Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga

Instead of making a skin based on an old classic, I'm going to make a skin based on a new, instant classic. That's the good news. The bad news?
A. I haven't played the game yet, but plan to buy it this weekend, or sometime.
B. I'm having trouble getting screenshots. I tried downloading a rom, but it was buggy. Like, Super-Buggy. And not the fun little race car kind.
C. Because of A and B, I don't have many good ideas.
You can find information about the game here:

http://www.classicgaming.com/tmk/m&lss_pre.shtml

Check out what I have so far, it's just a little bit. Just to be ironic, feel free to complain about the two components I've skinned, or even about the Skinner's Atlas background. This is more of an announcement, but a little conversation would be nice.
...
I have to go buy this game.

Well, there's obviously not much to comment on, but that text they use is going to be hard to cram in there

You thought I was dead, didn't you?

Actual stuff!

I skinned the main window. Not many of the buttons, but now you have a whole layout to comment on. Now I just have to start working stuff into it.

Uber cool start so far.

That lightning bolt seems a bit plain and out of place, though.

I bought the game!

I bought the game but that doesn't help with the screenshots much. Thanks for the link Xeno, I've used that site for skins before but I didn't see that they had M&L yet. I'm not sure about these CButtons. I like them, but it kinda looks like they plan to battle the goomba by flapping their arms at him. It's more than a little hard to guess which button is which, so I may add labels. Questions, comments. Yes, I am aware that there are big blue boxes where the timer is supposed to be.

finish the game before you continue the skin...so you can use ideas and sprites that appear later in the game(like the surfboard animation )

ruud- A series of skins from this game, or a series of video game skins? I already have a crapload of skins from other games, including several Mario ones, check them out here: http://www.1001winampskins.com/membe...uthor_id=15239 if you like this one. The Zelda ones are kind of a series. If you meant a series of skins from this game, I could do another, but usually I only do one skin for any given game, to avoid redundancy.

I think the cbuttons, at their current size, clutter the skin up a lot. Otherwise, it looks great; the 3d look of it is great

Sow a thought, reap an action; sow an action, reap a habit; sow a habit, reap a character; sow a character, reap a destiny.

All my skins: @ winamp.com @ 1K1WS @ Deviantart.com
