View Full Version : Gaming Skin

18 Apr 2006, 03:30
Hey, this is my first skin that I completed. I started skinning yesterday. :cool:

Well, basicly we just got VB for my site and I was bored so I decided to begin skinning. After just messing around I decided to make a skin, got half done and quit. Then I got bored again and made this one.

Please C&C. I really want to improve. Thanks ;)


Thanks for the sets and I hope it is alright for me to have used them.

UPDATE: I reuploaded the skin with the missing bg gradient. Sorry, ;)

K how do I use it? LOL

I imported the XML.

Uploaded the images to images/ like it says in the style CSS where the images go.

and what i get is.... bare. No images. Dunno what the issue is.

I even fixed the image paths and they won't work...


After looking i see it is missing ALOT of images. like the background image.

When I made this I wasnt planning on putting it up for download, so I basicly made a new folder in the forum directory named gaming skin, then in that made another folder for images.

Sorry for the extra work.

Do you get it now?

Once I get home I will make it easier.

And thanks for your intrest in my skin :)

i got the header to show. but the VERY background stuff (the dots in your image) arent located anywhere. so righ tnow it looks like a very ugly blue color... That background will make it look great.

Opps, I must have added the wrong gradient in.

I upload am reuploading an updated skin with the missing gradient file.

As of now, I only have fixed. For this skin I will probobly only have fixed as I want to continue practicing and try new things with skinning. So I can get better.

the back ground still shows blue O_O

and what about adding th efont to it also? I'd like to make buttons and a new header but no font

I run a gaming forum but I don't think this skin is very 'gaming' like, except for the banner image.

Good work though.

great style.

Can you widen it by 100px? When you use it wil the arcade it breaks =/

dit.. well using dfferent compat it only breaks it some. so prolly a 50px more shoudl do. I can;t find it anywhere in the thing

double post because of a major error.

I have been trying to find out why i have double titles so i uninstalled all my plugins one at a time. after the last was uninstalled the double titels were still there. I switched to default skin and the doubles went away.

I have concluded the skin is giving double topic titles. Any possible way for you to fix?

Well, i am sure i messed up on some of the coding. It was my first skin.

Later tonight i will make a new gaming skin. PM me and I can make a custom one for you probobly :) . Just describe how you want it.

As for the whole double topic thing I have no clue. It works for my board. Your using vb 3.5.4?

19 Apr 2006, 23:16
yea... it seems vbplaza didnt actually uninstall when i told it to. so i deleted the entire style and re imported it and the doubles went away....
