I also would like it if a Sin skin for Steam could be available for download.

I used to make skins for Steam 2 using notepad and photoshop, but now I don't know how to make skins for Steam 3 with images.

I've searched up but as far as I can see you can't have images in Steam 3 skins. Here's a site with Steam 3 skins and as you can see none of them have images: http://www.cstrike-planet.com/steamskins/

Anyways I've made some progress via trial and error, mostly error.

The image looks squashed, yes because I chose an image that's not ment to be resized in such manner. I only chose this image to test with in the mean while until I actually know where things are.

Getting Steam and background images to play nice is near impossible at this point, mainly because not all of the windows are layered the same way (meaning that in some dialog windows, the background actually appears on top of the text). Both the friends chat windows and the hardware survey results are victims of that (I'm sure there's more), and I'm not sure if these issues will ever be fixed.

I'll jump that bridge when I get to it [img]/forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img], but I may have a problem as I don't have anyone in my friends list to see what it looks like in the chat window.

Work in progress <<Click
I'm not sure if the texture I chose for behind the image matches too well. I hope no one minds me using emergence textures for the skin.

That looks niceee. Are you having any problems with the image messing up on the other windows? Or does the image resize itself?

A very nice piece of work, if it or something similar was working completely and available for download, I would download it.

I'll release it when I've finished with all the windows.
I can have it so that the image resizes itself with the window or stay one size.

Expanded games window
At the moment I'm trying to work out what controls the colour which is under the scroll bar. There are some bugs, like if you were to collapse the "Installed" section the background picture vanishes and I have no idea why.
Still lots to do, but if you want it now here's a temp host of it's current state:
Download
Extract to C:\Program Files\Steam\skins
Activate via Settings tab and select SiN Episodes from drop down list.

Very nice work CommanderZx2. Although the temp host download link seems to be broken now. Looking forward to your final release.

Forgive me if this is a stupid question, but anyway to change the font color of steam? I seem to be stuck with black and I think I wanna change it while using your skin...

Odd that you're font colour is black, when it should be white and then blue when selected. Have you changed your font colour via other means in the past?

There's a bug if you have the "Installed" section collapsed the picture vanishes from the small Steam window.

It'll probably be a week or so before I make an update for the skin as I'm rather lazy when it comes to doing things [img]/forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]
