Local Skins with Opera

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

  1. 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);
  2. go to ogame settings and change skin location to
  3. 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.

  1. just wanted to say that if you’ve got firewall you need to to allow web server to act as a server (this is pretty obvious :))
    On one computer I also changed default port from 80 to 8000 – sometimes change of port is easier way to make things work than configuring a firewall.

  6. Hi pucurica
    You don`t need to download the skin.You just copy the link and then just paste it into the skin path in the option menu.BTW i`m using that skin ATM.

  8. I use Apache webserver. It works perfectly with every browser, but without port address. Simply = localhost

    sintax “file:///my_path_to_skin” works with firefox, but it doesn’t work with opera.
