View Full Version : New colors/Skins for steam UI

When are we getting New colors/Skins for steam UI?

I want to chnage it to a brighter color since the Black just turns shiny LCD into mirrors in rooms with a lots of lights like the one I got at work. I have to put up a light blocker to see the UI since I cant change it.

Or using on a laptop in the sun makes it even more hard to see it.

I never had this problem way back with the old army Green skin UI.

Or even invert it to a white on black UI at will with a button click since i would use the all black one now for when I am in the dark it rules in the dark.

I don't know Valve's official standing on this, but I've seen nothing as to more official skins for steam. However, I'm sure that several are a google search away, and you can make a skin yourself. Start steam with the command line parameter "-developer" (without the quotes) and press F6 to open the VGUI editor. There is a page on VGUI editing at the Valve developer wiki: http://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/VGUI_Editing
