Night Lion for Windows 8 / 8.1 by erelchris Night Lion for Windows 8 / 8.1 by erelchris
Night Lion theme for Windows 8 and 8.1!! 
(Download  SkinPack Auto UXThemePatcher 3.0  first and patch your system before applying the theme)


UPDATE! 3/05/13
:: only compatible with 100% DPI resolution :D (those 1920x1080 resolution default is 125%)
:: theme now compatible with Windows 8.1
:: minor modifications with windows frame
:: Mac cursors added
:: Title bar fixed and jumplists fixed 
    if Title bar too large >> Right Click desktop > Personalization > Display > Title bar font size (8)
:: to enjoy Windows 7 library groupings, disable Ribbon etc >> OldNewExplorer.rar




NOTE: that the taskbar below, is a real taskbar.. :) 
            (no third party apps, shadows or anything, just plain tasbar)



To fully enjoy the theme..
:: you need to center the taskbar
:: hide systemtray icons (clock disabled - optional)
:: disable the statusbar (Folder & search options)
:: start menu not yet customized (coming soon)




Hope you enjoy this theme..
If you do, just leave a comment here, would gladly appreciate it :)

God bless deviantart.com

yeah.. it doesnt match .. i have fixed it before, like in the screenshot but dunno how ive done it, ive tweaked it in the registry maybe. Nevertheless,  the possible solution for this is this..

    if Title bar too large >> Right Click desktop > Personalization > Display > Title bar font size (8)

please try it then we'll see. Mine looks like these

I'm having the same issue on win8.1 where the minimize/maximise/close buttons aren't changing even though I have run the patcher and restarted first. Can anyone help?

:iconerelchris:
erelchris Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2015  Hobbyist Interface Designer
the problem is your resolution.. change your DPI to 100% go to Right click desktop > Make text and other items bigger/smaller > Let me choose tickbox > 100% ..

but still this is temporary because i will need to update the theme for it io work on 1920 displays to make text bigger :))

hmmm maybe because your Windows 8/8.1 isnt patched yet. You need to download a universal theme patcher for windows 8/8.1 then you can apply the theme properly. This is required for all themes here in deviantart :D

I love this theme, except I wish there was an option for a more normal sized taskbar, I don't like my task bar to be huge. I also wish the start button was more centered and didn't sit higher then the other icons. I get that it was designed to look as in the picture, but I am quite picky about my taskbar.

I really like everything except the size of the taskbar and the fact that the start button is not centered with the icons.

When I install it the file explorer doesn't works.. I've tried to open Windows Explorer.. and the screen flashes 5 seconds.. and the session is closed.. I have to LogIn again.. and I can't do anything.. this is the secon time that I install it.. and It happened the same.. How can I fix it?

erelchris Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2014  Hobbyist Interface Designer
what are you installing? you'll just need to install the Skinpack theme patcher, and then copy the theme to C:\Windows\Resources\Themes and then apply the theme... have not encountered that problem..

If you run any problems that again, you'll need to restore your system with System Restore..
