Luna Element 5

Recommended Posts

em3    0

PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU POST!

Luna Element v5.1 Blue, is a Windows XP visual style and is inspired by the WinXP default theme Luna. A few parts are still in original design so I can't take credit for everything. This theme is also inspired a little by the Windows Vista GUI. It's a nice combination of old and new in my opinion.

To use this theme you need to patch the Windows system file uxtheme.dll. You can read about how to do that here: http://www.neowin.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=140707

When you have patched uxtheme.dll you place the .msstyle in desired folder and run it.

If you want to use the included Logon place 'logonui_blue.exe' in C:\ and run the included logonui_install.reg.

This VS includes 2 styles:

* Blue

* Blue Compact

Last Updated: 2007-01-28

Latest Version: 5.1

Updates

1 update is in development. LE v5.1 SE. Changing the shade of blue.

Bugs

Before reporting any bugs try and think of and explaination why the bug occurs and don't assume immediately it's a VS problem. Here are 2 "bugs" I know of:

* Black text background for checkboxes in some applications. (Application bug)

* In Firefox the scrollbar glyph doesn't change color on hover. (Firefox bug)

* Multi row taskbar does not look good. (Theme)

Mods and application skins...

Sure, no need to contact me about it. A link to my DeviantArt page is appreciated.

Don't forget to let me know what you think :)
