Well, they're extemely awesome to my taste!
If happens to be icon packs support for RP8, it will be the my first choice!

I think i need you (in addition to marxo) for RP8 design. :rolleyes:
But if you could release those icons as icon set (for existing program like IconPackager, or standalone as ResPatcher), it would be extremely nice!

Although I don't mind the spartan look of Win98, I'm really impressed by your project. :thumbup
Does your modification work with the localized (in my case Polish) versions of Win98SE?

Those icons are in the ICO format, right? If they are, they need to be transparent, not the pink color that LameSkin treats as transparency. If you don't have an ICO maker, I use IconEdit32 (google it, it's free). If those are Bitmaps, then Windows probably uses a different color for transparency, but which I do not know.
I would love to change the world, but they won't give me it's source code

It is a bitmap, you should save the bitmap to it's exact color depth and you should be sure that the background color is ok.

But I had the same problem with the Skins groupbox files and I never knew whats going on.

I don't have anything against you using Windows Lupus Project files in Renovatio but wouldn't recommend it because RP7.11 has that "anti-Lupus" code and renames the windows version to "IT'S NOT LUPUS" which is really dumb IMHO. Nice pack btw...

Actually they can have a dialog like that but not by installing Renovatio, ofc.

Any chance to have a Tango/Crystal open theme(s) ?

Some - maybe useful - links:
- Linux-looking Themes on Windows XP
- Belchfire.net's Themes Gallery
- DeviantArt's Windows Visual Styles


...an open source Renovatio release !

IMHO I think that this project and Windows Lupus could be unified (in the future).
After a certain period of development, between two projects could born a great group.
