Did try 2 add wall paper to yours using Freeskin/Xuit (sure simple mistake) but didnt work (anything I tried). :-(

Has been a bit since ive messed with one, but was a Metrostyle 4.0 I modded...if is too much to ask I thank you for your time and reply.

you need XZPTool2.0 and XuiTool !

A simple example:

- extract default fsd3 theme
- extract your fsd 2.2 theme
- copy all fsd2.2 theme files into default fsd3 theme folder (overwrite all except gamelist.xur gamelist_banner.xur gamelist_icon.xur gamelist_cover.xur gamelist_coverflow.xur)
- edit settings_content.xur with XuiTool to show up coverflow !!
- edit skin.xml for fsd3
- change/edit your wallpapers/png's, previews ...
- build new xzp
- copy to fsd3 skin folder
- restart, choose your new skin, restart fsd
- enjoy!

hope this help!

Thanks ALOT for this info and skin!! I am currently running this skin, as I work on "porting" the other one. My all time favorite theme!!
Thanks again 4 everything!!

Thanks a million for the info, was trying to port Metrostyle 4.0 by you and idefix, but am having no luck, crashing on boot (if it boots at all). Thanks again, Im at a loss tho...guess im still too big of a n00b to port to FSD3.

try the following:
1.compare default 3.0 and 2.2 skin with FreeskinApp.(especially all the *.xur files). it will let you know which files are modified/updated from 2.2 to 3.0.
2.modify/update the different files of customized 2.2 skins accordingly. (with xuitool, notepad, etc...)

P.S. i am not making/customizing any skin, but that's the way i think may work...good luck

RE: MetroStyle v3990

@ 2Ceedz

Can you upload the port when you succeed? Metrostyle 4.0 by idefix is my favorit theme too but i can't get it to work with fsd3.
