Artist's Note

Flying High Glass TT.
This skin is for the application TrueTransparency, version 0.8x or higher.
TrueTransparency skins the window borders, allowing transparent/translucent alpha-blended window borders in XP.

Flying High Glass 2 TT at:

Summary of differences between FHG1 and FHG2:
With FHG1, the alpha-channel (transparency) is even, more opaque on the outside, and more transparent on the inside of each side.
With FHG2, the alpha-channel is variable, emphasizing the opacity of the white clouds; and FHG2 is overall more transparent and glassy than FHG1.

This skin is derived from the photo Flying High by Norif, used with permission, permission in the zip.

Msstyle shown in the screenshot is Xoddx Reverend by WB Skinner, not included.

Thank you.

.msstyles files (XP) do not allow you to have transparent/translucent window borders. Also .msstyles files were not designed to have wide, irregular window borders.
There is a relatively new program called TrueTranparency that allows us to have all these effects that .msstyles files are lacking. TrueTransparency can be downloaded at the following link.

Download and install TrueTransparency. TT has very minimal cpu% and ram usage; and has an exclude file for the few apps that might cause problems.
To use my skin, download and unzip my file. Inside of that folder is a folder(s) called 'Flyng High Glass'. Copy/move the FHG folder(s) into the 'Skin' folder inside of the 'TrueTransparency' folder.
You can use my TT skin with the .msstyle of your choice. I am working on a matching Flying High .msstyle to go with this TT skin.
If any of you have any more questions, don't hesitate to ask. Thank you for your interest in my skin. Sorry that I did not respond sooner, I have been busy.

This is absolutely the best skin I've seen so far, I have your Sunset skin and was praying you would do a clear one that would work with any theme, and you did it! The beauty of the 3D beveled effect is wonderful!

Can you do this for Rainlendar, the way you have the Sunset calendar and matching True Transparency? It would be the perfect match for any wallpaper or background.
