Soon to finish my Spanish adaptation of U98SESP3 :w00t:

Resources and Deputy PSD "to edit it to taste" of the image of Start Menu :thumbup

Add:

To serve these 2 options IE?

"Internet Explorer 5.5 SP2 Core Files (98lite Users Only) and Internet Explorer 6.0 SP1 Core Files (98lite Users Only)"

General users should install or can ignore them.

I have a question, is the SP2 works with clean-installed Windows 98SE without the need of SP1? I'm sorry for my English... Thanks before...

I also like the start menu banner, can you send it to me.

FYI Bitmap 161 is ONLY used by Windows 95. Remember that the same version of EXPLORER is used on both 98 and 95 with the Desktop Update installed. If 161 is changed, then if that version of Explorer is loaded in 95 then the Start Menu will say 98. :lol:

So Bitmap 161 should be a nice gray-to-black-to-gray Windows 95 banner. :angel

So... we should use the original, unmodified, bitmap for 161, right?

No, it can be modified. I'm not opposed to making it look better. :D Just pointing out that it is only useful on 95. Also, I had considered changing it earlier myself, but I haven't managed to create a banner that I think looks very good.

More Info:

In 98, if the Start Menu grows longer (taller) than the bitmap banner, then the "space" above it will be auto-filled with the same blue color as in the original bitmap to prevent having it just "cut off."

EDIT: gerislamico is right below, 98 will autofill based on the color of the top of the bitmap.

In 95, this "auto fill" color is gray, not blue. So if the banner is changed from ending (at the top) with gray, then there will be a line wherever the banner ends and it will continue in gray to the top of the menu.

So, the 98 banner must end at the top in the same blue color as the original, and the 95 banner must end at the top in the same gray color unless someone knows what to edit to change the autofill colors. :unsure:

EDIT:

Struck out incorrect information. The problem seems to only affect Windows 95. There must be some sort of "version check" in EXPLORER that causes Bitmap 161 to be used on 95, and Bitmap 161 is not extended based on the bitmap color. :angrym:

Correctly 161 Bitmap it not modify for Win98/SE.

To look good in VGA Classic, edit it with the classic color palette 16 colors for 4 bits, Photoshop conducted the rest

The top of the bitmap should be the first pixel to the left the reference color. Windows will repeat along the "up" Menu.

It looks nice but the text in the new image is too big. Can you make them smaller?

Would it be too much trouble to add Second Edition to the images, and fix the start menu bmp.

USB 2.0 NOTICE - Unplug all USB devices. Install main updates.

It means that I need install all components of SP3 except USB component?

No what it means is that USB install as a part of main updates.

After installation of main updates follow the instructions in the USB 2.0 notice.
