amok by schluepfer amok by schluepfer
here is my second visualstyle for you.

after "Klarheit" being quite successful for my first one, i wanted to make a theme that's more stylish, modern but still usable. there are some glowing and glossy elements combined with a simple and flat window-layout.
it took about three months from the idea to the release.

hope you like it.


*update 1.1 (2007-02-23):
  • added full startmenu
  • made min-/max-/close-buttons more visible
  • changed hovered-text-color in startmenu to white
  • added scrollbar-gripper

hoping there will be a capable release for win7 and later. It's so neat and useful(which makes me concentrate on my work) when using my computer for work with this VS.

The toolbar buttons need more visibility. This theme is pretty much perfect, it only needs a few refinements.

First of all, I'd like to appologise. Secondly, BOOO! As far as functionality goes, this is one of the worst visual styles I've ever seen, sure it's compact, but compared to Klarheit, the elements are more difficult to make out, and less highlighted when hovering. Klarheit is one of the visual styles I've used the most, but there's only one positive thing I can say about this visual style, the the selected taskbar tab is well highlighted. It's cool. But that's about it. Please, find your way again.

I'm guessing that there's no way to get the current version to work for Vista?

I know requests can get annoying, but you should think about making a version for Vista. This is the most attractive and functional skin I've found, and I miss it terribly.

hmm you should just doubleclick the msstyles-file and a dialogue will pop up (if you have windows xp).

then you should probably use something like uxtheme-patcher ([link]) to be able to use "non-microsoft-themes". guess that does the trick.

its perfect.
theres just one thing that bugs me.
on the toolbar at the bottom of the screen, you have a sort of a line running along the top of it, if you took that off it would be better.
but that just me.
great job

This is my favorite visual style on deviant art. It's the one I use for my laptop.
Really great job ^.^

I have a .dll log off bitmap I made to match it.

I gave you credit, of course.

Wunderschön.

Es gibt leider in manchen (u.a. Firefox, GTK+) Anwendungen ein Problem, mit den Tabs. Die Schriftfarbe (in den dunklen Tabs) ist ebenfalls dunkel, so dass man das nur schwer lesen kann. Könntest Du eine Version mit hellen Tabs und dunkler Schrift bauen (vielleicht in Anlehnung an die Buttons), so dass auch diese Anwendungen fehlerfrei dargestellt werden? Das wäre schick.

:iconschluepfer:
schluepfer Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2007
ja ich glaube ich werde noch eine version von amok bereitstellen mit allen updates und gewünschten fixes und mich dann anderen grafischen sachen zuwenden. bei anderen themes mit dunklen tabs klappt ja glaub ich die helle schrift auf den tabs auch, also vielleicht ein gut versteckter wert im theme. mal sehen ob sich das ändern lässt.... stay tuned...

:iconkjempe:
kjempe Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2007
vielleicht liegt es ja am glow-effekt. eine version mit hellen tabs ja wäre auch sonst eine gute alternative. die schrift in den tabs ist auch in nativen windows-anwendungen oft ein bisschen off-center. hast du eine idee, woran das liegen könnte?

ich bleibe auf jeden fall am ball und sehe gespannt dem update entgegen.

This is a fantastic theme. But I agree with many other posters about some of its faults. I love the minimize buttons, but I would like them to be on all the time instead of disappearing when you switch to another window. Also, certain buttons like the scroll bar etc are way too bright and need to be made darker. It is kind of hard to look at.

Other than that its a fantastic theme, and if it were ALL black, I mean the window backgrounds et al, it would be *perfect*!
