Transblack FINAL v1 by invaderjohn Transblack FINAL v1 by invaderjohn
Transblack FINAL version is out

i call this version 1
cuz u thinking of doing more stuff on it
and maybe change som mayor stuff
il see what it turns out

i know there maybe will be som minor stuff i could work on
but hey.. im just a living person
it would take ages to work on it all
and thats why i call this V.1

as u can see in the preview i included som stuff
i didnt include the OD skin cuz, everyone doesnt use that
so u can find it in my gallery

i wanna thank :icontommyboyhr:
for helping me out with some resource searching
and giving some advice

and i wanna thank all guys out there who have given me credits making me wanna work harder on this

i rly hope u enjoy this for now


use vistaglazz (google) then patch ur windows file so u can use an visualstyle

put the folder in normal or autohide
in the windows>resources>themes folder
then go in personalize>window color and apparence then open classic appearance properties to change it

the browseui.dll i recommend to use either total commandor or restorator to change it, its located in windows>system32 folder, in restorator just run it as administrator open the browseui.dll from my theme, and replace it (make a backup of the old one, i think restorator do that for u)

and it should work after u restart explorer

im sry for my bad english!

I like it very much and use it on both my laptops - you did a wonderful job! It goes really good with both google chrome and firefox (4 beta). And nive wallpapers!

Actually, i like this one better than the second version - i tried these too but it didn't seem to work as well, so i stayed with this one.

Thanks for doing these!

good job

VERY nice, I have been looking for a nice skin like this for a long time. its really hard to find a nice, simple, dark skin that isn't over the top with crazy (Impressive, yet Memory intensive) effects. As a Web Designer, I try to keep projects functional, elegant, and easily used, this is just that, simple, effective, easy to use. Thank you.

anyone got links for working x64 sp2 browserui.dll, all the links i've tried crashs pc help me out :(
jdabbott51 Featured By Owner May 14, 2010
Hey. Just a heads up. As someone who uses their computer daily for work and needed a serious change of scenery to look at, I went through and tried various of these differing visual styles. When it comes to aesthetics and functionality (ie it works with MS Office) Yours bar none is the best. Your getting a big fav from me. If you were to put a nature background in the preview shot it would really compliment the reality of this better.

Absolutely amazing and very detailed visual theme!

And for those who are struggling with patching the browseui.dll in system32, I'd like to share this small app (all credits to Xpero!):


TakeControl is a small unlocking utility for Vista only. It's a fully working beta and trust me, it's alot easier to use than Total Commandor or Restorator. No installation needed and the main window, well, it's as simple as possible.

What I did:

1) Opened TakeControl, clicked the "Add" -button and searched for "browseui.dll"
2) Clicked the "Take control" -button
3) Took backup of the file by renaming it to "browseui_old.dll"
4) Pasted the new browseui.dll from the visual theme

...and vóila!

And if you are experiencing problems with 4), try the following:

1) Rename the new browseui.dll you are about to use to "browseui_new.dll"
2) Paste it to /system32
3) Rename it to "browseui.dll"

I hope this helps!

Nice. I'm still trying to decide what to think of it, but it might just beat out Nooto VS on my list...

I have a bit of a problem actually... There's a space between the bottom of my screen and the bottom of the taskbar... How can I get rid of it?

Man, I'd love to have one like this for Windows 7! Excellent skin! :)
Darkened-One3894 Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2009
I put the folder with the normal transblack style in it into the themes folder, like you said to. My system files are patched, and I'm able to load other themes too. But, when I open the "classic appearance properties" dialog box, transblack doesn't appear, and I think it's because it doesn't have an actual theme file, just the visual style. Any idea what I should do?
berky93 Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2009  Student Digital Artist
I really like this style. The only problem is, since I applied it, no matter what style I pick, the "back" and "forward" buttons in windows explorer do not change. is there a way to fix this?

Penicilyn Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2009
Any chance of updating it so it'll work with SP2 x64?

it's my favourite theme but doesn't seem to work with SP2.
Penicilyn Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2009
Silly me, got it to work. Just needed fresh .dll's for SP2
acrcool245 Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2009
How did you do it?, what .dll are you talking about?, are you talking about the .dll you have to patch in windows sp1 to have the customs visual styles?, re-patch it again?
Penicilyn Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2009
yeah I repatched with a new set of .dlls
stewartjsly Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2009
