    I am trying to get my MM theme to work on BBv1.1, but MM v185 and v1.9.8.5 both give me errors about the theme control file missing or invalid. Would it be easier to just make this into an update.zip file? Of course, I am not sure how to do that yet. Any suggestions?

    Below is a link to my "MM" zip file. If someone can tell me whats wrong, that would be great. Or even fix it an upload the fixed copy so I can use and post it!

    I may see two issues. First the theme just needs zipped up with the files and not the theme folder. So the theme control file and the fremwork-res folder. Just zip them. Next is the theme control file has to have the exact same name as the zip file.

    I am abondoning the use of MetaMorph. Its useless. It never works, and keeps doing strange things, but never what it is supposed to. 1.9.8.5, or v1.8.5. Both are doing the same thing. I cant do the update.zip method, because I dont know how, so I guess when I make a theme, its mine, because I cant distribute it. Sorry guys. I tried.

    lol you must know how to use MM before you try to make a MM theme, If the pack is done right MM works everytime with out issues for me but I think alot of the problems with the new MM is the thm converter that people are using. I got a converter that I have tried to use a few times but have never got a theme to convert right.

    if you don't want to mess with MM, you could always just use root explorer to copy/paste the files. or terminal to overwrite them, but that may take a while..

    I think it was in another post, but someone suggested to use the update.zip method, and just replace the files that I modified with the ones in an update.zip theme file, and apply just like normal. That should work, right?

    And I have also heard that some people get FC's and other errors from changing images. :blink: How does that work? lol Its an image. If it has the same properties, image type, and dimentions as the original, there is no reason it should ever interfere with a program or systems ability to operate!
