Great job, Werewolf! I'm using it now. Actually setting it up to use both menu themes wasn't that hard at all.

Thanks Chris!

Sweet - I had everything running in the Colony theme except for NS and WS. Now my desktop can match! Thanks a bunch for the theme and to Mike for the agreeing to the port.

I am so glad you decided to make this. I was hoping you would. LOL LOL

Looks great. Won't work with my v2.81 I'm trying out v3.0 and can't get it to work. I followed your instructions to the "T". ButtonA is being drawn incorrectly.(The right border is being painted in the middle of all the open menus.) Wish there was a working version for 2.81.

I'm sorry it's not working jarget. I'm not sure why the button would be drawing incorrectly. I tried to load this theme in v2.81 but I got a run time error, so I can't check it for you. Sorry. I'll try to rebuild the theme for ver 2.81.

Thanks Bushman, appreciate it!

Cool Thanks werewolf. FYI it was drawing incorrectly in Nextstart v3.0 Trial
Comment #10 Friday, December 13, 2002 12:07 PM
Hmmm, that *is* strange. I had a few folks test it prior to upload and a couple try after upload and no one with V3.x had any problems. I've e-mailed you. You may have to fiddle around with the ns preferences. Sometimes, for reasons which are only known to Jorge, some settings don't change correctly when changing themes.

For those having problems with this theme in 3.0, please check your build number. The latest version is 3.00.190 and is available from the Winstep web site as Public Beta Preview 2. It's important to keep up with new releases to avoid this kind of problems.

As for this theme crashing NS 2.81, my fault, sorry. I changed something in the latest build that will make every NS 3.0 theme do this from now on unless I fix the problem (which I intend to do ASAP).

Very nice werewolf. (Been doing some different area exploring and didn't know how much talent I was missing.)

I tried to do as the instructions said, but the dropdown menu has some of the edge right down through it. Still works but looks bad.

When I do as instructed I don't see a place to save in the menu editor...Maybe I'm blind?

Thanks so much Snarph for your comments

There really isn't anything in particular. I usually look at the start panel, menu backgrounds for inspiration. Try to do justice to the original WB theme.
