I can tell ya spent a lot of time on this.  Very different.  Nice start menu.  There are a few flaws, at least on my machine.  All programs is cut off,  logon and shutdonw is also cut off.  Nice animations.  That MS blue on the turn off computer box is a distraction.  But it is different.

Thank you very much!!!

All programs is cut off, logon and shutdonw is also cut off.

I wonder if this is due to the skining being done on 1440 x 900 !
MS blue on the turn off computer box is a distraction

what part are you talking about so I can fix
Comment #8 Sunday, June 24, 2007 10:57 AM
this is definitely "out of the box" as you mentioned in the skin description.
The animations for the min/max/close window buttons & the start button are fantastic -
Heck I didn't even know you could animate the window buttons!? A very complex skin and as you mentioned, skinning in 1440x900 may have something to do with why some of the gui elements look different on your machine vs. other machines. The titlebar font on the top windowframe is too big for me and I think the more programs menu bkgrnd is too busy for my taste but the skin definitely does have a future space tech look to it which isn't bad. This skin definitely looks better on bigger displays (if you're running 1024x768, it probably won't look as good) I don't know how many 3d skins there are on this site, and 3d skinning is a very complex. Don't concentrate on the ratings too much, if you enjoy skinning and this skin works for you, that's all that's important. I skin for myself first and share with others afterwards. Keep them coming AVMAN, I look forward to all your new stuff, it's been a while since your last release. �

The 3D effect on the start menu is REALLY cool.
Comment #10 Sunday, June 24, 2007 11:13 AM
Hello AV, Please do not determine the value of your work on the rating or number of downloads. Do it because you enjoy it first. If you must base it on that then I would suggest first using the Skinning section in the forums or the What are you working on thread to post you work, get feedback & ask for people to test it before uploading it here.

I enjoy the fact that you are thinking outside of the box & as has been said it is clear that you put alot of work into it.

I as well have the same issue in the start panel with the logoff, shutdown & all programs being cutoff. I am using XP with a Screen size of 1152 x 864 if that helps. I do like the design of the start panel but just find that overall the skin is bigger than what I would normally use as well as being so dark.

The shutdown dialog is really cool but the blue is quite a contrast to what you have in the skin itself. I love the animations as well. The yellow text in say FF is very easy to read but does not go well with the blind IMO and at the bottom of the window I have black text against that textured background making it unreadable.

So please do not do the cookie cutter WB but remember that your design style is new and as a result will take time for people to get used to it.

Good concept.
The 3-D parts looked great.
But I had a hard part reading a lot of the text.  Like many concept albums of my youth, interesting . . but not something I would actually listen too (or use in a skin)

thank you very much just wanted something different not sure if this it but......"it's been a while since your last release" this monster really slowed me down due to the 3d rendering!
Thank you!!

It's my secret
Thank for the comment I appreciate your input yellow text has not shown up for me but FF is skinned and ok maybe no cookie cutters!
Thanks this skin as most took on a life of its own leading me well....doesn't really fit my taste either but it had to be seen to completion I think maybe its still kinda cool!!
Comment #13 Sunday, June 24, 2007 11:52 AM

i found the 3D really interesting animations too.
But it seems to me too big (run on 1280x1024), and it need more contrast for the colors of font. Dark font on dark buttons and/or backgrounds it's really hard to read.

i get problems with the start panel (buttons)
i run on XP pro sp2 french
It need also to keep out the shadow on start panel

just my own opinion as you know skinning is a question of tastes we can't like all the others like
keep up the good work

Well,I gotta at least give you props for pushing the skinning boundries a bit.I say keep at it,with some refinement in 3d rendering and WB optimisation I think you might really have something.�

Comment #16 Sunday, June 24, 2007 4:36 PM
What would happen if you got rid of the text on the right side of the start panel just like a compact start menu???????
Comment #17 Sunday, June 24, 2007 4:40 PM
