First, let me say, I wish you would have contacted me, with these issues, so I could have explained or corrected the issues.
Instead, these issues go untreated and may or may not be affecting other people. Also, I'm being blamed repeatedly of stealing someone else's work. Which is totally unfounded. Never have! Never will!
But this is 2009. It's easier to drag someone's name through the mud, instead of contacting the author.
I test all my skins on (4) different machines. (2) with XP and (2) with Vista, for no less than (1) month, to make sure the skin looks right and is working properly. Out of all my skins, I've had a really good track record of having very few, if not, no mistakes. I take 100% pride in my work. Also, all images in the Light Mark forler are all 100% my own work.
Now, I'll explain each of these issues starting at the top-left and work my way around.
Logo showing under menubar text: Out of all the years I've used Vista and looked at other people machines, I have never seen those extra icons, to the left. There is only a question mark, on my machine, and with all that extra space, I was trying to go with something unique. Since now, I see, that there are elements there (on some peoples machines), I'll rethink about putting anything there in the future.
None of the Vista part colors are skinned: This is a new one on me and would like to see some screenshots of what you mean.
All of the Vista and XP colors, have been changed to match the skin.
Title Bar Button Glow: Again, I've tested this skin on (4) different machine and haven't seen this issue. Have you tried refreshing the skin or rebooted, to see if it will fix it? Does it happen on all windows or just that one? Does it happen on XP, Vista or both?
Vista Backgrounds not being removed: There are no Gradients or background images used in the Light Mark folder. I'm guessing you were using the Aero Midnight skin before switching to my skin. (Since those are the ones showing up). If so, it's probably still using elements from the previous skin. To fix this, open the WB Config window, click Settings, Advanced User Settings, and uncheck the box that reads "I want skins to be able to apply textures to the back of explorer windows". Then click apply. The shell style images will now show up (in XP only). This one, is not my doing but WB itself.
Progress Chunks and Progress Bars: Again, these are elements that may have been used from the previous skin, when switching from one skin to another. I only skinned (1) horizontal and (1) Vertical progress bar, so it may have taken the elements, from the previous skin, to fill the void, even though I use (1) progress bar for all (4) chunks. Nothing was taken from anyone's skin. This is something I will make a note of for future skins.
The Try Again Button (on the left): This is something I've never come across. I may or may not have left out a certain button, that this window uses. Not sure. I have seen, from time to time, when a button is not used, when I know for a fact I've skinned it. This may be one of those times.
See, simple explinations
If anyone ever has any problems or issues, concerning one of my skins, please feel free to contact me and I will do my best to resolve any issues. Making them public, doesn't solve the problem, it only delays the simple answers or fixes.
I'll be waiting to hear from you.
P.S. I'm taking this rather well, aren't I?
Also, I should point out, that if there are this many issue, why has no one, except this person, said anything. The MODS would have picked most of these issues up when testing.
