btw, is it possible to have XP style taskbar in win2000? And to talk more in general, some kind of skin support?

I saw something similar in Win98 Revolution pack so I hope it can be the same for Win2000 too :D

1. No

2. No

This project had a short life and i'm afraid it's dead now. :(

Is this project dead?
Well, it is kinda stagnated.

Tihiy, perhaps a note in the first post about the status of your work on this project would be helpful? Or, if you prefer, we could do something with this thread (un-sticky, lock, etc).

Onos!!! It's dead?

I can help starting skinning support and maybe have a look at patching TextOutA and TextOutW with Freetype for ClearType font render feel... Any chance of opening the project to the community Tihiy?

but when can we see some ClearType in Windows 2000?

never going to happen, Xenomorph

c'mon folks, read this thread as to why Cleartype won't ever be implemented in Win2k:

sorry to bring bad news about that but life is sometimes cruel

at least it's nice of Tihiy to make a Win2k Revo Pack now that I've migrated my relative's computers from Win98se/WinME to Win2000 and have installed Gurgelmeyer's Unofficial Win2k SP 5.1.2195.24 refresh pack on their machines

I beg to differ...

Unfortunately I have just about zero time to perfect it, but it's a start in case anyone wants to play with it. The source should be included.

EDIT: This wasn't the newest version I had. If you visit the link above you can get version 0.1.5, which has some text positioning improvements.

So, it Requires:

- Windows 2000, SP4 & IE6 preffered (not tested with IE5)

- 32-bit video mode. If your videocard does not support it, you're out of luck.

Installing RP 2.01 [attached to this post]:

- Extract/Run setuprp.exe [safe mode recommended]

- Reboot

=====================

Can you help me ? My PC restart to Blue Screen [ERROR!]after i installed the RP202.

1.My PC: P4 3.0G + Memory 1G + FX5200 +80G

2.Without net.framework2.0

3.Without Vista icon pack3.0

4.What are the Requires for before RP202 Installer?

5.How to install the RP202 ? step by step ?

Thank you for this great tool. It applies 32bit with alpha to tray icons too, using explorer.exe.32bitimgl. But animated tray icons are buggy, sometimes they don't animate at all, sometimes they do, but at random fps, so all tray icon anims broken :( Any ideas why?

I just installed Windows 200 Revolutions Pack. This is what part of my desktop looks like:

revolutionspack2000viewla7.jpg

Perhaps the paragraph below gives a solution to this, but I can't understand it. Is there a solution to my problem posted anywhere that I may actually be able to understand?

How to force application to display 32-bit image lists:

This workaround cures black shadows or discolored images in programs which were written unaware of 32-bit icons with Windows 2000.

Create "your program.exe.32bitimgl" file for your program.exe in the folder this exe resides. Viola!

You can also use this trick instead of "256-color tray patch" for explorer.exe, however, this isn't the right way. I think.
