Q: What is Valley?
A: Summit is an OS X Yosemite Dark mode inspired theme for Windows 8.1+.
Q: Theme doesn't look like the screenshot!
A: Make sure you patched your system and you have shadows enable (this is required).
Q: There's a white bar in explorer, how do you get rid of it?
A: You need to use ONE or Ribbon Disabler to get rid of the whitebar.
Q: How can I download this?
A: Press the download button on the right side of the page.
Q: How can I install this theme?
A: Take the content of the zip folder you downloaded and place it in C:\Windows\Resources\Themes. Make sure you patch your computer using UXThemePatcher or UXStyle.
Q: How do I update the theme?
A: First, make a restore point to make sure you can always go back if anything goes wrong. Afterwards, change your theme to another theme such as the default aero theme. Log off and on, then insert the new theme files in the appropriate location (see above). Apply the theme and you're good to go!
Q: This doesn't look exactly like OS X Yosemite!
A: This is my take on Apple's flat style, so does not necessarily match OS X Yosemite 100%
Q: Help! The theme isn't applying and I am getting a grey basic theme!
A: Make sure to patch/override your uxtheme.dll file using UXStyle or UXtheme Ultra patcher.
Q: Will there be a windows 7 version?
A: Possibly, but I currently don't have Windows 7. Please do not ask as I already addressed this.
Q: Will there be an Aero version?
A: I'm not sure as the creator of Aero8 is not the nicest guy in the world.
Q: May I use this theme in my transformation/customization pack? May I make a mirror/redistribute it? Could I modify it for public use?
A: Absolutely no, unless you have permission from me.
This year a collaboration among deviantARTS most dedicated and active members joined together for an enormous project. This is the first of hopefully many to come. A full set of skins and themes to complement your desktop environment. An achievement set out for the Community by the Community.
Introducing UNITY 2014!
The goal was to get as many active members to come up with various themes/skins/icons/wallpapers with a set guideline of certain design elements to produce a cohesive and unified interface. The turn out was tremendous and some truly talented and gifted individuals stood up for the challenge. The results are astounding and I am honored and feel privileged to be a part of such a huge undertaking.
Please take the time to check out these amazing contributions and give them your love. Happy customizing!
STAY TUNED TO THIS JOURNAL AS IT WILL BE UPDATED FREQUENTLY WITH NEW SUBMISSION!
