HP Prime Skins for FW 11226. (Version 3, with 3 different colors)
Hello!

I wanted to share this Hp Prime skins I just made, the reason I decided to draw my own skin was because I'm visually impaired and I was having visual problems working with the standard skins, so I hope you find it useful too.
Each package contains 3 skins, same size, different color.


.zip  01_Small Vertical.zip (Size: 248.94 KB / Downloads: 65)

.zip  02_Medium Horizontal.zip (Size: 407.04 KB / Downloads: 42)

.zip  03_Large Horizontal.zip (Size: 629.74 KB / Downloads: 50)
   

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:
Close the virtual calculator and place each file into the corresponding path.
example:
[Large_Horiz_B_Y.png] copy to...
C:\Program Files (x86)\HP\HP Prime Virtual Calculator\images

[Large_Horiz_B_Y.primeskin] copy to...
C:\Program Files (x86)\HP\HP Prime Virtual Calculator\skins

Now you open the virtual calculator and change the skin.

Enjoy!

RE: New HP Prime Skin! for FW 11226
Very good contrast of colors =)

The file was created with the editor of ERWIN?

How do I install it in the Android-OS version?

Hi, compsystems!

No, it wasn't created with Erwin's, the *.primeskin file was mapped and edited manually using the notepad from windows, and the actual image file was made in Inkscape (100% vectors), then saved as *.png.

Nice skins! I was able to easily import them into my mac version and they worked flawlessly. One thing I did notice was the approximate symbol on the enter key was missing. However, it still worked when using the blue shift key. Thanks

Looks nice, but I would recommend making the orange much brighter for better contrast. Perhaps either something closer to yellow would make it more legible on darker backgrounds (e.g. black keys)

RE: HP Prime Skins for FW 11226. (Version 3, with 3 different colors)
So I checked the code... I thought I had created a "Skins" folder in your <Documents>/HP Prime/ directory specfically for user skins. I discovered that the code was in there, but commented out (testing time was limited last nov/dec).

In the next version, all you will need to do is drop your skins/images into <Documents>/HP Prime/Skins and have no need to touch the system install directory. Of course you can put them them in the system skins directory instead, but some users might not be able to touch that directory due to lack of admin rights.

Hi Tim!
Yes you're right, without admin rights many people won't be able to use these or any other skin, it'll be easier to have a dedicated directory to put them there.
Thanks for letting us know it will be available on the next version.

These skins are absolutely amazing! I wish I had your artistic skills.

Did you ever make a Medium Vertical skin? That would be awesome.

Hello Jim!
I'm Glad you like them, I din't do a Medium Vertical skin because I'm waiting for the next FW update to make new skins.

Please let me know when you make a Medium Vertical skin. I think that would be perfect (at least for me). I did try to take your Small Vertical skin, open it up in Photoshop (which I'm not very good with) and enlarge it but it's just not that simple :-)

I have a bit of trouble seeing due to old age (62). A while back, I made some skins for my Prime but all I did was try to enhance the ones that came with the emulator. They're not very good.

Yours are amazingly clear. I have no idea how you did that.

Thanks again,
Jim

Hello!
Actually I made them because I'm also visually impaired, that's why I made them so clear.
Yes of course I'll let you know when I make the medium size skin.

The next FW update is now available ... hint hint hint :-)

Your skins are the only ones I use any more, thanks so much for your efforts!

Current skins will work fine. The only new thing is you can now have a "pressed" image if you want. If there is one, it will pull from that for pressed keys on key press.
