This is a tribute to an old VS which has gone through some revisions over the years. This is revision WIN8.

It makes full use of Windows Auto-Color feature so there is a tonne of possibilities or you can color it your self. Play!

Instructions |

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.

Wow. This looks great. If I put Windows 8 on the old-ish Thinkpad I want to buy, I'm definitely using this theme in gray for that retro look. Well done, especially because it supports colour!
Will this ever be updated for 8.1?

How to hide program icon on taskbar? what program you use?

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!

I put the folder named "Theme" in the Themes folder, but its not showing up as a theme, help?
