Aero v2 skin for miranda by fediaFedia Aero v2 skin for miranda by fediaFedia
Update!

Add rounded edges version (from win7)
Added mouseover effect

Miranda is EXTREMELY HARD TO CONFIGURE, I had to spend a WHOLE lot of time before i configured it to perfection

You need CLIST MODERN for this to work!: [link]

Follow the screenshots to make your miranda look exactly like on the preview, to enable aero glass go to Conntact list, Window tab and click enable aero glass (Vista)

A very simple aero skin for miranda in tool window style

The blur and colorization will work only in vista and seven with aero enabled!

Copy skin folder to C:\Program Files\Miranda IM\Skins, open options, customize, contact list skin and browse to this skin.

If you're new to miranda take the time to study my Configuration images I included.


Thanks to balderoine for the help

Comments are welcome!

P.S. On XP and vista\seven without aero it will look like this: [link]

Great!!!
How this is done with the technical side?
Is it possible to do so, what would it look like a window "in focus" (more saturated).

P.S. Sorry for my english.

Well it uses a skinning engine, and no you can't have a "focused' state with this...

I agree. Miranda IM is an absolute bitch to configure (Took me around 4 hours to get adium eclipse just to work).

Anyways, this is awesome. :]
(My deprivation of transparency makes me use it where I can. :D)

Miranda is very hard to configure, but once you configure and know how it works - its a IM of dreams

"Enable Aero Glass (Vista)" isn't there?

That's ugly for use with a skin and it's 3D, looks nothing like vista or has any resemblance whatsoever. My skin is to look like aero.

Иногда красота пытается победить юзабилити... :) Вариант по ссылке более удобен в эксплуатации, чем чистый аэро-вариант, как мне кажется. Хотя и твои работы я очень уважаю, слежу уже очень давно за твоей галереей.
