Simplex Visual Style by Nitnerolf Simplex Visual Style by Nitnerolf
Hey,
here's a new Visual Style called Simplex.
Because of its simple, flat and minimalistic design.

The only known bug is an aero blur one in the startmenu (very annoying), maybe anyone knows a solution.
Please contact me if you find another one.

-Use MacType or gdipp for a better font smoothing! (google)
-And HideBlur for correct window borders!


Hope you'll like it.

Why is the close button all squished together, but the rest are evenly sized.
I encounter this problem in multiple themes :s

dude... this is gorgeous
I wanted to cry with the shadows off because I wanted black, but I played with the settings and added shadows and INSTANTLY fell in love
you sir have made an amazingly simple but elegant theme and I thank you.

i really love how this theme looks but err i've been doing something wrong while installing it twice haha, explorer.exe and some other files wouldn't start after i tried to apply it

so err, i use windows 7 sp1 64-bit home premium and i patched my system files with vistaglazz and i use theme manager by bickelk on dA

there are only two files i should replace, right?  the shellstyle one and the theme one?  is there another i should replace for it to work properly? are there any other tools i should use? o:
thank youuuu q vq

once again, the theme is beautiful!! well done!

Heya, Hideblur isn't working for me.

I activate the 64-bit system file, then activate "disable blur", but nothing happens.

Any idea on how to fix this?

Thanks i love it, but only 1 problem. i cant seem to find the little button on the right side of the taskbar that brings up the tray thing with all the running apps?

Nitnerolf Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2012  Student Interface Designer
yeah, it's still there but I replaced the arrow with a transparent image. Just looks better like this :)
But if you really need that button, I'll make you an extra .msstyle and send it to you!

oh no don't bother making a new one for me (thanks for the offer though) i actually agree with you that it looks better like that i just didn't know where the button was.

thanks

No problem mate, that took me 2 minutes!
Here you get the new .msstyle: [link]

Just replace it with the one in Windows/Resources/Themes/Simplex.msstyles

On a side note, you should add links to all the 3rd-party programs/applications you suggest to use with it.
