Vista RC2 - DOWNLOADABLE by JuanPerez Vista RC2 - DOWNLOADABLE by JuanPerez
DESCRIPTION UPDATE:

1.Please read the readmes (one for the WB skins and the other for Styler's toolbar) inside the rar file.
2.To change the user pic just click above the "Quick" word of the "Quick Access" phrase on the top of the start menu panel.
*3.About "maximized titlebars not being dark (or different for that matter)":

Unfortunately it would be impossible to use any other image for maximized titlebars unless you want to deal with big titlebars in little windows inside other programs (ie. the unmaximized windows of files you are working on in Photoshop, etc..).


*4.About my very Vista-like titlebar appearing on every application (not just the windows of windows explorer) [Thanks to PatrickEaves for reminding us this]:

A good option that would work on EVERY application you'd like, INCLUDING TASK MANAGER OF COURSE, would be to go to the WindowBlinds configuration:
-click "Per Application"
-click "Add per application setting"
-select application
-click on "Select skin..."
-select another vista-like skin you like

Keep in mind you would lose my very Vista-like titlebar on that application even if it is not maximized


* NOTE: For indications 3 and 4:
Believe me (I’ve used this skin for some time now) and can honestly tell you that after a short while you get totally used to and even start to like the very vista-like titlebar to appear on every maximized or unmaximized window. Doesn't matter if it's notepad, paint, or whatever application you are running, they start to look better and better


END OF DESCRIPTION UPDATE




Announcer:
"Here it is, the long wait is over! The Ultimate Vista Skinpack! It doesn't get any closer to looking like Windows Vista than this!"

Crowd:
"Booooooo, booooooo.... You can't trick us, it's just another one of those fake screenshots he likes to continually bug us with..! They are gross and simple unacceptable!, posting those screenshots is worst than committing murder!!"

Announcer:
"No it isn't a trick. It's a reality, JuaPerez has completed it and is sharing it with all of you believers and unbelievers!"

Believer dude at the crowd:
"Wait! look right there at the top-left corner of the page! It's the little orange monitor, it means this time it IS downloadable! I knew it!, I always believed in him!!"

Unbelievers (90% of the crowd):
"meh.. It looks alright and it is downloadable.. so what? it's not like we are any less cooler or respectable just because we disparaged him every single time we could"

Announcer:
"Very true harshful fellows.. and you shouldn't apologize in any way either. In fact you are a lot cooler now that your accusations proved to be totally precipitated and awfully chidlish"

Scion2142 (the one-skin-hit wonder Mr. NebulaBoy):
"Wait everybody, pls wait...! Look here..! Look back at me, PLEASE!! :( I'm the only one who can make worthful skins (Nebula anyone? or... or... or... ok JUST Nebula). Pay attention to me...! please! I SO need it...! Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :( "

Rubenernesto (the English Master):
"Mi skin isnt you have too in mi posecion from her/she/it/you brain for it/him is to likely for beeing too mine"

Announcer, Believers, Unbelievers, Scion2142:
"WTF WAS JUST THAT??????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

and the story goes on.....



Anyway, the important thing is that it's finally completed! I know it has some minor bugs which unfortunately can't be corrected.
Any unobvious perhaps correctable bug you may find please feel free to tell me.

Enjoy,
JuanPerez

How did you manage to hide Folder Menu? If i'm correct, its impossible to hide it while Styler toolbar is enabled.

There's a checkbox on the Styler application that allows you to do just that.

The buttons for going back, forward, and up a directory are located over the "Name", "Date Modified", and "Keywords" tabs.

Okay, so I understand that the reason my toolbar doesn't look the same as the one in your screen shot is because I don't have the toolbar styler program. But what I can't figure out is why my window's aren't transparent. The taskbar is transparent.. but the windows aren't. Here's a screenshot of your RC2 skin in action:

Is there another program I am missing?

JuanPerez Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2007
That usually means that either you don't have the complete (paid) Windowblinds 5 (a.k.a. Windowblinds XP) or that your video card doesn't support the transparency Windowblinds 5 uses.

I'm have troubles with this skin, or with the whole windowsblinds program. When i apply this skin (great skin by the way, congratulations), my yahoo messenger crashes all the time when i click on something. (emoticons, or games, or IMVironment or anything). Can someone help me please, i must use this skin, but with this error i can't.

I had a problem with Yahoo Messenger too way before making this skin. It definitely has some issues with WindowBlinds.

Sorry, I didn't find a solution back there when I was in the hype of trying out the Yahoo Messenger, I just gave up and sticked to Live Messenger... :(

Im not getting any new buttons and my explorer is the more or less the same
HELP PLS!!

Hello g0vZZ, it looks like either you don't have the complete/full/payed version of WindowBlinds 5 (aka WindowBlinds XP) or your graphic card doesn't support hte transparency used by WinowBlinds 5.

Also for the "tree", "thumbnails", "tile", etc buttons to appear there, you need the latest version of a program called Styler. That program will also let you hide the menu bar of your windows explorer windows.

That's a really cool skin. Too bad WindowBlinds and Styler won't give my shell full functionality like the real version of Vista would. You know how Windowblinds will let you add controls to the titlebar, WindowBlinds needs to add that same functionality to the start menu.

btw just thought u should know, there is a bug in the start menu: the coordinates of the log off and shut down buttons wont work on 1280*1024, i dunno about the other resolutions cause i didnt bother to try them. and also you might wanna try using a less pixelated picture for the windows vista sign when windowblinds loads [when it says please wait for like 2 seconds]

btw, to add to the trasparent effect, u should add an alpha map to the right click menu, the effect from vistaxp by kol is pretty good, just to give u an idea of what im trying to picture.

hope this helps with the next update 4 ur skin, if theres any update coming :D

:iconjuanperez:
JuanPerez Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2006
Thanks for all your suggestions PKKing. I will take a look and, if in fact wrong, correct the coordinates of those buttons.

As for transparency on the right-click menus, I intentionally didn't put any because I'm almost sure Vista RTM has no transparency on the right-click menu.. Correct me anyone please?

Updates on this skinpack have and will be made. Check my gallery for them.

hey man, thanks for releasing this skin

and about the styler toolbar navigation buttons , i keep hearing ppl complaining about them, in fact i find them a bit anoying myself. so i took the liberty to modify your styler theme, i've changed the buttons to the original back and forward so it now says what it actually does. i also added a few 3D effect so it 'sinks' into the window when u press it. and i was kind of wondering if u can give me the permission to re-release ur styler toolbar skin on this site, since there r so many ppl complaining about them. i'd be more than happy to send you all the development files in photoshop if u like, but they r just mainly tweaks of your work.

so plz get back to me at sauron_of_mordor@hotmail.com so i know if i can release the pack and you will be of course included in the credits. ;)
