A WB skin by TheGreenReaper and AJCrowley. Original concept by Michael K Ter Louw, additional graphics by Ian Black, used with permission. Designed above all to be a usable skin, Blackcomb uses the UIS1 format for top performance and compatability (UIS2 backup included).
Fully supports user colourisation and XP features - click the squares to reveal rollup and ontop. Includes "Blackcomb Dark" subskin, start panel mouseover, flashing XP taskbar alert, treeview buttons and radio/checkbox mouseover. WB 3.2 or later recommended on XP for large panel support, 4.x for all features.
Run iefix.reg in Blackcomb directory if white text appears in IE. Comments and suggestions welcome!
btw, know of any good utillity to adjust the screen brightness and contrast? I made my new skin on my old computer back in norway (normal 17", but on my 17" flatscreen on my new comuter here in england it's suddenly a bit dull. the colors aren't as clear I they where on my other monotor. (perhaps it was my old monitor that was missadjusted...)
One question to the author, or anyone who may know... For apps like MSN, where, when minimized, the task flashes to signal an incoming message, how do I keep that effect? Is there a setting I need to enable?
Any help would be appreciated.
Again... Loving it! So does everyone who sees it... hehehe!
i love girls
The best things about this theme is 1) It's very clean. 2) It works well with all applications. 3) It doesn't waste space (i.e. thick, crazy window borders, etc.). 4) You can use it for a long time and not get sick of it. 5) It's _fast_.
There are not very many themes out there that can say that. Hell, there aren't that many that can claim three out of the five. Add to this that the theme is professional quality. It looks like something M$ might even have included in Plus!.
If you have one Blackcomb theme installed, this should be it. If Blackcomb is not your thing, that's ok Just don't put this into the same category you would another Luna-like as this one clearly stands out from it's peers.
it looks good and all but everyone makes them. there are like 7 available between blackcombs and longhorns.
