areao4.2 by heylove areao4.2 by heylove
Finished! Sorry for the crappy preview. Download it and install it. You'll see how sexy it really is. ;) There's a black and a brown version both with six different color schemes and a bunch of icons. Sorry no Winamp skins. I just don't have the time right now. Big thanks to the 4imp crew for all there help. Check out j3 [link] he should be releasing the walls soon. Thanks for your patience guys. Enjoy!

UPDATE Opps! Some how I forgot to change the taskbar hover buttons for the black version. So they're blue for all of the all of the color schemes. Don't ask me how I missed that. So if you want the black version please download it again.

@bkhastin: Use ResEdit 2.200010 and change font in TEXTFILES->"Desired ini" (eg NORMALAREAO401.INI)
Here is msstyle file with win xp defaults - Tahoma, size 8 (changed only for "option "Normal size" and areao4.01) [link]

Hi, looks wonderful but I can't install it, I patched my system and placed the theme on \resources\themes but nothing happens.... Could anybody help me?

Just so people know, to actually use the theme, you need to double click on it, and Windows will load and preview it.

You should be able to load this in win7. Try putting it in the windows/resources folder. Also, download uxthemepatch if you haven't already.

Download UX Theme Multi Patcher and patch your system. Then restart. After that, copy the folder you get from the download to (Your drive you installed Windows on):\WINDOWS\Resources\Themes

Perfectly working and readable theme (as far as I have tested so far). Not one of these crappy Photoshop-filter-overload-stuff. Plain, clean, nice. Thank you!
Now can someone point em to a simple solution how to integrate all of the icons at once? :)
