This looks really amazing, want to use this theme too. But I have 2 questions:

1) Will this work with my "normal" Windows 8? (Don't really know what RTM ONYL means)
2) Do I need to install both programs mentioned in the instructions under 1), or is the first one enough?

thanks & have a nice day.

Instructions for windows 8.1 customization: www.neowin.net/forum/topic/121…

If you have any questions or suggestions feel free to post them there ^^

And ignore the rtm, that was meant back in the day for people who used windows 8 preview versions(CP etc)

thanks for your reply. 

i'm still using windows 8 pro, win 8.1. :-)

the link you've provided helped me a lot. i think i will go for the uxtheme.

from the screenshot, your theme look really clean, lean and elegant. can't wait to give  it a try.

There are 2 types of bugs both can be fixed,
-startmenu/jumplist bug: use startisback(gives you windows 7 menu though)
-Windows title bug: change colorization color to white or use aero glass 8.

This theme is indeed for windows 8 only, windows 8.1 hasn;t bene officially released so I won't be making themes for it yet ;)

This is just beautiful.

The Windows 8 Design team should learn from you.

sorry I can't
maxxdogg's avatar
btw.. is it possible? maybe I could make this.

It's impossible, you can only hex edit the colors but can't change it like images because they aren't images in a dll or such :/
maxxdogg's avatar
so what is it? what is the basic source of ribbon button and fonts? U know that? :(

Some kind of code conpatable to htm with hex colors only then a bit more complex and encoded making it somewhat impossible to edit:/
