TRO 'Stone' Skin

Started by Wildfire

Wildfire

So, from the early MistWalker days I found the original skins too clunky, hogging a lot of screen space with unnecessary gfx.
With this in mind I started learning to modify the games skins and change them to suit my needs.

Today I present to you all my on going efforts in the form of my take on a skin I call Stone.
My aim is to optimise, slimming the games windows skins down.
I have a few other ideas for themes in the works but no where near ready for public testing.

If you have any issues, feedback or suggestions then please do get in touch!


Important
This is work in progress so be prepared for errors and other issues.

Installation
Installing is real easy!

Locate your Realms skins folder, usually in the default location C:\Program Files (x86)\Rat Labs\The Realm Online\FF\skins\user
Extract the contents of the archive to this folder.

Don't like it? Just delete the contents of the user folder or individual files and your back to default! Ta da!

Changelog: v0.1.9 • 3rd May, 2020

  • Work still to be done on numerous windows to bring them in-line with the rest of the theme.
  • Squared off a lot of the GFX, namely Tabs, Buttons and Labels on most windows.
  • Health Bar and Exit Combat skins have been substituted for the default ones.
  • A few other tweaks and adjustments.

It's not bad, I really like that the window border is gone. I really only logged in ran around for a few minutes. Nice work!

I just downloaded from the drive link, and I can't even open .rar (the archive/zipped file) in winrar. Keep getting an error about the archive being in an unknown format or damaged, and I downloaded it from scratch several times. Never seen that error before in thousands of rar extractions other than for downloads that got corrupted. Should I try a different extractor, or did you accidentally change the file?

Hi GhostyGhost,

I've just checked and nothing I can see is wrong. Tertiary has had no issues by the sounds of it.
I'm using WinRAR v5.60.

Tertiary

Nope, I had no issues at all. Used Winrar5.5 64 bit

GhostyGhost

I fixed it. For whatever reason my PC was trying to open it on a dated version of winrar I didn't even realize I still had on my computer. Using the current version, it worked just fine. Thanks.

Hey I like this skin but sometimes items get hidden at the bottom of my BP. Is there a fix for this? Also, are there other skins available somewhere?

In the recent months I have received messages on discord regarding the status of this project.
Just to be clear I have not abandoned it but merely taken timeout. The skin has evolved many times, even before it's release, and with the recent default skin update it has given me a lot to think about.
