SAO: Gun Gale Online visual style for Windows 7 by yorgash SAO: Gun Gale Online visual style for Windows 7 by yorgash
Consider donating 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 dark, simple and easy to use Windows 7 theme based on Sword Art Online's GUI.
Inspired by the GUI seen in GGO. Planning to release a matching Rainmeter skin suite in the future.

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

The theme has been ported to Windows 8 / 8.1 by cu88.

If you can, download it through his deviation page here. It might take you through a couple of ad sites, but that is to support him. 

If you are however vary of ad sites, download it from my st.ash.

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

How to install:
Here is a full guide and help that I uploaded to reddit.

Basically, you will have to:

- 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 I used for the taskbar separately from here.
Those icons were originally made for the light SAO theme.

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

In the package you will find:

- The visual style

- Navigation icons - explorerframe.dll

- Clock - timedate.cpl

- Shell style - shell32.dll

- Start orb

- A simple icon set and Iconpackage that I used for the explorer windows

- Temporary wallpaper (that you can change the same way you normally would)

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

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

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

If you like my work and want to see more and support the making you can donate via PayPal at yorgash@mailbox.hu, or by supporting my crowdfunding campaign

You can also purchase the Premium Content on the site as a form of donation.

God I'd kill to have this in windows 10. Regardless, nice work bro! Rare to see quality themes like this. They're always too over the top or too minimal for my tastes. This offers a nice balance with a clean cut look and a great feel to it.

Purchasing is totally optional, and a way to donate; the free download contains everything as well.

I've installed uxstyle and copied the themes in the resource themes directory but this is how I see it: www.dropbox.com/s/u7zeo5qpcbuo…

The uxtheme.dll patch failed for some reason.

Download Universal Theme Patcher, restore the system files it can restore, then either reinstall UxStyle or patch it with Universal Theme Patcher instead before re-applying the theme.

Sadly you'll have to do it manually for now.

It's not corrupted, only zipped with 7zip; unless you have 7zip or the newest version of WinRAR installed, you won't be able to extract it.

Whenever I try to extract the zip file, I get an error code 0x80004005. It keeps me from extracting all of the files except the "Credits to darkblackswords" image.

There's nothing you can do about it right now except by restoring your shell32.dll back to the original (remember to change both .dlls in System32 and SysWOW64 if you're on a 64-bit machine) The shell32.dll for the theme basically changes the colour of the task pane/context menu etc.

Thanks a lot for your hard work :D got a problem though. How do I remove the ugly orange highlight and the blue blur? 
Here a Screenshot of it

(Well, it's probably cause I didn't replace the system files. Do you know why cu88 didn't include the .dll files? Guess i'm too stupid to replace few files xD Using Windows 8.1 Pro - 64bit )

:iconyorgash:
yorgash Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2015  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Not sure about that, I'm a bit under-informed about Windows 8.1 sadly.

I think installing the applications cu88 listed should help fix the problem.

I'm planning to make one, just now I have had to take up an actual job too (got into a bit of mess with my bank), so with ~10 hours of work every day, I have waaay less time (and energy) to make progress.
