Royale Vista WB by dobee Royale Vista WB by dobee
Royale Vista 1.1
for WindowBlinds 5

A port of my XP visual style
Originally inspired by modding XP's Royale Theme to be more like Vista,
but progressed into a more minimal theme with elements of vista

Update 1.1
Fixed control panel bug
Startmenu item selection fixed
Vista glass anti-aliased(still a W.I.P)

Extract the zip file first don't try to load it,
The .wba files have been zipped along with samurize scripts

I have not added shadows in this release but there will be in the next release for sure

3 styles Vista XtaC, Royale Vista and Royale Vista Glass
Semi-transparent titlebar for Royale Vista style
Window Transparency button for XtaC style
Samurize scripts in screenshot included

Styler toolbar theme

Vista Iconpack theme for Icontweaker

Wallpaper in preview

ULTRA- Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2006
Tanks for sharing this great VS!
Question: Is there a matching skin for Winamp?
MrSteveSomeone Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2006
Absolutely love this theme but the only thing stoppin' me from using is the fact that the file options and such are at the top. Don't know the tech name for it. I like 'em better at the left. Anyway to change this?
Cjeep Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2006
Does anyone know how you can modify the "View as a slide show/Order prints online/Print Picture/Copy all items to CS" like Dobbe has done?

wupsii Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2006
OMG.. its soo awesome :clap::D
motopillar Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2006
There"s no doubt this is a masterpiece and you're the true ARTIST!
Is your next one around the corner? I just can"t wait!!
JimmyBurke Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2006
What exactly are you using for your clock and looks like your music skin? They look really cool and I would like to know where you got them.
fenixartzz Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2006
Can you please make one with vertical shellstyle as is more practical then this one !
Belldandirah Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2006
Smooth, sleek, minimal and classy.
Even on the public version of windowblinds, it's perfect.

I'll be using this one for a long while. Thanks for your creation. <3

grrr this is really annoying me, i love this blind but i dont know how to put it on my laptop :( ive downlaoded it and extracted but do i need to downlaod a programme for it to actually go on my comp?

please reply mate :)
Skoulikimou Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2006
how do i work this out

cheers mate :)
blodkjeft Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2006
Of course i was wrong. The double click to exit-problem persists, but not with windows explorer / IE. All other applications seems to maximize / minimize instead of closing when hitting upper left corners.
blodkjeft Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2006
Hi there, dobee, i really like this wb-theme. But it has one problem; you can't double click in the top left corner to close programs any more! Any ideas on how that could be fixed? Oh, that problem only goes for the Glass-version I just found out.
Shuuya13 Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2006
a favorite theme of mine. keep it up.
salimma Featured By Owner May 22, 2006
Great-looking style, integrates really well with the new WMP11 beta (well, the title bar could be slightly larger, and the highlight colour a darker blue, but that's about it)
pmafia Featured By Owner May 15, 2006
My favorite skin by far! Finally a skin that is solid, smooth and stylish. Very nice! Would like a version with transperant menu's, and possibly when you move your mouse over the start menu windows logo, for it to change colour or glow? Anyways amazing work! Favorite theme by far!
LeonAu Featured By Owner May 13, 2006   Interface Designer
Hi, I'm really looking forward to the update you spoke of :) Could you please add built in shadows in your next update as well? They would really make your WB5 skin stand out. Thanks again.
milanioom Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2006  Hobbyist Interface Designer
this is extremly great :star: :star: :star: :star: :star:
amazingpat Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2006
A cool skin. Dobee, I noticed that the transparency of the active window is different from that of an inactive window. In case of an active window, the borders around the window are transparent; however they are much much darker than in the case of an inactive window.

Is it possible to switch this ??
atomicpinkgoth Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2006  Hobbyist Artist
Kudos kudos kudos and Congratulations! Microsoft could learn volumes from you, with the XtaC I think you may have created the PERFECT inerface. my only bug is that when I use photoshop or another program that gets double caption buttons, the inner set go magenta "magic pink".. aside from that I dont think I'll have reason to ever change my visual style again... all I can hope for now is a matching YzDock/AquaDock background...

Absolutely Gorgeous and Perfect for LATE night computing...
dtbsz Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2006  Hobbyist Artist
nice.... any plans about makin' a VS version?
dtbsz Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2006  Hobbyist Artist
sorry sorry.... my bad... i didn't say sh*t.... :( it's 12:37 pm i'm kinda tired....
jfl Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2006
I want to underline that your skins are really beautiful!
There are two problems however:
- The selection of the icons of the toolbar of I.E. is not complete.
- The "control panel", in Windows XP, doesn't work if you use the visualization for categories.

WindiwBlinds 5.01.
