info: visual style creation

Recommended Posts

recommended tools:

- ResHacker or Restorator or Anolis Resourcer for hacking windows DLL files and editing the shellstyle.dll for themes

- or StyleBuilder (www.tgtsoft.com): for making the Visual Styles (TGTSoft seems to have gone out of business since their website is gone now)

- some kind of paint/image editor like photoshop or paint.net etc

here are 2 sites with lots of useful information:

Logon UIFile Secrets

virtualplastic.

some stylebuilder tutorials:

(old but might still be useful)

nice info . I think Resource tuner is also a useful tool after Res Hacker and Resource tuner can also view png images in file

Thanks especially for the tutorials. Btw although PE Explorer and Restuner are much better, but Resource Hacker is still free and simpler for me :thumbsup_anim: rather old though hehe...

even though its old, and hasn't been updated since like 2006, i still prefer stylebuilder. its easier for me to work with, b/c its more visual than pe explorer etc

stylebuilder isnt perfect though. still some quirks with the program, and i've got a feeling that it won't ever be updated again.

Bump the camera specs and you have a winner. Make it open like HD2 and you have a best-buy option as well.
