Neptune was the codename for a version of Microsoft Windows under development in 1999. Based on Windows 2000 , it was to replace the Windows 9x series [ 3 ] and was scheduled to be the first consumer version of Windows built on Windows NT code. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_Neptune

I see what you mean now, I hadn't even tried the custom ones yet, disregard my comment about it working.

If you're talking about what I think you are then it shows up just fine in two-column mode for me.

I've done some checking & the only one I've seen for Windows Server 2008 was shown horizontal to the menu, other than that I can't find anything at all so I don't even know if that single image is even correct or not.

Alright, are you using a theme? Because it seems that the 3D border only takes effect with the Windows Classic theme. I'm not sure how to change this.

Looks like that was it, I wasn't using a classic theme at the time when I was testing it.

Do you have the 3D border setting enabled? Because that could be the issue.


Nope, not on & doesn't look right when it is either.

The text on the caption image is often unique & CS doesn't have any font options that I know of that would allow users to imitate the text in the exact way it's seen in the original image so it is necessary to a point. Just something I noticed though, the borders are missing making the menus loo...

I'd say just go for it if you don't mind doing the work.

I've modified the Black & Blue sub-skin to make it a Windows 2000 skin, as soon as I work out a couple of bugs I'd be happy to share it if anyone wants it (also if it's ok with juniper7)

Finally got it after playing around with the image size & Main_bitmap_slices numbers. This would be a lot easier if someone would make a skinning program though :)

I got it, it seems I screwed up one of the numbers which caused the image to not show up.

[edit]

Seems I have 1 problem left, the image is getting stretched a few pixels & I'm not sure how to fix that.

Ok, I'm starting to get the hang of this a little more but I'm still having a few issues. I realized I forgot the border part in the image so I've got that covered now I'm just not sure what I need to edit next, the skin I'm using has more than 1 style & the Main_bitmap_slices section isn't in t...

The problem is I'm still not exactly sure how it all works. Here's what I'm trying to to:

165.bmp is the current image, Bitmap_157.bmp is what I'm trying to replace it with.

Now, when I try to replace the smaller image with the larger one, I get what you see in menu.png

I suppose so, I guess I was thinking of something else. From what I was able to work out so far is that the images used for the captions are small, I was meaning to use larger images but I wasn't sure if it was possible. You can just delete the topic, I think it's in the wrong place for what I'm thi...

I'm not sure if this has been requested before but I'd like to see the ability to use images for captions, kind of like what TClock does.

I used to use this all the time back on 9x versions of Windows to change the start menu image to another version of Windows.

Installed in Windows 10 TP & ran into the same issue with the taskbar icons being hidden behind the Find/Task view icons but for me it only happens when replacing the start button.

Using the 3D orb (metro12.png), looks nice with the style I'm using. I did the same with the 3D one that you did to the other, if anyone wants it I could attach it.
