Subtle Start Orb by brsev Subtle Start Orb by brsev
Matches my Token icons. For Windows 7, looks best when 'small icons' is checked and taskbar is at the bottom of the screen.

Pictured here with theWin7 visual style AeroPlain, find it here: [link]

Instructions
-----------------

Option 1: use a resource editor like ResHacker and replace bitmaps 6801, 6805, and 6809 in explorer.exe - look elsewhere for a tutorial, I'm not very good at explaining it.

Option 2: If and ONLY IF you're using Windows 7 RC build 7100 32 bit / x86 version, you can TRY my modified explorer.exe included in the zip - no guarantees.

it's my most favorite orb ever cause i am one of thousand se7en users who use token icons dock taskbar :D it's just the best setup for the superbar.
one question: is it possible to remove these bright lines at the right what match the soft7 vs and keep the flag with animation so i can use it in other visual styles too. the lines don't look that good with small taskbar :( i tried it by myself but i failed, explorer.exe seems not support multi layer bmp files.

Thanks man! If I don't get around to offering a new version in a timely manner, open the channels palette in photoshop and you should be able to see the Alpha channel - black out the lines in the alpha and they won't show.

Hey, love this... I'm using it with the Nude vs and token icons for all my programs (kudos, for those btw) only problem is I'm trying to reshack my 64-bit explorer.exe and it works fine with the included .bmp but when I try to remove the two vertical lines next to the actual flag (sorry, just don't like those)and use the edited .bmp, I get a weird 4 pixel wide black smudge which isn't really what I want... so basically, any ideas how to fix that? :D

It's a four-channel RGBA bitmap, you'll need to edit the alpha channel in photoshop or the gimp.

I'm not sure I understand you - the file is just a bitmap with an alpha channel, you could probably adapt it for anything. But glad to hear it!

Got it! Your icons are the best buddy! I'm using them right now over the whole desktop... Reshacking Apps and Changing System Icons until most everything is "Tokened"!=) I made a personal, and by no means complete by the way, iconpackager theme as well... (with all the filetypes and control panel icons "Tokened" as well...

I'm using it with the SlanXP2 Windows 7 theme and it looks stunning!

Would you be able to give me the bitmaps to change the Explore.exe for 64-bit so I can give it a whack?
Reply
:iconpongster:
pongster Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
Done! Tested it myself and it works... explorer.exe for x64 Windows 7 RTM... lemme know if you want me to forward you a copy of the file so you can upload it in this section of your gallery... (I also changed the explorer icon to the "Token" one included in your icon set=)
