the design style is very nice.. simple but clean and flat, without the edges and distractions of the normal windows theme and fancied up custom skins. Runs quickly. I hope you continue to refine.

I really enjoy this skin.. I'm really snooty about what windowblinds skins I like and this one definately made my top 10 list I think it's much better than 3 stars. AMAZING first try! I look forward to your future submissions

Although I personally wouldnt want to use an all blue skin, you did a great job on it anyway.

5 Stars.

Yes, this would make it insanely awesome to me.

Okay...it seems that you want a smaller taskbar and titlebar. I have made a mock up, and it looks quite good in my opinion, so expect to see that in the next update.

The tabs have been fixed in the version that I am working on.

The the unfinished buttons have been fixed.

I have created a nicer loading bar...lime green

I will include the old task button with the skin, but not as a substyle...sorry.

Thanks for taking the time to help me out

PS: The screen shots really helped.

Edit: How do I fix the "no thumbnail" problem when previewing the skin.

This is a nice skin, but I would personally like to see a standard start menu to compliment the compact one.

The update already has a standard startmenu. I just prefer the compact, which is why it is in the preview.

The toolbar (Back, Search, etc...) is showing the older xp icons. infact, all the themes are showing that instead of the theme toolbar icons. How do I get themes (espicially this one) to show the new toolbar?

Nice! I like blue!
If I may be so bold, I would like to see the hover version of the start button more bold(ie. colorful)...very washed out and pale on my machine. Also, some glow effects with more color on buttons would be nice too! the blue min/max buttons are kinda hard to tell there on...
Just a couple of ideas for you! love the skin though! Especially for your first - I have been wanting to do one for a long time, but just not willing to attempt it!

The toolbar icons that I am using are from...Aura...I think. I am not at home right now so I am not sure. The system icons are crystal style, I am not sure the full name right now. Just search for crystal in the icon packages section.

Sorry, I cannot be more specific.

PS: I am looking for some skin testers. My email is in the skin information, so just let me know if you are interested.

Thanks,

Looks spectacular, but it's a little big for me. I prefer thin skins, myself.

A really nice & balenced skin, can u release a version in black color, & vertical shellstyle like default Windows XP. Rest looks good, but the titlebar is very fat, a 20 pixel fat is good enough for this skin.

good looking take on XP

I think I may be the only one thinking this, but, I suggest leaving the titlebar & taskbar teh size they are. I think they are just right.

The skin overall is exactly what I was wanting. It isn't overhauled with junk but it doesn't leave you wanting much either. A great skin, imo.

Looks like a good skin. I've tried to install it twice and get the default windows xp skin and loose my title bar and everything. The preview doesn't even show up in the WB skin select window. My computer is top of the line and I have WB5. I would like to try your skin...don't know what the problem is yet.

Hey, when you download the skin. Do you get something like Xpformat.wba.zip ? Just wondering, it may just be me. Thanks,

file naming problem exists. skin preview not working...
Link
'XPFormat.ssd' file content should below
----------------------------------
[SkinStyles]
Number=2

[SkinStyle0]
Name=XP Format Full
Skin=XPFormat.uis

[SkinStyle1]
Name=XP Format Compact
Skin=XP Format Compact.sss
--------------------------------------
so, delete old 'XPFormat.uis'
rename 'XPFormatFull.uis' ---> 'XPFormat.uis'

author's repackaging required.
