Is there a way to do that?

like...

<background background.jpg
<position top = xxx>
</background>

I tried it and it didn't work, I'm new to skinning so I don't know much...

I'm putting my own pic into a skin I DLed, "Vista" by neverwill, but the pic is up too high, I would like to bring it down about 50 or so pixels...

Thanks for reading =)

I believe there should be a way to adjust it or change it all together. Is there a confg file for the skin if it is and you would open it with notepad and then either copy and paste it here or pm it to me I will look at it and see. I know you can change menu items in unleashx put i can remember what all you can do to individual skins

when you put the pic in there make sure its 640x480

If it is let me know I might see something I would have to try and i will pull my xbox out of the closet and give it a try

Yea I was using a huge ass pic, 1680x1050, it was being shrunk a lot I think... but I have 640x480 pics to use, I just don't know what to add to the skin.xml in order to move it around...

And actually I just used paint to get a new pic to fit in there, so really I guess I don't need to be able to move a pic up or down... sure it might be cool to know and might come in handy someday, but right now I think the easiest way for both of us is for me to use paint to do the adjustments.

If you still want to test it out, that's cool, but it's not needed. Thank you kindly for your help and generosity man. biggrin.gif I appreciate it.
