good new willy_297. Can you delete the horrible blue line who appear on the "blue skin" and who hid a little bit the mentor line when the window is minimized??? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif
This line was not in CM10th blue skin.
Maybe it will interest some people.

Hello, chessou!

That blue line from the Blue skin will be removed in the next patch. If you can't wait for it you can remove yourself in a few simple steps:
1. Open the Paint program,
2. Create a bitmap with 1x1 dimensions,
3. Fill it with the color 0x6a95ca in hexa or (106, 149, 202) in RGB space.
4. Save it as gradient.bmp
5. Copy the this file in the following directories:

If there are other skin issues, or you just want to build some new skins for CMGME let me help you.

thanks for your help,
for other skins issues, i will wait a little bit because for the moment my priority is to correct this problem of mentor line who make the game crash after the first move... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/bigtears.gif

u don't need to create a new bitmap just colorize the gradient bmp in each folder.
Thx lonut
have u make a new skin?
i want to colorize the border in game satus on the "last move" (the white rectangle).
Did you know how to do that?

11-14-2007, 03:45 AM
I've just created a new skin called Metal. It will arrive on you PC with Patch02.
For now you can't customize the color that points the last move made. The rectangle is white for default.
From Patch02 you should use "white_last_move_color" and "black_last_move_color" settings to customize this color. This settings are located in Skin\[SkinName]\Controls\global.conf file, the [color] section. The colors are in hexa e.g.

<span class="ev_code_RED">white_last_move_color=aef1ff</span>
<span class="ev_code_RED">black_last_move_color=aef1ff</span>

Just wait a few days. Bye!

11-15-2007, 02:02 AM
The lines you should modify are:
I repeat: <span class="ev_code_YELLOW">theese lines are ignored if you don't have CMGME Patch 1.2.0 installed.</span>
Yes. I work for UBISOFT. I'm a programmer.
