VXP... A Modern Classic


After months in development I am finally ready to release the final version of the VXP Visual Theme from Maxstyles.com

We have worked hard to make this theme the best it can be and think that you will find it easy on the eyes and easy to use for long periods of time.

We set out to make a more modern classic looking theme and hope that it will turn out to be a classic in the enduring sense of the word.

Icluded are:

14 walls designed to compliment the style.

Explorer bar icons (only aplicable with stylexp (www.tgtsoft.com)

5 Substyles - Compact and regular styles with two different sets of caption buttons for each. Plus one Bonus Style (requested)

Shellstyles for all substyles.

The iChat-VXP skin (By Danimator) For the Trillian Messenger Application.

Rainlender skin and Logon Screen for logonstudio By Athletictrainer1981

and FONTS !! IF U DO NOT INSTALL THE FONTS THE STYLE WILL NOT APPEAR CORRECTLY !!!

Please feel free to comment on our work as it really is what makes it all worthwhile.

Also please visit our site for more of our work @ [link].

Thanks to all my Beta Testers for their help, suggestions and patience.

Enjoy !!

vStyler.

Awesome !

My only request is a start menu without the "start", just the logo (yes, it would be a small button). I love it the way it is, but for non-english localizations it would be nicer...

Congratulations ! Best VS in a long time...

It is explained in preface what the additional skins are for..if you had read it that wouldnt be an issue.

There is nothing wrong with putting a rar inside a zip, makes filesize smaller AND it was how it was recieved my me from the author.

The explorer bar icons look awful when applied by yztoolbar, i do NOT suggest using them in that manner as they will not look how they were designed to.

Thankyou for ALL your comments tho. 'Preciated

If the thumbs.db is getting on your nerves.. my advice would be delete it? One click.

If u dont have font smoothing turned on in XP by now then maybe further customization isnt for u.

It was nice for 10 minutes...switching back to Codename: Opus (which doesn't require font smoothing to look good)

The readme file is incomplete! It would be nice to know that those other skins are for Trillian and Rainlender. Also, the font smoothing info should be included.

The explorer bar icons can be applied using Y'z Toolbar, not just Style XP.

Why are there ZIP & RAR in the same archive?

Thumb.db files remain in archives.

However, I do appreciate all the work that went into this, it really is great and the wallpapers are very nice... the whole look is just not easy to get used to for me as I'm hooked on Codename: Opus like a hooker on crack. Can't wait to see what's next though!

:D

I have really been taken with this skin; it's one of the few skins that brings something entirely new to the table, whilst re-working a boring old default.

This skin begs to be downloaded ... don't go by first impressions and ignore it, it's one of those skins that needs to be installed to understand it's beautiful design qualities.

Well, i cant imagine what ur doing wrong, the style has been tested by hundreds of people and it hasnt been an issue, th eonly thing i can think of is that you are using large or extra large fonts and VXP was not designed fo those options.

SOrry i had forgotten about the other two fonts, it actually only uses 3 of then but i neglected to remove other two from zip.

i have installed all 5 fonts, and i still get a deformed "all programs" bit.

is there more fonts, or have i dont something else wrong?

I just set the theme through the appearence tab on desktop, then set a background and installed the fonts.

Switch your font effects from "Standard" to "Clear Type" located in your display settings.

Wonderful!!
However, I also have a problem with this Visual Style.
I've already installed those fonts though, but my "All Program" link still looks different from the preview screen.
I don't know why.... but I guess the cause is that my PC is not in English.
If I want my PC to look like the preview, do I need to change my own language to English?

do you install tnblank font already ?
to view all programs correctly, you need to install this font.

:iconsaints-knight:
Saints-Knight Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2005
sorry, i don't know why you still have all programs problem = =".
tnblank font will hide all programs letter.

if u can, do it.
take picture out and use only word then all program error will disappear.
