It's a heavily modified version of an old Windowblinds skin".  The skin was originally created by "007tinar" on Deviantart's website.  I modified it to match my MKANET color scheme (black transparent glass / neon blue LED).  I was never able to get a hold of "007tinar" to ask for permission to share my customized version.

 

http://007tinar.deviantart.com/art/INVI-4V-69227793 (original WindowVista Windowblinds skin).

 

I dont think there's any way to port Windowblinds skin resources to a themeatlas file.  If anyone want access to the images/resources for the custom theme I use, let me know.

 

My custom skin heavily relies on Aero Blur effect (so transparency could actually be practical/useable when multi-tasking multiple windows).  Since Windowblinds decided to only support basic transparency (WITHOUT Aero Blur) under Windows 8.x, it made Titlebar and Start Menu transparency unusable/impractical/hard-to-read.

 

I may just have to accept defeat; and, just not use transparency.  It seems like the default Windows desktop UI is getting uglier and uglier with every generation. :(

 

 

@mkanet2 can you tell how exactly is called this theme? http://i62.tinypic.com/1zqy4av.png .

Does anyone have a Win10 atlas that shows guides for all the zone edges? Since you're all making themes already, I imagine you've already figured out where all the boundaries for each Atlas object is. I can't figure it out for the life of me and keep getting lots of glitches. =/

If I have some time, I can create small application which returns the rectangle in atlas belonging to the part which you specify as parameter.

That would beat having to put a colored gradient across the whole theme atlas to derive what UI elements turn which colors from what positions in the theme atlas...  :)

Sure this has probably been asked before, but other that using a 3rd party visual style theme is there anyway to add "glow" on the buttons of a Theme Atlas png file?

What do you mean "glow" on the buttons of a Theme Atlas png file?

Cause hockninc's Theme Atlas png has glow on the buttons.

If you make your heading type white, you can see sort of a light glow background.

Of course, this doesn't include windows exploer headings.

That's when you would need 3rd party visual style theme.

Maybe I'm missing something.

I imagine DP means a glow "around" the button being hovered-over (see post 76, above).

 

With the stock theme the theme atlas doesn't have anything that gets composited around a button being hovered-over.

This is good but I like the other one better.

I have always liked the Win7/Vista raised buttons look more than the flat ones.

Now, if you could make it have round corners it would be even better.

I know some people like square corners better, so offer them both.

 

Thanks,

DW

One could probably make the buttons a little smaller (shorter) so as not to fill all the space that's composited, then make the highlight buttons have color that extends beyond the edges when hovered-over.  But it couldn't be a difference very many pixels, and it wouldn't extend above the window edge. 

 

It would probably only serve to make choosing a button a hair more frustrating, since the active region for the control would extend past the visible edges.  That's kind of what's wrong with the borderless window concept.
