Princess Luna Windows XP Theme v 1.2 by jeurobrony Princess Luna Windows XP Theme v 1.2 by jeurobrony

READ EVERYTHING BEFORE DOWNLOADING, USING, COMMENTING!!!


:icondesignedforxpplz:
THEME ONLY FOR WINDOWS XP (as far as I know, but feel free to experiment, I'm not responsible for any problems with your system)
Download the .zip from deviantArt

Installation:
1. Patch your system with "uxtheme patch" (google for it e.g. "Uxtheme Multi-patcher 8.0") with administrator rights.
2. Get and install "A Yummy Apology" font (google or here: www.dafont.com/a-yummy-apology… )
3. Go to "My Computer\Drive C:\Windows\Resources\Themes"
4. Create new folder called "Princess Luna" or anything you want*.
5. Extract all files from archive to the new created folder.
6. Double click Royale.msstyles
7. A window with theme changing will pop up.
8. Click "Apply" and "OK".

*(This may seem funny because WinXP default theme is codenamed "Luna", so don't overwrite files in that folder)

Please if you want to create your own theme based on this, give the link in the description to my work ;) Thanks in advance!

Things changed:
* Start Button
* Start Menu
* Taskbar with tray and buttons

UPDATE v 1.1
* Progress Bar
* Buttons

UPDATE v 1.2
* Fixed buttons transparency
* Radio buttons and check boxes
* Folder backgrounds (ShellStyle.dll)

Taskbar is themed only in horizontal position.
Controls work only in "Normal" size. If you select "Large" or "Extra Large" it may be incomplete.
The wallpaper is not included. Find it here: fav.me/d4x1k30

This theme is based on Windows XP Media Center Edition Royale.
Created using:
* Resource Hacker www.angusj.com/resourcehacker/
* Notepad
* GIMP

There has been an issue using this:

• I was originally using this theme, when suddenly, Windows XP is no longer the classic blue! (When I try to load from Personalize.)
• The Start Orb doesn't also appear to load up properly as well.
• Nothing else about the PC has changed.

I deleted the files in the themes folder to retry from scratch, I'm using both.
I was also using a customization theme similar to this. www.youtube.com/watch?v=OJIbol…


My fault, I was using a Windows 7 PC, not XP. My bad.

Anyways, ever thought of using Classic Shell to upload that Princess Luna XP start button?
I'm sure a lot of fellow Windows 7 users would like it a lot! :D *was just making a suggestion*

I'm not using windows since a looooong time. But it's easy to extract the button if you want, using resource editor. That way you can use it in probably every alternative theming engine.

Too much work, I think I'm fine using a regular 7 to XP themepack using
things like UXThemePatcher, things like those.

Windows XP always brings me back.

Speaking of tutorials, got anything on a resource editor? Got any good
recommendations? :) *is a noob when it comes to designing Windows
themes, but has general knowledge to install themes*

Open the file with (OMG I just found out he updated it since a long long time) angusj.com/resourcehacker/ and you will see that's is as hard as using mspaint.exe

I found the start button, any software you'd recommend for conversion to
a Win7 start button? I'm trying to make it compatible with Classic Shell.

Extract proper bitmap with Resource Hacker and then GIMP, Photoshop or Paint.NET

Wooow! Really nice to see that :D. You should also change BIOS splash screen and add some stickers to make it Equestria Computer Inc. instead of Acer xD

But did you install Uxtheme with admin and did you use the file to change theme instead of Desktop>Properties?

Yes I did. The archive of the download have a folder named "Shell" with the ".dll", also have the archive "Royale.msstyles" but I think is lacking the archive "Royale.theme".
I have others themes in my computer and these have an archive ".theme".

It's pretty easy. Just open up the file with Resource Hacker, save bitmaps you want, edit them and replace.
