Metro Dark
for all of u, who, like myself, love dark themes or r maybe color blind, 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 it[g00d1.info], and if u like it, DOWNLOAD it[github.com] too!

Metro Dark mod is a part of the Unofficial Patch by RedSigma, as an extra. for additional info on the patch and its installation instructions please check the original thread.

as usual, u can personalize it[metroforsteam.com] also. please note that "Dim the art" option isn't functional anymore due to changes in Steam client, so avoid using it; also, u may wanna additionally edit the resulting custom.styles file if u decide to use a different font than Segoe UI, so u can add font variants, like semibold, semilight & light.

the download repository served here is in sync with Unofficial Patch's one, meaning that this mod and all other features, bugfixes and cleanups, previously belonging to this mod, including any future contribution coming from me, r parts of the Unofficial Patch from now on. a detailed CHANGELOG[github.com] is also available.

I'll b addressing feedback about the Metro Dark theme and potential bugfixes/design changes, so if u wanna participate in coding/skinning with me, b free 2 discuss here or join up on Metro Dark github repository[github.com] with ur own patch.

and don't forget to SUBSCRIBE for updates!

metro dark has been updated to version 4.0.1, based on latest metro version as of this writing.

enjoy.

differences to vanilla metro:
  • it is dark, obviously!
  • bugs out: music player
  • colors.styles file again controls most colors
the site doesn't work at all when ever I go to it all it does it redirect me to http://goodone.tk/ and saying DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN.
goodone Sep 2, 2015 @ 3:20pm 
the site works fine asaict. don't ask me why u see errors.
¹²³⁴nick Sep 7, 2015 @ 10:25pm 
should be called metro light since it adds bright white everywhere :orb:
goodone Sep 7, 2015 @ 11:20pm 
what bright white?
¹²³⁴nick Sep 8, 2015 @ 6:45pm 
the #8E8E8E border i mean
goodone Sep 8, 2015 @ 11:03pm 
actually, it's #A0A0A0, gray. i guess, when drawn next to pure black, it looks bright white to some people.

maybe u need to check ur monitor brightness/contrast settings[www.lagom.nl].

anyways, u can always change the colors urself, at least that functionality remains in metro dark, by editing colors.styles file.

Honestly use a better site or something, I can never seem to connect to your site at all.. All I ever get is "Server not found" on multiple browsers and multiple computers...
goodone Sep 17, 2015 @ 8:47am 
and i never had any such problems, so don't ask me what the problem is. it is a rented hosting, and i'm quite sure there's nothing wrong with it. also, my logs show ppl connecting all the time.

maybe u have something in ur setup, like a paranoid or just too lame anti-malware product, that blocks access to less-known webspace. or u use chrome, which is known to have dns issues, among many others, if i may say.

just try again, maybe it will fix itself on its own.

I don't use any anti-malware/anti-virus/internet security products at all so that's not the issue at all, and it happens on all browsers chrome/firefox/ie/microsoft edge and it happens on 2 other computers as well, hell even my friends can't connect to your site and they are in a whole different household with different internet and don't run anti-malware/anti-virus/internet security products either.

If it was just my computer not being able to connect to your site I wouldn't complain but when I've tried it on my computer plus 2 other computers and even my friends can't connect to your site then I have a right to complain about shitty hosting.

maybe i should complain about ur shitty dns. maybe u should change ur isp, or at least use custom dns settings. same goes for the whole neighborhood, i guess. what shitty isp r u using anyway?

unfortunately, there's very little i can do about this problem. also, i have a right not to use 3rd party cloud services just so that ppl using shitty isps can access my mod. i don't have time for added maintenance, sorry.

btw, the hosting i'm using is arvixe. one of the best. and it's from us. strikes me as very odd that someone from the same country has these kind of problems, while ppl from 3rd world countries access, download and use my mod without a single reported problem. even china. go figure.

btw, u don't run any anti-malware product at all? seriously?
