Doesn't look like there are any differences?

An inactive window is already more transparent than an active window. If you want to post screenshots, post one that shows both active or both inactive windows.

I Love it! Thanks!!

Only thing is I was using the theme that makes the taskbar and titlebar transparent while maximised. The taskbar isnt transparent in this one...

ANy chance you could alter this theme so that the taskbar is also transparent when maximised?

Thanks!!

You're downplaying the biggest feature of this, you should state and screenshot in the first post that it makes the title and taskbar transparent at all times :D

I also like this themeing method, is there any other themes I can use by unzipping them to Resources now Ive patched the main files?

It doesn't make the taskbar transparent when window is maximised...thats what I was asking him to do if it is possible. My old theme had that.
