Creating Custom Skins

Feb 21, 2011 at 12:16 AM

Hello guys,

 

I'm having some difficult to create a custom skin.

What should I do? Is there any tutorials available?

I google'd it and I found a discussion in the other website, which is no longer available, so I couldnt see the content.

The following guide will show you how to compile and build a custom skin file for Neoforce Controls framework.

1. Download and extract the source files.

2. Navigate to {EXTRACTED_FOLDER}\Neoforce\Source

3. Open the Neoforce.sln or Neoforce360.sln solution file.

4. Navigate to the Skins & SkinsContent projects within the solution.  There you will find all the original files you need to edit or replace to create your own custom skin.

5. Once you are ready to finalize your skin Build the Skins project.

6. Navigate to {EXTRACTED_FOLDER}\Neoforce\Source\Skins\Bin\x86\ and execute TomShane.Neoforce.Skins.exe

7. Once the program finishes and closes you can find your newly created Skin file in {EXTRACTED_FOLDER}\Neoforce\Skins\ under the name you decided to use for it.
