Myself and cimi had been discussing it, and I hope we will cooperate in the future...

Anyway, I decided to use Murrine as a base, because it is my favorite engine (and there were only a few things I wanted to change...). If cimi thinks I should not use his work this way, then I will do it in a way both sides will be happy. - Nov 09 2006
Tell me what you need, and I will try to help as much as I can. - Oct 21 2006

here are my benchmarks:
Total time: 23.37
Total time: 28.47

so I don't know why it was slow for you, it seems quite ok here.

anyway, I don't think it is because of the random code. I use a Hashtable for storing the stripes for each button, so it will happen only once. drawing the stripes shouldn't also take so much time.

I guess it's because of the highlights.

BTW, on neither of my machines, I noticed any slownesses. - Oct 20 2006
I wouldn't mind cooperating with you.

How did you check it was slower?
actually, most of the randomizing is done only once. the buttons cache the effects so these would be calculated only once.

Could it be that the gradients I added are the cause of the slowness? - Oct 20 2006

Hi, I'm using Murrine, but I added some of my own stuff :)

It's not that much, only a few gradients. You can see a screenshot here:

I think it helps alot for your eyes, for seperating the window content from its toolbar. Additionaly, I made the menus have some gradients as well:

I really liked the stripes, not noticing you posted it I implemented it myself... :) (ofcouse, yours is nicer). - Oct 09 2006

thank you!

the transparent windows are managed through transset and xcompmgr. you just need the composite extension in xorg.

there are packages for that in ubuntu.

But I use them only for screenshots. It is not fast enough yet.

you can see an explaination here:

first one is for ubuntu (speaks only about xcompmgr) and the second one is for gentoo. the second one has info about transset. - May 12 2005
thank you,

well, I don't have much experience in blender, I made only a couple or more things with it. so thank you for the good critism :)

Perhaps I will update this one, and also post another background from a different angle. - May 12 2005
