    [Guide] Custom Userbar - DIY (w/ resources)







    You have all seen these being used around the forum by a bunch of members, and @Gremlin takes requests for some pretty awesome ones: HERE!

    I'm here to share some templates and easy tips for making your own. I made mine in about :40 minutes using PS (but you can also literally use Paint) and EZGif. Photoshop is a bitch to use on my computer because it slows everything down.






    Here are the resources you can use to get started:
    Legend says that the font on the userbars was lost years ago, so new userbars have been created by pulling the letter graphics off of old ones...
    I'll be recreating the numbers shortly and add them. If you'd like special characters, I'm happy to create some, or try to make some yourself and share!

    I've recreated a copy of the font and userbar outline below for you to make things simple. Simply copy and paste each letter required. They have shaded transparencies, so they should paste properly:


    And here is the border:









    You can use Photoshop to animate, but my quick tutorial will be for EZGif, as it is much simpler! (The same tutorial can be applied to a program I've used called Animation Shop). I'll assume if you have computer programs, you know how to use them.

    EZGif is nice because it's browser-based, so no downloads required.

    First, you will need to create your frames for the animation. I have created my own by editing the pixel crown I made to move up and down one pixel. Each movement is 1 frame.


    I've put the specific steps in spoilers, as not to fill the page with non-sense. Use the tips you need!


    Post and share what you've made below!

    Thank you for this! Took me forever, and definitely very far from perfect, but I made one for myself!

    Great guide! Was able to make one for myself after much trail and error. Excited to try and make others in the future.
