This is a SabreMSN theme package for use on classic Amigas using PAL/NTSC High Res screen modes, or any other "tall pixel" mode. Parts of the package can be installed and used individually, or together. Included in the package you'll find: (Read more)
* Custom pixelled Emoticons and Status Avatars (16colour ILBM format). * Original sound files converted to Amiga 8SVX format. * MUI Settings file. * FullPalette Settings file. * VisualPrefs Settings file. * Some nice fonts by Link ( linkcharge.kicks-ass.org )
* SabreMSN ( http://wookiechat.amigarevolution.com/sabremsn ) - Obviously * FullPalette ( http://aminet.net/package/util/wb/FullPalette22 ) - Only important if your Workbench is in 16 colours. * VisualPrefs ( http://aminet.net/package/util/wb/VisualPrefs ) - Not important, but it helps.
* Copy the directories GFX/, SMILEYS/, and SOUNDS/ into your SabreMSN/ directory. * Copy the contents of Fonts/ to SYS:Fonts/. * Copy SABREMSN.1.prefs to SYS:Prefs/Env-Archive/MUI/
* Double-click on FullPalette16 to set your Workbench to the optimised palette. Open FullPalette and click "Save" if you're happy with the new colours (I've tweaked this palette to be as compatible and flexible as possible, it's useful for both MagicWB and NewIcons, as well as Workbench games). FullPalette must of course be installed. * Double-click on VisualPrefs16 and check it all out, if you like it you can open the GUI Prefs and click "Save".
Load up SabreMSN and check it out. I hope someone out there can get some use out of this.
If I am using AmigaSYS 4 AGA as my main operating system I would not be needing all these extra links you send me, do you? What steps or advice you have for people using AmigaSYS 4 AGA? Thanks in advance.
P.S "Are you going to support the animated emiticon and custom emiticon we use in MSN?"

@foody Being that AmigaSYS is just OS3.x there's no reason why things that apply to OS3.x wont also apply to AmigaSYS. The only exceptions are when AmigaSYS already contains any extras that are needed over a "vanilla" install. I'd be surprised if it didnt contain Fullpalette though (I assume this is what youre talking about) , as thats already a part of os3.9 (also maybe 3.5).
