CoverSutra visual style for Windows XP:

The style is slightly modified so I hope that you all will like it! ;)

Latest update: I was finished technically my work on shell style now, also I was added 4 variations with coversutra logo!

I presume that all those people which simply from some reason don’t like to use styles with Apple logo, will be pleased now!

Btw... If you notice anything unusual please report here. Thanks… ;)

CONTENTS:

CoverSutra visual style:

I don't know about that, but if you using some bright theme, you shouldn't worry! Beside, I can't remember because I'm not using XP anymore, but I think that background you can change from theme section somewhere in control panel.

Hey vladimir,
Please response to this message.
I already downloaded your theme. It was really great and cool. The texture and graphic is very nice.

Thanks, NightWolf

I didn't test style on low resolutions. So, maybe there is a problem with start menu in that situation but I can't fix that now since I'm not using windows anymore. But if I remember correct, you have option menu from where you can make icons smaller in start menu, so I suggest you to do that. Perhaps that will solve your problem...

Best ;)

hi vladimir. i installed your theme for xp. i got a question. in Display Properties, i set 'selected items' to the color red. say i got 2 windows, active and inactive. and say i select the active window where items in the active window are highlighted in red. but when i select the inactive window, the color of the highlighted items in the active window (now turned inactive) turn to a different color. how can i keep the color of highlighted items from changing when i select different windows?

You can't! When you change color scheme you change it for all windows. Temporary you can see previous color on windows which are inactive, but when you activate them windows will change color immediately. That change is permanent! So, this means, that you can’t keep colors from previous scheme on some windows or other elements. Things doesn’t work that way… sorry! :juggle:

I am afraid that's not going to happen, mostly because I'm not using windows anymore... So, I'm pretty much sure that I'm done with skinning...

Other than that, I can only add that you won't find dark theme for windows that are working properly. Fonts problem that you mentioned is the first thing but there are other similar problems, in certain programs, which are using they own skins or parts... In short, if you like dark themes and if you want to use them, then be ready to make certain sacrifices...

You really don't need 5 times to set completely the same comment here. What's wrong with you? As for your problem, you should sometimes read what is written here on the wall but also in the "read me" file in the pack. Then you will have your answer... Phuu...:smoking:
