Thread for my new skin w/ tiles (and maybe other stuff)

Well, that was a good 20 minutes to upload.
Phew and Yay. Done. :)

It makes me wonder if people are copying the whole CSM website to their computers for safekeeping.Much like how it was done on Open Shell GitHub. I'm guilty of that too in 2018,I used HTT...

Looks good for the most part, I did make some changes since those earlier releases though (and the classic styles), so I'll do a new description.

You can make some further changes if something doesn't seem clear. Also, for the imag...

I don't see a way to send a private message. Oh well.

To tell you the truth, I've had this text file on my desktop for many months waiting for you to come out with your final skin versions.I guess there never will be a fina...

Very interesting, thanks for that info. I will try that Aero Compatible program, and I might even try to mess around with Blender to see if I can vaguely replicate the appearance. I feel like there has to be some way to balance out the alpha opacity bett...

question chitchat

I've probably mentioned this somewhere before about the low alpha values when using glass not looking the same on CSM/OSM.
I'll just throw it out there one more time.

There is one other thing which Ivo has happen when there is no glass third party availa...

Hi bonzibudd.
Yep, been a while. Got my first covid shot a month ago. :)

Hi @CTVCAM8

It's been a minute, I hope you are doing well. I feel like I have gotten to a good place with my Fluent-Metro/Immersive skinning stuff, but I had a question about one thing, which is how you do stuff with Premultiplied alpha. If it's not too c...

Hallo, after update to Windows 10 21H1, Open-Shell was no more running, then I tried to reinstall it, it fails always with the Error-Box "Could not access network location *:\Program Files\Open-Shell First, I removed Open-Shell with MicrosoftProgram_Instal...

Thread for my new skin w/ tiles (and maybe other stuff)

question chitchat

Ok, that background opacity does make sense. I don't know if I'm going to change anything yet, but I might end up just forcing the opaque scrollbar that I have already created, which uses the immersive colors.

In the meantime, I'm going to keep working ...

We all find out sooner or later that the scrollbar is a separate entity.

With transparency, it is transparent to the desktop behind the menu.If you ever used the original edge browser, you would notice the sametransparent effect on the fav...

Ok, I finally came back to this thread, and I have a question about the scrollbar for the Windows 7 style menu.

On my Windows 10 skin, there are options for both a transparent and opaque left-hand side, and while the opaque scrollbar works fine, the tra...

Revision?

Please show the revision number of Open Shell somewhere. An "about" in the right click context menu (=== open shell menu ===) would be great.

question chitchat

Win 10 probably is more linear.Still, as I found out with CSM/OSM, if one makes the skin color mask set up for the Auto accent color,it can be made to match the taskbar color,but then one has to make another more intense color mask to match up to the t...

Yeah, I did notice the shadow difference. I don't think I've ever seen a main menu shadow on the Win7 menu, but there might have been some tweaks to enable it under certain circumstances.

One thing that I did realize is that Windows Vista actually d...

Woops, the 7 screenshot is still on the Win7 drive.
The one above is another capture on Win10. :) Fixed

Here is a screenshot of the Windows 7 system.I decided to put an option in the skin to have the main menu shadow turned off by default,while still l...

Other stuff.
Grandmaster, I have a question.

Have you ever seen the native Windows 7 start menu have a shadow on the right and even onto the taskbar?

Mine doesn't. I am wondering if I should put an option in the WIN7LIKE skins to disable the shadow. W...

If you eventually run out of tint colors, there are pattern masks that you can use.Sometimes I used text set to a color, but most of the time I used a 16x16 bitmap as the reference color that tiles itself.I used both methods (opaque 0 to 255) or (2...
