Hi,

Does anyone know how to create those old brown metal effects seen in
an old game called Wall Street Trader 2000 with Photoshop, please?
Thanks in advance.

Hi, alextr2003fr,

Links for good interface tutorials:

I posted a few of those because your example had similar design.  Those links above can be combned with texture overlay to vary the look.

For making a grungy metal texture purely with PS:

But, as I had said, you could do any of those shapes and use an overlay of a texture image (assuming you can find a grungly rusty sort of texture you might like).  To help in that area, here is a spot that offers free textures:
