    Steam Skin

    Hey everyone... This message is for everyone who uses steam, I have been working on a skin for TacticalGamer for a little while now. I know there is another TG Steam skin floating around out there but I still wanted to give it a try.

    Let me know what you think.

    http://home.comcast.net/~avvinzalf/TGSteamSkinPi.rar

    I dont know how many times this can be downloaded through my comcast ftp, so hurry up or you may not get it ! =)

    It also modifys the ingame menus so dont forget to take a look there.

    Thanks

    Vinzalf, when you're done with your skin, let me know and I'll put it on some TG webspace...

    Re: Steam Skin

    Those are the freinds who arent online. I've tried changing that in the past, but as you probably know, Ya change one thing Steam changes everything.

    I have it set as black for the online players, and I wanted a distinction between whos online and whos not (not just the title line)

    I can work on it, But I've completely redone the skin about 3 times due to that Freinds list =/

    Lemme go set that text to pink to see what else it changes and work from there.

    Re: Steam Skin

    Quickly made a change, and set that background text to Grey.... It is easier to see, but I dont personally feel It fits the color scheme I was going after, as I used grey nowhere else. What do you think now?

    Thanks alot for the Feedback Cingular.

    'Grey' freinds list. jpg below. If enough people prefer that to white, I'll make a new upload for the skin with that.

    How about a green or brown color? Something that is noticeably darker than the cream/tan color you're using for the background, but noticeably lighter than black?

    Re: Steam Skin

    Okay I updated the colors and the only one that looked okay was the green text. Here's a Screenshot of it for review before It's fully put in...

    I still prefer the white, but If you really need to know whos Offline (compared to whos online) Then this will work.

    I already know about the forum link on the bottom of the menu, That will be fixed with the next time I upload it (not yet)

    Well, I vote for this one... I think it's kinda nice to be able to read text. But it's your creation, you go with what you think is best. I haven't heard anyone else chime in, either...

    Agreed. This latest version looks very nice.

    Re: Steam Skin

    I think your skins are fine guys. However, being the fruitcake that I am I like for the programs that I use most often to have a similat color scheme as the rest of my desktop (currently blue/light blue ).

    So if it wouldn't be too much of a pain, would it be possible to get a tg skin in blue. I don't know how much work goes into the skin making so i'm not sure whether its time consuming or not.

    If its not too much trouble I would really appreciate a blue steam skin .

    Thanks.


    I love gaming, mmmmmmmm
