Maxclear V3.1 theme for Vista by sonicexcess Maxclear V3.1 theme for Vista by sonicexcess
Maxclear V3 Re-release theme created by Sonicexcess. Release date 05.06.07.

UPDATED 03.08.07 TO FIX PROBLEM AFTER WINDOWS UPDATE ERROR

This is an update to my Maxclear V3 theme. New orb and some minor changes to the shell and glass.

There are a lot, and I mean a lot, of very subtle differences in V3 compared to V2. Most people will not see them at
first. But then there are the obvious changes. New start menu with uniformed glass. New flat glass taskbar. New
improved start orb and most of all the more transparent glass all around. There is also a new sidebar style to go
with the theme.There is also the Metallic silver basic theme for people who cant use Aero as seen in V2.


To be able to use this theme you will need a 2 things.

1. Uxtheme patch by Rafael to enable themes in Vista -

or

2. Sidebar styler by Stanimir Stoyanov to be able to use sidebar theme -

This is absolutely my favorite theme for Vista. Sadly, I can no longer use it since I have upgraded to Windows 7. Do you think you could update this theme to work with it? That would be great if you could!

I've been using and loving MaxClear at least a year, even through to Windows 7 Beta. But I had to reformat the HD and go back to Vista. I've done everything as instructed but still my tastbar and start menu are dark (not opaque, but just very dark). Everything else seems to be working. Any idea what I might be missing?

Hey! Ik vind je thema zo te gek! Echt wauw!
Kan hij ook op vista? IK heb geeeen idee hoe dat moet :$ Maar vind m echt heel mooi gemaakt. Zou je misschien kunnen uitleggen hoe dat moet? Je bestanden had k al van 1 of ander forum gehaald, maar kom er niet meer op ( site vergeten ) Maar zou je mij misschien willen mailen hoe ik het thema erop krijg, de readme in t engels kom ik niet echt uit:$ (mn mail is stephy_fct@hotmail.com)

Hey. Any plans to port this to Windows 7?

I sort of prefer this over 3.5, by the way. The changes in 3.1 over the default Vista theme are subtle, whereas 3.5 changes things a little too much in my opinion.

Great work.

I have to admit in some ways I prefer 3.1 myself but I wanted to use some of the suggestions given to me by fans and try to make a fuller theme for people to use and enjoy which is where 3.5 came from.
Windows 7 pretty much looks like my maxclear skins anyway so I dont really have any plans to port it at this time but I may begin to work on the windows 7 skin shortly to make something a little bit more enjoyable for 7

Indeed, MaxClear does resemble 7, especially in that the taskbar is glassed in both. What made your theme so great to me was the removal of the 'shine' and the monochrome start orb and titlebar buttons (min/max/close).

While the 'shine' removal is possible through a glitch in win7 without any 3rd party themes, the latter black and white interface buttons is not quite as easy.

Would you mind at least posting the start orb bitmaps you used? I'd very much like to edit my resources manually at least, since I was a very big fan of the orb you made.

Thanks for replying, sonicexcess!

The new basic theme will work but not the glass theme I'm afraid. All the aero features are disabled in vista basic unfortunately.
