Nice update! Now please, make a version with smaller titlebar and taskbar!

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.

love the skin any luck with the control panel error?

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?

Awesome update rj. Keep up the good work!

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!

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.

In this update, the restore/resize button for all the windows doesnt show up unless you click it. Only way to make the windows not full screen is to double click the bar.

I like the green loading bar better than the blue one also.

The min, max/restore buttons must be per pixeled? they dont work on my laptop. The rest of the skin looks good, but i get the old xp min/max bottons.

Just discovered this beauty! Thanks!
Comment #33 Sunday, May 07, 2006 7:23 PM
Alright fellow Wincustomizers, I need your help. Why is there no preview of the "window bar" in the Windowblinds config? I have no idea why. Please I will appreciate any help that you give.



PS: I will be releasing an update soon!
Comment #34 Saturday, April 29, 2006 9:51 AM
file naming problem exists. skin preview not working...
'XPFormat.ssd' file content should below

Name=XP Format Full

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

author's repackaging required.

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

It's a 1st class clean skin now, well done. But still i want a mini version with smaller titlebars and taskbar.

Comment #38 Saturday, May 13, 2006 4:24 PM
Much better! But the "log off" and "shut down" buttons are missing in the start menu and the font is still too large on menus and buttons. Getting a lot better! Keep up the good work!
Comment #39 Saturday, May 13, 2006 6:00 PM
Nice update yet again!

I defenitly liek the new taskbar w/ glow letters.

Comment #40 Sunday, May 14, 2006 12:38 AM
I really dont think the size of the font is too large. Do you have Segoe UI installed? From here, the fonts seem normal. Have you increased the dpi on your monitor? :?
