You can find a link to Downloads in the dropdown arrow's menu in the search bar. I decided to adopt this style from the default theme.


I've been using your skin for too long, I had completely forgotten it was there in the default steam skin :D

Previously friend list used to cause cpu spike. Right now only the library tab causes spike. Not store, not news/community, not server browser/friendliest etc.

Now it does not always spike in library. Only when you select certain games.
I have quite a few number of games. Let's categorize them in two: Installed (#1), Not-installed (#2).

Selecting #1 category games do not cause spike except Universe Sandbox.
Selecting #2 category games causes huge spike except a few games like AaAaAA!!! - A Reckless Disregard for Gravity where the spike is low but still not normal.

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.


It was in the right place, don't know what the issue was, but I tried it just now, and steam (beta) updated, then I could use the skin. /shrug. Thanks, looks very slick.

That's an odd situation. I don't own either of those games but I'd imagine if it only happens with a couple it's something out of my control. Outside of changing the text size and the selected background color the list is mostly hard-coded.

Oh, well I'm glad it's working now. Enjoy it.

I have ~113 games. Only 26 installed. Almost all non-installed ones cause this issue if anyone of them are selected in library.
I have non-steam shortcuts added. All of them causes this issue.

After a bit of troubleshooting I'm beginning to notice a trend: Uninstalled games with no time stats are causing high CPU usage, while those that were previously played and have stats aren't.

I'm going to look into this. Thanks for the help, we're getting somewhere now!

Edit:
Fixed it!

Cool. Yes, I can confirm only items without timestat causes the issue. Let me redownload the skin (assuming the fixed version is up!).

:( where is the fixed version?!

Also, am I blind of the clickable button (link) to close steam overlay is missing?

Can you add a little indent in friends tab -> groups -> friend names?

I haven't uploaded it yet.

I removed the link.

That indent took up a lot of space space and just left less room for names, so I removed it.

Can you add that link somewhere else if that position looks bad? For example, a back button on top left. Would look cool!

Then make the offline text font/color much different from group name font/color please :)
I'd prefer the gray of "1 IN GAME, 4 ONLINE" for offline friends.

That's actually a really good idea! I'll see if it's possible.

Now that I can do. I usually have my list set to only show online friends so I hadn't realized how light that text was. Thanks for bringing it up.

Great job keeping this up even after Valve breaks the skin almost every update!

One day it would be great to see a tenfoot skin, that is of course if Valve supports skinning it.

Awesome update :)

Thanks for your time.

Jumping from 2.5.5 -> 2.7.1. I wish I still had time to play games >.<
