Kombo is another great set of visual styles by kiko11.

These themes bring either dark or light to your desktop, and deliver the expected result beautifully.

Just a quick note: the themes don't appear on your desktop exactly like they appear in the preview, you need to mod some icons and use tbariconblanker to achieve a similar look.

The bevel effect is great, and the whole suite just screams for consistency.
The CAD theme is great too, and really fits with the rest of the VS.

The VS is kinda hard to read, although I do believe that this is the point of this minimal VS.

Overall, Great Job!

As always surprise us again with these two visual styles that are perfect for use with desktop windows, Both visual styles combining quality , elegance , finesse and above all a touch of minimalism make them unique.

The Sombras Visual Style certainly will make your desktop look elegant and attractive at the same time without losing the touch of minimalism.

The VS Snow looks awesome, combined with clear wallpaper will make your work environment or your desktop look especially relaxing and elegant.

no doubt these two visual styles are highly recommended for all Windows users who want to make it look more elegant and above all make your desktop more nice and pleasing to the eye.

In the dark version preview, can I have the "Sombras" image?
i can see that you draw the inspiration from chinese scroll paintings, it does have the beautiful touch of a chinese landscape painting,only it's more modern and futuristic,and add some minimalism in it,really love it!thanks for sharing!
Does it work on w8.1?
hey! i just installed the theme recently and really like it. one minor problem though - how do you change the icons of the navigation bar? like the favorites, libraries, etc. those tabs, as well as the HDD icons? i couldn't seem to find them included in the .rar file so i have no idea. thanks for any help.
Thank you so much for this theme! This is actually the first them that I have ever put on a theme, haven't up to this point due to fear that it would corrupt my files or something, your video was very helpful! Though, what value do I have to change to make the font color brighter on the Sombras theme? Again, thank you so much!

I don't like how all of the UI elements lose definition/separation in the dark version. The subtle gradients and outlines are gone. It's just too flat..
For x64 which explorerframe files do you replace? just the x64 or both or what?
After messing up and getting a ton of problems I finally got it working. Here's what you need to do.
If you have windows 7 64-bit get the ExplorerFrame from the x64 folder and put it in system32. I repeat system32.
Leave syswow64 untouched.

If you have windows 7 32-bit copy the ExplorerFrame from the x86 folder.
You're a lifesaver! I'll have to set up a virtual machine and test it tonight.
