ZEUS and POSEIDON by ZEUSosX ZEUS and POSEIDON by ZEUSosX
ZEUS & POSEIDON
-----------------------

ZEUS & POSEIDON is a work based in my Macos X for Windows 7 Themes.

17 / 4 / 2010 update and reuploaded

One New theme Added which having 24 pixel height taskbar.
this is usefull because you can set it before shutdown or log off, then you can put to your C:/Users/yourusernamehere/AppData/Local/Microsoft/Windows/Themes your favour theme there so every time you log in your favour theme with the 22 pixel [smaller, mac style taskbar will be loaded] see Tips 4 text in this page.
so you can have small size taskbar, everytime you log in, doing only 1 clik before shutdown or log off.

*******
If all this seems difficult to new users , just do that :
you can select before shutdown the Dion 24 theme so everytime you log in you can select one of the other themes that have the smaller mac style 22 pixel taskbar.
so the taskbar will remain small and not be bigger from windows system as it happens now.
thats it.
*******

These visual styles in this pack i have made for working with my system files i have made and exist in my Macos X for Windows 7.

------

ZEUS & POSEIDON story.

IN ancient and in nowdays Hellenic (=Greek) [Active CODE] language, every letter, and every word is a specific number, and it has a specific meaning.
POSEIDON is was the god of the sea, earthquakes and horses. Although he was officially one of the supreme gods of Mount Olympus, he spent most of his time in his watery domain.
Poseidon was brother to Zeus and Hades. These three gods divided up creation. Zeus was ruler of the sky, Hades had dominion of the Underworld and Poseidon was given all water, both fresh and salt.
ZEUS ( or DEUS or DIAS) is Master of immortal Gods in Hellenic (=Greek) Active CODE [arithmetic machine logic] language, and APPLE is the given gift from ZEUS .

So the name of the THEME choosen from Hellenic = GREEK language and civilization.

******

This is a Work from Hellas = Greece.
Is dedicated to All people of Earth who support : the Hellenic = Greek History, Philoshophy, Civilization and the Greek people.

********

ZEUS & POSEIDON THEME/VISUAL STYLES

These visual styles have made to be worked with my system files i have made and exist in my Macos X for Windows 7.

So for having Mac OS X style system behaviour , When forinstance we select a folder as 'icon', we have separate mouse over image for the folder and other image for the text , and when we select a folder as 'details' we can have stripes, and mouse over images like mac os X , blue hover and white text,
you must also download my Macos X for Windows 7.

The navigation buttons exist to explorerframe.dll, the apple start orb to explorer.exe and the icons to imageres.dll and to shell32.dll, AND does not included to this pack, so you have to downloaded from my Macos X for Windows 7 Themes.

so if you have a Windows 7 32 bit system download my:

Macos X for Windows 7 - 32bit [link]

if you have a Windows 7 64 bit system download my:

Macos X for Windows 7 - 64bit [link]

and follow the instructions of them ,
BUT use the wallpapers and Themes and visual styles from This pack.

------

I N S T R U C T I O N S

so here FIRST: UNZIP the file.

1. To use the visual styles ( mstyle) , you must install a small application, download from [link] .
Credits goes to Rafael Rivera for this amazing work. Then restart your system.

2. Copy the folder 'OS X Cursors' , to C:\Windows\Cursors .

Copy the 'Mac os X Wallpapers' of this pack to C:\Windows\Web\Wallpaper.

Copy the 'Mac os X sounds' of this pack to C:\Windows\Media .

3. Copy all the folders included in the folder 'Macos X Themes by ZEUSosx' [after unzip all files, and copy them to C:\Windows\Resources\Themes ,provided C is your Windows drive).

[if you have already using my 'Macos X for Windows 7', use the visual styles and wallpapers of this = 'ZEUS and POSEIDON' pack please]

Copy all the folders included in the folder 'New Themes by ZEUSosx' [after unzip all files, and copy them to C:\Windows\Resources\Themes, provided C is your Windows drive). These new visual styles/themes have biger titlebar and more symetrical vertical distances in titlebar. [link]

Open there ["C:\Windows\Resources\Themes"] and choose the theme name you like, select it, double clik tand thats it.

