*UPDATE* I am making the .exe installer for this pack, and it should be finished soon as soon as I get round to it. I get pretty bored, so you should expect it very soon.
This is the Leopard Transformation Pack for Windows XP and Vista. It is currently Version 1.0 as there will be many future transformation packs to different OSs, in this case Mac OS X Leopard. I made most of the files in this pack and expect no-one to pass them off as their own. Because it's sad - and proves you can't make things. And if you do pass it off as your own, then I will personally shove my computer up your and you will never walk again. Or type, for that matter.
Anyway, it took me quite a while to gather everything to go in the pack and took much modding to make it work perfectly. There are Read Mes all over the pack and if you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to comment and I will reply like a flash of DeviantArt lightning.
The file is called LeoTP1.0 due to being the first Leopard Transformation Pack I have, and probably from having experience from others, probably the best.
Thanks for viewing! And if you want JUST the TrueTransparency style, visit my gallery, you'll find it there!
This Transformation pack is not a self-installing package, it is a *DIY* Zip file. Although it is DIY, it is very easy to install and you'll find Read Mes all over the pack.
Icontweaker - This is a program that will change all icons the ones specified in an IconTweaker pack. In this pack is a collection of icons by ~Anoos. Special credit to this deviant.
Styler Toolbar - You'll need to download this program if you are to make XP have Mac OS X Leopard Toolbar buttons. See the preview image for further details and to see the look.
Leopard Logon - Replace logonui.exe with the one in your system files. Do not actually get rid of the original logonui.exe in your system files, rename it 'logonui.exe.bak' and keep it as a backup in case anything goes wrong. Which it won't. You can trust a Deviant. Right?
Leopard Sounds - Just replace the sounds suitably in your system. For the less experienced users among us, go to Control Panel > Sounds and Audio Devices and replace the sounds from there.
Mac OS-X Cursor Pack - Go to Control Panel > Mouse > Pointer Options and replace the cursors from there.
MSOffice PNG pack - When you figure out how to use Stardock Objectdock (DOWNLOAD IT, IT'S WHAT YOU SEE AS THE DOCK IN THE PREVIEW IMAGE AND IS SPECTACULARLY AWESOME!!) you can replace the regular XP/Vista Office icons with the ones in this folder.
Stardock Fences - You don't really need to put any fences from this program, there's just a hidden gadget in here. It's called 'Hide Icons'. Now, you can do this in XP and Vista, but what you can't do is exclude icons from hiding. So, just rightclick on the 'Macintosh HD' icon and click 'Exclude from Fences Quick Hide'
TrueTransparency - A program that is meant to be used to make windows transparent. I have, however, found another use for it. Because Mac want to be different and put the Maximize, Minimize and Close buttons on the left (they don't even maximize or minimize! ???) it has caused a problem trying to emulate Mac windows on a PC. But, TrueTransparency relies on a data script, meaning that not only can you place the window buttons on the left, you can even place them at the bottom of the window or in the middle of the window itself! Which is not recommended. And you need to be advanced to make a skin .
Visual Style - Before you apply your first visual style, you need a program called UXTheme multipatcher. But that works only for the OS you are using, so I made a better one called XPThemeMod which will allow you to use REAL VISTA VSs! The Visual Style inside is self created, inspired from LeopardXP. Because of reasons which are very rubbish (Mac laws, blah blah blah... can't run Mac on a PC.. blah blah bla--) I cannot put the window buttons in order. A, because if Apple sees this, I'll be ****ed, and B, the minimize button would Maximize. But, because of good reasons, TrueTransparency laws aren't the same.
LeftZong - A self hacked version of LeftSider which isn't so buggy. It will flip the window buttons to the left. Compatible with XP, Vista and 7. Unfortunately, not with Mac.
WallpaperRotator - A self modded wallpaper changer. Nothing to do with Mac-ness, just thought I'd throw it in. Ha. You can't stop me.
