Gray8 Color Pac by gsw953onDA Gray8 Color Pac by gsw953onDA
UPDATED- Jan.12 2014

I have updated these themes to support OldNewExplorer by Tihiy www.msfn.org/board/topic/17037…
You can read more about at the link or visit AskVG- www.askvg.com/freeware-to-brin…
Basically this program can disable the ribbon,put the details pane back on the bottom,plus a few other tweaks.
More importantly it will allow the themes to change the white images in the Contol Panel.
Which could only be done before by changing the shell32.dll.
If you use StartIsBack this theme will work on both Windows 8 and 8.1

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

Here is the new Gray8 4 pack of colors.
The colors were made to go with color choices for accent colors in the Windows 8 settings.


Also included are some custom 64 bit system files
timedate.cpl,wmploc.dll

Special thanks to vigoni for creating the awesome wallpapers for these themes.

Instructions,credits and previews are included but if you have any questions just ask.

MAKE SURE TO MAKE A PROPER SYSTEM BACKUP
first in case anything goes wrong.

What's the purpose of those folders that have files to replace in wow64 and system32?

They are to change the clock image and Windows Media Player to match theme better.

After installing this theme, there are some sections left white on file explorer and control panel applets. www.dropbox.com/s/9p0yz7nirte4…

Using windows 8.1 x64and uxstyle(UltraUXThemePatcher is broken it seems)

you need to also use Old New Explorer to remove the white parts
see the beginning of the theme description for links and more info

Windows looks fine now, but programs that rely on windows styling are broken. i.imgur.com/dEmwcIi.png

yes that is a common problem when using dark themes,some 3rd party program developers don't always
follow Microsoft's current styling standards.

Hi, I think this is a really nice theme, but I have sobre troubles with the scroll bars: they don't appear unless you hover them, and it doesn't appear at all in my browser. It's pretty annoying sometimes, can't this be changed somehow?

Edit: just noticed in doesn't happen in the blue and red themes, I'd like the yellow one, though :(    (actually i'd love an orange one :P)

Any idea why tabs in the taskbar have a white outline around them?  I recently formatted after using this for like a year, never had any issues and now upon reinstalling it I have that bug. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Of course.

Here's on of my desktop with the white outline around the taskbar on the tabs. Screenshot 1
And here's one with the browser open, the active tab is so bright white I can't see the text on the tab. I'm guessing it will be sorted once the outline is fixed, but thought I should show you anyways.  Screenshot 2

Thanks
I will look into it, am just really busy at work right now so give me a few days.
Also what happens when you set the taskbar to "alway combine,hide labels"?
Is it ok then or do you still have the bug

Hi. First of all thank you for the theme. I love it except for one thing. There is no forward or back button in windows explorer? Its really strange. Is there a way to get it back?

they should only appear when they can be used(when you can go forward or back)

This for sure is one of the most incredible packs I`ve seen so far - and I´ve seen a lot.
I would be very thankful if you could update your Gray8 line to work in Win 8.1 pro - then I could have a beautiful desktop too.... :D (Big Grin)
