    Hi guys,

    I am currently writing a ClickMania plugin and now I need to create some graphics for the game.
    Can you tell me which program should I use to setup the graphic files?

    If you mean gfx for the "home" screen ?!

    I have started to make same skin enhancement and I use : Adobe PhotoShop Elements 3.0

    It's not expencive, but neither a freeware/shareware, I'm not sure
    witch programs out there support .PNG with alfa chanel...

    Anyway if you know any program for photo/pic-editing try with that first !

    I would say, just take the program you are most comfortable with.

    If you don't have anything yet, then Photoshop might be usefull. In CVS there are the PSD (photoshop) files for B2 so you could use those as a starting point for your own graphics. But to be honest I haven't used it myself, but I know lots of people that love it.

    Personally I use PaintShopPro which suits my needs.

    If you are not an artist you might want to ask someone to make the graphics for you.

    If you are looking for freeware - look at gimp http://www.gimp.org/ it can handle .png graphics.

    Another freeware program you can look at is Paint.NET (http://www.eecs.wsu.edu/paint.net/) it looks like it is an up and coming program, it also supports .png (note this was written with C#) but it is a little younger than GIMP, so it may have more hiccups than GIMP.

    Have fun!

    VLC has a browser add-on that allows you to start a video selected in your browser in VLC, you then can use its record button. Doesn't always work though, my guess is it won't on protected vids but it is the only thing I have found other than the excellent download capability of Online Videos when available.
