I love this theme, I'm currently using the black one and there's on particular font that doesn't seem to be set right for it. There's a set that's set to black and it's really hard to there a way to change that?

Here's a screenshot

Would it be possible to mail me the Miranda IM skin?
Obdemnium Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2010
The AMANA design is maybe the most breathtaking theme I've ever seen, and I would really like to use it, but is it available for Windows 7 anywhere?
Is the AMANA project out of date, or is it still going?
Any plans on releasing anything new or just updates?
romeooh Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2010

It would be nice to get this ported for Windows 7 somehow.. I have been using this in conjunction with Folter-X True Transparency skin for some time now for Windows XP SP3.. and can't really find anything for when I upgrade the system, which is sort of waiting on finding something..

Do you have any plans or ideas for creating anything for Windows 7 this or upcoming?

PLEASE reupload.
imrik Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2008  Professional Interface Designer
Doesn´t it work? Or why do you want me to reupload it?
Ma013a Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2008  Student Artist
The download link directs to a blank page.
It has probably expired (happens often with .zip files).
Thank you in advance.
Quenco Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2008

Beriadon Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2008
Compatible with Vista?
JustHumba Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2008
How could I use the WHITE PMD message window?
And so far as possible without the AMANA08 Contact List Skin :)

I do not find a clue how to do :/

robinism Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2008
this is a gorgeous theme but i have no clue as to how to install it LOL
Curiculinair Featured By Owner May 1, 2008
I'm from Holland, and when I see the startmenu, in the taskbar it says: 'Start Menu" with the icon from Amana. In the screenshot there's only the amana-icon with Menu. Why do I also have the word Start?

Can you tell me how to edit this?
flea-dom Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2008
I really really wish the handles on scrollbars were more visible, I love this VS, and i keep switching back to it, but unless you're in a dark room, with the brightness turned up, the scroll handles are all but invisible. Thats my only gripe, but unfortunately it seriously affects usability.

Maybe a highlight around the little black oval, or something to increase the contrast between the black and dark grey of the scrollbar.
jQuan Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2008  Hobbyist Interface Designer
love this VS, is the most minimalistic theme that I ever seen! nice work
axcy Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2008  Professional Digital Artist
Such a great VS... almost makes me want to use Windows. Haha.
teheimar Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2008  Hobbyist Photographer
Wow, looks nice. Unfortunately I run vista 64 nowadays so I can't use it. And with WB5 and XP skins it's just taking a lot of resources and still bugging out most of the time.
I agree with freedon77 about Visual Styles. Most fo them are not fully compatible with either the OS or the applications. Also there is a large gap between readability, design and to much or too little contrast that disturbs the perceptual color correctness on the screen.
Still looks like a solid piece of work and a good idea.
Btw, what happened to Whistler and Heylove, and all your old work? Are they like not in the game anymore? I used Nano VS for ages and kept coming back to it for it has been the best VS overall so far together with the Milk series from Lennard and Kol.
freedom77 Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2008
Thanks for taken in my rant :P

great work, again!
freedom77 Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2008

I really love the design of this VS, But as with alot of Visual Styles, there's alot of issues when using the theme through out Windows and with other apps. Things like the address bar get distorted and don't look right.

Hell the scroll are near impossible to see half the time, as well as some of the text colours which I have altered.

But DAMN I really wish the VS designers would try and work on something that would be as compatible with xp as it can possibly be. so all one has to do it apply it and bam!

But styles like this, and the ones you see in such customized screenshots, require ALOT of work to fit in and not be all inconsistent. And if I went to all the trouble I'd be sick of the theme once I'd finished....

80% of visual styles just aren't usable...

imrik Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2008  Professional Interface Designer
Thank you for the feedback. That´s really good to get some more detailed informations from users ;)

I agree with most of your arguments. And i am totally on your side. The point is we try to make our Suites as usable as possible. As for now i don´t know about any application that is able to apply the customization at once. And now i am on a Mac i only do the interface design and can´t test the themes too much. But i hear you and understand your critique. Tell those who do the custoapplications ;)
