Flow_VS by navigatsio Flow_VS by navigatsio
While working on another desktop, I found myself still in a "metal" mood and this is the result of my detour. :-) The zip includes the wallpaper and .msstyle/theme files (full and compact menus) with matching Rainlendar, Sysmetrix and Windows Media Player skins also included! As always, what you see is what you get in one complete package... :D

Enjoy! :-)

Hmm, that's odd! I do have a lot of visual styles installed... maybe something is conflicting? Also, I'm using StyleXP. Maybe it has a problem with some fonts?

Hummm...I've taken a look at the skin on several different machines and I'm still not getting the font effect you're experiencing...I'm just getting clean, clear fonts. I built it with the native Tahoma font specifically to avoid any font problems so I don't think that's it and the image is sized and aligned correctly so I'm befuzzled, my friend. I'll play around with it later and if I find anything, I'll let you know... :D

Thanks tony! :-)
and thanks for the kind words, my friend...they're what keeps me inspired to keep on keeping on! :D I've actually been thinking about making some Firefox skins to match my themes since that's what I use pretty much exclusively...just haven't really checked into what's involved yet but it may be something I'll be doing soon. Stay tuned...there's always something new just around the corner... :D

As usual, I love your visual style Navigasto. You are one of the few people who are risky enough to dive into a VS as complex as this. ;-)

I'm having a weird problem with this visual style however... With Taskbar buttons grouped, the names appear blurry (so blurry that I can't read them). To see what I mean, right click on startbar, go to properties, and turn on "group similar taskbar buttons". Next, open up a bunch of folders or something (so they are grouped), and look at the names. I also have a screenshot for you: [link]

Oops...I do have a coule of complaints lol. I only wish you did work for QCD and perhaps Firefox (for example the the Red Shift Fx theme looks nice with your Octane skin) but alas I must try for harmony rather than a solid theme...woe is me! :cry:

Thanks for the beautiful work...I have only recently become a fan of your approach to skinning. I have been mostly into the more "utilitarian" skins, such as the brilliant work of ~Bose and ~Kol, but you my friend are a true artist. Your work is fresh, original and finely crafted (love your attention to detail!) For sure some of the best offerings at DA belong to you...so thanks again! Peace.

Yep, I try to stay kind of low key...DA has always been my main gallery and I submit to Skinbase.org regularly and a few others but that's about it. You're right though, these things are extremely easy to adjust to your particular monitor/card setup in StyleBuilder or SkinStudio...just adjust the brightness, saturation, hue, color, etc. exactly where you want it. Every video setup is somewhat different, that's why I test my skins on three different computers (two with nVidia chipsets, one with ATI) and try to find a happy medium before I release one...still, everyone's video setup is different. Unfortunately there are no "standards" in place...
I appreciate you stopping by and check back by when you can, Tom...I'm usually always working on something new! :D

Wow navigatsio, this is awesome! I found some of your work only about a month ago or so at Skinartistry. All of it is superb work. I understand what some of the comments are saying, this particular one is a bit too bright for me, but that's easy enough to fix in Windowblinds and WMP. I found a DX theme that looks like you colored this stuff just for it. It's called "Connected" by gef. I'm not sure it's here at DA, but I know it's at WC. Again, great work, and keep 'em comin'!

I haven't checked out many KDE themes lately...I usually use Gnome when I use Linux...but I'll give the metal4kde a peek, my friend. And, as always, I appreciate the kind words and support, Monica! :D

leo...Ben:
I respect your opinions but I suppose I'm just the opposite...I like more graphic intensive, complicated and thoroughly skinned themes else there's not much of a challenge to desktop art, well, to me anyway. Take the challenge (and complexity) out of it and I suppose I'd just hang it up and stick to Windows Classic... :-)

I agree with leosss - my eyes hurt! You've done quality work, but it's just waaay not my style.

good work !!!
too much complicated, but i was watching other styles made by you, and all of them are graphically overloaded (just my personal opinion)
