Aero Glass for Win8 RC4

2,631 posts in this topic

as hard as i try with Direct3D i cannot get it as i want it as well - i know/understand that thats a theme thing - the theme i am using will not work in Direct3D - BUT it works for me so i continue with2D - i accept the arguments that 3D is better but if both can be incorporated then its a user choice - surely in the end having both modes will cause less hassle - yes put a heath warning that 3D is not as good as 2D and no support will be given - but leave it at that

the problem is, that I don't know which colorization settings I have to change to get the same look. When I use the same values for D3D, I only see minimal blur.

yeah, I admit that colorization settings is a bit tricky because it is not documented anywhere. But you can get nice results by playing with it. Also, the current blur effect is not the final appearance. It should have much more blur but if I use the blur weights from Win8 RP, I don't get the same result as it should be. I need to play with it more...

The border edge (the black line in the image) is stored in theme sprite too together with the content of the border. There are several parts - 4 corners, 2 horizontal and 2 vertical segments. And all doubled - active and inactive border.

Thanks I think I found it

It uses some trick to add these w7-like glass lines. I'm willing to bet removing the sharp corners will do the trick

Yeah that was it rounded corners are working now, but without the glass effect for now

I want rounded corners, tried to do it myself but the border files I found in .msstyle were already rounded and didn't worked, any help? What files should I change?

There is also Shadowless Window in Frames that has square corners in W8's theme. Otherwise I am not sure why it doesn't work.

Could you share your theme, you posted a screenshot earlier.

--edit--

Nvm, I found the theme, I have rounded borders now :D

finally found a theme that works for me and able to use D3D - sure its been asked or commented on but how do i adjust blur - if i use the tweaker it has no effect - is it still an adjustable setting - maybe its still my theme

I find that GUI quite helpful for the basic settings, not to have to tamper with the registry for standard tweaks and turning on and off easily. So far it is being kept up to date with the latest version of dwm.dll...

I have gone back to 0.6 so I can stop it interrupting movie watching and game playing. Loving the progress though.
