This came in as a comment on the Custom Skins for OGame article. I figured it was important enough to publish as its own article.
Local Skins with Opera
- You can use local skins with opera this way: – install web server (recomended Abyss web server – only 250kb download); put your local skin folder in htdocs folder where you installed web server (example: C:\Program Files\Abyss Web Server\htdocs);
- go to ogame settings and change skin location to http://127.0.0.1:80/name_of_skin/
- refresh/relogin to ogame
NOTE: This same method should work with Firefox as well (or any browser really). I haven’t yet tried it. I use a hosted skin from the default list that OGame provides.
