ecoLogical bughunt

Saturday, April 17, 2010 by I.R. Brainiac | Discussion: WindowBlinds

Before I update ecoLogical for what I hope is the final...I need some help from everybody that has it to nail down some last bugs in the skin. (not the ones that are there on purpose)

I'm already fixing a few small bugs that users have found for me.

 

Shutdown arrow in Win7 being misaligned on non english systems. (adding 2 substyles for that...any coloring styles will have to be added by the user)

A misaligned ladybug on the shutdown area Win7

Adding 1 more substyle to XP (vineshadow Jungle)

A link text color Win7

 

So far I think thats it...now wheres my crack team of testers? (yes,the same ones that didnt find any of the above)

Hey I.R.; when you find these bugs you are getting rid of them in a ecologically friendly way

This could be my system but when I max an explorer window, I get a giant black box around the folder listing.

 

Here's another version, it's clear behind the items although the window in this one isn't maxed.

 

Re-applying doesn't solve it.  The only thing that seems to work is the window losing focus and then coming back to it.  My video card is a nVidia FX2500

Is this going to be a stand up fight, or another bug hunt?...

game over man!...game over...

 

natas...the skin has no translucent backfrounds so I dont think its the skin...have you recently set backgrounds or set them to see thru?(or used a skin with trans backs before loading that one...

reboot?...I'm out of ideas...maybe a forum post to Neil...does it happen with any other skins?

 

the REST of you...I knew I set myself up when I mentioned a bughunt...

I didn't specifically set any up that way.  eco was the first blind I used on this hard drive after getting windowblinds on it.  I set the background to default in WB though and all is well now.  On first load it defaulted to a trans background for me though.  Which is weird.  Thanks anyway.

 

*Haven't been using it since doing some docks for Venom...had to try and find something that was dark and would look ok on screen while testing the docks.  But don't fret, eco is one of my favs.

WB seems to do that sort of thing from time to time...not sure why.

Skinstudio could maybe use a setting to tell WB whether a skin is opaque by default but has translucent elements that CAN be used when needed.
