Exceptional work ... -1 for missing toolbar buttons.

I think you must ask Ian Black aka VoodooFreek (VF) for permiting you to use his Longhorn Slate's Toolbar Icons ...

hmm.. i better think of that one. got to admit making the progress animations is a real pain, i decided not to make a toolbar...

I have been wrong!!! the Wallpaper which i used for the skin's screenshot is not called Grassy (Comment #18). it is called New Bliss which comes with the Official Win XP Visual Style called Royale released by Microsoft itself. how could i be so stupid. the link was to a wallpaper of the same style but was sort of modified. Sorry folks. i am only human.

This is a good skin!
I believe that, with the next job, can improve a lot!
The points in object (according to my point of view):
- The buttons of closing.
- The white blue? > (better the grey transparency).
- The green bar of the downloads? > (better blue as the start).
The rest is perfect!

In this link you can find an alternative wall perfect for the skin.

Geez man. thanks for that. i do have a say about your point of view though.
well, the close button does seem unclear especially when maximized----but that is not at all an issue (for me) because the latest build of Longhorn seem to be having that kind of problem, too.
the "whit-blue" selection---is based on the latest build of longhorn.
The "green bar"---or the progress bar is also based on longhorns latest build.
and since i wanted to have the longhorn experience in my XP, i did everything "longhorn" . However in your case, since you wanted those in the WB theme, i will try to make it up to you. besides, i know that not all are happy with the skin.... keep posted. i might submit an update and add a substyle with those specifications.
and again thank you.

Thank you for having held in consideration my suggestions.
But I have expressed them because I am using your skin with a lot of satisfaction.
I know that too changes cannot be effected to the scheme of base.
They are only aesthetical suggestions to look for the perfection.
I am Italian and, I can guarantee you, the beauty that it knows how to surprise always wins.
In reality the color and the structure of the forms are fundamental elements.
For example: metal, plastics, brightness, opacity, depth, reflected, 3D.
I have afforded to say my opinion on an already complete job.

Thanks again, Maurice.

This is a pretty cool skin. It sure beats the rest of the other Windows XP modern/classic skins for sure.

The skin works great except the Start Menu. Here's a screen(I blocked out my name):


Any idea what's wrong or how to fix this? Any help would be largely appreciated.

First of all, i can not thank you enough for downloading AND using my skin. to be honest, i do not really know what causes that(the one in your screeny). i never had it in mine so i thought it works pretty fine. maybe it has something to do with your WB version but then again if you are using the latest version, then its not the problem. Tell you what, why don't you contact the admins or stardock for this. i don't really know the answer....

Erm... are you using the latest windowblinds? 4.5+ versions are the only ones that support start menu transparency but the legacy version (4.4 - downwards) don't. that is the only thing i can think of as the issue regarding this concern.
