Overture 1928

Submitted By Alan Anderson (Shark!!)


Overture 1928: 1928 is a glass on your desktop. It fits with all colors. You can use it anywhere you want without getting afraid of unmatched colors.

- Use with %40 opacity!!
- I used Stars as status icons in the previews.
- The wallpapers used in previews are apple's built-in walls or from


Version 100: initial.

This isn't working for me.Did you make it with the beta version?

# by Shark!! on 01/30/07 at 02:36:02

Yes, with the latest beta.

# by Shark!! on 01/30/07 at 02:40:39

Oh, and did you try downloading instead of installing? I don't know but it may be because of that.

# by lowen on 03/06/07 at 03:45:02

Did you make sure to set it to 40% opacity?

# by Danishdude on 05/28/08 at 20:34:07

U have to download

# by xSpikex on 01/30/07 at 10:20:30

This is very good, I'll use it with my Glass Duck.
5 ducks for this contact-list!

# by enkuturi-akrias on 02/11/07 at 18:15:48

sorry, i mean “Ducks” instead of “docks”

# by neko on 02/12/07 at 15:04:21

best contact list, i think, for use with the NickelCobalt shapeshifter theme.

# by bontaq on 02/12/07 at 20:07:52

Reminds me very much of the iPhone for some reason. It looks splendid. Would love a matching style for messages ;D

# by khagan on 03/28/07 at 13:09:01

# by EmeraldVee on 07/19/07 at 04:40:55

Incredible Xtra you've submitted here. I've always had trouble finding a good way to display my contact list with everything else I've customised on this terminal. This fixes that problem completely. 5/5, definitely. Keep it up!

# by alecocco on 07/20/07 at 05:28:34


dream theater rulez :D

# by oronare on 07/28/07 at 06:28:13

How do i make the message box transparent also? it isnt working :(

# by j8liu on 08/18/07 at 12:18:59

how does one get rid off the scroll button on the left hand side please?

# by m1kee on 11/04/07 at 17:46:15

Preferences > Appearance
Check the box of "size to fit vertically". You might also want to change your window style to Borderless Window or Group Bubbles.

# by shrimp on 01/02/08 at 17:51:10

greetz shrimp

# by kiranimo on 01/09/08 at 01:30:41

# by AL3 on 03/17/08 at 19:30:10

Newbie question: I use Overture 1928, but my contact window displays ONLY the contacts, not the little gray bar on top (the one with the X, - and + buttons). How can I set Adium to display this gray bar while using Overture 1928?
thanks for the help!

# by flamingt0fu on 03/22/08 at 20:09:58

verrrryyy nice :D

# by mymackicksass on 04/12/08 at 20:08:39

have it installed with 40% opacity but doesn't look glossy or like glass, looks dull

# by genbaez on 05/18/08 at 02:45:01

Hello, thanks for creating this Extra.
I have to agree with "mymackickass" comment as it is behaving the same for me. I installed it, but when I so one of your replies, I went ahead and deleted and downloaded instead and installed then. But the results were the same not a glass finish at 40% or less. What could be causing this behavior?

# by thebuggalo on 06/05/08 at 21:36:50

I keep trying to find a contact list that can beat this one, and nothing can match it. It is great. Excellent work!

# by Novarro99 on 06/16/08 at 11:55:58


# by fadingdreams10 on 07/19/08 at 01:52:20

so how do i make it look like the first one?

# by Calexico on 08/27/08 at 11:54:46


I think Solitary Shell would be a cool name for a contact list style :)

# by Rachael1008 on 03/29/09 at 08:46:12

Wow love it!! what is the background that you have used in the top pic?

# by kimiko on 06/12/09 at 00:24:18

Wonderfull! Thanks for share such cool thing. :)

# by SassiLady on 07/07/09 at 06:33:10

H I am new and i would really like to use the contact list style...but after I download them i don't know where to extract the files to, and activate them...would some mind assisting me.....I love this program, it is the best one that I have used for multiple messengers....thank you very much in advance


# by TaisakuOpai on 07/09/09 at 17:52:09

Don't click "download", click "install". From there, Adium will open the Appearance Preferences menu for you and you can easily select the "Overture 1928" from a drop-down menu. It is pretty self-explanatory. And don't worry; I made that mistake, too, at first.

# by SassiLady on 07/09/09 at 22:31:14

for some reason, i don't know why it does'nt work....i use Digsby, is there something else i should have to make these work with that a plug in i might be missing...also i am on a pc not mac...using Vista... does that matter also...thank you so much for responding and trying to help me.....i appreciate it tremendously


# by Segfault on 01/12/10 at 13:27:07

This is designed for Adium, not for Digsby. If you want to theme Digsby, you have to use themes that are DESIGNED for Digsby.

# by Stell on 07/30/09 at 17:18:04

help!!!!!!!! please i installed and downloaded and still noting when i select this theme my contact list just turns black and i really want this theme help someone

# by Stell on 07/30/09 at 17:46:48

what is the name of the 1st wallpaper??

# by Segfault on 01/12/10 at 13:21:42

This wouldn't happen to be named after the Dream Theater song of the same name, would it?

# by MrKT on 03/08/10 at 19:02:17

this is a really nice one

# by kendrewlok on 05/09/10 at 15:05:04

That looks pretty cool. Nice one

# by N6REJ on 06/19/13 at 23:32:05
