There is no .exe file included in this theme. What are you talking about?

The link takes me to a reported phishing website and doesn't let me proceed. New link please?

NVM, I tried a fourth time and it gave me the file and not the phishing site.

First, does this work for Windows 7 and Windows 10?
Second, how do I actually install this?

Right.

Do startisback plugins work with Classic Shell or would you need to convert them?
Reply
:iconsimplexdesignsart:
SimplexDesignsART Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2016  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Can't convert them. Classic shell uses its own theme engine. Startisback uses Windows theme files. I suggest you get sib for full theme.

Downloaded the theme and it works properly except 2 small things:
1. The title bar in the explorer has no text (like showing This PC, the name of the drive when I acces one, folder's name etc); however it works properly in other programs (WinRAR, Picture Viewer etc) with no black background and proper outline of the window so it's not aeroglass' fault. The icon to the very left of the bar is missing as well.
2. I don't have full recycle bin icon, when i delete something and is sent to recycle bin the icon stays the same empty one. I thought maybe the theme doesn't have one but then in the picture you posted there actually is a full recycle bin icon so I assume there should be one.

And as a small suggestion I would like in the future to see the progress bar and drive's capacity with blocks like in XP instead of continous green bars.

SimplexDesignsART Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2015  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Make sure you checked the right selections in oldnewexplorer. Dont hide caption text. The recycle bin works fine for me, try manually applying the icons from personalization. (icons are inside theme folder)

As for the block style progress bars, It nearly impossible for me to get them look right. They dont line up well with the boxes they sit in which is why I cannot do that style sorry.

MrRhade Featured By Owner Edited Feb 8, 2015
Thanks, that was it with oldnewexplorer; when I click 'use the command...' it also ticks all subsequent options and I thought it *is* supposed to do that.
The icon shows properly in the personalize desktop icons, I will try to force a refresh of the icons. It's weird it didn't happen with the other non-XP themes you have.

No problem with the 'blocky' bar, I saw you used it in the last Luna preview and thought you are making progress towards it :)

You have among most comprehensive themes I found so far, couldn't find messed up icons by the theme, misaligned dialogs, broken buttons, progress bars etc which is very rare with custom themes (talking about this and Vista theme, the dark-gray in Zune doesn't play well with Windows boxes).

I actually managed to find an issue, hehe. I believe the left and right columns should be turned to blue background since the foreground text is white.

I will look into that issue. As for the different progress bar style. It can be done now since I fixed the issue, but I will only do it as a commission since I like the current style. (Commissions are setup on my DA page)

read the install instructions... You need to make sure not to check a certain option when installing glass8...

Edit: I uninstalled glass8 so I could reinstall it and fix it, and to my surprise, it fixed the minimize/resize/close buttons, they look just fine now. gyazo.com/62e2bb4268463a51f11f… Thanks bruh!

Hey xXiNightXx! I've really enjoyed all of your themes, especially the Zune one :)! But the one small detail in all your themes that would suit my preference a bit more, is if I could change the green progress bar, hard drive space bar, etc. to blue rather than green. 

Could you possible tell me how to do that? 

Thanks a lot! :)

Haha! I didn't expect you too lol. Can you just give me the image # so I can do it myself in ResHack? Or is it located in the CSS script of the .msstyle ?

i use Windows Style Builder (vistastylebuilder.com) when you purchase that software go to the forums of that website and dl the latest beta version.

I've been dying to get my hands on WSB, but I can't afford it. I've tried the pirated versions - but they just don't compare to the latest build (whatever that is. I can't find the build # anywhere). Plus the trial/pirated versions refuse to work with stylehacks, thus why I don't use the program. 

You seriously can't just tell me what the image # is?

Hey, I tried installing it like the setup explained, even installed the programs it asked for, yet it doesn't look like it installed properly.  Have a look:

Spectacular, now it works perfectly except for one thing; the start menu is exactly the same, and doesn't look like it does in your picture.

But that said, I really appreciate your help, and thanks for this wonderful motif.

Nevermind, I got it myself; open up StartIsBack Configuration and select one of the motifs; one of them is the XP one.

Also, I like to have a normal sized task bar, any chance of making a full-size start button?  If not, know where I could get one?  Thanks again!

I appreciate your work but one thing bugs me. I'm not telling you to remove your external link/adfly advert etc but you should leave a link in the description or somewhere rather than having to download an archive containing the said link. Its an unnecessary process.

:iconsimplexdesignsart:
SimplexDesignsART Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2014  Hobbyist Interface Designer
its a needed process in order for the download to count on the download meter. This allows the theme to move up on the list of how popular the theme is. It allows more people to see it. Sorry if you dont agree with me, but this is how I wish to do things.

nice theme... BUT: is it really necessary to provide the theme as an SFX EXE file??? my hairs always raising up whenever I see something like that!
why just  don't you provide the theme dir plus the associated ".theme" file (for putting both under "..\Windows\Resources\Themes") and good?
Reply
:iconsimplexdesignsart:
SimplexDesignsART Featured By Owner Edited Aug 19, 2014  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Because I get comments saying the theme does not work or how do I install it. If you dont like the exe, then dont install. Install it in a vm is you think its not safe to test it. :/  Look at all my works, does it look like I want to hurt other peoples systems? No. I just want an easier way for people to be able to install my themes without issues.

granted... but though. if you're tinkering with your system and you don't know what to do, keep your fingers away. (at least the fresh ones)
if you've to patch your system (and hence to know what to do and what tool to use) you should already beeing familiar how to apply the theme also...

well, the whole story wasn't meant in any way offending you, just my thoughts. since I'm using your themes for a long time now, I was used to download the theme directory plus theme file only... ;)
