Title: Template/Skins
Post by: Demon Bandit Taumaster on April 07, 2008, 02:12:48 am
There are many templates/skins such as ANBU, Itachi, SasukeS...that change around colors. For example, grey will appear white. 

And in those templates, some colors won't appear at all and they'll appear a light-ish grey with no real color.

Is there a way to fix this?

I assume it has something to do with those colors not being "web safe" colors, so when in a different template/browser/Operating System, colors look different.
But what the hell do I know, I don't even remember when web safe colors look different.

no, you're right.

the issue is: if the background is black, white is a great color for the base.
if the next template has white, it's pointless to use the same color, so the colors change.

I am rather unhappy that `^ is often white, but originally it's yellow (it's the gold color).

I'd like to put all colours into ONE color file, and make the templates independent.

Though THEN some names or descriptions might be unreadable in some templates... as the colors there greatly differ.

Opinions?

Um, is it possible to make a CSS file to hold the color or something?

currently the css file holds all formatting things. including colors.

and as I stated, I CAN separate it. BUT then ALL will have the same colors, potentially making some skins unusable with the normal coloring.

Making them unusable because of the background?

Now I wonder, which skin has the truest colors? I mean the skin that has all the colors look what they're supposed to be..

if you give me some time, I will possibly change all colours back.

the first step (extraction) has been done in the hinata template.

The Neji looks like it does. And a few others that are similar to that.
