Thank you for creating and manage it.

I want to ask some feedback from the skinners out here for this new m2d version...
If M2DC isnt updated, I'm thinking of making the skin selector on my tool that:

- Lists all the file names from a specific folder.
- Renames them to zip and extracts the thumbnail preview from all.
- Lists them all as themes on M2Dr with image preview.
- Renames them all back to the previous extension.
- when a theme is selected it renamed the file to zip, extracts all the files to a temporary folder, removes the xml file (if its an old skin), moves all the files to the Windows folder and finally renames the file extension again.
- The current theme is saved as selected and the themes list is saved until the user decides to refresh it again.

M2DC uses zip files the .m2dct extension so that ppl dont try to install a zip without knowing how.

So that ppl from older M2D versions dont try to install our new skins (with much different files) by mistake I was thinking if changing the extention to simply .M2D or .M2DR what do you think?

edit: i found that i could uninstall themes in the remove programs menu so my m2d2 is back to working just not with a theme i currently want, haha

all you have to do is backup your m2d settings before you install a theme using m2d customizer and after you install a theme and touchflo wont start then restore your m2d settings with m2d customizer

Sound great Twolf, Right now most of our new "skins" only include the files changed from the originals. For older themes where one might go from one to the other (though my personal preference was to ALWAYS go back to standard first) themes tended to include all required files. Some ROMS make certain graphis files protected in the windows directory hence the need to use total commander to overwrite them. A new program like the one your proposing would make things far easier (for the end user at least).

The extension name doesn't matter, I'll use whatever you decide!!!

Bad news....
I've been doing some tests and the older themes sometimes mess up my M2D, even without the XML...

I'm leaving here the scripts I already made in Mortscript, in case anyone wants to pick up from here and start to concentrate on the new .m2Dr skin files.

These scripts can be placed anywhere for use, just create a THEMES folder in the same place where they are (with some themes inside it, hehehe).

For now it should also work on .m2dct files, but since it messes up M2D I removed the REPLACE FILES option.

This is only a test, of course, the M2Dr will use it in the background to refresh the themes list, change the themes path and installing a theme.

refresh_themes.mscr (creates a theme list and extracts the thumbnail from them for later use)
Code:
ShowWaitCursor
path = SystemPath("ScriptPath") & "\"
themes_counter = 1

if (fileExists (path & "ThemesList.txt"))
 Delete(path & "ThemesList.txt")
 Delete(path & "MortThemesList.ini")
 DelTree(path & "Themes\Thumbs" )
else
 MkDir(path & "Themes\Thumbs")
endif

ForEach xfiles in files (path & "Themes\*.*")
 this_theme_name = Part( xfiles , path & "Themes\", -1, 0 )
# The first list is for the M2Dr Flash, so that it can handle the variables, the other is for the Mortscript "install theme" script
 IniWrite( path & "FlashThemesList.txt", myThemes ,("&theme" & themes_counter), this_theme_name & "&END")
 IniWrite( path & "MortThemesList.ini", myThemes ,(themes_counter),'"' & this_theme_name & '"')
 themes_counter = themes_counter + 1
EndForEach
IniWrite( path & "FlashThemesList.txt", myThemes ,"&Total_list", themes_counter & "&END")

currentfilename = 1
While(currentfilename < themes_counter)
 this_file = IniRead( path & "MortThemesList.ini", myThemes , currentfilename)
 xname = Part( this_file , ".", -2, 0 )
 xextension = Part( this_file , ".", -1, 0 )
 Rename(path & "Themes\" & this_file , path & "Themes\" & xname & ".zip")
 UnzipFile( path & "Themes\" & xname & ".zip", "preview.jpg", path & "Themes\thumbs\" & xname & ".jpg")
 Rename(path & "Themes\" &  xname & ".zip" , path & "Themes\" & this_file )
 currentfilename = currentfilename + 1
EndWhile

HideWaitCursor
install_theme.mscr (installs the theme chosen from the list)
Code:
ShowWaitCursor
path = SystemPath("ScriptPath") & "\"

# This part will be handled by the M2Dr flash chooser, but you can change this number manually below #
# selected_theme_number = RegRead( "HKLM","\Software\M2Dr\","selected_theme_number")
selected_theme_number = "1"

if (selected_theme_number eq false)
 Message ("No theme selected!","Warning")
 KillScript( "install_theme.mscr" )
endIf

Mkdir (path & "Themes\temp" )

install_this_theme = IniRead( path & "MortThemesList.ini", myThemes , selected_theme_number
xname = Part( install_this_theme , ".", -2, 0 )
xextension = Part( install_this_theme , ".", -1, 0 )

Rename(path & "Themes\" & install_this_theme , path & "Themes\" & xname & ".zip")
UnzipAll( path & "Themes\" & xname & ".zip", path & "Themes\temp" )

if ( xextension eq "m2dct")
 if (fileExists (path & "Themes\temp\skin\HTCHomeSettings.xml"))
  Delete(path & "Themes\temp\skin\HtcHomeSettings.xml")
 endif
endif

Move (path & "Themes\temp\skin\*.*", "\Windows" ,TRUE)
Rename (path & "Themes\" & xname & ".zip" , path & "Themes\" & install_this_theme)
DelTree (path & "Themes\temp" )

Kill("\windows\manila2d.exe")
Run("\windows\manila2d.exe")
HideWaitCursor
