Would you mind making a WMC theme that uses the Theater background for all the images through out WMC? That would be good....

If its to big to upload to skydrive, just use winrar to split the file into 50mb files and then upload them to your skydrive.

Hey John here is the newly configured ehres.dll. In the zip file you will find two folders. One folder called "Original Files", that one has your original ehres.dll file, along with your original png files. The other folder, "USE THIS ONE" is the one with the edited ehres.dll file. You will also see the two png files I used for your ehres.dll file. Let me know if you need any help or if the file did not work for you.

I really like this one. The eye color really compliments the color when the controls are up.

One day I am going ot get myself a really nice digital camera, and then I'll begin making all sorts of new images to be incorporated into the W7 system. Until then it is only what I can find on the net...

Thanks for the great work, Zay! It's beautiful!
