Updated to BETA 2
I've included extra files such as browseui.dll & explorer.exe (with blank start menu button)
Included 2 options for shellstyle.dll. one with "folderpane" (organize bar) showing the other with autohide.
Improved the start menu!
About 50 little extra things changed (thanks to ~elmercin for pointing a few out)
Included wallpaper mods (permission received from *ether and *chiwou)

There are still several things I haven't completed such as vertical taskbar. I had other font options and colors, but will have to do them now that I 've updated so many things.
Hold tight final versions coming soon =)

Please let me know of any other bugs and suggestions, and I'll do my best to do them.

Note
This is a non-AERO theme.
Tested on Win7 RC Build 7100 x86
Somtimes you might have problems applying this theme, under performance options uncheck "enable desktop composition" but CHECK "use visual styles..."

Info
This is BETA of a port I'm doing of the wonderful Vista Visual Style Base by ~jg-visuals
and I'm also in the progress of releasing the MyriadBASE Suite

Because its BETA there are a whole lot of things not perfect or skinned properly. Thats why I need you to try it out and tell me what's missing or not good enough

The zip contains only the visual style, the other files will be included in the Final Release

The Suite
To see the Myriad Base Suite in action check:

or MyriadBASE SUITE Collection


The MyriadBASE Suite is a follow up to my previous suite Myriad. It was inspired by the wonderful Visual Style Base by jg-visuals.

Credits
The credit and creative ideas for many of the graphics, colours, and other elements belong to jg-visuals.
Permissions to release this skin have been graciously granted from jg-visuals.

The wall used in the preview is a mod of *chiwou's great Request. Permission to use the image was obtained.

I like the basic, simple look and the darkness enahnces it. I would look into using this in the near future. Good Creation.

win7 64bit can use it?
AlbinoAsian's avatar
It should work yes, except the resources files haven't been modified for 64 bit... the theme itself should work though

Hey - the style looks great!
Just trying to install the Theme but my Win7 doens't apply it - any ideas?
AlbinoAsian's avatar
hi mate,

sorry it took so long to reply, yes sometimes Windows can have problems applying it. You will need to run Windows 7 in basic VS mode ie non-Aero. Do you know how to do that?

very very nice. Win7 needs more minimal dark styles!!
AlbinoAsian's avatar
thanks mate, I love dark styles

Any chance you can make for windows xp?
AlbinoAsian's avatar
I really wish I could, but I've never skinned XP myself nor do I have XP to do it. I'm sorry about that
