I am so sorry. But getting a bit tired of hearing this thing about 1024x768. There are a lot who still use that resolution and I fail to understand why it is considered passe. Resolution snobs!? I have to say I have met some here and they made a point of putting me down for asking for more 1024x768 resolution themes. Come on guys. You make it a bit of a downer for those who are not as "expert" or advanced as you. Make everyone feel welcome, not put down.

I'm running a dual 19" monitor display and while I prefer a 1280x1024 setting I'm now so used to 1024x768 after developing this theme that I almost don't want to go back. I found that there were a great many people looking for 1024x768 and so I obliged. I don't have specific stats to back this up but my money is on the premise that most people use 17" monitors and with the advent of flat panels the affordable? 15" monitors as well. I'd hate to squint at 1280x1024 on a 15" or 17" all day.

Kudos for sticking with a 1024x768 theme. I have a TablePC that won't do go any higher. You should hear the comments when people see this in tablet (landscape) mode and access it with the pen!

Sorry Vargen, If not in English, at least let me know what language you are using so I can find a translator.

Rich I've been using the theme for almost a week and I've had no problems at all. Great theme, great colours and an excellent interface!

I ran Vargen's comment through a Universal Translator and got this:

today wide midnight am arriving your fondness that perceive that the fancy if dej. Anything good will happen yourself clock imorgon. The tin be gentleness , out school , on msn , thus gentleness. Do yourself redo for the rush shock in till life. If yous am breaking this chain am arriving yous that poll k�rleksproblem 10 year bring out , if yous nots send the to least 15 Persian within 10 minutes

The Language is Swedish, but this is only a direct translation and i haven't figured out what it means yet.

Sounds like one of those chain letter emails.

Have you considered using ObjectDock as a taskbar for your LCARS+ theme? I'm also designing an LCARS theme and didn't find DesktopX's object versitile enough (No feedback for one thing).
Check out a couple of screenies @ http://rtsbasic.homeunix.net

In my opinion only LCARS graphics should be used for LCARS themes. You could do some cool effects with ObjectBar but i wouldn't use Microsoft or Apple style graphics, it just doesn't work! Cool looking theme can�t wait to see it

It is showing promise isn't it? If you need any help, let me know.

Hey, I want to run your theme...it looks great. But I keep getting a windows that continue to pop up with "Doh" Any idea how do fix it?

Which version of DesktopX are you running and which version of LCARS+ are you running? If you are trying to run Adam Solley's LCARS Federation Net 3.0 on a newer version of DX you'll get that message due to some older obsolete plugins that need to be disabled. I have not yet seen or heard of my theme presenting with that phenomenon.

Solution Design: It doesn't have to look Microsoft or Apple, for example in this theme there is a row of icons for the taskbar, fair play, but ObjectDock allows you to have the same, and much more interactive, plus someone could design LCARS icons for it to represent commonly used applications.

Post your request on the newsgroup stardock.desktopx and I'll email you to find out more about your issue. News server news.stardock.com
I'm still not sure about what you're seeing. I need to know which version of DX you are running and the name of the theme as well as the version. I'd rather do it via email so as not to flood the comments section.

anybody do something similar in Klingon!? Actually this does not work on my system, but that's prolly due to an older version (or the FREE one) of desktop X. Nonetheless, looks good no matter what.

I've not seen a Klingon version yet. That would be interesting.

It would be great if we could get this to work in 800x600. I have poor vision and need that resolution. Any chance of this happening..??

The problem with this theme is that it's resolution dependent and each graphic is designed to fit into a 1024x768 resolution, the most commonly used resolution at the time. If I were to redo the theme I would probably do it in a 1280x1024 resolution due to the popularity of that resolution today. It's a lot of work and I am currently too busy to do it right now. Perhaps after the new year I may take another look at it. May I suggest you upgrade your monitor size? If you are using a 15" monitor, a 19" would make a huge difference in your ability to see your work area.
