    Grand Theft Auto IV (v.2)

    I changed the style a bit to give the images more screen space. The original layout and coding was "inspired" by EkoPapers.com. Thanks!

    http://www.lollicupwaterford.com/Q/gtav2.zip

    P.S. Apparently some versions of WinZip disable the nested subfolder, so all of the images in the downloaded .zip file need to be placed in a folder titled "eb" and then moved to the Q and placed in the "Home" directory along with the gtav2.xml files and other default screens.

    Tenchistyle: While these are some great screens that u r producing, & many members are no doubt, very happy with the requests that u r filling, I as well as Eko, would appreciate it if u didn't share the psd files that correspond to her hard work. She has been recently made aware of your psd "template" sharing and has stated that u do NOT have her permission to do so. While its one thing to "borrow" HS coding, to make a HS for yourself or others, its another to duplicate another designers hard work and freely share it. You've only started to make HS's, so u might Not know, but there is an unspoken code of honor, NOT to duplicate one's style or particular HS verbatim. While both Eko, & I give u props for mentioning her for her coding & layout, She requests u to stop providing her templates.
    Thank you, & hopefully we will see some original HS styles coming from u in the near future.:smile:

    n99: U might want to pull the templates from these threads:
    http://www.everythingq.com/forum/q-...n-hermes-edition-themes-23337.html#post199810
    and also the Halo3 thread:
    http://www.everythingq.com/forum/q-home-screens-and-wallpapers/halo-3-theme-23477.html#post202205

    Eko, Im sure will be checking in very soon to weigh in on this matter. She has been very busy with moving and normal life that she has not had the time to check the forums, but she hopes to be back soon.:smile:

    WOW!! I definitely see your point, and obviously won't post templates anymore, but I really didn't think template sharing was as bad as this thread is making it out to be. I mean seriously, no one is selling this stuff, no one is really offerring to make themes for anyone else, so I figured the next best thing to do would be to create a template and let people have fun with it just like we do. I obviously recreated the template from scratch in Photoshop and then offerred it up so that people wouldn't ask me to make themes for them. I thought I was promoting the cause, not dishonoring the system. Lol. Seriously!

    If I had asked someone to make me a GTAIV theme, do you really think people would be jumping on to make me happy, or even use the images I wanted displayed? That was really the underlying thought of the template. If it makes anyone feel better, I didn't plan on creating any other layouts, my mission was to find the one I liked best and input my own graphics. I've made a bunch of personal themes using the same layout, and I give Eko a lot of credit for coding and setting it up. Although, at this point the only graphical aspects that remain the same are the upper/lower frames and arrows. In closing, everyone's creations are safe, and my apologies are offered up to the community.

    Depends on your phone, but look for a .png file, within the Windows directory, similar to the Verizon version (VZW_Calling.png), then create a 320x186 image, save it, move it over to the Q, then use Resco or Total Commander to overwrite the original image file. Be sure to save a back-up of the original image file. Ya never know!

    Actually, Eko does receive donations for doing these HS's, and people did pay to get these type of screens.

    There are multiple HS designers that are answering requests on a daily basis. Unfortunately, some do slip thru w/o being made.

    In fact, that is what most, if not all, HS designers here strive for. There are many requests that are fulfilled here using member supplied images.

    Thank you for your apology and I am sure that Eko will be happy that her hard work will NOT be taken away.:smile:
