Aero DS style for Windows 7 by DanStudio Aero DS style for Windows 7 by DanStudio
Hi! Thanks for being interested in my style. As it was my first style (released on Novemver 8, 2009), this deviation is kept for a history ^^ it means that it is not updated and you can not download it, but

THERE IS A LINK TO AN UPDATED Aero DS style: [link]




10,632 / 1,581




Hey.. That's it. My first attempt to make a style for Windows 7. And yet its first public release.

First of all now it is just a default Aero modification.
I wanted to make a style that would recall some classic Vista's aero elements.. well, if I'm failed - that's not a tragedy. And yes, that taskbar with buttons was FULLY drawn my me.

Somewhere buggy and incomplete, but can already be applied for everyday use... Unfortunately, it has known problems with big taskbar. I'll fix it soon. Just let you know I developed it for small taskbar from the beginning. There are still A LOT of things to be changed, so that's not probably the final design idea, it could be changed significantly.

I didn't find the best colorization variant, it looks good in black and in transparent variants and on some more even, so you are free to choose the best that suits you.

I would like to turn this into an independent project, epic and solid style of high quality. Wish me good luck :)




Thanks for testing! Your comments are highly appreciated and welcome. I need to know what you are thinking about this. Please, feel free to leave your opinion.

it was done via "Mavis UP button", a standalone application. Works fine, but unfortunately i've got some Explorer crashes with it on Windows 7.

oh thanks, it looks cool, but.. unfortunately my theme does not support any taskbar placement except for the bottom one. So there it is just a default one. The only little difference could be with windows. But nothing more.

btw, I'll publish an update soon.

here is a screenshot
-of a bug hovering over a taskbar icon
-and a request :p

[link]

on the bottom you see strange colors when being over an icon in the taskbar

in the bottom-middle you see that programs with windows in it normally still use the original blue win7 basic theme. Perhaps you can edit it in your style, too :)
Its also in the msstyle-file

hey I've just redrawn the whole taskbar again, so I hope this bug won't happen again.

there'll be an update this week, so please, my friend, have some time to test it.
thanks in advance! :)

this taskbar placement bug is known, but unfortunately I won't fix it in next release, I have some other things to work with.

but later on.. for sure!


p.s. by the way, what's with that 'coloured lines' thing? I'm afraid I didn't get what you said (sorry, my english is not excellent :/ ), could you post a screenshot of it?

However is now when i'm seeing that there are some tiny bugs around here. The new taskbar style is working only for when is on the bottom. I'm getting 'coloured lines' when scroliing on the taskbar's items :) Buuuuut it's a nice work....

well i'm still waiting for something original for all :D Keep it up!

:icondanstudio:
DanStudio Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2009
hmm that coloured lines is a strange thing.
I do not know how why it appears, and it never appeared for me :/

anyway, I'll try to find the answer ..

i know it sounds stupid now...:jarkorig: (or who am i to judge that well)... though i think it's more a 'Nice'/'Good' than an 'Awesome' (the Opera's button capt my attention - i thought that was the colour of a taskbar's item when it is selected...lol i forgot about the fact that the printscreen comes from a Windows 7 :lauging: mmm :dead: and the colour derives from the icon's color).
But I'm keeping my "Awesome" for a possible future theme you'll make. sorry again. Keep it uppp! :( :)

hmm thanks for your post, I realize that in some way it is not fair, and agree with you, but I thought it is too early to make an epic preview when I prepared a preview image, so just did this *trick* :/

thank you for your support, I'll try to make it for real "awesome" word. At least I wish to do so :)

What program do you use to make visual styles.

DanStudio Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2009
restorator 2007 + I had a great opportunity to edit it with vista style builder.

Of course the second one is handy, so if you can let yourself buy it - go for it :)

:icondanstudio:
DanStudio Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2009
maybe

i think it is too early to speak about Vista port, the style needs significant changes and a large amount of fixes.. and then it would be no trouble to make a port i guess.

well i don't know. I do not have Vista to test it, so.. can not guarantee anyting :/
don't you want to upgrade to Win7 ? not just to use the style, W7 is better in overall, i think.. tests speak also :)
