-------------------

Whew. So the video player is done in LS. It is kinda sorta functional. The video comes from a DWM thumbnail of a winamp video and the buttons are overlays that control play/pause prev/next. While this sounds like it's pretty cool, it is an absolute nightmare to use (and DWM is a nightmare to work with in litestep). I would not recommend that anybody try this haha. Baaaad idea.

In retrospect, I should've spent the time on a small icon set, but last night literally the only night I had to work on this and by the time I was done with the video player, Faenza was looking especially nice to me :).

Other cool things: the bottom bar slides up serves as a launcher and taskbar. Pressing on the round switch hides the tasks and displays a dock-like launcher bar. Pressing the window icon next to it hides the launcher and brings up the taskbar. I wanted to show this functionality, but the taskbar is incomplete and again, I didn't have time to make icons to match the wood. Plus, when extended, the bottom bar is 70px tall and I know how much you guys hate big taskbars =P

PS Happy Earth Day!

You can do it with windows style builder (I forget the specific instructions but you basically make the toolbar a negative height)

Do you have any other True Transparency themes you could share please? I have been using lemonade for a while now and would like something different. Lemonade is the only good looking one I've seem to have found.

I will as soon as I can. I've been running on less than 3 hours of sleep a night for the past few months because of work, so I just don't have to time to get the theme ready for release yet. :(
