    Well, this is a very simpe skin that I made

    [​IMG]

    I don't know that language, so I don't know the reason because the image doesn't work here, may be the forum scirpting...well, this is the link:

    if this still not working, try copy & past on a new window.

    I can see the image contreras if I right click on it and view it. When I scroll back to the forum it then shows in the posting. I think the problem has to do with the forum software and png images.

    However dbl clicking the link you gave produces an error msg that states "It is not allowed to access this file from extern sources".

    The skin looks nice. Where can one download it?

    hmmmmm, I thought skins didn't come about until 5.6.

    I?m gonna upload it at http://www.free-space.us/dreamweaver/do ... yeCandy.7z

    It contains the folder called "Classic" on the path:
    C:\Program files\Weather Watcher\Skins\Interface

    This skin is realy simple[8D]

    P.S.

    The problem with the images just dissapeared itself (I guesss)[:D]

    contreras when I try to access your link I get:

    Error:

    It is not allowed to access this file from extern sources

    Also what app will open the .7z file? Does WInZIP?

    yes, winzip does it

    if you're interested in the format(better than a normal zip), check this www.7-zip.org
    it is a project on surceforge.net for free.

    and, about the link, try copy & past...[:p]

    That face is pretty neat. It just needs a little tweaking to touch up the details.

    One that I would suggest is the SkinDesc description in skin.ini. I think it should say Skin by Contreras. [;)]</font id="size2">

    EdP, there is a transparent link near the bottom of the interface. Drag the interface around and you should see it. Also, the progress bar on the retrieval status window is all black.

    Unfortunately Weather Watcher doesn't support the use of PNG images. You will need to convert the icons to GIFs or JPGs. IrfanView does that well.

    By the way, good idea Mike

    It's special useful for beginners users.[:D]

    EdP, just create a normal zip, it must include the skin's folders(s): Forecasts &/or Icons &/or Interface , then rename the file with the extension .wws
    skin.zip ren skin.wws
    Then is WW's task.
