    Release 7

    Good to know you're still working on it My only suggestions are: support for patching Remote Desktop Connection 7.0 and some kind of Reloader. Maybe the "Generic" style I proposed some time ago would be nice too but that's not a priority. PS Happy holidays
  2. * Per cambiare tema To change the theme * non piace il tema I don't like the theme I understand what you mean... There are a lot of people who think xpize is just a theme, and there're also a lot of people who think the applied theme can't be changed after installing xpize.

    Firefox users:

    If there has to be an XP-looking Firefox theme, I would personally recommend MozXP. This theme doesnn't look like IE6 but it has XP icons. But IMHO it shouldn't be included in xpize, personally I wouldn't like to see my Firefox with a theme I didn't choose...
  4. Oh well... I didn't know that. And, to be honest, I was not sure I could finish them. So the only thing which has to be done is to use a blank background... You spared me a lot of work XD Well, I would like to see this in next release, but do as you like.
  5. I'm currently working on it: I made, so far, 27 BMPs. Now I'm going on holiday for 10 days but when I come back I'll finish the work (hoping that Release 6 won't come out before).
  6. Here's the updated Italian translation. it__11_08_09_.7z
  7. Thanks, that helped. So far, this visual style is unfinished. I don't know if I'll be able to finish it before the next release, I'll see what I can do.
  8. I'm planning to make a clean install of XP SP3 on my VM to test it better (the actual installation is a mess as I tested both the betas and the release). The only request I have is: what about a "reloader" tool as in xpize 4.7? I didn't find it in Release 4. As for the resources, there are a couple of things I would like to see: - A generic style for bitmaps as I proposed in this topic, but I can't find the resources to make them by myself... is it possible to unpack the xpize 5 installer to get the icons I need? - A new style for the "Abut Windows" logo. Current one looks too "grainy" IMHO (I can try to make these ones too). PS I'm making a visual style based on Media Center but more modern-looking and with more colours. Take a look if you like.

    Vize 2.0 Release 1

    That's nice. I'm looking forward to test it on my Vista Business x64 SP2 laptop.
  10. Here's a little idea I recently had. In the new xpize 5 release 4, I see that there're many "styles" to choose from (and I like the idea). So, I was thinking of a "generic" style which can be suitable for many Visual Styles. I'm thinking of bitmaps with the same icons, but with a white background. As the default background in wizards is white, i think this can fit well with the overall style of the windows. And it is suitable for third party Visual Styles. I would like to do the work, but I don't have the original icons for each bitmap. I did a couple of examples (note that they're not actually patched, they're only edited pictures): (I used WereWolf's control panel icon on DeviantArt to make this example) I haven't thought yet about a generic msgina.dll or a generic logonui.exe because I have no idea of how they could be...

    That's good news. I have a little idea for wizard bitmap style... Thinking about a "Generic" style suitable with all visual styles. I'll post it soon.
