VXP 2010

Back To Nature

Tuesday, October 20, 2009 by vStyler | Discussion: WinCustomize Talk

Many of you may remember using my old VXP skin, next to the Vienna trilogy it has been my most popular skin and was popular long before Vienna was a twinkle in its Daddy's eye..

 

Anyway.. Ive been planning on redoing VXP from scratch for quite a while, it was a VS port, didn't have most of the newer WB features like per pixel frames, transparency, dropshadows, tool icons etc, so this will be a totally new skin, designed from the ground up and hopefully will be the first skin I do a Win 7 version of also. So, with 7 coming out and 2010 right around the corner...

 

VXP 2010 it is...   

 

It will have more modern stylings, as smooth as possible graphics, transparency, borderless frames and tab backgrounds, all the bells and whistles and designed to make the best use out of scenic nature walls which personally I cannot get enough of.  

 

Anyway.. here is a shot of the alpha workings of XP.. where I always start.... will update as I progress. The blue area of the top frame is transparent too.. just hard to tell over this background.

You got to be kidding me. You psychic?

When I saw the Helios blind posted over on WC and I looked at the screenshot of it and saw the taskbar the first thing that came to mind was VXP (it even made me open up WBs and take a look at it) and when I posted my comment there wondering if you had done Helios I almost asked if VXP would be one you would update for 7 but decided not to since I wasn't sure if you'd read that thread. And here we are not even 12 hours later


The preview looks great.


p.s. the transparency of the blue section shows well above the horses mane

OK I like this already for my other system here running xp. Sort of on my right screen - so the way the taskbar is works really nice. Good update!

I asked him the same today after seeing his posts and he told me not quite back...more of a break.

I really can't wait for this skin.  How far along is it?

 

Unrelated note, does anyone know how to force a quote?  I.E. I wanted to bring in text from a personal message but it ended up not being in quotes...

v's been teasing for about 18 months now.....everytime a skin finishes....gonna do a VXP update...then...another skin starts...and it gets put on the backburner....

Soooooo glad this is now in the pipeline......was one of my favourites along with AlphaOmega when I first started using blinds.....I still fondly return to it....so it's gonna be wonderful  to have this streamlined, feature packed superb new update.....
