed how it works in the Pop Pink topic.

Hi

I picked some more nice colours (I really LOVE one app called ColourSchemer) and even made a quick splash screen. I was thinking in opening a new thread and uploading them as a pack.

But it's not question of opening a new thread for every change, and what you were talking about could mean another new change. I'm not going to invert too much work in this skins, but I'll check what you were talking in order to see if I can adapt them quickly. But probably not in the following days. Anyway, it's in the task list for the next week-two weeks.

EDIT The links has been updated. When I have some time I'll check the issue with the dependent skins.

I'd really like to try these colour choices with other skin files (Asylum White for example 8)). Are you going to make the skins dependent  ??? The bug you reported on dependent skins misbehaviour have already been fixed in one of latest development builds of MB  :)

  • Guest
Yeap, that's the idea.

But the bug hasn't been still fixed. As long as I know, code is done, but it hasn't been released by now. Last beta is 4083, several days ago, so I'll do it as soon as the new beta appears (well, probably some days later  ;D).
