Awww, no 8.5 skins.

Although I guess 8.5 has its own thing going for it.

I'm using 8.5 and the majority of 8.1 skins work, I haven't had the chance to beta test them all. I'll let you know which ones work and which ones don't, I'll make a list. But Bluesky, Vista, and ev0 seem to all work :).

Is it possible to use these skins and have a-patch installed at the same time, because i can't seem to get it to work.

Have you tried installing the skin, THEN patching your installation?
