Thumbs up Clie Skinner 1.0 Released

*HOT OFF THE PRESS*

Many of us, for some time now, have been a little disappointed with how Clie Handhelds have worked with the Virtual Grafitti(VG) and Status Bar (SB) skins. We have manually loaded skins, changed ID numbers, soft-resets all to get rid of the plain-jane look of our VG and SBs.

While the Geeks in us have loved using VGs and SBs provided by different graphic designers, there has been something missing ...... REAL COLOR and an easy way to change skins without complex processes.

Clie Skinner 1.0 program has now arrived to take your Clie's NR/NX/NZ/TH/UX handheld to a totally New Level in VG/SB Skin Beauty. The program, not only allows higher quality VGs and SB to be utilized on your handheld, it makes switching between skins even easier than ever before!

Skinner is an instant virtual graffiti and statusbar skin loader for NR, NX, NZ, TH and UX model Clies.

Here are some of the features of this wonderful program:

Instant loading: No reset is needed to load new skins--you see them instantly! (A reset is needed when Skinner is installed, de-installed, or its 16-bit setting is changed.)
16-bit support: Graffiti and statusbar skins used to be 8-bit which resulted in low quality, especially for photo skins. Now graffiti and statusbar skins can be in brilliant full 16-bit color. (Only in full version and in shareware version in trial period.)

Cross-loading: Load NR skins on NX, NZ and TH models. Load NX/NZ/TH skins on NR models. (Not available on UX because of different arrangement of graffiti and statusbar areas.) This includes features to automatically generate resources that your model needs but that the original skin may lack, like CF icons when loading an NX60 skin on an NX80 model.

Memory stick support: Save memory by storing all your skins except the currently loaded data on a memory stick, compact flash card or UX internal media storage. Move all your skins at once there. (Only in full version and in shareware version in trial period.)

Free skin pair: Gorgeous 16-bit Jeff Frankus (from zlthemes) "Layered Metals" graffiti skin for NR/NX/NZ/TH models and statusbar skin for NX/NZ/TH models.

Free upgrades: Your registration code will either work on all future versions or you will be issued a new one.

The Program is available on PalmGear.


This is a MUST-Have Program for Those Clie Owners of a NR/NX/NZ/TH/UX handheld. Download a copy today and see how well this program works with your handheld.

You can also let me make a bit more money by registering by sending $8 by paypal directly to me (ap85 at georgetown dot edu). The official home page of the project is www.prussfamily.us/skinner.html

HELP!

I purchased it and am waiting for the Skinner_Registration.pdb.

Hit a snag, read the manual, but couldn't find answers. Here are the problems:
1. Installed Skinner.prc - no problem
2. Installed NX-NZ-TH-Status bar-icons.prc - no problem
3. Installed NR70-status bar-icons.prc - no problem
4. Installed Layered_Metals_VG.prc - no problem
5. Installed Layered_Metals_SB.prc - PROBLEM!

The HotSync message said that both item 4 and 5 are of the same file "LAYERE~1.PRC", therefore you can only install one of them.

Tried to install layered _Metals_VG (MS) since this is the only one that can be installed at this moment. When I highlighted and tapped Load, a screen popped up saying "Need 16-bit support". I tried to go to Options, preferences, put a check on 16-bit support, soft reset, etc., No FIX.

When I when back to built-in Sony SB, now the square WiFi icon is replaced with Sphinx round WiFi icon. Soft reset would not bring back the Sony square WiFi icon. I thought I can change them again manually by going to FileZ and change the Version ID, etc., but when I look into the File version IDs, they are already changed to 0 (by Clie Skinner?) For now, I stick with Sphinx VG & SB skins

I downloaded the trial version and installed Skinner.prc and NX-NZ-TH-Status bar-icons.prc on my TH55/E. So far so good. I loaded the SB skin Sonipa NXMod. Unfortunately the bluetooth icon looks ugly (the black icon itself is surounded by a piece of the old status bar background) and doesn´t fit the skin. Is this supposed to be solved by the NX-NZ-TH...prc file or is it just me being too stupid to use your tool properly or what´s wrong?

DanT .... email the developer... I'm sure he will know how to help you out with this one. Wish I could help... Just don't know how.

As far as the 'skins' installation problem.. ... almost sounds like a old DOS 8.3 format issue. You might want to rename the files on your system prior to installing (It won't affect the Internal Palm Name) to something like LMVG.prc (for Layered Metals VG) and LMSB.prc (for Layered Metals SB). See if that helps you out some

Lovely! Now what we need are good 16-bit skins. The documentation says that there are none available, so are any skin developpers working on them?

Deleted PhotoSkin before installing Skinner 1.0. I had about 10 different VGs and SBs loaded in RAM. This wonderful app successfully moved them to my MS, automatically creating the Skinner directory to store them in, and after a reset it performs flawlessly on my TH55! Now when I get home, I can load many more VGs and SBs that I simply didn't want taking up RAM!

I have seen them...thank you. Now we just need to get them released. I could even make one if the tools for making them were easy enough to use. I'm not a very good programmer.

The Festus440 VG Factory supports 16-bit VG skins. I've also made available a bunch of batch files for generating 16-bit VG and SB skins on handypalmstuff.sf.net.

And PalmGear has just approved my lot of 39 NX/NZ/TH/NR Graffiti skins and about thirty UX ones. (Some require Skinner to load on UX/NX/NZ/TH. All require Skinner on NR.) All are completely free (GPL, so you can even download the layered files they're made from and modify them as you wish as long as redistribution satisfies the GPL). If you go to these pages you get to see them all.

The correct sequence is: Uncheck graffiti and statusbar in main screen, reset, check "16-bit support" in prefs, reset, load skin. Version 1.01 holds your hand a little more in this, and I sent 1.01 to DanT.
