'tom tom' StyleXP port to WB request

Friday, August 2, 2002 by Woodbridge | Discussion: WinCustomize Talk

There is a cool looking, original, StyleXP theme over on Neowin (http://www.neowin.net/bboard/showthread.php?s=&threadid=39061&perpage=15&pagenumber=6 - big screenshot at bottom) it is also posted on DA (http://www.deviantart.com/deviation.php?id=505247) its called 'tom tom'. I would dearly love to see somebody get permission to do a port of it to WindowBlinds. I had tried to do a personal port but it turned out....well... I really am no good at putting together a wb skin. He has asked if someone would be willing to port it (see the comments on the DA link)Its crying aout for custom colour support to.

I'm sorry if asking for a port isn't 'the done thing' but i thought if I don't ask it may never happen.

aout? opps, just 'out'
and the last 'to' should be 'too'

It's amazed me how popular that particular theme has become. I checked it out a while ago and it doesn't do too much for me. There are quite a few WB skins with a similar look and feel already...some by aleksyander and myself.

You both do great skins, infact, 500RS is the skin I am using right now and have been for a while. The thing with tom tom that I like is that it is more of a suite than just one skin. I think one of the reasons that it has become so popular is that it doesn't look like a mac theme.

Yes, that does make it appealing. I doubt I'll ever get into skinning anything else than WB though. I just don't have enough time to skin as much as I'd like. Aleksyander is finally getting into skinning some other apps though.
