Blackcomb by greenreaper Blackcomb by greenreaper
**Latest additions - tab page backgrounds and new tabs for Dark subskin, menu ticks/icons, more visible alert button, numerous tweaks. Has full support for WB 4.0 with XP shellstyle additions (left panel of explorer, control panel and logoff/shutdown windows).

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!

Hehe, thanks! I must admit I didn't make it alone - I was mainly responsible for the technical side of porting it from Michael K Ter Louw's original msstyle, with AJCrowley doing the the butterfly (which was a b*** trying to get to work - it broke WB at one point ;-)). Was a lot of fun, though. *grin*

Alas, I'm in my last year of my degree, and I don't have much time for skinning. There may be an update to change the truly bad My music/pictures/movies etc images, but only because another person has kindly donated some. I'm just not a sufficiently good artist to want to do things like toolbar icons or folder animations by myself in limited time. :-\

Icons have allways been something I've never gotten the hang over. Trying to figure out an icontheme for my new skin. Think I won't bother doinf a new icon set, but I'll try to do some toolbaricons to fit the theme. animations are even worse.

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...)

I don't, offhand - if I needed to do that I'd probably use the features in my driver. If you're talking about a WindowBlinds skin, note that the registered version has features to boost gamma and otherwise change the colour (the middle button on the Appearance tab in Display properties). You can also change stuff in SkinStudio.
