1. There was no fonts folder, i don't even know if it makes a difference. Anyway, the main issue is some of my fonts are "fuzzy" while others are fine. For example, the details pane or context (right click on desktop) shows fuzzy fonts. I've provided a screenshot here: i.imgur.com/bAKbkbl.png
2. Chrome was skinned. I don't want it to me. I prefer to see my address bar (and the background of websites) as their default color, not skinned "dark" by this theme. Here is an example: i.imgur.com/JAZDNzU.png
3. My control panel: all the fonts are dark on dark background. I can't see them. Example: i.imgur.com/whp857W.png
4. Lastly, I have a white background over text on some background windows. i.imgur.com/HAvoYi3.png
Other than that, I love the theme. Please just help shed light on the above issues so I can fully enjoy the theme I threw my hard earned dollars at.
so, just to clarify. I fixed issues #4. It was the aero glass thing. I refuse use it because A) it forces a watermark on my desktop, and B) every 5 minutes i get a pop-up box with a code for the program asking if i want to copy to clipboard. Whatever, I can live with the white background over the text - I realize this isn't your fault, I just don't approve of what the author of the program has done. So, until that's resolved, i'll just have to live with the jacked up title text (unless you release a version that removes the text as some other themers have done.
So really, now i'm just having a problem with certain fonts being "fuzzy", chrome being "skinned dark" and dark text on dark background in control panel.
Any way to resolves those?
I've managed to fix the fonts issue. I'm not even sure what I did. I did some google searching for white titlebar text on dark theme and found some "fixes". I tried two. HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics and removing all the text there, and two metric reg files from MRGrimm and Neiio. one of the three fixed the font issue in the control panel and overall just easier to read on context menus etc.
The only issue I have which i can't see me being able to fix without help is chrome.
Chrome :- there is no separate way to skin diffrent apps. if i make dark theme than i make menus, tabs, toolbar dark which share there property with other paces like chrome, firefox etc
Fonts :-calibri fonts, & segoe semilight fonts is already installed in windows 8/8.1 os so no need to separate installation of fonts,, & the details pane fonts are not fussy they have different color ex left side font is in
white while there information in greay
It looks better and better.
I see a lot of themes below of 4$ and they are outstanding and without bugs.
If you go on Virtual Customs you will see how themes looks with prices...
2) use glass on navigatin pane
3) use details pane
4) use status bg
2nd to remove tital bar text background use aero glass for windows8.1 as per your system requirement :-glass8.berlios.de/download.htm…
before installing theme u need to install ux theme patcher from the website given in readme file,oldnewexplorer ,aero glass
