My friends, I've gotten my Old West theme for C&C to the point of being usable/testable. My intent is to use it with the free/extremely cheap Go Fer Yer Gun! rules available on DriveThruRPG. It's mostly done right now, except for a few known minor items (below). If anyone would care to download it and take a look, I'd appreciate any feedback on problems you are seeing or things that just look dumb.

You can find the extension here: Dr. Venture's Old West Theme 1.0b1 download (http://www.acornheads.com/CnC_Old_West_Theme.zip)

The download is a zip file - (the ".ext" didn't want to download correctly). You can either extract teh zipped files into your extensions folder, or put the zip file directly into your extensions and change it from a ".zip" file to a ".ext" file. I dunno if it works to just leave it a zip file.

Here are the known issues:

Mini windows haven't been themed.
Some of the stylized header text is too wide for the space it's in.
The frame around the Encounters photo is kinda weak.
The title of the Modules window isn't connected to the graphic it's supposed to align with, so resizing the window causes the text to misalign.
The 2nd text box in the Modifiers window is still bright white.
There are probably quite a few of redundant files in the extension. This is a port of another ruleset that I had created, and there are undoubtedly a bunch of graphics files that I included that need to be removed yet, so hopefully the extension will get a little smaller when it's done.


Any feedback you can provide would be appreciated - I'd like to stamp out any stupid bugs before I consider this done and "release" it. Thanks, and happy holidays!

I should note: all of the changes in this theme are cosmetic - I have done nothing that should affect the ruleset's game mechanics/functionality. Go Fer Yer Gun! emphasizes the optional C&C rule of having both Primary and Secondary stats, in addition to regular stats... so there should ideally be an extension to modify the SIEGE rolls and the functionality of the check boxes to allow for them to be tristate (maybe a star for Primary attributes, a '+' for secondary, and an empty box for regular attributes). Perhaps I'll tackle that at some point, but it's not in this update.

maybe post in another forum as well as this is only C&C and although your theme/extension requires C&C it will appeal to others? ive got boot hill *somewhere* but ive never actually played it...
