PixelVision

2014.06.29: updated to v2014-0629 (see SPUF thread for details).

2014.09.04: v2014-0904 Update for the ongoing Steam Client Beta available - Download.

PixelVision is my first attempt at skinning for Steam, so don't expect anything overly fancy! What I've tried to accomplish here is to improve upon certain aspects of the original Steam 2010 UI that I felt needed some work.

I didn't want to end up changing things around where it wasn't needed, so I've tried to retain the overall feel of the original Steam. Hopefully I was successful, I'll let you decide.

Notes & Disclaimers:

  • This skin is meant for Windows, and is as-of-yet untested on Mac (it's being worked on).
  • Please make sure to read the readme files, if you follow the steps nothing should go wrong.
  • This skin is setup by default for Steam in English, if you're using a different language, use the language fix (readme).
  • If you're having trouble, check the Troubleshooting part of the readme, it covers most of the common eventualities.

    @psixoy - Follow this link for instructions on sorting out the icons.

    As for removing the big picture button, an easy way is to simply delete the series of image files starting with icon_button_fullscreen in ..\Steam\skins\PixelVision\Graphics\. There should be 4 in total. Changes will take effect upon restarting Steam.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi! I really liked your theme for Steam, but it has problems with support for Russian language - it does not look correct. I would really like you to fix this error :C And how to remove the button "Big piсture"? Removing a tick in the settings did not help. P.S. Forgive me for the bad English.

    Good job! The colors look very vibrant and everything stands out just enough so that they don't mess with your eyes.

    This is by far my favourite skin for steam. It condenses the areas that don't need to be overly large (making it nice and viewable in both maximized and small-windowed sizes) and itadds a much needed darkness to the boring grey of Steam's original UI.

    The only thing I would like to add is a darker version, making all the greys moderately darker, especially the ones toward the top of the library/friends list. The minimalism and layout of the hud is absolutely perfect though good job.
