Metro for Steam - 3.6.8

2.3 - Download

Description:

There are a ton of changes in this release so I encourage you to go out and find them all. This release is not complete in my eyes but I don't want to hold on to it any longer now that another Steam update has broken the skin.

You're an absolute champion.

I'm looking forward to 2.4 when you get time >.< As others have observed, you have just made this better with each release (a noteworthy achievement indeed).

EDIT::

Was looking through some of your other deviations. I particularly love the Aero+ theme. If ever you choose to take a swipe at W8 in the same fashion, make sure you tell me so I can install it :o

EDIT2::

Did you make the banner for the steam group or is it auto generated?

The Aero+ theme isn't his, that's one of his favorites. I do agree it's a pretty good theme though.

As for 2.3, I've already commented on it before it was released. YES!

While I'm not a big fan of Windows 8 / Metro I really think that this is the best steam skin out there, you really created a pleasant to look at client and everything just fits perfectly. It's amazing!

Great work on the skin BoneyardBrew and keep it up! :D

Well that's good at least.

Now I can stop hating him for being so damn talented :p

Thanks a lot! As Excelsis mentioned, Aero+ isn't mine. I've never released a Windows theme but I have done some concepts.

I put the group avatar together with the Steam icon Auroka shared with me. The wall of avatars is a standard group feature with the new community.

Finally installed this skin on Windows 8. Loving it so much. :)

I'm happy to hear that! :) It feels nice with Windows 8.

2.4 looks great.

If I might just ask, what's the difference between the "Stable" and "Beta" files?

Beta is if you're in the Steam beta for big picture mode.

In celebration of this release I made a landing page for the skin. It was done weeks ago but losing power set back my schedule. Check it out here!

Also, if you really enjoy using the skin I would appreciate it immensely if you were to donate. Any amount will do, and I could put it towards my next iced coffee! :)

How do I apply this theme? just copy & replace everything into the Steam Directory?

Be sure that it extracts to its own directory (Windows 8 - 2.5) and then put it in the skins folder located in Steam's root directory. Once that's done go to Settings - Interface from Steam and select the skin from the drop-down menu.

I wonder what I'm doing wrong. I unzipped it to \steam\skins\metro, so there is a steam\skins\metro\resource\styles\steam.styles file, but it doesn't give me the option to use the skin in the settings of steam, just list 1 option, 'default' for skins. I tried upgrading to the steam beta, still no go. advice please?

Looks great, but what about the background images in the default library view, any plans to add those?

with the latest release i have noticed some issues with the friends list (this is the only release other than the very first one released on neowin that i have used.

There is a down arrow AND a gear on the top left for settings. also it just looks strange, not sure if it is intended.

2.5.5 - Download - Steam Group Post

I was going to release these changes as a part of 2.6 but there have been complaints of the details view sidebar being far too small so I decided not to wait. The changelog is below. :)

Also, a sincere thanks to anyone who has donated so far. It means a lot.

Changelog:

General:

Redesigned Filter Buttons to have hit regions as large as their hover and pressed states, changed spacing 1px

Aligned CheckBox Image with Text


Details View:

Re-added Screenshot Backgrounds

Fixed Install Button Hitbox

Larger SideBar

Moved Game Hub Contribution Count to Right-Hand SideBar


Downloads:

Fixed Search Filter Style and Positioning


Screenshot Manager:

Fixed Spoiler Tag Positioning

Make sure you've put the skin in "Steam/Skins/*Skin Name*", and not "Steam/Steam/Skins/*Skin Name*". I know this is rather basic but it's an easy mistake to me.

Looks great, but what about the background images in the default library view, any plans to add those?

I've re-added them in 2.5.5.

It looks like you may have overwritten the files in Steam's root directory, as that appears to be a combination of the default and my skin. If it turns out this isn't the case I would delete the skin entirely from the skins folder and put a freshly downloaded copy in.

Thanks for the great update! :D

I'm probably blind, but I can't find anywhere to go to the downloads page? :p
