hi wanted to know if there are any guide or something to create my own skin as they have long been trying and I can not get it to work, so I would be very helpful any help on this topic.

I would like to make a custom page in which I am partner, we kindly ask me or just help me dijesn what steps would have to take to do it safely.

Thanks and congratulations on the page, it's great
Don't know much about this, except that one of the first things you need to do is install the game's Resource Archiver.

Good luck with this.
muchas gracias por tu ayuda.

Hi reydarvi,
I was going to respond in more detail about skinning i.t.o usability, that is, where I would like to see buttons, which reduces mouse trawling from one end of the screen to the other. So, it is more on usability than actual skinning.

I am using the Blueu skin by Jaybee (I am not sure). I like the dark colours and also how the submenus (those that expand) look. Also the news channel on the left is good. The navigation buttons was problematic for me though; I did not like the idea of the forward (>) and back (<) buttons being separate from the Continue button. So, I moved them more to the right (see image below). On the original Blueue the > and < are on the extreme left, the Continue button on the extreme right. I would've like the > and > closer to the Continue button, but as it is shown here, it is fine.

Sure, there are skins combining the Continue, > and the < buttons like the Glass.2 skin by XeroX (see below, I tried to make the background grey, which messes the skin up though).

This skin would be ideal, except that it is a white background skin
which isn't good for the eyes. Also I don't like the yellow, and light blue for the news channel. If these colours could be changed, the buttons be moved more centrally, then the Glass.2 could be a winner for me. Still I prefer Blueue, though.

Sorry about the length of this post.

thank you very much, but is that really what I want to do, change the side buttons, put it all to my taste, but my problem is not so, that's why I would like a guide or some tips that should tell me in detail how do so.

Would it be too much to ask?

PS: My problem is I do not speak English and I have to use a translator for it, maybe that's why I do not write well, or answer things that make no sense, sorry
no one answers? I need Help
