WOW! Awesome job on this one. The design is great. The color is very rich and the metal trim just gives this the finishing touch. I hope you would consider doing a color pack and Rainys to match?

These do look great but I did have a question. When I import them into sysmetrix they just replace one another all of the colors don't list in it seperately. I want all of them to show up in the themes list. I know it's something I am doing just can't figure it out. Suggestions anyone? Thanks because I really want to see how good all of them look.

not sure on that i'm afraid

No you haven't lost your mind. It's because each of the colors uses the same name reference "New Age" within the SysMetrix.ini file, and the background images and previews are all named "New Age.bmp" and "New Age_preview.bmp". Sysmetrix just overwrites the previous directory. I don't know why the other folks haven't had a problem with it.

If you want to fool with it, you can import one, let's say Red, into Sysmetrix. Then exit the Sysmetrix configuration. Then rename the theme directory it creates from "New Age" to say "New Age Red". Then rename the 2 .bmp files I mentioned above from "New Age"(etc) to "New Age Red" (etc). Then edit Sysmetrix.ini with ObjectEdit or Windows Editor to replace the words "New Age" on line 3 and line 148 with "New Age Orange", and save the file.

Then do it all over again for the next one. It's a little tedious but I'm sitting here doing it. A guy's gotta have a hobby, right? LOL

They really are nice though.

Oracle73, an additional note:

I'd done a couple of them and the Sysmetrix.ini lines had been 3 and 148, and I figured they were all the same. I'm doing the blue one now and I see that it has the reference on line 264 instead of 148, so I guess it's not always going to be the same lines. Anyway you get the idea - there are 2 "New Age"s in there to edit in each sysmetrix.ini file. And by the way, you do want to be consistent with all the renaming within each theme, you don't want to use "New Age Red" and then "NewAgeRed" for example.

Thanks for the help DaveRI. That will be a pain, but don't have anything else to do.

I just downloaded then yesterday and when I looked today, just the blue was there. I was wondering what was wrong that is why I am back. Thanks DaveRI, they are pretty good instructions..except the New Age Orange in the Red file. Is that correct.
