This champ must be very old or there's something wrong. Every theme I try gives me a Windows 2000 (white) look.

Thanks for the info. I guess there was a misstake in the paths of the *.theme files. I corrected them: dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/82…

Please tell me if it works now...

Sorry to diaspoint you but I don't have the time to port it to Win8. Anyhow winplayboy did a great job porting it to Win7 (winplayboy.deviantart.com/art/…. Maybe he'll do it for Win8, too?

you can use a ResHacker to change the resource but that way you cant change everything.

for this theme I used StyleXP.

Many thanks for this theme, it is awesome!

And one question: is it possible to easily change bold font in GroupBox title to normal? I have some applications that seems to have fixed width for this place and some titles get cut in the middle of the letter or line break is inserted and only 1 or 2 pixels from the second line are visible under first line.
Example: [link]

Would it be alright if I requested that ~Satukoro , a well known theme porter, ports this theme to Windows 7? Unless you were to port it, but I doubt that. But I need your permission before I ask him to port.

shure he has my permission to port it! would be great! I'm a bit short on time to do stuff at the moment...

I plan on doing Shiki-Colors for Win7, but I don't know how soon I'll get to it..
I haven't found anything similar yet. But if somebody has, let us know! ;)
