Beautiful theme, perfect

One question. What's the purpose of replacing shell32 if none of the extras do anything to it?
piggyslav Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2009
Or can you make this whole theme for 64 bit? I would pay for it.
piggyslav Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2009
This is the best theme I have ever seen.
I tried it half a year ago and it worked perfectly, but I'm using vista 64 bit now. If I change *.dll files my OS won't boot. I just want to ask If you could make those dlls for 64 bit. I would really appreciate it.

Thanks piggyslav

By far the most beautiful and I dare say the most perfect VS for vista to date.
Everything about this theme is amazing. It's one and only fault is that the taskbar doesn't flash/blink when for example a new message is received in messenger and so.

I really hope you'll add this feature someday. It's really important you know ^^!

Great work. Thank you very much for sharing~

This is the best overall theme I have found. I've been through so many themes and finally I find this! This is the one, exactly what I was looking for. Thanks for making this awesome VS, finally I can end my search for the perfect Vista theme.. :-)

This theme has to be the cleanest and smoothest that I've seen so far and I love the darker look and color of the shell and taskbar - it's definitely the best blackish theme out there for vista in my opinion. Excellent excellent excellent theme.

I like this theme but I wonder if its possible to change the orb on the start bar? I want to put a red orb but i cant find the file to it

Hi there!

First of all, very well done theme.
I like the black window borders very much, exactly what I was searching for!

But the scrollbar style is a little "too much", they somehow look out of place in most windows.

So, pretty please, Is there a possibility to do a mod with light scrollbars too?

And, I recognized a little glitch in the progress bar of the "standard programs" window, while it still searching.

Kind regards,

Look at the link i posted on page, it is a quiz to test your wabbitness...

This is text from quiz:

What makes a person a wabbit? Is it their funnynessness? There COOLNESS?! If you as me wabbits are cool, smart, funny, and friendly(ish). This test will help people find out whether or not they are a wabbit or a dumb bunny that no one likes.

Use this quiz to find whether YOU have what it takes to be a wabbit! Until now you didn't have the slightest idea, or did you. Grab your noodle guns and web shooters and it's time to find out!
whitestwidow Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2008
