Mac OS X Leopard msstyle for XP SP2 - trying to reach the perfect one

Recommended Posts

This is the final version of my Mac OS X Leopard Msstyle

It has 3 versions:

Transparent Space taskbar

Flat taskbar

Plastic Unified toolbar

I tried to make the scrollbarbuttons to be more original when they are clicked, and the systray icons when clicked they behave like in OS X.

Hope you like it, enjoy ;)

I like it, alot. Not that I know anything about Mac.

One thing that is annoying:in firefox (Gecko/2008012904 Minefield/3.0b3pre) the scrollbars are too wide (I am using the default theme), but this could be firefox's fault.

One request (2in1 actually):start menu compact mode and without the spotlight icon.

Keep up the good work.

Hi,

I love what you did with the style, but there's 2 bugs that I found. :)

1. the 3 window buttons (green, red, yellow) are in the wrong order .. you have them as green, yellow, red .. but they should be yellow (minimize), green (maximize), red (close) Right now the green button functions as minimize but has a + over it and yellow functions as maximize but has - over it.

2. In the start menu the LOG OFF and TURN OFF COMPUTER don't have any icons next to them

Here's a screen shot to illustrate the 2 points ..

If you would be able to adjust these 2 points I think the style would be almost perfect :)

P.S. A Compact version would be nice too ..

Thanks.

It's better than the one I'm currently using, but the scrollbar should be different:

Hi there,

Can I ask which Styler are you using? and what Leopard msstyle are you using that has the green/yellow/red buttons on the left side?

Thanks :)

1. I left the caption buttons that way because I wanted to keep the look and the order of buttons like in OS X, and btw everybody knows the function of the buttons, even if there's a + on the minimize button and a - for maximize.

2. There are no icons next to the logoff and shutdown buttons because I didn't put any icon there. and if you use Lucida Grande font then the logoff has to be in the white side of the start menu, and the shutdown on the grayer part.

And what do you mean when you say Compact version? How should it look like?

Hey csongi,

1. Gotcha, no problem. It's just that usually yellow caption button means minimize on all Mac skins I've seen and green button means maximize... no big deal :)

2. Although it would be nice to have nice icons there, not the end of the world. At least I know it's not a bug.

When I say Compact I mean that in the Start menu where you have the right side icons (e.g. My Computer, My Network Places, Control Panel, etc..) I've seen plenty MSSTYLES that have 2 skins. One like yours and one that only has the icons and no text next to them. Again, sorry if I'm being a pain but just a suggestion since I've seen it around a lot and is a neat feature.

Thanks
