Thank you Cloud. I didn't have any extra fonts so I chose comic (because of nice numbers :roll: ). Now, I'm sure I'll found something nicer on the page you provided ;)
I already uploaded ini files for your skin. I think there would be no big difference in scaling bmp and psd files to 50%...

Yeah, regardless of the type effect it's called (there's usually at least 10 ways of doing everything in photoshop ;)) that new image looks smoother now. Nice job. And yeah, enlarging something 50%, at that smaller size, you won't visually notice a big difference, ESPECIALLY if it's enlarged properly, or using a decent enlarge plugin, could actually make it look better in cases. Keep up the good work buddy!! I might suggest changing the "_" button if still open to suggestions. I personally know it's minimize, but the way it currently looks, you might get a lot of people that have no idea what it is, some people might think it's a blank character or WIP option. Thought i would throw it out there either way.

Yeah, I agree with the minimise thing. The way I did mine was to model it on Windows' minimise button, i.e. offset slightly to the left and given a small drop shadow.

Yes, I was planing to replace that one :) Thanks guys.
@djdafreund: it was about reducing skin images to 50% of size. I think there would be no noticable difference between scaling bmp or pms graphic (and then saving as bmp).
Only thing that might help a little bit would be using bicubic sharper (or maybe doing it manually with unsharp mask or something).

EDIT:
I've finally finished my skin. I wish to thank all the people who contributed and helped me with their suggestions.

EDIT:
I appologise to those 2 who already downloaded my skin. Please do it again as there were some things missing in first version I uploaded :oops:

Nice work for that. The font you used in the end looks better than the comic sans one you had before. ;)

No, it's good, but it isn't WVGA, so I haven't included it in the poll. That will be the next one. ;)

I didn't mean that because of the poll but because of complete lack of response from people who downloaded it. I thouht that someone will try it and leave some feedback (either good or bad)... I guess I should have done the WVGA version :)

Post Re: VGA & QVGA Glossy Black skin
What about my new work-in-progress one? I posted an image and asked people to suggest changes and tell me what they liked/disliked. Have I got one reply since then? No. :|
Don't worry if people don't reply, it probably just means they have no complaints. ;)