4. Go to Desktop Personalize & apply the theme you preffer.

--------

MAIN LIMITATIONS AND CONDITIONS OF USING

1. do not change border padings.

2. do not change font size (leave it 96 dpi font size).

3. taskbar must be resized every time we log in, if we want 'small icons' in it, as Windows 7 internal code streched it to bigger dimentions.

4. for close distance between close,min,max buttons Ave's application [still beta] , CloseButtonChanger needed.

5. for adding shadows effect around your Windows, needed the freeware controlable application YzShadow.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tips
-------

-1. For having to the left side the min, max, close buttons, use please leftsider. [link]

-2. For having close the min,max,close buttons an Ave's application needed CloseButtonChanger needed, (login to
[link] ) , transparent and brushed styles will use number : 1.237 , leopard styles will use number : 1.45 .

-3. ADDING SHadows effect around your Window.
For having shadows and have better of the theme looking, please use YzShadow [link]
For the Gray (leopard) styles when using Yz shadow its better to follow the values i give you. [link] , for the rest themes [link] [link] [link] also with YzShadow you can have transparent menus ,to any of my themes following my values : [link]

-4. The windows 7 system behaviour to 22 pixel (small icon) taskbar is unbelieveable not applicable!
That means that everytime you log in to your system, taskbar becomes bigger[than 22pixels], and you have manually do this:
right clik to taskbar, select Properties, Uncheck Use small icons, Resize your taskbar as possible small, then check Use small icons and that s it.
To my system[32 bit win 7 rtm] I do this, i set first small icons taskbar size on top of desktop, after i set before shut down, or log off etc the taskbar to the bottom , when i log in i set the taskbar to the top and works ok.

if u forgot, do this set the taskbar to bottom, logoff, then log in set it to top. its quiq . thats it.

[if you select instead of shutdown, 'sleep' or 'hybernate', the taskbar remains as is, no need to set it down]

NEW SOLUTION FOR TASKBAR [ YOU NEED ONLY ONE CLIK]

NEW METHOD FOR TASKBAR: [what you have to do is only 1 clik before shut down, or restart or log off your computer]

----

How it works

BEFORE shut down, or restart or log off SET aero theme.
[i will EXPLAIN after where you can set the aero style theme for ease access of it. instead of my solution you can set it everywhere you preffer or you right clik to desk top , personalize select aero. to my method i setted to a toolbar of your taskbar for fast access by you]

copy to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup your favour custom theme.

thats it.


so:
------------------------------------------------------

A ---. enabling quiq launch toolbar to the taskbar.
[u can set aero style theme in any toolbar of your taskbar, for example you can use 'links' toolbar]

1. Right clik to your windows taskbar. Deselect Lock the taskbar.

2. Again Right clik to your windows taskbar.

a.Then Right-click the taskbar -> Toolbars -> New toolbar

b. type the following into the "folder" field - "C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch", where username is your user name on your user account.

c. click 'Select folder'.

d. now you can rearrange the Quick Launch into it's classic position.

3. a. right-click the Quick Launch and uncheck "Show Text". right-click again to uncheck "Show

Title".

b. size the title-less and label-less Quick Launch area to your liking.

B---. RIGHT clik to your desktop, personalize, select Dion 24 theme, then change the desktop background selecting forexample a mac style background wallpaper one as the 'DefaultDesktop'.

save changes.
then also select 'sounds', select mac osx, apply , ok, save the changes. then, Save Theme with a

name you preffer.
THEN:

GO to C:/Users/Your User Name Here/AppData/Local/Microsoft/Windows/Themes

Drag the theme you just made it, to your quiq launch toolbar, in taskbar.
If you like you can right clik to the shortcut of the theme that has appeared after the drag to your quiq launch toolbar, in taskbar, select properties, change icon, so select an icon you preffer.
[if you have download my [link] you can also have to choose to some from icons exist to C:\Taskbar shortcuts\icons , otherwise you use any other from your system files or a custom one or leave it as is]

C---. Go to C:/Users/Your User Name Here/AppData/Local/Microsoft/Windows/Themes or to

