StarCraft 2 wallpapers made by:

Made a self-installer (for the Visual Style). Download it from my stash:

Instructions on using it:

1. You WILL need a system patch (Universal theme patcher, uxstyle (from uxstyle.com) or UltraUXThemePatcher (www.syssel.net/hoefs/software_….

2. After that you only need to double click on the installer.exe, and it applies the Visual Style.

Using it will only install the visual style itself (wallpaper, cursors, sound, windows and taskbar look, windows skin elements); you'll still need to replace the icons and system files manually (for that, download the archive on the right side on the page).

.ico versions of the icons I made:

Help with installing:

You WILL need a system patch (Universal theme patcher, uxstyle (from uxstyle.com) or UltraUXThemePatcher (www.syssel.net/hoefs/software_….

You have to download / install Start Orb Changer to change the start orb (using the png files in the StartOrb folder).

You can install it and change system files with Theme Installer.

Or alternatively:
1. Install the fonts included
2. Copy the contents of Themes folder to WindowsResourcesThemes folder. You can then apply the Visual Style by going to Personalize, and selecting Starcraft 2 theme.
3. Rename your WindowsSystem32timedate.cpl and explorerframe.dll to something else, and copy the files included in TimeDate and ExplorerFrame folder over (x64 for 64 bit, x86 for 86 bit systems)
4. You can edit the bitmap files in your shell32.dll with a resource editor (I use Restorator2009) by replacing the files of the same name with the ones included in the shell32 folder

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The package includes:

- Visual Style
- Wallpapers
- Cursors (slightly extended version of Starcraft 2 Cursor Set by Darc1n)
- Shell style
- Navigation buttons
- Start orb
- Time and date
