Ok, I found how to make the Translucent menus reappear, I created an installation package because I didn't like the way there were tutorials on the net, and I created a torrent.

Mac OS 10.5.2 Translucent Menus (download torrent) - TPB (http://thepiratebay.org/tor/4130414)

Download if you wanna test it for me :p

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but menus are translucent.

I'm not sure if you're redistributing Apple's IP (which might well be illegal) and don't really care, but for the benefit of anyone who plans to try this for you, it would be a good idea (and good manners) to let them know exactly what this does; which files it replaces/alters etc.

For all we know, it could send a copy of our valuable digital treasures to add to the booty in your online pirate lair.

Ah, sorry, was actually supposed to do an assignment but let myself get distracted. The result should be the restoration of approximately 65% blurred translucent drop-down menus, at the apparent expense of the "Translucent Menu Bar" being unchangeable (from the Translucent state).

The files are basically the ones from here (http://apple2pc.blogspot.com/2008/03/how-to-make-menus-transparenttranslucen.html) minus the tricky log-in-via-root procedure.

Sorry again for the lack of information.

Version 2 is out at Translucent Menus version 2 (download torrent) - TPB (http://thepiratebay.org/tor/4133557/Translucent_Menus_version_2) and you can check the package with Pacifist -> There is no mac virus, no spyware, just some files being installed to the right places with the right permissions. Feel free to check (EDIT: with tools such as Pacifist). In fact you should check anyway. It's the internet. Don't be too trusting.

And you want a preview? what about this:
