This style/theme is dedicated to the memory of Maria I. Garcia, known to us all as Marvilla, one of the best artists this community has ever known. Maria passed away last November due to health complications. I had the pleasure and honor knowing her and collaborating with her in a number of themes. More than a gifted artist, Maria was a warm and caring person, wife of another gifted programmer/artist, Rudy Spurlin, of [link]
Being away for so many years, I realized Maria was no longer with us when I tried to contact her in order to ask her permission to use (again) some of her Pastels set of icons. I was shocked. Rudy was kind enough to let me use the icons and I thank him and I stand by him in this difficult period of his life. Visit [link]
to have a look at the wonderful art of Marvilla and download the rest of the Pastels set.
WALLPAPER, BLACKBOX BUILD, BBLEANSKIN, BBINTERFACE and ICONS included.
The wallpaper is "Butterflies" by takacica [link]
with her permission. Takacica resized her original wall for this theme and I thank her for her time and effort. The icons are Pastel by Marvilla [link] [link]
used with the permission of her husband. The build of Blackbox (BBLeanMod) is by nocd5 [link]
included with his permission.
After replacing your older Blackbox build with this one, and your older bbleanskin.dll/bbinterface.dll/bbinterface.rc with the ones provided in the zip file, restart. I have included the wharf with icons in only one drawer (this may serve as a template to fill the rest of the drawers which are just empty frames. After all, you have to include your own applications, not mine. The procedure is easy once you ctrl+right click on each element). The wallpaper should be put in C:\Wallpaper2 and the icons in c:\icons\pastels. Please note me for more instructions.
If you want to learn more about Blackbox, I suggest you read my tutorials:[link]
tutorial part I - the shell[link]
tutorial part II - the plugins[link]
tutorial part III - the styles
They are prettty much outdated by now (I MUST find time to bring them up to date... lol) but they will give you a general idea.
And, of course, feel free to ask if you need more info or instructions
