Starcraft 2 Windows Theme by yorgash Starcraft 2 Windows Theme by yorgash

My StarCraft 2 themed visual style for Windows.

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.

Windows 8 port thanks to poweredbyostx

StarCraft 2 VS for Windows 8 by yorgash 

Wallpaper used in the screenshot besides the SC2 walls is 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).


.ico versions of the icons I made:


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


- mail: 
- Steam account: yorgaSh
- Skype: yorgash55
- and of course, you can contact me here, too.


Planning on making a matching Rainmeter skin for the package.

I love the look of the beautiful space and theme above but when I tried downloading and installing it all I got were the other wallpapers, the sound effects and my recycling bin got deleted. Probably a stupid move but I thought I'd try again by starting from scratch but I can't delete the themes I downloaded, I deleted all the files I downloaded, but when I go into my personalization options, the themes are still there, minus the beautiful space one, which is the one I was hoping for...   

I'd really love some suggestions here.

First of all: thanks!

Not sure how it deleted your recycling bin and stuff, but if you apply the default theme, delete your \Windows\themes\SC2 folder and sc2 .theme files, it should disappear.

If you install it again and apply any of the themes, you can change the wallpaper the same way you normally would, I've linked the space wallpaper in the description, it's  Beautiful Space by Robsonbillponte666.

Amazing job! I really like this.

Maybe it's just me, but I find it hard to change all the icons, even using Iconpackager, I have got to change them one after another. Is there any way to automate this? Or some kind of package out there with your icons?
yorgash Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2014  Hobbyist Interface Designer
I might do iconpackages for my themes, I'm just a little bit under the weather nowadays.
I still have 2-3 projects I have to finish, but if I find the time in between, I'll update the themes with links of the iconpacks.
