August 9th of 2004 I registered as MSFN user and started to share my best-known project to date: XPize.

Hi all! Im new here. Im Spanish so sorry for my spelling.

Well, I want to completely Xpize Windows XP because, as you know, some XP icons are still in 2000/98/ME format. I dont like this, so I started to modify some system files such as shell32.dll and zipfldr.dll in order to change some "old" icons.

My first post @ MSFN

Let's take a mini-tour of XPize evolution:

The Beginnings:

XPize 1.0:

XPize 2.5:

XPize 3.x:

In the meantime, XPize uAE was born as the perfect tool for applying XPize touch both silently or using direct i386 integration.

I am very happy with the acceptance XPize has had throughout all this time, from starting as a project for personal use only to even reaching Microsoft doors.

I would like to thank all the people who has colaborated in many ways to the growth of XPize: testers, users sending feedback, mirrorers...but my special thanks go to:

flyakite, kalavera, SyMoNsAyS, MartinL, Werewolf, nuhi, xper, Dutchdre and klasa (sure I'm forgetting someone else :P )

Let's continue the feast with XPize 4 and XPize uAE 2 :)

It had much less customization and was released in a pack with the actual files makecabbed ready for integration in your i386 dir. Of course, no extras. It wasnt untill 2.5 that XPize had installer.

Wow, is it already that long ? On the other hand, see how for you've come.

I wouldn't want to miss Xpize anymore. It makes XP look "contemporary".

Congratulations XPero :thumbup
