Can someone port the Win8 RP Theme to 8.1 Update? Currently I can't see the new option on start tiles.

Don't they look the same, Andre?
 
Night,
I followed your link and tried this theme in the gallery: 
Find it nearly perfect. Just don't know why on my desktop there is blur on the right part of Start Menu which I don't see on the screenshot posted there. It doesn't happen to any other themes I apply. Do you know how to fix this?

no, there is a difference between CP and RP:

I like the RP Theme more.

Um, they look almost the same to me! Even I find the CP theme posted by Night much alike the theme RP you posted. The refresh button on the address box and the notification area on the taskbar look just the same.

DoubleSAnimations,

Thank you for updating Aero X theme. But could you make the text on the title bar appear in the middle? I think the text looks nicer in the center.

Thanks again for sharing your themes!

Er... the text on the title bar is aligned to the left only on File Explorer! With every other windows open, the text is always in the center. Sorry I didn't check it carefully! 

Find it acceptable. Decided to use this theme from now on! Thanks again for updating it.

You guys should take a look at http://www.deviantar...-2014-456874063 for DoubleSAnimation's newest theme. It is my newest favorite from his series of themes.

 

Great job my friend!

Gah, the Shine theme won't be ported to win8/8.1 it seems (see author comment, currently page 3). Any chance someone could adopt that theme? I had a version that worked for 8.1... but 8.1.1 broke the context menu on the start screen.

Hi... Sorry for a slightly offtopic question, but have there been any themes for 8.1 recently that look close enough to Windows 7 and don't require Aero Glass? I mean, I don't care about the blur effect, I just want a little transparency (almost opaque) without blur. Also I need the caption glow back, but last time I checked, it was messed up and you had to install Aero Glass to make it work correctly. Has there been any improvement on that?

 

Thanks!

If you use Tihiy's OldNewExplorer @ http://www.msfn.org/...like-win78-one/
 
Then check off the option "Hide caption text in File Explorer windows" you don't have to deal with the blurred text and personally
looks a lot cleaner and unclutterd.

Great, sounds good and btw if you or anyone else can send me the ExplorerFrame.dll file for the RP I would really appreciate it, seems the Microsoft

redmond download site has pulled the rp downloads.
