XPize 3.1

Thanks for the new version! :thumbup

But I am really sad for 3.1's disability to patch i386 folder!

I think I will have to do it manually!  :no:

No, use uAE 1.1 for that. I want normal XPize to be for the general public, and uAE for advanced. That's why I made that switch.

Too true! Downloaded Xpize uAE1.1 and have successfully patched the i386 folder.

Now it is a new run with Ryan's 1.2.1 pack + xpize 3.1 + nlite 0.99.9 = Better windows ! :w00t:

I love this pack thanx you for making it :) what I'd like to add is well I'll let the picture speak for it'self (the about bout is nice VERY nice) but if you look at the pic the monitors look out of place (the one with the theme on it really looks out of place) could something be done about it ?? Oh plus I did a Fresh install of 3.1 and the logon/logoff is in the "old Luna" style. While I'm at it when windows is shutting down you dont have a status (windoers is saving your settings/windows is shutting down ext) Could something be done about this (I like to know what windows is doing)

@Bytestar: thanks, I will check it

@Romey: first of all thanks for the comments. About the monitor..I will try to replace that. About the logon, you're saying that the XPize logon didn't work for you? anyone had this issue also with 3.1?
