It makes full use of Windows Auto-Color feature so there is a tonne of possibilities or you can color it your self. Play!
First of all we need to patch Windows 8 to use themes, here's the tool I used [link]
You can use whatever 'works' for you.
Now once your PC is capable, place the theme files into Windows/Resources/Themes
Then goto your desktop and apply it as you would any other theme. It will be located under "Installed Themes".
If you wish to get rid of the ribbon use the provided tool. That should be it, any questions just ask.

Really love this dUMBaSS theme. But some objects do not resize properly on my netbook PC. However, just the caption bar, the window frame, the taskbar, and the Auto-Color capability would be perfect for me. A stripped out but perhaps even cleaner and more versatile "dUMBaSS Lite" if you will. Can U do this perhaps? Wish I knew how to edit these things--but I don't. Just a reasonably competent end-user who luvs what you actual artists do. Thanks so much!
how can i build or edit win8 theme ?!
What software is needed ?
I thank you if you help me
Now, I have a problem. I've followed your tutorial, meaning:
1. Use the patcher you linked to, then restart PC.
2. Download theme, extract, place in windows/resources/themes.
3. Went to desktop and applied theme.
This is what I get.What did I do wrong?
What's the font of this theme? I'm a Chinese user, figure it don't have the right font in my OS.
Anyway nice work, i'm using it right now
BTW,Looks like you use my Ribbon Disabler in all of your themes Happy to know that
I plan to feature this theme at 'theme of the day'.
I already done that for Work and Alduin 2.
Thank you for your hard work.
Cheers and keep up the great work. Btw next do you think it's possible some how to get 1px borders, you seem like you'd be the guy to ask.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
Then log off and log in back.
This is the exact trick that I use in my Tiny Windows Borders, but I control it via API.
Note you may see the BorderWidth parameter in the same registry key. You may do not touch it, because BorderWidth is ignored if PaddedBorderWidth equals to zero.
Sadly but no way to set borders size less than 1px.
