As requested, here’s theÂ AURIGAÂ Windows XP theme.
This theme was made for Windows XP, it’s a Classic theme so it should work fine on Windows Vista/7 if you activate classic theme. Of course, it’s compatible with Windows 95/98/Me. It’s been running on AURIGA till this day and I alsoÂ installedÂ it on my computer at work. Colleagues and the IT guy keep telling me how weird it looks but I think it’s more comfortable for the eyes than the default windows bright white-in-your-face theme.
1- This theme is a classic Windows theme, so you need to activate classic theme.
2- Extract the archive anywhere you want and copy the font in your Windows Fonts folder (C:WindowsFonts).
3- Start Desktop Architect (da.exe) and open AURIGA Theme Black, this theme only sets Colors, Font names and styles, Font and windows sizes so you have to untick all other elements in the settings (on the right side of Desktop Architect window). Have a look at options and apply the theme.
4- Go in Windows Sound Proprieties and set sound events with provided wav files.
5- Set Wall_1.bmp as desktop wallpaper.
6- Install Logon Studio and setÂ Auriga Logon as logon screen.
7- Start Samurize and run Auriga config file. Then you have to play a bit with options, move the config to the top left corner of your screen and set the config as unclickable background.
8- move Segment-X skin file to your Winamp skin folder and select it in Winamp options.
Sounds are extracted from Wipeout Pulse PSP game. There’s not much to do to install this theme, Desktop Architect and Samurize are portable so you can move them to any folder you want. You might have to edit Samirize config file to fit your system since it was made to monitor my harddrives and quad core CPU. If you have any problem with installing any part of this theme, leave a comment and I’ll try to help.
