You sure? I'm sure it needs a lot of work. For example, the only way I could get a shadow was to overlay an offset white version of each token on top of a black version which I thought was clever :P but it doubles the code for everything! However, 5 mins ago, I discovered 'filter:dropshadow'  :-\

Going through and changing that now.

Ha, that is clever.  And possibly renders faster than the filter method.  :)

I think it looks nice and I'm trying to slowly make good on this ridiculously old effort to include more layouts with the software.

Well in that case... here's all the bits for 1024x768. I think that's it anyway. Included the font that I used, if anyone else liked it too.

EDIT: Filled in a couple of gaps in the background (couldn't delete the previous attachment - the lower one is the better one). The big spade can be easily removed/replaced if requested.

Corey,

http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=992
is a mod for what you're currently using for this forum. 

It's just a download system that will alllow registered users to upload, rate & comment on uploads.  Also has an approval process so you can control what is allowed with a simple review &  click. 

Something i've been meaning to look around & find for you since i bought TD2.  As i also would love to have an easy place to find new layout ideas & share.

The forum is still active, yes.

how do you get the layout like what Chris made?

Unfortunately Chris didn't "export" the layout, which would make it easy to import into your installation of the software.  So to make it easier I did that.  Now to use it do the following:

- Download the attached ZIP file

- From the Layout tab, press the Import / Export button

- Press the Import an exported layout into your Data Store button

- Select the attached ZIP file you downloaded

This will import the layout.  Next:

- From the Layout tab, press the Load button and select the "CustomLayout1024x768.tlo" layout file

That should do it.  Note that this layout is designed for 1024x768 and won't necessarily work very well for larger display sizes due to the fixed background image size.  However, if you're using the latest version of the Tournament Director software you can enable Layout Scaling and it should scale properly to a screen size that is the same proportions as 1024x768 (which most of today's screens are NOT, since it is 16x9 instead of 4x3, but with some adjusting should be able to be made to work).

Note also that Chris's layout used a custom font.  You'll have to download that from his original post, unzip it and install the font (just right-click on the .TTF file and select "Install").

Settings window -> Layout tab -> Preferences button (bottom left) -> Layout Scaling section.
