Again, very nice, but needs a few tweaks

Although it's a nice touch to see the logoff, shutdown buttons where they are, they don't work in that position when I apply the skin. I see that you have done almost all the classic colors (you missed the scrollbar background...unless that was intentional )

Overall, an elegant and efficient design. You may want to pay special attention to these details for a future update:

1.) In a maximized window, there is a dead space of about 1-2 pixels that needs to be filled.
2.) Per-pixel blending on the rounded corners would help.
3.) Instead of glowing buttons as suggested earlier, have you considered making the actual icon(s) IN the buttons glow? That's something I have not seen done well, yet.
4.) You may also want to consider including a sub-style that has a smaller Start button. Just for people who still like the "traditional" XP style for Windows.
5.) Consider people who also prefer having the Taskbar arranged at the sides (vertically). There are few, on average, but they MUST be taken into account.

So far, this skin is rating VERY high on my list of faves. I can't wait to see the idea pushed to its full potential!

This is a great skin except I am getting the magic pink on the MDI buttons

i've never been a fan of brushed metal, but this is slick! very tight. good job. It's smooth all across. You should take care of those corners, and add verticle task bars

This is a great skin and i can see why it took you very long time to make. I like the idea of turning Mac into Vista which is a brilliant idea. However, I am not using thin skin now, not because it's not good but there are other skins that i like better. For future realease, i'd like to see this skin has trasparant border, colored max-min-close botton glow (red? or following vista colors), colored start botton glow and 3D minimized bar.

Love the skin.

When I click on control panel, I get a error mesage.
Parse error '<' at line 1.
control panel neve pops up.
Then i change the skin to any other windowblind skin and it works again.
Am I the only one with this problem.

It is very clear that you spent alot of time on this. This is an awsome skin. I like uniqueness of the start button. But the only thing that I probably don't like is that the log off and turn off buttons are out of place from where they need to be. But it is an excellent skin and I can tell you put hard work into it. Good Job My Friend.

i like this a lot shame none does a roll up feature for these vista skins

If you go into your blinds program....User overides...Advanced settings....Click on the down arrow, you can add that feature to any skin...

I can't get the shut down to work on it..
Comment #33 Tuesday, April 11, 2006 11:05 AM
Great job on the skin, it's clear you did spend a lot of time on this one! Just a little more work for the rounded corners will really put it over the edge. Thanks for sharing this skin!

I agree. I hate jaggedies, sorry. Besides that, this looks like a slick theme, from what I can tell. I'll try it out and tell you what I think. It's definately something different for a change. Nice skin.

design is great! but missing the perpixel in the rounded corners.

Nice skin. However, I thought your color selections for Hilight and HilightText were backwards, so I changed them. In your default color list, highlighted items appear lighter -- grayed out -- than other items, which seemed backwards from standard UI behavior. So, in Skin Studio under Miscellaneous/Colors, I changed from this:

Hilight=245, 245, 245
HilightText=103, 103, 103

to this:

Hilight=103, 103, 103
HilightText=245, 245, 245

This makes the highlighted item stand out instead of dropping into the background.
