Skin AstroCity WIP for Aurora 0.7b.1 / Completed

Recommended Posts

EDIT : Skin download at the first post + visuals. :)

Hello !

I'm back for the final version of my skin and some screens of it !

So, It's a Auroa 0.7b.1 skin for a Xbox 360 in my Astro City Candy Cab.

I've just change the boot screen of SteamOS skin (using Astro City logo), and the background main screen (using some video game logos)

I want to credit mrknorton for the original SteamOS skin I've work from, and Felida who helped me change the meta screen. :)

 

The visuals :

Enjoy ! :)

Below, the WIP :)

Hello !

Since I saw all the possibilities offered by Aurora and the tools put in available by the team, it made me want to contribute (modestly) to the group:

I decided to make a small skin customization. :)

To start with something simple, I decided to take my skin favorite (SteamOS, by mrknorton) and modify its loading image and its back main plan.

 

My Xbox 360 being in an SEGA AstroCity cabinet, the theme was all found!

 

So I started working on the background.

I was looking for a neutral result, not too invsid, but we can guess the references to the video game:

Then I worked on a loading image that could refer to the AstroCity.

 

I made several proposals ...

1549015046-xxx-06.png


1549015071-xxx-08.png


1549015077-xxx-09.png


1549015087-xxx-12.png

 

... I even test an other font, but nothing really good ...

1549015174-essais-typo.png

 

... I tested all that, and I realized that my loading image was not the right size (too small).

So I redid the image that I liked most to the right size and edited a new skin meta ...

and there, it does not work.
Aurora does not want to load my skin.

Well, as I changed 2 things at once, I will break down my progress by first testing with the loading image at the correct size, and once validated as working, I will do it again skinmeta.

I'll let you know what happens next !

You need to start with aurora 0.7 skin.. 

You can not use an older skin on a newer aurora.. Due to certain things not being in the skin.

 

Edit: good luck.. Be sure to watch my skin videos if you haven't

Hello Felida !

 

I had been careful to take the version of SteamOS (0.7b,  found here : https://www.realmodscene.com/index.php?/topic/4701-skin-aurora-steamos/), and by the way my first attempt with the wrong resolution worked. :)

I'll try my new trial, with only the loading screen at good relolution, soon.

 

I've watched your video, I use it to have a good result.

 

Thank you for your info ! :)

... well, I still have work ...

My image is shifted to the right and down.

It leaves a clearer part on the top and on the left.

(Sorry for the poor quality of my photo)

 

I'm going to study Felida's tutorial again.

You want to set the image as centered or stretched.. For HD you want a 1280x720 resolution..

Also.. There is an option for things to snap into a grid.. So you can place stuff easier 

Edit: the options are at the top tool bar, options 9 and 10.

Well, I worked by following the tutorial of Felida, and my loading screen is centered at the right size.

So I build a version before modifying the skinmeta, and it works perfectly.

I edited this same version by modifying the skin.meta, and it does not work. (does not even appear in Aurora's theme change list)

So, I use my version without change of meta, but with my loading screen :)

But I do not know why the edit step of meta does not work.
Too bad, I would have shared my humble version of skin for the owners of Astro & xbox360 :(

In any case, a big thank you to Felida for his help and his tutorial! :)
