Aero Glass for Win8 RC4

2,631 posts in this topic

It depends on used wallpaper, but default wallpaper with roses generates these values:

AfterGlowBalance = 7

BlurBalance = 31

ColorBalance = 62

Color/AfterGlow = 0xaf34bbeb

Thanks a lot! biggrin.gif

If one wants to remove these tweaks, how does one do that? (Just realised to my dismay that I don't have a restore point available).

There is nothing to remove except the changes you made manually on your own. The utility does not perform any permanent changes in your system. Ad install registry script - just reverse all values 0x1 -> 0x0, 0x0 -> 0x1, DLL name -> empty.

BTW, here is image resource which I promised earlier. It is nothing more than regular Win8 theme with caption glow effect. Specify the file name in HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\DWM:CustomThemeResource and restart DWM process. You must be using default Windows 8 theme else your captions will be corrupted.

Tried to enable rounded corners, it works well except that a rectangle is still drawn around the windows ^^

(I prefer non-rounded windows, but I was just trying, to see if it works)

As I wrote earlier, it works as expected. You just have a theme which have rectangular edges in its texture.

Do you know of any round edged theme Bigmuscle? Or anyone else?

Thanks for the beta, it's very well!

However, there is a problem for me with Battlefield 3. There already was such a problem, which was fixed in an earlier preview I didn't test. I tested the beta 1 today and there is still/again a lag while moving the mouse. If I enable raw input it's not that much as it is with disabled raw input but still unplayable. ;)

I hope you can find a fix for that!

Greetings from Germany

CustomThemeResource should be a string value and the data is the file name or the whole path?

Bigmuscle, I have to thank you very much. After actually using a Windows 8 tablet, I actually like the flat UI much better on a tablet, but on the laptop I upgraded last November from Windows 7, this utility really brings back a lot. Once again, thank you.

Now, not to be the WPF police, but WPF windows are still not compatible with this. I am guessing you are still using layered windows? Don't rush or anything, the graphical glitches don't impair functionality, they just look out of place. As far as I know, neither WPF windows no UAC prompts can made to be layered.

Thank you!

So has anyone figured out what you need to edit in WSB to make the corners actually round? Making caption buttons round was easy, but the corners are hidden somewhere

I can't find how to add caption glow either. It's not present in W8.
