Encoded WB by PixelPirate Encoded WB by PixelPirate
This was started back in the WB 4.3 days I think. It was the 4th WB skin I begun, but as some of you may know, I've made several after that. This one's been with me a long time, and now it's finally done.

I've remade the skin 3 times because it wasn't living up to my expectations. Without a doubt this one's been in the works for about a year.

The original idea was to have an organic/mechanic WB skin. So it got some of that in the form of wires and a brain.

This is also one of the more interesting skins I've done in terms of animations and sounds. Each titlebar button have a sound attached, the close sound being the most remarkable ;)

It's got animated push buttons, animated start button (yes - they bounce up and down) and animated start menu.

Of course animated Throbber, toolbar icons, progress animations, custom UIfiles to change the text and colors of the special task pane and control panel, right-click roll-up.

The three tiny buttons on the lower right are start screensaver, make window transparent and send to tray.

The wallpaper is included in the skin file and comes in 1600x1200 and 1280x1024 resolutions.

Because of the animations and the included wallpapers, the file is a bit large.

Encoded WB by *PixelPirate is one beautiful WindowBlinds skin that will surely make your computing experience that much more fluid. The complete package that has been put together shows that much time was taken in order to craft this lovely interface. ( Suggested by shockerteam3d and Featured by jark )

One of the best blinds to Date !!! this is A MUST HAVE...
If you think about it, this is 5 years old by now and still this easylee can compete with some skins out of 2010 and even brings some of them back into the dark corner so they dont get sun burned by this bright well overthought Encoded shine!
Still silently waiting for more... and please do something like this one more time ! If you find the time
YY- Danilloc- and You made some of the best skins out to this very day i realy miss seeing some more stunning work of you three

Woohoo DD! :D

Thank you all for the comments :)

I included the wallpaper in the skin, so it's in the skin folder on your harddrive. You'll find that in your WindowBlinds installation folder, most likely here: C:\Program Files\Stardock\Object Desktop\WindowBlinds\Encoded

The wallpapers are called Encoded_1280x1024.jpg and Encoded_1600x1200.jpg.
