I have just installed the objectdock and I am looking for setting your own theme...

Concerning the toolbar, it didn't work , this is always there... Maybe I did something wrong few months ago, need just to find what D:D like uncheck some vista F**** box :P

Anyway I am interested in knowing how you did all these modifications... did u used any tutorial, could you just indicate me where I can find it ?

thks for everything

oh ok :D just right click on the dock and choose dock settings :) and there u go
for the themes put ehm in program files>stardock>objectdock>backgrounds>non-tabbed
and they will appear in the appearance setting ^^


hmm depends on what u mean.
if u mean like text colors and some other colors its mostly hex editing
and thats kinda hard if u dont know what ur doing, took me a while to get how to do it!
other than that i use restorator and photoshop to cuztomize my stuff
and realworld icon editor to make icons
and tune-up utillities to change icons and stuff
but u can use stardock iconpackager to change icons to
but i never got it to work in vista!

Hey thks a lot, now I have a full customized desktop :p

I'll look later to the software u mentioned to see what I can learn with them :p

Now I am sure you are still workin' on the transblack theme.

Here are some little stuffs I noticed... but it is easier to notice things than doing things...ahaha

- Maybe it could be interesting to invert the text color of IE7's adress bar. cause when it is inactive, the text is as dark as the background... don't know if it is your own choice or if it is hard to do :(:(:(

- Then inside the start menu, is it possible to make dark the background of the "All programs" section ? and of course make white the color of the text ?

Hope I'll discover new deviations from u soon
good luck

hey np :D put a screenshot up ;)

yeah sure do that ^^, its fun, but it takes lotsa time to change images and colors and stuff :(

uuh yeah i saw that, i dont use IE myself cuz.. it sucks (A) so i use firefox and never noticed it.. and i have changed it for my V.2, but i think il change it for the V.1 and put up new files.

hmm i know how to make the background darker but not the text white.
havnt found any tutorial for it so..
and everyone i ask that knows hex editing to dont know so its hard. if i found out i will change it.

yeah u will (;
thx alot bud

OOooOOoopsss

I am replying to myself because I found another evidence of my stupidity :P

Concerning the toolbar... it was easy....folder options/ and uncheck the box "always show menus"

ahaha !!!!!

I am maybe not ready to create my own theme with such a brain ~~~~

Hey man,

I really appreciate the work you did on this vista theme and I just installed the "Transblack Final" you released.

so first of all thks !

Because I am new in customization, could you answer me few questions ?

I was wondering why your folder's toolbar (file|Edit|View|Tools|Help) is hidden and not mine ? maybe it is because I haven't done something correctly... actually I haven't copied your browseUI.dll because I feared doing something wrong....

How did you do to have this black bar at the bottom of your desktop (like if it was a mac) ... I understood that you changed the skin but is this object bar a vista gadget ?

thank you and tell me if you do not understand what I mean, my english is not that good :P

thx alot dude =)

ok. i rly dont know why u have it
cuz thats not on default
have u tried open explorer and just hit "alt" on ur keyboard? and right click on it and select "lock the toolbars" thats should work

no playing with system files is not good if u dont know what ur doing,.. can fuck up lots of stuff

the buttom is my own objectdock theme
so yeah. u need objectdock and my theme to do that ^^

:iconinvaderjohn:
invaderjohn Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2008
how do u mean?:P
the icons?
or the background color?
cuz the colors is hex editing, and some res editing!
other than that its just icons i did myself :D

Reply
:iconinvaderjohn:
invaderjohn Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2008

and XVI32 for hex editing.
and there are some tutorials on the net,
even though i had the guess my way to lots of stuff xD

Great work! You know, I was really excited about Aero when I first got Vista until I saw your visual style. It makes Aero look like Win98 ^^.
