Consider supporting me at Patreon! - My first patron can decide on a Rainmeter skin or Windows 7 theme for me to make next! (W8 / 8.1 / 10 ports are currently not guaranteed)

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

A light, easy to use Windows 7 theme based on Sword Art Online's GUI.

Also planning to make a dark, GGO theme in the near future.

Now ported to Windows 8 too! Download it here:
SAO Theme For Windows 8.1 by cu88

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

I've also made an installer to be used with 7TSP.


I've separately uploaded the 7tsp installer, since DA has some kind of problem updating the main file when zip inside zip is involved. Download from my st.ash:

SAO theme installer for 7tsp

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

How to install:

You can install the theme using 7tsp.
Download and install 7tsp, and browse for the .7z pack inside it, then click on "Start Patching".

Or the manual method:

- Install the fonts inside "Fonts" folder
- Download and install UxStyle (uxstyle.com) OR Universal Theme Patcher.
- Copy the contents of Themes folder to \Windows\resources\themes folder.
- Apply it in personalization or double clicking .theme file you like.

Or you can install it with Windows 7+ Theme Installer
Direct download

For the rest you can use Customizer God
Direct download

Or follow this guide if you're stuck:
How to Install Custom Themes - A guide by neiio

You can get the icons separately from here.

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

In the package you will find:

- The visual style

- Navigation icons - explorerframe.dll

- Clock - timedate.cpl

- Shell style - shell32.dll

- Start orb

- Icon sets with templates

- Logon screen

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

With any questions, requests, suggestions, feedback, or help contact me:

- Mail: yorgash@mailbox.hu

- Steam: yorgash

- Skype: yorgash

- Or leave a note here, on DA

So I've installed this using 7tsp, and the patching itself worked flawlessly, and I enjoyed using that theme.
However, when I was listening to music later today, I noticed that it sounded very "flat", even though my audio manager (Creative Sound Blaster X-FI MB3)'s equalizer was set so there was more bass and treble. No matter what I changed in my manager, whether it be changing the reverb or even restarting my computer, nothing would change. I've lost nearly 2 hours trying to fix this problem, constantly reinstalling audio drivers and restarting my computer so many times that I lost count, until I realized that by changing the theme to my default one that my audio manager began working again!
Apparently, 7TSP is conflicting with my audio manager, but why is that? How can it be prevented?
hello, great theme. only a couple small issues, the outlines for the min max and close buttons dont match up with the inside circles. and im still getting the blue areo glass highlight on the task bar items. finally, my navigation buttons keep changing back to normal. are there any fixes?

edit, the min max close buttons just fixed themselves. i think it was the font.
Thank you. I used your art to complete my art.  I love SAO so i have been designing a Linux using Ubuntu of  SAO, but the windows side of my editing was more complicated. So i used your art to finish my  windows SAO OS. so basically  when i finish my work i will send you a copy to check out. Thank you again for your artistic work.

are you ever gonna make a windows 10 version because I would love to have my desktop look like sao!!!!
Hey amazing theme! But I just have one problem. I installed it using 7tsp but none of the icons changed :/
Spectacular theme!
I have only one problem: the start I just have only one option: "shut down" "restart" "disconnect" "switch user". You can not keep the mini menus to choose between the three?
Thanks a lot for everything!

Hello!

Currently I'm at a loss, I really want to start properly making themes for Windows 10, but am yet not sure how to.

I'll probably need a little guidance, so that I could start porting the themes I made first to W10 (since it's rare to find someone who decently ports the themes AND is willing to update when I do so as well).

Yo there are actually plenty of people on Virtual Customs who would be glad t help you out with learning how to port to Windows 10 and even help you with the porting if you're interested.


Feel free to look us up on https://virtualcustoms.net if you still want to give porting to Windows 10 a try.

Hello! I am very pleased to see this theme from MY favorite anime! :)

As much as I wanna see it port to Windows 10, but I'm sure it'll take time. Thanks for making this a dream come true. :D
