The latest version of my color schemes for mIRC can be found in my last post at the end of this thread.
Posted By: maroon Re: My color schemes - 03/12/18 11:02 AM
For anyone who has avoided using some of these themes due to lack of contrast for selected text in the editbox or selected nicks in the nicklist, that should not be a deal-breaker.

The foreground/background colors for selected nicks, or selecting text in the editbox comes from the theme you defined in Windows' control-panel. This is also used for selected lines in menus or dialogs.

It's possible to edit just that 1 setting in windows without changing your entire theme. Or, you could tweak the mirc theme to choose editbox and listbox colors which contrast against the selection colors.

The way to change that setting will be different in different versions of windows. For Windows 7:

1. Open Control Panel
2. Choose Personalization
3. At the bottom of that area, click on "Window Color", which opens a dialog "Window Color and Appearance".
4. If you current theme is currently "unsaved theme", you'll either want to save the current theme to another name so you can return to it, or write down the current RGB colors before you change them.
5. In the 'item' dropdown, choose 'Selected Items'.
6. For now, let's avoid changing the font or the size, and notice the 2 squares labeled 'Color'. The top square is the background color and the bottom square is the text color. These control the text and background color for these selected items both here in mIRC and pretty much all Windows Apps.
7. You'll want to choose a background color that contrasts well against the foreground color you choose, but also contrasts well against the foreground/background colors you choose in the Alt+K dialog for the foreground/background colors in Editbox and Listbox.
8. When you click on either Color square, it opens a window showing a grid of 20 colors to choose from. If you don't like any of those shades, you can click 'Other' where you can create any RGB shade you wish.
9. When you click 'ok' or 'apply' the color setting is changed. It will then change your theme to be 'unsaved theme'. If you like it, you should click 'save theme' to give it a name. If you don't like this change, you could keep trying other color shades or just go back to your existing Control Panel Colors Theme prior to this change.

It's not Wad's palette' standard anymore but "Wad's BlackGr2" is a little more readable IMO, the gray is a lighter.
Posted By: eahm Re: My color schemes - 09/12/18 02:17 AM
Adjusted the first blue on few shemes, added Dark background version of Monokai on all the Monokai schemes.
Posted By: Maelish Re: My color schemes - 10/12/18 02:39 PM
A screen shot would be nice. That way we could see the theme without installing it first.

Few may look the same but the palettes are slightly different.

Would that be more convenient?


/writeini mirc.ini colors n1 HexChat Black,1,6,4,7,11,3,3,3,3,3,3,15,7,8,6,15,3,11,3,7,15,1,15,1,15,14,6,1,1,15

Or build a dialog? It would be good!
Easy to add to mirc

Are you asking me? I don't care about that at all or how people do it, I'm just having fun with colors, I barely use or used mIRC in the last 7-8 years anyway. It takes 2 seconds to copy all that and paste it in mirc.ini, this is all extra.
Posted By: eahm Re: My color schemes - 16/12/18 06:07 PM
Added Zenburn, Zenburn2, Zenburn2Dark and ZenburnDark based on this one: https://github.com/tokoyami/config-files/blob/master/mirc/zenburn.ini
Posted By: eahm Re: My color schemes - 17/12/18 03:41 AM
Most of the screenshots are here: https://imgur.com/a/cHKyLCn, I still have to add the last five (Dracula and Zenburn).

If you want to see any of these themes I can try to make them for mIRC: https://tmtheme-editor.herokuapp.com/

I may also add these ones next: https://github.com/ayu-theme/ayu-colors#colors

Added Dracula theme from the original palettes https://draculatheme.com/

Just a reminder, the HexChat schemes are "temporary", only the palettes and their color order were imported, I don't have much time to play with them at the moment and HexChat seems to have 16 colors + background (please correct me if I'm wrong here) which makes mIRC hard to copy the same themes.


I had to modify few colors that I missed.

Not sure I modified anything else but Tempesta and Tempesta2 background is 2 points lower again, now 24,24,24 (identical to the Zenburn Darker themes), more readable this way.
Posted By: eahm Re: My color schemes - 16/01/19 05:21 PM

Added all Monokai in Darker colors, SolarizedBlack and SolarizedDarker.

Sorry guys, can't get enough of background darkness so I made a version of all the extra ones with the black background. Enjoy.

