Actually, here's a small tip.

There are certain FONTS that seem to crash 4.6

It never likes me using Verdana or some other non standard fonts.

Therefore, I suggest, whilst you make the changes to the theme, save it, then export it to a ALX or JAD. That way, you don;t loose what you;ve done, and can benchmark where the errors are based on your changes.

I know it's a pain in the ass, but works for me, and saved a few themes and progresses several times ;)

Default Help...

I don't seem to have a place to put the svg file. In fact the only place I can load a background is in the icon screen.

where might I find 4.6 if not on Plazmic's website?

PS, this is a breakthrough to me, can't wait to get it running, followed tutorial to a "T" and was very thorough and great, pat yourself on the back for this one dude.

ok. i got 4.6, but it only allows the svg in the custom style. custom only allows 4.5 os.

explain how this guy did animated themes in 4.2, 4.3, and 4.5? 83XX Matrix Animated Theme 4.2/4.3/4.5 - Themes4BB.com

it's not a big deal because i run 4.5. it's just my buddy runs 4.3. it there something other than plazmic that people are using?

Thanks, Cody

The first time I tried it I got an error as well, not sure what it said off hand, I went back and ran through it one more time from scratch and it worked perfectly. The steps work to perfection, I am not sure what I missed but I have not had the issue since that first time. I would start from scratch and try again and let us know what you come up with, I will see if I can get that error by goofing around with it.

You just need to edit some files in plazmic to allow export to lower OS versions.

There are instructions posted here (I think) and at Pimpmyberry on how to do that.

When you edit the .svg file in notepad make sure there is a space in between the "indefinite" and keyTimes.

repeatCount="indefinite" keyTimes=
