Midnight Glass Nature Theme


60950

This is a mod of my Midnight Theme that I made for use with Full Glass, theme still looks good without it as well but has some bits that you can only appreciate with it on, theme also come with an optional Nature Themepack I put together to go along with the theme, all wallpapers are 1920x1200 and all were resized and modified in Photoshop.

Hope you enjoy this theme and please leave a comment. :)

Theme Includes:


Midnight Glass Visual Style
Midnight Visual Style
Nature Themepack
2 Start Orbs
Shell32 images for Control panel
Desktop Gadgets (Customized by Sergio Garcia of SG9 Designs)
VistaGlazz to patch your system files
FullGlass Mod for full transparency
Eurostyle font for System Tray Clock (Optional)
System Clock for x86 & x64
Black Media Player Skin

To have your taskbar centered like in the image above.

All you need to do is unlock the taskbar and right click on it go to toolbars/add new, and them make a new folder somewhere and call it blank for example, then select that folder for your new toolbar.

You then need to right click on the new toolbar and select view text/title and deselect those 2 options now repeat all those steps(you can use the same blank folder again) and place the blank toolbars on either side of your main Taskbar group and slide the taskbar to a central position.

Once you have it where you want lock the taskbar again (note that it move a little when you lock the taskbar so some fine tuning may be needed), and now you have a centered Taskbar.

If you like you can also make the blank folder hidden to remove it from view.

Taskbar will not display middle bar if you have your options set to never combine.

Always combine, hide labels should be selected.

Also if you are using any extra Toolbars you need to make sure they are displaying small icons, but only if you have them all on a single row, if you have your taskbar expanded to 2 bars it will display normally again.

Great theme!

But only one bug, I think...

In the top of the start menu left to the user pic, the colors look's a little bit cut.

Is that the look of the theme or is it a little bug?


BTW: Can you please tell me how you change the user frame of start menu like your's?

Yeah your right, it does have line there, it's because of the way the right side gets resized and because there is a gradient in the colour you get that line there when the images don't match up right.

You will need to edit the explorer.exe to use the custom user pic frame, if you know how to change the start button then you should have no problem because it is exactly the same thing you need to do.

Here is a tutorial to change the start button if it helps. http://virtualcustoms.net/showthread.php/27737-Guide-to-Changing-your-Start-Orb-Button

So can you please upload a version without the color bug? I mean complete black on top of the start menu?

Also, can you please upload or give me a link to your user pic frame?

Thanks!!!

EDIT:

So, there is alo a bug in the start menu. Under "All Programs" in the list, the last entry (for me WinRAR) don't show completly.

Does anyone know why this theme and only this theme seems to cause my computer's performance to slow down? I occasionally get a message from windows saying my current color scheme should be adjusted for better performance. My graphics are not great, being that they are integrated but with 3gb of RAM which i never max out i find it strange that this theme causes my computers performance to slow. i have used other dark and glass themes in the past and never had any issues. Its strange and annoying since I love this theme but the downgrade in performance i see at times makes it hard to work.

It might be because the images are getting bigger in this theme so I can have more detail like in the explorer frames and maybe you have not got a good enough graphics card to handle rendering the larger images used.

Very Important!!!

You must enable the use of custom themes by either patching your system with Universal Theme Patcher or use UxStyle Core which runs as a service, either way will have the same result but UxStyle Core does not change any system files and is also update proof.

Universal Theme Patcher: [URL]http://virtualcustoms.net/showthread.php/29058-Universal-ThemePatcher-by-SumoSoft

UXStyle Core: http://virtualcustoms.net/showthread.php/31514-Uxstyle-Core-Theme-Patcher-0.2.1.1.1




How do I install this theme? I installed the Dark 7 theme no problem, however this one will not show up under personalize. I'm running & x64 ultimate if that helps

You may want to try changing the text colour in the advanced appearance settings in the colour personalization menu.

Not sure which blue shine you are referring to though, if you give me a screen shot I may be able to do something for you.

Replace the Midnight Glass.msstyles in the Midnight Glass theme folder C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\Midnight, you will need to have another theme selected and you will also have to log off and log on again before it will let you replace the file.

I have a MP skin I am using on Deathstar if you like, if not I can mod one of the others if you prefer.

Really awesome theme, but there is one thing i cant stand... My Photoshop and some other apps decided they will take some of the theme's formating, resulting in a black skinned "drop box" (you know, that kind of a menus you get when clicking on "File" or clicking with RMB in Windows) with nearly unreadable content as well as pitch black text boxes... I cant currently post a screenshot since I stopped using it because of that, hope you can imagine it. So question is: is there a way i can forbid those apps from using that formating? Or is there any way to change those colors to gray for example, so its at least readable in the apps? I wonder if i am the only one with this kind of a problem -_-

Really awesome theme, but there is one thing i cant stand... My Photoshop and some other apps decided they will take some of the theme's formating, resulting in a black skinned "drop box" (you know, that kind of a menus you get when clicking on "File" or clicking with RMB in Windows) with nearly unreadable content as well as pitch black text boxes... I cant currently post a screenshot since I stopped using it because of that, hope you can imagine it. So question is: is there a way i can forbid those apps from using that formating? Or is there any way to change those colors to gray for example, so its at least readable in the apps? I wonder if i am the only one with this kind of a problem -_-

In a word, No! Gimp has a similar problem which is really annoying when you're trying to find your way round it for the first few times!

