Updates

GUIParentSubmitterStats
  • BugFix Fixed new chat frame behaving weirdly in steam overlay
  • Improvement Reformatted the steam.styles file so it isn't such a pain to read

Thanks to Thespikedballofdoom for narrowing it down a bit.

0.6.1 15d
  • Overhaul -Removed A LOT of obsolete .layout files, etc.
  • Tweak -Fixed new account menu colors, top right
  • Improvement -Fixed the "Play album" button in music library to match the old style
  • BugFix -Possibly fixed the announcement button stretching whenever there's news

Remember to remove or rename old versions of this skin, as this one has a lot of the obsolete files removed. I tried to make sure everything worked as intended, however if you find any bugs, please comment.

0.6 Revamp 1mo

Same as the Steam 2013 skin, but edited to be as close as possible to the original.

Exactly the same as http://gamebanana.com/guis/30175, I just tweaked it a little bit.

Some edits by Max http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/765611979741051...

 Changes include:

  • Font-size changed from 16 to 14
  • Friends-list and Chat borders added
  • Gradient background in chat
  • Password entry fixed
  • No underline on account balance
  • And much more.

==================
All credit for the base skin to Beta-Powers.

Feel free to leave suggestions and feedback.

==================
Installation: Extract and place the "steam2013" folder in \Steam\skins , then enable under Steam settings/interface

If you update the skin, please delete the old version completely, instead of just replacing modified files. I may remove/add files occasionally, so this prevents problems regarding to that.

==================

2018 - If you want to revert back to the old chat system, make a shortcut of steam and add "-nochatui -nofriendsui" after "\Steam\Steam.exe" in the shortcut target parameters.

If you want the font-size back to 16, edit Steam2013\resource\styles\steam.styles

Replace the font-size=14 with font-size=16, in everything that begins with friends_chat. There should be 11 lines to edit.

Also, if you want the text entry font-size back to 16 as well, edit Steam2013\friends\ChatRoomDlgFriend.res and ChatRoomDlg.res

Edit the font-size=14 to font-size=16, under the line Textentryfocus_chat.

You can change the toast notification location from Steam2013\resource\styles\steam.styles and Steam2013\resource\styles\gameoverlay.styles by changing the line Notifications.PanelPosition in both. It can only be one of the 4 corners.

There's also an edited steamrootdialog.layout, for removing the big picture- button. Just paste the file from extras to Steam2013\resource\layout.

WARNING!

If you want to change the tray icon back to the old one, you'll have to replace the steam_tray.ico and steam_tray.tga in steam/public with the ones found in steam2013/Extras. Then take steam.cfg and put it in the steam root folder.

These additions might cause some problems though, since the line in steam.cfg is preventing steam from replacing files. So it might break stuff when steam updates itself. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Credit to HunterKiller926 for finding those out, I just applied them to the skin.

  • It was a long journey, but I finally made it.
    The bug is somewhere in the steam.styles file, probably in the lines FrameFocus to HTML, which were the ones I pasted from main steam/resource's steam.styles 

    I don't know if that fucks up anything else.
    Here's the file I made

  • How have you fixed this for new Steam Layout? Because there is another great Steam skin (OFGSRemake) and it's broken.

  • Yo, I'm having a problem with the new steam chat.

    Any ideas?
    Note that this bug isn't as harsh as in the video, since i reinstalled steam it only does this if i put it on the edges of the screen. It's still making the borders on these windows weirdly larger, btw

    Looks like Valve just added the ability to increase the chat font size, so I no longer need to worry about that :)

  • I kind of wonder if it's possible to get rid of the really obnoxious blue gradient borders

    Heya, it's cool to see you continuing to maintain this skin. Is the Chat UI skinnable?

    Do my customized changes to your changes, still work (I haven't updated the skin since they introduced the new Chat UI)? I've included the changes below (font size changes, some text colour changed to white and the HDD activity in the Download UI is drawn with a white line instead of gray):

    Edit StatusLabel, StatusLabel:hover and StatusLabelDim in /resource/styles/steam.styles to change the "1 of 1 blahblah..", "Downloading" and "Downloads paused" font size.  Also change the textcolor to "text".

    Edit font-size=14 with font-size=16 in everything that begins with friends_chat to change the chat font back to size 16. There should be 11~ lines to edit in Steam2013\resource\styles\steam.styles

    Edit font-size=14 to font-size=16 under the line Textentryfocus_chat in Steam2013\friends\ChatRoomDlgFriend.res and ChatRoomDlg.res to change the text entry size back to 16.

    edit font-size under bigtextNonUpper in steam2013/resource/layout/downloadsummarypanel.layout and add padding-top=-3. For the Network and Disk texts, change textcolor "label2" to textcolor "text" under throttleLabel.

    There are numerous issues when configuring the settings for Steam.

    Family
    In-Home Streaming
    In-Home Streaming > Advanced Host Options
    Downloads
    Web Browser

    and possibly other places where the UI is a little bugged.
