hi guys, i guess this is the part of the forum to post it, Stianu89 em Blu3 3y3s are making a WLM skin as they have posted in the skins sections of this same forum, they have asked in their topic for a patch to allow users to replace the background of the main window, without much problem. I was thinking if there is someone here that can make this patch. If you can please reply to their topic:
Vista Live messenger Skin topic
Thanks in advanced.

The lbback.gif thing is not the thing:P We need a executable patch, for changing a png we have set for the background, Take a look in the skinning section, you will se.

How is the png put in originally? The program that first puts it in -- you could make a copy of that and allow a custom png...

The png is put in via reshacker or another proggie,.

Example:
The bg png is 111.png
and the patch swithches this with your custom bg,

I think that the installer already changes the background, but stianu wants to make a MORE custom skin, he wants to give the user the possibility to change whenever the user wants it.

By the way, if no one scripts that plugin, you could make in the installer itself, a step where you could define the image that will be used to replace the background, of course it wouldn't give the same "custom" touch, but it would already be a huge step, you could use this as a temp solution.

Hi all!
Can somebody say, which program can i use to view RLE resources from WLM. After saving them as a binary file using ResHacker and changing extension to .RLE, i can't find any graphics editing/viewing program, that understands format of these files (most of them says that format is incorrect).
Sorry for my bad english and thanks for any help with this.
w/Best regards
