My New Skin (Red n Black HD)
« on: September 27, 2016, 12:10:36 PM »
I've been busy working on my first ever skin for what seems like forever now but thankfully It's just about complete, I'm just tinkering with the final little bits n pieces here and there...

Anyway, my skin is a 1920x1080 resolution skin, which I've called 'Red n Black HD' .

This skin is now available to download from the Private Skins section of this forum

I've listed four screenshots below of my new skin...

Loving the big buttons I cant see much else as on my other monitor so I am on portrait rather than landscape, but I do like those buttons.

Shall have a look as soon as these updates are completed on the other machine.

The big buttons inspiration came from the Sound Leisure (MiM) jukebox they have in my local pub, I did try and replicate it quite closely to start with until I realised it didn't appear to have any uniformity to their skin.

I don't know if you found the same problem when making your skins, but I found it very difficult not to replicate buttons from previous older skins. On several occasions I made a few buttons only to discover they were nigh on identical to older skins and it looked like I had just half inched them, very frustrating.

Finally a new skin, looks good dude.
Thank you, Sorry that it's not a 4:3 skin though.


Do many people still use 4:3 touchscreen monitor?

I have all three now. You will have 43 on older cabs, 169 on monitors and I am 768 x 1366 on my new monitor.

I will be using the 32 inch now for my jukebox but will finish off the skins for it.

God no, to be honest I wanted to clone NSM and other jukeboxes. I would not copy any of the previous skins, as I said to you think outside of the box. You have done good graphics, which I am going to try and copy I thought you said you was no good at photoshop? lol

I am not sure if I will make them chrome, but I do want your background images on a button. At the moment I am still sorting out computers but I am puzzled at the moment as the card is the same a 710 GTX but one is from ASUS and one is from Gigabyte, both 1 gig DDR3.

The ASUS has a rating of 5.3 and 6.7 for graphics and yet the Gigabyte has 2.5 and 6.7 for Aero and and gaming graphics.

I shall finish this quickly as display is going crazy.

You haven't? How come? Doesn't everyone with a paid up version of E-Touch get access to the Private skins section??

The private section if for Lifetime members and commercial users, Mark is a V9 supporter. There is a V10 Skin releases section that V10 supporters can access.

I will eventually upgrade just to give you a few more beer tokens, but wont be this month, as been spending and spending. I just brought a 780 ti GTX graphics card for the arcade machine, and I still need to buy a hard drive which is going to be my months spending so I will be looking at November or possibly holding back until next year with Xmas coming up.

Credit cards are handy but paying them back is a pain, but with out it I wouldn't have been able to buy my 32 inch monitor, which is touch screen by the way, just incase I have not mentioned that before ;) Three graphics cards, a 610, 710 now a 780. A computer, a SSD and of course beer.

I am looking at a 4tb as apparently they are supposed to be better than the 3tb which I was quite shocked about, but according to graphs they are less likely to fail than the 3tb versions.

I think you have my email Tel, if you want to send it, so I can have a look at those buttons, and how you get those buttons on the left lol
