The end idea is to make the right and left ends of the taskbar look like a mirror image of each other, like this (photoshopped): http://img294.imageshack.us/img294/9969/sdso.png
If it also were to take as little taskbar space as the real SD button, that'd be just perfect.
Well it took a while but I think I've actually got it right.

The first zip file has no hover or press effect but the second one does
Can you make a version of transpeek2 that will work with a smaller taskbar?

Hello Everyone,
First: Great work. Love them all.
Second: I was wondering if anyone could make a start button for the game EVE Online. I love that game and would really like a nice start button to go with it. It can be of the EVE logo or any of the 4 races; Amarr, Minmatar, Caldari, or Gallente. Sorry I don't have any pics but I am on my phone atm. If need be I will post some pics of what I was thinking when I get a chance.

Thanks in advanced.

I'll give it a go if you want.. I just found both the colour and b/w logos for all four races, so that should keep you going for a while.

So.... Do you want them to be dark (for a light background/taskbar) or light (for a dark background/taskbar)?

Dark for a light background would be nice. You can make both if you want.

Hey... Sorry I took so long to reply, the boss took us out for drinks after work today. And when the boss runs a pub tab, we help make it all worth while.....

Anyway, the BMP files are in the RAR, along with the PSD files if you want to play with them (and have PhotoShop). I've got some plain black and white versions of the logos as well if you're prefer a more minimal look, but here's a few to play with in the mean time.

They are awesome!!! Great work ZaLiTh, and pretty fast too. They are exactly what I was looking for. I will try them out when I get my main comp working again. The dual bios on my msi p67a just took a crap this morning. So I have to RMA it.

Eh.. That really sucks, hope you get it sorted soon then.. I just noticed they fit the smaller Windows taskbar better than the larger one, so depending on the taskbar size you use, I might need to fix that. Just let me know once you get to try them.

Who is that message meant for...? What Start Orb is it? It would help if you were a bit more specific (quote the original post or mention a name or something)...
