There are 3 truetransparency's (all nearly the same), a black box skin, and a low-quality wallpaper. The wall is only 1280x800 but because it's so low in contrast, you can blow it up and it'll still look as it should.

Heavily inspired by:
Swayso's concept BAD DESIGN

I like the simplicity.

A little criticism about 3DCC scheme:
Some elements are invisible, eg inactive menu items - maybe it's intended, but imo this affects usability.

Thanks mate. :la:
It wasn't intended and I also haven't noticed it- I'm guessing that has to do with my using windows 7 rather than xp? Menu item inactive states show up like this for me: [link] :\

I did and I actually had a style that was almost identical but there were too many gray lines on window's surfaces so I opted to only have the 3dlight darkened. =\

you're welcome ^^
It's not a problem of 7. It takes just a little more fiddling around with 3DCC in order to have minimal scheme, but maintain the visibility of most window elements.
Quite many 3DCC schemes that people make have this problem actually.
Try if this suits better for you: [link]

It's a shell replacement.

Kind of like LiteStep or SherpE, but more leightweight.

There's many "flavours" of blackbox shell.
requestedRerun used bbLean.

Check the "Links" section at :iconblackboxdesktop: for more.
