That looks awesome!! Cool

We really need a glossy skin like this one .. Although the grass background could be removed or changed by the user Big Grin

Looks really amazing.. If you could provide the graphics, perhaps someone could code it in .xmls ..

Btw: Viele Grüße aus München Wink

I just want to add yes its nice but you really need to make sure that none of the images are taken directly from vista itself or Microsoft will come down hard on you

Other than that its nice and if you need tech support (ie I have no time to code it but are willing to help you figure out stuff ) just come see me int he official irc channel or send me a PM

Looking at it it also seems to have a lot of wasted space around the edges i would suggest making that grey border alot smaller since the grass part also has a border in it

they grey border won't be that wide on the skin... and the border in the gras part will probably be smaller as well... we'll take a look at it as soon as we start coding it...

i just need to get some great royalte free background images that are in the vista style... the icons are remakes, not straight rips from the vista os Nod

Alright, time for an update.

First off the skin now has a name. It's called Slate.

This skin is being brought to you by Team af.
Team af members are

Abe87 - xml coder

fluidman - graphics & design

This skin has only been in the works for about 2 1/2 weeks. In this time we have made a lot of progress. We still have a long way to go before it could be considered a complete skin. Is that even possible a complete skin?

There are a few things that we have tried to do with this skin. We have tried to use as much of the available screen as possible for content. We have also added a lot of skin settings. Right now we have 18 skin settings. And this doesn't include the bookmarks.

I guess you want to see some screenshots. Well here you go!

Home

Image

Settings

Image

Bookmarks

Image

Movies

Image

Music

Image


This is just a taste of what is to come with this skin. We have added some different view types that I think some of you will find useful.

We are looking to have a beta ready in about a week. Please don't hold us to an exact date. Because this is just a hobby to us and we might have more pressing real life matters that could slow down progress.

fluidman should be along at any time with another update.

Very Nice and clean,

If you did all the icons in settings, that is very impressive. Is the My Videos selected, is that why it's blue?

Looking forward to this.

If you mean the My Videos section in the bookmarks then yes it is selected. It is actually grey.

No I meant the SS of settings, where My Videos folder looks blue.

Sorry. Yes that is the case. The settings icons change to that blue when they are focused.
