Hello everyone...

So, since Windows 8 is on the edge, or even better, installed and running happy on my PC.

I'm a huge modder, a fan of custom made visual styles (themes). Prev. in win7 i have a bunch, but now I miss them. Does any1 know if there is a UXTheme patch available for win8 yet? If so, link please...

I would on some "crappy" forums, some app, which claims to be working in the "customer preview" version of win8. [my_wcp_theme_patch, didn't run it yet, but no virus found]

Metro ahoy.

There will probably be a theme patcher for the desktop side as before but I dunno what you can tweak as far as the start screen goes at this point. I think at best there could be a tool that will let you use your own background image on the start screen but that's really as far as I see that going for now.

Eventually there probably will be but you may have to wait a while.

Can developers make custom made themes with Aero compatiblity? It will be really handy, because the way we can add transparency to the theme now is very buggy.

Here's another: http://windows8theme...e-in-windows-8/ And Rafael Rivera is going to update his in-memory patch, UxStyle, once he gets the kernel mode driver signing certificate. :p
