My system is patched and the theme is in the correct folder. I'm currently on a different 3rd party theme, so I know that my system is patched correctly and accepting themes. Any tips on why this one isn't opening?

I like this VS. Any chance of bordering taskbar items? Also items within the group boxes are a little too bright...any chance of making an ergo version? Thank you.

Ooups! almost perfect, would be better to name color scheme by their name like Blue, Green, Brown, ... rather than type1, type2, type3, ...

Minor details but if you have spent enough time to make such a nice VS, why not to spent a little bit more time to document the color scheme name?
Reply
:iconvekanoid:
vekanoid Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2008
Cause I can't define all that colors. For example, what You think about color name on this preview? :) It is not brown, it is not green it is not gray... It's not so hard scrolling combobox and observe colors.
Anyway thanks for comment :)

Stradivarius Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2008
There is no need to be accurate. Let say if you name it "Milk Coffee" this will inspire something in the brown tone. Way more informative than Type3. It's not hard at all to give names. Here is the list I propose: Blue, Green, Brown, Dark Green, Dark Blue, Purple.
