ill assume that means you dont need me to crop ?, and the size in 875 in the msstyle is bigger because it stretched when it was the exact size shown so i thought increaseing the size would fix the problem since i've read it stretches when the image is too small responding to your posts before xD, but yeah im a complete newbie when it comes to these software programing/editing images

Yo!

Sorry, it doesnt match exactly yet, many values have to be taken, and i will need more time to test other configs...

This is the actual result & the corresponding msstyle...

Sorry again, i will have a look a bit later, i'm hungry now, lol!!!

See ya & have fun!!!

ah thanks, do you need the cutted images? i recut them and they're all the correct size and stuff, and i did try to install my images myself, but then a problem occured on the right side again on the start menu where the image wont show itself so heres the images they'll match exactly if you dont mind helping a little bit more when you have free time :X, btw when i use your version without changing anything the right panel doesnt stretch anymore, but its in the wrong position completely, but im assuming its cuz our screen resolution is different?
