:bulletblue: List View items now match the color scheme.
:bulletblue: Items View items now match the color scheme.
:bulletblue: Tree View items now match the color scheme.
:bulletblue: New Progress bars. (I'll update them again in the next release)
:bulletblue: Tabs have been updated to remove the missing pixel.

:bulletblue: Includes a .theme file again.

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

Updated March 15, 2011 @ 7:00PM EST

:bulletblue: Taskbar / Taskband Left, Top, Right, Bottom, Small (Aero/Basic)
:bulletblue: Window Frames (Basic, Animating, Aero Tool, Basic Tool, Aero Peek)
:bulletblue: Tabs
:bulletblue: New Radio and Checkbox (Yes again)


Note: The next update will be larger than these small updates.


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


Updated March 15, 2011 @ 3:35PM EST

:bulletblue: New Frames (Real)
:bulletblue: New Caption Buttons (Real)
:bulletblue: New Scrollbar
:bulletblue: Updated Scrollbar and Trackbars (Real)
:bulletblue: Updated Buttons (Improvised Real)
:bulletblue: Updated TaskBand Button to match.
:bulletblue: Changed TBEUI's Background to match.
:bulletblue: Changed Radio Box to match the color scheme.
:bulletblue: Changed Check Box to match the color scheme.
:bulletyellow: Ported SysMetrics and Global Color scheme.

I'm not done for the day, this is just a checkpoint.

Special Thanks to: AngelWZR.

Note: (I'm still not happy about the Radio and Checkbox's default states. They'll be revised again in a later update when I find a consistent and proper look)


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

So this is a quick unfinished version of Aero Lite's recreation for 7.

Here's what's done:

Window Frame (Aero)
Window Caption Buttons (Aero)
Push Buttons
Combo Box
Radio Box
Check Box
Taskbar
Taskband
Start Menu (Aero)
Jump Lists

I will continue editing this until I replace at least 90% of all imagery in the msstyles. Enjoy.

Hey dude your VS is every pixel perfect rather than bunch of those floating on dA.So we request you to make further improvements in it.I'm myself using the same theme from last 3 weeks and i'm loving the simplicity..:)

Not sure why you say 'better' alternatives... yours is the best of the bunch. Nothing is out of place, every pixel feels like it belongs there. These others really do suck... I don't mind you stopping, at least your better copy is still available!

Shelkadom,

I tried your theme, but for me it lacked the flatness that I like, and had some issues with hovering on taskbar previews, toolbox forms, and where the side of a window meets the title bar. I uploaded the pictures for you to view.

Please see theme_issues.zip here: [link]

Just search Windows 8 on DA. A lot of them will show up. For example:

The taskbar button roll over still uses glassy gradient from aero glass. This is the only thing that is annoying me so far. Would you be able to fix this in the next update.

If I disable that the flash button stops working.

I won't be making an Aero version, however if you want to open the msstyles in a resource hacker and modify STREAM > 971. Remove the blue that matches the frames.
Reply
:iconlukej12:
lukej12 Featured By Owner May 16, 2011
What exactly would I do to modify the 971 directory under STREAM? I'm not 100% sure what you mean.

awesome thanks for the update. Small nitpicks I have, not a fan of the scroll bar and the border around the account icon on start menu. It also can be hard to see what applications I have opened sometimes. Still using this as my default theme, I like it better than aero :D
