Black seems the most popular request and make. I myself am currently working on a black version of the tiles.

I'm not much of a forum person, but since panda x was so kind to share a tutorial AND his purple tile theme, I thought I would share back. (I hope to see your black version soon.)

So are the tiles themselves a layer you can mess with? I'm wondering if you can do anything with them transparency wise or have something like themes for them since it seems the desktop tiles color changes though the metro app tiles have some preset color of their own.

Transparency is technically possible with them. I haven't tried it though.

Also just released the 32-bit hex table and Tiles Series - Black http://metrothemes.deviantart.com/

Yo Panda X,

Thanks for the great work. I have messed with the transparencies a little. on metro start background the alpha (FF) of hex value i changed to 17, it made the center transparent but not the top and bottom green mosaic. I thought it was just a matter of changing the FF alpha value. My question is how did you change green mosaic to purple tiles? I would like to make something similar with transparency!

The image I added in shsxs.dll > PNG > 5231 and 5232.png is transparent so the background color shows behind it. Those images are opaque by default.

Thanks. the transparency does not work that well. when scrolling the previous buffer frame is still displayed. Any idea on if a transparent theme is possible?
