TallyHawk Beta 2 by chaninja TallyHawk Beta 2 by chaninja
Yup it flys again!!! I proudly present TallyHawk Beta 2! I've made many changes to it since the last release (all the details / installation instructions etc are in the readme.txt) and hope to hear your comments on this one.

There are 10 color schemes included:
- "Balloo" (brilliant blue)
- "Blood" (dull red)
- "Blue" (duller than balloo)
- "Deviant" (of course)
- "Firebird" (hot orange)
- "Green"
- "Phoenix" (hotter red)
- "Purple" (royal)
- "Raven" (shiny black)
- "Vulture" (dark grey)

And wallpapers to match.


btw The Winamp3 skin in the screenshot is called "Evolver" (not by me)

Hi, this theme is the best theme I ever seen. It's shame there isn't any new version worked on XP SP2. Because this theme has been submitted 5 years ago, I thing there won't suppose to be any new version. That's a pity.

Am I the only one who this theme doesn't work for? I downloaded it awhile back and it's never worked. I've tried it using both Style XP and the UXTheme Multipatcher. Oh well...
CaptainCobra Featured By Owner May 7, 2005
this theme doesnt seem to work for me. i tried using it in style xp then the neowin uxtheme multipatcher, but it just doesnt work and he hasnt come out with a new version so im stuck using crappy themes...

Yea i think theres a problem with SP2 and this theme..... man i wanna try this style so bad it looks awesome i hope chaninja can come up with an update soon!
Ed1bleTal2get Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2005
This theme is definately the best theme ive ever seen. However, since SP2 came out, it wont apply anymore.

Any luck on getting an update for SP2?

just a comment, in the start menu can you place the all programs text a bit to the left.
Because in dutch it is alle programma's, because of the lenght it goes tru the hawks eye, and that a shame....
pbirkett Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2003
I dont often comment on these themes, as I generally find one way or another, there is something to dislike about them, but not with this one. This theme has everything. Easily the best Visual Style I have ever seen.

Superb! Absolutely superb!!

Thanks for sharing such a masterpiece!! :) (Smile)
novaphoenix Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2003
This is an absolutely amazing theme! I never thought i would eveer see a skin which would beat the original chaNinja, but this one does it hands down!!!! :) (Smile)

So clean and crisp! I think that with such a clean skin, the wallpaper can afford to be a bit 'busier', which isnt really a problem with all the great wallpapers on DevientArt!

Any plans on doing some icon packs for this theme or the chaninja theme, as i know i would almost certainly use them!!!

Well done on such an excellent theme! Makes Windows XP a joy to use! ;) (Wink)
relativity17 Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2003
Easily the nicest theme I've downloaded.

- Start button is a bit larger than on most themes I've used. Not really a problem though.

I'm getting an error that the theme could not be loaded when I click on my saved TallyHawk theme. I've managed to load it, but there are errors, such as the right top buttons. They look like a mix of the "correct" themed buttons, and old 16-bit buttons. Oh well, still a very nice theme.

This theme rocks so hard, I put it on my wifes pc & she loved it!!!
inph3kt1ouz Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2003
Crazy stuff. Well, I dl'ed it and I'm using it now and I gotta say it's one of the best VS's I've ever seen. Good Job! :) (Smile)

O yea... +fav :) (Smile)
psych0phobia Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2003
This is incredible! It really needs Large font support though. Those of us with large screens at high resolutions need the benefit of larger fonts so we don't have to squint at the screen ;-) (Wink)
Top notch work on the graphics though. This would be my style of choice except for the fonts. For now I guess I'll stick with the ChaNinja one.
