    Hey I just wanted to post a guide to creating your own personal TTR (TapTap Revolution) Skin/Theme.
    It's really a simple method... Since there's no complete guide on iPTF
    EDIT: Oh and if any mod see/likes this please stick it.


    1. First off, you need to have Wi-Fi access as most on this forum do. You need to have a program such as CuteFTP Pro or WinSCP or however you can access your files on your iPod/iPhone.
    2. Permissions need to be set of course... most programs require this also... if it hasn't already been done.
    3. Once you have CuteFTP/WinSCP/etc. open, open the folder /Applications/TTR.app.
    4. Copy each PNG into a file folder on your desktop or wherever you can keep track of it.
    - - PNG file information --
    * Each PNG file in the folder represents a different feature on TTR


    Perfect : This represents the PERFECT visual that appears once you hit a note perfectly.

    Redglow : This represents the glow when you hit a note on the red line

    Spark : The glowy things that appear in the beginning when you select a song. Those "fireworks-looking" thing.

    Sparkle1 : Note appearance.

    Wrong : The FAILURE visual that appears when you miss a note.

    Whiteglow : The bar that flashes each time a note passes at the bottom of the screen.

    Blueglow : The glow that appears when you hit a note on the blue line.

    Default : The menu background. When creating this the title isn't necessary because Menuback would serve as the title. Otherwise, delete menuback.png from the TTR folder.

    Background : The ingame background.

    Menuback : An optional file. It's not appropriate if you distinguished a title for the game on the Default picture. It serves as the title bar.
    Greenglow : The glow that appears when you hit a note on the green line.

    Icon : The icon on the iPhone/iPod springboard.


    Now that you have an understanding for each file in the TTR.app folder, I think you would get the basic understanding of what does what and what happens to what when you edit them.

    5. Each file should stay the file size ( x Length by x Width ). Edit the pictures or create your own pictures... do whatever you feel is necessary.
    Like I said before, the menuback.png file can be either kept or deleted... if you already made a title on the Default.png file, then the menuback file is not needed. Otherwise... keep it, and edit it to make it the Title.
    6. When all is done, make sure you have each file saved in the PNG file format, or else they won't work. `=]
    7. Transfer all the files back into the /Applications/TTR.app folder. Keep the files as the same names they were when they started, and simply overwrite the files in the folders.

    Basically you copy files off the TTR.app folder, edit them, and put them back. ^_^

    Make sure you set the permissions again when you put them back into the TTR.app folder...
    Try not to get the Default, Menubackground, and Background files mixed up, trust me... it pisses you off.
    Another thing, when you finished making all the files and you are about to put them back into the TTR directory...

    Warning: Make sure you delete the Menuback.png file if you didn't use it.
    DO NOT touch the other files that aren't PNG's in the TTR.app folder because I am unaware of what they do, they're probably the game mods and stuff.
