dUMBaSS v8 by neiio dUMBaSS v8 by neiio
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!

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!

Hello! I'd like to start off by congratulating you for your awesome work.
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?

Thank you for your hard work.

Thanks so much for the great tool. I didn't even realize you were here on dA. I updated all the link to point to you instead with proper credit. Also added it to a few groups. ;)

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. :D
Reply
:iconhb860:
hb860 Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2012
You can get 1px borders with the following tweak:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics]
"PaddedBorderWidth"="0"

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.
