Throbber's

I was wondering, where can I find different, or how do I make the lil Throbber.avi movie clips that play in KM? I have an animated thing I would like to use, but it's not avi.

Also was wondering...I can make a skin now, but when I download an already made one, and look in the folder, all of the back.bmp are real small strip like looking, and when I save an image, and convert it bmp, it's huge, and doesn't look as good.

1.) Near the bottom are 2 links to conversion tools.

Wikki contains some
extra Throbbers.

2.) AFAIK they are redone often until one looks ok.

Back.bmp can be small. K-Meleon will repeat the pattern.
The sizes are AFAIK matched to that the PLL could easier make e.g. gradiants.

They can be also big when needed.

The biggest back.bmps I know were created from a Tang-dynasty painting.

Yes, No doubt: Tang-dynasty is a lineage of Chinese emperors and the whole picture too large. grinning smiley A black an white version was used with a Maxton skin. It is a perfect painting & great cultural heritage.
