First Message Style Alert.
Ok, now that this is out of the way, let me tell you a little bit about this new Message Style.
I decided to put something a little extra into the style, animation
This style is the first to utilize Yahoo! UI Library (YUI)
I've been meaning to create a Message Style of my own for a while, but haven't had the time or will. The release of AntiPropaganda Message Style pushed me over the edge. My hat is off for the creator of that style as it is simple and beautiful.
To turn off Animations
Feel free to post any bugs you find as I am figuring this stuff out as I go.
- Navigate to ~/Library/Application Support/Adium 2.0/Message Styles
- Right click on 'ArtHeroComplexion.AdiumMessageStyle' and click on Show Package Contents
- Go into Contents, then Resources
- Open 'Template.html' in your favorite editor and go to line 11
- This line: 'doAnimation = true;' should read: 'doAnimation = false;' (just set the variable to false)
- Save and close out. Might have to restart AdiumX
- Please let me know if you'd like to see another Adium style that matches this Message Style well. I'll try to woop something up!
Thanks and enjoy!
LATEST 1/120/2007: I'm back in town and decided to remove fade effect. It slows things down too much. Too much memory cost over small visual benefit, so it's gone. Enjoy faster performance. Remember, for even faster results, just disable animation (read above).
1/16/2007: Added 30 color variations. After I finished I noticed Orange & Pink (yes, Pink) in fact look very similar. I'll fix that later. Also, added a way to toggle the animations (whether you want it or not).
1/16/2007: Fixed big positioning bug. Works much smoother now.
1/15/2007: First release. Kinda buggy. Need ideas, suggestions, critique and perhaps ideas for variant colors.
