Personally, I've been using this exact same theme ever since Dusty first posted it and never looked back.

Here you go.

I think people SHOULD be able to choose more cartoony themes, in fact isn't that why we have the option? But I think it would be in Graal's best interest to offer a more OS-like theme by default and package a few varieties with Graal instead of just a single very stylistic one that is very vulnerable to taste.

Personally I think Graal should get its own tailor made theme. It's just getting someone to make it really.

I think it is of extreme importance to get a good non-wba design for the login screen, and possibly even the serverlist.

Dusty's WBA blends in with OS themes and doesn't look too bad in that respect, but I think it looks god-awful for making the game look appealing and fun. The WBA makes the login screen look like a login for a spreadsheet corporate application.


In summary, I'm saying that we should definitely consider that WBA for external windows, but try and find something better/more interesting for the 'first impressions' that people get of the game (like the login screen). I imagine this may require moving away from WBAs or getting a custom one made for Graal.

Stefan, would it be possible to have options for two separate default themes? One for external windows and one for internal? I ask this because while some themes benefit external windows(by having a theme tailored to making external windows feel like part of the OS), it doesn't exactly benefit internal windows where OS themed windows feel out of place.

I would love this.

Some themes look amazing as external, but the borders of the internal windows are just so damn ugly.

Theoretically any window can use a different gui style in v6, so it wouldn't be a problem to use different themes for internal and external windows.

Ohh, then operating system default for external windows (playerlist, options, etc) and some nice pretty theme for ingame. :-) personally i'll just use blue gui ingame but would be excellent to have windows default on external.

Ok modified the vista blue theme, stripped some unneeded stuff etc. and uploaded to the login server for testing. You can select "VPlusBlue" as GUI style in the options. Please tell me if it's fine or needs some improvements.
