Extremely unique and nice! Good work..
All you need now is to mod explorer.exe for the logoff/shutdown buttons

Nice, but the min/max buttons need some work.
I like the way you've done the black, looks good!

Start button and app tab states need some work, too.

Just a little more, and this could be a great theme!

Satukoro Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2008
i couldn't think of what to do for min|max|close or the start button. those are always the hardest part of a theme. I didn't even think about tabs.. jeez.

Thanks for the constructive criticism =D

Certainly :)

There are all small tweaks, that, if you got them right, you'd have a fantastic theme. Not to mention one i'd use ;)

:bulletgreen:Task Bar:
:bulletblue:Bar:
Less gradient, make darker.
:bulletblue:Start button:
Something less glossy, and no attached to either edge. perhaps a slightly rounded red rectangle. No white outline
:bulletblue:Expand system tray:
Only show on mouse over
:bulletblue: Task bar size: slightly thinner would be good.

:bulletgreen:Application tabs:
:bulletblue:Active:
Show white text
:bulletblue:Inactive:
Show grey text
:bulletblue:Mouse over:
Show tab as slightly lighter than the taskbar, and show white text
Alert: Flash same red as start button with white text

:bulletgreen:Windows:
:bulletblue:Borders:
Make white outline on windows darker to match outlines on start menu
:bulletblue:Min/Max buttons:
use same button as 'forward' but smaller, and rotated to up and down for min/max, user larger button for close, make same red as start button.
:bulletblue:Location bar:
If you can make this black like you have with the search bar, it would look better
:bulletblue:Application menu strip:
The bar between file actions (file, edit search etc) and the icons below it would look better black

Well then...

Task Bar:
=Bar: I was thinking about that.
=I don't know what you mean precisely, but for now, I shall keep my start button the way it is.
=Task Bar Size is already as thin as it gets.

App Tabs:
=I don't believe you can change the inactive text color.
=I have yet to find the Alert Image, but I know its there.

Windows:
=Borders are already the same color, they just look different in contrast.
=Min/Max/Close... I'm not sure how that would look, but I will try it.
=Location bar is tricky to work, but I know what you mean.
=I cannot find the app menu strip. but still, i will find it soon.

Your style is very nice, but please make more out of this. A good shell, leftside dark in a folder and many more.

I dislike any green part of this.

But the rest is great. Keep the good work. I'm hoping for a updated release.

Ok, I admit, taskbar buttons do look rather similar, but it was the only thing that would fit the rest of the vs.

ohwell. i feel the whole concept is kinda of look-a-like the startbutton, gradient colors and the taskbar buttons.
