Many of you may remember using my old VXP skin, next to the Vienna trilogy it has been my most popular skin and was popular long before Vienna was a twinkle in its Daddy's eye..
Anyway.. Ive been planning on redoing VXP from scratch for quite a while, it was a VS port, didn't have most of the newer WB features like per pixel frames, transparency, dropshadows, tool icons etc, so this will be a totally new skin, designed from the ground up and hopefully will be the first skin I do a Win 7 version of also. With 7 coming out and 2010 right around the corner...
VXP 2010 it is...
It will have more modern stylings, as smooth as possible graphics, transparency, borderless frames and tab backgrounds, all the bells and whistles and designed to make the best use out of scenic nature walls which personally I cannot get enough of.
Anyway.. here is a shot of the alpha workings of XP.. where I always start.... will update as I progress. The blue area of the top frame is transparent too.. just hard to tell over this background.
