Aero Dynamic A0 OLD


Sorry if most of you hate It`s only temp until I figure out what`s going wrong with dA.

Will post back when this problem is resolved. :(

FINAL UPDATE: 8/22/2008

:headbang: The double size taskbar bug is GONE. Once and for all now.

The solution to the problem was so simple, I should have though of it earlier.

Credits for the solution to the bug go to: Adam S. a.k.a Sethlan
Thanks for the help! :)

So yeah this should be the last and FINAL time you guys will have to re-download A.D. A0.

The next VS project I have lined up for release, will be roughly based off of this one, but it will be MUCH improved.

I apologize to EVERYONE for the inconvenience :D.
Thanks everyone for all the support. I greatly appreciate it all.

hey nice theme by the looks of it ... i have downloaded it ... but when the download has completed ... it saves your file as a word document, have any ideas on how i can fix this so i can use ur theme ?
downtheory's avatar
Hmm :confused:.

Try right mouse clicking the "download" link to the left of the preview picture, and then click "Save As..." make sure the ending file extension says ".rar". To me, it sounds like your web browser or whatever you are using is renaming the file extension to a Word document.

Which is odd :).

Hope this was helpful.
Let me know if this doesn`t work for you.

I do have a few more suggestions.

The hover over box on start menu items (Documents, My Computer, ect) probably needs to lose the black border in favor of a faded edge, or at least something softer.

Also on the start menu, if possible, make it when you click "all programs" that the background and text be the same as when you first pop up the menu.

The corner buttons (exit, minimize, maximize) could probably do with a makeover. I'm not very creative, so I'm not sure what could be done there.

I wish I could help more actively, but I'm no good with things like photoshop or anything.

Appreciate the input Woraug. :)

I`m already way ahead of you on the start menu styling.
Been working on a little something that might make it look better than it does in this preview.

The all programs button seems to fit the bottom portion of the start menu, at least it does to me, the only thing bothering me about it is the text color. It`s driving me crazy, I have no clue how to change it yet. :confused:

The corner buttons in this preview have been done away with. :)

Not sure how the new changes will look, kind of not sure I want to upload the new preview shot yet, I don`t feel like this VS is going anywhere like I`d hoped...the whole thing is starting to feel like a huge mess. :D

It definitely needs some tweaking, but a damned nice theme overall.

A few friendly tips:

Might wanna mess with the Start Menu button some, it looks somewhat jagged.

Do something with the details pane in the windows explorer. Make it the same style as the top of windows, you know. Semi transparent, and the same fogged blue glass thing.

On another note with the start menu button, either make the hover turn the logo completely white, or not so much white. When you hover over, it look like all the colors change white except the yellow.

Sorry if I'm coming off as a critic, I'm just a nitpicker for the details.

I didn`t think anyone was still download this version. :D

I greatly appreciate the tips / suggestions you`ve given me. And they will be used when I re-release AD A0 sometime soon. Also I`m glad you enjoy Aero Dynamic. But as you said, it does need tweaking.

But instead of a re-release, AD A0 will be rebuilt from scratch, since the current "foundation" it`s on is flawed to say the least.

And any current versions of AD A0, WILL be removed from my gallery soon. That way everyone won`t be downloading an update, but a new VS.
Aero Dynamic is going to be done correctly this time lol. :D

So if you have anymore ideas or suggestions feel free to let me know. Any input or help I can get I`ll take. :)

where do you find cool backgrds like that?
downtheory's avatar
Normally I get them from here [link] or I get them from my friend who emails me wallpaper packs he pays for. :D

Amazing style, the best one I have found yet.

I like it so much that I learned how to edit the msstyles, to figure out how to fix your double size problem.

If you resize your start menu pictures it solves the problem.

You need to change the IMAGE 868 - 879 to an image size that is 60x98 pixels and each of the 3 images inside should be 22px high.

What I did was take your start image and change the canvas size to 60x98, export the 3 images and reduce their size to 90%.

Once you import 868 up to and including 879 the double size taskbar bug is gone.

Sweet! :headbang:
Just when I had planned on giving up on A.D. A0. This has me so excited that I`m going to do another version of Aero Dynamic A0 under a different name now.

:D To make things easier, is there any way you could send me those images you modified? That way I can Rar them up and re-release it here.

Thanks a lot, and I appreciate the support and help. :)
Not sure if this link will work or not, but heres a try.


If the link does not work, if you leave your email I will send it there.
