I've decided to go with the textured NSWindow simply because it looks so good for my intended app. However, the default metalic-looking texture seems to be non-editable, and all edits you can do to the window seems to be to change its backgroundcolor. This would be ok if the backgroundcolor did have the same shadow-effects as the default texture, but it doesnt and looks plain and boring. I've been thinking about workarounds, like making a whole new custom view, but before getting to that, is there anything I'm missing as to how to customize the background of a textured window? Is there a simpler way to get that same look but with another color, or is there a way to actually set the background texture?
