Witcher 2 - Assassins of Kings is one of the best games of 2011. We played it ourselves and we enjoyed it a lot. While playing it, we started searching for Witcher 2 inspired themes for Windows 7. Unfortunately we did not find many options, so we decided to create a theme ourselves, using high-quality wallpapers and sounds from the game itself. We love the end result and we think you will enjoy it as well.What is Included in the Theme?
Unlike many other Windows 7 theme packs, this one has plenty of wallpapers included: a total of 18 high quality Witcher 2 wallpapers.

After our Starcraft 2 theme pack, we moved our attention to Mafia 2 fans and created a theme pack for Windows 7. Because we were really impressed of how cool the soundtracks for this game are, we used part of those to create the sound scheme for our themes. We have created sounds for: Windows logon and logoff, critical stop, device connect and disconnect, program error and others. Each theme pack is designed for a different resolution: 1024x768, 1280x1024, 1600x1200, 1680x1050 and 1920x1200. We have used different images that will be set as desktop background, in each theme pack.
For all Starcraft 2 fans, we have something special - Starcraft 2 theme packs for Windows 7. I have created 5 theme packs for the most popular resolutions used by our readers: 1024x768, 1280x1024, 1600x1200, 1680x1050 and 1920x1200. Each of them contains different images that will be used as desktop backgrounds and automatically changed at a 15 minutes interval. We wanted to give a special touch to these theme packs so, we have used original Starcraft 2 sounds to create a little sound scheme, which is included in the themes.
At the installation of Windows 7 you are prompted for your country and language. Based on your selection, a group of themes will be installed. Apart from that, Windows 7 will copy on your hard disk some additional hidden themes that you aren't aware of. There are a few hidden themes, considered by Microsoft to be regional themes which aren't accessible in the default list of installed themes. For example, for English distributions of Windows 7 you have themes for countries such as Australia, Canada, South Africa, Great Britain and the US.
