This is a modification of RocketStyle. I made this message style because RocketStyle has not been updated since it was released over 6 months ago and there were a few things I and other users wanted modified in the original theme. It still only uses CSS3 so it is super fast. For a general idea of how it looks check out the original RocketStyle theme. Only difference is animations for the most part.


Version 1.7.2:
+Woops! Random bug with multiple lines and spacing fixed

Version 1.7.1:
+Removed that pesky line spacing between messages

Version 1.7:
-Removed SenderColors.txt because it wasn't very random
+Support custom background images
+Timestamps on all messages in For the Adventurous

Version 1.5:
SenderColor variant included - named For the Adventurous
Added SenderColors.txt to ensure that you can read the sender name

Changes from RocketStyle 1.0:
Faster animation speed all around
Modified history animation upon window opening
Modified message layout so sender names are not included in animation during conversation only message content
Theme is now font-independent and will work with any
Modified look and animation of url links in theme

This is my new favorite style ever, it's fantastic.

It would be even better with a variant for IRC, it would need just a couple of tweaks:
1) Have the nick, time and message all on the same line
2) Random colors assigned to users like yMous/xMous does

I modified the theme to support SenderColors if you select the variant but to do #2 would break the layout of the theme... best I could do is append the sent time on the same line as the text rather than next to the username. Not sure if I like that.

Thanks, it's an improvement. I hope you'll reconsider changing the layout at some point. Maybe decreasing the line spacing would help? Anyway, thanks again

I spoke with the maker of minimal_mod and he provided pointers on how to do what you are requesting... I am busy for the time being but might have some free time this weekend to implement his suggestion.

Fixed the line spacing as well as time stamps on the group chat! Sorry I took so long!

Customizable backgrounds would be so awesome, i use HUD skin so black @ 80% op. would look so cool.
