Here's my last edit for the night. Credits to: http://tehosc.deviantart.com/ for creating the background. It's transparent so the main background is shown behind rather than the default opaque image.

Panda X.!!! AWESOME WORK
now all we need is a tutorial..

and ill be making many backgrounds and transparent stuff to go with it :)
so we can make a pack sort of thing.

Panda X i noticed something ...

why is the Text on the OLD Software Tiles messed up?
i mean it has a green tint?
is that due to the contrast with purple or maybe it has a setting? the AA on the Text needs the color value to blend and doesnt automatically blend with whatever the background is?

Also i dont see this text problem on that other guys work (the blue one)

Ok, so changing the background color changed the desktop tile app color as well? So then do the metro apps have a preset color for their tile when you make them that can't be changed?

Here's an idea:
Can you see what it looks like with a purple background, white tiles and purple text?

I love the one Panda posted, but I do agree a black background with grey tiles would look hot as well.

Can't wait for someone to release this so we can all do it

I edited System32\shsxs.dll\PNG\5231\1033 & System32\shsxs.dll\PNG\5232\1033 in reshacker with 2 different pics on Win 8 x64... & nothing happened, even after logging off & restarting.

Any help, Panda?

Thanks,
