You should get an email around 17:00 CST.  I hope.  I'm out buying some computer parts after work but I don't think that will effect my timeframe.  :wink:

Hi, Geezer, thx very much for the file. Really appreciate it.

These are the file folders after unzipping:

Program files
    icons-2a
    photo
    radar
    radar1
    stocks
    zodiac
Radar1
skins
Weather Icons

My main page now looks like this, I'm wondering whether I'm missing some file folders.

Thx!

I don't think so.  Maanwell, a very eager, new skin writer has been converting the 2B-VGA to QVGA and it's looking very good.  Again, you are seeing only his native language but that's pretty easy to translate.  What do you think you are missing?

HI, Geezer, thx for the help.

The reason why I thought I might have missed some files was the screen shot of the 2B VGA skin. Since it looks different from the QVGA version (below), and the main page of the QVGA does not have the agenda or news ticker, I thought there might be something missing. But maybe the two skins are indeed different, and nothing is missing from the QVGA version. It just looks that way. I haven't got a chance yet to really look into the skin file, maybe some small editting will be enough to put agenda and news ticker on the main page. :roll:

Thx very much!!!! Love the skin!

You're absolutely right.  Maanwell completely redid some areas and I think the news ticker was one he personally didn't care for.  That's the beauty of TP.  We can make it look almost do anything to your taste.  I'll help where I can.  Good luck.

I have been using Hammerskin ENG VGA skin and thought I would try 2B-VGA.  I know I have to make some changes, but I don't have a clue other than I need to rename the launcher tabs and re-load, but I don't understand why my program icons are so large and the skin is small.  Everything is proportional on the Hammerski.  If this will be to time intensive for you I will certainly understand if you say to stay w/Hammerskin.

Geezer

Peace of cake...  There is a switch/one line of code that needs to be changed.  This part of the code is about 90-95% down.  Just doa  search for "region,16,0,-1" and you should find it. Let me know if you need additional help

// The next two sections defines/laysout the icons.

 region,16,0,-1

 if,var,var3,,=,1

//  On 2003 FE PPCs: Change this VAR to 1 if you want the initial QL icons to be small!
//  Change this VAR to 2 if you want the initial QL icons to be Normal!
//  On 2003 SE PPCs: Change this VAR to 2 if you want the initial QL icons to be BIG!
//  Change this VAR to 1 if you want the initial QL icons to be Normal!

Note the var3.  If it's "1", then change it to "2" and you should be good to go!

Thanks for your reply and information, which took care of the icon problem.  For and "ole guy" your eyes sure are good.  I'm 39 yrs younger than you and my trifocals have a hard time seeing the 2B.  I think I am better off with Hammerskin, even though I like your layout.

Thanks Again!!!!!!!!!!

Hey. no problem.  I just remember this issue when I first started the skin and that's why I have tried to comment EVERYTHING I was doing throughout the code.  It makes it so much easier to remember something that's at least a week old.  :doh:   Anyway, I understand your delemna (not sure on that spelling)  But that's the beauty of TP, we can always modify someones skin to our own personal taste.  Good luck..
