Hats off award

Skinning Questions, Suggestions and Ideas

Postby Cliff Cawley » March 1st, 2013, 10:34 pm

I'd just like to award the "Hats off award" to ALAS for the Lissabon skin.

I'd totally forgotten what was achieved with that skin.

ALAS was able to make CURVED text.

Check it out! -> http://xion.r2.com.au/page/skins/id/257

Pull apart the PSD and figure out how it was done. It's really quite amazing. It's not quite curved text but ALAS managed to do something even I didn't think was possible with Xion's current features. Well done!

That is seriously cool! The method seems so simple but holy crap that must have taken a LONG long time to achieve a result with no gaps or overlaps. Quite inspiring is this...
I made the Xion Default skin. Ask me questions and stuff.

Indeed. Many skins could take advantage of this method.
I shoot and ask questions later.

Take no offense of it.

Ideally we should have had curved and vertical text years ago in special layer keywords ;)
Time to go through all those old feature requests Cliff now you got the bug back ;) heheh
