Fixit Posted May 26, 2010 Share Posted May 26, 2010 Hi all,We wanted a simple way to customize our complete Se7en OS, so we created 7tsp.The patcher will back up the original (current) system files, and patch your Windows 7 with a resource pack.Icon/Theme Packs:The Icon Packs are still basic and in development.However, anyone can build and share there own custom packs.containing:(remove anything from a pack u don't want patched, if a file or folder is not present it will simply not be patched)~ A custom Logon screen~ a custom side panel bitmap~ Custom Copy/move/delete Animation colors~ Custom taskmanager line and grid colors~ A .themepack file, or a .theme file and folder~ custom .ani/.cur Cursors or a complete cursor scheme~ Any amount of .Res files~ Install new fonts~ Install new sounds~ install sound schemesany windir/ system32/ syswow64/ file can be added in .res format. e.g. "shell32.dll.res"also these extra resfiles can be added to a pack in the resources folder:~firefox.exe.res~basebrd.dll.res~shellbrd.dll.resThese packs can be installed and used via the options menu in the patcher.

You can select a custom pack in the Options menu.It is also possible to merge your custom pack with the internal Black pack.Restore: Restores the patched files to the backup made at 7tsp's first run.For extra security, the patcher by default creates a Restore Point every time you patch your system.You can disable this in the Options menu.It is also possible to manually create a Restore Point (Program > Create Restore Point).Logon Screen:You can select whether the Logon screen should be patched or not, and you can also select a custom picture (a bmp. jpg. .png can be used from any given location and if needed will be converted and resized automatically).Side Panel:You can select whether the Side Panel should be patched or not, and you can also select a custom picture.(a bmp. jpg. .png can be used from any given location and if needed will be converted and resized automatically).Cursors:You can select whether or not the animated cursor files should be replaced. (add your own cursors to the cursors folder in a pack, open with eg 7z.exe and drag files out and in the opened 7z window)Explorer.exe:You can select whether or not Explorer.exe should be patched.Debug log:Here you can select whether or not a debug log should be created. This is useful for pack creators, to debug resfiles.Clean Icon Cache:When not all icons have changed, you can manually clean the icon and thumbnail cache to refresh these. What happens to your system files:1. If Start Patching is clicked, the Patcher will extract the selected resource pack to the work folder and look for each system file this pack will mod.( it will skip any file that is not in the resources folder in res format) A backup will be made of those files in the case a backup does not yet exist. If Windows updated a file the backup will be updated as well.2. The current file ownerships of a file are stored and then administrator ownerships are taken.3. The file will be patched with the new resources and replaces the original file.4. The file ownerships will be restored. to do:~Add task manager color change support~Add more detailed start button support~Add GUI language support~Add more res file support for other file locations then windir and sysdir when they are needed.Notes:Windows 7 Only!Please install the latest version of reshecker.At the moment only live patching is supported.Icons were modified using: IcoFXBitmaps were modified in: Paint.net and gimpRegards mona 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
