This is Pachenko a big update from my last theme Tavaris, many images have been redone this theme now have glass windows frame (if u don't like glass frame use "Tavaris").

To make a Dark theme work right I have to edit a lot of DLL files and I'm sharing those files too, is up to you if like to use those files or not.

You have 3 shell32 files to choose:
4- if you like to use Buff icons you will have to use the "imageres.dll" file too.

[How to install]

1.User Account Control must be turned off.
2.make a restore point before any modification.
3. Install Universal Theme Patcher [link] and restart pc.
4.Install Theme Resource Changer....[link]
5. Copy everything in themes folder into C:\Windows\Resources\Themes.
6.Add take ownership to menu...[link]
7. Install fonts.
8.Replace all the "DLL FILES" you like to use ( you will find instructions inside each folder).

Be careful if you have a 64bit system: 64bit FILES GO INSIDE "SYSTEM 32" FOLDER AND 32bit FILES GO INSIDE "SysWOW64" FOLDER.

Before make any modification an complain to me, Google how a 64bit system works and you will understand, I am not responsible if ur system crash that's why you need to make a restore point as I said before.

BUGS: Some app like browsers(Firefox, Internet Explorer) use windows background color so you will get black text on black background, i know is not functional every dark theme have this bug i cant't do nothing to fix it ..... My advice! use Google Chrome to avoid this bug .

-Wucltux.dll: This file remove the gradient from "Windows Update" and add new buttons on the left pane,
this will make Windows Update work with any theme dark or light.

-Systemcpl.dll ,WinSATAPI.dll and PerfCenterCPL.dll: these files control the setting for:All Control Panel Items and Performance Information and Tools.
Remove some unwanted info like: "What do this numbers mean", "Tips for improving your computer's perfomance" and all the links from "Perfomance Center", and set the background under "base score" same as control panel making this work with dark or light themes.

-imageres: windows icons.

-shell32: icons and some new explorer proprieties like: no thumbnails at Details pane.

-gameux: new background for game rating.

-timedate: new clock.

-explorerframe: back and forward buttons.
