Hey, this is really awesome, but I have one question: Is it normal that the ball on bars is a little bit cut? Look: [link]

I am using Test Track Pro and as soon as I switch to this theme the program does not work any longer.
Seaphine says its not their problem and that they are not supporting this issue. Therefore my question is, if you know a workaround to make this cool theme work with TTP.

Here is a link to show you how the tool looks like:

I hope you can see what the problem is and know a workaround.

Best wishes

for some reson the download doesn't work. I have this dial up internet service ( which totally sucks! ) and I waited like 10 minutes for it to download and when it was like %60 complete it suddenly stopped. :fear: I have to change my internet server as soon as I can. now I know it better than ever! lol
anyways, enough ebout that. this is absolutely amazing my friend. The smoothness and how you made the start menu and everything is just so pretty. I like the little icons and how clear they ectually look as well. just so neat! It is one of the most professional visual styles I have seen so far. Lovely work man. keep up the good work. *takes off to try downloading it again* minutes later...nope, it is not working... *she starts pulling her hair*

:glomp: I wanna :+fav: it.

Thanks for the favorite!! I'm glad you like my port. :)
You can download from my website.
Hot link...Click--->[link] ;)
pegah0304 Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2004
thanks a lot for your help ~ I was so close and then again it stopped more than halfway. But don't worry.. it must be from my sucking dial up service, whenever I am disconnected from the internet the downloading process stops. Gotta change my service ;) I downloaded another one your themes yesterday. but it worked. They are all just too great.

ohh man, you're like the only person to EVER fix the 'small' buttons (that show in photoshop etc) so that they don't looked chopped off, as far as mac based themes go.

*props* :nod:
hills-roppongi Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2004
Thanks for the comment. I fixed photoshop buttons referring to StefanKa's PantherSnow theme. ;)[link]

I have downloaded it and cannot seem to install it, can anyone help?

cubikal Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2004   Interface Designer
other than that i have no complaints.
cubikal Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2004   Interface Designer
one thing i notice is that the dialog font is big and gets chopped off. its usually called the $tahoma8$ font. if you would like a screenshot i could post one.
LStatie Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2004
This skin is amazing, will there be a WB4.2 version with these toolbar buttons ported as part of the skin?
