Phrizzle for WB5 -W.I.P.- by masterschwag Phrizzle for WB5 -W.I.P.- by masterschwag
WORK IN PROGRESS - This is the beginning (mockup) of what I hope to be a great theme for WindowBlinds 5! It's designed to utilize all the latest features of WindowBlinds 5! My inspiration is obviously Vista, but this isnt another Vista "clone" theme! I hope to release it before the end of the year, but my time for working on it is VERY limited! I still have quite a few images to make, and then of course put it all together with skin studio! If you have any suggestions or comments, I would appreciate it!
---------------------------------------------------------
UPDATED PROGRESS: First off, I apologize for taking so long to finish this project! I have more knowledge in designing, than in assembling themes. I was also on vacation for a month, and didnt have access to any files, or software to make the theme while I was away. The project is still in the works, but someone else has joined forces to help finish this a little faster! Hopefully he will have more luck with putting the images together than I did!

This concept looks awesome. I would love to play with it and the new settings in the upcoming version (6) of WindowBlinds.

Please release soon!

so far so good. Though imo the window min/max/close controls look a bit incongruous compared to the rest of the window. Definately looking forward to seeing a final version.

Dont worry my friend, those are just there for aesthetics. The final buttons will resemble the start button style!

There were many who started making good looking themesl; however never probably got the chance to complete. So, if you have some beta release, please share it.

I agree! Its easy to make a mockup, and much harder to actually put it together into a working theme... I am planning on the release being 100% bug free, so there probably wont be a beta.. I am obsessive about bugs, so I wont release some half done buggy theme for people to complain about :D

It looks fabulous, just the right amount of transparency.

Only one request, can you please please PLEASE make a substyle with the logoff buttons in the right place for those who don't want to modify their shell to support that start menu search bar. This one stupid thing makes most Vista skins unusable for me.

If not, good work either way. It's very pretty.

Without the patch that removes the words (logoff/turn off) the buttons will be in the proper place (with words to the right)... With the patch, they appear closer together. I am not planning on putting a fake search bar on the start menu. It will automatically appear when its ported to Vista Windowblinds 5.5.

How do you guys do the skinshots? Everytime I try to make one with skinstudio it is a really sh*tty Image size wize and just plain overall no matter what I do. Am I doing something wrong or so you guys do it some other way?

I personally make everything in Photoshop look like a working theme, and save it as a .JPG... After I finish the theme in Photoshop, I will disect it, and import all the images into skin studio...

Nice! What would be really cool is if the Close, Restore, Minimize buttons were in the same style as the start button, that glassy sorta indented type look. But other then that this is awesome!
