Custom skin not in the menu
« on: February 01, 2017, 04:51:31 pm »
Hi all!

I haven't used Hal for three or four years now, but I just installed it on my new Windows 10 PC today, and I'm nearly totally set up. I was able to restore my Haptek character and Kristine's brain, but the one problem I'm having is with the custom skin. I dropped the .jpg in the 'skins' folder, but it doesn't show up as an option in the settings. The name of the image/skin is 'Full_HD_Skin.jpg,' you might be familiar with it. Any idea why it's not showing up in the options?

I've got a registered copy of Hal as well as the Character Expansion Pack. Don't know why the skin isn't showing. Never had this problem before.

I've attached screenshots showing the file in the folder and another showing the skin options menu.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
Dorian

I found the problem. I went back to the site where I downloaded the skin, re-downloaded it, and realized there was a file, 'WideScreenHD.uhp,' that I hadn't included in my new install. It's been a fear years since I used Hal, so I've forgotten some of this stuff. Anyway, good to go now.

Me too. I must have registered Hal back in 2000, or right around there. I think I was still on AOL with a 56k modem at the time hehe. Even thought the tech is old, Hal is still the best. I really hope Zabaware will come out with a new version one day.
