I didn't work for me. I ran the patcher, patched all 3 files, restarted, dropped the file and folder into the windows themes folder, double clicked the metro theme file, the system says its changing themes....then nothing changes. I don't know what I am doing wrong.

Love it... I've just a problem, my screen is 1366x768 and some images (like the one in the control panel) are distorted. That's normal, I know, but can't you make this theme also for "strange" screen resolution, please?

(sorry my english...)

Hey man.

You have done a great work. But, I saw the start orb and it's not yours. It's from: [link] . I'm sure of that because is the start orb that I'm using right now on my PC.

figured out my difficulties with the shell32 and explorerframe files, i guess i must have used the wrong ones. anyways i never really said how much i love this theme. major props to you, usually i just use a theme for a couple weeks without editing any of the nav buttons or shell/explorer files or anything, but i've stuck with this theme for a long time, i really love it. good job man, keep up the good work :)

Hi Jaycee13,

Thank you so much for your efforts and such active support.

I am combining this with Rainmeter Omnimo and getting just fantastic results.

I have a question:

I am on Win7 x64, did the whole patching, changing files. My menu items on mouseover look like this [link] - Seems kind of odd, the mouseover menu position and font change. Is it supposed to be like this or is there some wrong config in my setup. How can I change this setting alone? I'd like something flat and sharp.

Thanks a lot and good luck with further updates!

B.

Thanks for using the theme.. the blue/orange was part of the VS.. I'll try if i can update it... Anw, if ur using style builder, u can easily edit that.. :)

:iconbhaveshdhaka:
bhaveshdhaka Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2011
Thank you for your reply Jaycee.
I got StyleBuilder, but the interface is a bit overwhelming for me!
I just want the font on mouseover to not decrease, rest orange shade etc should remain the same. Where can I find that option in StyleBuilder? I believe it should just be a little setting, but there are just too many options in there!

At present on mousever the item in a menu changes its font and becomes smaller. Ideally I'd like it to remain the same size, the rest blue/orange highlight is just fine.

Here is hoping you can help me in the right direction.

Thanks,
B.

The highlight color in the right click menu, is it supposed to be blue and orange? I think it would look better and more unifying if it a a solid block of blue. Maybe its hard to imagine.
Great work otherwise. Im into graphics a lot. I combined this with Omnimo and got splendid results.
