Elysium 0.4.1: Litestep by Ashtefere Elysium 0.4.1: Litestep by Ashtefere
Elysium 0.4.1

Well, Elysium is what I think should be the ultimate in useability for any user interface.
It has been designed from the ground up to be intuitive. Tabs like firefox/ie7 for your open tasks,
contextual custom start menu's (more on that later) a system info area and slick graphics.
Its a pretty simple and self explanatory theme.

INSTALLATION

You MUST propogate the start menus. This is done by going to the theme folder and putting your own
working shortcuts into the STARTMENU folder's subfolders. This is essentially building your own start
menu.
Also, you MUST add an evar for litestep called "burning" for the burning button to work.
I think thats about it.

FEATURES

*autohiding taskbar. When not in use it will slide out of view
*Nearly every transition is smooth and alphafaded.

NOTE!!!!!!
This is an EARLY BETA of the LITESTEP THEME! it does NOT include the elysium windowblinds, which I
am still heavily developing.

FEATURES TO COME
-Winamp controls (though these will be toggled on/off as most people use cd cover art)
-Maybe desktop icons
-Whatever you suggest

Any suggestions for improvements please post them.

Hope you enjoy it!

-Ash

P.S. INSTALL THE FONT! (in misc folder)

Ok, nevermind. I figured it out. Something so little made such a big difference.

*Label panel_main
panel_mainalphamap
panel_mainX
~3

In the theme.rc file, under *Label panel main, remove the "~" before the 3 and all your alignment issues will be solved.

This is a really awesome theme, thanks. There's one thing I find a little irritating though, the start panel submenu is overlapping the main panel buttons, can't click on them this way. The submenu needs to be shifted over to the right. I would do it myself but I can't find any X and Y coordinates for the submenu in the theme.rc. Please help!

Just had a try with this, i think the bottom bar should be at the top and the top bar should be swapped out for a movable "dock box" which disappeared when nothing was showing.

very nice theme, just dont like top and bottom bars!

I have to say - thank you :)

was on the verge of giving up on litestep before trying this theme out.

They either didn't work at all, or there seems to be some odd bug with transparency on just about every single one of them.

This is probably the only one that works out of the box.

Just probably the only change I did was remove the start bar, since it wasjust too large for my liking :)

TO ALL PEOPLE EXPERIENCING CRASHES/FREEZES: My solution to fixing the freezing/crashing when it first loads up, is to change your screen resolution to something larger than 1024x768. After you do that, the theme should start working properly.

and Ashtefere, please make the final version compatible with a screen resolution of 1024x768 =)

this skin is so awesome! and i'm able to edit some settings the way i want to have it allthough i have no coding skills ^^ but there is one question i have:

i dont like the fading action by opening one of the menues in the left corner. you mentioned the line "globalfading_customalphafade 20 1" in an earlier comment, but this only changed the fading time of the right-click-menue. so what do i have to do to set the fading of? i'm unable to figure that out.

extract the zip to either

or

or

<Litestep Installation Folder>\<Rest From Above>

this might be a n00bish question, but I'm new to litestep. What do I do with the .rc file? All the other themes I used are .lsz, which I just double-clicked.

danfreighttrain all you do is extract the folder to your litestep themes folder. Mines C:\LiteStep\themes\ . Then recycle and you should see it in the list of themes.

Forgot to mention....
I like the font unlike alot of others
I agree that the start menu is a little too big
I think that a native Windows theme should be made (not everyone likes Windowblinds).
Other than that, it's perfect.
And what is an "evar"?
Reply
:icontadams88:
tadams88 Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2008
Cool theme man!

The evar should be "burner" not burning ;-)

I don't understand what you mean by autohiding task bar? It isn't autohiding for me... is something wrong with my install?

awesome theme, it makes me want to switch to litestep after running your theme. Am i trying to modify it, especially the start menu this thing is huge i would rather have smaller version than having start menu that take a 1/3 of the screen. And also fade in/out it take little bit of time of open up menus. Other than that Good job, can't wait for the updates. :D
