I wanted to make a red and black theme that took advantage of the dramatic contrasts that this color combo can achieve.

It's been described many ways by folks as I have been building it... devilish, menacing, provocative, wikked, luminescent, masterpiece, fierce, ''pushing the envelopes''  However you may feel about it after loading it up I truly hope that enjoy the experience. It has been a challenging and time consuming theme to construct.

All matching skins will be loaded soon on Wincustomize.com, and there are a bunch, and lastly as I have mentioned before all truly dark skins will have a couple of areas here and there that can cause problems, mostly in MS Office, I have included a light version for each OS. There is also a winflag Start button alternative included in the zip that can be dropped in the WB folder.

Please leave your thoughts on this theme, thanks and Enjoy VENOM!

 THE WAIT IS OVER

 

I'm using it now on Windows 7, I must say it is the prettiest thing I've ever seen. Work flowlessly with all my application, even those programs I once hated now look awesome. This thing is unbelievable. I treat it rough and can't find any complain. It's like using the default window, but better looking.

I want to congratulate vStyler on a superb job well executed. This is magically wonderful

Things like this makes us all feel special.

 

I guess i'll say THANK YOU for your gift.

 

Thank you on behalf of the whole community

For what it's worth, I formatted my hard drive, reinstalled windows 7, and reinstalled windowblinds and I still have the same problem. I've tried updating drivers. It works fine on Vista (I'm dual booting). Oh by the way, it turns out that the window frame is messed up on every application I use, it's only normal in windows explorer frames. I think I just have bad luck.

In Vista it does, yes, Vista doesn't support coloration of the left navigation pane. in Vista, I hide that pane.

The Screen shot is Venom 7, which does support it.

 

I think I just have bad luck.

If only one more person was seeing this I might be able to form some kind of solution for you g3mpi3....

post your system info here and I will send Neil the blind to check out. We'll get to the bottom of your particular situation yet

 

...no really

Second time ive typed this due to forums going boom...

Nope, if one is changed, so does the other, just another limitation of Win 7 partucularly with dark skins as it forces a white background in some areas.

Photoshop has always been a mess, that one is their fault.

 

Is it possible to make the Winflag a bit bigger ?? (I'm using Win7)

 

I'll see what I can do about making you a larger Orb for 7 and post it here, check back.

 

Harley, awesome stuff, thanks buddy.

 

Now, where are everyone elses skins? Natas, WG, anyone else? ..and I think Jim is waiting a bit till site issues are cleared up.
