Wouldn't it work to have transparency on the Windows minimize/maximize buttons?
I did use transparency. You should be able to see the storm clouds background through them.
The background should become opaque on highlight.
In this skin I notice the same issue I encountered (and raised) in the past that prevented me from doing some stuff I had wanted to do:
When the text scrolls, the text has no transparent background, but a part of the background image scrolls along with it.
Yeah, I'm aware of that too.
I let it go in this one as the text area is quite wide so I thought it would only impact on some long classical titles.
I've also noticed that when you change from Progress Bar to Wave Bar you get a lighter patch in the background where the text existed before the switch. A quick restart of MB fixes that one.
