Gnomnit Dark for Windows 8 by neiio Gnomnit Dark for Windows 8 by neiio
My first dark themed VS for Windows 8! :)

This project is open source, so feel free to hack/mod/share to your hearts content.
Just as a courtesy please link back to the original work.


First of all we need to patch Windows 8 to use themes, here's the tool I used
You can use whatever works for you.

Install the included fonts. (3 font choices, Segoe UI, Calibri & ubuntu)

Now once your PC is capable, place the theme files into Windows/Resources/Themes

Then go to your desktop and apply it as you would any other theme. It will be located under "Installed Themes".

for more details...

Hey neiio,
is there any way you could update this one for 8.1? 
Or maybe at least fix the very minor but still annoying black background on title bar text? I found your "blank_caption_text"-file but I'd really rather have the actual text.
Thanks much in advance!

Sorry, another question arose:
I can't for the heck of me find out how to hide the icons in the navigation panel and in the titlebar, just like how in your screenshot. All i find is a multitude of registry edits which hide the respective entry/folder from the navigation panel altogether, all i want to hide are the icons though.
Again, thanks in advance

Beautiful theme!
Does it work with Windows 8.1 Update (1)?

Thanks! :)

Ah well...

This look great! The only problem I have is that it changes the colors for my suite of Office applications as well and now all my backgrounds are dark and I can't read anything.

Is there a fix for this?
