...be in trouble for reshacking the whole of Windows XP to make to look awesome?
Some of the transformation packs out there basicly reshack everything and replace with modified files. So, would I be in trouble?

It's fine if you don't redistribute the whole reshacked files. That's why people use scripts now, to patch the existing OS, by distributing only the resources and the resource scripts.

Thanks for the info and quick reply :D
I'm going to start a project of changing pretty much everything on XP and remove (nearly) all traces of windows branding... Anyone want to help???

I THINK A MOD NEEDS TO MOVE THIS TO "CUSTOMISATION" SORRY...

Well you can do whatever you want to your OS installations, but remember that BA will not distribute those modifications, as a complete patched ISO or in any other form. You are however allowed to discuss the matter as long as you don't go into how to bypass MS activation etc.

Moved to Customisation
