@WetBread: valve changed the ui and the website was made before this change.

I am curious on the website how i get my downloads to look like that, any ideas?

Has anyone else lost the button to change the size of the tab with the Metro?

@ツ : library cannot be skinned with the usually method. You can check the discord of the unofficial patch to find out how to skin it

I have a question, why is the background in the library gray and opaque as usual, how to fix it and is it possible to fix it at all?
RedSigma Jul 4 @ 8:01am 
@WikWikLMU: the downloads are on the top right download button. If you look closely it has a progress bar below it
WikWikLMU Jul 4 @ 7:50am 
Why cant i see the downloads at the bottom of the application?

@The Doom Slayer: library can no longer be skinned. However there is an alternative by using a third-party app. Check the unofficial patch discord channel for more info.

Change the library, this new ui is irritating me:steamthumbsdown:
RedSigma Mar 24 @ 9:39am 
@nvm: valve changed how the library works so that cannot be changed by official means. Check out the unofficial patch discord group for a way to skin those
nvm Mar 24 @ 9:03am 
why doesnt it change the library

@RedSigma we have this feature in the original version, why not in metro skin?
RedSigma Mar 14 @ 2:24pm 
@JZNS: it's not possible to add things. Skins can only edit the appearance of existing things
JZNS Mar 13 @ 5:35pm 
We really can't chage the user by the metro interface? its possible add a button for that?

@LoneWolf: Currently there are no news from the developer but the unofficial patch takes care of any possible bugs for now

Is Metro no longer being developed?
RedSigma Jul 14, 2021 @ 7:53am 
@Pappa Blaze: Library and friends panels are no longer skinned cuz valve change the engine
Blaze Jul 13, 2021 @ 8:57pm 
My library section is still showing in blue color. Is this normal or should it be in sync with the black theme of the skin?
RedSigma Jul 1, 2021 @ 7:29am 
@BloodyTiger: you can find it in the pinned discussions. Here is a link:

Thank you @RedSigma, I created the folder yesterday :)
Where's the unofficial patch please? thank you very much!
RedSigma Jun 30, 2021 @ 3:22pm 
@BloodyTiger: if there is no skins folder in steam root , then make folder called skins and put the metro skin folder there. Then it should appear in settings > interface.

If you suffer from major bugs then you could apply the unofficial patch too
BloodyTiger Jun 30, 2021 @ 3:18am 
Update please!! two years with no updates :(
And how is the installation now? there is no skins folder in Steam root.

@RedSigma, understandable and thank you for your work
RedSigma Apr 28, 2021 @ 3:17am 
@AvWoN: If i remember correctly, the author said that he's waiting for valve to add official skin support. Currently metro is only half working (library and friends panel cannot be skinned unless you use a separate app).

Another reason why the patch is kept as separate is because i want it to be like that and also because some people mistake me as being the actual author of the skin, when im not. If the patch would add all the skin files in it then most likely they will forget who the actual author is.

As for the license, i think the metro license is open but as i said above, i want to keep the patch a separate thing. If in the future the whole skin will disappear then i might consider then to integrate all the files into it, with the proper credits given.
AvWoN Apr 24, 2021 @ 7:46pm 
@RedSigma Thank You, huge everything seems fixed. Good work to all the contributors. Is there a reason this does not have an official release? I am not sure who the original creator is but it seems like they are not actively developing or they would have merged your guyses fixes and had a new version in the last year and a half. Is there anything preventing you guys from releasing separate Metro (i.e. Metro 2)? Is the licensing open for you guys to make such a release or is anyone able to get in touch with the original creator to get their blessing? And in case the original developer is infact still active is there a reason they did not merge the community's fixes into a new release?

I always recommend the skin to people but I feel guilty that the official release they will see is broken mess and they see it as such and remove it.
RedSigma Apr 23, 2021 @ 1:34pm 
@AvWoN: The unofficial patch has those problems fixed. You can also disable metro by going the in skins folder and renaming the MetroSkin folder to something else which will disable the skin.
AvWoN Apr 23, 2021 @ 12:42pm 
Many of windows are really messed. For example the settings window has many options that are not accessible. If you go to 'downloads' the downloads throttle is totally gone. The "Remote Play" tab is absolutely fked. Can I disable Metro in the Settings window?

@Ram: you can find it in the pinned discussion. The one for the unofficial patch
Ram Apr 16, 2021 @ 11:25pm 
Whats the discord invite link?
RedSigma Mar 12, 2021 @ 6:27am 
@фпфпф: library cant be skinned by official ways. Valve no longer has support for that. There are other ways which you can find in the discord channel of the unofficial patch
EPIC⁧⁧Tilt Mar 11, 2021 @ 11:32pm 
Help me with Metro For Steam, library does not work
BloodyTiger Mar 9, 2021 @ 1:36pm 
So the project keeps alive at least, although we have the same version for a long time :) thank you!
RedSigma Mar 9, 2021 @ 8:26am 
@BloodyTiger: kinda looks like that but the unofficial patch team is keeping it alive
BloodyTiger Mar 7, 2021 @ 11:44am 
Does the project was left? 4.4 is the current version since too much time :(
