the design style is very nice.. simple but clean and flat, without the edges and distractions of the normal windows theme and fancied up custom skins. Runs quickly. I hope you continue to refine.

I really enjoy this skin.. I'm really snooty about what windowblinds skins I like and this one definately made my top 10 list I think it's much better than 3 stars. AMAZING first try! I look forward to your future submissions

Although I personally wouldnt want to use an all blue skin, you did a great job on it anyway.

5 Stars.

When I highligh text, the font color changes to white. Would you mind changing the highlight color to something darker?

Here's what the window borders look like in Mirc

And in Photoshop

Perhaps it's the same issue with Eclipse?


Thanks for that post. I need these kinds of posts to help me refine my skins. The problem here is that I need to update the ui for non translusent windows. Until I can do that I would suggest putting a restriction on skinning those programs that you have problems with. You can do this in the Windowblinds Config window.

Thanks guys, maybe with this update I will get another star...

Well the update didn't fix it yet. Here's what it looks like with XP Format:


Now here's how it looks with Dogma by Brewman:


It's still not stopping me from using it though.

Also, is anyone else not seeing the thumbnail of this skin when browsing in the window blinds configuration? You might want to check on that RJ.

Those black tabs in the above screengrab get their colour from the classic colours, at present they are mostly black, a quick fix would be to import the defualt Luna style, and copy over the colour codes from that. I pinched the colours below from em3's Luna Element 5. They go quite well.

Yes, this would make it insanely awesome to me.

Okay...it seems that you want a smaller taskbar and titlebar. I have made a mock up, and it looks quite good in my opinion, so expect to see that in the next update.

The tabs have been fixed in the version that I am working on.

The the unfinished buttons have been fixed.

I have created a nicer loading bar...lime green

I will include the old task button with the skin, but not as a substyle...sorry.

Thanks for taking the time to help me out

PS: The screen shots really helped.

Edit: How do I fix the "no thumbnail" problem when previewing the skin.

Comment #39 Wednesday, April 26, 2006 8:00 AM
This is a nice skin, but I would personally like to see a standard start menu to compliment the compact one.

The update already has a standard startmenu. I just prefer the compact, which is why it is in the preview.
