Well, the themes look good and all but I ran into the same problem I have with almost every skin I try to use.

Since I use a resolution of 1920 x 1200 on a 24 inch widescreen LCD, I set my DPI at 150 and use large fonts. Whenever I try to use a skin things just don't scale correctly. Fonts appear halfway inside and halfway outside the window they're supposed to be in, the user picture inside the start menu remains off center and all black.

So, I guess I'll have to stick with the default XP theme, as it's the only one I've found that really scales correctly at the DPI I use.

Thanks tho. :rofl_mini:

If you like media centers theme better, and lets face it, anything is better, you should not have any problem with that one if you need it I got it.

MCE is quite gay ;)
Too poppy..

Still, quite better then original XPs...


You should try to apply UXT Theme patcher (something like that), and use skins standalone, without any WindowBlinds cr@p.. In this case everything scaling perfectly normally ;)

If you remember the software called StyleXP ? I remember using it looong time ago. It was made by TGTSoft.
Soo try this software, I never had problems with skins applied with that peace of code ;)
Download it Here


p.s. Hmm, it seems that someone had bought that company, I mean, website looks completely different.. still, try it ;)
And geez... LOL :) , they selling CHEAP skins :D haha...

Hmm, Again, sorry but I'm not gettin' the point of the joke :)

I heard that in gay community, "The Bear" means big and strong homosexual..


Soo, your joke was referring to this?

"And why don't you tell us how you feel next time, Bear!
MCE is quite gay ;)"
