Minimal Steam UI 2010 by Ph0Xy Minimal Steam UI 2010 by Ph0Xy
EDIT:

Hey guys, Steam keeps coming up with updates that keep breaking my skin, and I really can't keep up, so I'm dropping support for this skin.

I updated with a modified version by Santo "Roughael" Pfingsten which apparently fixed a lot of recent issues.

Also, there's this really great alternative minimal skin by sequestrum that you should check out: [link]




DOWNLOAD BUTTON IN RIGHT PANEL ==========>

Minimal steam skin made by me.
Feel free to comment and give suggestions.

Skin is based on TDD skin: [link]

Please visit the skins thread for more information: [link]

Updated to v0.4.2 to fix some visual bug caused by new update

Sadly, no. I haven't had time to keep this up to date, but I can recommend you two other skins that are:

Both have similar simple and minimal looks.

I'd love to know how you've managed to reduce the minimal width of the steam window.

I didn't? That's one thing I couldn't do. It seems smaller but if you compare it should be the same? Which window specifically are you talking about.

The main steam window.
The default skin will take up more than 2/3th of my screen when aero snap'd, while this skin takes up 1/2 of my screen.
's brilliant.

I guess you are talking about my continuation of the minimal skin ( [link] ).
This is how it's done (in steam.styles)

"CSteamrootDialog" {
minimum-height=300
minimum-width=550
}

Hey Man can you please restart working on this or can you teach me /give me a link on how to create skins? Because I want to fix the friend list issues and I really love this skin!

Try checking out this skin
[link]

It's also very minimal, and it's based on mine. Slightly more simple though, but the guy has been keeping it up a lot more.
There's not really any site that teach you these things, you just gotta go mess around in the files and learn by yourself really.

Just remove FriendsDialog.res from Steam\skins\Minimal Steam UI V2\Friends\ folder and the friend list will work again

I'm currently using this and it's great, only problem I've got with it is the text is way too big. I like my fonts small.

Make sure under Settings > Interface, that the DirectWrite is NOT selected. It screws with your fonts.

I'm really sorry guys, but Steam keeps coming with new updates that breaks everything every other week, and I really can't keep up with school and stuff. This is why I'm probably dropping support for this skin.

This guy called sequestrum though has a great skin that was made with the same goal in mind, being minimal.
You can get it here: [link]
We used to help each other a lot back then.
He has a far more efficient way of keeping up with updates and is definitely better at this than me now.

I've updated the skin, there might still be issues, but the big ones should be gone.

Thanks for the original Ph0Xy, love it :)

Nice one :)

I also had the skin edited to remove that ugly gradient blue border on every window. Looks much better without that border.

The menu will take a little longer, way too busy, but I removed the blue border and added it here:

true, will change it on the next version.
I'll also try to make the menus look a little better, currently they don't compare to the quality of the skin.
Might take a while tho, as I'm currently busy with other stuff.

Looks great. Theres some odd overlapping as others have stated in the library/games sections when viewing games as a list. Theres also overlapping occurring on the top left "steam" menu from the main window.

great work.

Hi again.

I've noticed some funny overlapping in the menu bar since the latest client update.

Is this a problem Steams end that might be sorted come the next update? Or possibly something that you could look at?

Thanks again, still the best Steam skin out there by a million miles!

That's your steam wallet, isn't it?
Yeah, I'll need to update to place that somewhere.
Where would you like to have it?
Reply
:iconorderoftheflame:
orderoftheflame Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2010
I've just noticed that the default Steam skin doesn't display it anywhere, presumably because it's not really required?

Is it possible to just hide it?
Reply
:iconph0xy:
Ph0Xy Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2010  Hobbyist Photographer
Hmm, I'm pretty sure it shows it somewhere.
Thing is, when they add a new element, since that element is not even named on my skin, it'll go by default to the top-left (position 0,0).
So yea I have to set it somewhere. Maybe you don't use Wallet but I'm sure some person will need it.
Anyways, thanks for reporting in, I'll try to get it done this weekend along with 3-4 other bug fixes I've been working on.

I'm not sure what it is, but if it's the Steam wallet, over by the profile would seem appropriate. :)

Not sure if you've had a look, but the new beta (recommendations) causes some extra overlap as well. Might be worth you doing two birds with one stone. :)

Sorry, no idea what happened to the above post.
What I meant was if there was any way to minimalize the load on the CPU/GPU...? Or is this UI already optimized to use very little system resources?

@ above post: how drunk was I...? XD

The GUI is only visually minimal. I have no access whatsoever to the program code itself, so I can't modify the performance.
