After much delay, I've finally decided to release the HUDchat theme.

Theme includes two bubble styles : White and HUD plus a special "Simple" variant based on Hirogen's original HUD theme (with permission, of course)

feature set the same as those of my other theme AdiumyChat including

- custom scrollbars
- smooth scrolling
- fading in chat bubbles
- animated links
- fade-in timestamps

Just a note : by popular demand I have turned on Custom Backgrounds. However, I would strongly recommend using some really dark backgrounds, as the theme was not designed with light backgrounds in mind. For lighter backgrounds, I would suggest AdiumyChat

PS : This is just the messagestyle. To get the window mod, go here -->


-various bugfix
-new status notification style in Simple
-new Graphite and Aqua bubble configurations
-tweaked scrollbar + scrolling

- bugfix

- preliminary release

Sweet! I'm going to take this for a spin for a while. Very clean. And I like the dark theme.

HUDchat, is phenomenal. The SIMPLE variant of the message style, makes all the difference in the world. Now if the overall HUD theme can work nearly as well :) There are still issues with the overall window mod and function buttons working properly, but that in no way, should detract from the design and function of HUDchat

Does not work with 1.5 under 10.7.3. Adium gives the "This is not compatible with your architecture bla bla" error.

Any chance of a version of this which doesn't have the scollbars?

We're now using 10.9 so they look a bit silly.

In addition, is there a way to implement a version of HUD with names instead of icons for IRC? Or at least using proper bubbles for Simple (which is what I use for IRC)?
