How to force transparency.



Video, detailing 2 methods (This tutorial and a hex method), as well as containing proof that it works: [link]

This is a simple tutorial on how to force transparency on Vista, using an integer in Ave's vista style builder.

For a tutorial on how to do this via Hex-editing, see this by ~marxo.

For a forum post of both tutorials, see this tutorial, on forums.

________________________________________ _______

Navigate to "Fonts, colours & system metrics" > "Colours (Globals)", and set "COLORIZATIONCOLOR:INT" to 0 (Zero)

Save the style, and when applied, if Aero is enabled, Transparency wil be forced on.

This can be used to enable transparency for your visual style on Vista Home Basic, too, where transparency exists, but cannot be enabled (Until now! :D)

I am a user of Vista Home Basic, and as the creator of this tutorial, i can portray that this works flawlessly.

I hope you enjoy this simple tut, please :+fav: and comment if used.
