ADOBULATED by Aaron-A-Arts ADOBULATED by Aaron-A-Arts


Update Fixes:

  • control panel sidebar colors

  • various text colors for light backgrounds

  • run dialog

  • shadowless and fading frames

  • flashing tasks and other task contrasts

  • tray switches

  • various tweaks here and there

New features:

  • logon screen

  • new command bar via shell32 + additional themes to match

  • explorerframe.dll's for those who need them

the shell32 files are set up to go well with the faenza icon patcher i highly recommend using this patch with this theme. run the patch, then manually replace shell32 with the one from my download, then reboot

site includes download links for the theme and the PSD used in development. it's all open source, non-commercial.

don't worry, there is no mandatory trojan, this page is a portfolio.

i'm accepting donations for the first time in my career. look for the link if you want to buy me a drink.

Great theme, exactly what I was looking for! My only issue is with the control panel and computer properties at the moment, they still have a bright color but that's probably cause I had to download an old version from the comments cause your download link is down :(

This theme is AMAZING! I had to get the download link from the comments though, you should fix that.

Also the control panel and Windows PC properties still have some default colors which needs fixing.

Sad, the download link isn't working.
I just get a readmet.txt with an url. But the URL doesn't exist anymore.
I wanted to install this theme :(

Are other programs affected by this theme?
Like "Eclipse" for example? I try to find a "dark grey" theme which makes all other programms dark grey too.
If not I have to find a dark grey theme for eclipse (editor program for programming) too, which match this theme.
After hours of searching this theme looks best. Match what I want to have I guess. Something more dark, better for long PC sessions :-)

Is this for windows 7 or 8 ?
Right now I'm using 7, but in some month I'll switch to 8.1 so I hope this is working for both.
THX for your answers :)
