    I was wondering, has someone made a tutorial on how to make a custom windowskin for MV or if there is an in depth explanation for what everything in the Window.png does?

    It would be in the help file.

    In the menu, under Help.


    But don't worry looking there - I just checked it myself, and the MV documentation on the windowskin is dismally lacking.


    If you happen to have Ace, look under help (same thing - menu > Help > Contents or just press F1) and go through RPG Maker VX Ace > Reference Material > Resource Standards > Window Skins.



    A is the top left quarter


    B is the bottom left quarter


    C is the top right quarter


    Now divide the remaining bottom right quarter into quarters itself.  Of that group,


    D is the top left quarter


    E is the top right quarter


    F is the whole bottom half


    In Ace, A was stretched to cover the background, and B was tiled.  I'm not sure if MV is the same, or if B is also stretched.
