Menu Skinning Tip
For those skinning the menu as one file over laying the entire screen- you can use 1024h *1365w in your paiting program and then when you are done copy merge and paste it into a new document that is 1024*1024 and apply your alpha channels if you have them. This will help prevent stretching of words and make all your holes look round instead of elliptical.. the important number is 1365. You can make everything bigger if you want.. just remember the proportions.

-Use this document size for single full screen menu texture:

Height= 1024
Width= 1365

-resize when finished in a 1024*1024 doc. Save.

It is easier then to just make the texture at 1024x768 or something like that...
