Can anyone make me a 125% DPI metro version of the XP Luna skin?

Do you mean like this one? It picks up on Metro colors. I'm not sure exactly what you want. Do you want a flat "modern" XP menu? Because to make the XP menu "modern"—without any depth and devoid of inspiration— you're left with the "metro" menu, which you already have :P. Sorry, I hate the "modern" look myself (and think that modern is terrible name for that look.…)

That's not modern, that's glass-coloured .-.

No it doesn't, it picks up on glass colour .-.

I guess you would know, but it seems to me they're the same thing. :?

You are both right in some ways.
On Win 10, using my eyes, full 255/255 glass color is same as Metro Dark1 accent color.
I found that out using ClASETRO skin.
One main difference is when the red mask is designated as a Metro accent color,
the CSM "Overide glass color" option only works on the small leakage glass color.
Without Metro color designation, glass overide has full control.
If color picker option is in skin, it's more of a blend.

Metro is definitely flat without texture. That's the way it's going.
Too hard to make textured menus for such wide ranges of screen sizes. 8k will be coming soon.
If a round corner Metro skin is required, some people made already.

The Metro skin looks nothing like the XP start menu! Make me an XP Luna Modern.skin please!

Not sure if anybody knows what you mean. Do you have a sketch, or screenshot of something?

If it's those modern square tiles on the menu, I don't think it can be done at this time.

You could download a different start menu from someone else:

You can change some of the menu colors from its settings, Make some Luna colors, like I did in picture.

Guys...I think he means more like this:

But it's not Metro colors.
I was going to recommend Metro Color Tool skin7.
The logic has changed with new versions of CSM.
Now the black text does not show up anymore.

Woe is me. :(

Seems like a transparency problem. Can you attach your skin file here?

It might be because Windows 10 redefined the "Application text" metro colors,
when they made light and dark themes. Just tried older version of CSM. Same.
It's Windows updates that messed it up. :|

I'll change to just #000000 later.

Remember, in my first post, I said that I needed the skin for my 125% DPI display.

Basic Split Win10.skin


Flat, like Metro Color Tool .skin7, but is classic opaque two column skin.
Similar to XP, without the bits below. No time for that.

That is a beautiful Start Menu skin, juniper 7. :) Goes well with Windows 10's flat icons. Would look even better with the "Invert Metro icon color" option of Classic Start Menu turned on so the boxy tiled look is gone for UWP apps.

The look is cool, but how about the start button? The taskbar is easy to do, but the start button would be harder.

I don't even know if a metro color can be applied to a start button,
that is a complementary color, or appealing rgb opposite?

The only metro color that I know of is $LightSearchHitHighlight
I had it not as a start button, but as the 2 pixel line above the text like in XP menu.
Problem was it was red with blue accent color, and orange with purple accent,
blue with green accent color. Did not look correct, got removed.

As for a different start button, I'm sure someone can mod one.

Note:
The Win 10 accent color swatches do not cover all available colors that can be shown.
Automatic accent color has more variables. Maybe a new Windows update will have more available swatch color boxes to choose from, in future?

Other: Try the glass color option, for more intense menu color.

8-) Mmmm....Hot pink:
Overide glass color option in "Menu Look"tab
Menu glass color= C132FF


or XP blue menu top:
Menu glass color= D96C00
