Are the subSilver buttons not mostly the same as they are in 2.0? And of course, you'll also need this for the "secret style", which I'm sure they won't release before the actual style itself is released.

It is *almost* the same. :)

It uses the same image pack... with just a few additions.

Is no official pack as this version isnt fully released yet. So you have to do with the phpBB2 image pack or nick the imageset of the phpBB3 beta version. (which is almost the same).

The point of the SDK is that it has .psd files (Photoshop format), with text in its own text layer, so creating a translation is as easy as retyping the text in your language. Having to take the actual images is no good for that purpose. But again, I haven't really heard why using the 2.0 SDK is impossible, other than "the style is different". Well, that can be seen by just comparing area51.phpbb.com and https://www.phpbb.com, but the point was that the actual images are the same. Or are they?

Edit: OK, they are similar, but not the same. Most noticeable difference is the font used.

ooh... I had not noticed that before...
They are just a tad different.
Guess I did not look close enough.
Although, I created an exact replica of the buttons used on phpBB3 (such as type font, and styling etc)... if I can just go find the topic now... :?

EDIT: Okay... here it is, for creating your phpBB3 buttons in Photoshop, sortof a mini-tutorial.

You are quite right, I do recall Paul stating that the font was now Arial on all the buttons so that translators could translate without having to buy a triplex license or have to find someone with one.
