Appart from some Magic Pink showing on the Start Menu (of non-XP systems), this is a very well done skin. Thanks, Paxx!

Very nice paxx. Any chance I can get that wallpaper to match?

Comment #3 Wednesday, December 19, 2001 1:09 PM
Sweet skin. Two things - header bars could do with having white text rather than black, and the taskbar doesn't really match the tray if you have it more than one button high (for us poor people on 800x600 with lots of apps )

Oh, and why isn't it a UIS1+ skin? Could be faster, stronger, more compatible . . . *g*

Great job paxx! I love the taskbar. Can't wait to see some more XP skins from you. iWIN maybe?

Nice one I especially like the taskbar....

TheGreenReaper: I have it set so the headerbar is tan and white (mouse-over), why is it black and navy??? I check over and over and I can't see what's wrong!
As for the taskbar on two rows... hum, I'll see what I can do, it has a patern and it's hard to make it tile, I'll see what I can do.

Davad70: Thanks. I think I'll do the iWin skin next.

Silverado: yes, as I said in my description, you can download the wallpaper on Stronghold' website:

MadIce: transparency in the Start button isn't supported on non-XP systems? Dang! I'll try to get that fixed. That sure is something that needs to be fixed.

nice work, is blue gel getting the xp treatment?
Comment #12 Wednesday, December 19, 2001 10:13 PM
Why thanks treetog, I'll take all the compliments from you I can get, they're worth gold.
Aussie, blue gel? Wassat? Do you mean iWin Blue? If so, I will proabably work on an updated version of iWin Spectrum.

I can't wait for iWIN XP Paxx. I used it almost all the time before I got XP, but had to let go...can't wait to be using it again.

thanks a lot for the skin.
everything is cool, but I think you can revise the folowing:
1.titlebar looks too short for me on 1280x1024, cant it be a little bit taller?
2. The buttons on the taskbar have seperator black lines on right, but nothing on left. This makes the first button look odd, since it has a seperator with the second button, but nothing with the quick launch bar. uhm, could I explain it? ) if you want I can provide some shots for what I mean.
3. The mouse over shadow for selected taskbar buttons looks odd. it looks like it is pressed on the top right corner. It looks like a broken button, more than a pressed button to me.

These are just some details, otherwise your skin is wonderful. Thanks a lot once more!
