Steam VS for Windows 7 by yorgash Steam VS for Windows 7 by yorgash
A Steam themed visual style for Windows 7. (Now updated with flash and progress bar version).

(Here's a video showing how the theme should look like when fully applied)
The visual style incorporates the appearance of Steam with a functioning Windows visual style.

The theme comes with 2 substyles - aside from the default, there's an automatically centering taskbar, and a more simple one. Will be adding another style later. Taskbar is usable with small icons, and side taskbar too, though the main focus is the bottom mode.

I'll be making matching icons and templates in a later release, but for now, it uses the timeless Token icons, as it was almost a perfect match for the Steam look. I'm also planning to make a matching Rainmeter suite.
I've also made preparations for making the Pixel Vision Steam theme styles VS.

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

Many thanks:

The Windows 8.1 port is finished, many thanks to neiio
Steam VS for Windows 8.1

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:

I personally do not run Aero on my gaming PC because I only have 1.5 GB VRAM and I use NVIDIA's Surround. That feature puts a huge strain on my VRAM availability when playing any game in Surround, thus I mentioned this to the author when I found this gem. I was not only given a quick response, like 10 minutes, but the author provided a Win 7 Basic theme within an hour of my comment, literally an hour. The only thing I wish that would be added is an option for different colors concerning the HDD remaining space. All in all this is a solid, great looking and well supported Theme, 5 Stars.
What do you think?

Great theme, The only thing I did not care for was my voice communication tool bar became a little hard to read with the word being black and the back ground dark grey when the program is not selected. I.E TeamSpeak, Mumble, Ventrilo and so on. The same goes for Microsoft word and Excel being hard to work in due to the background being dark grey. However I don't feel this takes away from the over all enjoyment of this theme and its a must download if you like changing the theme on your computer. This way a great design and will be keeping a eye out for other themes to come.

Will we get a Windows 10 version? If we do will it also support classic shell (or similar)?

Hi there! I just wonder if you have fixed the issue with flashing buttons on taskbar. I have updated to the latest version but I just see a new style with a tiny bar that flashes. Wasn't you able to make the whole button flash. I'm used to use the simple version and the buttons don't flash with it. Still loving the theme though :)

Oh true, I've totally forgotten about the basic version; I'll try to fix that one too after I'm finished with my current project. And while at it, might also make the fixed version a little bit better looking :)

Looking forward for that :) Oh, I know you are busy but another little detail was missed (I think I reported it a while back): the restore button icon looks similar to maximize button, this way it's hard to tell if a window is maximized or just sized to near the whole screen. Not a big deal but worth to remind about. Also I remember an issue with 3 state checkboxes where the 3rd state looked like unchecked.

I love the way this theme is supposed to look. Problem is, I followed the tutorial that was in the description, and also did all the things in the howto.txts, and it still doesn't work. The Taskbar is just a dark grey version of the XP/Vista (i cant remember) taskbar, and many of the other things are not appearing. The icons, the start orb, pretty much everything except the color is not here. Is there an uber specific tutorial anywhere?

If the taskbar looks like the classic Windows shell, just the color scheme applied (and I think the wallpaper too), that implies a missing or faulty theme patcher.

Have you installed UxStyle 

- If you didn't, go to its homepage, download and install it, then try applying the theme again.

- If you did, google on Universal Theme Patcher, restore the system files it can restore, then reinstall UxStyle

- If that fails, run UTP again, and patch the system files again

One of these should resolve that.

For the start orb:
Use this program with the png files I've provided in the 7zip archive.

For the taskbar, you manually have to replace the icons, or by a program called Taskbar Items Pinner. (I used Token icons for the theme, because they just fit; linked in description).

AWESOME! It works almost perfectly. The only thing is that the Minimize maximize and exit buttons are slightly but noticebly to the left of where they should be, and the previous and next buttons in explorer are still default. But these are minor problems, and this is my first time installing custom themes, so that's probably my fault. But great theme man, looks really good. Looking forward to the SAO one.

Thank you! :)

I might just have found a way to fix those caption buttons, will later try it.

