Curtains
I have read through this thread and didn't see this already asked, so....

Is there any way to remove the curtain from behind the slide button, but keep the curtain behind the date and time?

These buttons that you guys are creating are amazing! I am stubbornly trying to create my own based on the instructions from the first post, wil show when finished.

I WANT to have the curtain behind the date and time , NOT behind the slider. The second post tells me how to customize the curtain behind both, remove it from both, or have it behind the slider only not the date and time (through the S2U2 settings) the exact opposite of what I am trying to do.

Thanks for trying to help anyway, eyecrispy.


I finished making my first slide button. I am sharing it, because it is the least I can do.

S2U2 and S2P
I have another question, and this may have been already asked, is it possible to have a different slider when S2P is active on S2U2, as to when it is not?

Just rename them slide.png & copy them to Device\Program Files\S2U2\gfx folder.

One request: have you .tsk file matching rose glow theme for S2U2?

POST 2:
Customize S2U2 Slider button
Customize S2U2 Curtains

Here I will tell you guys how to customize the "slide to unlock" text animation.

1. The Animation file is in \Program Files\S2U2\gfx Folder named "slideanis.png"
2. It is made up of several slides of images of size 112x12 pixels(IMPORTANT), each placed right next to the other.
3. Its like the GIF animation but the images here are placed in a single image.
4. The resulatant file can be of any width but a multiple of 112, the Height should only be 12pixels.
4. You can also make customized animations like I did.

Creating animations using only Paint & Irfanview

Designing Frames:
==============
1. Open Paint.
2. Goto Image --> Attributes(Ctrl+E)
3. Set Width to 112 & Height to 12(If values are altered thing will go hazy). Choose the pixels combobox in 'Units' group.
4. You will get a 112x12 pixels white page.
5. Zoom in it to make designing easy.
6. Design a frame to be used in the animation.
7. Save it in BMP Format. I recommend using any naming convention. If Saved in other formats quality will be decreased.
8. Got the first frame, now create each & every frame to be used repeating the steps.
9. Save all of them in BMP format.

Of course: Instead of designing frames u can use any image just resize them.

Designing Animation:
===============
1. Open IrfanView.
2. Goto Image --> Create Panorama Image.
3. Choose Horizontal in the 'Directions' group.
4. Click 'Add images' & Choose all the frames u wish to use.
5. Adjust them 'Up', 'Down' as you want them in the animation. Top frame comes first & Bottom frame comes last.
6. Uncheck 'Insert file name into image'.
6. Click Ceate Image.
7. Save it in PNG format.

PS: Animations play really fast if only one unique frame is used once, In the Loading animation I got 12 frames, each frame was used 3 times repeatedly, to make it slow. i.e each frame was added 3 times.

Use Them:
========
1. I recommend to backup the \Program Files\S2U2\gfx folder.
2. Rename the saved PNG to 'slideanis.png'
3. Copy it to the \gfx folder.
4. Run iLock2 to stop S2U2.
5. Run iLock2 to rerun it.

That's it, Design your own animations & Share them here.

Have a look at a couple of mine:


Here's how my S2U2 looks like:



'll post the screen shots of others later.

Unzip & Copy 'slideanis.png' to \Device\Program Files\S2U2\gfx

Hey Man, R U able to do that?? I found it in google images. The zip is to unlock.
