Mac 7 by erelchris Mac 7 by erelchris
UPDATE: May 5, 2012
Mac 7 FINAL VERSION!!

file contains: a WINRAR self-extracting archive, that includes
Visual Style + Icons + Other System Files + Uninstaller

NOTE: windows frame is semitransparent glass so it would match any wallpaper of your choice.


:3 themes included(same style different caption buttons)
**go to Desktop > Right Click > Personalize > choose Mac 7 / Mac7.1 / Mac 7.2
:default taskbar is small icons (you can change it manually to large if you want to)
:with large icons, you can now see the time + date
:hard drive icons looks awesome ::credits to Jonas Rask [link]
:16px icons now looks sharper
:Library, My Computer, Network have no 16px icons so you cant see the icon on Navigation Panel
(one minor issue is that you cant also see the icons on taskbar)
:Media/Sounds = same with aero theme (ive failed on this, windows 7 has issues with it, especially with custom sounds not playing)
:had fixed the whiteline below addressbar (menubar) not seen anymore



Thank you for the suggestions and comments!
screenshots using this theme is very much appreciated, just post it here ;)

========================================

Mac 7 (beta)

This is a major update of my Windows7 VS Mac [link]

Tested only with Windows x86 and x64!
**again with x64 you cant have the icons and start orb in the future maybe..

Make sure, you had installed Universal Theme Patcher before using this..

had included my own set of icons on this pack..but is only available for Windows 7 x86

NOTE: IF ICONS DOES NOT CHANGE, RESTART COMPUTER AND INSTALL ICONS AGAIN..

Still in progress:
icons to be polished (16px and 48px)
drive icons still needs to be changed
sound scheme
compatibility with large icons ;)
(Taskbar should be in small icons)
Nevertheless, the theme is usable, had fixed some bugs and improved compatibility..

If you want the CLOSE BUTTON (X) close to the edge,
use Windows Close Button Resizer [link] and set it to a value of 1.5
this has compatibility issues so i had not included this..

Feel free to comment for any modification and bugs, as i will update theme until windows8 comes out..

Hope You Enjoy it ;)

NEXT UPDATE: perfect caption buttons and some minor mods

This is the BEST MAC theme I've ever installed. I can finally *see* selected folders and files in the explorer and in Eclipse clearly, without looking really hard!  None of the previous MAC themes I've tried would do that.  Thanks!

i don't feel like using another themes beside this for the time being because it's so comfortable on my eyes. it's simple yet carries the mac's elegance.

why dont you use Windows Close Button resizer, to make caption buttons a little to the right and also the quick launch..of course it depends upon your preference ..:)

thanks for appreciating this..

Nice, nice, nice
only a view glitches found on the first view.

- Tooltipps without border??? and with not so elegant backgroundcolor (yellow)
- The leftmost tab is not connected with the left border.
- All other tabs are one pixel to deep on their left side.

thanks for your comment, really appreciate it ;)


i thought no one can notice that, ahahaha!
you have a very keen eye!


i'll fix it if i have time, :)



::you can use Windows Close Button Resizer for a better fit of the caption buttons, just a suggestion
Reply
:iconubiuh:
uBiuH Featured By Owner May 14, 2012
Two more things ;)
- The CaptionButtons are somehow blurry on dark Backgrounds!
- Is there anything you can do to make MDI child windows more mac-ish (they are complete Windows Aero-Basic like)?

concerning CloseButtonResizer: I've tried it with no success. The CloseButtons are either too far or too close to the right.
Reply
:iconerelchris:
erelchris Featured By Owner May 14, 2012  Hobbyist Interface Designer
yeah, this theme is base on a light theme and must not be use with dark backgrounds ;) caption buttons are made like that to have a 3d effect so i cant do something about that (maybe create a separate theme for dark background)

could you provide a screenshot for MDI window..
Style Builder is so difficult to master, it doesnt even have any thorough tutorial for this..haaay :(


for Close Button resizer, ive set to 1.6 and you can achieve what's on the screenshot, NOTE: it runs on startup as wcbr.vbs (a virus? no) but does not eat any RAM at all ;)

maybe i'll include that in the future updates, if you would want to..

people have different preferences,

take a look at this, its blue blue red..try it first..;)
[link]
First revert back to Aero theme, then
replace the file C:/windows/Resources/Mac7/mac7.msstyles

..and its looks nice too, but i'd prefer it to look like that...;)
gray is universal, and can adjust to the wallpaper of any color..

This is great, i like it. :) But i think you should consider uploading a .rar file with all the theme stuff included instead of an executable file.
Reply
:iconerelchris:
erelchris Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2012  Hobbyist Interface Designer
themes.exe is actually a rar file. you could extract it to some folder..


i made it like that for people who doesnt know how to install things (some things are just complicated for them they end up not seeing the full view of a theme) and also uninstall if they dont want to..;)

Nice theme! But sometimes the Start Orb disappear. I tried to find it in your package but can't find it. Can you help me solve this problem??

:iconerelchris:
erelchris Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2012  Hobbyist Interface Designer
the orb disappears?..

nope its not included in the file..
its embedded on explorer.exe


--does the whole taskbar disappear or the startorb only?..
could you please give me a screenshot of the problem..
