Windows 7: Stardock - ObjectDock Customization

Stardock - ObjectDock Customization

Just been messing about with customizing Objectdock backgrounds, you can get some wicked effects. They are actually fairly easy to edit.
Basically you edit the images the way you want them (try keeping within the image size) wack them in a new folder under the stardock directory ) edit the ini file (supplied below) just change the name inside the ini file to reflect the new name of your folder eg. in this case cell red mesh and away you go.

Don't worry about the cache.png files I think they get created automatically

I've only tested it with the new version of objectdock 2.0 Object Dock 2.0 download

Has anyone else played around with them ?

Years ago, I started making my own OD backgrounds, and found it easiest to just put them in the 'Shiny Black' folder. When I want to change, I just rename the dock.png and then rename the new image dock.png. Just the lazy way of doing it...

Here's a couple more

If any one has a request, feel free to post them up I'm sure we can come up with something be it colour schemes, maybe something to match your current theme/wallpaper or even something that resembles your taskbar.

Those look great! The last time I tried to use objectdock, though, it said the start menu wasn't supported in 64 bit. Anyone know if that has been remedied?
