Thanks to em3 for giving me permission to finish and release this skin.
And thanks for the help while I was working on the skin.

As a long time LE fan, it's very cool to release my own version and share it with the rest. Some parts are made by em3 though so I cant take credit for those parts.
Anyways thanks em3 for letting me do this!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Go to "C:\WINDOWS\Resources\Themes" and create a new folder called "LE Black".
Put the *.msstyle into that folder.

To use this theme you need to patch the Windows system file uxtheme.dll. You can read about how to do that here: [link]

If you want to use the included Logon place 'logonui_black.exe' in C:\ and run the included logonui_install.reg.

Bugs
Before reporting any bugs try and think of and explaination why the bug occurs and don't assume immediately it's a VS problem. Here are 2

"bugs" I know of:
* Black text background for checkboxes in some applications. (Application bug)
* In Firefox the scrollbar glyph doesn't change color on hover. (Firefox bug)
* Multi row taskbar does not look good. (Theme)

Modification:
For personal use only.

Don't forget to let me know what you think :) This theme is concidered finished, so if you don't like it, don't use it.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Bug fixes and updates:

14-06-07:
- Fixed classic color scheme.
- Fixed password box in the logon screen. It still had blue corners.

17-06-07:
- Added the new blue active-button. Active-buttons now looks different then hovered-buttons.
- Changed the HotTracking color to the correct shade of orange.
- Fixed the blue shadow that was behind the "Welcome" text in the logon.
- Fixed other minor color "bugs"

18-06-07:
- Added a shellstyle cause the demand was high.
- Made the hover in the columns in detail views more noticable.
- Some minnor unnoticable color changes.

20-06-07:
- Updated the shellstyle text and arrow colors
- Fixed the useraccount dialog colors in the shellstyle

23-06-07:

Can Windows 7 users use this (and the logon)?
Jamush's avatar
Nope, sorry! This theme is made for Windows XP.

The theme files isn't included because this actually isn't a theme but a visual style. Visual styles don't theme files. As you can see, you've added your own wallpaper and screensaver into the theme file which other people don't have. The visual style only comes with a login screen and not with a screensaver, wallpaper, custom sounds and whatnot. So that's the reason why there's no theme file, and why no one has requested one yet.

By giving others your own code for the theme file you are actually making a problem that I wanted to prevent from happening. You're giving them code with a wallpaper they don't have, a screensaver they don't have, some weird code for "MasterThemeSelector" and links to icons that they might not want to use as they might have replaced those icons themselves. Therefor I'll be flagging your post as spam to prevent any problems.

Is there version of Luna Elements for W7? I just installed W7 and I want Luna back :)
brenr's avatar
You may want to check out this if you want this theme for Windows 7.
I know it says Vista port but it is still compatible since they use the same resources. The person who made the theme even confirmed it wasn't an issue with having Windows 7 as opposed to Vista.

Nope, there's no version of Luna Elements for W7. It was made with XP in mind as well so there aren't any ports either.

yea, what a luck! Iam using TuneUp Utill 2012 for its extensive content of use. I want change few settings today and find app TuneUp Styler which has Interface/Visual styles from Win. I was like wow, why I can see Luna element here, because I already deleted.
It works, TuneUp made it work, just change it trough this program and voala, back in action with LE black hehe :)
Jamush's avatar
Haha, have fun using it! :D

I have a request to you, can you make this theme compatible with 120 DPI setting ?
Jamush's avatar
Unfortunately I can't. I don't use Windows XP any more so I'm unable to give full support for these themes.
nyhao's avatar
same problem as envyouraudience. Using WinXP SP3. I used newest patcher v8 than create LE directory and theme does not show up in Display dialog. (i can see in Themes directory that every theme has its own "*.theme file" but LEB it doesnt...)
thanks for advice
Jamush's avatar
The *.theme file isn't necessary as it holds configs for different sounds, cursors, colours and such. What happens when you double click *.msstyle file?
nyhao's avatar
It just open this tab.. [link] I cant see any other changes.
Jamush's avatar
Do other visual styles work the way they should?
nyhao's avatar
Yes, all default stuff is working fine.
