Mane6 Fighting is Magic Steam Skin by Falxor Mane6 Fighting is Magic Steam Skin by Falxor
DISCLAIMERS
This skin was created by my volunteer. No compensation was given or received by either myself or Mane6. This skin is distributed free of charge. No donations are accepted for this skin either intended for myself or Mane6.
The original artwork of Mane6 for Fighting is Magic is not contained within. The artworks are cropped and resized, and thus only partials of the art. I will not distribute the original artwork that was used in this project.
This work is only connected to Mane6 because the art used within is theirs. It is not controlled by Mane6, as I am not directly affiliated with Mane6. If I receive a request by either Hasbro or Mane6 to remove this, I'll oblige without hesitation.

--------------------
Important Note
Because of the limitations on the current level of design in the Steam Skin, there is about a quarter-second to a half-second delay when you open the Steam window before the images load, outside of Fluttershy. This delay does not exist when you first open Steam, but instead when you open the main window while Steam is currently running. This is because they are drawn onto the UI, whereas Fluttershy is basically imprinted onto it. I tried to imprint each one onto the UI, but, because of said limitations, it didn't work. My apologies.

--------------------
This skin was fun to make, the most fun out of all skins I've made so far. I won't be surprised if I don't have as much fun making other skins than I did with this one. The subject matter is awesome, as well as the content of the skin itself. Not only that, but I got to do some pretty fun tweaking of the layout on the steam window. In addition, actually having correspondence with Mane6 made it even better: It was with their permission that I made this skin with their artwork. I used twelve colors here, all of which I nabbed from their two banners: "Fighting is Magic" and "Mane6." I hope everyone likes this skin at least as much as I liked making it.

The reason they are where they all are is because their posture and personality lent themselves to the idea behind each one. Fluttershy is behind the Piston because, well, she's Fluttershy. Rainbow Dash is in the upper-left corner because she's dropping down in a sort of dive-kick, and a top corner would be perfect for her. Applejack throwing a lasso like that really makes a lower corner perfect, seeing as it can be seen as her being ready to throw it at just about anypony here. Rarity seems to be looking more at the viewer than anything, so right behind "you" in the lower-right corner works well. Pinkie Pie just fits so perfectly in the lower-middle because she's balancing a cupcake on her nose. Twilight was put in the top-middle because that was all that's left, and it still worked pretty well.

An awesome, instant-fave Steam skin! The new Steam updates do tend to break some of it but I have a slightly fixed version with Fluttershy in the top right-hand corner, the emoticon button on chat and the mane6 image in the chat background amongst a couple of other tweaks. That said, there's still a fair amount of other stuff to fix...

Just download, extract it to the Steam/Skins folder. In Steam, go to Steam->Settings, and, in the popup, go to Interface. There should be a dropdown menu about halfway down the page that says "Select the skin you want to use." Select the one you want and restart Steam.

hey i don't suppose you could upload this as a template and have the images as boxes? was going to use this as a template and change the images but you done the ponies in such a way that my images get cropped to the pony shapes

Well, I'm not fully sure on how to get that to work. In any case, the images are all about the same size as the 'Piston' in the upper-right corner. You could easily tweak the images you want in there to work with the size constraints. If not, it could probably be tweaked to allow for larger images, but that would take a bit of editing and altering in order for it to work properly.

well i dunno what happens but i took a quick screenshot of 1 that i tried to edit and this happens sta.sh/01bj684f5nqy :( you can see that it follows twilight outline somehow. the image size is fine its just that that is happening x.x would be nice if there could be some nice simple blank templates to edit but i cant find any around which is a shame

That's weird. If you take the image that's there from the beginning and make sure there's nothing left, and just have that new image, it shouldn't show that outline. Restarting Steam would refresh that sort of thing. If that's not helping... I have no idea. It's strange.

that worked deleting the image and making a new one the same size has worked. also don't need to tweak anything to extend the images along the bar since i just need to extend the rainbow dash one to like 50x3 ^.^ and then edit that one so yay i can make one now. you must've had some kinda mask on the pony shapes

There already is at least one, and I have a couple requests in line at the moment for when school is finished and I've managed to get back to fixing up the "out of date" ones. I'll look into doing it, though.

Well, the updates for all my skins are ready (going to postpone a couple while I work on colors and the like), so a majority of them, including this one, should be updated on March tenth at some point. Just need to get screenshots and re-upload them all again.

You misunderstand :). I didnt mean your other skins are to bright. A couple other people in here made some MLP Steam skins and theyre so bright its blinding. One persons Fluttershy is so bright, it actually gave me a headache lol.
