this theme will load from boot if DX is set to load at boot...allowing the theme to fully integrate after logon...and it will shut down the computer from the shutdown interface. basically its a total GUI....


best run at 1280 res.. other resolutions may not have good results..


the shutdown reload terminal is a shut down utiliy.. it will shut down the PC not unload DX..


screen shot is a compilation of 9 of the many interfaces.each interface is full screen.....




Lcars Computer net 5.5 use layered wallpapers as the backgrounds for the objects/buttons etc, (each Background constitutes one interface and Lcars has 9+).. to switch res would misalign the positioning of the objects in correlation to the Background.

A possible fix would entail. taking every part of a Background image and turning it in to its own object then aligning it with the corresponding buttons etc..not an easy task as Lcars already has multiple layered backgrounds each with many Buttons/animations. Currently 300+ objects if I remember correctly...


with the current build of Lcars most of the screen at 1280 is full. to try and squeeze it in to a smaller area would not be possible, as elements would either be pushed off screen or stacked on top one another..It could be resized for larger res but that would be at a time when I would have more free time than at present..

thanks for the comments all:)


rric1 the base images are layered wallpaper images with button and animation overlays, as a result the theme is stuck in size 1280x1024. i tried resizing the base images but they were so unclear it made the theme look bad... and since I am just updating anothers works, I must keep in the original artists spirit of quality. believe me if the theme wasent in full page layers and the resizing kept the same level of quality graphics i would certainly have made a few different res builds...

To this day, this theme is THE most unique and powerful example of a DXTHEME that is out there. It's quite a refreshing change from the usual.
You've done a fantastic job with it.

Now... I'm gonna start customizing it for a TabletPC that I have. It's going to impress the hell out of some people...

Paradigm shift! Paradigm shift! Paradigm shift!

This is unreal. A new threshold in DX themes has been reached. Awesome work.

I do have one question, though. When will the Users Guide show up at Amazon.com?

Very impressive!  I too am a little dissappointed that resolution problems are an issue. I understand it may be too much work to make this theme for every res possible. Me having 1440x900 and lower widescreen resolutions can be a royal pain at times when trying these themes. Anyways, love your efforts, keep it up.

All I can say is that from the screen shots this looks awesome and while only available in one resolution at least you've been upfront about it I do get fed up with a lot of these themes only really being suitable for 800 x 600 and just not saying.

I use 1280 x 1204 and while say 1600 x tend to shrink down ok 800 x 600 is just to grainy to survive being enlarged.

Incredible. I once denied being a trekkie but must now humbly admit that once one alters ones computer to looks like a console one has at that point arrived. All that is left is to don a uniform and begin attending conventions. In any case, excellent Desktop Theme. By far the best of the LCARS themes out there. I think the only problem is the lack of diversity in screen resolution but still, excellent.

to configure the shortcuts like Docs etc.. you should be able to right clik on the button and a menu will appear.. in the menu it will hae a select target option. clik on it to open the change target windw and select the file/folder you wish the shortcut to open...

if it dont show a change target option in the dropdown menu then go to the DX systray icon and right clik and start DX builder.. from there try the above steps.. it should work there..
