How do you change skins on Magenta4?

Post by H3O2 » Sat Sep 08, 2018 5:43 pm

I just installed Magenta 4 and the Blueskin. Couldn't find an easy way to switch between skins. I uninstalled and reinstalled to make it work.

Is there an option somewhere? I can't seem to find one.

Thanks,
Steve S.

The blue skins has the extra word “SKIN” - MAGENTA4SKIN.N2S while the red does not - MAGENTA4.N2S.

To switch between skins, just add a number like MAGENTA4SKIN1.N2S and it will default back to the red skin and if you want to blue skin, remove the number :)

Worked as you described. Cool part is I kept some effects blue so I have a mix of skins. Looking forward to the upcoming GREEN skin. :mrgreen:
