    Hello!
    Anyone interested in trying my new skin for RivaTuner with Windows 11 Dark Theme, I share the download here.

    (Need to set "skin composition mode" to "layered with alpha").

    Unfortunately, RivaTuner apparently has a serious problem with skin support when using skin composition mode in layered with Alpha. When trying to select skins that have different sizes, loading gets corrupted. Opens corrupted or is very slow and sometimes does not open, in these cases it is necessary to force restart the program to work correctly.

    Issue confirmed, I'll fix it in the next beta.

    Also please fix SkinBase in all of your skins to make them work in "layered with color key" mode properly. It is not the best idea to force "layered with alpha" mode usage as the only option, considering that it is more performance hungry. It should be optional only.
    "Layered with color key" mode support is easily achievable by NOT specifying alpha in SkinBase and filling transparent areas with solid color matching with color key.

    Hello!

    As needed, I made some corrections to my skins to improve compatibility with skin composition modes.
    Now in "layered with color key" and "traditional" modes the corners are square. Rounded corners are only visible in "layered with alpha" mode.

    New update with improvements and fixes. Includes 8 color options for Dark Theme (Blue, Green, Orange, Pink, Purple, Red, White and Yellow) and a Light Theme for Afterbuner and RivaTuner.

    Hi amymor,
    You also need to change SkinBaseAlpha.png (SkinBase.png and SkinBaseAlpha.png must have exactly the same dimensions), because if someone loads this skin in "layered with alpha" mode, Afterburner will no longer open and will enter an infinite loop of invalid loads which can only be undone by changing the MSIAfterburner.cfg file in the Profiles folder, specifically in the "LayeredWindowMode=" line which must receive the value 1 or directly in the 'Skin=' line which should be named to another valid skin existing in the main "Skins" folder.
    Or since there is no need for semi-transparent pixels in this skin, just solid colors for straight corners, you can simply eliminate SkinBaseAlpha from the header file entries, eliminating need for a compatible alpha base.

    Man does anyone know why my power slider is suddenly greyed out for seemly no reason at all?

    I have a factory overclocked 104 A chip & i've always been able to adjust from 0-106% on power but the other day i fired up my pc & it was greyed out. Tried DDU, old drivers, new drivers, clean win install, even reflashed my stock vga bios again...nothing. Still greyed out...have no idea why.
