Wonderful theme, but the link to the version without fonts is broken: can you make it available again?

OMG! :D
I have used v.1 for 2 years now, and somehow I managed to miss this awesome second version. Thank you so much for this! In this years I have tried countless themes but not one was ever close to that amazing feeling while using v1.
Now I can get even more pleasure with v.2 :D

I am currently using your version 1.1 but am having trouble with the IE9 favorites menu. The background is dark great and the font is black making it very difficult to read. Everything else was great. I just tried this one as a comparison and it doesn't run in Aero for some reason. When it loads Windows refers to "Classic" color options so there is no transparency or anything like what is shown in the photo above. Am I missing something?

Love this theme. Been using the modded version with standard fonts. When using firefox, I have noticed that the background in some of the text boxes are dark grey and the the text within the box is light gray. No issues there, but in some windows the textbox is the standard white and the text is still light gray. Is there a way to change the text color to something a little darker so I can see it on a white background. I've tried messing around in advanced appearance settings but don't know which item to change. Any help?

Wow, its great! Um... How did you apply these grey icons on taskbar? (I'm not English, but I hope I was understandable.. ^^ )

You have to download Token icons, you can find it here, on Devianart. Create a shortcut of the program you want to pin to taskbar. Right-click on the shortcut - Properties - Change icon - find the icon you want to use - Apply - OK. Right-click new icon - Pin to taskbar. :)

I don't understand it - those "rays" have just disappeared... :?

The only thing I'd like to change is that fat taskbar and those black buttons on web pages, sometimes I can't even see what are they for, the font is then invisible.

I really like it, finally a theme I was looking for - cheers, mate. :+fav:

There's just one thing - why I have such a weak taskbar and neither aero nor glass effects appear (or rather why did they disappear)?

Maybe you should try to patch your system files again. The style is set to use Aero, and it works just fine for me.

I've worked it out, everything's fine now. :)

Is it possible to make the taskbar thinner and to get rid of that in-built "rays" effect?

Awesome skin. I love it.

One improvement can be made though, the border between the taskbar any anything above it is kinda not "faded."

I like this theme -- everything except the fonts. And the over-use of bold on EVERYTHING.

In fact, the fonting is the only reason I won't use this: all my system menus now have bold fonting for the default view of menu items, but as I mouse-over them, I get my (more sane) regular weight font.

So close...

Have you patched your system files? Or something else went wrong... the theme couldn't possibly have crashed you computer...

Nice idea! But, too big fonts, too many gradients. And everything is too big i think :) Keep on working!

If u are using vista style builder, can u export the taskbar skin or maybe can u do a simple theme? I would like to have a normal aero theme but with that systray look of your theme :) I love apps's buttons without the rectangle selection around.

Do I have to use the fonts? I installed them before installing the them as instructed, but I do like like either of them, especially the Calibri Caps font. Would Windows use default fonts if I didn't install them? Otherwise, great theme!

You don't have to use fonts. You can just uninstall them, and theme will use the default Tahoma. :)
