I made a few desktop pictures that some of you might like, they are in regular and widescreen format, dark and light.

Download! (http://www.louiemantia.com/Empire.zip)

You may also want to download the Kamino Visual Style/guiKIT (V1). Download for Mac or Windows at (http://www.louiemantia.com/?page_id=6). The visual style needs a uxtheme patch (http://www.neowin.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=140707) and the guiKIT needs Shapeshifter (http://www.unsanity.com/haxies/shapeshifter/).
Windows XP and Mac OS X.

If anyone has any questions, you can IM me on AIM (ezralite@mac.com) or MSN (louiemantia@gmail.com).

How do you show your Desktop Background on here? And Sabretooth how did you get your Windows to look like that?(the bar at the bottom)

You have to upload it somewhere on the internet. I suggest www.imageshack.us that's pretty straightforward and you should be able to figure out how to figure it out for yourself.

03-06-2005, 03:28 PM
Do you have to save the desktop into your pictures folder too?

03-06-2005, 07:25 PM
press the "prtsc" or printscreen button.
go into paint or a photoeditting program and paste
save the image as a jpg and upload to imageshack.us
it will give you codes to use for forums and then just post it here ;)

My guess would be that's because he's running some kind of shell client or virtual desktop :dozey: I'd advise against asking what that is. If you want to learn about shells you should take a course in Operating Systems. :p

My desktop (http://img202.exs.cx/img202/5384/deskie6jr.jpg)

Yes. I am a DragonBallZ nerd.....shup :p

I'm not using another shell client. I'm using a program to use shadows, a program for the dock, and a program for the large "panther-like" icons.
The taskbar and windows are skinned by msstyles (mentioned in first post).

Intriguing, I figured an interface like that would have to be some form of shell. Well look who doesn't know crap :D

;) Longhorn

Nah, just another skin/shell pack. Search for 'Longhorn Transformation Pack' on Google. It has some pretty sleek looking skins. But it modifies your system, so if you're planning on uninstalling, keep your WinXP CD handy.

Stormtroopers look like their armour was inspired off bulldogs. Clones look cooler.
