Alduin W8 Port. by charleston2378 Alduin W8 Port. by charleston2378
This is a Windows 8 port from lassekongo83 [link] "Alduin Xp theme ".


Back in 2008 lassekongo83 make this great theme from Windows xp, check the original : [link] .

After that in 2009 sweatfish [link] port this one to Vista, check his work: [link]

All "lassekongo83" Visual Styles and Skins are "open source". That means you can make modifications and ports as long as you submit it with the same Creative Commons License use, and a link back to the original work too. No need to ask for permission, so if you like this theme say thanks to these two artist ... "lassekongo83" [link] and "swetyfish" [link] for for their hard work.



1.User Account Control must be turned off.
2.make a restore point before any modification.
3.Patch you'r system : [link]
4.Restart PC
5. Copy everything in themes folder into C:WindowsResourcesThemes.


I hex edit "explorerframe.dll" to delete the line inside explorer window "content view" take a look at picture #1.

Shell32 included


Keep in mind I can not please everyone with request, this is a opensource theme, do ur own modifications.

I love this theme and I've been using it for months. There are no alternatives as this is truly the best and most polished theme available. However I recently upgraded to windows 8.1 and few bugs arose.
1- Titlebar on focused programs show a black background with grey font color. (Out of focus programs show a grey background with dark grey font color).
2- Explorer titlebar font color is black making it illegible most of the time.
3- Right-clicking on taskbar buttons show deformed icons and illegible text.

A picture is worth a thousand words:

I tried to fix it myself but I don't have the competence to do it properly. I hope you can release an 8.1 version or a fix!
Thanks for your efforts and congrats for making such a beautiful theme.

Alright I found a workaround for the titlebar backgound issue!
To fix it you need to install this tool:

I'm still working on the jumplist deformed icons and white titlebar text!

Open resources with restorator 2007,look for the files with arrows, move those file to a new folder keeping all organized  and update your original shell32.dll file,explorerframe.dll .
I don't have Windows 8 now and this is an old shell32 and explorerframe.dll sorry for this.

Hi here is the Piano Wallpapers i1-news.softpedia-static.com/i…

Taskbar icons you have to edit those manually using this icons  charleston2378.deviantart.com/…
1-  go to folders search options and select show hidden files.
2-Go to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu and edit icons one by one ...properties/change icon and select one from token icon folder.
3-After edit all the icons you like restart explorer and pin the programs you like to use to star menu and taskbar.

Shortcuts at the top bar, you need RocketDock rocketdock.com/  and the Buff Icon charleston2378.deviantart.com/…  after install the RocketDock software go to C:\Program Files (x86)\RocketDock\Icons and add the icons you like .
Move the programs you need to the dock and edit the icons, right click/rocketDock/icon setting and select the one you like, edit name , etc etc .

I copied everything into the right (I hope so) folders, but I don't get the icons to work...
I got owner of explorerframe.dll and shell32.dll in the system32 folder, renamed them, copied yours into it, restarted, nothing happened.
Even if I try to change an icon manually and browse to the shell32.dll, there are only the "windows standard" icons.
What am I doing wrong?

My system is Win8 x64.

Really nice work.
I hope you can help me. I use a tool called "StartIsBack". That bring me back the startmenu. But i have to change the color of that font. On the left side everything is correct. The color there is black. But on the right side the color is wihte. The Background here is also withe or light grey. That makes it impossible ti read anything here. On the Vista Edition right ant left side, the font is black, but on win8 the right side is withe.

Can you help me there or can you tell me how i can change die color of the font there?

I don't know any other way but I will update this theme, I have to install Windows 8 again, always keep crashing after some updates and I end up formatting my W8 partition.

Make Yourself a copy of windows on a usb drive.
Every time You get black flashing screen after installing updates of win8, just shut the pc down, plug in the usb, an wait till it does it's magic.
Just choose restore system rescue point and your system will be fine.

Win 8 has some problems with uxpatcher and gets stuck on boot after updates.
Block all updates, or unpatch the system when you need to install updates.

Why all Windows 8 themes have a looking like it's an XP or even older OS? Why it looks like after the downgrading?
Reply
:iconda-junkie:
DA-junkie Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2012
"Even older OS" is a little too extreme in my opinion. First, this theme in particular was originally created for Windows XP and then ported to Vista and now Windows 8 like it says in the description.

Then, there is a major change with Windows 8 : aero glass disappeared so no more transparency everywhere like in Windows 7.

And finally, Windows 8 theming is just starting. The current software which is used by themers, WSB (Windows Style Builder) is in alpha stage for Windows 8.

Let some time pass and i'm sure that we'll see a ton of new themes. Windows 8 wasn't even released a month ago, it's a bit too early to say "bah all the themes look like XP".

Thank you! I hope that you're right and we'll see beautiful modern themes for Windows 8 in future.

And... what?! No Aero?! O.O They are acting like other **** developers: cut a half of all OS's funsction and tell that it's faster now (like it was was with "Widnwos 7" after "Windows Vista"). Or like Google did with their "minimalistic" interface? -.- They just think we are stupid...
