    7Zip is a free program and will allow you to open the RAR file and extract it. It can downloaded from here ---> https://www.7-zip.org/

    Thank you much good sir. Every other .rar extractor I was able to find before were very expensive. You helped me in a very big way. Awesome skins by the way

    No worries happy to help.

    The two big programs to use for archiving these days are WinRAR and 7Zip.

    WinRAR is a paid application but can be used for free you just get a pop up window now and then but you can simply close it

    7Zip is as I said is free to use.

    I use 7Zip a lot since it offers better compression but I have both just in case

    I see that you have fixed your issue with extracting the files. Are you still looking for a refund on your donation?

    Itch.io is new to me, I am not sure if you can message me on there. You may contact me via discord or email.

    I made a video tutorial to help people out with installing these custom skins: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TOHA8qL5FWE

    No way, very happy with your help and the UI skins. You deserve compensation.

    My wording earlier thing about that was partly in jest, but that never translates well at all in type.

    As the creator of the original BlackBird skin I have to say ... this is excellent!
    Great to see someone take up the torch to bring this into line with some (finally!) updated UI files.

    Rogue, would it be too much to ask if you could credit me somewhere in the files? As you can imagine the original skin took many many hours to get into it's workable state. Even just acknowledging what your skin is derived from in a header comment in the skindefinition.xml file, along with a link to the original Blackbird forum thread would be more than enough.

    cheers

    Glad to see you like my spin on the Much Loved Original!!!

    I've tried to give credit on the Sites I have posted the skins on, I can very much add a credit into the files themselves.

    I do like it, and can appreciate how much effort you likely have put in yourself to get this skin up-to-date.

    I really had hoped way back when that we'd see a proper UI layout system implemented in DDO, similar to what LOTRO has where panels can be modified and (for my preference) simplified. Also scaling of the UI would have been a major improvement for me as this is tricky to play on 1440p resolutions. As it is there's only so much that can be done with modifications to the images and I know exactly what it's like moving art 1 pixel here and there and loading up to see if that corrected a problem.

    So I toast your fine work *toast* and here's to many new players finding out about Blackbird through your effort

    (Appreciate that comment in the header, thanks for that.)

    Nice, any chance of a pink one that's a bit less Magenta? Or a rough tutorial on what to edit?

    It is complicated to make things in a lighter colour, it makes some of the text hard to see. Mainly the text in the character sheet, the white text colour gets washed with a brighter background.
    I will post an image after work, to show you an example.

    Edit:

    See it can be hard on the eyes, to have bright backgrounds. If you really want it like this, I can do it for ya.
