What is Dazzla's Shellstyle for? There are four that already come with Element.  Where does this one go?  Sorry for the dumb question if it is one.

Did you look at the screenshot and then look at the one that comes with the VS?

The one that em3 made really isn't bad...I just think Dazzla's matches a tad better.

there's a readme file in that zip when you dl it. basically just overwrite the four shellstyles with the one u dl, but change the theme first before you do otherwise it wont work.

Man, the whole wide world of Element 2. :) I'd love to host any and all of the Element 2 files. I have a pretty short URL and lots of bandwidth. I'll host any Element stuff that's looking for a long-term host. Just PM me. Don't know if you anyone needs it, but I'm willing to provide.

Thanks brian502 & bigl523. I wasn't sure if there should be four separate shellstyle.dlls for each of the folders. I guess not.

Actually I think I did take a few ideas from ur skin, and another few from other great skins I've used too. Sorry if i didn't ask for ur permission 1st. If u want to take the skin down by all means please do.

This is how Microsoft should designed their Luna - it looks good, and is not too minimalistic.

Yeah, I'm gonna remake those little watermark images from scratch when I get home, as well as update the blue bar at the top of the CP in category view.

Agreed, I would still have had luna on regular rotation if it looked like this...

good job em3.

If I could make recommendations on any changes it would be in the compact styles to change:

Make the scroll bars thinner (to 15 px)

Get rid of the pressing effect on the scroll bar gripper

Remove the gradient on the toolbar image

Remove the orange gradient on the top of the start panel

Remove the orange gradient in Dazzla's shellstyle

Make the shellstyle a combination of Dazzla's and em3's

and create an olive and silver schemes... :D

But that's just me...

you can change this yourself by right-clicking on your desktop and going to properties /appearence / advanced (click on scrollbar)

that's how i made it 15px.

Do not remove these!

Remove the gradient on the toolbar image

Remove the orange gradient on the top of the start panel

Remove the orange gradient in Dazzla's shellstyle

Where these colors can be changed? Shellstyle or VS?

I will not change or remove anything. It is only one persons opinion. Version 2 is done now.

You can change those colors in the shellstyle.

It's okay, I would have liked if you asked first or give credit. You did a nice job though.

I managed to tweak the compact start menu so the icons don't looked so squished. This is a personal mod that I'm doing in windowblinds...so don't yell at me too loud for using wb.

Nothing needs to be changed. I think the Visual Style is great as it is.

Since v2 is finished. A suggestion...

How about a WB theme? I dont use WB at the moment, though I want to in the future, but i'm sure alot of people would like a WB theme. The log off captions could also be intregrated into it. I'm sure alot of WB users would like this.
