I have a few bugs to report:

Icons in explorer, on mouseover, go back to their original icons. If you can, remove the fake icon images all together.

This is definately one of the nicest vista skins i've seen to date, good job.

I've d/l Blinds 5.5 and installed both v2 and v3 but i'm still not getting the aero windows - they're solid. Any suggestions? Am I supposed to combine the two skins somehow? :-P

I can't imagine that a skin that works in 5.1 wouldn't work in 5.5, that just doesn't make sense. Your 48x48 skin works perfectly, I just don't use that icon size.

If you could upload your working version to a file host, or even email it to me just so I can make sure there isn't something wrong with the file I'm getting from DA, that would be great. If you can't I understand. Let me know in a PM or something. Thanks again for your great skin!

Sorry, I can't get it working. Is there any way you can upload the updated version to a file host or something? I get the impression I'm not getting the updated file from Deviantart.

If you want, I can upload what it is that DA is sending me so you can compare it. Let me know.

Umm, it's still not working. I have missing toolbar buttons, etc. Are you sure the file is updated? What is the name of the file I should be downloading? I got -
Mimic_vista_V3_by_v_Xemnes.wba
Is that correct?

BTW, the 48x48 version you posted seems to work.

yes it should work, well it works dandy on my system, have you got ux theme installed?

:iconwraithdu:
wraithdu Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2007
Nope, just WB 5.5. It has the same missing buttons, etc. as the first version of v3 you released. I'll try and download again today when I get home.

Which Stardock site do you mean? Wincustomize.net?

:iconwraithdu:
wraithdu Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2007
Awesome! Can't wait to get home and try it.

One question, and this seems as good a place as any to ask it. Where can I get some good documentation and tutorials for using SkinStuido? I don't necessarily want to create my own skins, but be able to tweak everyone else's :) For example, I have one I use at home now, but the All Programs menu is too large for each item so my FULL start menu is HUGE. I'd like to learn to be able to slim it down if I want to. Stuff like that.

CAN'T WAIT! Its one of the select few w/out the search bar, EXACTLY how I like it, so thanks. No offense, but how come you gave ppl the option to download it when it was still full of bugs...? And then you write in the comments to NOT download it? Did you do it by accident or were you not aware of its problems? Not that big a deal...but cant wait to try the finished product, keep up the good work!

not sure what the "red buttons" mean? i presume you are referring to the close button. seems to be ok with me in ver 2 as well as the log off button. If so what is ver 3?

BTW : ver 2 has this weird issue of the start panel having white blocks on the items (only on the right side of the start menu panel). they are random, sometime they are there and when you restart the m/c seem to disappear.

I think he meant if this is the good version, since you said "don't download this, it's not a good version" or something like that.
