Here's a skin I quickly put together for iSolitaire. Sorry armadillo, these file sizes still aren't optimized yet. Download here and hopefully if the developer wishes to, can put it in his repository.

Very nice work kurosagi. I'll add this to my repository. Love the card design..
armadillo, yes there's cards underneath other cards and I don't think I'll be changing this. Makes the logic of the game simpler. I'll look at the image name thing you mention. I'm a java developer by trade so still learning the cocoa ropes.

Obviously the default decks will be packaged in the application bundle itself, but others we can set some common location for the cards.
What naming convention do you use with iSolitare? I haven't dugg into the bundle yet.

Cards are almost identical in size and names:
iS: 81x60 - iB: 80x60 (80x60 or 4:3 aspect ratio should work)
iS: 1x.png through 13x.png - iB: 2x.png trough 9x.png + a/j/q/kx.png (I would think that 1x trough 13x might be best, but it depend on who's code is more difficult to accommodate a new naming scheme; you guys decide).
Location of the card sets could be var/root/Library/PlayingCards/...
And finally, here's an alternative iSolitaire theme:

I'll initially reply here but maybe we should go offline in PM's so we don't bore the other folks...
I don't have a problem in standardizing card size and names. Size of 60x80 would work for me. I chose a width of 60 originally because I have a special need to fit 7 columns of cards on the screen without scrolling and them be large enough for dragging around. The 81 came from resizing and keeping the aspect ratio the same from the larger images I was using. I'd need some help fitting my existing cards into a 60x80 size as I'm no graphics wiz Regarding name I prefer 1-13[schd].png (1=ace, 11=jack, 12=queen, 13=king) as that's what I'm using now and I'd have to do some reworking to use another.. I imagine its the same for IBJ as well. At the very least if the size was the same that would solve alot of problems and the theme maker can worry about renaming which isn't too big a deal...
Regarding a common area for cards, this is where I have some questions.. My original goal for themes was a user would just install a theme, point to it via the options and it then displays. A theme is not only the cards but other stuff like the table (and I imagine IBJ has other requirements as well). If the cards are in a separate area what is the proposal to include the other pieces (table etc). I'd prefer that a user doesn't have to install a card deck theme and then an iSolitaire table theme for example. I'd rather have one theme install and then there's questions on who maintains what etc etc. Can we initially just agree on the size and naming convention for cards as a first step. This would allow anyone to create a theme for their game of choice by mix and matching cards between the 2 games and then supplying the other pieces required by each game (table for iSolitaire) as a single package. I'm open for suggestions but I think just standardizing on size and name would be a good first step...

I have the same concerns, about your second point as well. Lets do cards/names first and go from there.
I'll shoot you a PM so we can work this out over email.

This is finally two developers talking to each other. That's just so great. Thanks guys.

New version 0.6 available from my web site http://iphone.rustyredwagon.com. Other themes are also available from my web site repository. One of the main changes in this release is iSolitaire and iBlackJack have standardized on their cards image sizes so that you should be able to use the same cards in both games (helps you theme designers)
PS: kurosagi's theme is available from my web site repository (thanks for making that available)

The card size iSolitaire and iBlackJack agreed on was 60x80...

Heads up. I have a Touch running 1.1.12 and installed .6 from your repo. It looks like it tries to start but then lands on my wallpaper and that's it. I tried .5 and the same thing occurs. This wonderfull game used to work for me.
