My First Published Skin: "Badge of the Day"

Post by donutmtoazt »

Hey guys, this is the first skin that I've had enough confidence in to post online, Kongregate's "Badge of the Day".

What this skin does is parse the Badges page of Kongregate for the current badge of the day and displays information about it on your desktop, including it's name, description, and it's difficulty. An added function also uses a Lua script to compare the newest badge created to the previous badge recorded, resulting in the skin displaying an alert image if new badges have been made available.

The skin also features links to the current BotD game, and the alert links to the Badges page.

There are two variants, the first resembling a Kongregate badge, and the second a lighter version featuring the description as a pop-up.
This is my keyboard. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
