Does it work with 1903?

The download button seems to be broken. I see two download buttons on this page, a normal download and a purchase button. I thought the purchase was optional, but the normal download button redirects me to a "oops, this page was not found" 404 page. Is this theme purchase-only?
PXJesse's avatar
It already seems to be fixed, I got it downloaded and installed and it looks awesome! Thank you so much for this beautiful theme.

Hey! I've been using your theme on my laptop and desktop for a while, but for some reason on my desktop I can't get my right click options font to change (explorer fonts change just fine). But when I disable the theme I can get custom fonts working everywhere. Is there something I can do to get the fonts to change when the theme is applied? Anyway love your work by far the best looking win10 theme out there!

Fixed- had to re download the file

your stuff is still inclear and not easy to install!

in one of the files/folders, "QA Icons" theres a notepad file called "how to install"
"pastebin.com/CL7HyL3V

Go to line 124
Create a system restore point
Follow instructions"

there is NOTHING at that pastebin!!! it just redirects to your website!
So where the hell is line 124??????
how am i meant to continue the installation guide if i cannot follow it?

This is by far one of the most unintuitive install guides iv ever seen in my life.

You really need to make a step by step, in order install guide. this is just all jumbled everywhere, its imposbille to follow, half the stay you have writtin there, just isnt there at all
chloechantelle's avatar
Glad you fixed your issue friend, the instructions are fine as everyone who can read correctly has been able to follow them.
I don't know how more obvious I can be than writing requires and how to use in bold.

My zip file had both of those. Was able to install it just fine. Just installed 3 days ago.

So from what I can gather, I'm pretty much screwed using any 3rd party themes if I regularly use MS Office, right? I've tried several from various developers, and every time there are always unwanted changes to my documents when I open the file. Just making sure before I give up and go back to the sucky default windows themes. 
chloechantelle's avatar
There won't be changes to your documents, simply that the theme will try to theme your MS Office apps and won't do it correctly.
If you use MS Office frequently use a light theme, or switch the theme off when you work.

Hello chlochantelle,
 just installed and everything looks amazing except that i cant get my drive icons to look as sleek as you but thank you I really appreciate you providing this work.
My only comment is that for icons of stuff that is open like for example if chrome is open yet im somewhere else in default theme there would be a color at the bottom of the taskbar indicating this but for me this is gone, any idea if this is fixable?
Thanks again <3

Thanks!
Can you send a screenshot? Not sure what your referring to.

Hello chloechantelle,
I wanted to thank you for your hard work. I deeply appreciate the quality, purity, simplicity and colors harmony of your theme. I was designing a new Windows10 desktop and it took me days of research before finding the perfect theme that would fit > Nocturnal.
I just discovered your DA, but I will keep following your creation for the future.
Thank you very much ~

P.S. To all Win10 1809 users, I confirm that this theme work like a charm. Just make sure to use the last version of UltraUXThemePatcher.

Hello,

Is this going to be updated to 1809? Any way it can utilize the dark mode made available for ver 1809?

Thanks
