I used the msstyles that you had in the zip folder you posted and all I did was make the 2 fill color changes there was no custom images in that msstyles that came with that zip folder that I can see, if you have a msstyles with custom images in it posted and I will change those 2 fill colors again.
There is no free alternative to Windows Style Builder or matter of fact there is no alternative to it at all. If you're going to do any kind of theming it's the best tool you could have it is only about $23 US.

I'm sorry you are right I was working on two different themes at the same time and got yours mixed up. Here is your .msstyles with the background at 128.

Hahahaha, lol. Btw, it works perfectly. When my theme is complete, and I upload it here, I will make sure to give thanks to you. I may have to upload it to a different site, as all the Wallpapers I design, are 2560x2048 and png's. Man does the Rendering take it's tole on my Computer, lol. Thanks again!

You're welcome
You could create an account at deviantART: where ART meets application! and post it there, and then post the link here.

I can't upload my .rar to Deviant Art. It says this file is not available for hat section, or whatever. How would I go at uploading my 2 preview pics and the RAR?

Will do that tomorrow. But I thought of an idea that makes me an idiot for not thinking it up already. I converted the Wallpapers to Jpegs. I'll upload it to a new thread, it's only 4.9mb so it won't kill my phone.
