Pues estube pensando en hacerlo pero luego alguien mas me digo que - queria tratar en convertir este concepto en realidad, I pues nunca lo acabo, ni tampoco salio como llo quisiera. Pero si bas a mi galeria puedes encontrar mi skin para "Borderskin" que realmente hace el tema de la description mejor. Pero creo que cuando tenga tiempo si lo ago yo mismo saco con mejores detalles. ;)

vi20 - my winxp died 3months ago - i just need to get it reinstalled - that's why i purchased a new pc - but, fortunately, i had saved most of my good stuff on my external hdd - so, alls good - i needed to upgrade to win7 anyway and i got a really good pc at a good price - so, i lucked out - i've been so busy with it that my hdd is just over half full at 50 some percent - i'll need to tranfer important files to external drive soon - i plan days just for things like that - maintenance stuff like that - so, i can focus and for about research and customization.

if the vs style isn't created / authored by you, i wouldn't be interested in someone else's work - it's not the same thing - every artistic spirit is unique to the person - thx for the suggestion though - it is good of you - glad that your working on styler and titlebar "borderskin" - take care amigo !!

I wasnt gettin nasty with you little boy..To be honest with you styles are like toilet paper everyday theres more of them and most will wind up down the toilet like yours!! YOU asked for comments and opinions its ashame your not mature enough to accept them. My point was NOT to critize but to help..And I cant believe Im wasting this much time on a child like you!! So good frickin rittence!!

its called being sarcastic man...I knew what you were talking about man...I have no worries...although I did mention thanks for the feedback.
Its just that
you said you don't like the white title bar.
also said that the blue bars don't go right.
even said that the Windows 7 buttons don't work with an Xp theme.

well they could by being able to tweak the themes out.like I mentioned "border-skins,styler tb, tt" can make that theme look better in a better res.

and I was not being a butt man...its just that you mentioned the same thing two time i think. maturity is not needed man.I didn't ignore your opinion nor the help you were trying to provided.In my opinion I thought it was good of you to do so.but having the same colors everywhere in the theme can cause it to be boring...thats why those color come in.

ok ,maybe you didnt understand what I was trying to say,let me make it simple..When you paint a room you can make the walls different colors but nobody paints one wall with a gloss paint next to a wall with a flat paint in the same room it dosent look right..Also using light colors on an xp style that is mostly dark dosent look right and will make the style boring and in my opinion ugly..And the window 7 buttons dont work with your style,,its not a windows 7 style..I so much wanted to see this style on my pcs but the way it looks right now Ill pass and move onto the next style...Thanks Anyway For Trying...:(

that's were Border Skin and styler tb come in you "douche"... let me make this simple for you. obtuse punk. the style will look great when its completed. although you may not like it others and myself do man...common. their are many other style with dark and bright color that do look good. just us finish most of the style and then give me your opinion and feedback...but for now that is only a concept.

Maybe its me but that white titlebar/captionbar just dosent work with your style neither nor does the window 7 close/min/max buttons,also why are you ruining a beautiful soft colored taskbar/start menu and explorer window with those bright blue bars? they should blend in with the softness of your style and I dont like any style where the titlebar/captionbar dosent match the taskbar color.Im not trying to tell you what to do but your the one thats asking for comments,Im just giving you my opinion because after looking at this on my destop the start menu is one of the best dark start menus ive ever seen,,the overall color and softness of this style is amazing to me..But adding those things I mentioned above is degrading this style...I hope when this is finished by you it will be right..Thanks!...;)~

!.well it was ment to be that way haaaaw.! joking

but yeah since the theme actually does go with all of it as It seems alot more professional...althoulgh you may think different just one or two colors can cause a theme to be a bit boring don't you think...but I'll think about it in another creation.dude. but yeah common the caption buttons man...they are clean man

"what-da-lla-tawking abutt.?".

thanks for the comment man...its good to get critics as I can improve on it you know

thanks man...but I have two persons working on the xp beta but with some experience...all I know its all on them.but you need actual experince in the field of customization theme creation

the apps are TGT-SOFT: Stylebuilder. for XP, [but you need stylexp] you can get it in the web easily since there site i think is offline. send me a message I can get the ones I've been using.

but for creating themes for Vista & win7 you need "Ave's Windows Style Builder"(WSB)
but since I've speak with the guy who has developed the application I think I really can't give you my old one even though I bought it and don't use it... but you can easily get it for €16.50 (that's about 22.50$ for our American)

Thanks you very much, I'll do my best ok ? :P and no it's ok, I'll just buy it myself if it worths it ( your talking about TGT soft style builder eh?
Thank you bro :)

but un "Windows Style builder" you can't edit Xp style as it then compiles them in windows7 .msstyle you need. TGTsoft Style builder for xp themes unless you use restorator,or resources hacker but then that takes longer and you need to use the code already inside the .msstyle...but I can get you all the software you want.
but the "WSB" is worth it if you want to buy it.=) for Windows 7 themes.

Just got myself TGT theme builder :D ( but whatever i can already do it with wordpad and restorator/resource hacker) But it makes it easer thought :P.
Might soon start win 7 theming if i get the time :P ( don't really use w7 too much and i'm satisfied with the themes on it already xD :P)Gonna try getting WSB then :D
Thanks for the support :)

well thanks let me know if you actually decide to make it for-real'. cause I have no experience in creating an xp theme. I tried it yesterday. and i just got frustrated...although if you decide to make it. I can possibly help in image creations.or stuff...but it can all be achieved under a .msstyle no addons. simple theme for windows why b/c I've seen ppl do it. with there own styles...=)

vi20RickrMetal12us Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2010  Hobbyist Interface Designer
well not really man...its just a manipulation of the start menu.their will be no search bar...the log/shut down buttons going to the right is simple to move with a tweak in the registry or even the theme itself...
