    Hi ! :)

    I've created a program for easily view gp2x's skins and change them :

    TODO:
    - Create better thumbnails


    How to use :

    - Place your skins directories in the skins/ directory
    - And launch skin2x !

    this is pretty cool

    i can make a custom version of my skin for my brother which has "tooltips" which say what everything is/does, for when he wants to have a play, then change the skin to that so everything is easier to navigate for him etc

    This is a really nice idea for a utility, well executed. I've just installed it. :)
    Just realised that you made your skin chooser skinnable itself. Maybe you could make a skin chooser for your... no, nevermind..

    Suggestion:

    Rename the gpe to gpu, so it goes with the utilites.

    Very useful and nifty utility - Before this I hadn't touched skinning, this persuaded me to do so ;)

    Thanks :)

    A program like this should be written to run under Linux/Windows (SDL) so that Skin authors can view their product without having to put it on their 2x first.

    Strangely enough, this doesn't seem to work on my GP2X. The directory structure is set up properly, I've got a fully charged set of batteries and all other apps and games run, but when I run the program I just get a black screen.... :(

    Strange :unsure:


    Have you touched the 'default' directory ?
    Have you installed the SDL libs (or reinstalled it) ?

    I've installed the SDL libs, but still no joy. I've tried completely removing the program from the SD card then replacing it, but still nothing.

    Could it have anything to do with the particular skins I've got inside the 'skins' folder?

    I don't think :blink:

    Can you delete all the skin2x directory and reinstalled it WITHOUT install custom skins, just leave the "default" directory?

    I've removed all the skins and it works - I'm going to add them back in one by one, and I'll post which ones cause problems.
