Dulcis Somnium 'Sweet Dreams' by IanWoods Dulcis Somnium 'Sweet Dreams' by IanWoods
Important ! : Due to the reduction of the large view's picture quality (so you don't wait an hour for it to load)
The start panels don't look as good as they do for real , they are actually a lot better integrated and smoother.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Install the Font first its called MufferRaw (I kid u not lol)
For the tool bar buttons you will need Styler you can get it here ---> [link]

Thanks to ~kidrocky7 [link]
For allowing me to mod his shellstyle and styler.

Also thanks to Laurent Baumann for the resources I used for the icons. ---> Mac version [link]
and finally Thanks to *foo182 [link] for helping me give this 1 a name :)

Enjoy

Precapice

------------------------------------------------------------------------UPDATE----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1: To the 51 people who downloaded this first I updated the file because I forgot to include the font sorry for the inconvenience , I had a brain fart.

2: I added 2 more styles , basically just a new background and highlight for "All Programs" on the start menu for better visibility.

3. Slight tweak to the font colors for better visibility

Wait a minute are you using another vs with my shell ? if so thats your problem cause if the color for the folders background does not match the exact color of the pictures I used for my music excetra it won't show.
Test it by applying sweet dreams if it shows you have your answer .

No winzip should be fine, I don't know what to tell you as you can see above people have downloaded it and it's fine, something must be up on your side , maybe you got corrupt file try new download.

Hi. This theme is great!
But I dont know how to use it :saddrunk:
Could you give me some advice please? :)

IanWoods Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2006  Hobbyist Interface Designer
I have updated the file , also I presume all went well with the patch and did you also install the styler tool bar ?

IanWoods Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2006  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Riffmaker you have to patched your windows theme engine with something called uxthemepatcher.dll to use this or any .theme you download on the web.
This is the best patch ----> [link]
You will have to sign in (any name will do) at the top tab is the downloads (only 2 entries)
The bottom 1 is the uxthemepatch you wan't

It is a run once program only , don't worry about windows warning that will pop up it's just Bill Gates who does not wan't you to use any theme that does not have WINDOWS XP in big shiny bright letters :) reboot .

Now extract the theme (VS) to C:\WINDOWS\Resources\Themes
now click on the dreams.theme file , a window will appear (display properties)
Sellect appearance tabs and then in the dropdown box choose on of the sub styles.

Once you have finnished these steps let me know how it went and we will move on to the explorer buttons.
