Just installed this.. was sick of my WinOSX Mac theme.
And found the last Vista Beta i tried practically unusable (it was a couple of betas back but was a tremendous memory hog). Anyways, install this on XP to get the nice shiny appearance of Vista.
The only problem is it doesn't 2 of my favourite features of Vista on it:
- the collage of screenshots showing the contents in a video folder,
- and also liked the fact Vista picked a random screenshot in a video to use as it's thumb, rather than XP's standard first frame (which is typically a black screen!)
Anyways, much recommended!
Have a variation on this myself, looks great.
There are others here for your perusal... Ah it's that Crystal Clear one I have.
Ooohh.. cheers for that The Gnome. The Crystal XP pack is "teh sex"!
Think i'll stick with my Vista theme for now though!
Are these things heavy on the cpu/memory? Like is this likely to affect my gaming? They do look funky.
You stay away from it!!
I sugest using this for xp themes: http://www.neowin.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=140707
And then look here for themes: http://www.neowin.net/forum/index.php?showforum=36 and also here http://browse.deviantart.com/customization/skins/windows/visualstyle/
It's basically a cracked version of the file that windows use for themes. Ones cracked you can use any of the visualstyles i linked to instead of the default xp ones. I might be wrong about this but as its a windows component (cracked) i assume it would use up less resources than any 3rd party programs?
Haha , the voice in my head is saying run away, but the sparkly lights are screaming out bling bling.
I used that vista Inspirat theme basquille started the thread about - no difference whatsoever to my games, at least, nothing I noticed. A pretty decent theme though. Reverted back to my old XP style though eventually - got bored of the 'vista' one
Have you try thisone?
I use this for ages now and have no problem with it, even boot screen is Vista
GO FOR IT man! I have the Vista Inspirat theme myself it kicks tail.
Same as me own now, real purteh.
Thanks OP this is very very cool! Absolutely loving it so far, the navabar at the top is excellent.
The only thing is that it has changed some of the find in e.g. firfox and it looks a bit graney, anyone know how to get it back to normal?
Not sure if its a new shortcut but right click on it properties and navigate to the old shortcut in program files firefox proably.
Gah... i LOATHE Objectdock myself!
So it's basically the Vista non 3d card scheme, which is basically a grey XP...
