      Download:
      --> SkinChanger.exe (Version 2.05) (ca. 380KB)


      Installing:
      1. Download the SkinChanger programs (see section Download)
      2. Start SkinChanger.exe
      3. If you already have a Skin folder then click "Yes", browse to that directory and select it; otherwise click "No"!
      4. Look for new skins via "right click" -> "Check for Updates" or use the shortcut "F5"


      Setting up the PartyPoker client: (example for english client):
      • Table Options->General Options: "Enable 4-color deck"
      • Table Options->General Options: Uncheck "Display charakter/player image on table"
      • Player Image->Classic Table Characters: "Classic characters"
      • Themes->Card Decks: "Default"
      • Themes->Table Themes->New Table: "Default"
      • Themes->Table Themes->Classic Table: "Default"
      • Themes->Switch Table: "PartyPoker classic"/"New PartyPoker"



      New skins & own skins:
      Just link to your new skins in here and I'll add them to the map pack if there are 3 or more people voting for it. Alternatively you can put the skins in the skin folder(s) on your own.

      In case you want to create your own skin you can follow these steps:
      1. Copy all images of the PartyPoker client that you want to modify into a seperate folder
      2. Now modify the images as you like
        a) if it is a classic layout, name the table "carpet.jpg" and copy the "table.png" from another skin (its just 1pix transparent png)
        b) if it is a modern layout, name the table "Table_Carpet.jpg" heißt
      3. Move this directory into the Skin folder (with respect to the skin folder structure)
      4. Restart the SkinChanger and install your new skin


      Version numbers:
      X.YZ
      X - Program architecture changed (+features or bugfixes)
      Y - new Features added (+bugfixes)
      Z - bugfixes


      Source code:
      --> (.au3-Script) Source code of Version 2.05
      --> (.au3-Script) Source code of the Zip-UDF Thanks to Torels UDF
      --> (.au3-Script) Source code of Funcs
      --> (.scm-Script) Source code of the Gimp-Script to convert old card sets


      Disclaimer:
      I did what I could to prevent major program bugs, but I cannot guarranty freedom from error. Use it at your own risk. What I can guarranty is that I wrote the code by myself (except AutiIt-Scripts and included scripts) and that I am hosting all files on my webspace.

      Hey!

      Thanks for the great Software! It really works fine!

      But I have a little problem with the "dark" table backgrounds:
      the tournament info (blinds etc.) script is in black in the upper left corner. So you can't see it on a dark background. And I didn't find an option to switch the color of this script!

      So maybe you can add this function - if possible - to the next Version!? :-)

      Thx a lot!

      bye
      :D

      Had the same problem (you probably also play some sng/mtt), so JS already explained me what to do, skype me: vbzgskype for explanation.
