Do you have source files for the home screen? I want to "port" that look to shade. Especially this view:

fr500: I am not sure how accurately I will actually be able to reproduce that specific view. I do have a few ideas as to how to recreate the wave effect but I don't think I have enough skill for it to fairly reflect what Phyek had originally intended.

Another butchered view complete though:

Thank you, the waves...maybe something similar to XMB PS3 waves, just two or three semitransparent waves running at different speeds should do it, but that would go later now if you could do the horizontal purple-ish glow I'd be the happiest guy in the forum Tongue

I'll give this psd a look too

I disagree, I think you have done a great job. Any skinner who was ever interested in this concept would be foolish not to jump on this resource, or even better, work with you.


- ZombieRobot - 2011-01-23 03:53

might take a look at these good job


- Japaja - 2011-01-23 06:09

You are doing a great job with these PSD it's not butchered, looks great. Would be sad though if u do all this work and nobody jumps in to make a skin. :/

What's the font? Great job keep it up I'm guessing it's a Microsoft font?


- Dvorac - 2011-01-23 07:37

The font is Helvetica Neue. Thank you for the compliments everyone; however, I don't deserve them, phyek does.

Lol I just logged on to ask what font was that Big Grin thank you

Shade was originally designed with that font, but its not open source. Sad


- fr500 - 2011-01-23 10:25

Ok fellas, bear in mind i'm very very noob and this is just another home screen for shade.

Different font of course and it's just a WIP

How can I make a label have 2 colors? like on the mockup the time is white and duration is blue


- ZombieRobot - 2011-01-23 10:42

This whole font song and dance has to be the worst thing about skinning for me but its got to be done. it drives me up the wall Rofl

Maybe try using Raleway, it's free if you redistribute the license with it.

Why don't you rename the fonts and strip the internal names. High logic font creator is an amazing app especially for swapping out lower case for all caps. It would be beneficial if fonts were packed along with textures, as discussed many times before. The only true problem with licensed fonts is not being able to get your skin into the repo. I think getting the right font is so important and worth the effort and risk to use the best, look at what aeon did.
