    [How To] Create a custom 7tsp pack

    Here a tutorial on how to make a custom pack.
    This is also the place for questions and support for your custom pack.

    Regards..

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    It's possible to create your own custom Theme/Icon pack's and apply them with the 7tsp GUI.
    Modifications can include icons, bitmaps, a theme, side panel, logon screen and task manager colors.
    Dialog window changes, menu start button, copy animation colors etcetc.

    Extract an existing pack of choice, replace all or some of the resources with your own and/or just remove any unwanted file or mod...
    re compress the files and folders again with a compression tool (7zip or zip)
    and name it "7tsp_my_custom_pack_v0.1.7z" ("my_custom" can be "any_name" (no spaces))

    pack.ini: Some settings explained to create a pack,

    [Base Pack]
    Pack=name of your custom pack
    Base by=name of pack creator
    Version=version number of your custom pack
    Date=date

    [7tsp]
    theme creator=name
    theme=mytheme.theme <<The name of the theme file as placed in the "Extra" folder, e.g.: mytheme.themepack or mytheme.theme (and place the folder that goes with it "mytheme" also in the "Extra" Folder).
    uxhex=yes <<<In case the theme needs uxtheme.dll to be patched, else write "no".
    mui=no

    [TaskManager] << will only be used if "taskmgr.exe.res" is in the resourcer folder... (this may also be a dummy file)
    grid=00FF00
    CPU=00FFFF
    Memory=FFFF00
    Digits=00FF00

    [CopyAnimation] << will only be used if this is in the pack.ini (and enabled by the user in the option menu)
    Color1=DCE5F4
    Color2=9BC0E3
    Color3=002B55
    FontColor=000000

    (or to use a bitmap instead of grediant colors)
    [CopyAnimation]
    Bitmap=100 << place a 'Bitmap' of 400x40px in shell32.dll.res with name: '100' and language ID: '1033'
    Fontcolor=FFFF00


    a new res file can be created by making a copy of an existing res file, rename it and add the new resources
    with the same name or number it has in the original dll/exe file using Reshacker, you can add any dll/exe/cpl/mui file in res format in the resources folder.
    7tsp will recognize them and if they exist in the system32, windir or en-EN folder they will be patched.
    other files recognized are:
    ~firefox.exe.res
    ~basebrd.dll.res
    ~shellbrd.dll.res
    ~sapi.cpl.res
    ~sapi.cpl.mui.res
    ~Windir\ files (explorer.exe.res, write.exe.res...)


    Important notes:
    ~Please compress the pack with 7zip
    ~Set all language id's in the res files to English(1033)
    ~Always ask permission when using some one else his/her art before sharing
    ~7tsp is a free community project. The Official (and user contributed) 7tsp packs may NOT be used or altered for commercial purposes!!
    (It is allowed to use it in a company or for clients as long as there is no money made upon)
