It looks like you either didn't use 32-bit bmp images, changed the image resolution(s), or both.
The easiest way to tell if you followed the steps correctly is to check the file size. The file size will be EXACTLY the same as the original (down to the last byte).
Try this .dll and tell me if it works: sta.sh/02cb3tvuskah
What you need:
- Resource Hacker
If Windows 8.1 is anything like go to:
- Copy the basebrd.dll to another non-system folder for editing purposes.
- Right-click on it and select "Take Ownership/Restore Rights"
- Right-click and open in Resource Hacker
Under Bitmap are several folders with number names. The folders with files you will need to change should be called 120, 1120, and 2120. Remember these are the folder names, not the image names.
- The image under 120 MUST be exactly 350x50 pixels in size
- The image under 1120 MUST be exactly 438x64 pixels in size
- The image under 2120 MUST be exactly 525x75 pixels in size
Important: Save these as 32-Bit PNGs (or 32-bit BMPs if supported), else it won't work. If you saved them as 32-bit PNGs, you will need to use AlphaConv and change them to 32-bit BMP images before using them in the .dll file.
I recommend for the two larger sizes you simply increase the canvas size of the smaller one, doing that worked well for me anyway.
Now that you have your images ready:
- Go back to Resource Hacker
- Click on the Action tab and select "Replace Bitmap ..."
- Replace 120, 1120, and 2120 with your own 32-bit BMP images, remember that they must be the same resolution and bit depth as the originals for this to work!
- Under File select Save and close Resource Hacker
- For Installation and Uninstallation refer to the guides in the description.
If all goes well that will do it!
Hope that helps!