C:\Windows\Resources\Themes find your favourite mac style theme , copy it and paste it to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

D---. Before shut down, or restart or log off, go to your taskbar and select your Dion 24 style theme you have put there.

when log in , the mac style should be automatically will aplied it to your desktop.

thats it. [with only 1 clik before shut down, or restart or log off]

-----------
*******
If all this seems difficult to new users , just do that :
you can select before shutdown the Dion 24 theme so everytime you log in you can select one of the other themes that have the smaller mac style 22 pixel taskbar.
thats it.
********
--------

-5. I have visual styles with no looking Folderband [is the toolbar that it has Buttons Commands like 'Organise', 'System Properties' etc] and other with always appearing Folderband. For open the folderband to the styles that is not appeared, please have a look to my Auto-hide Folderband of win 7, [link] where is written SOLUTION FOR WINDOWS EXPLORER , MY COMPUTER WINDOW STYLE. / SOLUTION FOR WINDOWS EXPLORER , WHEN YOU HAVE DETAILS PANE AT THE TOP. etc

Also included 3 styles with designed buttons in the area of addressbar for some users asks to me to make some versions like those i first made in vista in my ZEUS os X F OS for vista [ [link] ]

So i made : Dion XW (transparent version), Alexandros XW (brushed version) and Leopard XW (gray version).


also NEW ONES: Dion IIII (transparent version), Alexandros IIII (brushed version) and Leopard III (gray version).

For some reason my taskbar hasn't changed. It still looks the same. I'm pretty sure I followed your directions. I see that the time/clock on the taskbar changed, but I still have the 'Windows' start orb.

What?! It are only four steps you need to follow and then you've got the theme already... (Then of course you need to change it to your preferred settings, but that's the case with every theme...)

It's the safest way of installing new themes I've ever seen, normally I need to demolish all kind of Windows files which makes it hard to get rid of the theme when I don't want it anymore. (Especially when my system restore function decides not to work.)

its because i explain to users everything.

if i silent you will not say anything.

the truth is this: microsoft's windows 7 native code has really problems in some parts of appearing and working.

for example, original osx taskbar's height dimentions is 22 pixel.
but the native windows7 code has false or be made not working correct ,
so in the new Appolon themes i made a bigger than original osx taskbar's height dimentions and i set this to 24 pixels which works.

now if u want visual styles which are very close to original osx dimentions, this here ZEUS and POSEIDON is a good choice.

now, if u want just working in a non osx dimentions [forexample to taskbar having bigger size] download APPOLON THEMES for windows 7 [link]

so if i wrotte only 2 lines in text instructions, perchaps some people found more elegant and simple, but the fact for me is to show to people whats going on and how they will solve it.

infact the steps are clear and simple.
the problems are made by microsoft [code] not from me.

if u are a user wich u will not like to think alot then use the Appolon theme [link]

set my 24 Dion theme before shutdown or log off and when log in use any other them ith smaller size taskbar.
so taskbar will not be exploded.[aternatively, set the taskbar to the bottom before shutdown or log off and when log in set it to the top.

the title icon of the corner of window and the text of title of window in aero mode is hard coded so i can't transport them to the center of the window.

So i made : Dion XW (transparent version), Alexandros XW (brushed version) and Leopard XW (gray version).
see [link] , [link] , [link]
plus a new wallpaper which i have made in the style of this iPad's sea wave background [link]

ALSO the NEW ones : Dion IIII (transparent version), Alexandros IIII (brushed version) and Leopard IIII (gray version).

but its possible to add sone new, remaking only the taskbar to them, so if people want larger 24 pixel taskbar then i could add additionally + 12 themes/visual styles with 24 pixel height taskbar.


perchaps those are my last works in themming world, so what i do lately is just modify my work for the needs of people.
thank u for your support wallybescotty.

i just not made those before , because its not in osx style, but the most important, smaller size is most elegant, so it was like to say ok , we accept that microsoft can make any false to code and we have to foolow this, a thing which i dont like but if people want i can give addidtionaly 24 pixel to all my themes taskbar.

