Default Make ReaperThemeZip work

I’m trying to get the compressed zipfile to work as a compact theme file. I zip the folder containing the theme file and a folder with all the icons and such. I rename it .ReaperThemeZip and its openable in reaper but it doesnt work, all the icons and colors are default ones. Even unzipping a working thrme and then zip and rename wont work. I tried renaming the folder without zipping but still no luck. Any clues?

This is a method example -
.ReaperTheme + (standard folder containing images and rtconfig txt)
Merged/zipped into .ReaperThemeZip


This is a real world named version example -
FRUIT.ReaperTheme + FRUIT(standard folder containing images and rtconfig txt)
Merged/zipped into FRUIT.ReaperThemeZip

Now we have the t-shirt icon .ReaperThemeZip file type for drag and drop into Reaper

I think this is it...hmmm? yeah ,think so
And that is an imaginary theme called FRUIT

As additional note to prom's post:

Keep in mind that the value of the ui_img= parameter inside the .ReaperTheme file should match the name of the folder holding all the images and the rtconfig.txt
As example:

Default_5.0.ReaperThemeZip
|--- Default_5.0_unpacked <-- folder with images and rtconfig.txt
|--- Default_5.0_unpacked.ReaperTheme <-- with ui_img=Default_5.0_unpacked parameter inside the file