The navigation icons (next, prev, etc in explorer windows) are part of explorerframe.dll, they can be changed by replacing that file (\Windows\system32\explorerframe.dll) with the one I've included.

I'm really close to finishing the SAO theme, if all goes well will be done with its initial release today (Sunday here).

Hello, I thank you very much for this theme i am using it since you released it. 
So you´ve updated it recently but i don´t find any diference. Is there something i should notice ?

First of all: thank you!

If I recall correctly, I've added a version that more or less works together with flash and progress bars for the taskbar items. I've made them a while ago though, just forgot I did until recently.

Also added a video to show people - who might not be sure if they applied it correctly or not - how the theme is supposed to look.

Hi, i tried installing the white pack, and when i restarted my computer i couldn't log on to windows and got a message saying ''The program can't start because SHELL32.dll is missing from your computer'' what could cause this problem? i have service pack one

yorgash Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2015  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Hello!

Typically there are 2 scenarios when this happens; 

1.) If you replace the wrong shell32.dll. For 32-bit you have to use the one inside the "x86" folder, and copy that shell32.dll into your System32 folder. For 64-bit systems you have to use the one inside "x64" folder, and copy that one into the System32 folder, and not the SysWOW64!

2.) You might have your anti-virus catching the file and deleting it. Since you take ownership and permission of a system file, your anti-virus might detect it as malicious intent initiated by a 3rd party, and quarantine -> delete your new shell32.dll, leaving you with the renamed shell32 (that will not be recognized by the system after you restart) and no actual shell32.dll file.

If you are sure you used the right dll file, you might try replacing the file again with anti-virus turned off, making sure you have the shell32.dll after you copy it (check if it is inside the folder like it should).

Hi, it seems like not all colors for hyperlinks were changed. Some hyperlinks are still blue (0 0 255) even if I change the link color under Display. If I change the link color while using a standard aero theme all links are recolored correctly.

Edit: Some links use the IE settings for their color, changing the color settings in IE fixed it.

This is fantastic. Only thing I dislike is that I use Outlook a lot and having the grey background makes some emails nearly impossible to read. It would be nice if you could release a version that had some sort of light grey background color for windows.
Reply
:iconajwsert:
ajwsert Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2014
There is a way to change the background color for windows, you even can do that. However, the downside is that color is shared for several elements that you wouldn't even think it's related to window's background and then it's hard to conciliate. Unfortunately it's not an issue with the theme itself but with the way as the OS or softwares paint those areas. That's one of the main annoyances with dark themes.

I have noted another "minor" bug with this theme: there's not a 3rd state for checkboxes. If a checkbox is a tri-state one the 3rd state shows as unchecked. This issue can mislead users and make it hard to distinguish the proper state of a checkbox.

I have noted another minor issue, not sure if it's intended or not though. The icon for Maximize and Restore button are equal, making it hard to distinguish if it's maximized or not when a window is almost full size but not maximized.

I like the attention you have put on the menu font colors.In most other skins i have tried, the window, menu and other colors blend in completely rendering the skin unusable, but this one has really worked for me, thanks!!I also love your other theme "Dota 2 windows theme WIP" that you have for sale. Most of your work here seems rather dark(in colour), I would like to see something warmer maybe light brown or orange brown, light orange.

True enough, most of my themes are rather dark. Only the League of Legends Forum style theme and the Intel theme is light themed currently, but I'll probably make some more light themes in the future.

Reply
:iconyorgash:
yorgash Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2014  Hobbyist Interface Designer
It's in the System Files folder; the clock is handled by timedate.cpl.
You have to take ownership of your \Windows\system32\timedate.cpl, rename it to something like timedate_backup.cpl, then copy mine over.

Seems like Google Drive is using not the same sizing as windows did; normally - since the popup menu background is a single solid color (white) you can't spot it, so probably the devs overlooked this.

This isn't only with Google Drive, Skype's status menu also does that and some other apps too. I don't think it has too much to do with the theme itself but with the way these apps render popup menus.
