I was very excited when I found out about the Pirates premium suite. Because I'm a big fan of pirates.....pirate movies, pirate video games, you name it, and I like it as long as there is some form of swashbuckling going on. Don't ask why, I just do.
This new suite is loaded with plenty of pirate goodness including:
- WindowBlinds visual style (XP and Vista)
- Icon package with 117 icons including ones for Vista
- CursorXP cursor
- LogonStudio skin
- Gadgets including a talking pirate!
- and much more....
To use this theme you will need to have the latest Theme Manager installed. If you are an Object Desktop subscriber make sure you update through Stardock Central. When you are all updated you can simply double-click the pirates suite file to begin the pirate "transformation".
With Theme Manager open, hit apply then a new window will open, select "advanced" and this is where you can choose some options. These options include if you want to install the WindowBlinds skin, Icon pack, and the various choices of wallpapers. Once you have made your selections, click Yes and the Pirate suite will appear.
Once that is done, it's time to open the Pirates booty! By that I mean the extras that are included in your download, some of which are listed above. There are a variety of gadgets included with the suite such as a media player, clock, calendar, and my personal favorite being the talking pirate gadget. To use this or any of the other gadgets just double-click the .exe file for that particular gadget.
Also included in the pirates booty is skins for ObjectDock, LogonStudio, Bootskin, and CursorXP. If you don't already have these just click to go to their websites for download information. Now check out my pirates desktop....
