RED ICE - THE FIRST REAL VS FOR WINDOWS 7 RC and RTM

So, after I decided to switch to Windows 7, I finally ported my RED ICE VS, which I released for Windows Vista before [link] , to Windows Seven.
The only problem, in my opionion, are the taskbar buttons. I didn't make changes to them, because the icon color detection is optimized for the windows 7 buttons, so that I let them how they are.


RED ICE</u>

I came to the idea to make a new fresh red VS, as I saw a documentation on ntv (a german TV channel). At the beginning I had a few problems, but now I'm very proud how it came out

AERO MOD ONLY



>UPDATE<

-added x64 system files




Package Content</i>

-Visual Style [.theme file included]
-Explorer.exe RC/RTM [x86/x64]
-explorerframe.dll RC/RTM [x86/x64]

-uxtheme files RC [x86/x64]




Credits</u></i>

-Explroer Icons -> W R E N by :iconapathae:

I hope you all enjoy my VS; comments and :+fav:'s are welcomed :)

I really like the the cool layout & color combination. It gives a clean, elegant look to my PC. Thank you so much for the time & effort you must put into this piece of artwork and I really appreciate the fact you give it to us free when you can easily put a price tag. I've seen so called junk work trying to rip us off by charging us for it! YOU have given rich meaning to the term 'sharing'. Have a great and blessed day!
AND ROCK ON!

Alright, I've got the theme and all. I extracted it to C:\Windows\Resources\Themes but whenever I go to use it, it comes up with a black background and a white taskbar. Actually, it looks in no way like what you've created. Maybe I'm missing something? Was there supposed to be a special place for each folder?

Hi.. :w00t:

I moved the buttons of your VS in the "ieframe.dll" and it works well, but I still display some defects, as you can see in this capture -> [link]
The buttons "Previous" and "Next" seem too separated, and the small arrow to the right of the buttons is too left..

I think the reason is simple, BMP are not identical in size..
So I modify with Photoshop..

You can also see that the gray background of VS is hidden by the blue background of the toolbar, but I do not know what are the BMP to change.. :?
Maybe you do an update of your VS with a new "ieframe.dll" included.. ;)

For against, changing font size in the advanced settings of display have not resolved my problem text cut.. I am still looking for a solution.. ^^;

:icondjabytown:
DjabyTown Featured By Owner May 14, 2009  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Ah, yeah I see it. It looks like a separator. in the explorerframe.dll is an extra image. I think 280?. Don't know exactly, but maybe it is similar in the ieframe.dll.

Hm, don't think I'll include it. The reason is that I and I expect most users,too, don't use IE :P
Reply
:iconjin-kurodo:
Jin-Kurodo Featured By Owner May 14, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes, in "ExplorerFrame.dll" it's the "280", and similar BMP in "ieframe.dll" is called "TRAVEL_BACKGROUND.BMP", but has a different dimension..

I understand that you're not going to include "ieframe.dll" modified, no problem.. ;)

I would make the necessary changes, and other users of IE8 will know what BMP must change if they want to change..

Thank you again for your patience and your advice.. :thanks:

Hi DjabyTown.. :w00t:

I use your theme for Seven RC with great pleasure, but I have a small display problem.. Can you help me solve them ? ^^;

In IE8, some buttons have the font so small that it can not be read (we do not see the text of the button)..
In some menus, the text of the buttons is cut off because I use the French language.. How to shrink the text in these buttons ?
And I also saw that the buttons "Back" and "Next" maintain the original appearance of IE8, not your theme... :?

I would also like to change some details of your theme, like the time display, or the buttons window (Close, Maximize, Minimize), but I know how I can do..
Buttons Window "Longhorn" would be very well on this theme, but I can not find the correct files with "Reshack".. :sniff:

Thank you in advance for your help.. :please:

Sorry for my bad english

First, thanks a lot for your kind words :)
I think, in Vista the IE navigation buttons didin't change, too. But there was a .dll called ieframe. Don't know where it is in 7.
And about the font problem. Do you mean the font, for example on the google site, wich is unreadable? I've noticed that before, but it is a problem of IE 8, I think. Other themes have the same problem.
And for the text which is cut off, try to change the size in the internet options. There is a menu called fonts.

If you want to edit a VS yourself I recommond to use VSB [VistaStyleBuilder]. But for the beginning "Restorator" is ok, too. Just browse in the images and you will find them. :)

Jin-Kurodo Featured By Owner May 13, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
Thank you for the quick response .. :thanks: :D

I'll watch if I find in IE8 a file that corresponds to "ieframe.dll" but I do not think.. :blushes:

For the problem of police unreadable (because too small) on the buttons, some sites have this problem, "Google Translate for example, but not other sites..
I will also look in internet options to reduce the size of the text cut.. :)

I know a little "Restorator", and I know that is more comprehensive than "Reshack" to modify a VS or dll..

Again thank you for these explanations.. :hug:

no problem :)
and about the ieframe.dll, I was just looking for it. It has the same name like in vista and is located in C:\windows\system32 :)

:iconjin-kurodo:
Jin-Kurodo Featured By Owner May 13, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
Indeed, the "ieframe.dll" is also in "C:\Windows\Sytem32", in Seven RC.. =)

So I just change the corresponding BMP, and the theme will also be active in IE8..

Thank you.. :hug:
