OOO my god how I create new skins!

Sorry!

follow this:

It's simple and having few simple steps:

1. run cmd.exe from Tools folder.

2. execute XSkinMaker.exe command and you'll see this text:

Your path to XWindows Dock folderTools>XSkinMaker.exe

XSkin Maker ver. 2.5

Use: XSkinMaker [Options] [Config] [Skin FileName]

Options:

/u - unzip skin file

Config:

DrawAs=strech or tile

Description=?

LeftBorder=?

MiddleBorder=?

RightBorder=?

Break=?

Close=?

OpenFolder=?

Indicator=?

StackOff=?

StackOn=?

Folder=?

ControlPanel=?

MyComputer=?

Recycler=?

RecyclerFull=?

Unknow=?

Poof=?

3. Create all images and place it to this folder.

4. Give them names as in Config.txt (or use your own names *will need to change Config.txt)

5. Execute this command:

Your path to XWindows Dock folderTools>XSkinMaker.exe Config.txt SkinName

where SkinName — your custom skin name and you will see packed skin in the same folder.

Good luck!

An easy way to make a skin is to go into C:Program FilesXWindows DockSkinsCurrent

copy all the pictures and paste them into C:Program FilesXWindows DockSkinsTools

Edit these icons in the tools folder and then after editing them open the Config file and

name the theme,

now highlight all the things in the folder but XSkinMaker and drag them on top of XSkinMaker

and a file should apear with a random name, change the name 2 what u named the skin and

right click and cut it

now go paste it into the C:Program FilesXWindowsDock5.2.3Skins folder

Here r some requests, (probaly been posted b4 tho) :

- taller dock background, when u make the icon size larger the

dock small and looks weird.

- fixed magnification, make it not scrunch the reflection

- icons, ive noticed they get scrunched a bit 2, maybe just bcuz

my icons r 512 x 512

- fix the dock from becoming more transparent when turning on

window reflection.

- option 2 change the pictures overlay in stacks,

hopefully i can see some of these in the future (: thanks

I fully agree with this. I want to use magnification, but the "scrunched mirror" makes me turn magnification off.

Reflections from windows works strange on my home and work desktops.

On my work PC it works perfectly, sometimes don't updates, but this's normally.

On my home PC reflections quite don't updates until I hold mouse over the dock.

Don't understand why.

Just experienced two bugs on the Stacks:

Number 1:

If you

a.) set custom icons on the files inside a stack (via right click -> edit), then

b.) change the size for stack-icons (in the XWD-Settings), you will have the

Result: all customized icons are gone! :(

Number 2:

The captions of the files inside stacks are messed up for shortcut-files (*.lnk)

The Stack shows the filenames of the shortcuts target, instead of the filename of the shortcut itself. See the screenshot I attached...

So, i can't change the caption of these shortcuts, that sucks :D

btw: the new stack-animation is a big improvement!

Edit: as i am on the stacks, a suggestion:

Could you make the sorting by names go with the Windows default sorting? See screenshot No. 2. Thanks!

now with the new features, lets all start making 2D skins :D

And now some things I noticed that bugged me :P

The animation for grid is greatly improved (looks really smooth), but the icon size on start is the icon size of regular icons, so if you use icon zooming (also very nice) the icons start out too small when you activate grid.

The tooltip should fade out when you mouseover a separator... Not a big issue, just a thing I noticed.
