    Hey guys,

    I've been working on a Luna theme that matches the MMX Mercury set, with Liquidius elements (and OSXP too, I believe) ... Below is a 1280x1024 screenshot - what do you guys think?

    i just love it as i said before....the only thing i will change is the start button......and.....no just that i think the start button. i just download stylebuilder, if i create a theme can i keep it after the shareware expire???? I use to have style xp but i remove it and hack the uxtheme :D

    mavis Guest

    yes, any themes you create will work even after the demo expires, and/or you uninstall StyleBuilder. All you need is the uxtheme :)

    fun with hyperlink!

    Hey guys!

    Thanks for the feedback, I appreciate it! As for the icons (which everybody has been asking about, lol) they are part of a set called MMX Mercury, and they will be available for download both for Mac and PC, on April 17. There are supposed to be 358 icons in the complete set! Anyway, the artist (Mikkel Maddsen) has indicated that he, and he alone, will host the icons - so, nobody else is authorized to distribute them.

    Any other artist and people might be more cavalier about sharing the icons, but this guy has obviously put A LOT of work into the set, so everybody is trying to be respectful of his wishes. This is actually his second set, his website might still have the other ones up...?

    If you want to pick up the MMX icons that are already available, just go to Icon Factory's Pixelpalooza page and download them... You will need to convert them yourself, but I wrote a tutorial about that here...

    :)

    hey mavis i found (i think) a bug of your theme. when i go to my sound icon in the taskbar, and sound properties are up when i look for the place to checkmark the (for example) mute of mic, wave,etc it doesnt show. i check other places that have check mark things and they dont show up. Hope this help........

    sorry for the english but is not my main language :D

    hopefully i made myself clear:p

    thanks zman!!

    Well, I just finished working on the theme for the night, I fixed some edging on the restore/close/maximize, etc buttons, looks smoother now when deselected/inactive ... Plus, the .zip now includes the babe wallpaper :)

    Get RC3 here!!

    last one! :)

    Hey guys!

    Well, I think I'm done with the theme for a while, but I've updated it one more time before I go...


    I've added two new color schemes, and included my wallpaper in three different flavors to match each scheme... You can grab the final version here!! Below are screenshots, enjoy!

    one more change :)

    I've redone the start button, I think it looks MUCH better now - below is a gif of the mouseover animation. What do you guys think?
