     Cool Progress Bar is a regular progress bar, but with some cool effects (ok, maybe I'm exaggerating a bit, but this was the first name that I came up with!). It was specially made for games (where a nice progress bar when loading the game always looks good, impresses the users and distracts them), but you can use it anywhere else. For now, all it supports is a gradation effect between two colors you choose (you can also choose the background color). But I plan to add a lot more effects, from custom graphics to transition effects and masks. If the progress bar looks awful in the screenshot, you probably have a color depth of 256 or 16 colors. 16 bits is the minimum for a cool effect. It's not my fault (you can always mess with the system's palette to make it use the progress bar's in 256 colors), sorry. Feel free to give me your own suggestions, and please vote, I worked very hard on this!
