    Dialog design

    I rather like the compacted design like it is now myself. But I can see where some might prefer seeing all data at once. Voted with my preference.
  2. Hey all, now that there is a section on Project Pokemon itself for the official skins I've redirected the Original Post to point there! Also, pretty nice skin there theSLAYER =)
  3. Ah, cool, nice to know the real reason. Thanks Codr.
  4. Any of the skins are unfortunately going to be darker in game than the extracted files that you see here. The game just handles the images that way, I think because the C-gear buttons are overlayed on top.
  5. Completed Request for B2W2 Elesa. Single download available in this post, original post file piggman's skins updated to include as well. Elesa 2 C-Gear..zip
  6. Yes, making your own C-gear skins that are compatible requires much more work and working under limitations. Not really going to make a tutorial for that, as its not really a pokegen thing. Basic constraints are 256x192 pixels, and 16 bit depth. In addition there is a limit of how many 16x16 pixel blocks that the game can load; basically meaning you can't have a busy image and need open space, I am still figuring out exactly how this one works. Click the thread I link in the OP at the bottom to look more into it. I'm a hobbyist pixel artist, so these kind of things are fun for me, though I'm used to creating non-Pokemon game tile-sets.
  7. your welcome, and I didn't change it, That is just my custom Windows 7 theme.
  8. I made a short tutorial for doing this in PokeGen Here. It may help you out.
  9. Hello All! As I have started to make my own skins, and see myself continuing to create more in the future I've decided to create this step by step tutorial to help out! This way I can have a nice and easy place to point people towards for install instructions and as a file dump for my own created skins . What this will allow you to do: You can use any official c-gear skins that you either missed or are unobtainable due to region or release. You will also be able to use completely custom skins, I will provide my skins I have created in this thread. Ultimately you will get to turn your bland c-gear into stuff like this: PokeGen C-Gear Tutorial First and foremost you will need access to your save file. If you are simply running on an emulator or a flash cart this is easy and you should already have the knowledge of how to get this! If you are wanting to use this on your retail cartridge you will need a save dongle to retrieve your save file and then put it back on your cart. That being said, lets get started! Open up PokeGen and load your save (File>Open). Your save will load, and you will see all your Pokemon in your party and boxes show up. We are not going to change or mess with them at all, so if you are trying to keep a clean and cheat free game don't worry, the save will be fine! Your next step is to open up the C-Gear tool (Tools>C-Gear Background) You will see a new window pop up that has your current C-Gear in the left hand box. The right hand box should be empty. In my example below you can see the pikachu c-gear skin which is a standard skin available on the global link to anyone. Click the "Open" button and navigate to the C gear file that you would like to change it to. This has to be a C gear file type. Select your file in the browser and hit open. You should now see your desired skin on the right hand box. If everything looks correct on the right hand side, click the arrow in between the boxes to overwrite the c-gear skin that is currently on the game. You should now see both boxes have the skin that you want to use. That's all you need to do, pretty simple right? Close out the C-Gear Window, and save your changes! Now just put this save file back on your cartridge and you've got yourself a spiffy new c-gear to make everyone else jealous! C-Gear Skins For official skins Please head to the C-Gear Skin Gallery on Project Pokemon! Previews of my own current custom made skins can be seen by clicking the spoiler below. Download the Piggman's Skins attachment for these. For more user made custom skins, and official skins after the date of this posting, see this ProjectPokemon thread. If you have any requests for a custom skin, you may make a request, but there is no guarantee that I will do it. (I have to usually find a request interesting/fun myself before doing one) 157 July 12th 2012 Piggman's Skins..zip
  10. Hey all, found this thread through a Google search after getting curious on whether or not I could make my own completely custom c-gear skin. After a bit of playing around (theres some wierd limitations besides the size and color restraints) I was able to get it working! Was helpful having this thread for resources! I joined up to share my creation and maybe make some more here later! Here is a download Link. I converted it already so all you need to do it load it through PokeGen =) DOWNLOAD
