Animus VS by vladimir0523 Animus VS by vladimir0523
This is Animus visual style for XP.

Newer version of this style you can find here!: [link]

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

After my last two dark styles, which were very dark indeed, I was come to idea to make some style which will be in many ways opposite from the previous two, so that basically anyone can use it. This means that I was trying to make something more unique and useful for most people. The inspiration for this style I was take from the Animus machine in the Assassins Creed video game, so this style could be one more homage of mine.

I must add that I was made a dozen different buttons for it but finally I was decided to reduce things on 3 color scheme and 3 variations of buttons type, so I believe that anyone will find something interesting in it and I hope that it will be really easy to pick one favorite for use (or maybe not who knows, heh)! ;)

CONTENTS:

1. Animus VS
2. Additional shell style color schemes
3. Two Rhino Styler variations (Basic & Extended)
4. Installation guide

Credits going to fediaFedia for Longhorn shell styles:[link]


p.s.

I didn't have much time to test this style because I was been focused on design and sometimes some really tiny details in it, so If you find any issues please report here.

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

Hope you'll enjoy it... ;)

Additional installation info:

To use any of these styles you’ll need to patch your windows! To do that follows these links:

Windows XP - SP2: [link]
Windows XP - SP3: [link]


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

It seems that many people have problem to figure how to install styler theme and especially additional shells style variation, so I was repack this style in self extracting archive! I believe now that all people will have no problem to install everything what they need (even those less experienced)… ;)

Animus VS by ~vladimir0523 This theme is what the skinning community is all about. Animus took all the feedback he recieved and tweaked it to create a suberb and stylish VS. I look forward to his next one ;-) ( Featured by mrrste )

This theme is awesome. I have a suggestion though.

You know the start menu? have you considered making it change colour? as in, when it's loading, you could have the red icon thing.

By the way, this does work on vista. im using it right now!

That’s not going to happen soon, mostly because I’m not familiar with any decent style maker (if there is any) for vista or win 7.

This theme is amazing. I wish I had found it sooner. Sadly I now have Windows 7 and cannot enjoy it. Any change you'll have an update to run on windows 7 now that AC2 is out?
Cheers

I was working a bit more on this style lately since the second game is out! I didn't finish my work on it, but as you said this one is for XP. I was installed Win7 yesterday to make some running tests, so if I decide to keep him then maybe there is a chance that I will make conversation for seven soon... ;)

I don't know, don't use 7 and I didn't try it until now! But I doubt... It seems that we all will switch to 7 soon, so you can expect conversation for it in the near future... ;)

Amazing, I only have one thing. The scrollbar needs some work. It kind of doesn't fit in, and its kind of ugly. Otherwise, amazing theme, I love it, and I'm using it :D
Reply
:iconvladimir0523:
vladimir0523 Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Well, no one was complaining on that one… Personally, I think that scrollbar is pretty unique and that is in my humble opinion stronger part of this style! So unless you don’t give me something more than that it’s ugly/don’t like it statement, I don’t have much more to add…

But no matter on that one, one is certain… I’m pretty much sure that I am done with this style! ;)
