VOID THEME + ICONS by juyle VOID THEME + ICONS by juyle
This is a theme I have been working on for a few months now. I started working on it because of my distaste for the original Windows theme and the hopelessness in finding a theme I really could adopt.

It is not perfect but I am not sure if I want to spend too much time on it any more, and I think I have done an OK job so far.

Instructions:
-First of all you need a patched system to use this theme but I guess you knew that already, it's easy to do, but I included the Universal Theme Patcher.
-Then if you haven't already, install the, also included, Theme Resource Changer
-Copy content of the "Theme" folder from the archive in C:\Windows\Resources\Theme
-If you don't have it, install the Droid Sans font that you can find in the "Font" folder
-Double-click on the VOID.theme file. It will apply the theme.

Program Icons: I mostly made the ones that I use, but feel free to make your own using the included PSD and 7Conifier. The font I used is a Monospaced called Targa MS: [link]

System icons: So far I can only provide the .ico files that you can replace yourself in imageres.dll or use IconPackager (this software is a pile of crap though). If I have time I will make a custom imageres.dll to come with the package.

Everything looks better if you remove shadow and animations. Go to Start menu -> right click on computer -> proprieties -> advanced settings -> performance and untick shadows and animations.

I suggest you also use the Windows standard cursors. Go to Personnalize -> Change your mouse pointers, then choose "Windows Standard". If you don't have it click on "Windows Standard Large", then "None". They'll go back to Normal size.

I might create a logon screen for it as well...

Thanks to gsw953 for his help, TheBull for his WSB tutorial and creativX forum.

Are you going to make this compatible for windows 8 anytime? I used this one my last laptop and loved it.

Thanks for the nice comment. I have had Windows 8 on my PC for a couple of months now and quite like it as is, although it could for sure be improved. If I ever apply the same principle to Windows 8 theming I'll let you know :)

Does this require Aero to be enabled?

Okay immediately posting that it's nice and different from others I've seen. the complete lack of a border is different and threw me off at first bit I can deal with it. A single pixel black border wouldn't hurt me in the slightest... but it's your theme you can do what you want with it. :D

It used to have borders but I thought it looked off and wasn't minimalistic enough. Here it is still usable and more to my liking :D .

But it is indeed not for everyone.

I do find a few issues with menus. For firefox, the text is dark on dark unless you mouse over....

I still think a very thin border would be good, though. there was also some odd white lines on my taskbar.. I think it's when I had more than one window of the same type open though.

Otherwise it's neat.

I'm using Chrome and ... sort of assume everyone did :/ . I will install Firefox and see if it's too bad I might make a new version.

The "odd white lines" are my way of saying there's more than one window opened. Slightly clumsy I know.

well I'll correct myself. I'm using Waterfox, which is a 64 bit compiled version of Firefox... ton of performance improvements. eheh.. but the menu display is the same as what firefox does.
