// 16.01.2011 // updated to 1.1

This is my first visual style for windows 7
From time to time i will update the style, add new features or renew the old ones.

The file contains
// Visual Style (Font Corbel, 8Pt)
// Visual Style (Font Segoe UI 9Pt -> Standard)
// Preview
// explorerframe.dll for x64 and x32 systems
You can also get the x32 explorerframe here: [link]
// read me.txt

Thanks a lot to all the suggestions and the support!

This theme is amazing, it's almost all I was looking for, but I do have a question/request.

Could you please make a version with softer colors? I mean, the blue and the yellow are too strong, anyways it looks good.

Same as A4X7 - I use this GREAT theme for a looong time. It is almost perfect :)

I was hopping that there will be v1.5 and later v2.0, which can fix few small things, but I guess there will be new versions...

It doesn't seem to work for me somehow :-(
System patched, all other themes work.
Whenever I apply cushy I only see the original Windows theme :\

Ey, same here. I really like the design of this theme but it won't show. It comes up as the Windows Basic and everything is patched. So, i am having the same problem.

Why isnt the theme working on my win7 32-bit . I copied the standard font folder and .themefile in Windows/resources/theme . And Have Also used uxthemepatcher !

You'll have to copy the folder containing the .msstyles-fileto your themes-directory, too ;)

I did ! the standard font folder contains .msstyles file ! it still does not work !
Reply
:iconsnipes2:
snipes2 Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2012  Student General Artist
Okey, here's the easy way:
>Rename one of the folders containing the msstyles-file (e.g. "cushy 1.2_small font_corbel") to "cushy 1.2"
>Double click again on the .theme file.


The "cushy 1.2.theme-file" points to the folder "cushy 1.2" so you will have to decide which file you want to use.
Tip: You can open the .theme-file with notepad and edit the path yourself...

Love this theme :) But just one thing bugs me - when two windows of the same program is open on the taskbar (for example, Chrome or any Explorer window), both of them turn blue (Picture - [link]). Can I change it to any other color?
Reply
:iconsnipes2:
snipes2 Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2012  Student General Artist
Well, thats intentionally ;)

You would have to change the image file with restorator or teh WSB...

Unfortunately not...
You can search here on DA for some usefull hints.
And i know virtual customs [link] has an introduction to visual styles.

It's not like visual style skinning is a widespread art ;)
Most people are self taught, so you'll have to invest some time.
Feel free to ask if you need any help!
