mini'em all // Update by snipes2 mini'em all // Update by snipes2
//UPDATE 27.02.2012: Added two new Substyles!
note that the new Visual Styles are only compatible with
> large taskbar icons
> allways group
> bottom taskbar

//UPDATE 25.01.2012:
Fixed the bug responsible for the disappearing of some controls.


The file includes six Visual Styles for Windows 7
and custom images to change the explorerframe.dll

____________________________________________________________

For installation instructions read this: [link]

To change the explorerframe I suggest you to use this wonderful tool: [link]

The start button is made by ~MustBeResult and you can find it here: [link]
To change the start button please use this tool: [link]
The start button is not included

In the preview i also used a custom shell32.dll. You can find it here: [link]


To get firefox working without the common visual bug where the frames of the sidebar are messed up use tis useful addon: [link]
Setings>undock sidebar

so beautiful. congratulations on being a wonderful designer. i just have one request.
for the alien theme 1, it's perfect in every way except i just really wish the taskbar was transparent like the window stuff. it matches every other criterium and if the taskbar was the same as the window bar then that would be everything i could ever want in a theme. can you maybe make that happen please? you're great

I have a problem with this theme where there is a white border on the left and right side of every window, and it looks very weird. It looks like it's a side effect of the rounded edges mod to the explorer, but I'd like to disable that. It's the only problem I have with this theme.

I've noticed that the Alien 1 style doesn't do this, most of the others do though. I'm trying to find a way to edit that portion myself.

A nice set of styles here. I notice with special edition 1 however that if the taskbar is not combine and hide labels, the background of it vanishes. Only the item frames, and 'tabs' to the left and right of the taskbar remain.

I just came upon this theme and it is fantastic. I especially love the curves in the Alien 1 and Special Edition 2 variants. They really give a unique appearance while not looking over the top or tacky. It's such a fantastic blend of minimalism and modern design. Well done!

I've come across a bug in Special Edition 2, however, that is not present in Alien 1.

When you access an extended menu from Start (Internet Explorer, Steam, etc..) there appear to be missing resources.

I took a screenshot: [link]

I added the blur so ignore that.

Windows 7 64 bit with SP1.

I have it set as described; Always grouped, large icons and bottom taskbar.

Hallo snipes2,
macht es Sinn dir 2 bugs zu beschreiben oder arbeitest du nicht mehr an dem Theme? Geht um Firefox und Thunderbird.

Ansonsten wollte ich dir anbieten 7tsp Installer für deine Themes zu erstellen die du in den Download aufnehmen (insgesammt ca 15mb) oder getrennt verlinken könntest.
Kann 7tsp bedingungslos empfehlen, installiert jedes Theme + alle Resourcen auf jedem System völlig sicher mit nur einem Klick.

So genug Werbung ;) hier ist der Installer für Alien 2 : [link]
Hier gibts 7tsp: [link]

Die Bedienung ist selbsterklärend, wenn du aber näheres dazu wissen willst schreib mir am besten eine PN sonst texte ich deine Comments zu.

Gruß

hi snipes, i like these themes of yours

can i make a request and i think other might like this also
(1) for the clear 1 and clear 2 style, can u make a theme with transparent taskbar and start menu for those themes?

(2) for the bonus style (upper most screenshot u provided) can u make a transparent start menu to it and remove taskbar border??

IMHO this will be an awesome theme
more powers to you keep up the good work :D
