InD 06 v.1.03 by Nascasho Designs
A skin for MSI Afterburner.




I am presenting one of my most complex designs to date in a form of a skin for MSI Afterburner from one Enthusiast to another.

Designed initially be easy to read, yet pleasing to the eye.




To install:
-Drag and drop the .usf file into the "Skins' folder within MSI Afterburner's installation directory.
(usually C:\Program Files (x86)\MSI Afterburner\Skins)

The original design had the red button, but it looked kinda tacky so I just left it gray. But there's always room to improve/change some things around.

Btw, I'll be updating the original soon since I ended up finding some slight flaws from people sending me some screen caps. They've been fixed, will consider your red button request though.

Will do, and I've done a newer button.

Coming from you that means a lot, I hope you'll like the juiced up version a bit.

Since you're here though, I keep running into issues as to why the colors I choose for the graphs don't show up right. Like for example, and Nvidia green would look like an aqua blue. Like the web colors I choose in Photoshop don't show up the same on the graph section. Dunno if I'm doing something wrong or what.

Yeah, after a while I think I was too sleepy or something, I was mixing the values up... fail me. Lol.

Should have the new versions up really soon, double checking everything is where they're supposed to be when pressed etc. I always seem to miss something small.

EDIT: Updated OP.

Nice! A few comments though:

- I'd spread clickable area on whole <Apply overclock on startup> text, right now clickable area is too small. There is a on implementing that in the skin format reference guide:


4. Common skin creation hints and tricks


1. Clickable area of skinned buttons and sliders is defined by associated alpha channel bitmap pixels, absolutely black (transparent) color identifies non-clickable areas. Knowing this fact, you can make any desired control area clickable if needed (even if the area is invisible) by setting alpha channel to close to but not equal to zero values. For example, Apply overclocking at system startup button in default MSI Afterburner skin adds button caption to clickable area using this trick.


- Driver and graphics card names seem to be alligned manually to make them look centered on ATI 5800 hardware. It is not the best idea, because on NV cards driver/card name strings have different length (e.g. short "GeForce GT 220" instead of long "ATI RADEON HD 5800 SERIES") so the text looks seriously misaligned. Currently the skin engine supports automatic text alignment by left/right edge only, but I can add alignment by center in new version, if you wish.

Hmm, I'll fix that clickable area thing asap.

As for Hardware / Driver thing, i thought this whole time that it was centered, lol, woops. Adding alignment would be a good idea for next version, but what I'll do is move it to the left side this time around, no need for the alignment feature.

This is by far the most amazing skin I have seen for MSI after burner.

Good job man. If you could make an even more light weight version that would be awesome.

I can't get over how good this theme is. Having done intensive work in graphics design your execution is almost flawless.

MSI should really use this as the default theme and get in contact with nascasho ASAP.
