It's been awhile since this was last discussed. The last MTS draft was posted by Variant on 14/05/2002 at www.mircscripts.org

For those not in the know, MTS was invented to standardize the way you could "dress up" mIRC. (with colors and informational text schemes)

MTS comprises of:

1) a MTS engine;
2) a MTS theme file.

Many MTS themes files still float around the web on Team Clan X or at bindibox/mircscripts.org, but no standalone MTS engine currently works with mIRC 7.x [1]

Does the mIRC community desire a new standalone MTS engine that works with mIRC 7.x?



[1] Pai's Peace & Protection has an inbuilt MTS engine (MTS version 1.1) that works. PnP works with mIRC 7.46

I've been using Kte v1.5 since I installed it back in the mIRC v6.x series, and it still works today with 7.46:
Code:
; Kte - Kamek's Theme Engine v1.5
; MTS-compatible theme engine (standard v1.0/1.1) -- homepage: http://www3.brinkster.com/ircweb/mts/
; Dialogs made using Dialog Studio

Code:
; K MTS Theme Editor v0.71
; by Kamek, for mIRC 5.91
; /kthm to open it
; dialog tables generated by Dialog Studio

; Features:
;  Schemes support
;  Events support, with descriptions
;  Colors support
;  Font support
;  Nicklist support, including custom characters support
;  Theme reorganizer (sorts theme items)
; Todo:
;  Add support for Images and Sounds
;  Make a better RGB selection method
;  Add preview
;  Add options
;  Add scheme management window (move/remove)

; New in 0.71 (27 sep 2001):
;  Added confirmation for saving when closing the theme editor
;  Automatic fix for Timestamp in MTS 1.0 to 1.1 conversion
; New in 0.7 (29 aug 2001):
;  Added support for unknown items (only raws and a few other for now)
;  Fixed few bugs
;  Changed the way the editor works (it doesn't add blank items anymore)
;  Added the reorganizer

Unfortunately, it appears that homepage is dead...

I stand corrected then for I was under the impression that KTE no longer worked with mIRC 7.x

This might be helpful. I've been fiddling with it and it seems to work, thanks!

A GH repo (https://github.com/acvxqs/MTS-Themes) was created for all your MTS needs. It contains:

* MTS Engines (KTE - mIRC 7.x, mtsloader - mIRC 6.x, hMTSe - mIRC 6.x)
* MTS theme files (1.0, 1.1, 1.2 and 1.3 - source: mircscripts.org)
* Old fonts used back in the day

I only know of MTS files being supported in mIRC 7.x currently by KTE 1.5 (with the regsub fix), by scripts ircN and P&P.

If anyone has working MTS engines or theme files not in the repo, let me know!

edit: Seems there's a consortium working on a new theme standard. Further reading: http://dillingham.ws/MTS-2.0-Documentation/ (https://github.com/jpdillingham/MTS-2.0-Documentation)
