Litestep on Windows 7UPDATE(9/11/2011): lsdev.org is currently down which is a major bummer because it is a huge resource for the litestep community. from what i've read some kind folks are trying to find a new home for lsdev but i'm not really in contact with anyone so i don't know anything for certain, just what i read online. if you happen to be a new litestep user you picked a somewhat bad time to get into it =/
UPDATE: this tutorial has gotten a lot of attention since i posted it 2 years ago.. so i decided to update the information, add information and even a nice video tutorial by andredk which is a little long, but very detailed. i updated the old journal and submitted a new one for good measure
installing litestep is not a big deal. it has dependencies like any other application, and without them it will error. assuming your system meets all the requirements right now you can stop reading this and install liteste
Windows 7 VS 101 - Font Modification: The Easy WayTutorial is written for users with Windows 7 as to I don't use Windows 8 so, I haven't got the slightest idea whether my way will help you.
I am a custo fiend that has a slight ocd of perfection and alignment. I like all colors whether they are flat or loud. The more diverse you let your eyes be, the stronger your creativity will be! Enough about me, it is time to talk about YOU**
Have you ever stumbled upon a Visual Style for Windows 7 that you wanted to use but could not push yourself to keep using it because of the fontface chosen by the original creator? (No hard feelings, everyone has their own tastes) Well, there is a way you can easily change the font face appended to the visual style (theme).
I will show you a way where you need not knowledge of coding but the simple skill of reading. Yes. However, there are 2 and only 2 additional programs/tools that you will have to obtain yourself to modify the original set font to the desired font of your choosing.
Theming on Windows 10 TH2This is the correct way to get your themes working in TH2 *using UxStyle*. DO NOT use the messy methods that are around that replaces your dlls with the OLD RTM olds to get the patchers working. This is very unsafe and introduces its own bugs. Option 3 is the correct way to theme, also left my tut on how to do it with windows system builder if you have a copy.
Option 2: Using Windows System Builder if you have it.. (much safer but must be re-launch app every reboot and app must stay running)
1) Install UxStyle
1b) Install "windows system builder" ( this is what all VS developers use to make the themes for windows)
2) Run the program once install and the launcher will start, click the launch option twice.
3) Do not worry about all the buttons and stuff lol (at less you want to learn how to make your own or tweak a VS you have)
4) Click "file"
5) click "open" and go to the folder where you have the VS you want to run
6) Once that is done, click the "test" icon.
