Lcars New Evolution +UPDATED+ by Flack-Jacket Lcars New Evolution +UPDATED+ by Flack-Jacket
UPDATED ! 7/6/2006

I finally got around to adding the promised Admin Terminal. The new terminal contains the functions you would normally find under "Administrative Tools" in your programs menu but is now set to a terminal resembling engine room settings. Of course there are sounds to go with the functions and mouse-over effects. You will just have to see it to understand.

I also moved a few things around in the rest of the theme... not much but added many sounds appropriate with the functions they are attached to.

I added (by request) the ability to turn on/off all animations on each terminal screen to aid those with the weaker processors or lack of ram.

Enjoy the updates and maybe someday I will get that Windowblinds theme to match done as well.

Enjoy everything.




I am not the original author of this theme.

Thanks must go to Adam Solley for the original graphics. [link]

Thanks definately go to Alpha-Omega as the author of this theme I modified. Permissions are listed in the permissions eml txt file (along with permission from MikeB314) included within the theme. Alpha-Omega --> [link]

The matching logon theme can be found here --> [link]

This modification of a fantastic theme by Alpha-Omega now has 6 terminal screens.
All links in the Sub-Menus are text links and very easily changed to suit your applications and needs etc.
The Media Player Terminal has been totally redesigned with all new graphics(Courtesy of Adam Solley).
The Spectrum animation can be toggled on or off.
Also the Top and Bottom Bars have been lightened for a better look.

Okay... As you can see by the screenshot there are 6 terminals.

First - The Main Terminal, which gives you access to the 5 other terminals, all with appropriate animations and sound effects has been upgraded to include two more buttons accessing the two additional terminal screens from the original version.

Second - The Programs Terminal, where you access all favorite programs from the new Menu Systems and folders, including drives has had some changes to the mouse-over texting in the pop-up menus. All links are text based and are easily changed.

Third - The brand new control panel replacement terminal has buttons to replace all of your control panel icons and utilizes some pretty cool mouse-over popups for each of them. Hard to explain... you will just have to see. There are no modifications needed on your part for this terminal to work right out of the box with exception of the nvidia button unless you use that too.

Fourth - The brand new diagnostic terminal allows you to do level 1 - level 5 diagnostics which actually are Defrag - System Restore - Disc CLeanup - MS COnfig and Registry Editor. Also utilizing some fairly cool mouse-over effects. There are no modifications needed on your part for this terminal to work right out of the box.

Fifth - Is the Media Player. This is fantastic work and received no changes from me. Don't fix it if it ain't broke :)

Last but not least, The Shutdown Terminal. This screen gives you the options to Shutdown, Reboot, Log-off or Cancel and return to the main terminal and has some new voice sounds to go with the theme.

No matter which terminal is accessed a Topbar and Bottombar are always visible, which include a System Tray, Taskbar, System CPU and RAM Meters. The ACCESS text (start menu access) and the words in the topbar have been removed to prevent monitor screen burning.

You will definately need to update many links to work on your computer just like any other theme you would download.

I have included a fairly complete sound scheme for you to enjoy, it is inside the theme file. You will need to rename the file to a .zip to retrieve it. I trust you know how to impliment that.

The LCARS font included is of course critical and included in the file as well.

This theme works amazing if you have a multi-monitor setup because you can set all but the main terminals to open on the other monitor and always have access tot he main.

I apologize that this theme is only in 1280x1024 but I use it on dual 19 inch Samsung LCD monitors and it is best as is.

If you want the complete Trek experience, get a sweet little prog called Audiomatic from WiseRiddles and you will be able to talk to your computer and it will act. I use it and it workd great.

The next update will include a brand new terminal to access all of the computer Administrative Functions. (comming soon).

Enjoy.

Hey man, love the theme! I'm using it for my desktop. But could you scale it down to 1024x768 for use on older laptops?

That'd be great!

This is very awesome, i love star trek and i love this lcars skin.
But i have a notebook with a resulotion of 1280*800 so can't use it.

well done.
I love this and I am using now.

Very easy to use(once you get use to it). And the sounds are great.

I have a WB skin to go with it. I found on wincustomize, but you have to use the colour change in WB to get it to match.

Great work.

Hi!!! U are one of very few people left that actually do something to bring the star trek universe to our home :) I love the them but I can't use it becouse the resoulution. That's no problem since i use one of ur earlier versions which by the way could be updated with all the modification u integreted into this theme :) But still major thing is missing which is wb theme - there are few - less then 5 I believe and all of them are really old and none really matches ur themes. So I hope u will finaly relaese even somethig in beta of even alpha stage - this is what we all - trekkies would love to see :) Hope u will get anough time and strengh to carry out this outstanding project :) So good luck and u know - live long and prosperr ;) =/\=

No need to unzip it. Rename the file from .zip to .dxtheme and you will be able to install it with DesktopX easy as pie.
