TransblackV2 by ~invaderjohnThis skin just makes Vista Visual Styles rule. One of the best, if not the best, VS on Vista so far. ( Featured by mrrste )

Cool. I'm so sick of having a blazing white background, so this was perfect. The slimmer taskbar is sweet too. Thanks for the hard work!

One question, will this work with SP2?
G33kounet Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2009
Awesome VS, the best I've seen so far.
Just wondering though: what did you in the dll files (except putting up the preview bar in explorer) ?

okay, the first version had an awesome titlebar, where did that go? is it possible to bring it back in transblack 3?
maxxfree Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2009
Thanx a lot. This is the best theme I ever seen and I'm using this on my computer long time. But I wanna ask you if should be possible also change preview pane to dark coloured.Becouse everything is beautyfuly dark, only preview pane is white. If you can solve it your theme will be absolutely gorgeous!!! thanx again you are the best.

Too much bewel n' emboss effect
Bilouba Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2009  Student Digital Artist
I really love that VS, and I am using it for about 2 month but there a few thing that may be change.
I mean, in fact, only one : the vanishing of the "close, minimize, reduce button" buttons when a windows isn't selected. It's annoying to seek for them.
Please tell me if I could do something about it. Thank in advance and thank you for that beautiful visual style (and the rocketdock skin too!) :D
invaderjohn Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2009
thx for ur feedback :)

but this isnt something om gonna re-new :P since its one of the first i made and im not that into it xD
