It's all good. I figured there was a language difference... I'm not upset. I simply disagree. I don't think all my. skins look the same At least no more than anyone else here.Perhaps in grose but not in fine. I tend toward the blue ' cause I like it. To tell me I need to change the way I'm doing my skins is like telling a cat to not be so feline. I was Just trying to point out the fact I'm striving for accuracy in my skins as to the theme I'm attempting to emulate. If the show looks similar, then the skin probably will to. And pointing out simply telling me there's a problem sometimes isn't enough. sometimes it's necessary to show someone what the problem is. And sometimes what one thinks of as a mistake is in fact part of the theme. No hard feelings here

It can be hard sometimes when a comment is made the best bet is not to take it to heart *winks*

I think I wanted Jouneyman singled doight speaking of language barrier, I think the comments will help people to better themselves and for that purpose I left mine, not to discourage anyone, may be I expressed myself badly but I do not think journeyman am able person commented in French then criticize me on my comment is rather English unfolded, I finally know Bradatharpe can use the positive comments and I have no doubt no talent on the contrary.Bradatharpe I may be hard pressed to give my opinion on your skin, but believe me I have not wanted to hurt you in any way whatsoever.

I'm new at this so forgive errors. I attempted to download Stargate Atlantis, but it keeps requesting a file called .uis Any person familiar with where or how I can acquire it? Thanking you in advance.

I said it was all good folks. I'm not upset. Mr.Frero. Don't worry about it. If my skins look the same to you It's probably because these are the type of skins I look for. I'm attracted to the Scifi monitor os's that look nothing like Windows. Perhaps I should have emphasized I was recreating the human built OS. and the menu screens from the dvd's y'all were probably expecting something that reflected the Atlantean tech. as you can see from the screencaps that I got what I was going for pretty well accurate. Later I may try my hand at the atlantean tech. But I hope you don't think it's a rehash of TRON. Because from what I can tell It kinda resembles it. Alot of dissembodied flat hollographic screens floating in mid air. alot of hexagonal shapes with 45' angles. Yup more of the same. Should I even bother?

I have IE8 with Windows 7 Ultimate and it totally refuses to download without the .uis file. Very much looking forward to Tron. Again, much thanks.

you said you were new to this. fine let me help you. I've already helped another. The .uis file is in there It works. I just downloaded it. Sometimes its all a mater of timing. Also a fresh reboot never hurt anything I'm aware of. Don't take this personally. Ok very nice. So you have the newest everything. That doesn't mean it's perfect. Sometimes newer isn't better. in fact I had IE-8 for awhile and discovered it was fuller of bugs than a pastry shop. It's so called safety and speed protocols aren't smoothed out yet, Like most other Microsoft apps. They rushed it through. It's only 2 steps above a beta program right now. I love Fire fox. But it's not perfect yet either, I've had to reinstall it 4 times to make it work right. even then sometimes I have to revert to IE7 to upload or download on certain sites. here is a link to my private messages. http://forums.wincustomize.com/pm/new/3417558 Give me an email address I can send you the .uis files direct.

To those of you who think All my skins look alike. I did a really quick study. I picked all the skins which at first blush appeared to me to be hatched out of the same egg. here are the results of just the 1st 6 pages. this doesn't even scratch the surface. These are all fine skins. Extremely well done. but they all have a commonality to them that is striking at first site. My point is this. How do you know what it really looks like until you pull it out and play with it. If you just look at the screen cap. you can't really tell the difference. http://www.wincustomize.com/skins.aspx?skinid=7096&libid=1 http://www.wincustomize.com/skins.aspx?skinid=7084&libid=1 http://www.wincustomize.com/skins.aspx?skinid=7092&libid=1 http://www.wincustomize.com/skins.aspx?skinid=7077&libid=1 http://www.wincustomize.com/skins.aspx?skinid=7089&libid=1 http://www.wincustomize.com/skins.aspx?skinid=7085&libid=1 http://www.wincustomize.com/skins.aspx?skinid=7031&libid=1 http://www.wincustomize.com/skins.aspx?skinid=7083&libid=1 http://www.wincustomize.com/skins.aspx?skinid=7078&libid=1 http://www.wincustomize.com/skins.aspx?skinid=7071&libid=1 http://www.wincustomize.com/skins.aspx?skinid=7065&libid=1 http://www.wincustomize.com/skins.aspx?skinid=7070&libid=1 http://www.wincustomize.com/skins.aspx?skinid=7057&libid=1 http://www.wincustomize.com/skins.aspx?skinid=7054&libid=1 http://www.wincustomize.com/skins.aspx?skinid=7050&libid=1 http://www.wincustomize.com/skins.aspx?skinid=7048&libid=1 http://www.wincustomize.com/skins.aspx?skinid=7023&libid=1 http://www.wincustomize.com/skins.aspx?skinid=7022&libid=1

The graphics in your blinds are what you would see if you were watching the shows everything is flat, as for the stargate border graphics they are squarish where as the star treks is more rounded so in that respect you have duplicated that fine,the only real commonality i see in any of your blinds is color,however that can't be helped as both SG & ST use those colors in the series themselves,yeah ok i could go on to say certain blinds have this & lack that & perhaps you could have done this or done that,one would assume that isn't the direction you wanted the blind to go in simply coz it's not how it should appear,my last comment on being the same is every single blind in the wincustomize gallery is exactly alike whether it is on the extreme end say like slider right down to windows own graphics,it's still only a task bar & borders whether it's flat & non textured or raised n fancy n stuff,add a glass look & shadow makes it look different again there's only so much you can do in a 2 dimensional screen,perhaps that's the prob we're spoiled for choice

If others were doing regular sci-fi themes and they were better,I might sympathise with a gentle criticism,but you're doing Star Trek,Stargate Atlantis and they're not bad at all. Any Babylon 5,DS 9,SG Universe etc ideas?

