Tape mClock Skin by chrisbanks2 Tape mClock Skin by chrisbanks2
Tape mClock Skin

Got bored of job searching, so decided to have a little play on Photoshop.

The .zip contains the two style of Tapeclocks shown, both with the option of a background of your choice, shown down the left.

The TxClck Style is the clock on the left, the Simple Style is the clock on the Right.

Instructions:
• Install mClock from the market.
• Create a folder in the root of your SD card called 'mClock'.
• Extract the .zip content into this folder.
• Add mClock widget on your homescreen.
• Hit "Xml Template" in the mClock settings.
• go to /sdcard/mClock/TapeClock/TxClck Style or /Simple style and select desired .xml file.


Credits:
•The image came from ScotchTape Mod for CAD by kingdomsephiroth:[link] , which is also a port from a guy called ale03, but his DA no longer exists.
•The xml for the TxClck Style came from here: [link] hence the name.

As there are a fer few variations, and I haven't tested them all, so its likely I have slipped up with a name or two somewhere, if so please let know so they can be fixed.

Template:
Here is the .psd so you can make your own custom backgrounds: [link]
It would be cool if you shared your backgrounds in the comments for other people too use, if you wanted too.


Here are some more backgrounds [link] made by laursifer [link]

Enjoy.

Love this!! Great work as usual!

But quick question: Is this for HDPI screens? I have an HTC TBolt (800x480) and when I insert this as a 4x2 size widget it appears somewhat blurry...

The background images are 204 pixels wide (due to the source of the tape and frame image), so I guess any size over about half the screen width may seem a little blurry then.

Maybe it could look blurry by mClock decreasing the pictures size if it is smaller that 200pixels wide, but thats just a guess..

Here is my first collection for Chris's mclock skin, which is my favorite mclock skin everrr. Most of the image-based ones obviously look best on a plain/subtle background. The solid colors are all at 70% (transparency). As requested in Chris's post, I'm sharing them... I'll have a lot more and will continue to add them to the same album on my imgur account.

How do you get the background png to show up? I can see it in the folder but it doesn't appear behind the clock widget.

Try following the instructions fully. Namely the directory: /sdcard/mClock/TapeClock/

it would be perfect if the right clouds animated (live wallpaper, only the clouds). Can you you this?