Hello ZeusOsX, i'm the administrator of Pittorifamosi.it [link] and i took the liberty of reviewing your theme considered as the best theme for windows 7 mac-like graphics.
I applied your theme but I found problems:
- The first problem was about the clock and i resolved it with the additional theme that you prepared.
- Second, i resolved the pixel problem with the desk bar following your TIPS 4. "only one click" :P
But now I saw that you made a top bar "Dion 24" that had no problem after the reboot. I wonder why this bar is not applied directly to all the other themes? The differences is only 2 pixels.. and for me it can be the best to have a 24px deskbar with my favorite theme that is Aexandros III.
Good work, my most sincere congratulations.
And sorry for my bad english! :)

this small 'bugs' appears because unfortunately, 3rd party applications based on microsoft aero images for making an application for windows.

also this could happen if for example you use a browser like Opera and you use Windows native skin. i explain u the reson. to opera you can use skins that have been made specially for the web browser, but to google translate unfortunately, if i am right , there is no custom [google] skin.

the problem is this: i can not explain u further here [i did many times before to many forums], as microsoft made its elements in square type, apple in circle type [buttons etc] so when we use circle images to applications that the designers of them supposed that because u use windows you will use a square type button, they dont mind to change the code or the style of it.
this can not be correct from people like me,when we make the visual style images in circle [mac] style.
sorry the windpows system should give me the ability to design different buttons for explorer's using and different for applications using. but this not exist, so i can not fix because the system dont give me the ability to do.
--
but those are minor problems, though no good.
microsoft has left some things in code,'unfinished', thats my opinion, and i dont see any will for fix them.

no problem with english, me having problems with also.

so it is worked, thats the most important.
in my shell32.dll the only kind of code i have changed is parameters affect to some parts of the window, like setting details pane at the top.
also i have added icons , and some bmp images, so noone , i think of them i have changed, has affect 'i think' with the sound playing problem. but we can do an experiment, if you like and have time.

make a restore point.

Take obtain and permissions to your original microsoft file shell32.dll [i think you have alsready done], now copy it to 2 different folders, 1 for a backup in any case needed, and one forexample to your desktop.

now go to my shell32.dll that u have to some folder in your pc and rename it, for example to shell32mac.dll , ok?
copy it also to your desktop, now download restorator [i think there is also a trial version of it, i use the paid one], and do this.

open you shell32.dll with restorator, that exist to your desktop.
then open my renamed shell32mac.dll that also exist to your desktop, ok?

to the left side make one left clik to UIFILE,[normal its the 7 vertical choice] then right clik to it select copy.
then go to your opened with restorator original shell32.dll find find UIFILE, then right clik to it select paste, ok then save.

NOW go to your C:\Windows\System32 find your shell32.dll and rename it as shell32originalmicrosoft.bak so to remember which is the original file[even if we have back up it, all this we do for security reasons] ok?, then copy from your desktop the saved shell32.dll that has only the code parameters copied , to your C:\Windows\System32 .

be sure that u have done this well and that the file u have copied named shell32.dll , ok?

now restart.
does your sound plays ok?

if yes, copy from the desktop the shell32.dll inside a folder and named the folder '1 only muifile changed', so now if this file worked ok to your pc you know that is the one for u.

Now open again with restorator, to the saved shell32.dll that exist to your desktop.
then open my renamed shell32mac.dll that also exist to your desktop, ok?

to the left side make one left clik to 'ICON',[normal its the 12 vertical choice] then right clik to it select copy.
then go to your opened with restorator shell32.dll find find 'ICON', then right clik to it select paste, ok then save.[it takes a little time because of the size of the icons].

