Infini8 Modern Age - BETA by bozidar Infini8 Modern Age - BETA by bozidar
BETA Prerelease of Infini8 Modern Age Visual Style. Infini8 is a pack of 4 different visual styles developed to closely follow MS Style specifications to reduce the bugs as noticed with many other visual styles. This is the first of four styles and currently is in beta stages. Due to a lot of requests to test this beta, I've decided to make it public.

The Infini8 - Modern Age comes with 3 different caption bar styles and 2 shell styles (one normal and one slightly modified Stefanka's shell style).
This visual styles will consist of Firefox theme, Trillian skin and Winamp skin when the final set is released. Included are all needed files including fonts, links to appropriate fonts, wallpapers and registry scripts to extend Windows system font usage and make everything as consistent as possible.

I would like to thank people who contributed to this visual style either by testing first initial beta release or by supporting this style from the beginning. Also I would especially like to thank a few people and their work because without it this style wouldn't look as it looks now:

1. Stefanka for creating modifications to system files and creating visual styles that break all the rules and look damn fine. ( [link] )
2. Marvilla for creating an incredibly smooth and modern looking icons and icon packager themes ( [link] )
3. ChiLam for creating a very nice Aero Smooth / Aero Slate YZ Toolbar theme ( [link] )


Dear friends,

Infini8 - Modern Age is at it's final stages and a fully working Release Candidate is available for you to download. The Zip file consists of 3 different versions of Modern Age and it includes all of the necessary files for you to work with.

Installation instructions:
1. Unzip directly to Windows>Resources> Themes folder
2. Install the fonts from Windows> Resources>Themes>Infini8 (any RC version)
3. Under Display Properties pick the Theme Set not Visual Style (Infini8RC1, Infini8RC2, Infini8RC3)
4. The cursors configuration along with wallpaper should automatically become available.
5. Download the Pastels icon set (instructions provided inside the folders)
6. Copy the appropriate files to YZ Toolbar Themes folder (usually under Program Files>YZ Toolbar>Themes)
7. Depending on your choice of fonts (from within the styles) go to Windows> Resources>Themes>Infini8 (any RC) and follow the instructions in the Registry Scripts folder.

That's it. Please report any bugs (possibly with screenshots) at your convenience. Bug report link : [link]

death-au Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2006
Great work, but I think it would've been a better idea to include each of the release candidates as substyles...

I like this theme so much, the colors, the glassy effect, everything. My only complaint could be the taskbar being a lil' too thick, but I'm using these visual style regardless, great work! +fav

Hi bozidar,

Thank you very much for this marvelous VS. I have reviewed hundreds of VS since 3 years. I have found yours by browsing page/page in deviantArt VS section. I was used to look for new VS in Neowin but Neowin's VS forum seems to have few updates since 2005.

I've constituted a personal best collection of about 50 VS. Your VS is #1. I like better the Infini8RC2 variation. I am rather lucky to find a VS that has every things I like: balanced fonts & colors, not too flashy like Mac's or Longhorn themes, easy to the eays, works flawlessy with Firefox.

I hope you are still working toward the final version. I have a few requests:

- Default button: would it be better to have a colored border rather than a gray border?

- More colors :-)

Thanks you very much in advance.

neoflox Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2004
Congrats for that gorgeous Theme! I use RC 1 because the "_[_]X"-Buttons look fantastic that way! Keep it up!
madtamski Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2004
Totally awesome skin! Love it...
bahamutsphere Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2004
hello ...

First i want to say... this vs one of the best skin i ever found
second... i have little suggestion and some request

Suggestion : i am using similar taskbar button grouping, and when a i click on the button grouping the popup background color [pale gray] + text color [white] kinda same, and that make me kinda dificulty reading the text, so i really hoping you can change the background color to the darker one

and for my request, can you make new start menu panel option for showing user image? (current Infini8 VS only showing names) well maybe more people prefer that way, that's why i requesting an option to make it available ^^
just for everyone like to show up their user image on start menu panel.

and last i hoping you adding log off & turn off vs on the final ver. ^^

thanks for the vs~!
Kael-Seleill-Nulaad Featured By Owner May 28, 2006
I agree with the suggestions. maybe the taskbar active button could be more notorious. An user image menu would be great too ^^

Keep up with the awesome work!
bangboombang Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2004

tzichau Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2004
awesome~~~but i think the "aqua graphite" wallpaper matchs the toolbar's tone much better!
nothing to say,the best!yeah,the best skin for xp i ever it!
nosferatoo Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2004

Touch-Money Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2004
No one has answered yet so I will ask again. How did he get his explorer bar to look like that, and what do you do with the shellstyle.dll?
gki Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2004
Very Good!!!
Adding you now... :+devwatch:

...hmmm... i think it must be a little bit brighter...

Paolo1968 Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2004   Photographer
Hi, I installed and I like it very much.
Love the dark blue tones...
Hope you can release the final version soon.

knochnkopf Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2004
Awesome visual style, i quickly changed my whole desktop so that i could use this theme. another good iconpackager suite to use is the Cardiinal Skin Blue theme from the GUI Championships 2004, not sure of the link, i just thought it looked good with the vis. great job and keep those themes coming!
skuko Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2004 that running....AWESOME !!!! i'm not loosing this one at all....really this THEME IS HOT !!! :headbang: can't wait for the final release....anytime soon?? :eyepopping:
sogear Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2004
Definitely one to grab the daily deviation. :)
Who knows, maybe tomorrow. ;)
p-a-u-l Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2004
I love the VS but without the shell styles it loses it's appeal.
Could you PLEASE tell me how to use the shellstyle.dll ?
Touch-Money Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2004
I would also like to know
Touch-Money Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2004
My one question is how did you get the explorer bar to look like that?
composmentis Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2004
I would like to know, too!
archangelhunter Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2004   Photographer
WOW 0_0 I'm definitely gonna give this a try. Thanks :)

Oh yea, it looks nice too :P :+fav:
aspirations Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2004
awesome.. really, honestly awesome.

helps that i like blue, too ;)

okay, NOBODY HAS to do this but .. *reaches out and looks around* opera skin or aiMutation skin, anyone? ;D
again, don't you dare do this if you weren't considering it/interested in it in the first place. i can probably figure out how to do this myself (assuming i get permission, of course :)) if i ever get the patience to sit down and learn it!

just consider this gentle prodding for anyone already thinking of it =P

ANYWAY!! the important thing is: THANK YOU, ~bozidar for making this! good job.
futb0l Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2004
