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! See FAQs if you're updating this theme from an older version.

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 original 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.

  • 6/18/2014: Initial Release
  • 6/19/2014: Vertical taskbar fixed, uncombined taskbar text fixed, minor changes.

I don't plan on making a windows 8 version since windows 8.1 is a free (and essentially mandatory) update.

There should be a theme file inside the download. Please provide a screenshot of what you see inside the folder if you cant find the theme file.

Are you sure? I just downloaded the zip and inside it is a folder which contains the .theme file and theme folder.

If I remember correctly, the latest version doesn't require the blank caption font. And, I think that bug is related to the font and not this theme directly.

I'll consider adding a lite option (no shadow with squared edge), but making another variant would require too much time to maintain.

I would suggest using UltraUXthemePatcher instead of UXStyle, but I don't think that is what is causing this. I think there might be some kind of program on your computer that might be turning off the shadow. Are you running any kind of optimization/tuneup program? If so, that may be causing the issue.

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

Oh, no thank you, I found the solution. It seems I needed to install another program called AeroGlass because Win8.1 had an overlay on its window title. :D Thanks for being willing to help, and sorry for the bother.

link6155 Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2014  Hobbyist Interface Designer
AeroGlass does solve the problem, but it's unnecessary. You most likely tweaked with the windows color settings, which this theme doesn't support. Reapplying the theme would probably solve your issue.

I figured it out: the 'Color intensity' slider in the Color and Appearance window affects the background of the text.

Mine was set to somewhere in the middle, but moving the slider to the far left brings it back to the theme's intended color.

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.

To anyone still having this issue, go to Personalization -> Colors and set the color intensity to 0

It should be themed if you applied it currently.
