AJ deserves the credit for the cool stuff like the Start Panel - I just put it all together.

Wow, I've been hoping for weeks for someone to put out this skin. My wish came true. Great job!

Very strange. Does the preview look right? Check that it extracted correctly - there should be (I think) 151 files in the directory, excluding WBD files, and the .wba should be about 212k.

I really like how you used the Whistler look. This is the first Blackcomb skin that I actually like. Great job!

Really like the skin! It's become my favorite. Do have one question though - the 'rollup' option does not appear in all my windows. Should it be like that? I'm using WinXP.

It should not appear when the window is maximised, because rolling up when maximised is not generally a good idea (this is also why the maximise button is disabled when rolled up).

Thanks for your help - I wasn't sure if there might of been a problem with my PC or not. Great job!

Very nice skin, only funny thing is, that the roll-up button only appears when the window is not maximized (using XP prof, WB3.1). Other than that, it's beautiful.

Yep. Intentional. Rolling up when maximised can have bad effects on some systems (as can maximising when rolled up, which is also discouraged by removing the button).

Greenreaper - The titlebar shows in in the preview but disappears when i apply the skin. My fonts and sizes are windows standard. no funky stuff there. This is very odd. I do have 151 files. hmmmm

This skin is so good I actually made a background for this myself. It's simple but it looks good.

Mark: If you mean the checks on the titlebar disappear, they are supposed to disappear when a window loses focus. If this isn't what you mean, then you'll need to talk to Green, I only deal with the artistic side of things

CyBeRiANx: There may be a wallpaper for it in the works if I get time over the next few days.

I really like this skin a lot. Very good work! I have some problems with it though. A program that I use, dreamweaver (web page design program) has a properties window which has it's titlebar on the left side of the window. Your skin puts a titlebar on the top of it, which covers some options at the top. This doesn't happen with any other skins, if you could fix this I would be very greatful!

Nate: Does this happen with Watercolour, or with any other UIS1 skins (like the UIS1 subskin of "Docking Station")? If so, it's likely a problem with WB thinking that Dreamweaver is a normal window when it's not and so painting the titlebar. Not a lot I can do about this, unfortunately, other than advising you to use another skin for that app - and UIS1 was meant to be the _compatible_ format! *sigh*

Mike, Kosati: Erk. Not good. I've not had that reported anywhere else. Does inserting the line CaptionHeight=23 (or =24) in the [Metrics] section of Blackcomb.uis and reloading help in any way? Does this problem occur in Watercolour or other UIS1 skins?
