View Full Version : Making a Custom Start Orb

I am Using Photoshop making a custom start orb, I was wondering what the general effect done to the start orb when the start menu is open? It's based off the alienware start orb from the Deathstar Theme by MR. GRiM.

If your wanting to use this with theme resource changer instead of a using a separate app to change the start orb. You need to make 3 sets of the start orbs in png format with a transparent background and place them in your current theme folder. Name them 6801, 6805, 6809 and place them in the folder named Explorer.exe inside the theme folder you plan on using.

c:/windows/resources/themes/(what ever the name of the theme your going to use)/Explorer.exe

Thanks seems to work fine in Deathstar, Poison Red, but not HUD Red.

EDIT: I got confused with names and got it to work check it out.

Probably something like "outer glow" is a general effect that would be used. Like this:
