START MENU SEARCH BUG FIXED ON BOTH STYLES
PSEUDOGLOW CLEANUP ON ALTERNATIVE STYLE
I thought of modifying the theme to make it more "Diamondish", and taking as base this [link]
You can consider this a new release. I have changed several things on this one, so you can choose between the first one and now this one. Please READ the following notes before asking anything, as I HAVEN'T INCLUDED READMES on this release.
-You don't need to erase the old theme. It has a new name now, Diamond PH. PH because of Phodeo.
Just extract it to your resources folder.
-You have AN OPTIONAL SKIN
coming along. While the 'normal' one has the original caption buttons from Lucifiar's Diamond as Basic theme, the Aero theme is more Vista-ish now, hence the caption buttons. This one has Pseudo-Glow for the address bar and search bar, to make Aero usable (the basic theme looks crap with it IMO).
On the preview, it's the two upper and the Flip3D one.
The OPTIONAL SKIN
was intended for BASIC THEMEing. The address bar's text is white, so you won't have good results if you use it's Aero theme with transparency turned on
. In Basic, it's working fucking great, 'cause I didn't use Pseudo-Glow on it (check the fourth screen/ Media Center one on the preview). It's Aero does not have the caption buttons, only the glyphs (like a lot of skins around). I thought of making one Aero with glyphs only to match with the Basic theme. Remember that Aero will look shitty because the address text is WHITE and has no Pseudo-Glow (You can, of course, disable the Transparency on DWM and coloring the Window to black).
Now that you know the differences, I'll tell you a tweak.FOR BASIC THEME ONLY!
In the Windows' theme selection window, choose Diamond PH and before applying it, click on advanced > Item: Active Title Bar. Change the font's color to white and hit ok. Now apply the theme.
It will make the title bar texts more visible (it's THE TITLE BAR, not the ADDRESS BAR), since the default is black and Diamond PH has a black top frame.
Why applying that on Basic only? Because if you apply that on Aero, the title bar text will get unreadable (white text + glow).Additional info!
