I am trying to make a mod of Void, and the title bar is really messing me up. All I want to do is place a texture across the top of the title bar. In carbon, the preview looks ok, but in cocoa, it it doesn't scale down. this is what I want to achieve.

I think the way you would accomplish this effect would be to make the titlebar graphics like 2000 or more pixels wide. Make it tile too.

Actually, you could have the main part of this titlebar (as shown in your post) in the center of the 2000 pixel image, leaving light blue on one side and yellow on the other. This could produce some interesting effects.

Are you going to mod the widgets too? Making them the dots instead of the rounded squares of VOID?

PM me if you get this to work. I would like to make it too. Remember, no releasing VOID or other Garrett V themes.

Never mind... I have it completed. Looks EXACTLY like the screenshot above using the technique I described. It is wonderful!
