try deviantart or customize.org

I know for sure deviantart has a nice set of half-life walls... look for their GAMES section under wallpapers...

I can't link you up because they don't allow searches by non-members but you can definitely search for it

for actual theme (ie the shell-theme) you can also find a similar thing if you are using the uxtheme hack and dl one of the darker themes from DA or other sites...

wrt wmp9 or winamp... I know there is an official half-life2 theme out for wmp9... not so sure about winamp...

http://www.customize.org/details/34897



props to Skins Factory for the excellent skin...

there are also half-life based icons available... on DA and other sites...

IIRC there are themes... as I said I can't do searches on DA

but that wmp9 theme IS sweet

there are also some excellent dock and shelltheme icons for half life 2 (and doom/painkiller/far cry and co) on DA and other sites...

from DA


clicky here (half life 2 - broken frames by Novacron)

his deviation gallery with some other HL2 walls...

http://novacron.deviantart.com/gallery/

----------------------------------------

here are a few other sites with walls...

http://hl2.ogaming.com/content/image...Name=wallpaper

http://www.ati.com/gitg/downloads/wallpapers/#HL2R360

http://www.hl2arena.com/pages/wallpapers.asp

http://halflife2.filefront.com/files...Wallpaper;2450

amongst others...

personally I prefer a minimalist d'top which is highly functional so I may tend to post along those guidelines...

How does one install that WMP9 skin anyway? Skin importer? It's in ZIP format and you can't just toss them in the skins directory like you can Winamp...

you just dbl click on the theme usually and it automatically uploads...

else you can use the skin chooser feature in full-mode wmp9 and select the skin to try out...

This is a Mac theme, but hopefully will get ported to windows.
