  1. yep, Many things had happen in real life you're very welcome. oh btw I updated the pack.
  2. So hello guys, been a long time... Some of us might still using Xp in daily use. Long story short, I created an advanced transformation/customization pack for windows XP, This pack bring some cosmetics change which only available on vista and later operating system. And also some other interesting customization. you can see what this pack modifies in galleries below: Download Here Instruction how to install is inside the archive: readme.txt. you should read it. If you like it, use it, and want to support the development consider a Donation.
  3. Hi there... First sorry for the bump... I have found the first half color pallete for txtsetup phase... But only the the first half... after this screen (see picture below).. the color is reverted to normal ones... I couldn't find the responsible file for the rest setup phase... here is the pcocess... 1. obtain setupldr.bin from xp CD. 2. split the file using any hex editor by searching the 'MZ' string... we'll use the first occurence... 3. save from 'MZ' string until the end of file as an exe file. 4. and also the loader (from the first up to just before 'MZ' string) 5. open the exe file search for 00 04 02 06 01 05 03 07yup they are the color codes... you can see the available color codes in cmd by typing: color /? 6. replace with any desired value... 7. update the checksum.... (important or else it won't boot) 8. join the exe back with the loader.. 9. drop in xp CD...
  4. whoaa... hello... the steps should be generic for all hex editor... the only required feature is "search and replace".... make sure to hit save when done editting.... to be safe, make a copy of regedit into somewhere else.. then edit the copied ones... not the original... also after editting you'll need to replace the icon with the new one....
  5. please provide an exact same steps that you have done. what are you installing, the operating system, hardware configuration, some PC background, I mean, is that new/old?, BIOS setting? it may will help us to provide an answer..
  6. FX updated to 1.4.10, the patch finally replaced reshacker treeview with real icons, my patch no longer necessary to mention..
  7. First sorry for the bump, but the info i still relevant, I still have them but it's not the same as AMIRZ's file, I have fixed them myself, also I have removed the dependency to vista emulation library, packed them into single folder to save HDD space, and make a launcher for them, but I only able to upload the cards game.. here the links: http://www.mediafire.com/?3waqwoinqki6d5z but the link above only contain the executable files only, here is the links for card cab: http://www.mediafire.com/?qiz2ciw05nz the cabinet also have been tweaked, now it contain the big deck card and similar to vista ones... drop the cabinet inside CARDSGames folder.. EDIT:really sorry there was small mistake in first link... it's fixed now,,,
  8. So as the title says.. this little program will add smooth transition when changing wallpaper in windows XP and enabling desktop marque selection, but because this is still in test version there is no unattended switch to run on start up.. please do not redistribute... Where to download: see attachment To run: 1. Put the extracted ZIP content somewhere on your hard drive 2. Both files must be in the same directory 3. Run the executable 4. The rest is self explanatory I'll update this program when it's ready.. This is small part of my bigger project, expect more to come soon... desktop marque selection: yes this is in windows XP.. known limitation: 1. if you have paint desktop version enabled, the text that paint the windows version on the desktop, it won't shows up... Also I have question to the mods if the project is complete, which means that it will transform windows XP into "unbelievable" where should I put the thread? updating this one or make an new one inside OS transformation pack sub forum and if I have to do so, what should I do to this thread? Sorry there was a small bug which I forgot to fix... it's fine now... new attachment attached. eXp.zip
  9. I'm sorry if I'm not made myself clear, the #1 post still applied to XP's regedit and taskmgr also outlook and possibly another XP programs which ultilize ImageList_LoadImage... while the #19 post only applied to vista ones, which file is provided by xsallyty.. Many thanks Rick.. I also notice that several picture have gone.. I'll update it as soon as I can...
  10. sorry for taking so long.. anyway here it is: for vista's taskmgr above: original: 6A EC 33 DB 56 89 77 08 43 patched: 6A EC 56 6A 21 89 77 08 5B
  11. Updated with more optimized patch and more support, also I would thanks to Ricktendo64 for updating my patch above...
