Fixed. Good, thanks.
I hope you don't mind, but I still have a comment. As you probably know, WebParser became measure and an extremely good skin author as you, shouldn't have to use it as a plugin and especially not with those old style options (Measure=Plugin along with Plugin=Plugins\WebParser.dll). Now it is simply Measure=WebParser. This definitely isn't something which would prevent the skin to work, but would be great to slightly switch to the new format.
Otherwise congratulations. Great piece of work. :thumbup:
Good point! I tried to update all of the original code, but a few of the deprecated syntax made it through O.O

I will change that (although it will work either way :sly: )

BTW: I made a few last minute changes and posted version -B :lol:

Thanks! :great:

The Google skin is positioned a bit weird in the Layout.

Hmm.. I will correct. Thanks for checking :thumbup:
That's what I get when I don't check the layout file or test with different resolutions. My bad! O.O

Should be corrected... created a new layout and tested with several different resolutions.
I always hated forcing skins to specific screen locations, I guess I should have practiced that technique. :?

Thanks for catching that! :rosegift:
