This is very nice indeed. Any chance you could make a Sysmetrix and Rainlendar skin for this. Just a great job. Maybe create a WB skin for this as V F wrote.

This is outstanding. I never used OB until now. A WB skin would be exellent idea.

Thankyou all for your kind words, it makes the toil worthwhile

I will almost certainly do matching Sysmetrix and Rainlendar skins, it's about 90% certain that a WB skin is in the pipeline, and I'm currently three quarters thru doing a matching cursorXP set.

Can't find the skin you're referring to Balls...give me a link?

Pretty cool objectBar. I'd use it but i need sections that support 32x32 icons.

If you ever do an update for this pls consider that.

Thx Jeremy

I assume you're referring to the start menu? Actually they are 32x32 icons, albeit customized so as to fit into the orb shapes - it would make the menu too spread out to try and fit standard 32x32 icons into circles. However I'm sure I can include an alternative skin section with square or lozenge-shaped icon windows in an update. Thx for the idea.

Maybe the update where I include a third colour, which currently is planned to be...amber!

Actually I mean 32x32 icons for tasks on the taskbar. Thats my favorite feature of Object bar.

I dont need text for running apps, i know which icons are which app. I just need text for explorer/IE

Check out the pic to see how i use it.

Ok

container style #4 is suitable for what you suggest I just need to modify the mouseover and selected item images..

I'd have to modify some other skin settings to enable a dbl height taskbar too, but I shall investigate because I think your setup is a great idea

nice work, best satisfaction I have gotten out of OBar since first installed. In fact I run it now while OBar was idle for over a year, with Object Dock and DX2 filling in the gaps with just XP custom bars and window blinds skins. Was ready to go back to LiteStep till this. And I have learned much more about OBar posibilities modifying this nice piece of work..MORE please, and a similar version of this with real blue glassy insets..any shade..in grey frames would be wonderful

Thankyou for your comments Rexbo

I'm currently working on an amber skin for this (as well as some DX2 fill-in-the-gaps type objects), but if you post me a link to something containing the kind of blue you like you never know...

wait...you mean the blue I included isn't blue enough for ya?

Very nice skin. Where can I find the wallpaper file? Thx.

Comment #15 Saturday, September 20, 2003 8:36 PM
...coming soon

you could probably extract a wall from the GT2 logon come to think of it...it's not exactly the same but it's close

GT2 CXP cursors - http://www.wincustomize.com/skins.asp?library=25&SkinID=672
GT2 CXP bronze - http://www.wincustomize.com/skins.asp?library=25&SkinID=674
GT2 logon - http://www.wincustomize.com/skins.asp?library=26&SkinID=1721

ok enough of this shameless self promotion

o, did I mention the GT2 desktopX media player? Awaiting approval at the time of writing...*koff*

Nice use of Object bar, but dark colors are hard on the eyes of folks who spend too much time in front of a puter..looking forward to the amber one, very nice work

I would love to use this OB - I think its brilliant. However, the text is a little blurry on my system and smaller than that shown in the pic. This is probably my system - win2k @ 1600x1200. Looking forward to the WB.

glowdark - I like the dark themes, suits my mole-style existence, but the amber variant should be a little brighter

ozmars - you might need to install the dungeon font if what you see isn't the same as the screenshot, I will try and remember to include it in updates and mention it in the author's comments

Thx danilloOC, I'm a fan of your 3FX stuff, and in part you could say the confidence to make such a dark set of skins comes from your creations. GT2 windowblinds release getting closer...warning - it's a bit dark
