Windows 2000 Revolutions Pack

Tihiy: could you take another look at Miranda if you get the chance? The .32bitimgl method was working originally but something that's changed in the meantime appears to have broken it partly, at least for me. The same chat dialog only has correct icons on mouseover, while some parts of the UI don't seem to draw correctly, though I'm not sure why.

Cheers!

Checked last 0.7.x version and did work for me.

However, i can think one reason: IF those icons are painted over WHITE (window) color, then they may have broken shadow.

This limitation is because of some complicated matters and is candidate for next [if there is] version.

Well it's not white; off-white, but not actual white. However, that does appear to be the issue, as per the attached picture - if I change to, say, Slate colour scheme or anything similarly darker, it's no longer there.

I've seen the Add/Remove Programs previously and quite like it, but I haven't noticed anywhere whether there's any way to make it replace the standard one automatically? That would be nice - currently I'm using Safarp which adds a control panel item, and then disabling the original one in tweakui, which i presume should be possible with this as well.

Fixed:

- Problems with icons drawn on white (window) color

- Toolbar 16-colored disabled icons were sometimes weird

RP Installer:

- Easy install/upgrade/uninstall

- File patching (yea, i didn't want to, but some changes must be made)

- Silent install & slipstreaming (possibly)

Revolutions Pack for Windows 2000 is designed to be language neutral. This is goal for all versions.

In fact, 2.0 is ready BUT! There is file replace issue. It fails to replace system file even if I specify to do this before startup :(

It works if started in Safe Mode, but it is not comfortable. I'll release it after finding way ASAP.

hi tihiy, testting it for you tonight...

any changes in the rpl2k.dll?

I've written what's changed.

You'll have to write installer routines for rpl2k.dll now yourself, or use my installer.

and once again i ask you, why not team up?

Where's screenshot i've been asking for?