Added four schemes based on Lincon http://mc0de.github.io/lincon-hexchat-theme/
Posted By: kap Re: My color schemes - 18/02/19 04:37 PM
Hey eahm!

Would you consider managing your color schemes by creating a repository for it, over at https://www.mircscripts.nl?
Posted By: eahm Re: My color schemes - 18/02/19 06:56 PM
No. At least not right now, you can copy it over if you want but this is all time wasting bs to me.
I started with 3-4 of them just because I got tired I couldn't find anything else other than .mts themes online and schemes are just so easy to make. I don't even create a pastebin account with the same link because I don't care to manage that account. Khaled could give the permission to modify the first post or cleaning is just a small price to pay.
Posted By: eahm Re: My color schemes - 04/03/19 09:48 PM
Some updates in the Tempesta and the official Placid Hues, made a n2 on that one with a more readable yellow.
Posted By: eahm Re: My color schemes - 09/03/19 09:13 AM
Added Zenburn with white and light gray color for Normal and Own text.
Posted By: eahm Re: My color schemes - 30/05/19 02:14 AM
4 more themes, mIRC BlackGray, mIRC BlackGrayGr, mIRC ClassicGray and mIRC ClassicGray Gr. Enjoy guys.
Posted By: eahm Re: My color schemes - 06/06/19 04:07 AM
New themes based on https://github.com/ayu-theme/ayu-colors#colors

[Linked Image from i.imgur.com]

Ayu Mirage, Ayu Dark and Ayu Light use those palettes from the website.

Ayu MirageDark = Ayu Mirage + Ayu Dark Background

Ayu MirageBlack = Ayu Mirage + Black Background

Ayu DarkBlack = Ayu Dark + Black Background

Enjoy guys, I think Ayu MirageDark is my best theme yet.
Posted By: eahm Re: My color schemes - 17/06/19 09:35 PM
Made five variation of Ayu with "GrEvents" to enhance the chats visibility, in gray now the following events: Join, Kick, Mode, Nick, Part and Quit.
Posted By: eahm Re: My color schemes - 19/06/19 07:01 PM
Ok guys, hopefully this will cover everybody and hopefully it will be the last update... unless someone finds a theme that we absolutely must add smile

I've added GrEvents to all the themes, I think it makes all of them so much more readable.

Enjoy.

I wanted to make this one for a while and a link I saw last week reminded my of it, Neka from https://dribbble.com/shots/2233166-Neka-Theme, https://aco-viewer.appspot.com/d1ec73d335a704717f39a988d97422a3. He's also the creator of the Ayu theme https://github.com/dempfi.

Since there are not enough colors I've mixed it with "mIRC Black".

Thanks for you work!
Would you consider assembling all your themes into a single GIT repository? Ideally, with screenshots.
Posted By: eahm Re: My color schemes - 06/08/19 05:57 AM
No, not right now at least. First of all I don't like to create accounts anywhere, I am very busy keeping my things (work) very tidy and organized and it would take a long time for something that's a 2 mins job to load on mIRC and go through all the themes. Maybe one day.

I posted some here few months ago: https://imgur.com/a/cHKyLCn

Exit mIRC. Then go to C:\Users\YourName\AppData\Roaming\mIRC\. Open up mirc.ini in a text editor.
Remove the [colors] and the data, same with [palettes]. Copy all the information in the pastebin. Paste exactly where you had [colors] and [palettes] and save.
Run mIRC and click on the color button and select a theme.
Posted By: Epic Re: My color schemes - 30/05/21 06:40 PM
This is done quite simply:

   1.Close (Exit) your mIRC client completely.
   2.Find in the root folder of the mIRC client (where you have it installed) a file with the name "mirc.ini" (make a copy for return).
   3.Open the original file "mirc.ini" in a text editor.
   4.Find the lines "[colors]" and "[palettes]".
   5.Edit under them lines below by adding new lines with color schemes to them. The main thing is to follow the sequence of line numbering "n0,n1,n2,n3...". Then save the update.
   6.Run the mIRC client and check the changes by clicking the "Colors" button on the top toolbar.
   7.You can now select new color schemes from the ones you added.

You can also replace all of them, the original ones from mIRC are left in there untouched as well.
