One at a time Drag and Drop the images onto your desktop and then edit them with a image editor, then one at a time Drag and Drop the images back in to Restorator.
Here are the numbers again and what position they are for:
Hoover 623
Selected 624
Selected not focus 625
Hot selected 626

Click on File then click on Save, when done it will save the original with the either original or backup extension and then the new .msstyles.

This is all I get when I do steps 1, 2, and 3...




EDIT: I got the colors and the ID's on my desktop. But I have no idea what to edit/what they should look like. Is it possible for you to do it for me and then send me a download link to all 4 of them in a zip file?

You are opening up the wrong file, you opened up the Luna.mstyles.mui you need to open up the Luna.mstyles.

I don't quite understand your edit what do you mean you have the colors and the IDs on your desktop?
