  1. @MrGRiM WOW! This is a vast improvement over the default theme and one of the nicest ones in general. Thanks for sharing and thanks also to bigmuscle for letting us beta-test his excellent software.
  2. >only 100 USD So...someone's gonna buy that for him or does he have to cough that up himself? I guess if you donated...
  3. Yep pretty much what you said on the first line, just wanted to make an easy way for anyone to install this to get the largest test ordinance, it's just like everyone who installed the 8.1 preview that is meant to be for IT professionals only, I am sure that 99% of the people using it are not, but at the end of the day, surely it's better to have as many people testing the RC so Big Muscle knows for sure the final version will have no major problems, just because the "non-technical" users cant understand how to add a few registry setting or understand how it works, doesn't mean they cant still provide important and constructive feedback. The people who try Windows 8.1, although they may not be IT professionals, do have the basic competencies required to install and reinstall an operating system. Also, the average naive user has no idea what an operating system is to begin with so that in itself helps to filter out that type of user. However, even naive users know how to install software (double-click, then next -> next -> next). The UI provided by a third party for the Aero Glass application has already done a lot of harm because it installs in a certain way and this thread was burdened by requests for support for what users thought was an issue with Aero Glass but which was in fact a problem caused by the UI and bigmuscles' time was squandered unnecessarily trying to troubleshoot and support users who were using this UI. I hope you have thoroughly tested your installer because if it ends up causing more issues, users are going to flock to this thread thinking it's an Aero Glass issue when it might actually be the installer's issue and bigmuscle may end up spending time trying to solve issues caused by it before discovering that the issue was caused by the installer. Your efforts are appreciated by many, I'm sure, but let's avoid giving bigmuscle extra work to do.
  4. Tusticles, what visual style is that?
  5. NoelC, hmm...there are some things I like about your theme and some things I don't like. Positives: I like the dropdown shadows around the window frame and I like the frame itself Negatives: I dislike the rounded window frame corners and the caption buttons.
  6. Try using native blur
  7. Also, bigmuscle, what is the swatches.reg supposed to do? I've applied it (after setting the permissions of the key in the registry) and I don't notice anything different.
  8. I've just installed additional updates and now, magically, it's working!
  9. I'm having issues with this version. Beta 3 worked fine but I don't get any transparency at all with this version. I've tried adjusting the colour intensity in the Personalisation settings but still none. The taskbar is also completely opaque. Here is my debug log. At the beginning of the file is the following: [0x384] Hook (RegQueryValueExW) installed [0x384] Hook (CreateWindowExW) installed [0x384] Delayed hook (D3D11CreateDevice) installed [0x384] Hook (CreateRoundRectRgn) installed [0x384] DWM1 hooked successfuly [0x384] DWM2 failed (0). [0x384] DWM3 hooked successfuly [0x384] DWM4 hooked successfuly [0x384] DWM5 hooked successfuly [0x384] DWM6 hooked successfuly My C:\Windows\System32\uDWM.dll file version is 6.2.9200.16384 If it means anything, I updated my PC early this morning and updates were installed. debug.log.txt
  10. Thanks a lot for this, ORelio, it is a great improvement!
  11. You should probably just wait for the final version, I think.
  12. I've been absent from the forums for a few days and when I return, it seems as though crap has hit the fan. I am also bemused at the ridiculous level of conceited self-centredness that the fortunate beneficiaries, of your program, are exhibiting. I simply cannot comprehend how adults (for I am assuming we're all adults here) can be so immature and ungrateful. Maybe the people who are complaining about the pre-release message are not native speakers of English and are not understanding what you have typed over and over and over. I'm saddened that these people have ruined the opportunity for us to follow the development of this project and provide feedback, however I respect this decision as I would probably have done the same if I were in your position. I wish you the best with the continued development of the program...
  13. Man it looks beautiful with native blur. That it is my friend! BIG MUSCLE! I love you, mate! Thanks for all the wonderful work, the time and effort, taking time to respond on this forum and being patient with all the complainers. I don't mind the popup, even if you plan to sell this, I will continue to give support in any way I can. Cheers for the achievement and I look forward to the next release!
  14. Nope, I modified the default RTM theme and added the resources from RP. The RP theme applied to RTM have some bugs... Can you share it with us? Sure Download Thanks a lot!
