I fixed the .themepack. The original themepack (even from the NA site) was referencing Japanese characters in some of the sound file names and was causing the installer to not work on computers that weren't in the Japanese locale. I have re-exported the themepack for sharing under an English locale and hopefully it will now just work for other people.

Before I felt the theme was lacking sounds, but seeing the one with more sounds fixed, it's fine now.

As a little bonus I extracted the PS3 theme and added some of the sounds found from there into a second theme. If you need more detail, such as a list of sounds I changed, check the readme. I'll also be including the extracted PS3 theme as a separate download, which has some additional icon images, but I didn't use them.

Let me know if everything works!!


Worked like a charm on Windows 7. Thank you!

Yeah, Windows theme packs are notorious for being a pain in the ass to open :/

If anyone wanted just the images for wallpapers:

Thank you. I didn't want a theme just wanted the pics :)

For some reason its still not adjusting to the sounds for me, I may have to manually input them in each particular spot instead of relying upon the theme file to do the work, but I'll come back when you repack it.

Yeah hopefully it's fixed now, when I originally extracted it there was only the system shutdown sound.

Yeah I saw a couple other "fixed versions" and they all seemed to be missing something (sounds, the wallpapers, etc.) so I tried to combine them all. At this point the link above should be good and might even contain more sounds than the official one, I really have no idea at this point. DON'T use the link in the quotes lol
