@djnick

To come to @djnick's defense, he did clearly say from the very outset that he is a graphics guy and not a coder.

BTW the skins look fking awesome.

DjNick said he wanted the full experience. You don't have to touch ENVARC:#?.prefs files if he wanted to provide only skin bitmaps. But he said he wanted to change everything including AmiDock settings. So you need a tool to be able to handle IFF format of prefs files and change only one part. For example theme maker wants to change the colour of drop shadow and replaces the whole GUI.prefs file. That destroys my settings how, for example, menus behave. Then I have to change all that manually myself. Only WBpattern editor allows to change backdrop picture without changing the backdrop of drawers. All other prefs editors don't have cmd args to change a single setting alone. If the theme maker wants to change font and I use 18 pixel fonts and he replaces the font.prefs file using 12 pixel size I lose my font settings. A decicated tool could read the sizes and change only the name of the font and try to use the existing size and other settings and could also check width and height of the Workbench screen to offer good font size during installation. If I remember, idea was to add theme editor to the Style tab of the GUI prefs editor. It's even worse if he wants to change settings of AmiDock and have to overwrite then the whole amidock.xml file. I would lose all panels and icons on them. I don't remember if some of those skin bitmap files allowed to override some of the GUI settings so you don't have to touch prefs files at all. I don't know if anybody was trying to teach that to DjNick. Don't remember if you can make rounded corners without touching the GUI prefs, for example. Can't we get rid of those Amiga pens.

@djnick Quote:
what is the point to have just background change when all other colors, listers etc are on different style and coloring? If I do a theme I want to do it fully.

Let me get this straight. You found out it was beyond your capability to achieve what you wanted to do, so you just gave-up & quit completely? When you COULD have simply scaled-back your dreams, released something that you WERE capable of, and then afterwards get help from other people, who might have been able to get you closer to you dreams?

I'm sorry, but that seems like a cop-out, or (at best) faulty thinking.

I'm sure a lot of people would have been happy with separate Reaction-only & MUI-only themes. All that theming of other apps (like AmiDock & Filer), and combining it all together into one big installer, could have been left to some indefinite future.

If you didn't get the Sam460 for free, this wouldn't have matter much, but since you did I think your donators deserve to be treated better than this. However, I wasn't a donator, and strangely a lot of donators in Amiga-land don't seem to mind if someone don't do what they received donations to do (or at least they don't even bother posting to say they are unhappy).

Do it yourself, smart bwai.

Anyway, DJ nick DID THEMES, DID JINGLE ... and will do a video thanks to my X1000 exchange programme he is ONLY entitled to.

Especially people that donated NONE can talk to my right hand,
since that board is now mine.

P.S
DJ Nicks donation is NOT limited to Workbench IV (Workbench V? like c=OS)
but is free for Linux, AROS and MorphOS camps to, who does what is nice,
just DJ NICK HAS TO BE SIGNED AS GFX ARTIST WITH LINK TO HIS WEBSITE
AND E-mail.

Now, hello in all languages
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g_MZAIcU6Cg

And a school of Jamaican, since people complained about DIALECT OF ENGLISH

well, as there is not even a basic video editor for x1k/os4.x so far i know, i wonder how this video is going to get any further than said themes. that means beyond some photoshop concept drawings.

vox, you call this board biased. alas, it still very much applies to yourself even now as it strikes back. let this example of emotional breakdown after getting involved to far in a lost case be at least a warning to others. others told this, but let me repeat, stop letting others take advantage of you against your interest, calm down, talk to people outside the "community" about the situation and stop thinking in therms of proving some point and forcing it upon others and think about your real life instead. good luck whatever you do.

Guys easy with the attitude a bit eh. DJ's been around for a while, made/makes cool tunes on Amiga and has mad artist/graphic skills. He hasn't said he's leaving and running away with his A1-500 and he continues to do boot up sounds/ graphics for us which I personally think are high quality and use myself.

Kas1e backed up the bounty to buy his new A1-500 and we all know and trust Roman to deliver on what he promises and I'm sure DJNick will do the same in due time.

+1

If customizing EVERYTHING with a single installer is beyond our current capabilities, a more sensible goal would be to release everything in as usable a state as possible. A zip file with photoshop files is not very usable for the average amigan.

Quality of the graphical work not criticized in this post

Now you all have what I have - a PSD file with magic inside ;) Now be smarter than me and create what I imagined. You are free to do so and have All Time of this World:

http://www.os4depot.net/?function=showfile&file=graphics/theme/nykkskins.zip

I would be happily using your installer in future.

Can I share assigment with LInux community of Serbia?

I bet soon we will have at least Mint if not Fedora and Ubuntu skins
*IF skins do exist under those bad bad OSs.

Hey, maybe even Aussie can do themes for C=OS Beta 9 or C=OS Fusion alpha?

smarter than you.. you imagined.. as if it was os4 core team that has made *your* promises and was altogether not as smart. and now they will get blamed for your bold claims and fail atop their own. sorry. right, you did some out of the box graphics on a web page you got credit for. okay. even that costs money in real life. maybe even as much as 300-500 eur if you will find one who will pay. but, even if you are a little smarter than the average visitor of this site, a decent guy wouldnt take advantage of it. get it?

It's pretty simple: DJ asked a Sam460 to do something for amigaOS - so he supposedly needed to run amigaOS.

BUT... whoops, he only did some graphics, which one can do on any mac or pc. The "I need an NG Amiga to do something for AmigaOS" part was skipped.

beside the scammer, i blame kas1e for this, he must have have been really high on party drugs listening to party trance and then he gets on aw and starts ranting about how djnick is a true amigan and needs sam460 to do great things??

And why vox give him the x1000 for stolen sam instead of selling it and buying a mac if he wants to only run mos now and hates os4? Hey vox youre into good rasta purity why you accepting babylon by taking a computer that was obtained under false pretenses. You get bad voodoo spirits come visit you at night bwai.
