Well, first of all, I must say that this is not mine, but OP's work. I am merely improving upon it, as much as I can.@1x is for non-Retina, @2x is for Retina. I have separate PSD files for each size of my Aqua window controls, started out with the Retina versions and adjusted them to look good on non-Retina as well.
Good luck with your compete theme. If it's non-Retina only, I'd still be willing to try it out on my Mac Pro 5,1. Will there be a version for Mojave, or Sierra / High Sierra only?
The current theme file structure was introduced in Yosemite. Mavericks and earlier used ArtFile.bin, ArtFile200.bin, and SArtFile.bin stored in /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/CoreUI.framework/Versions/A/Resources/. A different tool exists to extract from and recompile those, and they are not compatible with anything Apple introduced in Yosemite or later.And I barely figured it out how this even work few days ago. Apple is changing this from version to version. For an example, I am running the 10.9.5 on the separate partition, so I wanted to copy some resources, and I do not even know where those are located, because it doesn't even have SystemAppearance.car file. Why, Apple, just...why!?
In some cases the SystemAppearance files are backwards-compatible (the High Sierra ones work in Sierra and El Capitan), but usually not forwards-compatible without some problems showing up as a result.Tell me, regarding the Mojave, does what works in High Sierra simply works in Mojave, too? Or has Apple screwed something up again? I am asking, because I see that you are familiar with it.
And I do not care about dark theme, it is obvious that dark theme must have a theme specially made for it. Would this same theme work with Mojave's normal theme, for example?
If not, I will probably abandon this. There would be no point in putting so much time and resources into something that will become broken in month or two when I upgrade to Mojave.
Hi, the resources aren't available because I have a bad habit of taking them off the internet if I feel like there's nothing more to be done in the field of macOS theming. I am currently working my way around some of the restrictions of that but that's the reason. Given Apple's rapid, for me as a "themer/ricer", release-cycle for major updates it's kinda and up-hill battle with new so-called '.car' files to take into account. I do believe I have the files here offline on my computer, I don't delete much off of that.Hi all,
I am absolutely new on this forum.
My question is why resources are no longer available.
I am very impressed about the presented mod's, so I like to use them.
Many thanks in advance for answering my question.
Could you please put the old versions up for download again anyway, at least temporarily?Hi, the resources aren't available because I have a bad habit of taking them off the internet if I feel like there's nothing more to be done in the field of macOS theming.

Hi, I've re-uploaded the two variants to my Jumpshare account. Check the first page here in the thread - the links are below each image where I once removed the download link. Thank you for commentingCould you please put the old versions up for download again anyway, at least temporarily?
I'm stuck on High Sierra anyway due to nVidia Web Drivers not being updated. (And even if that were to change, I'd consider a nice Leopard-esque theme reason enough to stay put.)
If you wanted to take a look at the theme and you're on High Sierra still then I have just now updated the first page of this thread with new download links to the two variants.Many thanks for your explanation, Allan.
I would love to being able to use your resources on my system (10.13.6), but fully understand your position.
I must admit that I haven't changed those at all. I have on later projects however. I will see about changing those. I have some other projects going on right now and today is also sundayMaybe I did something wrong, but gradually I realize that the small traffic lights have not changed.
Can you advise me on how these traffic lights can also be adjusted or am I asking you too much now?
Your link doesn't go anywhere -As a first, I tried to change the small (and mini) traffic lights for both SystemAppearance.car and GraphiteAppearance.car for High Sierra.
Because it is my first attempt, I'm not sure if they are okay and whether you can download them.
Please let me know.

These look fine. The small images in the graphiteappearance coloured one is different from mine but that's on me.
I meant it not as an attack mind you. I was saying that I missed the boat on the more correct color palette of the graphite appearance that you have included which I think is a great contribution to the community, so thank you.Oh well ... I finally managed to contribute to this beautiful community ... however modest.
