Aero Glass for Win8 RC4

2,631 posts in this topic

These files have all the same version, 6.2.9200.16384

dwm.exe

dwmapi.dll

dwmcore.dll

dwmredir.dll

Crash and debug files

Please, send me your dwmcore.dll in PM.

It is not about permission and owner of the registry script but of the registry branch where the file is imported to. Normally, user don't have write privilege to the registry key and this privilege can be changed only after taking ownership of the registry key.

About swatches... it's the palette of the colors which you see in the colors control panel. The colors in the script better match to the transparency effect and as a bonus it even changes the color preview to "glassy" look.

And about glitches... don't use native blur rendering.

Thanks for all the feedback.

About the artifacts, I am not using Native Blur. If there are some logs or system information I can provide, let me know. I'll help out as much as possible!

I would like to report that Dx10.1 (and therefore autodetect as well) works again with my HD 3000 chipset. It worked in 0.7 and now in 0.9, but not 0.8. Great progress!

I have not tried Swatches because I initially did not know what they were...heh

Worried about the popup uh? Instead of waiting the final version, if you are so interested, download it and report the bugs to help, you wh*re.

Well the taskbars have much more color than the windows (keep in mind I gave it minimum intensity) and I'd like to be able to have strong transparency with the automatic coloring, but I'd say it's looking pretty darn great. Great job BM!! :thumbup

i have no idea whats happening in the background but 0.9 seems much quicker to me - the effects seem the same but sharper somehow

i keep tring to find a setting that will give me maximum aero and minimum colour on the taskbar with darker colours on the other aero areas but cannot - are the taskbar settings not independant in any way - would it be possible to have that

Don't you have StartIsBack or something which alters taskbar transparency settings? If it is more colorized than it seems that accent has not been disabled for taskbar but my utility should disable it (or better, it forbids enabling it)

Should read properly before asking:

--> you will be unable to change frame color if you don't use AeroGlass utility after importing this registry key

Fine, I find a small problem which can cause that glass can fail under certain versions of dwmcore.dll. The weird thing is that even you have same version 6.2.9200.16384, the file is different than mine. I'm working on a fix.

And about glitches... don't use native blur rendering.

I am not intending to make more discussion about this but since you advice was not to use Native Blur, and I was not using Native Blur, I just want to confirm that I do not have something crazy in my settings. I only ever used Native Blur to test it for at most 5 minutes when you introduced it.

So here is a screenshot showing the version of Aero Glass, the Registry keys and the Glitching in the title bar. I have some degree of control over where the glitch occurs so I put a little pattern into the test area. :)

Again, the glitch occurs a little distance outside the active window but is affected by the active window. Some people said it happens anywhere on the screen, but I have only ever seen the effect on inactive windows that are behind the active window I am currently moving.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/qn4cupfxatcz795/2013-05-05%2013.37.30.jpg

So if we can confirm that my settings themselves are/are not the cause of the glitching, I can continue providing feedback later on with the knowledge that my observations are not biased by an incorrect setup.

Edit: I just had Either(maybe both) DWM or Explorer crash and restart.

Version 0.9 works perfectly for me (save for very minor very occasional light artifacts on the blurred regions of other windows, somewhat away from the edge of an overlapping window, and which go away if you hover over a caption button.)

Looks beautiful (as 0.8 did). There is no difference that I can see (artifacts are the same).

Explorer and Wordpad still do not put a light blur behind window titles, though most other windows do.

Everything's nice and snappy, and changing content behind blurred title bars properly updates.
