So, if you need any help with patching 16bits control pannel files or anything, just ask.

By the way, your project looks great. Especially the modified bitmaps
Keep up the good work. :yes:

Good news!!! I've managed to patch shell32.dll to support 32 bit icons to some icons that imageres could not do it.

Not good. Modifying shell32.dll leads to crashes with RP7 (and maybe without RP7 too) very often (Lupus suffers from this crash, for example). That's why imageres.dll was born.

I've never seen so much reshack in my life.
But remember that quality and quantity are different things. :rolleyes:

I like that you're using Lupus Classic Theme... The bitmap is very nice... but i dislike the 3rd party icons...
Even so, it looks very nice, if you are consistent with the icon pack.

I will try to make the best in 16 bit mode and of course in 32 bit mode.

Well, why not BricoPack Vista Inspirat Ultimate 2 then ?

Anyway, i still believe that both Tango and Crystal icons would be great on 98:

This has probably been answered elsewhere, but have you considered using something like XIS (XPize Installer System) for this? I mean in the sense it can do a reshack on the already existing executables and DLLs in the system to be Renovatio'd instead of requiring the extraction and replacement of (possibly) incompatible versions of the files you customize. Have you given this any thought?
