    Diablo 3 Windows Theme Pack

    Hey all,

    I just completed making a diablo 3 theme pack. There's some pictures above. Unfortunately, it's not quite ready and the bugs that I've found (about 3 of them) - I can't fix. So I'm hoping some creative people out there who are good at this kind of thing can take a look at it and fix them or tell me how to fix those bugs and then we can all enjoy this theme pack together.

    Also, any feedback or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
    Know bugs:
    1. Missing all program background as seen in second pic.
    2. Some issue with the lower half of the shutdown menu if you have unupdated windows updates in need of updating. the lower part just melts kinda.
    3. if you use notepad, this irritating orange thing keeps blocking the stuff you wanna highlight and i really don't know how to fix this one.

    special thanks to holyknight3000, I used some of your runes to make this theme pack. hope you don't mind.
    ps - the dock in the first picture isn't included in the pack. you can download that at http://www.rocketdock.com. Just look for a dock by typing diablo 3 in the search field.

    Oops. Forgot the installation instructions. My bad.
    Well, first off you need to install a program call windowblinds by stardock. Once you got windowblinds installed, you open it up. there should an option staring at you called add visual styles. what you do next is click that option, then click "i want to add visual style from my computer" and finally select the the winrar file you just downloaded. that would add that style to your windowsblind and then all you do is click "apply this visual style" and you should have this skin installed. mind you, there are a few glitches here and there, so it might be a little irritating. hopefully, it will be sorted out soon...

    oh, I thought this was standalone. Pity, because I have uninstalled windowblinds and don't want to install it again. Anyway, maybe in the near future.
    Is there a way to have only the dock appear Diablish??

    I'm using rocketdock and that's where I found this diablo 3 dock. you go to their website www.rocketdock.com. they'll ask what you wanna search for. just type diablo 3 and there'll be a dock background which is the one i'm using. just download it and it's ready for use. not sure if it works with other dock programs besides rocketdock.

    Hi!

    Very cool theme, but unfortunately I can't install it with Windowblinds. The program says: "There appears to be no .uis file in this skin. Are you sure it is a WindowBlinds skin?" I don't know what can I do with this, can anyone help me?

    PS: Sorry for my bad English, I'm not from England/America and I never learned this language.

    That is absolutely awesome. I hope you are able to fix the stuff, please give us a heads-up when you do.
    I have slowly been skinning everything I possibly could with D3 paraphernalia. :D
    Hopefully this will make it to the front page.

    Hey neat theme you've got going there.
    But why not just use the Windows 7, "Save Theme" Feature?
    I for one will not download an app to just load a theme, its another thing in the registry and who knows if there is adware with them?

    Here is a link that may clarify setting up themes in Windows 7.

    If you've seen this link or know this already my apologies.
