This skin is really rad. If you could make a Windows 2000 looking version however, I would honestly cry with joy.   2000 is very close to Windows 98. Basically, if the skins were recolored:  Active Title Bar colors:  R:10, G:36, B:106      Gradient: R:, 166, G: 202, B:240 Default Background Blue: R:58, G:110, B:165 The rest of the Windows color (The overall gray color for taskbar, Windows, borders...etc...) R:212, G:208, :200 That would basically be it for 2000.

I tried to apply the changes to the "Windows 9x Recolourable (WIP)" substyle to get the Windows 2000 look but I don't succeed and don't know which settings to change.

Could somebody tell what I need to change or is there any applyable substyle to download or can it be included in a update to pick as substyle? That would be awesome!

The recolor option changes the color to multiple aspects of the skin so making it look 2k-ish just doesn't seem possible. I was working on a personal use substyle with the 2k colors but I never got around to finishing it, if I do & can get permission to release it I will.

Hey! So, I used to use this skin, and I absolutely loved it! However, I'm now encountering an issue where the Start Menu textures aren't loading correctly, and I've got some odd win-7 looking start menu. Will you be able to fix this sometime soon, or recommend a fix for it? It would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hi both, thanks for using the skin! I am expecting to have some extra free time over the next couple of weeks and given how this skin has exploded in popularity I am going to look into both of your requests.

I will create a Windows 2000SemoB specific substyle (and if I have more time will look into fully customisable recolours but no promises on that front) and I will also upload a fixed version of the Start10 start menu which will look something like this.

Please watch this space.
