Critique by Bongaboi Nov 17, 2010, 5:35:32 PM
"I'm a PC, and Windows 7 was my idea." Such is the nature of the current incarnation of Microsoft Windows, the incarnation we know as Windows 7. For a time, I was content with using the previous incarnation of the OS, known far and wide as Windows Vista. But later on, in comes this new version that has become accepted far and wide as a relevant OS, just like the predecessor before that and the predecessor before that and the predecessor before that. There is something about Microsoft Windows that makes you say: this is what computing is all about.

That being said, I like the tool that you brought out here on deviantART. Now users will get to customize their own start orbs and have fun with it. I can't wait to use this baby. Five stars across. This was badly due.
What do you think?

this is a brilliant tool. Microsoft will do all they can to make the UI better, and yet it is the ability to customize the interface with tools like these that make it the best.

This tool is also extremely easy to use, and so it needs almost no input from a developer for users to be able to work it, which is more than can be said for some tools.

The program itself has an intuitive UI , and the wide vareity of options included lets individual users change the start orb in whatever way they want. Keep up the good work, Kishan Bagaria!

When I try to change my orb, it does this for both bmp and png: demonicpandax.deviantart.com/a… (and as you can see, the taskbar also disappeared, i had to run "explorer" as a new task to get it back)
I made my own orbs, but I used PaintTool SAI to make them. Is Photoshop required to making a custom orb? And how do I fix this?

The orbs which you made don't have proper transparency.

Ah, thank you! The button creator really helped. Now I don't have to worry about wasting another 4 hours just to make another one, haha.

For some reason, it just doesn't work. I tried changing the explorer.exe security options, running as administrator, killing explorer.exe task, but it never works.
