    Default [Request] - Howto - Create a Design for SPBShell

    hey guys,

    i need help to make a custom design for SPBShell, i wanna make a custom maemo design :P
    so the graphics are no problem for me, cauze im a designer, i need only a nice tutorial from a pro, howto:

    1. extract the .dat files clearly and repack with password
    2. design i.e. a custom music player, menu bar, calendar widget, clock widget and many more
    3. which programm will i need to convert the files to .rle etc
    4. which are the best programs to do all this (design (im using photoshop), modding etc)

    edit.

    i see i must edit the menu layer and the homescreen a little bit, so if anyone can help me to do this, write me a pm, i will create all the graphics, but i need a professionell modder to create this i.e.:

    (its possible to edit the carossel to create this one?)


    (its possible to edit the menu layer to create this one?)


    i think i will add only a landscape option, so its better i think.

    edit2.

    its possible to create a new i.e. contact layer etc? cauze i dont like the standard layer, i.e. the background, mouseover effect etc)

    sorry for my bad english,
    Thanks

    you can just ask in the modding spb section rather to open a new topic..

    Anyway password to extract & repack is b0fm18zq

    to convert png to rle, you can use png2skin.exe

    i use photoshop & gimp for designs

    you can download skins.zip somewhere in the modding spb thread for original pngs

    hope this helps & goodluck on your spb modding

    Actually this would be a nice thread for wanna be SPB modders to start of so that people asking how to start in the modding thread will decrease and so that good answers wouldn't be drowned by all the mods
