Dimmer

It dims screens. Set it to Stay Topmost and Click Through. If you want to change its opacity, open dim.ini and change the value ImageAlpha. Make sure it is between 0 and 255, as 0 is completely transparent and 255 is completely dark.

Nice!

I made a similar skin a while ago, but there didn't seem to be much interest; Dim-WIT might give you some more ideas. :)

Made a similar skin although a little more fleshed out.
I wonder if you have the issue where holding down shift to highlight text or resizing image in Photoshop seems dodgy.
It's like the mouse is fighting the skin for topmost "rights". idk

Example:
1. I click at the end of a line.
2. I hold down shift.
3. i click at the beginning of the line.

Desired behavior:
Line is highlighted.

Current Behavior.
Mouse cursor returns to normal.
And when i click at the beginning of line, text editor window is taken out of focus,
Almost like i clicked on the Dim Skin. (Even though it is !ClickThrough)

When i set the skin update interval to 16 (Which is the fastest possible) and click REALLY fast at the beginning of the line, i can highlight the text.
