File Category: dUP Skins

Here's a simple new dUP skin. It makes use of the centered about window feature and has mouse over buttons. I didn't put my "X" on the main window, so please credit me in the about window.

Files included are region, resource, colors, example exe, and screenshot.

Strong bevel and emboss (or something like that), play a bit more till you get a nice effect. And the colors dont match, why dont you try the next time to use one main color like if you use black, you also use dark grey, light grey maybe silver. Or blue, darkblue, cyan and maybe some black and silver. And remember rushing can be really bad. Take the time, with some one your favorite songs on the background like I do.

P43,

Thanks for giving some constructive comments. This skin doesn't really appeal to me, and it isn't my typical style. I try to make different style skins to appeal to different people's tastes. I'm always tring something new, as I don't want all my gfx to look the same. That would just be boring. If you download the example exe, you'll see that this skin has a variety of colors with mouse-over effects that help blend the colors together. Some people might like a little color variety in their lives :)

Try to create your own style like if people see it they will know for 100% that it was made by you. I think the color gives the life to a skin not the shapes, if you use colors who match eachother and good effects it would look very good. And dont post any coded like a cracktro keygen on pouet, I just saw it and people there are always ****ing around. I know how they are like, if you tell some one to ^&^# off, he will shearch all your products and give them a thumb down. Mostly they do this with their stupid friends.

Believe me, there are many ****ers there but if one of them creates some ugly **** they will give it a good rate because they are friends ... wel more then friends for sure. Even Razor1911 and Deviance products got screwed by some assholes. But I saw a cracktro where the ****ings where awarded to some pouet users. If you told them to shutup they will always give your products a bad rating even if they like it.

But some of them are too dumb to put their photos on the inet, omg demo party? It looks more then a meeting of ugly people. I think they act tough on the internet but if they where in front of you they would **** in their pants.

I think we all should focus on that, create keygens, patchers, cracktros etc etc. Dont look at their opinions. Because they dont rate it on music or gfx or effects but lets say if the demo doesnt work they give you a thumb down.

BTW, you shouldnt care about opinions. Because who are we to judge if something is nice or not? Nothing is nice, that is just what we people made. The one likes it the other not. Thats how its work, only there are some people who cant do **** so they try to screw your whole day. Its more like gain crew respect with cracks, what pouet people think is not important. I think its possible to take revenge like if there is a demo party go to it and beat them up, since many of them are drunk they will be easy opponents.

Just practise and practise, even if it looks impossible just go on. I had the same too when I started, when I saw the interface of PS, I really tought I will never create my own stuff. Its better to have 5 skilled people in a crew then 20 unskilled people. RELOADED they had a fight the whole crew splitted up, they said they only had 2 elite crackers. Yes 2 elite. I never tought that but even they get ****ing awards. I think people dont respect the work of other crews.

Try to do more cool coding effects on the skins, that would be a big plus point. Even if people would say it sucks. Then you could start about the coding. Get it? And practise a lot and dont let opinions of other fool you, many people they cant have it when some one is improving his skills. I had the same when I was a starter many people said "give up" or "you will never create something that looks good". Guess what? Those people dont laugh anymore.

The final stuff I want to say is, I really hate it when people say "I cant do X" or "Im bad because I dont have the skills of X". Dont think like that it will only let you down all the big artists in the world started as beginners no one started with elite skills. You should also start with other stuff or artforms like music graffiti coding or cracking the more you know the more fun you will have.

That was a bit of a ramble :)

Ecliptic said he designed that skin for other people and their tastes, not for his own, hence the different colours and reason for trying out a different style...

Excuse me, but I dont like this one. But as you have made this for someone on his/her likings, I wont blame you for this :) . Things dont match, the colour scheme is not what I usually see in your work. Maybe if you change the black colour to something lighter, if will look better and match the strong bevel effect.
