Metro Dark
fyi, we moved to a new, fresh space. join us there!

for all of u, who, like myself, love dark themes, if for nothing else but to go easy on ur eyes in ur darkish gaming dungeons, i decided to share my Metro Dark mod for this skin.

i was never really happy with steam's gray colors. and recent color changes do not satisfy my need for dark either.

u can preview[g00d1.info] it, and if u like it, download[g00d1.info] it too!

installation is a regular one, as with any skin.

i'll b addressing feedback here, so, b free 2 discuss.

Not gonna lie, this is a pretty heinous thing to do to Dom's skin

it looks pretty terrible, you're using pure black (you never use pure of any color)

imo, what's heinous for any modern design concept is using gray, especially valve's old gray.
ever since i made the switch i can't bare to look at the old colors, it just burns my eyes.

seems both microsoft and, well, most of the modern design world doesn't rly agree with u. nor does my windows skin author, who is a long standing deviantart contributor. and yes, black metro steam skin just blends into my black windows environment, and my eyes say tyvm.

in any case, if u have some positive contribution, such as, for example, color combos to suggest instead, be free to run ur magic.

how is this heinous? people do stuff like this all the time, its called life, welcome to it. its actually a good idea, and the original creator should have implemented other colors. the original skin is great, don't get me wrong, i love it, just wished it was in black.

there will be some small color adjustments with 4.x version.

borders r gray, and i use them brighter to add some context to the layout, but i may adjust them too. my windows skin uses bright borders, for the sake of layout too, so it works fine for me. i need to evaluate it on win10 dark theme...

yeah, actually true gray: FrameBorder="128 128 128 255"
u can change the value if u want, to give it more darker tone... just lower the 1st three numbers, let's say, to anything between 64 and 128.
lower than that may break functionality, but be my guest.

metro dark has been updated to version 4.0, based on latest metro version as of this writing.

enjoy.

differences to vanilla metro:
  • it is dark, obviously!
  • overlay notifications have frameborders
  • bugs out: music player, tooltips
  • colors.styles file again controls most colors
  • default accent color is more fabulous!
