Hrrm... perhaps it is slightly different for Vista. It was designed in Win 7, though I feel it ought to work for Vista but it may require other instructions that I do not currently know.

I wish I could say yes, but working 5-6 days per week over the past 18 months has squandered my free time and creativity.

'tis a sad time. I am sorry.

I really like both of your themes, I'm currently using the VS one. You did an amazing job on both and I'd love to see more from you. (Luna or Celestia >.>)

I do have one question though, is there any way to change the background color and text color for text documents? for example the dark blue page color of note pad or open office with the grey text is hard on the eyes.
And if I did would it affect anything else in the theme?

Anyways thank you for awesome theme/s!

With notepad, no. It depends on the program if it will use its own visual formatting or if it will 'borrow' the Windows theme's visual formatting. 

I'm sorry that it is displeasing to you, but it may just take getting used to. 

The only way to change *that* in particular would be to make adjustments to the visual style file. But a change to one thing will cause it to change in other places as well.

Sometimes I change back to the default Windows 7 theme if I'm having too much trouble reading text on programs that borrow the colors from the Vinyl theme. *shrug* there's always a tradeoff.

About what I thought, not really a big deal being that I don't use text based programs to often. If I need to use it at length I'll just swap out themes, not like it takes any real time anyways.
Thank you for the quick reply.

For some reason the theme isn't working for me.  Like the taskbar for example is the same as before, everything is the same as before, no theme applied it seems like.

I installed before things as well.

And I'm running 7.

Did you run both the 64-bit *and* 32-bit version of Universal Theme Patcher? (then restarting after)

Oh, heavens. I didn't even think to include a download for that... I believe it's called "Blue Aero Seven"

Just deleted a bunch of files from my computer. When I clicked "Empty Recycle Bin," I heard Vinyl say "Why do I even have this?" and a sound played suggesting she threw all the files into a fire.

10/10, made my fucking day.

This is a pretty cool theme. I'm not usually that into ponies but this just looks so damn good I couldn't help myself. Sweet colour choices and the fonts are tastefully integrated and never get overwhelming.
If anyone is having problems with getting the theme to work, did you make ABSOLUTELY sure to install Theme Resource Changer in the C: drive? I'm probably the only person who would have this problem, but, eh, just in case.

The toolbar, fonts, and  font color aren't showing up properly. Am I supposed to take an extra step not shown in the instructions? (Windows 7 x86)
Reply
:iconthebronified:
TheBronified Featured By Owner May 4, 2014
For the fonts to work, your machine will have to have them installed before the theme is loaded.

Included in the download is a folder of three fonts. You can right click all three at one time and press 'install' to make the fonts install to your machine. 

After that, reloading the theme should cause the proper fonts to load as well.

The taskbar should fix itself to the correct font, but could you provide a screenshot to show me what you mean?

Here's what it looks like now. postimg.org/image/3mmcwiyk3/fu…

So, the font isn't changing color nor is the toolbar being replaced with the icons/images included with the theme.

Innnteresting. To me, that appears as though your Windows is applying only the basic version of the theme (and not the aero-enabled features).

Something that I did for my machines is I used the Universal Theme Patcher to patch both the 64-bit and the 32-bit patches, to cover all bases basically.
There is also a small chance that your Norton protection is blocking some of the Theme Patcher's intentions, as Norton can sometimes be overly strict. (just a chance)

Have you been able to successfully install any other custom themes before?

I put Norton in silent mode, ran the 32-bit version of Universal Theme Patcher, and it works! Many thanks! This theme is truly amazing because of my love for Vinyl! d^-^b

Would this be able to work on a netbook only if I download those 2 things, or since we can't really personalize a netbook anyway, it won't work?

if the netbook is running on Windows 7 it should work just dandy

My netbook runs on Win7 Starter so I had the curious question because it doesn't have the ability to personalize like the other Win7 types out. But it is nice to know that it will work fine.

Is there a way to uninstall this?
Reply

TheBronified Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2014
If you mean just the theme, then you can simply delete the folder from within your themes folder.

If you mean the Theme Patcher and Resource Changer, there's no need to delete the Patcher, but you can uninstall Resource Changer like any other program.

Thanks for sharing your amazing work dude, I love it ^^.
Anyhow I was wondering if you had any Chrome theme fitting this theme?

Anyway, thanks dude ^^.

I have not personally created any fitting chrome themes, but I do use the work of others to complement my own.
