CoverSutra visual style for Windows XP:

The style is slightly modified so I hope that you all will like it! ;)

Latest update: I was finished technically my work on shell style now, also I was added 4 variations with coversutra logo!

I presume that all those people which simply from some reason don’t like to use styles with Apple logo, will be pleased now!

Btw... If you notice anything unusual please report here. Thanks… ;)

CONTENTS:

CoverSutra visual style:
(support 6 different color variations + 4 with new logo)
CoverSutra skin for TT (True Transparency)

I don't know about that, but if you using some bright theme, you shouldn't worry! Beside, I can't remember because I'm not using XP anymore, but I think that background you can change from theme section somewhere in control panel.

Hey vladimir,
Please response to this message.
I already downloaded your theme. It was really great and cool. The texture and graphic is very nice.

BUT!
My Start > All programs list has been disorder. "All programs" overing my 1024 x 768 specs. Can u explain why this happen and solve this problem fast as possible. I will redownload this theme later.

Thanks, NightWolf

I didn't test style on low resolutions. So, maybe there is a problem with start menu in that situation but I can't fix that now since I'm not using windows anymore. But if I remember correct, you have option menu from where you can make icons smaller in start menu, so I suggest you to do that. Perhaps that will solve your problem...

Best ;)

hi vladimir. i installed your theme for xp. i got a question. in Display Properties, i set 'selected items' to the color red. say i got 2 windows, active and inactive. and say i select the active window where items in the active window are highlighted in red. but when i select the inactive window, the color of the highlighted items in the active window (now turned inactive) turn to a different color. how can i keep the color of highlighted items from changing when i select different windows?

You can't! When you change color scheme you change it for all windows. Temporary you can see previous color on windows which are inactive, but when you activate them windows will change color immediately. That change is permanent! So, this means, that you can’t keep colors from previous scheme on some windows or other elements. Things doesn’t work that way… sorry! :juggle:

I am afraid that's not going to happen, mostly because I'm not using windows anymore... So, I'm pretty much sure that I'm done with skinning...

Other than that, I can only add that you won't find dark theme for windows that are working properly. Fonts problem that you mentioned is the first thing but there are other similar problems, in certain programs, which are using they own skins or parts... In short, if you like dark themes and if you want to use them, then be ready to make certain sacrifices...

You really don't need 5 times to set completely the same comment here. What's wrong with you? As for your problem, you should sometimes read what is written here on the wall but also in the "read me" file in the pack. Then you will have your answer... Phuu...:smoking:

Well I can't remember that I was posted somewhere picture of my winamp, because I can't remember that I was use any... But you should know one thing and that is the fact that the windows style doesn't have anything with winamp style. Those are two separate things, ok?

your theme is awesome!!! however I'm also having problems with my toolbar(probably with the styler). I did see your comment for herobasha but I can't understand this line "then open up menu by clicking near the caption buttons and enable it! Disable all other stuff from the list... and that's it!". I hope you'll reply soon..thanks!

Which part you didn't understand? I think that is more than obvious what you need to do! Just click near the close,min,max (caption) buttons and enable styler from menu (disable everything else)!!! It's more than simple manual operation, heh... ;)

Hi, vladimir.. I finally managed to get your theme working. But, the background color in Word is now grey and as a result, I cant print in white. I want to open Word and be able to print with white background without manually setting the color of the background and font everytime I open a Word doc. Is there a way to change the background color and color font without having to do so manually?

I'm not sure... You need to check all settings there. Also check Google. See what other people saying for such issues... But be ready to make certain small sacrifices here and there, because dark styles are not perfect... Actually there are any for which I can say that is 100% totally ok!

Hi, vladimir.. I got XP, SP3. I tried to install your CoverSutraXP theme but nothing happens. I also tried to install the SP3 UxTheme Patcher.. Again, nothing happens. What am I doing wrong? I'm new to this. I want to use your theme. So, what must I do? Please help.. If you'd like to email me, my email is: taurusxz@yahoo.com .. Thank you.

Well, if you installed SP3 UxTheme Patcher and this style also, then you only need to switch on cover sutra in windows and buttons menu which you can find inside Display Properties/Appearance tab.
