    Gray8 beta

    Here is my first Windows 8 theme








    A little bit about the theme
    I calling it beta because it is my first Windows 8 theme and I wasn't able to do my normal extra's this time.
    Except for a clock-which is for 64 bit system's only.
    Your system needs to be patched for 3rd party themes first
    I'm using this patcher Windows 8 Ultra UXTheme Patcher - WinMatrix
    There is other patchers available but they are known to cause issues when some other customizing softwares are also being used.


    The theme it's self uses a modified version of Mr.Grim's Equinox msstyle,so if you have the extra's for that
    theme installed things like the Control Panel images will change automatically when you switch to this theme.


    There is no installer for this theme so you will have to copy the g8 beta folder and g8 beta.theme file to
    your Windows Resources\Themes folder.
    To change the clock navigate to Windows\System32 and find your timedate.cpl.Take full conrtol of this file and rename.
    Then copy the new custom one I provided over.You will either have to restart Explorer or sign out before the clock will change.


    Hope you guys like it!Enjoy!





    The Start Menu is StartIsBack,the one from Stardock isn't 100% themeable

    The icons used in the screenshots are Token by ~brsev on deviantART
    And were applied using a combination of IconPackager and manually changing them.
    The wallpaper is from here Windows 8 Wallpapers
    The Rainmeter skins in the preview are My Stock Meters and Peeled by me

    First of all gsw953 you have created an awesome Windows 8 theme.

    Updated:

    I have also installed all of MrGrim's modded system files from Equinox Beta1 and I had already purchased Start8 instead of StartIsBack but after testing Start8 myself & MrGrim explaining to me why Start8 doesn't work properly my inner "tightwad" shelled out another 3 bucks for StartIsBack and also I missed Patching the System Properties Logo the first time around but now I have everything working correctly (Crosses Fingers).

    I have also installed all of MrGrim's modded system files from Equinox Beta1 and I had already purchased Start8 instead of StartIsBack but if I use the "Windows 7 Solid Theme" from Start8 I get a totally transparent Start Menu except for the All Programs menu and the Menus on the right side are truncated.

    Sorry to say this but Start8 is no good for use with themes, they have modified the way the start menu is rendered, early builds were more promising as it looked like the standard start menu but they were pressured into making it squared to fit with Windows 8 so this has made custom themes a no go in the traditional manner, I have seen some fairly good results but not using the default start menu images.

    Please do not PM me to ask for support - please use the relevant thread or forum.

    No problem MrGrim I will just have to bite the bullet & buy StartIsBack and scrap Start8, It's not much different than getting "Hoodwinked" purchasing Apps from the M$ Store.

    I also noticed after my earlier post when switching to your Equinox theme and using all but one of the start8 themes that the whole start menu turns completely white with no text when attempting to hover over it.
