Finally, after a whole night of skinning I'm proud to present this theme. Please test it :)

That skin is awesome! I could even imagine to have it as the official skin.

Thanks for all the compliments :)

I've discovered the first bug, when my HP hits about a third then the color becomes almost indistinguishable from the background. Rather replace my vscroll_grey.png with Irukard's, it's much nicer too.

I have also added a drop shadow under the main window border, I would like to do this with alpha transparency but then, unfortunately, gui opacity wont work correctly using software rendering (thanks Freeyorp). If there is a workaround to this, please let me know.

Looks nice, but your tab buttons suck, the text on the top is hard to read if it gets on the border and irus bars are better.

everthing else - great work!

[Tab buttons] It probably does, but it looks fine to me. The buttons were the hardest to do, and I made the tab's in the same style. I might want to redo the buttons in a different style, if you think of a better style, let me know (mossy stone's anyone?)

[Text on top is hard to read] - It's readable to me, but not how I would like it. I have spoken to the developers to improve skinning support for Title Bars, meanwhile Freeyorp submitted a patch to globally increase the window padding to a value specified in gui.xml which fixes the problem somewhat.
Aside from that, the jagged edges on the border is almost critical to get the bg_quad to suitably blend into the outlining wooden border, and I would most likely keep the theme in line with the official splash theme, though I am working on an experimental border utilising transparency effects, we'll see how that pans out.

[irus bars] Yes they are :wink: Thats why I've reused almost most of what he has done, 1) vscroll_grey.png 2) slider.png 3) checkbox.png

[everthing else - great work!] thanks! :)

edit: I've worked on a mossy stone button, is it better than the wooden set? Should I highlight the moss a little more?

This theme will be the default for the next release.

Per window transparency isn't possible at the moment. It would be easy to add, but would make setup more complicated.

I like the new gray buttons - but the window background sucks now - too green.

I did a button inspired by Wesnoth. Its not perfect yet, but I would like to know what the community thinks. Should I continue this? Perhaps another color?
