MotoXP - Beta 1 by chaninja MotoXP - Beta 1 by chaninja
This theme was inspired by Superbikes! And like Superbikes, itís all about Performance, Handling and Style. Utilizing optimized graphics and layouts, MotoXP is built for speed and responsiveness, boosting the Performance of your OS. In terms of Handling, youíll experience a higher degree of control using MotoXP as well as complete compatibility with internal and external applications. As for Style, well I donít know about you but I find Superbikes rather sexay!!!

Version Alpha 1 was released at about 2 years ago as a theme concept. Thanks to my "day" job, I don't get much time to theme, so progress has been embarrassingly slow. There's still much more to do before it's complete but I think its reached that critical 'Beta 1' mass. Its roadworthy so please take it on a test ride and post your thoughts on the progress so far, also any suggestions for the rest of the theme would be greatly appreciated.

Included in this release is the main Windowblinds 5 theme, 2 Wallpapers and a UserIcon (from ChaNinja Style). You'll find the wallpapers and UserIcon in your Windowblinds 'MotoXP' theme folder after installation. The main visual style i.e. everything apart from whats listed below is complete.

The following is on the roadmap for MotoXP Final:

- Complete system Icon Set
- Shellstyle backgrounds
- Copy/Move/Delete etc shell animations
- Throbber
- Shutdown/Logoff dialog
- UserIcons
(The theme was built using ChaNinja Style (SubZero) as a base, so everything listed above is still ChaNinja Style)
- Logon screen
- Bootscreen
- Sounds
- CursorXP set
- Tailored color schemes including blue, green, yellow, black, silver and camo.
- More wallpapers (including ones with ninjas!)

Hope you enjoy the ride!

- ChaNinja

In MotoXP the window background color is light grey by default. You can change this to white by going to Display Properties > Appearance > Advanced > Other Advanced Controls. Then click on where it says "Window Text" then click on "Color 1" and select white, click OK and then Apply.

coolest layout I've seen so far & I've been trying to choose 1 for over a week. I wish you created a bootscreen & a log on screen because I'm using the windows red for both.

You just keep getting better and better by every style that you create. :worship:
comicchaser Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2007
Hey, your theme is awesome.
It really matches the new Redshift V2 theme for Firefox I'm using right now.
One thing though:
I set the window color to white, like explained in the instructions at the end of your release notes. But everytime I reboot my PC, the color is set back to grey. Is there a way to prevent this from happening?
milkbone98 Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2007

Exellent Job ,thanks man!
bradius Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2006
This is really great. The style in general is pretty darn neat, and the use of different accent colors works really well. The animated portions win, as they're nice, but not over the top or anything. I'm having a hard time finding any complaints actually.

blind91 Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2006
this is awesome!! this start box design is absolutely wonderful, i love it :D
dio-free Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2006
It would be cool if you could work the nitrous into the Copy/Move/Delete etc shell animation bars.
dio-free Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2006
SO Sexy. The nitrous exhaust is incredible. I cant wait to see the full version. With different colour themes i can switch back and forth and keep this on forever, even though im not a huge bike fan.
