Royale ported to Windows 7 Aero and Basic.

The original Royale is © Microsoft.

The start orb shown can be found here: [link]
The wallpaper that I used can be found in `night-fate's gallery.

I like Royale theme, my favorite. I used it for long time in XP and Server 2003 and I installed this theme in my WIndows 7. I liked it but it's not completed, I think. Menus are still Windows 7 style. I hate menus of Windows 7 and newer versios of Windows. They are huge. XP/2003 had best menus. Now I disabled Themes service and I use Classic Theme. Better than any theme except Royale. Somehow I applied Royale theme when Themes service was already stopped and now accidentaly I made my own theme. Classic with even better menus XP style. Just title buttons now looks ugly but nothing is perfect.
I don't know if it is possible to make Royale theme with XP menus but if so take in consideration to make one for me and others like me. :) And then I'd feel fullyu XP style in Windows 7.

I meant all menus not Start Menu. Start Menu is perfect on this theme. I Already installed ClassicShell but it has no option for menus. In the meantime I'm back to Windows Server 2003 with original Royale theme. :)

Hi guys. Thanks Satukoro for this port. For those interested, I have made an improved version here; it has minor bugs fixed, and it includes the Noir theme, XP sounds, wallpapers, and screensavers. There is more to come so stay tuned.

Is there a way to make the taskbar narrow like in the picture? It is currently wide. And also is it possible to make the arrow next to All Programs green? It is currently black. Thank you!

Yeah. Right click the start orb and click "properties". Then, when the properties window comes up, click the "taskbar" tab. Then check the box saying "use small icons" and go to the drop-down menu that says "always combine" and choose "never combine". There you go :)

Very nice and thanks. I always use old themes on new OSes! Specially original themes, always a reminder of what it used to be.

The problem with the background of the start menu is only in the non aero theme. But there, after clicking on a folder, the items are highlighted no more if you hover over them.

This is exactly what I was looking for. Thank you.
Unfortunately I have two major problems with this.
- A background program waiting for an answer doesn't blink in the taskbar (mentioned some time ago by another user). This can sometimes be quite annoying.
- If I click on a folder in the start menu the background turns to white. So the white text cannot be read any more. Quite annoying, too. I first have to move the curser away from the menu and back to it. When a program name is wider than the start menu the background also turns to white when you hover over it.
I'd be very grateful if you could fix these or is that something I can adjust in Windows 7? I tried all possible personalization settings, they don't change that behavior.
