BSH's Neon toolbar/tstatus *1.1.7* [W2K version]

Recommended Posts

First of all, all I did was color his other neon (green) icon to grey, but thanks for the acknowledgement regardless. And I'm glad you made these, however the alpha blending is _hugely_ better (in general, not dissing these particular icons or anything) and I would love for BSH to do that tiny little bit of extra work to finish off the status icons to include the inactive queue icons as per how I made them, but with alpha blending -- or if you could suggest how I can do that, that would work.

Feel free to compare the two and make your own judgement:

Even if you widened the black border around the normal one, it would never get the smooth edges that the alpha blending has. Of course, that's just the advantage of alpha blending, and it's OS specific. (Switch to mac or any linux gui if you can't get winxp.) I'm glad it exists in this format for win2k, etc people, but I would really like this finished with alpha blending, thanks.

heh, yeah they are pretty crap :lol: and I'm working on a set right now in the vein of D's 443 status icons which should have fewer round edges.

also,

alpha blending does work in W2K (winamp5 for example), but I guess it has to be added to the code. maybe the developers could look into this.

Scary, because I made the same toolbar, I thought why

not, I can play with Paint Shop Pro. You search icon is a

bit smaller then the rest. Total bmp horizontalsize = 241

instead of 240, is this normal?

But I think you make/made many "nonXP"-users happy.

PS I would like to display my version, but how?

Yep, I just took the search icon from BSH's latest update and didn't bother stretching it out to match the others as it is pretty far from the rest in the actual toolbar so the difference wouldn't be easy to spot. And the bmp size is slightly larger because I didn't actually measure the finished product, rather just relying on my eye.
