[REQ] Sense 4.5 skin basics
I spend some time to figure out how to handle sense 4.5 skins development. BatEarsJoe give us some advices to modify a skin but these are the very basic steps to build/change a skin. Also I tried to find tutorials on other HTC devices but all I found are obsolete...
What I'm asking for is that somebody (and here I'm asking ckpv5, ayyu3m, BatEarsJoe and other developers too) to give more precisely advices on handle skins.
For example I used 'APK-Multi-Tool' to decompile a ckpv5 rom's skin and I recompiled that again without modification. The result: I lost transparency of dock bar, folders and so on.
So is anyone willing to give some advice about how to handle skins? I mean it is not necessary a step-by-step tutorial (this could take maybe much time), but at least some informations, advices, tricks or some ways to handle transparency, colors, link between m10 files and regular png files. There are more important advices that is about how to manipulate png files, how to preserve/alter alpha channel, compression to use, software to use to handle properly png and m10 files.
I respect guys (mentioned above) who wants to give us more skins but I believe that the development is too slow, so I think sharing information in this area is welcome.
Thanks in advance!
