Not a bad try but it needs quite a bit of work:

1) Steam's UI has slightly rounded corners in the title bar and borders.

2) The title bar is a bit too thick.

3) The font text color is currently set to light gray when itshould be black in some controls (for instance, as I type this, my font is light light gray on white which is almost unusable.

4) The inactive title bar controls are gray, not white.

Otherwise, it's a pretty good effort.

I agree with Frogboy. It's a good effort, but some details need some more refinement.

I'm a big fan of minimalist skin designs, but the Steam program's visual elegance is in both its simplicity and consistency.

Keep at it, buddy. You'll get there.

Not a bad go at it, ditto previous posters though. Take the advice, make a nice update , could make a great skin for Steam users if refined a little. �

Agree with Frogboy. DON"T BE DISCOURAGED! The idea is just great. Try the suggested fixes and you've got a winner! ���

One more vote to keep tweaking the skin. It's REALLY good, and could be FANTASTIC!

I was actually just last night wondering when someone was going to get around to porting the Steam look to WB after I finished up on Day of Defeat. I'm surprised this didn't get done sooner actually. Great effort.

Do take on the comments and critiqu� to improve the skin though. It will end up as a must-have skin in my library, and for any serious HL gamer.

Thanks alot for the comments guys. It really made me feel good. I just uploaded an update to the skin. I changed 1,2,4 from Frogboy's comment. I tweaked a few more things as well. The only issue I have is fixing the dark input boxes with the white text. Im not sure how to fix that so if anyone has any ideas I would appreciate the help.

Great Job so far, agree @ others that the top bar is to thick. Like the minimal clear design. Enjoy..

Yeah, this is a really great skin. I agree with frogboy and all the other above posters.
Keep at it and you'll have an amazing skin on your hands.

Yay, I'm loving this! =D

Only thing I have to say is that I'd prefer the slider icon to change sometime from the original.

And a small matter: Would you be able to make a menu option to make a Steam-styled menu of sorts? I like the current one though, and I don't want to lose it.

Nice! Almost complete Steam skin But there is some mistakes, that would be easy to correct ..

Impressive work, but... Does no one else see the irony of making a Steam-based WindowBlinds skin, when Steam and WindowBlinds have known conflict issues? That said, I am saving this to use if they ever fix the problem.
