Starcraft 2 Windows Theme by yorgash Starcraft 2 Windows Theme by yorgash
Nicholas Chaussois!

The release of my StarCraft 2 Windows theme. Many thanks to everyone here and everywhere else for their feedback and suggestions. I couldn't have made this without all the advices I've gotten.

Included the general and Zerg wallpaper, as well as Beautiful Space by Robsonbillponte666.
Protoss and Terran wallpaper coming soon.

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 or UltraUXThemePatcher (….

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).

I probably FINALLY managed to fix the issue with the tray icons. It should be good now, tested it for hours, restarting (takes hell long minutes with my comp), moving taskbar, etc, etc, and it remained correct this far.

Some thing I've forgotten to include with the latest pack:

.ico versions of the icons I made:

Start Orb:


Help with installing:

You WILL need a system patch (Universal theme patcher, uxstyle (from or UltraUXThemePatcher (….

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

Planning on making a matching Rainmeter skin for the package.

Not sure what might have caused this problem, but if you can open task manager (either by ctrl+alt+del, or right click on the taskbar -> run task manager) you can start a command prompt (File -> new task (Run...) -> type in cmd.exe (or if you can open up start menu you can just type in cmd.exe there).

If you have the command prompt open, you can type in sfc /scannow to restore affected system files.

I'm guessing if you indeed messed up the system with this theme, it must have had something to do with the file "Shell32.dll", since that's the only part that can cause a mess of the system.
ok that seemed to have worked, was a little problem to run this as admin without windows exporer but i managed to do it . it seems like everything is ok now. Thanks for the quick help.
