nope file has 5 MB of content but all I can get is the icon

the little red icon all by its tiny little self in the center of the screen. the 5+mb of content are unaccessable for some reason when I double click on it.

it is identified as .themepack

maybe that's enuff time invested already :-)

well here's my first attempt:

Normal:


Hover:


Clicked:


im still tweaking this build, which im calling 'dark' (clever name i know) or 'aerospace' (a reference to it's original theme see below), as explorer doesn't work properly. a.k.a open windows do not appear in the superbar (i'll try to post images later). also im still working on the fourm logo build, which i will call 'seven fourms'.

note: Spoondude on [WIP|WBA|BETA] AeroSpace - WinMatrix is the owner of the images i used for the dark/aerospace orb. i in no way claim it as my own i am simply using his/her work. if they don't want me to i will imediatly stop using it.