Comment #14 Wednesday, March 03, 2010 3:31 PM
Stargate Universe is a good one. The Destiny has the Ui floadting in mid air and I find the shape interesting. When I get through with repairing all the mistakes revamping my pcap skins I'll look into it. thanks.

First off let me say this. Brad good job on this and the LCARS HE wb's i'm running lcars he with the enterprise deskspace and it looks SICK!!!

to everyone who for some reason has a negative comment let me throw something that i havent seen touched. every windowsblind that i've seen brad do has been his interpretation and design on a technological computer system from a movie or tv series. if you take a moment and netflix the shows (star trek, stargate Atlantis, Tron) you will see that the actual systems he is trying to recreate are fairly abstract looking compared to your average looking windows system. for example LCARS is a touch based engineering system on a star ship that is designed to control all aspects of the ship. need i say more. to think that brad has been able to integrate something like that into a skin and make it mesh as well as he does with Windows XP, Vista, and windows 7 is pretty awesome. the only thing that i miss is glowin buttons on mouse over in lcars...(btw thats not really a request but ya). sorry for the rant guys i just think your looking at his skins out of context for which they were designed. these skins arent for everyone and unless your a big fan of a series and get a kick out of playing in a system that looks like the system from trek or atlantis then i think you wont like it.

anyway since i got off track, brad keep skinning man your doing great and i'm looking forward to your next design (still looking for the ancient tech skin)

Brad...I think the first poster has a language barrier...so don't take it to heart to much. And even when someone...your always going to have someone...comments on your work in a negative light...just shrug it off. You did a pretty decent job with this skin. And you'll only get better in time. Unless someone is a graphics expert...I'd be willing to bet most people that started skinning go back and look at the first skins they did and go WTF was I thinking! lol

Comment #19 Friday, February 26, 2010 5:06 AM
Ok. I think I'm done here. I'm not hurt Angry or pset Okay?? Just gotta get this out. First off All the little niggling problems with the Font's All I gotta say is I love XP! Ya gotta love an os that allows you nearly absolute control over your color scheme. I have asked for help in that arena. The help has been, to me and my experience level tenuous and vague at best. Vampothica tried to help me, But obviously I didn't get it. As to the over-sized fonts. I need to see it. on LCARS HE if the font in the title bar is the same height as the title bar. Then it's accurate for LCARS. See the Screen cap for reference. If not show me,. As to the issue of all my skins looking the same.I don't mean to go off on a rant here, but here goes...OK Lcars Suite Looks similar to LCARS HE , Big Surprise there. The PCAP Series look similar to each other? Gee, Wonder why that would be. Tron??? Ok it's blue. What did you expect?? But To tell me that Star gate Atlantis looks like all the rest. Couldn't disagree more. And if it did, So what? With the rare exception. I see a whole lot of the same here. A whole lot of monochromatic Grey and black. With either flat grey or blinding white backgrounds. Again. I Love My Xp. Not limited to Black fonts. Did anyone notice the forced 3D perspective between the Places toolbar on the left of the window and the background? Tell me of another skin to do that? I Have been drawing Scifi themes here. And I like to think pretty accurately. If the seem similar then perhaps the shows are also similar..... If I'm not doing it your way then great. Please Do one your way. I am dying to see it. really. I've been to the Scifi Forums full of people who want these themes. Unfortunately for them and myself. No one made them. And I decided to learn how too little too late. If they all look the same to your eyes. Then take a look at what I'm trying to emulate Then you will see why. As to this not looking like Stargate. How do you say Tomato? or Potato? It's in the minds eye . My way isn't what you would do? Huh. Go figure. That's like your painting your house and you neighbor walks up and says That's not the way I'd do it. To that I would say "That's nice". "Show me how to do it." Then he say's "Oh I don't know how to do it myself I just know your doing it wrong." I find the concept Laughable at best. First you Try it then you can critique. J.M.O. Here are my reference shots. This is my baseline. Tell me again how I'm wrong? Again. I'm not upset. Angry, hurt, or anything. I'm just done with this. I did what I set out to do. I learned how to make windows look the way I want. The way "I" Want... I will go back through my skins and try to find and kill my mistakes and update them. After that I think I'll just go back to my trek site. C Ya!

First of all, I LOVE your LCARS Home Edition and this new Stargate theme... my only 'major' struggle is with the rather over-sized fonts at the bottom of my screen on both themes... do you or does anybody know of a "fix" for that? Keep it up... I'm sure skinning is harder than it looks like (easier said than done)... haven't skinned myself but hope to one day!
