RP9 Themes megathread!

Recommended Posts

Hello there fellow RP9'ers.

Since there is a lot of discussion going on in the RP9 development topic, most themes posted there will drown in the high amount of posts. Therefore I found it neccessary to create a thread devoted to the Uberskin themes.

Just post your theme, preferrably with a screenshot, and I'll add it to the OP.

Svenne's Themes

Whistler 98

This was the first RP9 theme I made, and also the first one to be released to the public. It's greatly inspired by Windows Whistler's (early XP beta) default theme, and comes in three variants: Default, Black and Luna.

Mobility

My second RP9 theme, based off a cellphone theme I made, which in turn was based upon the black Windows Mobile theme.

OS9X

My latest (and dare I say, greatest) RP9. It's heavily inspired by Mac OSX's default theme. This was requested some time ago in the RP9 topic by some guy who I can't remember. Sorry about the long wait, but here it is!

2K6

A theme heavily inspired by the design trends of Windows XP themes back in 2006; candy black title bars, shiny buttons and start buttons with text on them. I made this because I got fed up by all this nonsensical minimalism.

Vista Sephia

A simple, yet nice edit of RP9's Vista theme (which is actually Longhorn, but who cares?).

Hello

since most themes available for uberskin are either black, blue or something inbetween I decided to convert the Guistyle themepack wich comes with 6 colorsettings. don`t worry: Black and blue are included aswell :)

the skin itself is very sneak and has a good visibility

here is a screenshot of the trilian port

the uberskin port was done by me, I had to change some images to beware visibility.

I hope you like it

edit: Updatet to V3

Hi, CharlesF

many thanks or your suggestion, I completely agree with the boxes/radiobutton, and changed it.

I was pretty sure, that I tested the theme alot before submitting, nevertheless I found an other bug with the Flashbuttons, they didn`t work (imagesize was wrong)

Finaly i changed the Textcolor of the inactive window-caption. it`s now darker with a lit shadow below.

I edit the upper post and update the link to V2

again thanks for your nice words

Hi kallon,

thanks for the quick reply. :)

There is something else: I don't understand why you need to set a value of

TransCorn=5, in the [Global] section.

This setting is used to get round corners (transparent actually)

as detailed in the UberSkin documentation, but yours are all square!

If you set the value to 0 or delete the line, the appearance is exactly the same.

As I had explained in post#534 of RP9 's main thread,

transparent corners are giving for me (at least) a display glitch, that's why I beware of them. :lol:

Charles.

EDIT: nice changes kallon!

But IMO plain black is too dark regarding the general theme style.

I have changed it to the dark gray of the frame:

hi, CharlesF

thankyou for your comments.

I assume you have a TFT-Screen wich gives a better insight on dark colors.

in this case, what do you think about the round radiobuttons- aren`t they too dark?

I wasn`t aware of the uberskin documentation. now many things get clear to me and I`m overlooking the whole skin.ini file right now.

Yes.

Anything can be discussed, but the radiobuttons are not in plain black but dark green

(that is darker than the gray, but lighter than black :D ).

You're welcome :) .

Charles.

EDIT: Some buttons are lacking the 'Disabled' shape.

For instance, for a window that cannot be maximized, to get a hole instead:

Hi Charles,

I noticed that, too. It`s the original Guistyle behavior. but looks ugly in Win98. I changed it now like the XP-theme and made a half transparent circle.

I put the original progresschunk.BMPs back, thanks to the UberDoc they have a border now (margin-comand)

finaly fixed transparentCorners to zero.

there is still a bug left:the framebuttons have a lightened box around them

shot4.bmp

I don`t have a clue why :unsure: I checked everything

- otherwise it looks nice for now. thanks to all your comments, charles. :)

I edited the upper post`s link to GuistyleV3

Could it be something to do with 24 - instead of 32 - bpp pics? :huh:

That aside, it is very successful! :wub:

This theme is based on the "vista revolution"-theme wich was included with uberskin. i made many color variations of existing themes but this one looks (IMHO) very nice. so i think i should share. it comes with a Red-touch and a Blue-purplish-touch - Theme
