Chameleon for 8-v2 by gsw953onDA Chameleon for 8-v2 by gsw953onDA
UPDATED-Dec.242013

I have updated this theme to be run with OldNewExplorer www.msfn.org/board/topic/17037…
This allow the theme to change the white Control Panel images
and it can also be used to disable the ribbon,plus a few more cool tweaks
you can red more about it here-www.askvg.com/freeware-to-brin…

There is now 2 themes in the download
1 for use with 8.1
and another one that is for 8.1 with StartIsBack or for 8 with or without StartIsBack

-----------------------------------------------------

The Chameleon series for Win7 has been very popular here
with over 40,000 downloads!

The theme it's self is a modded version of my UC8,it is mostly
the COLOR CHANGING option that is new,that and it can be fully
transparent!

Your system must be patched to allow the use of 3rd party themes
I use this patcher-www.syssel.net/hoefs/software_…

To install copy the c8 folder and the c8.theme file for the theme folder in
the download to C:WindowsResourcesThemes
Now right click on your desktop and from the context menu choose Personalize
and choose Chameleon for 8.

It will load as a black theme.
Now to add main color
Run Black Glass Enhanced.curiouso9.deviantart.com/art/B…
Normally on Win 7 this is used for transparency but in this case I'm first using it to get
the Explorer backgrond to change
For this app to begin working all Explorer windows
need to be closed and reopened so close the Personalize window and reopen it.

Now go to the Color tab,once in there choose any color you want and fine tune it
using the "color mixer"
For even more colors and better control try AeroTuner-winaero.com/comment.php?commen…

If you want to have the full transparent effect with blur you will also need to run Aero Glass-www.msfn.org/board/topic/16178…
It is only in beta but is being improved almost daily!


oh and I was unable to get the Ribbon 100% themed at this time
So you will might want to run Ribbon Disabler hb860.deviantart.com/art/Ribbo…

Other credits and links
The wallpaper-www.zastavki.com/eng/3D-graphi…
The font is Neogrey-www.dafont.com/neogrey.font
As usual my icons are Token brsev.deviantart.com/art/Token…

AS NO ONE REPORTED ANY MAJOR ISSUES I HAVE UPDATED IT
FROM BETA TO VERSION 1,CUSTOM SYSTEM FILES HAVE BEEN ADDED

I use this method to change the font www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/… scroll down until you find option 3.
The easiest way to change icons is with a 7tsp pack for Windows 8\8.1 like this one ultimatedesktops.deviantart.co…
