• Steam Client Styles
    44 replies, posted
So for those of you who don't know, there is a file in Program Files (x86)\Steam\resource\styles that you can edit to change the way your steam client looks. Back in the old steam client there were a few 'skins' that you could apply to change the looks of the client, But at the moment the new steam client has only one. here is my shit example, gotta love the periwinkle progress bar. [img]https://dl.dropbox.com/u/25867270/whuuuust.png[/img] I guess the purpose of this thread would be to post your steam styles, or ones you have come across that look cool. Since the file is about 4000 lines long it may be easier to post it in a download or a link, or just posting the color values.
oh god that looks horrible

At first glance I thought OP's picture was a result of him having corrupted the skin files

Just got PixelVision, I really love it
[QUOTE=CakeMaster7;36463263]Just got PixelVision, I really love it[/QUOTE] I recommend PixelVision as well. Beautiful <3
[QUOTE=brandonsh;36462134]What are you talking about, the current client has plenty of skins and they don't look like... whatever that is.[/QUOTE] There is only one skin included by default, in the settings.

[url]http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1421090[/url] This theme is pretty decent. Hasn't been updated for a while though.
I've been using [url=http://ns2.onteh.net.au/tddskin/]TDD's Enhanced Steam[/url]. Not actually updated by TDD anymore, which is why the URL isn't to the Steam forums. There's also a [url=http://boneyardbrew.deviantart.com/art/Windows-8-Steam-Skin-1-2-292419787?]Windows 8[/url] theme I found on DA.
i wish steam had a native theme that fit with the os you used it on i mean i guess you could keep the current ui for game overlays but it would be wonderful if steam didn't look out of place with other programs, i'm talking aero support and the likes which makes me wonder, will valve do anything for windows 8's metro start menu? would look like the perfect place for a steam widget
[QUOTE=brandonsh;36462134]What are you talking about, the current client has plenty of skins and they don't look like... whatever that is.[/QUOTE] Yeah but every steam update breaks them.

This thread has made me realize how good Steam can look.
I've got a question does steam skins affect steam performance ?
