TECH.45 Visual Style

By dantejames

Tech.45 VS for Windows XP

This is my first visual style and first attempt at any kind of application/interface skinning ever. I stopped working on it while I've been using Windows Vista, but some problems forced a format and reinstall and I'm back on Windows XP; so I blew the dust off this project, finished up the shellstyle and zipped it up ready to share with anyone interested.

The package is pretty bare-bones. No icons/wallpaper/extras apart from a couple of xp user icons (including a blank/template icon). By all means if you like my VS and find an icon set or a particular wallpaper which works really well then let me know.

Only the one colour scheme for the time being, sorry. A black variation may or may not see the light of day in the future!

View the readme file for a few extra details, but it's all pretty straightforward stuff I hope.

Until next time!

Well done. Good VS. Really good colors, even if they are not the most subtle around. But the VS is very clear and functional.

Any news on the update? Or are you back on Vista?

I tried to fix the bug in the shellstyle (taskbullet.gif still from luna) myself, but I had no idea what draw that would fit.

Pretty cool VS!

Still a possibility for an orange/black version as opposed to orange/grey?

excellent theme, trying it right now.
if you planning an update, could you add some button-hovering, or a font option a bit larger ??
it would be nice another colors, also....

other than that, very pretty theme and thanks for sharing

I got 2 unused slots for fonts at the moment, what would you prefer to see; larger tahoma options or a couple of different, slightly bigger looking fonts like Arial, Lucida Grande etc?
Arial is good
I also like Swiss 721 bold condensed (normal or all-caps)...

thanks for your time !
