The toolbar (Back, Search, etc...) is showing the older xp icons. infact, all the themes are showing that instead of the theme toolbar icons. How do I get themes (espicially this one) to show the new toolbar?

Awesome update rj. Keep up the good work!

Nice! I like blue!
If I may be so bold, I would like to see the hover version of the start button more bold(ie. colorful)...very washed out and pale on my machine. Also, some glow effects with more color on buttons would be nice too! the blue min/max buttons are kinda hard to tell there on...
Just a couple of ideas for you! love the skin though! Especially for your first - I have been wanting to do one for a long time, but just not willing to attempt it!

The toolbar icons that I am using are from...Aura...I think. I am not at home right now so I am not sure. The system icons are crystal style, I am not sure the full name right now. Just search for crystal in the icon packages section.

Sorry, I cannot be more specific.

PS: I am looking for some skin testers. My email is in the skin information, so just let me know if you are interested.

Looks spectacular, but it's a little big for me. I prefer thin skins, myself.

A really nice & balenced skin, can u release a version in black color, & vertical shellstyle like default Windows XP. Rest looks good, but the titlebar is very fat, a 20 pixel fat is good enough for this skin.

good looking take on XP
Comment #48 Friday, April 28, 2006 11:11 PM
I think I may be the only one thinking this, but, I suggest leaving the titlebar & taskbar teh size they are. I think they are just right.

The skin overall is exactly what I was wanting. It isn't overhauled with junk but it doesn't leave you wanting much either. A great skin, imo.

Looks like a good skin. I've tried to install it twice and get the default windows xp skin and loose my title bar and everything. The preview doesn't even show up in the WB skin select window. My computer is top of the line and I have WB5. I would like to try your skin...don't know what the problem is yet.

Hey, when you download the skin. Do you get something like Xpformat.wba.zip ? Just wondering, it may just be me. Thanks,

file naming problem exists. skin preview not working...
'XPFormat.ssd' file content should below

Name=XP Format Full

Name=XP Format Compact
Skin=XP Format Compact.sss
so, delete old 'XPFormat.uis'
rename 'XPFormatFull.uis' ---> 'XPFormat.uis'

author's repackaging required.

In this update, the restore/resize button for all the windows doesnt show up unless you click it. Only way to make the windows not full screen is to double click the bar.

I like the green loading bar better than the blue one also.

The min, max/restore buttons must be per pixeled? they dont work on my laptop. The rest of the skin looks good, but i get the old xp min/max bottons.

clicking on control panel gives me an error, only with this theme...
Comment #55 Wednesday, May 3, 2006 11:45 AM
The Control panel error is because of the shellstyle. Just change it to "classic view" and you will not see the error again.

I update my skin yester day, but it is not showing up. I suggest downloading it again. I added some new things and fixed some others.

Just discovered this beauty! Thanks!
Comment #57 Sunday, May 7, 2006 7:23 PM
Alright fellow Wincustomizers, I need your help. Why is there no preview of the "window bar" in the Windowblinds config? I have no idea why. Please I will appreciate any help that you give.



PS: I will be releasing an update soon!
Comment #58 Monday, May 8, 2006 12:36 AM
thanks for keeping updates...
convert "skin_WindowFrameTopUis2.tga" to bmp file (24bit bitmap).
then, preview will be working.
i don't know exact reason. i'm not a skinner, just be one of this theme fans.
Comment #59 Friday, May 12, 2006 12:13 PM
Great skin! The only problem I see is that the font size, especially for the buttons, should be a little smaller. Other than that it's awesome! Great job!

It's a 1st class clean skin now, well done. But still i want a mini version with smaller titlebars and taskbar.