The applications in question understandably use common controls in their programming which means the only way to affect them would be to hack the Windows system files. Unfortunately nobody has yet discovered where the text settings for this (and many other) aspects of the UI actually live. Microsoft, it seems, doesn't want you to have a dark theme! So you either have to live with it or find something less problematical.

Damn you, Microsoft! :cry: So the only way is to make the text boxes and menus somewhat gray or white in the theme itself... But i guess that would mean too much work and who knows how would it look. :( Anyway thanks for the answer, I am going to cry a little in the darkest corner of my room... alone... without a theme I love... (ok, maybe not)

That was because there was a new shell32.dll in one of the recent windows updates and it's not very common, I think there have been 2 updates to it in the whole time 7 has been out, so yeah I know it's a pain but it does not happen very often.

Icons are not installed with the themes, you must install those after, the easiest way to do that is using 7tsp with the icon packs here http://virtualcustoms.net/forumdisplay.php/850-7tsp-Icon-Packs

Hey guys, got a problem and it's driving me crazy. I just stumbled upon this theme, and I absolutely love it, but when I attempt to use it, basically it will only work in classic mode. No aero at all. Really getting on my nerves because I want to use this theme. I have tried pretty much everything I could think of, re-patching all dll's, etc, etc. Just wondering if anybody else has run into this problem?

Yeah it was already patched, even re-patched. My system is a beast. Quad core with 8 gig of ram, radeon 5870. It was ONLY this one theme that wouldnt work correctly. Probably tried about 20 others and had no problems. I was actually due to format, so I went ahead and formatted last night. Applied the theme once I had a clean windows install, and it's working great. Weird. I honestly do not know what it was. Thanks anyway though :D

... also, I have provided a screenshot of my 'Computer' explorer window and have noticed that it does NOT look like the one shown in sample shots you have provided (notice the used/free space bar, you can also notice the 3 'empty' close/max./min. boxes I referred to previously).

Hi,

vielen Dank für das wunderschöne thema. Funktioniert alles bestens außer das Aero bekomme ich nicht zum laufen.
Habe Windows 7 eXtreme x64, 2x Radeon DH 6970 im Crossfire, i5 3570k, 16GB RAM, Samsung evo SSD 500GB.
Bei manchen anderen themes funktioniert aero, auch fullglass. Zum Beispiel geht VS se7en, Dark Pearl VS, BlackmetalFG und auch das Standard Win 7 aero, aber weder win 7 eXtreme aero, sun V2 oder Midnight oder midnight glass funktionieren. Es bleibt einfach ein Basisdesign mit Kontrast. Ist alles gepatched und der Resourcechanger ist installiert. Habe es mit 3 verschiedenen AMD CCC (12.4, 13.9 + 14.4) ausprobiert. Habe es ohne crossfire probiert. Habe mehrmals den Leistungsindex neu berechnen lassen. Habe die Registry Werte unter HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\DWM\ überprüftund den Desktop Dienst uxsms neu gestartet. Habe im Wartungscenter automatisch nach Problemen von Aero gesucht. Habe eine andere Windows 7 Installation auf anderer Platte ausprobiert, alles ohne Ergebnisse. Aero ist aber fundamental für dieses coole theme. Für Vorschläge wäre ich dankbar.

Sorry of course, I forgot. First let me thank Mr Grim for this wonderful theme. Everything works fine, except that I cant get Aero to work. Here my system: I got Windows 7 eXtreme x64 , 2x Radeon HD6970 in Crossfire, i5 3570K, 16GB RAM , 500GB SSD Samsung evo. The curios thing is that some other themes are working with aero, also in fullglass. For example VS se7en , Dark Pearl VS , BlackmetalFG and also the standard Win 7 aero theme are working fine, but neither win 7 eXtreme aero, sun V2 or Midnight or midnight glass does work. It simply remains in basic design with contrast. Everything is patched and the Resource Changer is installed. I've tried it with 3 different AMD CCC (12.4 , 13.9 + 14.4) . Then I've tried it without crossfire . I repeatedly let the performance index run (Sometimes it crashed during the Windows Aero perfomence tests). I've checked the registry values ​​under HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\DWM\ and restarted the desktop service uxsms. Then in the maintenance center I've searched automatically for problems with Aero. All this without any results. I have tried an other Win7 installation on another disk, but there was no Aero working at all. Unfortunately Aero is fundamental for this cool theme. For any suggestions I would be grateful.

Fixed:
Finally I've found the solution to my problem:
If you have options for disabled, like a bigger dpi-fontsize enabled, the windowdesign is automatically set to Basic design. If you set all these options to standard, you can jump between Aero and Basic design by hitting Shift+Alt+Print. Then finally aero and fullglass is working.

Again a lot of thanks to Mr Grimm for this nice theme, I am now very happy with it!

Excuse me kind sir, but how does one go about utilizing the Windows Media Player Black Skin?

I tried taking ownership of both files in win\sys32 and syswow64, backing up old *.dll's and moving the x64 dll's into said directories (even tried moving x86 dll into sys32), but I get an error saying it's not the correct version.

Thanks for this awesome theme pack btw! 3 themes in one! I would rename Nature to Nature2 tho, since there's already a nature theme pack that comes with Win7.
