    How to make a Visual Style for Windows Vista
    (all rights reserver to the original creator from aeroxperiece.com maded by UK.Intel™


    (sorry by the english ... mas acho k assim todos precebem xD)
    (later i will put this all in portuguese to you all)

    Getting Started

    1. Download and Install The uxTheme Patch from this LINK
    This will allow you to apply custom themes

    2. Download and Install my Theme Template from this LINK
    This will install a copy of the original aero theme and place all the required files into the correct locations with Jemaho’s Improved Shellstyle, ready for modifying.

    3. Download and Install Restorator 2007 from this LINK
    This is your Tool for extracting and replacing resources from within the .msstyle and shellstyle.dll

    4. Download and Install Alpha Image Convertor from this LINK
    This will convert your images to Alpha Aero.msstyle Compatible Images

    5. Buy and Install a Paintshop Program
    This will be your main Image editing software, I recommend Adobe Photoshop CS3
    Or Corel PaintShop Pro XI



    Naming Your Theme Files

    If you have installed my Theme Template, Navigate to C:Windows\Resources\Themes.

    You will need to rename the following files to the name you wish to call your theme.
    I recommend you name all the files the same.

    • Template.Theme
    • Template Folder
    • Template.msstyle (Located within the Template folder)
    • Template.msstyle.mui (Located within Template folder/en-US)


    Editing Your Theme File

    1. Navigate to C:Windows\Resources\Themes.
    2. Right Click on your Theme file and select Open with Notepad

    Here you will see many changes you can make to you theme.
    For Example: Cursors, Wallpaper, Title bar Text Colours, Padded Border Width (frame width)

    I have Bolded only the IMPORTANT parts that you need to Edit
    Display Name, Visual Style Location, Wallpaper Location

    Now you have edited those 3 important parts, Save and Exit the file.


    Creating your Style (Editing the .msstyle and shellstyle)

    • Navigate to C:Windows\Resources\Themes.

    Inside your themes folder right click on the .msstyle and select Open with Restorator 2007

    Now you will see the contents of the .msstyle
    All of the images are located in the IMAGE Folder and one is located in the STREAM Folder.
    (See the Next section “Resource Locations” for a rough guide to show you what images to edit)

    Extract the Individual images (or the entire image folder)
    Drag and Drop to your desktop

    Edit the images in your Paintshop program
    If your Paintshop program does not make Alpha aero compatible images then this is when you need to use the Alpha Image convertor.
    If your image is not Alpha compatible then you will notice a horrible white background when applied to your theme


    Replace the Images back into the folder they came from
    (e.g. .msstyle\Image) by using Restorator 2007 to drag and drop

    Save the .msstyle in Restorator 2007

    Apply your theme to see changes
    Control Panel\Personalization\Theme Apply

    Repeat the Above Process for the Shellstyle.dll
    (Windows\Resources\Themes\**Your Theme Folder**\Shell\NormalColor\Shellstyle.dll)


    Resource Locations

    This is just a rough guide of some of the Common Images you can edit to make your style, there are Hundreds of images you can edit and most of them are used for both aero and basic.


    KEY: Aero Basic Both

    lol? como deixar o pc lento.. vai vendo esta secção melhor.. é o melhor a fazer para começares..

    Msstyles não deixam o windows lento.. substituem os recursos existentes

    Yap. e praticamente o mesmo que o cairo e proteus..

    Substituem explorer.exe por outro e por vezes com mais visual e menos recursos.

    olha por exemplo o proteus_shell:
    (original de ~patrickgs)


    Still waiting for a Shell Alternative? A new project is starting. "Proteus Shell" is a Windows Shell Alternative which will completely replace explorer.exe. This means you get a new desktop, taskbar, and File Browser.

    Proteus Shell will be designed to make it easier to use a PC. It will be faster than Windows Explorer and have some great Features. And it will be highly customizeable!

    exacto.. mas isso é outro ponto :p não tem nada a ver com um visual style ;)
     
  7. Thawolf

    Thawolf Power Member

    como assim?
    o proteus e cairo sao visual tb. sao feitos da mesma base e com os mesmos objectivos . alterar o explorer.exe ... estes apenas vem com funciunalidades extra tipo o cover flow no proteus.

    Romani48 Power Member

    hum?
    proteus, cairo, litestep = Shell Replacements, substituem ou complementam o explorer.. é como um gestor de janelas

    Isto é um guia de como fazer um Estilo visual MSStyles, ou seja o tema usado pelo explorer :p
