I have created a skin manager for ViOrb using Visual Basic.NET and the .NET Framework 2.0. This will manage your ViOrb skins in a skin folder. Just create a skins folder and fill it with flag files. Each flag file should be named not "flag.png" but "skinnamehere.png" You do not have to close ViOrb and reopen it to apply the skins, the program does that for you. NOTE: Although it says it's version 0.0.0.2, it's actually 0.0.1.

OK, things have changed. I noticed a few bugs while testing on another computer, so I went into fixing them, and then I decided to update the whole thing. So, here is version 0.0.2. What's new?
  • In the first release, I accidentally made it impossible to choose a ViOrb location outside of Program Files. This is fixed.
  • Also, the first version messes up when you delete a skin from your folder and then relaunch it. That is corrected here.
  • The program originally crashed if you tried to apply a skin while a file was in use. This one fixes that.
  • Aside from bug fixes, this one also supports ViOrb Remastered. A drop-down box allows to select ViOrb Standard or Remastered. (Although you do have to close Remastered before applying a skin)
  • The new version also dropped some unused code that caused problems.

Also, here's some skins to go with it (two by me).
These skins are as follows:
  • ViOrb Default by Lee Chantrey
  • Aero Ultimate ViOrb by fediaFedia
  • ViOrb MCE by fediaFedia
  • Windows 7 6801 ViOrb skin by fediaFedia
  • Windows Live by mixen.dixon5
  • Lime Orb by mixen.dixon5

OK, now I've reached version 1.0. This first official version of ViOrb Skin Manager includes a better orb preview, short and sweet skin names (as opposed to the long filename of the original), slightly realigned elements, and that's basically it. You can still get it from the version 0.0.2 link, since I have replaced the file.

Yeah, I realized I left out one important line of code. I'm going to upload the fix as soon as I can.

Oh, I forgot to mention that there is an easter egg hidden in the program. Hint: it involves the name I used before MixenSoft (I think you can still find the name in the old version).

No, I'm talking about the name I used for the "Company" field before I used MixenSoft. Right click the old version and chose Properties. You can find it in there.

You found it! IDR if I included the "Inc" in the egg (I don't think I did), but now you must figure out what to do w/ it.
