Metro Lite Suite by exsess Metro Lite Suite by exsess
This is simply a mod of Shelkadom's Windows 7 Theme due to a request: [link]
so don't forget to thank him ;)

All I did was remove transparency through personalization and changed the min/max/close buttons and scrollbar sizes, font, and colors.

Inspired by: [link] and Zune Software

Included are the resources needed to achieve what you see in the screenshots.
Note** The wallpaper is customizable to suit your desktop (change it to your name or whatever; just open the .psd file).
-- The quote is from Leonardo da Vinci.


INSTALL
- If you haven't patched your system, use the Universal Theme Patcher included for your bit version.
- You first have to install Shelkadom's theme (included in file), then install the .themepack found in Theme\Metro Lite folder (double click it).
- Install the appropriate IE9 Longhorn explorerframe for your bit version with Se7en File Replacer.
- You will need Metro UI Login from poiZNxx: [link]
---------- Then use my login wallpaper instead of his. ;)
- You will need Metro Clock Screensaver from LeeWhittington: [link]
- Done.






Extras are included for further customization:

Segoe UI Semi Light font - with reghack to set it to system default.

gdipp for 32bit and 64bit to get the smooth font effect seen on Apple.

Classic Shell for explorer: [link]

Mouse sets from myself and tornado5 -

It's almost impossible to make an XP theme, and hardly anybody even uses XP any more. You should upgrade to 7.

To restore system default font, try this: [link]

There should also be a reghack out there that will automatically fix it.

Hey exsess, great theme but I'm wondering how you restore the default font? Font kinda looks blurry at times and smoe applications can't use the font so all the letters are just random characters. Thanks!

exsess Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2012
Thanks! I figured out how to fix the blurry font - the problem actually lies with the font - I'll update the theme some day to address this issue.

Firefox is okay though, but do you know how to fix it?

Sorry for the late reply - been focusing on my studies.

Have you tried messing around with Chrome's default font settings? Seems like a clash between Segoe and Chrome.
I'm also going to address the font issue in my next release - whenever that may be :P
