Meekskin is a Shadowbane interface skin. It modifies the chat, status bars, group windows, track window, etc., for a simpler and less obstructive gaming experience. You can also create your own status/selection window by arranging your health/stam/mana/xp bars, nation/guild crest, target name/rank/hp.

Meekskin 4K: MOBA Hud, SWAHbars, Social Dashboard, and Minimal selection are shown.

3/19/2021 – 0.95.3 – Fixed: Powers with text did not show cooldown when dragged out to screen.
2/25/2021 – 0.95.2 – Minor update: fixed ‘Preferences’ window crash.
2/20/2021 – 0.95.1 – New Update

  • New Color: Azul Oscuro
    Skin was updated to have a darker blue tint. Have a better color in mind? I’m open to suggestions.
  • Mall option added to menu
  • New MOBA HUD created
    Main HUD
    Shows player health, stamina, and mana. Integrated the hotbar and common shortcuts. Text: reads your inventory gold, frames per second, and ping.
    Profile HUD
    Top: shows player name, level, and class.
    Bottom: shows defense, weapon attack rating and damage.
    Center: player pictures that you can choose to import. Default pics are included.
    Picture size is 230 x 170 in game. For a better view double the size of the .tga image to 460 x 340, it comes out cleaner and sharper. Each set has 3 pics: default (pic#a), mouse over (pic#b), and clicked (pic#c). TGA files can have transparent layers/backgrounds. Photoshop wisely, young memer.
    Actions HUD
    Stances (must select your base class type or else they don’t function), traveling stance, and other common actions.
    Targeting HUD
    Shortcut to targeting keys, can ‘ctrl+left mouse click’ to bind each key.
    Mini Map HUD
    For to have
  • Social Dashboard window has all the social emotes in one window with bigger buttons and text (button is draggable).
  • SWAHbar was updated to include a background theme for each class.
  • Minimal Selection window added for a slicker look.


4/4/2020 – 0.91 beta – First test release

What’s in the 0.91 beta?
It’s the original Meekskin but larger for higher resolution gameplay.

  • Modified the default color (looking for feedback or new color suggestions).
  • New Arcade 2.0 status bar.
  • New SWAHbar (Selection Window and Hotbar) window. This bar is more newbie friendly.
  • Restored the original Selection style windows and renamed the default ‘Selection’ window in Meekskin to iSelection.
  • Added ‘Chat Window Max’ to maximize usage of window. Only one special type chat window of each option can be use. Multiple instances of the original ‘Chat Window’ can be opened.
  • The Inventory shortcut in the Quick Bar Vertical window now opens the correct window (oops).
  • Switched the ‘eQuip Inventory’ window to horizontal display from vertical.
  • Group window: changed the buttons to icons and moved them to the bottom. They disappear when transparency is increased.

How do I install?
Before launching Shadowbane:

  1. Download Meekskin_4K.zip, do not extract, to the ‘Skin’ folder in your Shadowbane directory.
  2. Launch Sb
  3. While in-game press escape to bring up the main menu. Click ‘Settings > Interface Skin > “Meekskin_4K”
    Once loaded you can hit escape and go to Meekskin for some added functions.

Can I really play Shadowbane in 4K (3840 x 2160)?
Yes, I recommend playing in windowed mode (non-fullscreen). The mouse will offset vertically but you can fix this by removing the window title bar (top bar). There are programs that remove the title bar from the game window. I use the Borderless Gaming app, which can be purchased on Steam or downloaded for free from sourceforge or github.

My mouse is invisible when I load Shadowbane, how do I fix this?
I don’t think it’s related to playing in higher resolutions, but it has happened to me when I had an app that reduces blue light from my monitor. The app f.lux disables my mouse pointer in Shadowbane, so check any program that might also cause your mouse pointer to disappear and disable it or exit the program completely while you play.

What if I find a mistake or an error?
If you find a mistake/bug please email me ‘meek [at] sinistersabotage.com’ As long as I am still active with this project I will address the issue.

Please note: the Pet window makes Shadowbane crash whenever you push the pet commands without an active pet. It’s a known bug in Shadowbane and not the skin itself. You must have an active pet or else it will sb.exe.

  1. This question is for Dr.Meek, (hypothetical) is if the infamous Marz would play SB would Dr.meek bring back SS?

    1. Changa! long time no espeak. I hope life is treating you well. If ever there was a time to play Shadowbane again it would be now because the population is actually thriving. Sadly, I don’t have the dedication to run a guild. And before you ask, no I cannot powerlevel you, I don’t even have any R1+ toons 😛. At the hours the steambane server operates makes it harder to make time for sb, especially when it crashes unpredictably. But it’s all up to you to give it a go! You can do it, crazy chango style! Go chango unchained on them noobs. ✌️

  2. Hey I was wondering how can i edit the selection arrow color (the ones that are around the object you click on)? Im blind and cant see them cause their so transparent

    1. Hi, if you are talking about the 4 arrows that appear when you select a character, building, graves, etc., I believe that file is buried in the Textures.cache file and cannot be changed. I also want to change this because it becomes difficult to spot the character’s location when targeting. The only option I’ve seen that controls this is in the ArcanePref.cfg file as SELECTARROWS= TRUE. Maybe if enough people email Shadowbane support [shadowbane@cyou-inc.com] about this we can have it changed?
