Revolutions Pack 9.7

777 posts in this topic

Welcome Moonlights, :)

if you don't see this option during setup, I'm afraid you won't be able to change language. :}

It seems that RP doesn't give choice but default OS language.

Maybe (but I don't have tried this, so beware!),

you could tweak the 'RPConfig.lng' file in %Windir%\SYSTEM

by changing the line [1036] in [1033], if your default OS language is english.

If not, it should be easier, by giving to the line [1036], the number of your default OS language and erasing this original line from the file.

FWIW.

Charles.

Hi!

If someone from Spain or Latin América is interested, this is a spanish "start button" for "Windows XP Theme".

bluestartbuttonbmp.png

To replace the default "Start" english button, follow this steps:

1. If you are using the standard XP Theme with english start button, just change to another theme for some minutes.

2. Rename the default english button, usually located at "C:\WINDOWS\Resources\Themes\Windows XP" from "BLUE_STARTBUTTON_BMP.bmp" to something else, like "BLUE_STARTBUTTON_BMP_ENG.bmp"

3. Download this bitmap file containing the spanish button and place it in the "...Resources\Themes\Windows XP" directory.

BLUE_STARTBUTTON_BMP.bmp

4. From RPConfig, go back to "Windows XP Theme".

Now the "Start" button is in spanish: it says "Inicio".

Marcelo.

Which OS version you've installed it on (98 Gold/98SE/ME)? Is it a true install or in a virtual machine?

Have you installed the required updates first, as mentioned in post #2 of this thread?

Are there any other system enhancements installed (unofficial SP3/AutoPatcher/98SE2ME/etc)?

Is there any application running that could mess with that taskbar area (TClock, for example)?

Hey drugwash,

I have windows me

No enhancements at all,

I've installed the updates before I installed RP9,

I have no programs messing around with the task bar area.I checked.

It's still weird,because isn't windows ME like windows 98 with just a few more programs?

Also,I'm running on a real computer.Its a laptop.Heres the specs:

Intel Celeron Processor

64MB of RAM

360Mhz

Hp Pavilion N5210

Maybe you're missing the bitmap pertaining to the Systray area, in the skin package - have you tried a different skin? Or open in Notepad the skin.ini corresponding to the current skin and check if the file mentioned by the Bitmap value in the TaskBarTray section exists in the current folder; it may be missing or its name could be wrong in the ini. You may fix the name or borrow the file from another skin (or build it yourself in an image editor - 101x28px, 24bpp bitmap in Royale/Windows XP/ZuneXP themes).

As for KernelEx and Revolutions Pack, I've been running both on my main 98SE machine for years, so yeah, they do get along fine.

Hmm, it's weird. The picture is there, and everything is right. I noticed now that when the computer starts, the task at isn't loaded yet and the clock area is fine, just without the clock writing and stuff. But when the taskbar loads, the clock area becomes white, and the text loads. It's as if windows ME unloads it or something. It happens all the time, with other themes as well.

I also was running them together for years with mostly no problems and no graphical glitches.

Briansurvivedwindowsme, have you installed all the updates, required by Revolutions Pack? Could they be overwritten by some other installation? As I recall, some graphical glitches could occur if some required dlls (or exes) were not updated or updated to other versions.

Sorry Briansurvivedwindowsme, but working fine here:

post-200646-0-74349000-1394141737_thumb.

I have compare my 'Longhorn 4008' folder with the 'XstyleThemePack_XTP_.exe' one,

and they are strictly identical.

Must be some error in your copy. Try to reinstall this folder after unzipping the exe.

HTH :angel

I experienced same problem in WinME myself, but I did not look what causes it and how to get rid of it. No problem in 98SE.

So Briansurvivedwindowsme, you could try to run RPCONFIG.EXE (and maybe the dll embedded in the program) with KernelEx in Windows 98SE compatibility mode?

Briansurvivedwindowsme, there is several files running the program: UBERHACK.EXE, uberskin.dll, SHL8.DLL, RP8.dll

You will find them in %WINDIR%\SYSTEM

You should try to play with them and KernelEx, and see after reapplying the skin if it solves your glitch.

AFAIK, RPConfig.exe is no more than the GUI

I think I found the fix to the white clock problem - you need to make PChealth.EXE not run prior to installing RP9 and applying skins and stuff. The service will undo the changes in system files done by RP and that causes the problem. It'll likely make the system more responsive too as there's one less thing that is constantly monitoring everything.

It seems on WinME the "superbar" version of a skin will not have two rows of systray icons as on 98SE... but I can live with that, it just looks less good.

EDIT: Seems only the Watercolor Emico is affected, that means I'll only have to adjust the skin's ini file ! I'll provide a "fix" when I achieve that ^^

EDIT2: TaskBarSize=39 will give me 2 rows of icons. I am not able to get 2 rows in other ways so I'll have to adjust the other taskbar related values so all looks uniform and naiss.

I have a bug with the 'Windows 7' theme

With any of the 2 Taskbar sizes (normal or superbar), the taskbar size doubles after a while,

and the buttons will come under the Quicklaunch bar.

See screenshot: post-200646-0-92720800-1397090287.png

I have tried several tricks and settings, but I was not able to fix it.

Could someone help me?

Thx in advance.

Charles.
