NSFR is the no system files replacement version, meaning it's just the msstyles and is made to work with the default shell32 and explorerframes in 7. Later I'll make the changes to support the full version, I'm just using NSFR at the moment to test everything without having to constantly upload the dll files (takes about 30 minutes on my connection).

I want to make a bug report, I don't know if it has already been posted.

The Taskbar with small icons has inconstistent look, the image behind the Start-Button and the System-Tray looks different than the one behind the task-switcher. I want to mention it, as it looks ugly.

Yeah I'll make one in the future. Since I'm back in 7 I've been thinking of bringing back the R2 Addons Pack.

I really like it! I like the buttons.... panel... almost all, except the buttons of window ("close, "hide", "minimize"). They are a little bit rough. Maybe you would remake them in future?

:iconlonghornfusion:
longhornfusion Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2012
Thanks. :)

How do you mean rough, when they're hovered or pressed or all the time? Borders aren't right?

No, borders are typical and there is no problem with that. I think that the icons inside of buttons are too big... or maybe something else, but the problem is in that icons for sure.

It's size and borders are there simply because they were in Longhorn and the point of this theme is to get it as close as possible to the actual Aero theme from back in 2004 (while also making it look more modern and clean). But I understand what you're saying, if this wasn't a recreation the buttons would be larger and it wouldn't have had a double border.

It's a very interesting visual style. You've obviously put a lot of thought and work into this design. Thank you for sharing it.

Nice theme!

I'm just curious why only half the window gets a blue border; was that part of the original MS design?

longhornfusion Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2012
Thanks :)

Yes, it was like that throughout all of Longhorn including Vista when it released. It was made because if you look at a real pane of glass the edges will be teal due to the way the light goes through it.

Will you be updating your other version with the system file changes too?
Reply
:iconlonghornfusion:
longhornfusion Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2012
Yes. I'm using NSFR as a beta because it's easier to test and I don't have to upload all the system files along with each update.

YAY. I also got fed up with Windows 8 and decided to switch back to windows 7. But I needed the good theme I used before
I upgrade to Windows 8. I'm counting on you now to see when I should return back to Windows 7 :D
