|Hi everyone! |
Introducing Work Nite Shift visual-style for Windows 8.1...
This is a theme that was put together by my awesome bud Jamie Green (neiio) as a personal favor to me. He made the basic vs and then sent it to me --- I then made several adjustments to it in WSB, fixed a few bugs, added my own style to it along with several other cool modifications....and am now happy to be sharing it with you all (with neiio's permission of course). If you like dark, slick, matte themes, this one will satisfy. I went over this theme for almost a month, tweaking this, adjusting that, adding small details, adjusting font-colors, adding images, etc., and I have to admit it has turned out to be one hell of a killer vs! Try it out.
|Updated: colorized the mute/unmute buttons on the toolbar.|
Hey gents and ladies, so here's a 2nd Media Player Classic BE skin I made earlier today. The buttons are all text rather than glyphs, which I personally like a lot better. If you go to the official site for MPC BE, and browse the Toolbars section, there are only like less than a dozen (user-made) that are available. Which is sad, because BE (and MPC in general) is such a cool media-player. So look for quite a few skins coming from me; I'm really enjoying making these. They're easy as pie (about as easy as the old UTorrent skins), so I hope some of you will get into skinning this player! If you do, please let me know so I can check your creations out!
Included in the .zip archive is a text-file explaining how to apply the 'toolbar', the background, and also how to optionally hack the media-player's .exe with Resource Hacker and insert the included icon.
*Credits to neiio for the icon.

|My buds ZEFEEN and Tornado at 7Themes.su have ported the Velvet mod of my 'Velvet For Xion' (originally the design of GuillenDesign here at DA) skin to AIMP3.....and have done a hellofa great job!|
So, with their permission, and permission from the master GuillenDesign, I'm sharing it here for my DA friends! (Original CAD skin design is copyrighted, so please do not port, copy, etc. this design without first seeking permission from GuillenDesign)

|My 7th skin for Xion, this one uploaded once before, called something else.....Fixed a couple of small bugs, added some details, and decided to name it Kompact. Since it's rather compact, the name seems to fit! LOL!|
Included in the .zip is a 'readme' txt file, explaining how to install it, and where to download Xion audio player (which you must have to run this skin).
|Here's another cool lockscreen to jazz-up your Win8 or 8.1 login experience....this time with 5 matching very cool Peugeot Onyx (my dream-car) wallpapers, 1920x1080 resolution, all.|
The preview was done in PS, so please don't ask me how I took a screenie of my lockscreen----I didn't. I just tried to mimic the actual look, as close as I could. It actually
looks MUCH better applied.
Remember, the images are all 1920x180, so that means the lockscreen won't look as good (the panel-area where your info is displayed won't line-up) with other resolution monitors.
Unless you do a little cropping and re-sizing, that is.
Here is another cool custom system clock (Timedate.cpl replacement) for your Windows 8 & 8.1 machines. Embedded Clock v.2. Very crisp, smooth, high-contrast, elegant, and stylish.
Shoutout and credits to jimking for the design of the original clock-face.
Included in the file are instructions, a custom Timedate.cpl, and 2 other files compiled by Mr351837 (@ MegaThemer.net. Credits and thanks extended to him.) that you'll need to change the file extensions of.
Read the instructions carefully.
Windows 8.1 ONLY, x64!
|Timedate.cpl system-clocks and Shell32 images to be used with the 'Path' vs for Windows 7 (won't look right with other themes)|
Created to compliment the very cool Path vs, brought to life by the uber-talented Uriy1966 from a concept PSD originally dreamed up by FenGenzus, I have made both matching custom Timedate.cpl files (system-clocks, in 2 separate designs) and also some extra 'Shell32' panels (in .png format, to be used with Theme Resource Changer).
Inside the zip file are 3 folders, 2 with sub-folders...In the main folder and the Shell32 folder are instructions...Please read them and save yourself headaches later.

|Updated 05/19/2014: Completely re-worked. Crisper, brighter, overall color change.|
Nothing special really, but flat, minimal...Clean, crisp, dark.

Well my real name is Jimmy, but I'm best known by my original Internet handle "YourNumbr1Fan"....
I live in a big-ish small town in Tennessee called Cookeville (aka Cookie-Town), home of Tennessee Tech, with my lovely wife Yvonne and our cute little dawgeh Precious. It's a very beautiful place, with rolling hills, mountains, and plenty of cool places to have fun at...
I've been at DA now for a little over 3 years. I originally created an account here only to browse art, but soon became interested in making my own stuff, especially u.i. design, and decided to start uploading my creations. What got me started was making logon-screens for XP...then, I began making Windows 7 logons, some RocketDocks, some Xion Audio Player skins, etc., etc. Now that I've upgraded to Windows 8.1, I'm trying to get into learning all I can about customizing the o.s., and making interface designs that'll compliment the colors, sharp edges, overall flat u.i. This trend (thin, flat u.i. elements) will likely stay with us into all future versions of Windows. It has lots of potential. I believe in the "less is more" minimalist philosophy, and enjoy seeing all the slick, non-bulky themes (visual-styles, elements) that artists are coming up with.
I'm inspired greatly by my talented DA friends, and I try to pick up a new skill (design trick, coding knowledge, etc.) at least monthly. I'm just not able to be here as much as I'd like.
Please enjoy what little bit of artwork I've uploaded here in my Gallery, but also please respect my intellectual property. Do not re-upload my stuff, or use it in anything that you upload (except of course screenshots) without first asking my permission. I'll more-than-likely give it, but it burns me up to see my art used/re-uploaded/modified without my blessings. And yes, that has happened on more than a few occasions. I always ask others if I can use their art in my uploads, if I want to do a project that requires someone else's original designs. And, if they grant me permission, I always credit them and link to them. Please show me the same respect.
Thanks for visiting my little corner of DA, for Watching & Fave-ing!
