Luna Element v5.1 Blue by tornado5 Luna Element v5.1 Blue by tornado5
Luna Element v5.1 Blue, is a Windows XP visual style and is inspired by the WinXP default theme Luna. A few parts are still in original design so I can't take credit for everything. This theme is also inspired a little by the Windows Vista GUI. It's a nice combination of old and new in my opinion.

To use this theme you need to patch the Windows system file uxtheme.dll. You can read about how to do that here: [link]

When you have patched uxtheme.dll you place the .msstyle in desired folder and run it.

If you want to use the included Logon place 'logonui_blue.exe' in C:\ and run the included logonui_install.reg.

Before reporting any bugs try and think of and explaination why the bug occurs and don't assume immediately it's a VS problem. Here are 2

"bugs" I know of:
* Black text background for checkboxes in some applications. (Application bug)
* In Firefox the scrollbar glyph doesn't change color on hover. (Firefox bug)
* Multi row taskbar does not look good. (Theme)

Modifications and application skins
Sure, no need to contact me about it. A link to my DeviantArt page is appreciated.

Wallpaper available here: [link]

Don't forget to let me know what you think :) This theme is concidered finieshed, so if you don't like it, don't use it.

If you want you can support my work by donating. Visit: [link]

No shellstyle? That's right. Disable it.

Update: Fixed the toolbar background. Removed white line at the top so it looks better in IE7. I think it looks better everywhere else too. :)

Best theme for windows XP EVER. I would like to see the menubar bugs being fixed (sometimes, items on menubar have a white background and menubar is too big in open/libreoffice). If someone knows where this can be fixed in the .msstyles file.

This has been my favourite theme for YEARS. A much better theme than the Luna. I also really like switching it up with the black sometimes.

tornado5 Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2010
Just look at what others have done and try to do it better/differently, in a way that's appealing to yourself and others. That's what I've tried to do.

can i have this skin but with black color???
Kliesh Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2010
Nice one thank you
joediamond1992 Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2010
I think you should make more than just black and blue. I think red would look nice, or maybe even white. Nonetheless, excellent job!

Would you mind if I ported this to Windows 7?
tornado5 Featured By Owner May 28, 2010
Not at all.
Satukoro Featured By Owner May 28, 2010
Alright, thanks.

Even on Windows 7, running a Windows Blinds version, this visual style looks perfect and adapts without flaw.

Kudos, this really is fine workmanship to have designed a theme that can survive not one, but two revisions of windows. :D
flatsol Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2009
oh i see. it's a Vista-looking theme, for XP, mainly the gloss gradient on the taskbar?

good work. you made a lot of people happy, i guess.
dbutlr29 Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2009
This is a sleek sick design. It's amazing that independent designers can come up with visual styles that shit 100x over on the Microsoft default style. XP's default toolbar is flat clunky and ugly.
andreaippo Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2009
I really adore both LE Black and Blue, but I'm also REALLY missing a green one.
Couldn't you make it, perhaps in an olive green similar to the default Luna style?
I'd really appreciate it, there are too less green styles, and no one is comparable to what a green LE would be.

Thanks a lot :)

This is probably the best theme for Windows XP I ever found, but I wish there is an olive version.

can't seem to get it to work.. i did the uxtheme.dll and unzipped the msstyle from 7z, but when i run it, it's not in the lists.
redp1004 Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2009
cool- thanks man :)
EmoFantasy Featured By Owner May 23, 2009  Student Digital Artist
its not working :( im downloading it as a '7z' file. i open it with style xp 2.0, but an error message comes up saying its not downloaded properly or something.
tornado5 Featured By Owner May 23, 2009
.7z is a compressed file format. You need to decompress it with 7-zip or an other application that supports this file type.

ohhh i see. thanks :)

Wonderful. Marvelous. There isn't enough words to describe it. "Superbe". "Wunderbar".

Just a thing : On French Windows, like Start menu is called "démarrer", there is a little blue space at left of start menu.
DorianVonRichter Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2009
Love it. Have been using ver. 5.0.5. Only question, can you make the login in a format for LogonStudio? I know that is a lot to ask, but I would really appreciate it!!!! Thanks.

Absolutely unbelievably amazing Visual Style! I am currently using it, and it is in my top 3 for sure.

Everything about it is so perfect, from the taskbar to the buttons.

Great job, man, and continue making groundbreaking themes like this.
