Experimental atlas for Creator Update?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Wondering if someone has some atlas updated/fixed for Creator Update. @NoelC , maybe? :3

Actually, some of the Atlas I had for Anniversary Update, still works in CU, but they "paint" the windows border, which is not present anymore in "vanilla" windows and show border even on start, which is quite ugly and pointless.

Yea, I agree.  The borders are pointless, and quite ugly.  You can try playing around with the .layout files to get rid of them.

I could try... but to be honest I'm not really sure what has to be changed in .layout and if the png should be fixed too. AeroGlass, even without windows border, is still nice :3

*EDIT*

Ok, it's an experiment. Win8rp for creator update.

I simply "disabled" some lines appending a # where it draws frame border. Seems fine, maybe I try with others atlas.

Png is still the same of the original version. I upload for convenience.

I modified this atlas to have no borders and subtle smoke tint to title bars no borders screenshot .  No layout file needed, just apply with AeroglassGUI tool.

Thanks for share :) 

Yes, probably there are several ways to "fix" the atlas for CU.

I chose the layout way as I'm not really good in editing png resources.

Removing border padding with winaero tweaker > windows border option it's also useful to reuse older atlas/rounder corners - like the one for seven style - but it still show a small border, and I prefer the borderless layout.

The last theme atlas I published for Win 10 still works just fine for the Creator's Update as far as I know.

Here's the RoundedCorners atlas I am currently using with the Aero 7 theme by Sagorpirbd...  To be honest I've forgotten whether it can work with other themes.  The .layout file is supposed to make these theme atlases portable.

Yes, atlas can be used with almost every theme. And can be taken from theme itself for best result, which is quite cool :D

Of course, 7/rounded atlas are usually better with 7 themes - for a frame rounded layout; while 10/square atlas are better with 10 themes - for a squared frameless layout.

Ok, so will the current 1.5.3 version fully work with Creators Update?  I'm using the paid version with the donation.key.  I'm using the  Sagorpirbd Windows 7 theme.  I've been hesitant to upgrade to the creators update because I heard that aeroglass doesn't fully work on it yet.  But if I apply the creators update, with the rounded corners atlas, will it work ok, with the full transparent,  clear aero effects? Or will there be any problems I should be aware of?

Well, 1.5.3 works partially with 1703. 

1.5.4 Beta version works nice - only UWPs apps are missing back button on left.

Tried sagorbird theme+atlas+glass+uwp frame+uxtsb everything seems to be in place.

Of course, you'll see two/three debug window also with .key (but can be moved on desktop 2)

Thanks for the reply.  I think I'll wait until 1.5.4 officially releases before updating to the Creators Update.  Probably crazy for asking, but is there any ETA as to when it will be removed from beta, for official release?

No ETA. Usually an experimental aeroglass stay for a while - even months - before going stable.

It need time to be updated with MS OS changes :3
