Valley by link6155 Valley by link6155

This is Valley, the dark variation of my theme, Summit.

Always create a system restore before attempting to modify your system with any themes or tool! I am not responsible for anything that happens to your computer!

Please read the FAQs before commenting!

Do not mirror, modify, or redistribute without my consent. Sharing is OK, but you must link directly back to this page.


FAQs:

Q: What is Valley? 
A: Summit is an OS X Yosemite Dark mode inspired theme for Windows 8.1+.

Q: Theme doesn't look like the screenshot!
A: Make sure you patched your system and you have shadows enable (this is required).

Q: There's a white bar in explorer, how do you get rid of it?
A: You need to use ONE or Ribbon Disabler to get rid of the whitebar.

Q: How can I download this?
A: Press the download button on the right side of the page.

Q: How can I install this theme?
A: Take the content of the zip folder you downloaded and place it in C:\Windows\Resources\Themes. Make sure you patch your computer using UXThemePatcher or UXStyle.

Q: How do I update the theme?
A: First, make a restore point to make sure you can always go back if anything goes wrong. Afterwards, change your theme to another theme such as the default aero theme. Log off and on, then insert the new theme files in the appropriate location (see above). Apply the theme and you're good to go!

Q: This doesn't look exactly like OS X Yosemite!
A: This is my take on Apple's flat style, so does not necessarily match OS X Yosemite 100%

Q: Help! The theme isn't applying and I am getting a grey basic theme!
A: Make sure to patch/override your uxtheme.dll file using UXStyle or UXtheme Ultra patcher.

Q: Will there be a windows 7 version?
A: Possibly, but I currently don't have Windows 7. Please do not ask as I already addressed this.

Q: Will there be an Aero version?
A: I'm not sure as the creator of Aero8 is not the nicest guy in the world.

Q: May I use this theme in my transformation/customization pack? May I make a mirror/redistribute it? Could I modify it for public use?
A: Absolutely no, unless you have permission from me.


Changelog:

  • 6/18/2014: Initial Release
  • 6/19/2014: Vertical taskbar fixed, uncombined taskbar text fixed, minor changes.
  • 7/27/2014: Removed grey inactive windows.

well they are basically just two sides of a coin, so i figured what applies to summit applies to valley, a minor typo.

Also, could you please tell me what I'm doing wrong? I have a back highlight-kind of thing around the titles of the windows. :(

Hello, does this need a Ribbon Disabler or will it be fine with the ribbon?

Absolutely amazing theme, so is Summit. They are well done, simple, clean and concise. However I've encountered this issue where there is a black box behind the titles of Explorer windows. It's pure black on active windows and greyed out a little but still visible in inactive windows. Any idea why is this? s17.postimg.org/5tvw91vj3/boxe…

It looks like you changed the color of Windows. Try applying the default theme and then this theme.
