So we're running the very same version of WB... but the skin displays fine on mine, and I haven't heard of anything like this so far (no other user of the skin mentioned such a bug...) Did you try to restart your computer ?

I also had a problem with the task bar beind a little weird. I have the latest version of the free windowblinds. If you notice the shrinked AIM bar as well in the upper right hand corner, theres a piece missing out of the bar. Not a big deal but i wasnt sure if it was happening to everyone. Otherwise i love the skin! good stuff!

I really don't know why this is happening...
1 - Did you try another skin with per-pixel transparent taskbar ? (like DreamLand, for instance) Is there the same problem ?
2 - Did you choose "skin decides taskbar size" under "User Overrides" in WB config ?

I have a problem with the upper-right corner of maximized windows not displaying in per-pixel skins, but I'm quite sure it's a bug in the beta, as it's the same with any per-pixel skin I use...
Never had your problem though...

I love the theme, but the start button ugly. 5/10 because of the start button.
Good job.
Just a shame that WIndows BLins 5 isn't available yet.

Ever thought about Buying it...? You could have the Beta version running for a few weeks now.

Heya again.
Yes, I have restarted and I am using "skin decides taskbar size". Also I have been using skins such as Dreamland and 5imple Alpha fine.

However, things have gotten worse now. It seems now that if I use any WB5 skin the taskbar doesn't skin at all - it just remains as Windows Classic style - but with the new skin's start button. Older skins (i.e. non-transparent) still work fine. It seems there's still some bugs in the latest beta.

uinstall restart and re-install.

Sorry to say that, but I prefer if it's a bug in WB... as they sure will fix it soon !
I guess xgman's right : you should uninstall, restart and re-install a fresh version of WB. Hope it will run ok then

Looks interesting... I like the design concept. But one thing that kinda bugs me -- the size of the borders. It seems so large. Is the compact version just with compact start menu or does it also come with a thinner border? Would like to be able to use it with a thinner border (and standard size Start panel). Anyway, it looks good.

or does it also come with a thinner border?


It doesn't : thinner borders are incompatible with the shadow effect on the border in this skin.
Just a question of visual balance.
Sorry mate

Very good! One little thing: the start button should be Vista-like. It´s personal taste of course, in my opinion it doesn´t fit with the rest of the skin, wich is, again, GREAT!

the start button should be Vista-like


Could you be more specific about "Vista-like" please ? I'm not sure I get it right...
Actually, I'm planning to re-draw this button, so I'm open to any suggestions.
Thanks for your feedback.

With a ´Vista-look´ i meant a startbutton you see in the ´Arrow´-skin. It should look a little more ´professional´ when you compare it with the rest of the skin! But again: it´s personal taste

2 questions, first off, in the preview, i noticed the borders were transparent, but i see them as solid... as well, things like the taskbar/start menu, is that really transparent, i mean yes, u can see the background behind it, but if you happen to have a window behind it, u still only see the background behind it...

Hi Yoni45 !
in the preview, i noticed the borders were transparent, but i see them as solid...

I guess it's a problem with WB5 Beta... maybe you should re-install. The borders should be transparent as in the preview.
if you happen to have a window behind it, u still only see the background behind it...

1 - The start menu is "really" transparent : you should see anything that sits behind it (may be the same problem as before...)
2 - As regards the Taskbar : its transparency is only fake. i.e. you can only see the backround through it. This subject has been discussed somewhere in the forums here.

I really like this skin but found the minimize, maximize and close buttons so inconsistant
and frustrating that I had to stop using the skin.

Instead I use your blueglass alpha PEL skin.javascript:editor_insertHTML('ucSkinCommentForm_comments_txtBody',' ')
javascript:editor_insertHTML('ucSkinCommentForm_comments_txtBody',' ')

You simply seem to have checked the "Never use per pixel borders on a skin" checkbox in the "Troubleshooting" section of WB...
Uncheck this and it should display fine !
