Goof job man!!!
JimmiG Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2007
Just one minor thing.. It would be nice if the close button of maximized windows was placed at the corner of the screen rather than a few pixels in. This is common sense in GUI design as it makes the button much easier to hit as you just move the cursor to the edge of the screen and click. Now you have to actually aim for the button which takes time and effort. Otherwise it's very nice work. Great work on the transclusent window titles, many themes make them too transparent which can be extremely confusing since XP lacks the blur effect of Vista. Your theme also makes it very easy to see which window is active, another thing which many theme designers overlook.

This skin is definitely a keeper. Awesome job.

I am having a bit of a problem with the start menu. I'm not able to use the icons as displayed on the preview image for folders such as my computer and control panel. Any comments or suggestions?

Maybe a stupid question, but whats the difference between eminence and and eminence sx. I understand cx but sx??

drucpec Featured By Owner May 15, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
looks really nice...going to try it out!
Xivaque Featured By Owner May 3, 2007
:o awsome skin! But the tool bar, start, and the program files don't show the skin :\ everything else does, and I'm really impressed!
JacobGrimm Featured By Owner May 3, 2007
I actually dig the look of this with one exception -

The tooltip text is nearly unreadable. Hovering over anything makes it beyond incredibly hard to read.

I know someone pointed this contrasting difference out over on WinCustomize, so I apologise for repeating it.

Hey, I can't seem to find a workable link for DarkBliss. Got a link to the wallpaper that works, perferrably 1600x1200 if not widescreen?

port it to VS
Sophieluva Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2007
Aww, it's so annoying how you have to pay for windowsblinds. other than that this is brilliant :)
JesseLax Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2007  Professional Interface Designer
This is an amazing skin with an equally amazing wallpaper.
I'm pretty fickle about my desktop; I change it like every day... until I got this one.

I can see why it got a DD.
Great job. :nod:

oak-asylum Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2007
hey, im using this. it looks great. but can i ask how you get your icons like that?
jaixii Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2007
what happened to the old Eminence Logo and "Please Wait" screens? The new one is kind of bland, and the logoff/shutdown dialog text is VERY pixelated. I just reinstalled Windowblinds, and this used to be my standard skin, but I think I'm going to have to shop around now...
lcwarf Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2007
Never mind found objectdock. Where did you get the icons?
lcwarf Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2007
Why can't I get the desktop items the way you have them in your picture? Is it part of your skin or is it something else you have on your comp?
megadude Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2007
I use this skin...and i must say... It's quite Godly. :) Great work. :D

I can honestly say I've viewed a number of different skins out there, especially ones that offer transparent toolbars and menubars and startmenus, and whatnot, and I can say this is one of the best ones I've used. I love the dark color, the compact menus and of course the transparent toolbars, titlebars, etc. I love the simplicity of this skin.

I just realized that you updated this skin and well I just installed the updated version and found it to be even better then the previous version. With this update I think I can honestly say this is one of the best skins ever! :+fav:

its a really nice skin, the only thing I have against it, is the when windows flash, they go a dirty orange colour, which I don't like.
anarchy-of-the-mind Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2007
i use this theme its the best i've ever used
DaWolferzz Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2006
Your theme looks very nice, however, I cannot load it. Why do you not have this as a suite file? or a uis? or something that would allow someone with the Alienware theme manager to load it? I have loaded other windowblinds files without problem, but this one will not load with windowblinds ver
