Revo Black - Style 1

:bulletblue: About Revo Project

Revo gives you a fresh look for your XP machine (SP2 or SP3). If you want to use Revo msstyles you have to patch a system file called "uxtheme.dll".

Q: What is uxtheme?

A: Uxtheme.dll is the file in Windows XP that controls the theming engine. By default, uxtheme.dll is locked, so third party (i.e. non-Microsoft) visual styles cannot be used. Fortunately, it is easy to unlock uxtheme.dll to allow the use of non-Microsoft visual styles.

Google search for a patcher (for XP SP2 or SP3)!

:bulletgreen: How to install?

After you patched the file you must install the fonts (needed for best experience). Copy the fonts into Windows directory\Fonts\. Good, now you have to copy the msstyles into Windows dir/Resources/Themes (or in other folder if you preffer).

:bulletblue: What do i find in the archive?

In the archive you will have 3 folder: Compact, Default and Fonts. Compact and Default are the msstyles folders.

:bulletblue: Why do i need the fonts?

Well, each style and susbtyle contains 3 font types: Tahoma 8pt, SegoeUI 8pt and SegoeUI 9pt.
For the best experience i recommend to enable the ClearType effect (in the Dispay Propereties in the Appereance tab in the Effects).

:bulletgreen: What version is this?

This is the Revo Black with Simple Frame Caption and Start User Picture (Compact and Default). In the Display Propreties the Compact will appear as RevoCB1 and the Default as RevoDB1.

Each state (Compact and Default) contains 4 substyles: Basic, Basic No Frame, Seven, Seven No Frame.

:bulletblue: Where can i get those icons in the screen?

The icons you can find them here (the sticker icons pack): [link]

I like it!

It's not perfect though, i'd LOVE a compact version without the start menu picture.
