If this is the first time you play with mx skin system, we recommend you:
1. Read the tutorial "skin-tutorial.doc" and get a basic idea of how a skin is built.
2. Double click on the "_explode_mx3.bat/_explode_mx4.bat", unpack "first_mx4.mxskin" and examine the sample skin source.
3. Read the "skin-engine-features.doc" if you want to know more about the features of the skin engine.
4. Look up commands and objects in the "skin-system-reference.doc" when you're working on your skin.

I have the same question - or equivalent.  How do we make *.mxskin files that will override the contents of certain htm and css files packaged in UIMain.dat or UIHuge.dat?  I know that MX5 will now loas *.mxskin files but just  loading another background image is NOT a skin, not a real, full skin.

I want an answer to my question and think it woukd be good to update  the SDK with MX5 instructions.

I have seen an mxskin file that loads a background image included in the file along with a congig.ini file like the one associated with the Skin Center files in MX5 and n UserData.  That give clues to how a config.ini file is structured.  But full skins for Mx3/4 have a xkin3.ini file.  How is the MX5 equivalent file to be structured??

Plase give some help to skin makers so we can stop munging the default files in MX5.

what do you mean they are NOT skins - joe with 2 hats thinks they are :mdr: - as to the rest of it i dont think its going to happen - prove me wrong Jeff - but the skin centre died with 3 - i think the devs agree with Joe - what we have is it
