:: Alduin 2 Vista Port :: by sweatyfish :: Alduin 2 Vista Port :: by sweatyfish
Yet. Another. Vista. Basic. Port

Updated June 3, '09:
-Thinner window borders
-New start menu shutdown (thanks to =jg-visuals for the find)
-Went back to the more XP style
-Changed fonts to Avant Garde
-And more (honestly, I can't remember)

Not designed for use with details pane (bottom shell). Turn off by opening an explorer window, select Organize in the upper left, from the drop down list select Layout, then click on Details Pane.

For drop shadows, use Y'z Shadow (latest version).

Special thanks to Lassekongo83 for his generosity.
If you like, also give a fave to the original.


Wallpaper

HELP: If the Start Button does not display correctly when you first apply the style, log off, then log back on. Also, make sure you use 96dpi. Basic mode only.

This is Awesome im going to use it :)
i just want to share my idea, if you add toolbar/panel like ubuntu has on the top you know you put stuffs you want up there and you can group them put as much distance as you want between icons and stuff.

So I installed this and everything, but the back and forward buttons do not show properly. They show as they would on a regular vista theme but with black backgrounds. They don't show the green ones you have there.

It's a great theme and I'll use it, but is there any fix to that issue?

I've never used a theme that is this good. This has been for a while now, and will forever be the only theme that I use on my Vista laptop, however, after buying a new computer with Windows 7, I was crushed when I found it hadn't been ported yet. Any chance of a Windows 7 port?

BEST. WORK. EVER. You are the man Sweatyfish.

Very nice ports. One thing keeps me from using many: the title bar text is centered. I like a version which has tit titles at the default left - so I can put Winamp in windowshade mode on top of my screen :P

I also really wish, you had an aero version! I use a program called switcher, which is pretty much a expose for windows and It requires aero. Also, I would love to see this theme have the ability to be taller. As in, when you unlock the taskbar and drag it up a little. My resolution has a width of 900px but my open programs fill up the space on the taskbar pretty quickly so I need two rows!

very nice, i really like the start menu and taskbar

but it tends to get a bit foo-barred with google chrome

which is a shame because its the browser i tend to use =[

maybe something someone could have a look at?

i have no idea how....

Beautiful port, as usual, sweatyfish ;)

I really would love to these ports made for Aero style as well, kinda like Eoin did with Auriel 2: [link]

With Eoin's port we have the choice to use Aero or Basic.

Eitehr way keep up the great work ;)
