[VS] Luna Element 2

Recommended Posts

Chlorpromazine    0
Here's a simple shellstyle I knocked up, 'twas a quicky, but I just wanted something that'll match it better than the Luna one:

Great work, Dazz! Maybe I'd like to have a little brighter brown... I can't figure out how to modify by myself. If you do not have time to do it, explain me how to do it :)

Thanks Dazzla! quick question though; why is there such a large gap between Control Panel and See Also? It happens with other boxes too, but it is kind of annoying at times.

When I read new color on the changes log I thought a new color variation was added instead of just a recolor... :-(

The buttons are great, specially the caption buttons. And the new menu highlights alone make me want to switch to this style :-)

The tabs and the scrollbars could benefit from some work to make them away from the original Luna/Royale look.

Frankly I liked Element 1's shade of blue more than this one, this one is not bright nor ergonomic, falls somewhere in the middle but not sure where exactly...

This could have been integrated into Element 1 as a color scheme instead of calling Element 2, it would be nice if all the small hard to see improvements were incorporated into Element 1's color too...

Theme Updated

Changelog:

* Updated shellstyle

* Made theme installer, 7-zip sfx, filesize now ~600kb smaller :)

Couldn't set default output though, but this is the path you should extract to:

c:\windows\resources\themes

Make sure you change to another theme before installing or else shellstyle won't overwrite.

is there a before and after pic for that shellstyle?

585851369[/snapback]

Its with or without the shellstyle and also present in 2.1.

BTW, How do you get the shellstyles to take hold? All I see is the crappy XP shellstyle color.

Read post #133. Don't people learn to read in school anymore. Or maybe some skip class to often.

If you want to remove shellstyle it is possible in Folder Options.

You're right, here's one with a lighter brown. It's easy to modify, just open the dll in reshacker and search for the RGB number of what you want to change.

I also modded the Luna Logon, again it's another quicky just so the colours are more in line with Element.

Unfortunately, being human prevents me from perfection :rolleyes:

Thanks for the nice VS :)

...And I did change to another theme before installing.
