Here is the new drawingboard theme based on the MacOS 9 theme.

Its icons are now PNGs instead of OS/2 icons.  I had to recreate lots of icons.  The icons now look good at even the larger viewing sizes.

Tried to give the program folder icons more of an earlier time look to go with the theme.

Only added a few program PNGs to the theme.  I figured the OS/2 program icons go more with this theme.  The ones I replaced either did not have an icon or the OS/2 icons looked bad at the larger viewing sizes.

Added a little cog to the setup folder icons to let people know these icons are for making system changes.

Theme contains subfolders which contain background, button, and titlebar bmps which will have to be manually copied to the appropriate folders. 

backgrounds  bmps to      > drive:\os2\bitmap
button to                               > drive:\sys\apps\styler\bitmap\button
tbkggnds to                          >drive:\sys\apps\styler\bitmap\tbkgnds

Everyone's evil villainous weasel now peeks out of trashcan to full spying on you.

What is needed to extract icons from dll files?   There was one theme I did in 2009, but can not not locate the icons anymore.  It was another very unusual theme, stick figures.

I'd just like to comment:

I bought eComstation 2.1 before some couple of years before ArcaOS. When I eventually got ArcaOS, the first thing I did was migrate eSchemes and a few other programs that came with ECS - although if I recall correctly, it's called ThemeMGR in the installation files. For any who may be curious, it's worked perfectly for me across multiple releases of 5.0.x and now 5.1.

What were your steps to migrate eSchemes from eCS to ArcaOS?

See the above pics.

I have uploaded the Umicons bigicons theme. 

Umicons was created 15 years ago and last updated 4 years ago.
Original icons were created by  circa 2003

Most of these icons I modified or created to work with our schemes.

I did not change all the system icons.  What little  I did was a huge undertaking.

An update on the umicons theme.  A lot of work . having to modify or make new icons for everything.

Martin, I think that was for Warp 3 which might explain odd results if you are running it on Warp 4 or its derivative.
I believe desktop wizard expanded the screen to something bigger than what you could actually see.

I am playing around with an old Linux theme called Umicoms to see if is possible to convert to an Arcaos theme.  I may never finish, but time will tell. Do to the darker colors, it would probably need to be run at larger png size.

I call this new theme Shades of Color.

This is probably it for themes unless I get another wild idea.  I believe people have plenty of choices now.  Again I thank Rich for suggesting I look at the bigicons.  When I get time, I may package up the remaining options icons.  Time for a a break for a few days.

A new theme called Neon Draw.  Similar to the Draw theme, but is multicolored.

I agree with you. No one else has stated that Firefox or seamonkey was crashing for no apparent reason. As stated earlier, it could depend on the hardware.  I have installed ArcaOS multiple times on my laptop, and every time after,  Firefox would start crashing for no apparent reason. I was having to go to windows more often for internet.  It has only been two days, but so far no crashes.  I will continue to see what happens.  I need to see what happens in the next weeks.  I would say this is a tip for anyone that might be having the same problem to try.

What you are saying is that this programmer did not have all his facts straight.  This patch that I applied said it was for Warp version.  So, is this patch ignored after it is applied by Warp and later?

I tried to update my NeoWPS registration from Mensys.  Everytime it said an email was sent, I never received it.  I beginning to wonder if the US government is blocking it.  Buying software from Russia is becoming impossible.

If you think there is an issue and you reproduce this on one machine you have with the ArcaOS kernel loaded open a ticket via
Attach a testlog and describe how you can reproduce a hang.

Hi Roderick

For me, Firefox would always crash and I would have to restart it.  Moving that statement to the startup.cmd and keeping my fingers crossed, it has not crashed in two days.  Before, it was all the time.  On two partitions, not one crash so far.
