Some themes provided in this VS is intended to be used with Black Glass Enhanced v0.5 by ~curiouso9
Includes explorerframe.dll, which is needed to enable the drop shadow and images inside the explorer window, shell32.dll and explorer.exe for both x86 and x64 systems, as well as the source images to be applied manually.
I always prefer to manually install the files and image. But if you cant, you can use Windows Themes Installer v1.1 by =Kishan-Bagaria [link]
Six themes, including three "glass" (to be used with Black Glass Enhanced v0.5 by ~curiouso9 [link]), and three "light" themes. All six have matching images for the basic non-Aero base theme. Each theme has its own characteristics and style (please download and use, or at least look hard at the screenshot before replying "that they all look the same"). Lots of custom wallpapers I enhanced and edited from screenshots from the game and some found on the web. Custom Startorb I made for the theme as well as shell32.dll images. Explorerframe.dll images I do not know where they originated from. Gears of War sound scheme implemented for all six themes. To aply the Gears of War font for the theme, please see [link]
Four custom skins for RocketDock. Four custom themes for Lupo Pensuite. Three for Portable Apps Suite. All compiled and made by me.
To install portable Apps themes;
Exit the PortableApps menu, but do not eject your drive.
Go to the drive you have it installed on, and navigate to;
Rename the folder labeled "Default" to "DefaultOld"
Rename the corresponding custom theme folder provided to "default".
Then move it to the directory where you renamed the original Default folder.
Some Beta versions are supposed to have theme switching implemented into the menu's context menu. But I have downloaded many, and never found one that did.
For the Lupo themes;
Move the custom theme folders to
Change the theme through the options menu.
This project was a major undertaking the past week. So if there is anything I forgot, or anything I missed or neglected, please be sure to let me know.
