I was under the impression that this was the situation:First of all you´re a bit wrong
(1) Colours ARGB are valid everywhere in MP except "splashscreen.xml".
(2) Colours #ARGB are valid in "splashscreen.xml", but nowhere else in MP.
(3) Named colours are valid in "splashscreen.xml" and everywhere else in MP.
Yes? (Note in passing: the A in #ARGB seems to be accepted in "splashscreen.xml", but ignored.)
People move on to other projects. Will any of us still be here five years from now? How many skins are still actively maintained; how many are moribund? (That is a rhetorical question; you don't need to count them. )As splashscreen is an exception to all (and also well known by all skinners), there shouldn´t be any need of any comment
And this thread has demonstrated that the Wiki cannot be relied upon to give accurate information. Sadly, inaccurate documentation is a characteristic of most programming projects. For programmers, the fun part is writing the code and getting a super-cool application to work . Documenting its internals is the boring part that usually gets performed in a perfunctory fashion, or deferred indefinitely.
