I think you guys should make a task bar and system trey to go with this, I would use windows blinds but it seems to lag too much when I try to do anything. But on a positive not this is one of the best themes I have ever seen.

This is such a sweet theme! But i was thinking about improvements, ... What about a Red orb that pulsates like this orb 2.0 ... Plans for a Red orb would excite me in the pants!

I think this is a really good theme but I don't understand why you should advertise it on the others theme's post!

Can't really use this I'm afraid - good idea but not very well executed, lots of graphical glitches particularly when clicking on the orb itself - and I share Lion Antares' view that advertising it on other skinner's themes (mine included!) is somewhat bad form
Comment #11 Sunday, September 22, 2002 4:53 PM
Ok well the graphics glitches are all fixed and the start bar is added !!!

Yet again i am sorry for the ads but i got alittle carried away. and i thought the artist could delete comments.

Ok Black Orb 2.5 will be released soon so PLEASE keep watch for it. it will be updated on top of this version. The "Orb Bar" will have its FIRST release with 2.5 and it very sweet. Yet again this couldnt be done with out the help of Snyper X.

Now were're talkin' here! One of the better DX creations to come along lately. Very, very original, and with the additon of the taskbar, this is one great package. Pat yourselves on the back.

First I would like to say that i really like the theme. I have a suggestion though. If you could support higher resolutions that would be great. I run at 1280x1024 and it apparently doesn't like that resolution very much as I have multiple orbs and it doesn't fill the screen. Great job though. Keep up the god work.

A DX I finally like!! BUT>>>> Whwn I click on the "Menue button, my mouse curor moves to the right and the XP menu often disappears??!?

Also, more bouuons along the "ORB" would be great... I'd add them myself, but I'm pretty lame at this!

Love the work!!

Sorry about the spelling errors.... I was in a hurry, and didn't bother to check... Hope the ideas are clear...!

Gorgeous theme

was wondering if a windoblonds skin is available to make the start menu match the theme?
Comment #19 Friday, December 06, 2002 8:27 PM
This theme is just straight dope. Very simple, yet the ability to expand. I'm also hoping for a 1280 x 1024 version as well as a 1600 x 1200 for us geeks who run at higher res. Thanks again and I hope when/if you come out with other res I can use the theme. Keep up the work though!

I just installed this theme and it is AWESOME!!! I, too, think this would be even more awe-inspiring if there were different color schemes one could install.
I await with bated breath.
