Pspfreak101 - take a look here (if you haven't already):

http://macthemes2.net/wiki/Extras.rsrc

It's possible that the date/time could be index 46... I haven't tried it myself, but it may be worth a shot.

negative on 46 I imagine its on line 30 since most of those effect the menu bar

So far I did these menu bar icons shown in the screenie:

Spaces
Volume
ScriptMenu
HomeSync
Eject
Fax
Keychain
Displays
User
Time Machine (not completely as you can see. I guess there are some files elsewhere, I looked in the time machine app as well but didn't see anymore to edit. so maybe somebody can help with that.)

I'm not sure about the time, date, and spotlight :/ I assume the settings for these are stored somewhere else?

To change them you'll have to go to /System/Library/CoreServices/Menu Extras and then show package contents for each menu item... Navigate to the resources folder and replace the pdf there.

Meh - I've already gone back to normal Leopard... I would make tons of versions if the Time/Date thing could be fixed, but then again, it also involves having to edit the menubar icons in order to get it looking half-decent. Just too much tinkering for me...

I'm willing to put in the effort.

But I hear that when altering the SArtFile.bin it actually increases the file size by double.
This really turns me off the whole process. But if it would look entirely clean, with time/date as you say, I'd be a total convert.

Where did you hear/read that? If you look at one of my previous posts, you'll find a link to the decoder and encoder for the SArtFile.bin. Doesn't double the file size at all...

I got my Black Menubar from the original LeoLoco Menubar mod. I use iStat clocks for the time. Also I included a picture of the select gradient.

OK I messed around a little and I came up with one I really like.

Edit: Gray Menubar Theme V2 ;)
Changed the previews, so as not to mislead anyone, after Sabr told me my font was ugly lolz
I also included the original SArtFile.bin & Extras2.rsrc but you all should be backing up your stuff.

@chekkz

I'm really digging the slight grey variation. But there is something that is really annoying, the apple is different sizes for click and non-click states:

Can you fix that and make a grey one to match the grey of the Finder window. That would be choice! Thx!!

Black and green just don't look good when used in conjunction in the menu bar...

Hey Sabr,

I tried the Apple Chrome on the menbar with Pspfreak's Extras2.rsrc. I ended up with the normal menubar, except with white text :lol: That means somehow the SArtFile.bin isn't working properly. I made sure to delete the old one before installing the new one, and I cleared all the system caches but it didn't work. Thanks for the work! :D

Then it's a problem on your end - since it works fine here (no need to restart btw, just relaunch Finder):

The above image is without the modded Extras2.rsrc (hence the black text)...

I see what u mean but it seems to be the same no matter which one I use, the mods or the original...was nothing I did to change the size, all I did was edit the color of the original. -_-
About a gray one to match the finder? You mean to match the finder when the window is selected?

It's probably the stroke (outter-line of pixels) on the Apple on the slected image. Just make the unselected and selected the same png, then you'll have no problem at all... -_-
