backround image prob
Hello @ all.
i think it´s my first post here ;) and first i want to give my RESPECT to all homebrew-progger. crazy-tools, spezially the new/updated things at the last months. GREAT :)
i´ve a question about to use a backround image on sms1.6(rev3)... btw. a question about making the backround image.
i want to create a backround image. i followed the user-manual and tryed to make a skin.sms file with the pic2sms.exe. i loaded my .bmp image an saved ist but the pic2sms won´t create me a .sms-file like it´s written at the manual - i only get´s .skn-file´s ... i checked it out at two winxp_sp2 pc´s
i tryed also to rename the .skn files to skin.sms but sms won´t take them.
best wishes from germany
hast anybody ideas ? or ready-to take backround images ?
That is because the Skinning section in the Manual is outdated, the information is about SMS 1.5. Anyway, in 1.6 I think u don't need the skin.sms file anymore, u need the .skn file that is created by pic2sms.exe. Try creating the .skn file again and then putting it on the MC (SMS folder) and activating the background image option in SMS's menu.
Hope this helps ;) Anyway, the manual should be updated soon with new instructions...
hi furatudo !
thx for your reply.... but it wont work here. i´ve testet all possibilitis...
i think it is right to put the image in the SMS-folder what has been created from sms on the mc0:/SMS/ ?!
when i try do "use a backround image" in sms the screen only "BLINK" one time an then there are no changes, the backround is still the old.
have anybody one ready to go backround image for me ? so i can check if my image is not right or if the sms "only" wont take any image on my v9..
@Fatman222: ...get the latest skin generator from my "site" and put generated skin file to mc0 as "mc0:/SMS/SMS.skn" :). To verify that you use right skin generator open generated skin file by "notepad" and look at first 4 bytes: there must be "SMS@" string...
hello EEUG !
1.) big respect for the sms ! really great thing !!!
2.) thx now it works :) i allready have uses the latest skin generator
there are so may possibilitys for the image-name,place, ending, File-Name/ending: WRITING BIG or writing small...
i still can't get the skins to work at all :(
