RoyalFour Theme addon

Post by kof94 » Sat Feb 18, 2006 4:18 pm

Could someone help me make an addon for the RoyalFour Theme

The problem is, this theme has a group of Shellstyle.dll's contained in seperate folders denoting the different style names.

As I see it I need to edit the names to read concurrently (since you can't add ten Shellstyle.dll's to a directory) so I can cab them. I then need to edit the .msstyle to recognise the new names and\or locations.

Does anyone know how I can edit the .msstyle or is there an easier way?

Thanks.

**url fixed**

But all the shellstyles have the same name (Shellstyle.dll) so how would I go about cabbing it.

Should I cab them in the seperate folders.... how would I write the ini then if I did? I'd end up with ten folders in i386!

Help..... please :?

Have a look at the Tutorials and a look at other addons to see how their made.

Then if your still stuck ask specific questions.

Ok, I have a specific question.

This is a cut from Kel's royalemod.

Code: Select all

xblack_ss.dll = 1,,,,,,,901,0,0,shellstyle.dll
Does ,shellstyle.dll show a transformation? I.E. the file is copied as xblack_ss.dll to my source but copied back as shellstyle.dll during install.

If this is the case then problem solved, and I appologise for not opening my eyes in the first place. :shock:

Takes a while but I get there in the end. :wink:

That had to be done because many addons have multiple shellstyle.dll in them. If you kept the same name yours may get ov erwritten during integration. So you give it a new name but in that line it is renaming it to the name it should be and placing it in the directory specifyed. ;)

I've nearly sussed this so have removed the [Request] from the post. Also adding .theme and wallpaper.

If anyone wants this uploaded when it's finished just tell me how and where.

Cheers.
