Awesome. Too bad that you used Paint though. Because Paint is lacking alot of tools that could be used. But you are alot more skilled with Paint than I could ever dream of being, lol.

Great work, for using paint, really - it takes alot for me to compliment something that was done in Paint.

I'll be watching for a release of the VS, so I can try it out.

If it makes it any easier, try making it into a WindowBlinds skin. It's got alot of features that Windows alone don't have, to make skinning a breeze, and adding features that can make the VS even better.

Just to clarify, I (probably, it's been so long) only used paint for the pixel on the caption bar, window borders, etc. The stripes on the caption bar were done in Photoshop. Basically, I prefer Paint as a quick, per-pixel editor, but I use Photoshop for any of the complicated stuff.

Do you know of any good pixel tutorials out there? I wanna learn how to do pixels, they confuse me, not much to work with especially when they're 24x24, and I really wanna be able to work with it at that size, as best I can, and practice.

When I say pixel work, I'm referring to doing per-pixel editing/creation, as in pixel by pixel. A pixel is the smallest possible unit on your monitor or in a piece of digital art. When you pick the pencil tool in mspaint, you're working with an individual pixel size. There are no 24x24 pixels, but rather documents that are 24 pixels by 24 pixels.

A lot of borders and other simple graphics in visual styles are most easily achieved by constructing them pixel by pixel. The more complex graphics, like gradients and caption bar graphics could be done this way, but it would obviously be a much more tedious process.

Oh wow, that really helps alot! I think I can go ahead and give it a go, without a tutorial now. Thanks for the information my friend. :)

do you still have that hacked run dialog?
the one from wint isnt really what im looking for.
nitzua19's avatar
nope. i rehacked mine to take out the 'ok' button. the run dialog is totally visual as far as how you edit it in reshacker tho, except for the font size/face.

nitzua19's avatar
i had a lot of requests for it back in the day, but i never gave it out because it wasn't quite finished. it's pretty easy to recreate tho, let me know if you need any help doing so.
customiz3r's avatar
