July Desktop Screenshots

Thursday, July 1, 2010 by Jafo | Discussion: WinCustomize Talk

 

OK....so there's skinning 'bits' around....in the GUI....but the 'main' fun-of-the-moment is the wall....in-game shot of me [trying to] skinning planes in FSX.....and here I'm about 40 thou above Melbourne ....in a SU 47 'Berkut'.

In 15 minutes I can be buzzing over King Island...where I was born.....

Skinning in FSX is 'kinda' complicated.

Everything from XML coding to texture mapping and per-pixel editing, coding effects to activate correctly [eg. ABs].  [it's amazing how much stuff 'out there' that is clunky or missing one detail or another....and not just counting compatibility issues, either].

I hate alpha-blending.....and co-ords for gauges in a VC....it's all just too much like Litestep....you know, - complicated.....

I always look forward to the screenshots by you, karmat. They are always so pleasing to the eye.

Thanks so much, Xiandi! Actually your skin, Darker Side, would have gone nicely with this shot.

Doc, assuming you're running Xtreme v10.x, switch the style of the weather icons to 'Style 2'. I think you'll thank me for it.

Thanks Jorge! Yep... much better! I wish I knew how to limit the size of the image of the weather (sun, fog, etc....).

Winstep is sooo great! love this program, and wish I knew more about it. I think I'm going to have to spend a lot more time just poking around in it. I'm really looking forward to your next developments in Winstep!

Thanks for the tip!
