Royale Remixed by oddbasket Royale Remixed by oddbasket
This mod grew from a finishing Royale Noir project to encompass Zune bug fixing as well.

If you are a fan of Microsoft's Royale, this is the only Royale theme you will ever need.

The theme now consists of 3 color schemes, Royale, Royale Noir and Royale Zune.

For Royale Noir, Microsoft came 50% of the way, and I went the other 50%, a lot of work and bugfixes was done to finish the theme.

For Zune, work was done to better the distasteful orange and many bugfixes implemented that Microsoft messed up.

Current version is 1.47, screenshots and the very long changelog can be found in these forum threads:

SP3 users need to run SP3 UxTheme Patcher to load unsigned themes.

Forum

Updated 4th Nov, 2007 to Version 1.47. Read the Changelog in the Readme for the list of changes.

I had to re-up the links to stop the user emails from coming, so I took the opportunity to fix the glitches brought up by users the past year. Thanks for the emails even though I might not have replied to all.

Does anyone know what the source is for the "StartUp" sound?  I know most of the sounds come from Windows Vista Beta 2, but that startup sound isn't in there...

I ask because I want to use these sounds on Windows 7 but want the original stereo 44100Hz 24bit sound files.

I had downloaded this theme (don't remember where from) and had to do a bunch of stuff to get it working. I really loved it once it was functioning... hopefully it works right-off the bat this time.

This theme is Epic!
Just a question, The progress bar when you are copying something, if you have another window over it, the progress bar will describe the wrong amount of progress. It will set the beginning of the bar at the spot where you have covered the progress bar with the window. Now it that because the bar style is one long solid piece? or is it some type of bug?
Anyway, Epic theme, totally and completely Epic!!

Wow, really good! I'd heard of the Royale Noir theme and how it was unfinished and even seen it, and you did a fantastic job finishing where MS left off. Very very good piece of work.

One thing tho, the green loading bar? It looks good but I kinda liked the original that came with it better. Sorry. Still really good tho!

This will only work on Windows XP. Vista uses a new Desktop Manager for the Aero and thus breaks compatability.

This is an incredible theme for XP. I love how you used a lot of the Longhorn sounds; they fit the black theme verry nicely.
I was wondering, is it possible to put a theme like this one in Windows 7? I've seen Luna ported to 7, but never Royale. Certanly not Royale Noir.

I was just thinking about extracting & editing original resources from MSGina.dll to go with my Royale Noir - thanks buddy, you saved my approx 6hrs.

Would you mind if I add it to my Customized Windows XP Installer ?

I love this theme! Thank you oddbasket!

You've been inactive for a while haven't you? I hope you aren't gone forever...

And I have some questions too:
Is this theme compatible with Windows Vista (or maybe Windows 7)? If not, can you port it then? I know I'm asking a lot as a newbie who has no skills to create something like this.

I also wonder if you could change the start-button text when you're on Vista with Xp-theme having the original start button? I guess you can't but then (if this works on Vista/W7) this theme would be absolutely perfect and I could use it maybe 10-20 years depending on OS development. Yeah, maybe I'm a perfectionist in some way. ;)

One more time thanks! (and sorry for my at least partly unclear explanations)
