Windows8 RTM and 8.1 Visual Style by PeterRollar Windows8 RTM and 8.1 Visual Style by PeterRollar
Got some requests to make a VS which matches with my other Windows8/XP deviations. This is my first try to make a VS, so don't be to harsh with your critics.:) XP only.
This VS is based on the very popular SevenVGRTM themefav.me/d27itxi by :iconvishal-gupta: with permission from the author. Thank you for the allowance.:handshake:
The file contains 2 VS. One with and one without startbutton. Simply a question of taste.
Made for Windows XP only.

:new: Featured on AskVGwww.askvg.com/download-windows…
Read the great article and learn how to use this stuff.:D
:new: Totally redone september 1. Old version is still included in the download. Please have a closer look at the tutorial, if you wanna use the advanced version.
All screenshots taken from my XP SP3 system.:)

This VS will be part of my upcoming transformation pack. Preview herepeterrollar.deviantart.com/art…

Give it a try.:D

:new: Totally redone september2
New borders
Modified quickstartbuttons
New taskbar
Windows8 like statusbar
Modified taskbarbuttons

:new: Window 8.1 Visual Style added. Find it in the folder "Advanced" and read the tutorial.:)

I have supported XP all the time, but meanwhile it is almost dead. I think there isn't anymore much interest for this kind of stuff. :(
I know the theme you mentioned, it is in my favourites, and i still like it. One of the best XP themes around DA.
Thank you for your nice comment.:handshake:

mmmm yeah! you're right! The "Long live" to our lovely and esitating XP has been down. And more fast as the time go. Unfortunately i still using XP for hardware reasons and i think couse i don't know how to modify themes, plus i just downloading themes... i think that i hadn't enjoy my XP in the way that i wish. :( For that reason is that i the other day i put to some order in my themes folder and end once time again to come here to end downloading a couple of themes more.

Anyway i think that everybody of us have a security copy of XP with a few or lot deskmodding stuff. And i want ...some day... finishing my personal unnateted copy of XP with the perfect stuff.

Well, sorry for boring you. Have a nice day.

I think you know that your system must be patched to use modified themes. If your system is patched, which theme do you try to use? Default or advanced one?

You only need to select "Group similar taskbar buttons" in the properties menu of the taskbar.

Nun ja das ist offensichtlich ein Problem Deines Systems, nicht der Datei. War die Kiste gerade etwas überlastet als Du das probiert hast? Vielleicht probierst Du es einfach nach einem Neustart noch mal.

:iconeluvehnan:
Eluvehnan Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2013   Digital Artist
Die ist wirklich alles andere als überlastet, zumindest in meiner Sicht. Alle anderen Themes die ich habe kann ich ja anwenden.
Woran kann das liegen?

Naja die Theme geht an, zwar mit Fehlermeldung aber... komischerweise manchmal mit weißer Schrift und dann mit schwarzer aber immerhin, saubere Arbeit übrigens.

PeterRollar Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Falls Du die "Advanced version" benutzt, musst Du die Einstellungen wie im Tutorial beschrieben, manuell vornehmen. Dann ist auch das Poblem mit schwarzer/ weisser Schrift behoben.
