[OLD] Experimental builds


Recommended Posts

 

atlas's are easy enough - a few hours work [at most] in photoshop gets most things as i want it - themes are a different problem but they are again possible - anything is better than the bland rubbish Microsoft want us to use

Get back to us when you got 'er done!  LOL

 

 

leave it to you - we all want different things in it - like i say its not hard - photoshop - reshacker [or similar] and a bit of patience

Thing is, without Big Muscle's software supporting the translation between graphic elements in the PNG and the needs of the OS, it gets too tedious to keep changing the graphics to match.

 

Microsoft's strategy is to wear tweakers down - quite clearly - and it's working.

I'm using this one: http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/174668-experimental-builds/page-6#entry1112005, Noel's SquareCornersNoExtraColor10586.png.  Made a substantial improvement.  Am I missing something or is this a proper theme atlas for this build?  I'm running 10586, not any insider build.

Yes, those go together fine.

 

Big Muscle's software uses the information in the .layout file to map the theme atlas graphics to the needs of the OS.

Got an incompatibility error that specified Aero Glass for 8.1+ (using build 1.4.5) after installing cumulative update KB3140743 that brings build 10586 to 10586.122, but it went away after a second re-boot.  Anyone else experience this?

Yes, it's supposed to download debug symbols if something significant has changed, and it appears to have done so.

 

I'm happy to report Aero Glass seems to have been able to re-hook build 10586.122 after the symbol download okay.  It still seems to work.

Not NoelC but I found a method on how to manually download symbols that someone posted here a while back

Just follow the instructions here http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/174355-aero-glass-for-win81-14/page-4#entry1107168

It will only auto-download the symbols if you have a valid donation.key.  I should have mentioned that before.  You probably do, but just thought I'd throw that out there.

 

I recall in past history it has taken days to work for some folks.  I don't think reinstalling is going to help.

I can't advise further.  Perhaps Big Muscle has some ideas why symbols downloading might be balky for some folks.  He'll probably ask you for your debug.log file from the AeroGlass folder.
