I LIKE it skin. Thanks


Tip: Remove "Thumbs.db" and "pspbrowse.jbf" from your files and they'll be a LOT smaller.

Excellent work here. You succeeded in your minimal goal. Well done. The only thing you may have considered was skinning the logoff, shutdown, etc buttons... Other than that great job.

This blind looks nice and clean but it looks like a plain blue and grey/silver blind which has been regergitated too many times to count at this site. In fact it seem everybody and their mother is making a blue blind of some sort. Don't get me wrong though, this does look nice (But I can do better)

This is really quite nice. Good job on this Orion. While it's true that there are many blue and gray themes already, I think this skin holds its own very well.

I'd really like to see something better than this by you Saddam Insane.

Thanks for everyone's comments.

Graypony: Thanks, removed now.

Old Sapphire: Yes, you're right. I did take a few minutes and reworked them to fit a little more appropriately into the skin. I have no idea how it looks outside of SkinStudio, all my systems at home and at work belong to a domain, so I don't ever see those dialogs.

DrDrrae: I don't even know what shell styles are. Plus, considering my record at updates, you can expect support around June 2005. Seriously, I'll look in to it when I get more time.

Sadaam Insane: It’s been some time since I’ve seen a skin library as extensive as yours: http://www.wincustomize.com/skins.asp?authorid=1055697

Nice skin Orion,
I liked the first version you did too,
these styles are my type of skin.
But alas for some reason your old version and now this new one
when rolled up and moved, bluescreens my computer.
Occasionally the odd skin comes along that does this, even on a different PC. I wonder if anyone else has this prob.
Anyway Great Skin, love the style.

Hey your skin looks great. Like it! But unfortunately when I'm using a chat program and someone sent a message, the window does not flash and you have to open the window to check if they sent a message. I hope you could fix this. This skin would be perfect it it does!

Delta Jockey: I'm sorry, I've tested it on two different systems and no problems here. I have no idea why it would do that. I will try and investigate as time permits.

polgas1999: Fixed now. Thanks, I missed that because I use ObjectBar and ObjectDock with no taskbar on the screen.

Simply beautiful. This one is definately staying for a while on my comp

But... (you all saw that coming, didn't you?)
Menus with icons (e.g. the one you get if right-clicking on the desktop and ing New...) are almost unreadable - looks like some sort of outline effect. I've tried modifying it in SkinSudio, but I can't find where it is defined. Someone please help me...?

molbo: Neither of my WB systems exibit the issue you're having. I've checked with a few friends that have WB, and no problems there either. I'm afraid that this is another one that has me stumped.

Hmmm... Guess I'll try to do some local experimenting then

BTW: Here is a sample screenshot: http://home.c2i.net/baskop/coldsteel_strange.JPG

Anyone else experiencing these artifacts?

Hey Orion, do you have the updated version(w/ flashing window)? I would really want to try this updated skin, it rocks.

Comment #17 Tuesday, April 13, 2004 11:32 AM
polgas1999: It was updated yesterday...but you either have to remove the previous version before opening the WBA or download and manually extract the WBA over (replacing) the previous directory structure.

Comment #19 Tuesday, April 13, 2004 9:08 PM
@molbo: try turning off "TrueType" in your displaypreferences. that should fix it. i had this 'effect' only in IE-favorites.

by the way, nice skin
