    Ok I posted this somewhere else but maybe here would be ok too. I need help

    I have found some great pictures and of course I want to make them into icons for my first theme. EPL. I am using this software called gimp well because it is free. I follower the directions to a T from the blackberry site and some other sites that show how to make them transparent and what not. I then save the icon in a png format, try to add it with theme builder and what happens, IT LOOK LIKE $HIT!!! OMG I AM FRUSTRATED. I know I can do this but what am I doing wrong. I am referring back to the samples the give and some icons call for 48X36 and some other sites call for 30X30. I have tried everything but nothing seems to make my icons clear and smooth looking. I know that it can't be this hard. Any advise would be gratefully appreciated. Is it because of the pictures being in gif mode? Thanks!!

    That guide was for Plazmic 4.2. I'm not sure how helpful it will be with 4.5.

    I'm downloading 4.5 now. I hope to have at least one new theme done this weekend.

    When you start to install plasmic, if you are missing something it will tell you. I do belive it will also give a link to download what you need.

    It was a while ago so I don't quite remember.

    I am downloading now. Since I allready have 4.2 running. I do belive all I will need is jde 4.5

    Yeah, if you currently have 4.2 installed, getting 4.5 up should be a snap.

    I haven't had it yet. I just saw it was released earlier and thought I would give it a shot.

    Lol. I read here more than I do any other site. This site has a lot of action. I post on that "other site" because that is where I can help people. Crackberry users don't need much help. Some of the other sites do. Lol.

    As for the new theme builder... I was able to install it right besides the 4.2 version. I did install the 4.5 jde as well(first). I am sure it would have been required. I do belive I may need some newer 4.5 simulators as well.

    I was able to make a couple of themes though. Not as easy as I was hoping it was going to be. I thought it was going to have a little better user friendly ui. Oh well, I still did it. Hope to see some cools stuff in the weeks to come. Free of course. I'll show some of my later when I fine tune them. Must sleep now.

    So I was all excited to get going on some new themes, and became even more excited when I found the "custom" theme allows you to place the icons where ever you want on the home screen! You can add effects like bouncing icons! Even "cooler"! BUT, I can't figure out how if possible to allow the applications to be changed... Like on the Zen, where your first 5 end up on the home screen... I like having Google Maps, SMS and MMS, Jivetalk, Viigo, and my primary email on the home screen... Out of those, I can only have SMS and MMS on there... Any ideas? Am I missing something?

    Cody, the 4.5 jde is for? Is that for themes on phones running OS 4.5? I'm gonna be trying for 4.3 first as that's what I'm running if not, can I get a link directly to thr dl for it? I tried to install the email simulator and it said I needed 1.5 something or other but the page it went to had like 10 dl's!!

    "The necessary BlackBerry JDE components and MDS simulators are now packaged with the software making installation that much simpler and streamlined." Happy theme-ing. Is that really a verb? Well anyway. This is specifically for the inidividual who was inquiring about it. If this has already been addressed please ignore this post. The last time I tried to offered help I was basically told that I was being redundant. " I can be anything but never do I wish to be redundant."

    I wish I knew buddy. My install went flawlessly and I didn't have to download anything additional. If I had to guess I would say to download JDK 5.0 Update 16.


    On another note, here is the first theme I'm rockin' with Plazmic 4.5. The program still has some limitations I don't like, but overall it's a GREAT improvement.
