Please tell me if you were able to successfully apply this theme and what UxTheme patch you're using. Some people have been having trouble and I'm trying to figure out what cause, so tell me if it applied or not and what UxTheme patch you are using. Thanks :)

NOTE: This is the msstyles only!

This is the full theme version of the NSFR Beta 4. It includes many minor changes, mainly toolbars, start menu, and taskbar.

You'll need to download the current release of R2 for all the system files or use ResSpy if you have it.

Uuuhm.. Okay.. I'm frustrated...

I can't get the Longhorn taskbar... No matter what I do.....
I got Windows 7 64 bit.

Any help please? I've replaced everything, yes I'm sure it's in the right folders, everything works EXCEPT the darn taskbar...

What does the taskbar look like? It's similar to the 7's taskbar without the darkened bit under the start button and system tray.

It IS the Windows 7 taskbar.. I mean, I used to run this theme back when I had a 32bit PC...

The problem atm is, I'm getting no Longhorn start button.. ;w;

Well I don't know what you're doing wrong, it's working fine for me and everyone else. All that's required for the start button is to change C:\Windows\explorer.exe and restart it. [link]

Can you fix the position of "All Programs" text in startmenu for Non-English users ? thanks =)

Yeah it'll be fixed, though I have to compromise the places list in order for it to work, so it won't look as good as the original.

It's been a while since I made that modification and honestly can't remember. I'll see if I still have the files somewhere and tinker to get the command bar into style like that.

Yeah that's been a long standing bug I hope to fix when the 2012 update is final. Problem is I'll have to compromise the places list and the way it looks in order for it to work on all languages.

hi, why you dont make an 5012 , 4094 , plex 4029 , or 5218 theme ?
I really liked to see and 4029 or 4094 theme with many stuff (icons, logon,sounds,frame animations...)
^^
Reply
:iconlonghornfusion:
longhornfusion Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2012
4094 is still close to 4074 which this theme is based upon. The only other one I originally planned on doing was 4039 or anywhere in the late M6 line. Thing is it took me 15 months just to release this theme and I've been fixing things for nearly a year and a half after that release, if I do another Longhorn theme it'll be M6 and it would probably take as long.

Mate, why do you doing always the same theme, you've got a lot of talents so try maybe other, no?
Reply

The only reason that I continue this is because there are some people who wanted me to. I wouldn't even have made R2 if no one was interested, or continued afterwards :)

Although I like using the Longhorn M7 themes, I think you shouldnt continue a theme, because so many want to see updates of it. If you think it's finished you dont need to improve it in any way others think how it should.

So if you're up with new ideas i'm curious on some Mockups.
Reply
:iconlonghornfusion:
longhornfusion Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2012
Yeah, but when I see screenshots of people using it and I see something that makes me think "oh that should be different" I feel as if it needs to be fixed. This 2012 update just started from the taskbar that when small pixelated the buttons. Just continued giving it a once-over from there.

The only other theme that I currently have that has any real progress (though nowhere near complete) is Sand: [link]

:iconvoynich-manuscript:
Voynich-Manuscript Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2012
I have never met a perfectionist like you before. Or it's ways easier to improve an almost finished VS than creating something new (No complaint just a thought that came through my mind).

Your Sand Vs doesnt fit my taste at all. I am a bright theme user ;-)
Reply
:iconlonghornfusion:
longhornfusion Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2012
Creating something new is in my opinion the hardest part because the theme continuously changes in so many ways. This Longhorn theme took over 15 months before everything looked right. You can see some early shots/WIP at [link]

hey, I know it's beta, but I think I should mention a bug in the theme files you provided. Somehow Aero is cannot be enabled. neither if I select the Jade themefile nor the Longhorn M7 themefile.
