Hmm, but I think the background of the wallpaper should be bright like in your winamp skin...


New wallpaper and desktop personality~

New desktop for my laptop, this time it's from Ai Yori Aoshi. Yup, thats right, the beautiful Aoi-chan!!



Resized to 800x600, and lowered quality so not to hog your connections. I got rid of the game icons on the desktop.. but on this computer, i have Steam and the UT2004 demo, for a party i went to.

Right click on the task bar, then properties, and then put a tick in the auto hide task bar box. Then the only time you'll see the task bar is if the mouse pointer is over where the task bar is.

That's hiding it. Transparancy is a little bit different. StyleXP has an option to do so though. Even though I hate transparency...

Lol, i don't mind telling again. You want the taskbar to have true transparency, not just have it hidden, as Taliesin suggested.

There are two ways of going about this. It really depends on your video card. If you have an nVidia based video card, just get the latest drivers, which come with something cool called nView. To enable transparency with nView, right click on your desktop, select nView properties, go to the effects tab, and check the box that says enable taskbar tranparency, and there you can also set the level of transparency.

If you don't have an nVidia card, the way i do it on my laptop is with TGTSoft's StyleXP, and it works beautifully. Get the latest version of StyleXP from themexp.org, and install it. To enable transparency with StyleXP, open up the StyleXP control panel, and select transparency from the left side menu, and you can select what you want transparent and also what level of transparency you would like. I actually like this way better because you can make your whole start menu transparent, not just the taskbar. If you are not going to skin your system, and don't want to take up any resources, you can actually tell StyleXP to use no resources, on the main page of the control panel for StyleXP. It will still render the transparency, without taking up your resources.

Hope this helps!! If you have any problems, feel free to PM me!

Yeah, StyleXP seems not to have an automagic updater... and with each new version of the program, more cool features are added... so it pays to update once in a while. Hopefully one of the new features will be an automagic updater.

Hehe... automagic...

As mentioned in the spoiler: it's from SaishuuHeiki Kanojo (also known as Saikano or She, the ultimate weapon) . It's indeed a romance anime as you guessed but a bit different from the usual ones (yes major understatement here ), personally I think this is one of the best things ever made, very emotional, warmly recommended. Oh I should mention it left me quite shocked and speechless for half a week after seeing it

As for the source, here ya go people

You can use a program such as ShellEnhancer to allow you to use some transparencies on WinXP.

This site is obviously one of teh best site for winamp skins IMO (not like those crappy sites that provide crappy skins).
It's Japanese though, but very easy to go in.
You could also have a try on the webring that you can see at the bottom of that site, but there are only 2-3 more that really have nice skins IMO

Also I got a new wallpaper too
