Diamond for Vista by Miretank Diamond for Vista by Miretank
I am sick of Longhorn Aero esques all around too. But I can promise you this one is a bit different. ;)

FOR TOP SHELL, GET IT FROM SAHTEL'S THEME [link] IF YOU ARE IN RTM.

IF YOU ARE RUNNING SP1, GET IT FROM YETHZART [link]


Diamond was a XP theme based in Longhorn created by Lucifiar/Windows X [link] and included in a LH Transformation Pack. I guess it was the first I have ever used, I even had troubles with uxtheme.dll back then. It was one of my favorite themes.

After I released Reanimaero, I start playing with the Basic theming and ported some parts of Diamond to Reanimaero... the thing started growing interesting, Mheltin tested and liked and I thought I could make it public. So here it is, a tribute to that awesome theme. :)

More details in the readme included.

Thanks to Lucifiar/Windows X for granting me permission of releasing this theme with Diamond parts. :)

Just resize the infobar

Vasilii2 Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2008
Doesn't help. I have tried ll three different sizes and this one actually looks best, if I use one of the other two sizes the text goes even further down from the infobar's colors.

Nah... don't resize with the right click options. Pass with the mouse over the shellstyle, close to where the details pane ("infobar") begins.

What do you mean Can't Play audio files? you mean your WMP still working, but cannot Play audio files?

cyberslice Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2008
yeah, im sure i did it right. i first did it manually then tried again with the premade shell32 file. both gave the same results. WMP will load up and the songs will show up, but when i try to play any song, it gives me an error and the song gets a red X next to it. this happens for all the songs.
