How to make a msstyles

Post by Rosh »

How are msstyles made?
Any program that do that? Is it Open Source?
A ReactOS theme editor?

"Lautus" is the only that is included in ReactOS.
Editing Lautus theme to make a new one is an option?

ReactOS should have a new theme inspired in Windows 7 theme, or some fixes in Lautus theme.

Here is one tutorial.
I have never used this tutorial!
However, I did use TGTSoft Style Builder.
That was not a successful attempt for me, cause I was lazy.
Anyway, you should be able to access TGTSoft's website through the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine.
The website may contain valuable information.
Good luck.
Have fun.

If anyone know of the manual method then please do share.

Yes, making a copy of Lautus and editing it is the recommended way.
Most tools out there use modified versions of Microsoft's styles as a basis for new ones, which is not okay for ROS.
