Ice VS Beta by oliver182 Ice VS Beta by oliver182
Theme for windows 7

Original concept by *danillooc [link]
Wall by -seahorsepip [link]

Note: The original concept was thought as windowsblinds theme, so some parts of it are not possible to make on a regular windows 7 theme.

Instructions

VS

1. Install Universal Theme Patcher if you haven't. [link]
The Multi Patcher requires administrator rights. Right-click the exe file, select "Run as Administrator" and then restart computer before applying the visual styles.
2. Extract the content of the downloaded file.
3.Copy the content of the THEME folder to C:\Windows\Resources\Themes.

NAV BUTTONS (NOT RECOMMENDED YET , I NEED HELP WITH THESE)

1. Download this app [link]
2.Replace the bitmaps with the ones from the FILES/NAV folder

You can use this ones in the meantime [link]

START ORB

1.Download from here [link]žion=&global=1&q=metro+orb#/d3d3v27

ICONS

1.Download this pack for IconPackager [link]

Corners of windows could be a bit better (especially the top ones), but it's really nice apart from that :)

Like it a lot, but the default (unpressed) button with the blue bar that changes color really isn't working for me.

Sorry if I sounded a bit confusing: it's an expression. With "not working for me" I meant that I don't really like it and it definitely doesn't 'fit in' with the unobtrusive look of this visual style.

its just a modded default windows aero theme. nothing special in my opinion. try being a little more original next time :(

That was the original idea from the autor, a cleaner vision of Aero UI.Not a totaly different theme. An by the way the start menu has some modifications,the resources are'nt the original ones ;)

All Visual styles are built on the default aero.msstyles and that is a fact. Some just replaces mostly all the elements in the msstyles which makes it look like it haven't been aero. But, deep down, it still is a modified default aero.msstyles with new images and a new name ;)

Ah, never mind. I was thinking of modifications of other themes when i said that. Ignore me. :P

yes serg i know this :D but you guys at VC change just about every image in a theme, therefore i personally don't consider these themes just a mod of the default Aero. my point is, this theme, even though its ok, has pretty much the same start menu and taskbar that 7 comes with by default. These are two main pieces of any theme in my opinion, so to me it just a slight mod. Not a full mod like you guys do. I guess i am just spoiled with the best!! :boogie:

I understand "Seahorsepip" has been working on this theme not you, but I'm afraid to say I download it and try it and I'm disappointed, the theme has a bad quality on itself, the scrollbars had a few details, and the start button and the menu are ugly and there are some items around the theme that I found they aren't well cut and look pixelated and show white pixels of the background and I don't see how is it better to the original concept [link] , now you had make some themes for example "Alternative AE" [link] or Nightfall [link] and yes they do have a few details, but these 2 Visual Styles ( Alternative AE and Nightfall) are still fantastic, but on the Ice VS by "Seahorsepip" there some details that a theme designer shouldn't had left behind and the the consequence of this is that this VS isn't fantastic, I believe that some modifications and more quality on this VS may rise the kind of theme it is.

Alright now leaving this behind, take care and have a nice day!

Sincerely,
Deisler Smith.

Just a bug with the scrollbars. Do you need a screenshot or is it something you know and you're working on it ?

So far... I'm digging it. it just works.

You, my friend, just might have one of those themes that I recommend to everyone... as I have with Watercolor Emico: Black, by Gelosea. Everyone I know that still uses XP has at least a variant of that.

Works well with Opera 11.10 and mIRC 7.19 doesn't seem to be giving me any grief... same with FF4 and WL Mail 2011. I'd check with IE9 though, when I have it on full black, no transparency, it gets hard to read the font somewhat.

A-whoops, forgot to mention- I'm only using the theme, not the icons, orb, or nav buttons- the theme by itself works out nicely.

Just thought i'd give this much input to let you know the theme is alright stand-alone.

Keep up the great work!

Overall this is a very interesting vistual style. I'm amazed what you did with the buttons, they look animated, somehow. The only real fault is the scrollbars don't quite fit, they seem about a pixel off to the left. And the scroll buttons have a pixel of white space on the left. So they appear offset to each other.

If you use the right margins and maybe re-do a few of the images, it should be ;)
