The Windows 8 theme with some minor changes.

Different subtle shadows around the windows.
A little of glow on the window caption.
Changed the "waiting" animation to the one in Windows 8.

Насколько я понял, закругленные углы не имеют отношение к ресурсу.

 

As far as I understand, rounded corners without regard to the resource.

 

У меня тоже не очень, с английским.

 

Смотрите первый пост в этой теме.

 

See first post in this thread.

Напишу по Русски,кто захочет нажмёт кнопку онлайн-переводчика :D

Как раз этот ресурс и отвечает,в том числе за конфигурацию рамок окон.Вот как я отредактировал его(тот что показывал выше):

И вот что получилось,это с первого раза и есть небольшие неровности,но это потом подправлю.Вроде неплохо вышло,а были абсолютно прямые углы.

Rudsec, for slightly rounded corners try one of theme resource files with Aero Glass for Win 8.1:

I imported the [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics] registry section from an export from a Windows 7 system where they had been made smaller with the UI.

 

I have a file that will set those metrics as part of some extras I provide with one of my books:

 

http://www.ProDigita...panionTools.zip

 

Double click the file "SetWindowMetrics.reg" from that archive (after examining it carefully of course).

Can someone help me with a little problem? It seems my explorer.exe windows can't display the caption title glow ...every other program window does

 

Attached File  Untitled.jpg   45.31KB   9 downloads

 

I've tried many atlas images, changed aeroglass options but nothing changed, glow applied everywhere but explorer.

 

What could be the cause?

It's normal, all ribbon windows don't use theme atlas glow but another glow in the visual style. If you want glow in ribbon windows, you must install UxStyle and use a custom theme on your system ;)

Nicely done. Just a suggestion, maybe you should include that link in your signature (something like "Aero Glass FAQs. Read before asking").

I'm having an issue with the custom theme atlases, like the Crystal8 one.  Please help?

Sorry to hear you're having problems.  You might get more on-target help if you elaborate a bit...

The problem is that I am using the custom theme atlases, not the windows CP or RP.  And when I trying them out, the buttons glitch badly

Maybe you're not using the right terminology...

 

A theme atlas is a collection of graphic resources specifically crafted to work with a particular theme, and can be inserted quite easily (and without introducing any problems with system protection) by the Aero Glass program simply by setting a registry entry.

 

A theme is a larger thing, involving more files and other 3rd party software beyond just the Aero Glass product.

 

The theme atlas has to be crafted to exactly match the theme.

 

We've pretty much reached about the end of my knowledge about full themes, but my understanding is that this thread describes replacement theme atlas files for use with the out-of-box Windows 8 standard theme.

Noel described the difference between whole themes and just the resource file we're calling an atlas here; applying the atlas to a theme other than the one specified (in this case Win8.x) will get you graphical artifacts.

 

Just like you can't apply the Win10 atlas to Win8.1 (it won't glitch out completely due to the way the Win10 is an expansion of the Win8.x, but you won't get those big shadows Win10 has since they're outside of where the Win8.x theme looks for them), you can't apply an atlas for the default, like those in this thread, to some other theme.

 

The atlas files in this thread are applied using the AeroGlassGUI.exe tool, not in the Personalize section of Desktop preferences. They can also be set with registry values directly.
