Artist's Note

As requested... ;)

This visual style is a mod of MireV2, so all credits go to asuraci and aakio. Inspiration for the name came from axoncore vs by enspia.

I've included a matching miranda background and a colorpad skin. Due to technical limitations you need to unlock the taskbar in order to have the gradient above it.

To have a shadow like that use programs like Styler or YzShadow (with offset 5), WindowFX should work too.

If you find bugs let me know.

And thanks to akka and MAD for some help.

I am not a fan of to dark vs, I dont see anything, button, where an element ends and begins the other, etc. and get lost, is way to much black for my taste.

Is there any way to make the start panel big? I'm not a fan of compact.

God if only I could somehow fix the contrast for Photoshop, I would use this skin. I was using it earlier, but the black on dark gray for the brushes was really annoying me. I used it for like 2 weeks before I gave up :'(

I freaking love this theme! I just hate the fact that in some areas its black on black, and I can't seem to fix it in just my settings. Any ideas on how to tweak it without downloading a bunch of programs? For instance, when I right click "properties"...that's the black on black that I want to actually be able to read! Otherwise, it would be *perfect.* I've been looking all day for something similar without that problem.

I like the gradient idea, but the hidden window controls and what-not are a deal-breaker for me :(
