Thanks Spyros ! I already changed it, it wasn't to difficult 'cause wordings on skin are still in text mode (not bitmapped).

Problem fixed, any other visible issues ?

Cheers !

P.S. Silver version is great idea, but unfortunatelly, it would take so much additional space on the server (skin is already over 2 Mgs), so I'm not sure about this idea... anyway, lack of spare time is killing me, so I think I'll have to pass on this one  :-\

Then I guess it's not a good time to ask for something else I had on my mind.. to make an adaware skin  ::) (www.adawareskins.com)

I know we are all asking you for A LOT, but you're just TOO GOOD with all this stuff!

I'm still waiting for someone to make a manual on how to use PaintShop Pro to make skins. I got some ideas, which I would like to try.

... Or even better, alwil could make a "skin builder" like lavasoft has made for Ad-aware. You just do the icons in PhotoShop or PaintShop Pro and all the rest is in the skin builder!

Oooooh, there is much more work to do in avast! skins than just making icons. I would need at least 10 pages of one thread to explain everything and include all those screenshots of what needs to be done in here. Who never tried this, doesn't know how much work needs to be put into creating process of just one skin... everything needs to be created from the scratch, there is no template you can follow. That's why every single skin is different and interesting in it's own way. The fact that I can finish one skin in a day, doesn't necessarily mean that skins are easy to make... it means, I am very fast and good in making skins, hehe ;D ok, ok, enough with jokes...

Creating just icons and put them in skin, wouldn't look too good in all skins...

I'm not saying it's too difficult to learn, but I'm saying there is a lot of work... a lot of work, believe me... every single peace that you see on the skin, needs to be created from the scratch... btw, SkinBuilder is already there, you guys just need to learn how to use it, and you can start making your own skins. I believe Martin already posted some notes on how to start with SkinBuilder, but I'm not quite sure... try Search engine in this forum.

Cheers !

I'm happy to announce that new skin is working fine, I tested it like million times for last two days and couldn't find any single glitch so far.

I just sent compressed version (aswcs) of the skin to Vlk, and now all we have to do is just sit and wait until guys from Alwil perform some additional tests and release it in avast! skins download section...

Note: Windows 2000 (and later) users, don't forget to turn ON translucent effect in avast! settings under appearance menu.

Cheers !

Update:

It looks like we will have to wait little while... I sent my latest skin to Vlk 2 days ago, but he is in USA till the end of next week. Anyway, I've heard that he has access to his mail even from there, so if he catches some spare time (unlikely, because he has a lot of work in there  :-\ ) he will let us know... if not, no big deal, we will hva eto wait untill he comes back from there.

Cheers !

hi! sorry I haven't posted in the forums for awhile, the last 3 - 4 days have been so busy with school work. This looks excellent sasha, you have done a really good job!  I can't wait for the skin to come out, and I am very thankful.

Have a great holiday!,

Sasha -- Wow!  That's definately your best skin yet!  IMHO   :)

I wish I had translucent effects, but alas I have Win98SE.
