XPize 3.1

19 posts in this topic

XPize is a resources transformation pack for Windows. It replaces most of the non-XP icons, avis and bmps that Microsoft has always overlooked. The installer simply automates the process of replacing resources in critical system files, making your XP's look better. XPize is compatible with Windows XP, 2003 and MCE Editions. XPize also comes with an Updater, which you can use after visiting Windows Update

Version 3 ships with an optional Royale oriented look.

What's new in 3.1:

Options:

- Removed I386 Patching

- Removed Royale shutdown dialog

- Added msgina.dll as optional: this includes the Royale shutdown dialog

- Updated uxtheme.dll patcher

Files:

- Added bmp 134 in msgina.dll

- Added bmp 135 in msgina.dll

New WinRAR has theme support, so why including it with XPize? My XP theme is listed on Rarlab site. Get it! :)

Thanks for the new version! :thumbup

But I am really sad for 3.1's disability to patch i386 folder!

I think I will have to do it manually! :no:

No, use uAE 1.1 for that. I want normal XPize to be for the general public, and uAE for advanced. That's why I made that switch.

Too true! Downloaded Xpize uAE1.1 and have successfully patched the i386 folder.

Now it is a new run with Ryan's 1.2.1 pack + xpize 3.1 + nlite 0.99.9 = Better windows ! :w00t:

Hey,

I love this pack thanx you for making it :) what I'd like to add is well I'll let the picture speak for it'self (the about bout is nice VERY nice) but if you look at the pic the monitors look out of place (the one with the theme on it really looks out of place) could something be done about it ?? Oh plus I did a Fresh install of 3.1 and the logon/logoff is in the "old Luna" style. While I'm at it when windows is shutting down you dont have a status (windoers is saving your settings/windows is shutting down ext) Could something be done about this (I like to know what windows is doing)

@Bytestar: thanks, I will check it

@Romey: first of all thanks for the comments. About the monitor..I will try to replace that. About the logon, you're saying that the XPize logon didn't work for you? anyone had this issue also with 3.1?

Perhaps he thought of the royale shutdown dialog. After I installed 3.1, I had another shutdown dialog than in 3.0 I think. But it is not the original Win XP one.

Where can I get this update? I looked on the offical site.

I liked the royale shutdown screen (not welcome screen). Is there any way to get it back?

There have been problems with the website server and the site is not updated. Go to the first post and you will see the DeviantART download. The shutdown screen is only available in XPize 3 (3.0 or 3.1), not in uAE.

Ok Here is a fresh install of Windows XP Home w/sp2 slipstreamed. Now here's my problem the logoff box looks the same :|. Oh I love the welcome screen but when you shut down can I please have the "windows is shutting down/saving your settings ..and all that ?? Just like when you log in with this nice welcome screen it says Loading your personal sittings in gray I'm in love with this pack hehe. Thanx you again for makeing it and takeing the time to read this & I hope that the prompts are put back in (I like to know what windows is doing ...plus I'm visually impaires so it helps to know what windows is doing).
