One of the "substitute people"
Can I substitute for Kirsten?
Can any of you help me? I use AIM. I used to have a background image on the message screen and on the buddy list I dl'd from Mytheme.com. I had to install again and now I can't find the theme! Waaaaaa!! Any idea where it's located on my hd or where I could re-download? Mytheme.com only has that cutsie shit and just... UGH. LOL

Anyone got any ideas? I'm tired of pulling my hair out. I just want my Orli back.

Didn't we have this problem before and it showed up when you dl'ed the older version of AIM? (Which I have on my HD if you need, or check out

I installed an older version--the one you gave me, I think. But I don't know where to find the background I had before and the place I dl'd from--they don't offer anything like what I want any more. :(

Sorry. I don't know.

They'll no longer store the whole theme for you, and they won't list your theme on their site. I think when you make it, they give you the file? You have to upload it to your server if you want to share it with friends? I'm not too sure about that part.

However, I DO know you can make your theme again, providing you've still got the pics you want to use, and then just download it for yourself. The IM sidebar and buddylist sidebar pictures have to be hosted on your own. You reupload the background pictures, point them to the sidebar pictures, and then mytheme will give you the link for your personal download. Here's the direct link to make your own theme - http://www.picgames.com/forum/create.php

Aaaaand, I may have misread what you wanted. What version of AIM are you using? I know I haven't "upgraded" the past few times because their newer versions didn't work with the themes, and I needed my Viggorli. Then mytheme changed so that the sidebars didn't work for the longest time. Just in the couple months, they "fixed" that and all. Anyway, if I can be of more help, let me know - here, or I'm on AIM as PuterPatty78.

I have 5.5.398 and I had VigOrli too. I MISS THEM!! I had them on the old pc and now I don't even show the extra space on my buddy list. I'm so beyond frustrated....

I'm using 5.5.3598, which you can download here. I think any of the higher versions gave me trouble with my theme. If you're interested, my theme looks like this --

I do have a background for the IM chat window, but as alliwantisanelf is away for the weekend, giving me no one to chat to :(, I can't show you what that looks like. Well, actually I can. It's a very basic blend I made of Vig and Orli, back when I had NO CLUE what I was doing in PSP.

I had this theme up at mytheme.com when they were posting and sharing people's themes. If you don't want to go through making your own theme, you're more than welcome to use any or all of my pics.

Hope this helps! I HATE when I can't see my boys! The IM experience diminishes terribly!

You may have to do what I did and download an older version of AIM.
