This removes what you asked only in the startup screen.
If you want to remove the background throughout the skin, that's a different and bigger story!

Also remove "<include>OverlayFull</include>" if you want only to see black.

I've already added more levels of transparency down to 0% in the latest version on Github:

https://github.com/Tgxcorporation/skin.c...its/master

This option will be available in the next official release.

Thanks

I checked out that link. Im going to edit the xml myself and lower the transparency. Thank you so much for the valuable info. I do have 1 more question for you. What would need to be edited to make the border around the icons smaller as well as the bottomn icon label border. Thanks again!!

Hi TGX - Where can you find the startup.png file?

How do I go about changing the file for my own one?

Hi I posted this already in your main skin topic. Sorry to repeat but thought maybe this was the right place. I want to make the startup screen stay for a certain length of time without having to set it in the settings How can I do that?