  12. :oops: I completely forgot to post the AskVG link about Resource Hacker FX here .... Thanks a lot Mona... Yeah It's perfect now.... :prop:
  13. Finally I have found a "Super Simple Patch" Finally after long time searching.... now it is possible to make resource hacker display new treeview style (look my original post below...) by applying Hex Patch.... so without wasting time here is it: 00027124 10 ==> 20 000272A8 00 ==> 08 Load Resource Hacker into your favorite hex editor... then go to the given address and change those byte(s)..... from 10 to 20 and 00 to 08. Hit save..!! (it is always better to make a backup..) Now replace "SMALLICONS" bitmap resources inside Resource Hacker with higher color pallete... please note the background must remain the same color.... (you can take it from DLL's resources below..) And... Congratulation now you have a Shiny Resource Hacker..... Simple isn't it....?? (currently I have only checked with the newest Resource Hacker...) Dubby 2012..... ====original post here==== Ok.... As you know already that, our favorite tool Reshack or Resource Hacker come with it's original icon (well it's a bitmap actually..).... I don't really like it (sorry...) So I tried to replace it... but all I got is this weird color.... So what Happen actually....? It's just our operating system won't allow it.... but it can fixed by patching a (single) system file.. but I know that many people wouldn't want it.... so instead of it, I wrote my own DLL which provide such function in order to make display the icon above displayed properly... eh wait I also make more simple.... I move the bitmap out from resource hacker and place it in my DLL.... here is result: Ok.... in order to occupy this icon all you have to do is this 8 simple steps! (I assume that you have resource hacker installed in your system..): 1. Download the DLL below... 2. Grab any hex editor... 3. Copy the reshack.exe onto your desktop... 4. Make a backup of it... (just in case) 5. Open up the resource hacker (reshack.exe) with hex editor 6. Replace the occurrence of COMCTL32 with: COMCTLRH Save it... 7. Replace back to it's original location... (you have made a backup, don't you...?) 8. Done... Note: the COMCTLRH is the name of my DLL... if you don't like the icon just reshack it.... the image is located in the COMCTLRH.dll... Download the dll here: http://www.mediafire...g828uem470fjy18 (only 4 kb..!!)

The screenshot above is taken from windows 7, any version of windows and resource hacker will do... Enjoy.... :gleam:
  14. I can make it to display properly in all windows version, just wait... until it's finished... I'm very sorry for posting in English....
  15. :omg: MD5 is useful for verifying the file which we are downloading is exactly the same as you upload.. and to make sure that the file is not being corrupted while transporting... because if the file is being corrupted then the MD5 hash value will be different... please correct me if I'm wrong....
  16. Wow very nice addition to windows XP.... :thumbsup_anim: :prop:

  19. Uhm.... you'll gonna neeed hex editor to do that patch..., for example just google for hex editor... you'll find alot of hex editor available.... then copy your regedit and taskmgr to another location... find those hex code occurance... then replace with reversed code above... save it.... and if you want to replace the system file use replacer (google it) for the easiest way.. Hope this help... By the way sorry for late reply.... just log in back in a moment.... And sorry for my english....
  20. Just give it a try,, I'm sure the hex color values is the same..
  21. Waw, thanks alot Gabee and Ricks.. so sorry for late replying, busy with some assigment..
  22. Hm.. you should copy your shell32.dll to somewhere else.. then open it with any hex editor.. find those bytes with find hex values function or replace function to do replace as soon as possible, once you have replaced the code, you have to replace back your shell32.dll to system32 directory, for the easiest way just use replacer-google it- it's always better to have a back up.., hope this help..
  23. Hello all.... Most of us knows that when we right click the drive and choose properties there will always a pie chart (except you've remove them...hehe..). I don't like the color of it... So I manage to change it... Searching it everywhere and I found this thread about 1,5 years ago... (at msfn) Still couldn't solve my problem though :no: ... But yesterday... It inspiring me.. then I start searching through system file and WOW I Found It.....!!! :lol: here is my mod... Here is what to do.... open shell32.dll with any hex editor... (you better copy it somewhere else before open it...) and then... [Pie chart] Original 90 00 00 FF 00 FF 00 FF 00 00 00 80 00 80 00 80 00 Replace with 90 0F 63 FF 00 1B A9 1B 00 01 31 8C 00 01 57 01 00 [Free Space] Original 68 FF 00 FF 00 EB 09 Replace with 68 1B A9 1B 00 EB 09 [Used Space] Original 68 00 00 FF 00 FF 71 Replace with 68 0F 63 FF 00 FF 71 Note: search the original hex code and replace with reserved code... Replace Back to system32 folder... (use replacer for the easiest way... but it's better to make backup first...) Done.... that's it.... Enjoy.... Huge thanks to Mr. Peteski at msfn... for his hex color code and his color suggestion.... but the rest I did it myself..... :icon_cool: PS: sorry for my (bad) english.... I'm sure this applies to all windows version....
