No, not yet... you'll have to learn it the hardest possible way... digging into SoftShape's ActiveSkin - SkinBuilder by yourself. That is exactly what I did... look at the results.  ;)

Cheers !

The ActiveSkin package (v4.27) can be downloaded from http://cat.asw.cz/~vlk/as_v427.zip .

Hope this helps,

Well in fact it's a programming component to be reused in other applications (like avast).

It comes with a SkinBuilder application, which is "complimentary" (the subject of license is the redistributable component).

We do have the commercial license of ActiveSkin so I believe as far as you use it to build avast skins, you're covered by our license...

Cool. I think the folks around will be mad. :)

BTW SZCraftec is probably the biggest avast skin expert, and I'm sure he'd be willing to provide help, if needed.

Thanks

Thanks Ondrej... no problem, here I am...

btw, LCARS skin is alive... I'm so happy that I did it... so many avast! users contacts me and send me greetings and compliments for that skin... I didn't even know how popular StarTrek is...

Cheers !

I wanted to find about more about "ActiveSkin - SkinBuilder"
But there is no information about it at this URL : http://www.softshape.com.
Does anyone have the proper URL ?

EDIT
OK, silly me.
I just clicked the "ActiveSkin news..." link : "Not available for the moment."
END EDIT
