VistaXP 4074 Mod by hiromoshi VistaXP 4074 Mod by hiromoshi
VistaXP 4074 Beta 1

Mod of VistaXP 3.1

This is a beta version and updates will come regularly, although I dont know when I'll get them out, I wont go
and release two very similar themes. My hopes is to include various subthemes with differant taskbars and flags,
but this will do for now.

-Important Notes-

This theme is NOT compatible with anything but Windowblinds 5.0 Enhanced, the trial will NOT run it well.

Your video card MUST be able to do the alpha blending effects of the theme, otherwise it WILL be bugged.

There is only one theme, no subthemes are made yet but that might change in the near future.

Cel_Damage requested that the text in the menu bar be changed, Im keeping the explorer unaltered from VistaXP,
it's already the best it's going to get.

This is a mod of VistaXP 3.1 by KoL of StudioTwentyEight, all I did was redo parts of it to sport 4074 features.

KoL gave his permission to release this MOD.

This is a beta, and feedback is welcome.

dude i love this more like any other wbs but since i have updated to wb 6.1 build 55 my taskbar is bigger and it shows not just the time it even shows the "day" too so i guess its a fault with the font, with font do u use with this? ;<

This is nice. The only thing that I think should really be changed is the fact that things in the taskbar are so close together. There should really be some space between things.

Pretty good though. :)

Either your graphics card is not compatible, or you're using the trial version of windowblinds (wow, just realised that I'm replying to a day less than a year old comment)

smh.. for all the people having problems with this theme, or any themes.. have it set to not "skin" the programs that it keeps "crashing".

Still not the same as in Vista, no blurring in titlebar and cleartype font looks horrible, but no can do :P

Otherwise very good skin.

i installed this skin.. and it was running well on my computer.. great job anyway..

I just uninstalled and reinstalled again and everything is fine on this end, but I'll look at it with a few other people and see what we can come up with.

Well, I don't know about anybody else, but while this skin was loading, it crashed everything I had running...Photoshop, Object Dock, Trillian, my AV and spyware programs and then it only half loaded, messages of everything crashing popping up everywhere.
I have the latest build of WB5 (paid for, registered, etc), don't ever have any problems loading new skins, so "Beta" is a very appropriate word for this one. I managed to get another skin loaded and then had to reboot. All seems fine now, but just letting you know something is not right. I hope I'll get to see more than a half loaded program crashing version in the near future. :)
hiromoshi Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2006  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Hm its not loading for you? It loads fine over here, infact I uninstalled and reinstalled it right now.. I know it doesnt like Photoshop AT ALL, but it does that with every theme of mine.
boss019 Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2006
A fair amount of WB5 skins need to be applied twice to get them to fully load. But they don't start crashing everything else running on my computer. And it was weird, while WB had the "Please Wait" dialog going while it was loading, all my programs started popping up the "This program has encountered an error and needs to close" window.
Just letting you know, maybe others will have this problem. I change skins a lot and usually try everything that comes out, including importing a lot of Visual Styles and don't have any problems. Thanks for the response. :)

close ALL programs running and then apply the skin. every skin will fail even the most simple ones.
hiromoshi Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2006  Hobbyist Interface Designer
No problem, its dissapointing that it doesn't work on your PC, I'll work on it more and toil with it and just keep trying out new builds and see how it goes. I also updated it with a better start menu, so try it now, maybe something tweaked and it'll work on your machine again.
