    It seems that the copy of the zip file Aston has broken somewhere along the way.
    Please download from here until I can get this corrected:

    Have uploaded an updated version of this with better constructed .ANK files and directory structure.
    Just waiting for the Aston guys to upload it.

    I wish you had included a tutorial on how to install it, cuz I'm stumped. It looks cool and I wanna use it, but I have no earthly idea how.

    It's a suite of desktop objects/icons.
    To 'install' it you:
    -Right click on the desktop
    -Click New
    -Click on the >> button next to the First Icon box and browse for the .ank file of the object you want to add.
    I'd advise adding the dock first and then adding the other objects on top of it after.
    Position each object as you desire.
    To save the position you might want to save a new copy of your current theme after getting everything in position.
    Hope that's covered it for you.
    Mike

    Excellent replacement for the non-ObjectDock/non-Y'zDock/non-MobyDock crowd. The graphics are incredibly rendered. Do you do other icon work?

    I've made a few themes (see the themes section) and a few other icons in this section (under the name Emdee or Mike Dixson).

    Thanks :-D

    I created them entirely in vectors using Paint Shop Pro. I presently use version 8 but version 9 is out now.

    I had to delete the path in the ank files in order to get the animations. ex.:

    FILE=D:\Documents\Images\Art\Aston\Maqua\animworkings\w3browser\w3.png
    changed to
    FILE=w3.png

    works now, looks very clean, great work

    Make sure you point to the .ANK file not to the image itself.

    The three images you see are the three phases/frames in the animation.

    Be aware, that you have to modify the .ank file before adding the anks in the object dock or desktop cuz it points to
    FILE=D:\Documents\Images\Art\Aston\Maqua\animworkings\Envelope - email\email.png
    you have to change each FILE= to
    FILE=email.png in the email ank, do that in each ank and voila every will be correct

    Great work! This is probably a newbie qustion, but I cannot get the dock to stay behind the icons -- how can I adjust its Z position? Thanks!

    Nevermind, I got it! In case anyone else has the same problem, just Right Click and Set it as a Theme Object (Obsolete). Thanks again!
