Night Lion for Windows 8 / 8.1

Night Lion theme for Windows 8 and 8.1!! 
(Download  SkinPack Auto UXThemePatcher 3.0  first and patch your system before applying the theme)

UPDATE! 3/05/13
:: only compatible with 100% DPI resolution :D (those 1920x1080 resolution default is 125%)
:: theme now compatible with Windows 8.1
:: minor modifications with windows frame
:: Mac cursors added
:: Title bar fixed and jumplists fixed 
    if Title bar too large >> Right Click desktop > Personalization > Display > Title bar font size (8)
:: to enjoy Windows 7 library groupings, disable Ribbon etc >> OldNewExplorer.rar

NOTE: that the taskbar below, is a real taskbar.. :) 
            (no third party apps, shadows or anything, just plain tasbar)

To fully enjoy the theme..
:: you need to center the taskbar
:: hide systemtray icons (clock disabled - optional)
:: disable the statusbar (Folder & search options)
:: start menu not yet customized (coming soon)

Hope you enjoy this theme..
If you do, just leave a comment here, would gladly appreciate it :)

God bless

I'm having the same issue on win8.1 where the minimize/maximise/close buttons aren't changing even though I have run the patcher and restarted first. Can anyone help? 

There's a different editions of w8.1 pro uxtheme.dll, in 9200 it requires not the same actions to update as in 9500 and 9600 builds,

So here it is

the problem is your resolution.. change your DPI to 100% go to Right click desktop > Make text and other items bigger/smaller > Let me choose tickbox > 100% ..

but still this is temporary because i will need to update the theme for it io work on 1920 displays to make text bigger :))
