Windows 7 Skull Visual Style by TheDarkenedPoet Windows 7 Skull Visual Style by TheDarkenedPoet
-------------------------------------------------
SUPPORT
-------------------------------------------------

I am very sorry for the current lack of support I have been able to offer to those of the community that are downloading my theme and having issues with installation or removing it.

I have once piece of advice for everyone and that is to create a restore point on your computer before you install mine or any desktop theme that includes system replacement files as it can cause system issues. Creating this restore point means that if anything does go wrong you can always boot into safe mode and restore your computer to a point in time before you installed the theme so that your computer should work fine.

If you have trouble with this then simply google it, there are many easy and simple to follow guides on how to set up a restore point and how to restore.

I am sorry to say that this is also the most support you will get from me until september this years as I am taking a break from the community to prepare for university as I have been accepted to study Video Game Art and I have a great deal of work to complete for my portfolio.

Thanks and I hope you keep downloading and favouriting my creations :)

ICONS
------------------------------------------------

Right a lot of people have been messaging me asking how to install the icons and as i have no time at the moment due to my job and having to go to college / do extra work for university i have not be able to reply to everyone i would liek to say that to install the icons either download stardocks icon packagerm there is a 30 day free trial or it can be purchased for you can download this =

[link]

this is a free program that will apply the icons to your desktop icons and start menu short cuts, however to change folder icons you will need a program such as iconpackager or to manually edit the imageres.dll file with restorator or reshack


------------------------------
INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO INSTALL
------------------------------

IMPORTANT, BEFORE YOU FOLLOW THE STEPS BELOW CREATE A RESTORE POINT ON YOUR
COMPUTER IN CASE IT GOES WRONG SO THAT YOU CAN EASILY RESTORE AND UNDO ANY
CHANGES MADE DURING THE STEPS BELOW, IF YOU HAVE ANY OTHER CONCERNS PLEASE
CONTACT ME ON DEVIANT ART.


Step 1: Download the Universal Theme Patcher from this website :
[link]
Run the program and patch all the available files.

Without using the above patch the theme will not work!

Step 2: Go into C:WindowsResourcesThemes and copy into this folder the visual
style folder named "skull" this includes the skull msstyle file and two other
folders en-us and shell. Once you have copied the visual style folder into that
directory you must then copy the skull.theme file into this folder also
(C:WindowsResourcesThemes). Once you have copied over the files simply double
click the skull.theme file and it should automatically apply the theme.

Step 3: Download the Start Orb Changer from this website to change your start button.
[link]
There are instructions on the website that show you how to use the program.

Now you are finished and the transformation is now complete. I hope you enjoy this
visual style and thank you for your download and support.

Thanks for your download once again. Darkened.

Hi, i love your theme !:D (Big Grin)Love    However , i have been having problems for the last 2 days trying to install the icons . 7conifer does not recognize the file and stardocks doesnt have the xml file to specify which icon goes to what (i figured this out myself) . I am not a programmer and cannot write code , thus i really hope that you can solve this  or tell me how you yourself installed the icons in the descriptions in details :hmm:  i know that you are very busy in school. i just hope that you will help me with this very problem as i will not give up until the icons is installed into my computer.my email is franknathaniel@icloud.com Thank you so much in advanceHug :D (Big Grin) :happybounce:

hello, I love the theme! :) But after I did a 'critical' windows 7 update the theme no longer work properly - it reverts back to widows classic theme, but with the grass wallpaper. Any idea what the problem is? :(

Nope, I used a resource editing program to replace the start button images within the explorer exe itself. Thanks for downloading.

However I have now changed it so that I have supplied the actually start orb image, as I have just realised the explorer.exe included was incredibly outdated and probably no longer safe to use. The instructions have now been updated accordingly :)
