Hey all!

First I just have to say that you guys are awesome :thumbup and thanks to you, my windows 98SE machine looks good as/better than Vista.

Second of all I want to say that I've made a theme for LameSkin based off of Microsoft's Zune theme (downloadable for Windows XP SP2).

Here's the wallpaper I used (right click on the picture to save it):

And Here's a screenshot of the whole theme in action:

th.31d9d63315.jpg

(Sorry for the pitiful quality of the theme preview image. The real thing looks much nicer and much less patchy.)

Hope this theme can be of some use to people! Installation instructions and cursors are included in the .rar file attached to this post! Enjoy!

Zune_Theme.rar

Can a mod fix this preview or the author

Fix what? My 'Zune' skin? Or were you talking to someone else? I'm not aware of bugs with 'Zune'...

(By the way, I have packaged the Zune theme in a .zip for those without WinRAR)

And now proper Zune theme:

ZuneXP.zip

Took me about 2 mins to port it.

It'll be & improved in next RP.

Also, this skin shows easy but cool trick you can use: figure where it takes start button.

When you figure this out, you know how to create lightweight skins with sub-styles.

Nice theme... and the start button: Bitmap=..\AeroBlue\VISTA48_STARTBUTTON_BMP.bmp. The start button it's from AeroBlue theme.

Wow, that's way better than mine (I had to make mine from screenshots :P ) I tried to just port it, but it wouldn't let me install it on Windows 98SE. I'm working on other skins too, they should be getting up here in just a few days.

Hy...i have a question: i installed the lameskins from rev pack7 alone without the rev pack and they doesn't work. Why? The caption buttons are the same, the taskbar is the same... Please help!

You did not install RP at all? RP includes the LameSkin engine required to use LameSkins. Try Googling to see if you can find a standalone engine. Otherwise, you may have to just install RP or ask Tihiy for more info.

I have a theme that I'm currently working on called 'Aero Glow', and is designed to fit right in with the Windows Vista Ultimate 'strands' wallpaper. However, I'm not so good at creating registry files for LameSkin. I know Max_04 made a little 'tutorial' of how to do this, but while I can make the theme show up, I have to set the colors manually each time I transport it to another computer (simply because the colors are in the registry on my PC, but not the .reg file). Any help on creating .reg files with preset colors?

Quite simple really luke :)

1) Goto Start -> Run -> type 'regedit' -> ok

2) Navigate to 'HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Appearance\Schemes'

3) Goto File -> 'Export Registry File' -> Save under the name you choose

*4) Open up this registry file in notepad to strip out everything but your scheme.

* = Example Result Shown below:

In my tutorial I've explained exactly this. :huh:
