Although an excellent idea please re-upload as it seems the file is corrupt. It won't open in Bootskin and when i tried renaming it to .zip it showed that it was partial file or bad/corrupted zip file. Other than this it's a ***** skin, i'll be waiting for a fixed version.

If you fix this version, could you release a Professional version?

You should fix this one first, it does not install, it can't be changed to a .zip to extract folder.

Ok. How do you save your bootscreen image as a .bootskin file? That's what I'm having trouble with. By the way, the Professional Version has been released.

In folder for a bootskin there is the bootskin.ini,which is the config file, the images are the background and progress bar, which are .bitmap.
They must be 16 color 4 bit bitmaps. Here is a tutorial that may help Link

Ok. How do you save your bootscreen image as a .bootskin file?


There are two ways to do that:
a. Make the skin into your C:/Program Files/Stardock/Wincustomize/Bootskin/Skins/"My Skin" (The name of your skin) and then after you run Bootskin select from File>Export Selected Skin to File... This is the proper way to do it and the one i use for optimal performance.

b.The improper way is to save the files you were working on as one .zip file (these are the two bitmaps - one for the boot and one for the progress bar - and the bootskin.ini). Then rename file and change extension to .bootskin. Although this works fine most times it ain't advisable to do it due to the fact that you may end up with a crc error (Cyclic Redundancy Error).

Hope this helps.

This is because the is an error. If screen image is not 640x480, if images are not 16 color 4 bit bitmap, if name of images in .ini are not the same as the image name, these are the main errors that will not show the bootskin in list when open bootskin. Go to skins folder, C:\Program Files\Stardock\WinCustomize\BootSkin\skins, look at some you have downloaded as see how they are done.