NOW go again to your C:\Windows\System32 find your shell32.dll and rename it as shell32.bak1 so to remember, ok?, then copy from your desktop the saved shell32.dll that has the code parameters and the icons copied , and copy it to your C:\Windows\System32 .

restart, if the sound plays ok, after , save from desktop the saved shell32.dll to ac folder named '2 uifile and icons'

now do the same , open with restorator, my file find 'bitmap' [10th vertical choice ] copy paste to you file , save, rename the shell32.dll that exist to C:\Windows\System32, to shell32.bak2 and copy from your desktop the saved shell32.dll, restart, does sound plays ok?
if u have time and u do that , that will be usefull also for other people having this not understundable problem and we can have some possible results of the problem.

its because of the changing of system files.
in the exploreframe.dll which i use, i have changed the code to ork with my mac styles and as possible compatible with aero.
the only small incompatibilities its when we select our folders as 'details' so that yellow surface appeared.
what we can do is this:
or i can upload [if u ask] an aero visual style[theme] compatible with my exploreframe.dll system files
or if you want the microsoft version of exploreframe, and not my mac style one, [if u have the 32 bit version win 7] you have to rename the system file exploreframe.dll you use in C:\Windows\System32 to exploreframe.bak1 forexample and the original microsoft one you have there [if u followed the instructions] rename it from ExplorerFrame.old to ExplorerFrame.dll , logof, log in , thats it.

but if you want i can include an aero compatible version and reupload the themes.
[but when we selected folders as icons style would also work in mac style].

Hi ZEUSosX,

I have a problem when I change my Vs back to standar Win7 before Turning off my computer, it is that the Explorer background is Yellow in the DETAILED view, and restoring my Explorer.exe to the original one would not bring back the white background. Do u have any idea?

you have to open folder band and select organise, Layout deselect DETAILS pane.

1.I have made visual styles/themes that have already opened the folderband like
Dion AF X ,Alexandros AF X
and Leopard AF X.
To those is ease to find the organise command button to the left side of your folder band of your window select organise, Layout deselect DETAILS pane.

2.For the rest because styles because i hsave setted autohide the folderband and the folderband does not open smooth like vista, but flickers up and down, you have to follow the instructios written to my Auto-hide Folderband of win 7, [link] where is written SOLUTION FOR WINDOWS EXPLORER , MY COMPUTER WINDOW STYLE. / SOLUTION FOR WINDOWS EXPLORER , WHEN YOU HAVE DETAILS PANE AT THE TOP. etc
This method consist by holding continiously the right button of your mouse continiously before selecting a border between the main window area and the upper area, or for making clik to a library button or a library text etc

If all sounds to you difficult follow for now the 1.first method with the styles that have already opened the folderband, and practise more next with the rest.

NEW METHOD FOR TASKBAR: [what you have to do is only 1 clik before shut down, or restart or log off your computer]

----

How it works

BEFORE shut down, or restart or log off SET aero theme.
[i will EXPLAIN after where you can set the aero style theme for ease access of it. instead of my solution you can set it everywhere you preffer or you right clik to desk top , personalize select aero. to my method i setted to a toolbar of your taskbar for fast access by you]

copy to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup your favour custom theme.

thats it.


so:
------------------------------------------------------

A ---. enabling quiq launch toolbar to the taskbar.
[u can set aero style theme in any toolbar of your taskbar, for example you can use 'links' toolbar]

1. Right clik to your windows taskbar. Deselect Lock the taskbar.

2. Again Right clik to your windows taskbar.

a.Then Right-click the taskbar -> Toolbars -> New toolbar

b. type the following into the "folder" field - "C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch", where username is your user name on your user account.

c. click 'Select folder'.

d. now you can rearrange the Quick Launch into it's classic position.

3. a. right-click the Quick Launch and uncheck "Show Text". right-click again to uncheck "Show

b. size the title-less and label-less Quick Launch area to your liking.

B---. RIGHT clik to your desktop, personalize, select aero theme, then change the desktop

name you preffer, for example Aero X.

THEN:

GO to C:/Users/Your User Name Here/AppData/Local/Microsoft/Windows/Themes

If you like you can right clik to the shortcut of the theme that has appeared after the drag to your quiq launch toolbar, in taskbar ,select properties, change icon, so select an icon you preffer.
[if you have download my [link] you can also have to choose to some from icons exist to C:\Taskbar shortcuts\icons , otherwise you use any other from your system files or a custom one or leave it as is]

C---. Go to C:/Users/Your User Name Here/AppData/Local/Microsoft/Windows/Themes or to

C:\Windows\Resources\Themes find your favourite mac style theme , copy it and paste it to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

D---. Before shut down, or restart or log off, go to your taskbar and select your aero style theme
