Codename Longhorn by Xyrax Codename Longhorn by Xyrax
Hi everyone that Liked this theme.
I have made some updates and new preview., in case that you didn't notice.
Wallpaper from screen is "valvo" by :iconmanicho:
[link]

So the changes that are done:
-Solid progress bars :yum:
-New taskbars buttons
-Improved Buttons
-More rounded captions
-Some other small things that I changed...
-Now files are organized differently. There are still separate folders for each start button version, but now compact and normal version are one, I added compact version for 48px icons. If you cant find compact version try looking under font size dropdown box. Overall packed file is now only 1,5mb ( unpacked 16,2 MB).

If you find some bugs please note me, I will try to correct everything I can.

Fantastic! Just found this after trying Lebis - I am very impressed indeed. This is one of the best VS I have seen to date. Reminds me of work along the lines of WinGnomeXP's stuff (in a Longhorn sort of way) - but very original. I am using the CDL Slate Orb version, but I added the shellstyle from Lamina XT Final for my personal use only, and it is amazing. It looks like it was made with the VS, however, I have no permission to distribute, so I won't. This is some fine work here my friend - many thanks for sprucing up the desktop and sharing this with everyone - Cheers!

Hi again,

I am using your VS since more than a week now. I find it really excellent. Hope than you'll add some more substyles with different color schemes.

Thanks in advance.

Nice, it's look good, but the start buttons look somewhat strange in Slate. That black around it is the problem Imo.
whatever, it look really nice in Vista.

Like very much the Slate variation. In the Blue State Orb, theword "Start" still appears on the left of the orb (Large Fonts).

Personnally, the Start buttons doesn't matter that much. I'd rather prefer more choices of colors. For example, the green you use for the mouseover on the scrollbar in the Blue State looks very nice. Can you create a Green Slate out of this?

Xyrax Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2008
don't use large fonts, more colors maybe in future.. try to count how many files it will be with everything versions...

Did you mean too many msstyle files? Then opt for one start button instead of 4 and the number will be reduced by 4.

ANd still there are slate/normal colors and normal/compact menu which still will x4 the number of msstyle files. May be you can stuff these substyles into a single msstyle file.

And if it is still too much, just opt for one style of menu (either all normal start menu or all compact). Personnally I will accomodate. Colors and look are far more important to me. As long as they are original and look different than the usual Vista, Royale, Luna.

"Then opt for one start button instead of 4 and the number will be reduced by 4." But the file size will be X4.

Stradivarius Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2008
Why would the size = x4? Currently there is one file for each start button (Longhorn, Flag, Orb, XP). If you keep only one let's say Flag. Then the 3 others are physically deleted. 4 files - 3 files = 1 file. That is what I meant by reduce the size by 4.

If you do that, then if someone wants the Longhorn button which is no longer supplied, then it is too bad for him/her. There should be a limit somewhere, you cannot please the entire world.
