Sorry, m'lad. One cannot simply add a transparent 'frosted' element on top that will blur layers below it. One must copy the background and blur that. ;)

Voting shall commence. I can make the vote count public, but I do not think that it should be shown who has voted for who. Opinions?

Please make it a poll

It looks like CMD wins hands down!

A good MSC theme could be Myspace Layouts, but then again, there are so many (someone could just rip and post it as their own in 2 minutes).

Thanks for all the compliments guys. I needed my return to the MSC world to be spectacular, you know. :wink:

Since we're all being so open: Stephen got my vote. Innovation FTW. :)

CMD, How did u make the aero glass effect, was it a blurred alpha on one layer or did you copy the background then make it blurred?

As Helio said, it's a blurred duplicated layer. I used the same mask for the white window body and the blurred background so the blur only showed up where the window was.

For anyone interested in taking a look, I've uploaded the PDN to my site. It's 50 layers, and 8.42MB when decompressed. I put up both a ZIP (5.17MB) and a 7z (4.73MB).

Download:

[ ZIP ] | [ 7z ]

And I actually named the layers as I was making it for once! All the layers have semantic and descriptive names, so you should be able to look around without getting lost. :wink:

Of course, should anyone encounter difficulties with one of the archives, such as repeated corrupted downloads, PM me so I can re-upload a fresh copy. The 7z file is for those who have the 7-Zip archive utility installed. If you don't have 7-zip, download the ZIP or download 7-Zip beforehand. 7-Zip is awesome. :D

I voted for Stephan, CMD's entry was good, but based on other browser designs if you know what I mean, Stephans was totally new. :)

Son, someday you will make a girl happy for a short period of time. Then she'll leave you & be with men that are ten times

better than you can imagine. These men are called musicians. :D

This one's pretty much over, but there are still 3hrs left to vote!

v An excellent open–source strategy game—highly recommended.
