Mxm Skinner V5.0
Posted 09 November 2003 - 08:51 PM
i am making a skin with mxm5.0 (obviously if im posting here...) and under the configuration menu i set my menu boxes to the color i want them to be (white with red and black text) and then when im actually creating the skin and i go down and click on the create game list (mxm menu) button it only allows me to draw in black boxes,... i can change the color of the text but not the boxes themselves,.. wut am i doing wrong?

If you want a box, you can draw one, then draw a menu over it.
I just put black there because it is the default screen color.

now i am still having a problem getting the skin to work, tho...
i read the mxm users guide on how to put a skin in the xml, and im trying to do it, but it just is not working for me,... i am editing the xml directly bc i dont have the .net 1.1 and i dont feel like waiting 2hrs to download it with my 56k..... anyways i made a subfolder with my skin as the only item in it as of now,... this is what it looks like
i am slightly confused, so i dont know if i need all of those dir's but i put them there just in case,.... any help on this would be appreciated,....
p.s. im begining to love this mxm thing,.... ive had evox for a long time now, and there is just so much more that you can do with mxm,... i just need to learn all over again, anyways... thanks in advance
edit: there is backslashes in my actual xml, but for somereason x-s takes them out.... i put them in as (backslash) sorry it looks all goofy now....

Look at this site on how to "install" skins (you only need to copy the folder over)
All you need to do is specify a skinspath (Default, I think, is c:Skins)
And put your skin folder in there.

ok, i have a cache_menu.xml and a mxm.xml
in my mxm.xml i have:
then in my cache_menu.xml i have:
now the funny part is, about 1 out of every 15 times i start my xbox it loads up my created skin (deathbloodandrobots) but the other 14 times it does a bunch of color variations of this other skin that came with mxm i think its called simplicity remixed, im not sure
p.s. deathbloodandrobots is a skin i created in mxmskinner, but all credit goes to someone else on it, im not sure who but it was orignally a evo-x skin that i really liked and just stole the .jpgs from....
edit: also, is there a way to make images opaque? i.e. ICO-Media images transparent over your original skin sorta thing?

To select a skin:
Press Y (in mxm)
Go to configuration
Skins or something, and select a skin
By default mxm has it set to random, that's why you see random skins.
As for the transparency, not yet. However, BJ is working on a way to set any image transparent. Actually, working on a way to use a grayscale image as an alpha channel for another image. If that makes sense. lol

I tried, but fitting everything on 800x600 wasn't working. Because the screen's size itself is 640x480.
So if you switch to 1024x768 all of it should show up.

Then create an image element in the "load" screen, selecting the GameIcon resource.

I was almost done and for some reason I hit the stop video button (when no video was playing) and the program closed on me before I saved. You should make the button disabled until a video is actual running.
