(Like the Scirra Site theme I made for the first bundle, this is based on the GameJolt site colors. Also like the Scirra Site theme, no one asked me to create it or anything, I just kind of like the colors. This is probably overkill as a disclaimer, but better safe than sorry.)

Hey @FlatOffice, (...not sure how to @ a name with a space in it)
Thanks for letting me know. :)
I just updated the links, so they should work now.

The theme bundle link is broken.
Burry me with my empty hands sticking out the ground, so that all can see, that the one who had the world on his hands, died with them empty.

Thanks for letting me know @7Winter, :)
I fixed the links.

This is the updated bundle.
Themes Bundle - Fisholith Themes v2.zip
It also includes some notes on choosing and setting C2 "Styles", which are different from "Themes".


Example of choosing a Style

Styles - what are they?
Styles vs Themes
"Styles" are different from "Themes".
Themes mainly set colors for event sheets. (You can edit them with my Theme Editor, or in C2's properties.)
Styles set the colors for the overall user interface, like scrollbars, and panels. (Style colors aren't editable.)

Choosing a Style
1. On the ribbon, choose the "View" tab.
2. Click the "Style" button (with the brush icon), and from the drop menu, choose a style.
(Note: The default style is found under "Office styles" > "Office 2010 Silver".)

The 3 notable Styles
  • Office 2010 Silver - This is the default theme for C2.
  • Visual studio 2012 Dark - Good for dark themes.
  • Carbon - Not as dark as 2012 Dark, but it's the only other Style with a dark background.
Tip: If you use a dark Theme, then also change the Style to "Visual studio 2012 Dark",
so you don't have bright white panels right beside the dark event sheet.

Style Limitations
C2 comes with some pre-built Styles to choose from, but you can't edit their colors.
This is because Styles are developed by Microsoft, and embedded across a mixture of DLLs and system files.


The 3 important styles
Dark Styles are important because they can be paired with dark Themes.
