I wanted to make some changes, but local internet provider works like a s*** so at least I managed to make it work in old state. So new URL is http://www.glass8.eu and I will make additional changes when my internet connection works properly.

Nope, it is not closed down. Server is down for a few days - is it the reason why people must unleash mass hysteria?

The forum has been strangely quiet recently.

At least, it is not continued to be filled by the mess.


I am extremely busy at this time, so I just quickly read the forum and sometimes try to answer something. I have some Aero Glass ideas in my mind which must be realized very soon, but I am going away for the holidays next week so I am not able to finish it currently.

Posted by raiden89 on 23 June 2014 - 07:17 PM

Hello! This is PwnMaster..... bringing you <removed>! It disables the restrictions imposed by the author on the software. You can get rid of the watermark and even the annoying machine ID nagscreen. Don't believe me? Download it and try it yourself!
The program is still in beta stage so excuse us if any bugs happen (although we thoroughly tested this release).
This has been brought to you by PWNAGE, reverse engineering team. There are 2 people in our team for now (PwnMaster and SpaceGuy), but soon we will grow.

You've been reported. Things like this are not wanted here. Enjoy the ban. Reverse engineering bigmuscle's program is not allowed.

Try this one. You can also copy and past it to the C:\Aero

glass folder location instead of using AeroGlassgui. But both should work.


Edit: If you do that, don't forget to rename the file to win8cp.png.

It's nice that so many offer their opinions to try to be helpful, but did it ever occur to you folks that it's just barely possible that legal pressure has been put on the guy that prevents him from selling it or presenting it just the way that would please your idle musings?  You folks have no idea what tactics go on in the real world of competitive commercial products.  Money talks, BS walks.  Microsoft doesn't WANT Aero Glass to be made available.  They took it out on purpose.  And they have a legal department to further their goals.  Think about it.


And what of it?  It's Big Muscle's product to do with as he pleases.  It's not like he's shoveling marketing BS to try to make it sound like it does something it doesn't; just the opposite - it delivers what it says it does where it counts.  Deal with it.

Aero Glass is loaded with sh-t if you don't donate... :puke:  :puke:  :puke: 
I would like to use Aero Glass without all the sh-t that cames with it, BUT i don't want to donate, i want it for FREE... :w00t: :w00t: :w00t:

Which sh-it do you mean? That all sh-t which comes with your script above which periodically spams all windows with WS_EX_LAYERED message, makes all window content slightly transparent (so you cannot even watch the movie at night, because you see everything beneath), rendering all (even invisible) content on your desktop to totally reduce your PC performance and increase power consumption a lot and with this all, to have only transparent border without any additional features/effects etc.? I can say that your LayeredWindowsHack script is much bigger sh-t than having small watermark on the desktop :whistle:

I don't see how all this whining about donations has anything to do with furthering the development of Aero Glass which this tread was originally intended for.  Instead of continually making useless posts about this, just start up you own thread and discuss it there. Personally I have supported Aero Glass from day one (with beta testing and financial support) and feel its a Great value with enjoying my Windows experience on 8.1, If anyone wants to fine fault then complain to Microsoft for removing Aero Glass and not Big Muscle who brought it back for all of us to Enjoy!

#1080278 Aero Glass for Win8.1 1.2.5

Posted by bigmuscle on 13 June 2014 - 01:54 AM

I still have not managed glowing titles in folders, it's the final unresolved issue on my end. Please look into it.


I don't know what the developer is expecting really... I donated 1€ and taking into account that this is a free-time project with no guaranteed support I don't see why that donation isn't acceptable. Even if PayPal takes 50 cents in fees (which they don't), it still is a good value, and I don't know why I didn't get a key. If you don't want to commercialize this, fine, but at least give a key to everyone who donates you money... I find that policy really shady, and I don't feel encouraged at all to donate again. Good luck with the project though...

Theoretically, I have no problem to give an access to unlimited version to anyone who supports with anything. Practically, I tried this at the beginning and there were many users who were abusing my system by donating 0.01€ and similar in the style "ha ha, I donated as small as possible, bigmuscle gets nothing and I will get full version". Since I want to avoid this unfair behaviour, I set up the lower bound of the donation. I will not mention the minimal value publicly (because there would be again many users who would abuse it) but I can say that I think it is very low and everyone should dig into his conscience, to say what's his intention of donation and then select the fair value.

I installed aero glass on the new laptop, then I transferred over the licence key file from my current desktop (in which I have no issues with the program) to the folder on the laptop and the watermark was still there.  I then tried to download the key from the website using the email address, but I can't even download the key from the website anymore.  It says "Temporarily disabled due to internal maintenance".

Maybe you should have donated 70.00 to MS FOR Windows 7 or to remove timebomb from Windows 8 Release Preview for you :lol: :lol: :lol: :P


Sorry to dhjohns, he's cool.  Don't get me wrong, I think this project is really good and I like the blur on it.  I just can't stand the watermark and popup honestly.  I just hope bigmuscle doesn't take too long to get the donation/ key system working again.

#1060900 OldNewExplorer - make your 8.1 explorer work like Win7/8 one

Posted by Tihiy on 22 November 2013 - 03:34 AM

What is it?

OldNewExplorer is the Windows 8.1 (and Windows 8) shell extension / tweaker which can undo "improvements" to file browsing made in newer Windows version. Everything is optional for your liking.


- Restore devices / drives grouping

Everything is 'Devices and drives'. That's stupid! O-N-E can restore grouping which made sense in Win7/8.

- Restore libraries / remove folders

Remove all those folders which were unoptionally added into Windows 8.1 This PC folder and put the libraries back to their place, without registry hacking / breaking apps.

- Restore command bar / remove Ribbon

Because some people consider it an abomination.

- Restore details pane at bottom

Same reason; reclaim useful horizontal space.

- Improve styling

Get rid of some Win7 stuff here and there; improve styling with some built-in visual styles.

For themers / skinners, O-N-E can help to override a lot of hardcoded styling in Windows 8, maybe even Start screen!







100% FREE


Stupid FAQ

- This is a TEST version, no installer. Potentially dangerous too!

- This is for Windows 8.1. Also should work for Windows 8 as well, though 8.1 options do not apply there;

- All but class drive grouping is not enabled by default. If something does not apply, try logging off / restarting explorer.exe;

- Install is for all users, settings are per-user.


For long thoughful posts use email.

The sense of the "Cancel" button is not to revert to default values but to restore value which had been there before you changed it ;-) I'm not sure about your opinion - 100% of all windows are being closed by [X] button in titlebar, so why would it be more intuitive to close it via any additional button?
