    Go to first page on this thread for detailed instruction on how to edit the template file.
    I use Resource Tuner to edit template.

    Unfotunately, doesn't work for v20.1, v20.5 or 20.6, etc. And doesn't allow us to make skins like Adobe Black from FL 12.. we'll have to break VMProtect 3 if we wish to do this one day.

    Lol, I totally missed the fixed 20.6 post between christmas and new years eve.
    Will try to update all the skins from 20.5 to 20.6. Also probably got a way to extract the resource data from memory
    to be able to skin further updates. Will see if that works easily (and no I'm currently not able to unpack vmp3).

    That would be amazing! Not sure how far along you are on it yet, but would your memory method expose the RC Data for skinning of the sequencer steps and channel glow/borders?

    From the way I understand it, VMP3-protected data in .DLLs is unpacked to memory at runtime. I was about 15% done recreating Adobe Black for FL 20.6 to share, until it hit me that the most iconic aspects of the skin - the blue steps and channel accents, aren’t possible. Hoping that this new memory method may yield results!

    So I'm confused about something. If none of us are able to get past vmp3, then how are you updating the skins for 20.6? When I try using a resource tuner, the files still all say unreadable, even after patching.

    FL 20.6 is skinnable, as have been the previous versions (we even have Midnight Black for v20.5). Only certain elements - such as the ones I mentioned above in the step sequencer, the sample browser, and parts of the mixer, among others - are protected.
    See r4e's post here. As for how - here. A simple explanation, but probably best to not get too into all the behind-the-scenes stuff publicly.

    For those of you having troubles with skinning: make sure you're using a suitable version of FL (20.5 build 1142). They may not work on other versions. Also, some of the elements still stay unskinned because of the protection.

    I hope FL moves to a dongle and then allows themes/skins. Its the only way to purge the user base of undesirables.

    That's kinda weird. I struggled myself with making skin work properly, but the problem was solved by simply moving to that exact version. Can you upload screenshots of how it looks now?

    The browser, mixer, and step sequencer steps cannot be skinned on 20.5 (only the outer wrappers/windows of the mixer and browser).

    Not sure if @r4e is already on it, but I am working on updating Adobe Black for FL Studio 20.6.

    And to the Image-Line employees reading this, we are no longer altering your .DLLs as was done in the past. This means of skinning works differently and is not tampering with any of the program's files, so please don't go out of your way to block our only hope of customizing the program we love. I own my copy of FL, and have forever wished for vectorial coloring customization in FL 12+. From the looks of it, it would be quite simple to provide us with a panel to override the color values. We understand that you wish for your program to appear the way you want it to (for marketing purposes probably), but why deny us the ability to simply colorize it to suit our personal taste? By all means, I believe in piracy prevention measures, but that is why we've been asking for such customization abilities for so long. We would rather not take it into our own hands, but to use the official way. The last time we've heard anything about an official skin customization feature was two years ago in Feb. 2018. Have a heart <3 FL depends on its community as we depend on you. For the time being, I've been using Ableton since they have allowed skin customization since the beginning. The appearance of my DAW directly affects my creativity.
