Planisphere for Windows 7 by Nittiyh Planisphere for Windows 7 by Nittiyh
Planisphere for Windows 7

UPDATE MAY 20, 2013

Winamp, AvePreview and PotPlayer skins now available, see them in action here: cathycatchy.deviantart.com/art…

Winamp: www.deviantart.com/art/Planisp…
AvePreview & PotPlayer: cathycatchy.deviantart.com/art…

Thanks to cathycatchy for the amazing contribution to the suite. :D

Also, I promised a Windows 8 port, I haven't forgot about it, I've simply had no time at all to work on it because of school.
It'll come eventually, when school is over. Hang in there ;)

===========================================

UPDATE FEB 12, 2013

Anyone using this and uTorrent most likely encountered problems. I fixed that, please re-download :)

Also I forgot to say, I use this www.askvg.com/how-to-remove-pr… with this theme to get rid of the title bar icons :)

===========================================

Here it finally is. I worked my ass off on this one :D
It took me a while due to school and life being busy and also 'cause of me being rusty with this stuff.
Hadn't made a proper theme in years.

Anyway I'm going to keep it short here, install notes are included in the zip, so if you have a question, make sure the answer isn't in there first ;)

Downloaded the uxtheme tool, and then after restarting put the files into the Theme folder. After that I was able to select the theme, but the taskbar looked really off (some of the icons were all white/transparent) so I used the uxtheme tool again and now it looks like this. After that I followed the instructions for putting in the explorer frame stuff and restarted after that. There wasn't been a change though :/

The scrollbar and ribbon look weird and there is a dash right above the x. Also for some reason the date/time wouldn't change to remove the day of the week (to make it look not as crunched up).

Love these themes though, so much better than the default. Halp Plox

This theme doesn't support higher DPI settings. Set your DPI settings to 100% (lowest) and it should fix everything :)

Any help?

I'm not completely sure. User error. I messed up the first time and had to restore the computer. I guess I'm just kind of scared to mess with system 32.

Understandable. I tried to make the instructions as clear as possible though, and as long as you follow them exactly you will be fine.
Also if you're confused about a step you can just ask me and I'll try and clear it up for you :)

Hey, thank you! You could uninstall the font (kroeger) if you have installed it and fonts should appear a little bigger.

Well thank you! :D Try renaming it first, then rename the backup one to it's original name ("explorerframe.dll") then you can delete mine. :)

Is there a way to get the taskbar like before whitout changing theme ? i don't like the big rectangle, i prefer just a little square with the icon. but awesome theme :D
Reply
:iconnittiyh:
Nittiyh Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2014  Student Interface Designer
Hey, thanks for the nice words! You can't really change it, but the trick is it stretches the rectangles to take as much space as it can. If you want smaller rectangles, you've got to pin more stuff to the taskbar :)

You need to patch your system files. If you have already done it, you need to do it again. :)

ctrl+alt+delete and start task manager. Then file > New task > Browse and you can navigate to the right folder and rename your files.

That's a problem with the explorerframe. Did you install both files correctly? Try to install them again.

hey! i switched to windows 8.1 & i missed Planisphere tbh , so my question is there any possibility to have it in windows 8.1 ? if no , how can i at least get a similar taskbar in my current theme ( width of taskbar splitted into numbers of icons ) ? also is there any guide to "how to make windows 8 VS from scratch " & thnxx in advance ^^

:iconnittiyh:
Nittiyh Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2014  Student Interface Designer
Thanks for the interest I really appreciate it! But I don't have plans to make it available on Windows 8/8.1.
To get the taskbar items to automatically fill up all the available space, it's a simple little trick you can achieve with Windows StyleBuilder software.
However it's somewhat risky to use as it is not 100% stable and I've messed up my machine many times even with some years of experience.
I'm not sure I would recommend it.
But if you do decide to give it a try (if you do it in a virtual machine there's no risk for your computer) then you can find many guides and tips on the forums at www.vistastylebuilder.com/

with pleasure , & is pretty sad that we won't be able to use it again ^^ , anyways i'm sure that once you start making win8 themes u'll make another masterpiece n_n
i downloaded vista style builder but don't know which property i need to change exactly to make the "fill up " effect ??
also i need to thank you abt your kindness & sharing with me informations , is really nice from you

BTW how can you change the icons of the music, documents, video etc... folders ?
