ChaNinja Style - SubZero by chaninja ChaNinja Style - SubZero by chaninja

This was made for Windowblinds 5 and may not work properly with earlier versions.
"SubZero" refers to this particular colour scheme.(10 more to go).
Includes all shell Animations, Toolbars and Screens.
Its been optimized for Speed.
Includes variations for Compact StartMenu and Large fonts (works well for my setup at 1600x1200 on a 19" monitor).
Double-click the .wba file to install.
You may have to reboot once to make sure all settings apply properly (particularly the desktop font size).
Use the "Windowblinds Configuration" tool to change substyles as Display Properties tends to crash after applying.

Matching Bootscreen which can be applied using "BootSkin" by Stardock

Matching Logon screen.
Can be installed by copying to your C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32 folder. You may have to rename the existing one first (e.g. logonui.exe.bak).

"SubZeroUserpicSunken.jpg" & "SubZeroUserpicSurface.jpg"
Matching Userpics for Normal Startmenus.

"MenuSpeedUp.reg" & "MenuSpeedUp_Undo.reg"
This will improve your menu response time if you haven't already tweaked it.
Double-click MenuSpeedUp.reg and click Yes. Double-click MenuSpeedUp_Undo.reg and click Yes to undo.

This is my first Windowblinds attempt. Hope you like it, please let me know what you think and be sure to report any bugs you find.

Wow, this was submitted 4 years ago and it's still that damn good! I just grabbed this blind about a week ago and absolutely love it. Also a little flare to the blind that I didn't notice right away, when you open up the start menu a little spark or sparkle of something runs along the top of the menu, very clever and totally cool.

Hi ,

Excellent Work ! Am in favour of "stylistic ,minimalistic, fast, uncluttered and above all functional"

Hope to see more of your work .

MarcaSolkanar Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2007
A very very very very beautiful Theme.... I use it ^_^
55214 Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2007
You need to use StyleXP or LogonUI or something to set the logon screen. Otherwise, Windows automatically replaces it with the standard using a backup from somewhere else on the system. AWESOME skin, BTW.

Windows XP media center said that yout .theme file was incorrect so it wouldn't let me add your ninja theme to my pc.

Really fine work, one of the best skins I've come across. Your attention to the small details is impressive, the shine on the sword in the start menu is a very nice touch.

wonderful, nice colors and design, cool details, just like this sword ;)

Really great work!
But somehow I can't change the icons for things like "my music", harddrive, DVD-Drive for example. Would really like to have them like they are shown in the preview.

Looks great, i'll give it a try.. ;)
Nitrius Featured By Owner May 31, 2006
Great, always loved this theme, used the VS a long long time, and now i'am using this :D

Wonderful, keep up the great work =)

This is simple one of the best Windowblinds skins I've ever seen. What some don't seem to realize is that you do not have to cover every inch of the desktop and file structure with some Vista-like transparency to make a truly sexy looking skin. This one is outstandingly well done. It has all of the components someone would expect from a master skin creator.

However, I do have a couple questions.

1. Is there a Chaninja-Subzero login that works with Stardock's Logonstudio instead of having to replace the default logon.ui file?

2. Is there a Chaninja Firefox skin in the works? If not, is there a good skin for Firefox you would recommend to match this theme?

Just one word: awesome. Especially the blade. ;) :katana:
I'm totally stunned. :matrixfight: Never saw such a wonderful skin. Gotta find stuff that matches now.

God, I searched so long for a logon Screen, from your Style & now I found the right one.

ThanX, you're back.

freakin great work, chaninja. :D

can't wait for the other ports. i love the sword animation in the start menu.

billyb Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2006
Awesome...awesome...awesom!!! I was a huge fan of your ChaNinja visual style. I've since moved on... like most people I assume... to Windowblinds. I'm was thrilled to see you create a ChaNinja WB and I cannot wait to check it out! Many people have tried to copy your theme... But none are as good as the original.

I've used your vs for a long time now. I will go with whatever program you end up creating for.
Thanks again.

opi8 Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2006
wow!!! i used to used the old VS of this for ever, moved on the WB5 and never thought i would see the WB5 version. great work chaninja!!! :clap:
chaninja Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2006
~Butch123: Thanks for the crit! I realize whats possible with WB5 and I intend on using them all in my future themes but I wanted to keep ChaNinja Style as close as possible to the original msstyle because I've grown so accustomed to it over the years. My goals when designing it were to make a theme that is stylish yet minimalistic, fast, uncluttered and above all functional. I wanted the skin to perform as fast as possible which is why I left out menu skinning and other features in WB5 that tend slow it down.

As I said this is my first attempt at Windowblinds so I wanted to keep things simple the first time round. My views towards this skinning platform has changed since version 5 of WB and I'm impressed to say the least. Expect more ports and brand new skins soon in which I'll add more flash.

~Isham: MenuSpeedUp is a simple registry tweak that will reduce your menu delay time zero. You'll have to Logoff before you'll see the change. Its harmless and the undo reg file has been included if its too fast for ya.
Butch123 Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2006
This really looks good...i have been using your Windowblind all day, and you have acheived your goals 100% with it ! Looking forward to your future works with much anticipation !

bezem049 Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2006  Hobbyist Interface Designer
It looks awesome, good job !
Butch123 Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2006
Wow, I remember this I think back in 2003. This was a really nice VS and Windowblind at that time. But, I have downloaded it and took a look at it, and if you dont mind some constructive criticism, Windowblinds 5 has a lot to offer in the new era of skinning. and I dont really see very much implemented into this Windowblind. YOu know I havent really checked it out at 100% but I did load it in Skin Studio 5 and found coding errors. Also, menus should be Enabled for Windowblinds. Flat menus should be Disabled for Windowblinds to start. But hey, like I said previously this was one of my favorites along with all the rest of your work that came out with this. Please dont feel like I am trying to be offensive, I am not, I am just trying to offer some constructive input. Very nice work overall !
NinjaKiller Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2006
the old sub zero vs was my windows style for years... it's one of the best, but i haven't windowblinds yet, and i think many others would prefer a vs version of the new style, too, if it's possible... :ninja:
