THe link you are giving just links to your site and even if someone registers you have forgot to upload the ad remover for Phunk skin.

You might want to look into that..

CrystalPhoenixStudio Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2009  Professional Interface Designer
Technical limitation. It doesn't actually use the colour you pick, it tints the default image with the colour you pick. If you pick white. it tints the image to an unsaturated colour. So yeah. Don't expect to get 100% the colour you want. Messenger doesnt work that way.

The 8.5 version is discontinued now simply because I would have to rewrite a few bits of it in order to make it compatible with the new Messenger Plus! Live. It's something I don't have the time for since people will be forced to upgrade to Messenger 9 eventually.

I have got an archived version of the old 8.5, but please note it may not function correctly. So yeah use it at your own risk.

Is there any possible way to get this to work along with A-Patch? This looks amazing, but now I'm missing some modifications to WLM that are like essential to me now, heh. =)
Reply
:iconcrystalphoenixstudio:
CrystalPhoenixStudio Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2009  Professional Interface Designer
Nah the reason is simply because aPatch directly patches Messengers source files and a skin will load on top of whatever Messengers source files are. So no matter what you do the skin will load its own files on top of whatever you have.

Its a technical limitation so yeah there's nothing you can do.

I thought about making a VS in the past, but I'm on Vista and making visual styles in vista is far too limited to even bother with. There is windowblinds, but that you have to pay for and well I don't want to spend to money. I tried it once, but found that it had issues with far too many programs for my liking.

What people dont realise is there is a text override feature in Messenger Plus that lets you force your contacts font to change.

To use the text override feature in Messenger Plus! live. Go into preferences under the conversations tab and then under the formatting category and tick "override the font used by my contacts by default".

If you choose the font you can also choose the color. Just one thing though, this feature only works if your contact is not using the same font as you so what I did is download a font which is nice and readable but isn't a standard windows font and isn't really common and use that as my writing font.

That way the text override feature would have a high success rate. I just hope that in future versions of Plus skins might be able to control this just so its a lot more user friendly. Until then this is the only workaround.

The other thing you can do of course is go into the skins option and turn on the light background for text areas. That will solve the problem

Just one question please.
When you make a skin, how do you customize the emoticons ?
Reply
:iconcrystalphoenixstudio:
CrystalPhoenixStudio Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2008  Professional Interface Designer
Its just replacing Messengers emoticons resources. It only changes what you see, the people on the other end still see the default ones.

Its mainly just a cosmetic thing. So yeah :P
