Acid 8.1 by link6155 Acid 8.1 by link6155

This is Acid, the light variant of Base

Always create a system restore before attempting to modify your system with any themes or tool! I am not responsible for anything that happens to your computer! See FAQs if you're updating this theme from an older version.

Please read the FAQs before commenting!

FAQs:

Q: What is Acid? Is this suppose to make you see flashing neon colors?
A: Acid is a theme for Windows 8.1 and Windows 8. The name comes from the pH scale (Base and Acid), not from drugs :| 

Q: Theme doesn't look like the screenshot!
A: Make sure you patched your system and you have shadows enable (this is required).

Q: How can I download this?
A: Press the download button on the right side of the page.

Q: How can I install this theme?
A: Take the content of the zip folder you downloaded and place it in C:\Windows\Resources\Themes. Make sure you patch your computer using UXThemePatcher. You can also patch with UXStyle, but I do not recommend this.

Q: How do I update the theme?
A: First, make a restore point to make sure you can always go back if anything goes wrong. Afterwards, change your theme to another theme such as the default aero theme. Log off and on, then insert the new theme files in the appropriate location (see above). Apply the theme and you're good to go!

Q: Help! The theme isn't applying and I am getting a grey basic theme!
A: Make sure to patch/override your uxtheme.dll file using UXStyle or UXtheme Ultra patcher.

Q: Will there be a windows 7 version?
A: Possibly, but I currently don't have Windows 7. Please do not ask as I already addressed this.

Q: May I use this theme in my transformation/customization pack? May I make a mirror/redistribute it? Could I modify it for public use?
A: Absolutely no, unless you have permission from me. If you do redistribute or modify my work, you will be violating the Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-No Derivative Works 3.0 License.

If it's named "Acid", I think you should add a touch of light green to it.

Like stated in the description, the theme is named based on the pH scale (base and acid).

This is fairly low priority for me as I have some upcoming projects that I will reveal soon. Also, Vanilla for 8.1 looks very similar: link6155.deviantart.com/art/Va…

This has been my theme of choice for some time.  Great work!  I updated to Windows 8.1 and window titlebars are not displaying properly.  See this image as an example: i.imgur.com/NsoGqAg.jpg. Does anyone know whether this can be fixed?

Thank you!

That's because this theme wasn't designed for windows 8.1. You can try to change the color settings of windows to match the white colored titlebar, but it won't be perfect and the taskbar bug will still be there.

Thanks for the quick response.  I'll play with the colors and see what effect it has.  Any chance of an 8.1 theme update?

By the way, I really enjoy the work you have posted here.

link6155 Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2013  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Well, you can use 7conifer (you can find it here on deviantart). It will change the icon for explorer, but only on the taskbar. Another way is to use resource hacker, replace the icon, and take ownership of the file

xiannero Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2013
bro i tried both actually i am using 7conifer,it change all of the icons without explorer and not even it change icon in taskbar and i tried resouce hacker earlier , replace the icon ,did take ownership but doesn't work ,it says ""this app cant run in your pc , to find a version for your pc contact with the software publisher""" . As i am using win 8.1 rtm so if you able to change it just let me know
