The menu extras I posted below are PPC for anyone who's wondering...

I will address these issues in future updates, as they are ready. YOU are responsible for YOUR files, I cannot post, nor should you download anyone else's files, for they may not be compatible with your system. These files vary greatly with each system as they are installed onto your system, i.e. Intel vs. PPC, they are different files all together. Thanks for your feedback.

I have uploaded an original copy of each menu extra this package replaces @ http://www.box.net/shared/dkqap0ozsh for those who have lost or accidentally deleted their originals.

Would love to see a colorful VPN replacement in the next release... ;)

Keep up the great work!

nice nice... I like the green battery since its more "mac" than the original, and the Airport icon.

But you should have one battery icon for "connected power supply"

cheers
and thank you for these pretty little things.

WAIT! I fixed it.

Download these scripts instead. There's an installer and an uninstaller. You need the disk image to be mounted on the desktop for it to work.

Yeah, sure. After I re-uploaded it I though of some other ways I could improve it.

And yes MU, I should have but I'm too impulsive.

Anyway, you can contact me via my blog (http://neonblue2.blogspot.com/), my email (semaj91@bigpond.com) or my Motion JWii MU page (http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/24670/motion-jwii)

I've made a shell script that can backup the default icons and install the custom one automatically.

To the dev; you're free to include this in the download. Some editing of the code will be required in future versions but it's easy to work out.

cceiling_fan had trouble on 30 Sep 2007
This is a great piece of eye candy for my mac. Since I am into eye candy, I use ShapeShifter. Unfortunately ShapeShifter defaults these icons when a theme is applied. The default Aqua works fine though. Can anybody point me in the right direction on how to fix this? Thanks

From the developer, in the post directly below yours:

"YOU are responsible for YOUR files, I cannot post, nor should you download anyone else's files, for they may not be compatible with your system. These files vary greatly with each system as they are installed onto your system... "

Pretty indeed but now my Airport Menu does not work. That is, clicking on the new pretty icon does nothing.

PPC versions have know issues, restore your backup, and try again.

It would be nice to know what these known issues are? No way I'm wasting more time to simply get the same result. Funny but the Bluetooth.menu worked, Airport.menu didn't. Oh and you spelt Volume wrong!

Enough with the attitude, these are free, it you don't like them, don't use them.

Have a beer.
