Really nicely done!

I would point out that you can now do this with any font, and no images at all...

Gheez! How did I miss that post :oops: Nice work as always! :thumbup:

I will look into how you did that, since I was considering switching from images to fonts while working on this skin. :17readbook

Thanks for the info, there's always more than one way to achieve the desired effects.

Gonna jump into your code now :D

The key is that the outside frame is in front, and the string meters slide "under" the frame and "off" the skin so they are truncated. Then it's just pretty simple'ish ActionTimer stuff.

Yes, I see that you used several action timers.

I just need to translate the actions for both digits of the hours, minutes, and seconds... twice as many action timers as you have. :D

And think about the graphics as sort of a mask for the numbers.

Back to the drawing board :draw: We''ll see what I can come up with...

That's really well done... :17good The fade effect is a nice touch.

On another note, the 12-step meeting was moved to Tuesday...

Thanks!

Yeah, I had to find an alternative to limiting the skinheight, so I decided on fading.

"On another note, the 12-step meeting was moved to Tuesday..." :lol: See you then! :17nodding

Just came here from a post, this is extremely minor, but in the 6digits/default.ini you might wanna add a AntiAlias=1 on that last meter. Other than that, I like it a lot! Good job :thumbup: :thumbup:

I use an inline shadow on that text and I personally think it looks blurred if I add anti-aliasing to it.

So thanks for the suggestion, but I'm leaving it as it is.

Glad you liked it otherwise, feel free to add anti-aliasing to yours. :17good
