Watercolor Emico Shellstyles by Yggdrasilly Watercolor Emico Shellstyles by Yggdrasilly
UPDATE (1/5/09): It's been a long time, and I feel kind of bad about it, but I've decided to discontinue the production of this shellstyle. I no longer use WindowsXP, so I don't really have an effective way of working on it.

That said, the Olive Style won't be released--sorry to those who use Olive and have been waiting for this.

QUICK NOTE (7/29/08): The Olive Style WILL be released soon. I've been really busy, and there was a death in the family... Expect to see it by the end of the week.

This is a shellstyle Addon Pack for ~Gelosea's Watercolor Emico Visual Style suite. As he's not releasing Shellstyles WITH the actual VS packages, he's opened it up to the community to create them. So, here's my package for the styles released so far.

I will, of course, update this as necessary, when the other colors are released.

These CAN be used with any Visual Style, however they were made for Watercolor, and will look best with it. They also look a little better if you have the Folders Pane open, or use something like FindeXer. [link]

Make sure to grab the styles from ~Gelosea!

Watercolor Emico: Blue [link]
Watercolor Emico: Ergonomic Blue [link]
Watercolor Emico: Black and Washed Black [link]
Watercolor Emico: Silver [link]


How to install:

- Make sure to install the Emico themes first. You don't need all of them, but they're all fantastic.
- Extract the folders in the archive to "C:\WINDOWS\Resources\Themes". The shellstyles will automatically install to the Visual Style folders, assuming you haven't changed the folder names.
- When you select Watercolor Emico as your Visual Style, the shellstyle will automatically apply.


These styles were created by ~Yggdrasilly. Please do not modify, edit, or change the contents. These styles were released with permission by ~Gelosea. Thanks! :D

could you possibly be porting this to windows 7?
Yggdrasilly Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Unfortunately, no. W7 doesn't use the same styling in its windows, so it'd be really tough to do. Moreso because the original Watercolor Emico themes (here:…) were only designed for XP. Sorry!

but wouldn't it be somewhat easier if it was redesigned with the "basic" structure instead of Aero?
Yggdrasilly Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
The other factor is that I no longer use W7 either, nor do I have any of the resources to rebuild this. This was more of a little project I took on when Gelosea was making the visual styles. Sorry, but it's been years since I've touched this project, and... sadly, it's probably just going to stand where it is. :/
