I am now accepting art to be submitted for a total overhaul of this project that will hopefully be released by the end of the year. I'm looking for artists of all kinds, to make good quality art for this project. If you can make 3D art, digital art, or even just photoshop something of good quality, PM me an example of some of your work. Once accepted, you will be able to work on wallpapers and/or various other parts of the theme. Eventually, if we make an android version, you will be the first to be asked to help out. You may even get a portion of the profits.
If you're a fan of Minecraft, chances are you live, breathe, and think Minecraft. If this is true, what would make your life any better than a Minecraft Theme for your Windows computer? Welp, your wishes have just come true.
Theme Screen Shot
This is what's included in the Basic Pack
Minecraft Recycle Bin Empty Icon (Bucket)
Minecraft Recycle Bin Full Icon (Water Buket)
1. Click the link in the downloads section. You can save it were ever you want.
2. Double click the link you just downloaded
3. Go to the file explorer, then type "Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Personalization" (Without quotes) and press enter
4. Click on the theme "Minecraft Theme"
You can have fun customizing the settings on your own. Let me know if you have preferred settings, and I'll post them. Just post your settings, and your settings name, along with any downloads you may want to add.
The cursors automatically reset to the default cursors when you reboot. To fix this, run 7zip as Administrator and open your "Minecraft Theme.themepack" file and extract all the .cur and .ani files to C:\Windows\Cursors, Right-click your Desktop and click Personalize. On the left side of the screen, there is a link that says "Change mouse pointers" and double-click the following cursors and set them to the correct cursors:Normal Select - C:\Windows\Cursors\sword.curHelp Select - C:\Windows\Cursors\02 help select.aniWorking In Background - C:\Windows\Cursors\03 working in background.aniBusy - C:\Windows\Cursors\04 busy.aniText Select - C:\Windows\Cursors\06 text select.aniLink Select - C:\Windows\Cursors\15 link select.aniThen under the Scheme section, click Save As... and name it Minecraft, then click OK in both dialogs.That should work. Thanks to Nathanprocks for figuring this out!
How you can help
The biggest way you can help out, is by donating. It probably wont help the project directly, but it sure does help me! It may how ever get me one step closer to getting my own computer so that I can continue development. Please keep donations fairly small.
Cant wait till download! And how did you make the theme? Like setting all of them together and make them work and such? Do you have a tutorial i could follow? :biggrin.gif:
I just went into the file explorer, and in the top bar, typed 'Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Personalization' and then you can customize things on the left, and then save your theme. BTW, I'm uploading it in just a few minutes.
I too am looking for how to get this for an XP machine... this seems to be only a 7 thing... the file isn't even associated with anything to be able to open it. Any help?
I was able to just do it manually. I searched for where each filetype is typically stored, then went into appearance setup under display in control panel, then pointers under mouse settings... all is working... pretty neat actually. Very cool. Thanks.
