A simple blue modification of the fantastic BlackMesa visualstyle, which can be found here:


Updated 6/6/2005: Added orange selection boxes for start menu, changed theme name in Appearance preference box to BlueMesa, and dropped saturation on the start button a little.
Updated again 6/6/2005: Fixed single pink pixel on start buttons.
Updated 7/6/2005: Added Tahoma substyles, shrunk start menu button area (Hopefully this fixes problems with French copies of Windows XP too.) Made Logoff button yellow.
Updated 8/6/2005: Fixed description text on start menu (now an attractive blue colour) and modified selection colour a little.

This is the official resource kit for the Black Mesa visual style. Do what you want with it, my only request is that if you use these files in any other VS, skin, or website, you give me credit. No prior permission is required. :)

So if you feel so inclined as to make a wonderful modification to the Black Mesa VS, feel free to use these as you see fit, and release it at will!

This theme has been laying on my hd for years, but I've never actually used it. What a fool I've been! Blue Mesa is both easy on the eyes and refreshing to look at. As a bonus it blends perfectly with Firefox's (version 3.1) Camifox theme. Love it! :+fav:

Amazing theme,Beautiful colors. Love it even tho im usually more into minimalistic themes. But I did find a small bug. When entering a directory with music files a part of the box on the left (Music Tasks) becomes discolored. Would be super if you could fix this. Apart from this, no other bugs found. Excellent job!

A great theme. I enjoy it on 3 laptops. Could you also convert it for WindowsBlinds? A 'glass effect' could bring it to next level of the best themes ever...

A great, simple thing this theme - thank you!!! It makes XP a good looking system...
