Author’s Notes: Presenting IceAngel VS, or “The theme that everybody was waiting for and I took forever to finish” XD.
Before I talk about anything else, I have to say that there is NO SHELLSTYLE. I *was* going to wait until I made the shellstyle before releasing this, but college just started again and I’m fearing that at the rate things are going, if I would have waited until the shellstyle’s finished to release the theme, nobody would be wanting this anymore because everyone would have Vista.
The theme has a thin taskbar, and two substyles: default and compact start menu. There is also a 1024×768 wallpaper included in the zip.
I cleaned up the interface a lot since the version from last year, I especially worked at giving a crisper look to the caption buttons (which is why they are a bit smaller than on last year’s preview) and worked to fix the many bugs that had discouraged me from finishing the theme the first time around. There is still a bug in photshop (well PS7 anyway) with the bottom of the windows. . .I guess Photoshop doesn’t like round window bottoms <.<
For those who don't know how to use it:
1- Get the uxtheme patcher from Neowin.net http://www.neowin.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=140707
2- Install it and restart your PC
3- Unzip the theme into C:\WINDOWS\Resources\Themes
4- Go into your display properties (by right-clicking on your desktop or in the control panel)
5- In the appearance tab, in the first dropdown, there should be a new entry named "Ice Angel"
Author’s Notes: Here we go!
features 2 substyles core.range and core.gee
core.gee is inspired by the layout of GSM to which egolatra kindly invited me after I posted DaftCore …thx again!
in the following weeks I’ll isolate core.gee from the vs and it will be modified with more elements of GSM once finished it’ll be part of a huge awesome suite that’ll be available on GSM in a few weeks you definetly should look out for that!!
CORE.VISUALSTYLE is OpenSource and you can modify, port and release as much as you want w/o permission! Just give credit in some way!

Author’s Notes: Pucko Klassik
A classic Visual Style with the same name as the Swedish chocolate drink. Includes 3 color schemes: Classic, Lime and Pucko. (Font and wallpaper is included too.)
It’s another Windows Classic inspired style. This one however is a little bit inspired by the Glider GTK theme too.
It’s one of those styles that works perfect with the Tango icons. [link]
-Increased the caption font size to 9.
-Vertical taskbar buttons fixed.
-Hovered text is now brighter.
