Aikon3 by juzmental Aikon3 by juzmental
*** Jan 6th 2005 - UPDATE ***

Thanks to eh?one Aikon3 now supports tabbed chatting! (big huge thanks).. eh?one had patched Aikon3 to have tabbed support and contacted me to see if he could release it, I said to send it on over and I'll make it an official release - so I've added his code and added the mediums he didn't add (cut & paste jobby by me) and decided I'd like to see the close/detach buttons on the tabs - so I've added a couple new image files with the new buttons in it (as part of the skin, no themes will be affected) and whammo - Aikon3 get's a feature that's been around since Trillian 2 pro! hehe..

So anyway, new this update are:

- Tabbed support!
- New online/offline/partially connected/away icons for the My Panel/Identity thing..

*** Jan 3rd 2005 - UPDATE ***

Just updated the file with a newer version that is nicer to Trillian 3. It's not perfect and hardly close to being finished, however I added:

- Icon support for the large/medium/small/tiny icons.
- A really basic MyPanel type thing like the default skin has. My online/offline/partial/away icons are really bad though.. :) It was a quicky to get this out before I go to bed tonight.

Those 2 things should mean the skin works properly in Trillian 3 - however IT DOES NOT HAVE PANEL SUPPORT. THIS MEANS NO VIDEO/WEBCAM SUPPORT yet.

It also DOESN'T support tabbed chatting yet.

And back to our regularly scheduled viewing.....

Aikon3 for Trillian Pro 2.01 (and now 3)

This is the final release version of Aikon3 for Trillian Pro. Trillian Pro version 2.01 beta 5 or higher is required for this to work correctly. YOU MUST HAVE BETA 5 OR HIGHER.

Aikon3 is the successor to Aikon2, originally released for Trillian in March, 2002. Aikon3 has been in development since late October 2003, and has undergone a detailed alpha and beta test phase during this time.

Aikon3 is loosely based on the look of a mobile/cellular phone or PDA, but has developed it's own style and feel that is now only limited by your own creative skills via the new theming feature.

This skin comes standard with 5 themes. 2 legacy themes (based on the 2 released themes for Aikon2) Blue and ClassicLCD. It also includes 3 new themes, Orange, A55, and Silver. Aikon3 can have themes added at any stage.

I would highly suggest you download and install The Configurator from here: [link] - it makes switching themes and editing your chat colours much much easier!

Aikon3 by ~juzmental is, without a doubt, the best Trillian Pro 2.xx skin available. It was based on the classic Aikon skin for previous versions of Trillian and has only gotten better. Best of all, it comes in various themes and has an "SDK" for making themes based off of it! ( Featured by jark )

Great to hear!

Aikon4 will make an appearance on Trillian Astra - and I'm probably going to do an astra version of Aikon3... :)

I missed using this skin since upgrading to 3 way back when. I'm happy to have finally found it again! Thx for all your hard work porting it over. :)
juzmental Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Aikon4 will follow in the future for Trillian Astra as well. :)

awesome, I was hoping he would update it to work with 3.0 :D
serial-x Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2006
I just downloaded this skin and i'm using it on my Trillian Pro 3.1 but i can't seem to get the icons working, i still have the little coloured default orbs that come with Trillian.

Is there a trick to change them?
rh1n0 Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2005
this really is the best skin out there i think... i like the blue one! :D
CAaronL Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2005
I have to echo the sentiment expressed by so many -- this is the best Trillian skin, and there isn't even another one even close, as far as I'm concerned. I love Trillian, but more specifically I love Trillian Pro + Aikon3.

I was wondering if another update of this wonderful skin is in the works. I'd love to see one with video support, because I do occasionally use the webcam feature, and would love to see support added in Aikon3.

Thanks again, and keep up the good work.

I like this skin. Just pushed it through The Configurator. My favorite is a55. But i would like to see red a55, with a dark red border and light red, maybe almost pinkish lcd. And I like the hide sound too!

best trillian skin ever, for sure!

i've used aikon for like a year and ahalf now, it owns :)

A really great skin with quite a bunch improvements from ai2, both graphically and function-wise. Sadly it also suffers what most followup programs do, it looks bloated and actually lost some good features. Most of the complaints are rather personal taste I guess, but feel free to read on if you care ;o.
Let's see. The buddylist. First look, wow. Classy and polished =D. But looking twice I noticed the icons at the top were replaced by text.. no biggie, but imo icons would have looked better layout-wise. What actually put a :( on my face was noticing that the bottom left button from ai2 to access the major functions was not there anymore. Urgh. I dunno about you, but I found having the settings right next to the (right aligned) IM icons quite handy. Where's the bloatedness I mentioned before? The IM windows.. whoa. Put an ai2 and ai3 window next to each other and match the size.. major waste of space, and imo really unnecessary. Everything in the dialoguebox at the top can be done with the icons already present in the window.. which (only top ones) are really huge and kinda stick out of the other design o_o.. Okay, it might be because you wanted to fit the buddyicon up there (again, I liked the ai2 method more X)), but still.. Lastly (yay, he's done with complaining!), the bottom of the window is rather big too.. the mesh looks nice and really fits on the buddylist with having a purpose, but I think the messagewindows themselves would be better off without it.
Whew, done! Like I said before, those are just personal preferences.. put them aside and you have probably the best trillianskin out right now.. keep up the good work >_- *coughaikon2.5cough* ;D

Killer. One problem- where are the other colored windows for 3? All I see is the greenish color...
dmsuperman Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2005
Finally a good looking skin, thanks a ton! :D
DJKree8ive Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2005
Awesome skin! My one question is: How do you not display the identity panel? In Whistler, I just right clicked Trillian, went to advanced options-layout and unchecked it. Thannks, and great job!
BigDogWeigand Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2005
Love your skins. I still using 2.013 due to issues with the latest T3. Any way of removing the tacky connected/disconnect box/window at the tippy top of the Contact list? Besides that, very nice skin.

Thank you so much for updating this! I simply CAN'T use another Trillian skin. Even if I try, it never lasts more than a few minutes because I always end up going back to good old Aikon. You've done a great job on this skin (and releasing the template pack for subsequent colour schemes) and I know all of us Trillian addicts who use this skin really appreciate all of your hard work on it.
oOSkunkieOo Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2005
Much appreciating you updating this skin some. I am satisifed tillyou get the chance to get out what you feel is a new version.


Hope your projects don't take up toomuch time from your family. I know how life can catch up with ya sometimes!

Best Wishes and Happy new Year!

Yep, it is planned.. I just need to get myself into gear and snatch some of that free time stuff that seems to be so rare lately.
klowne Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2004
ah its a very nice skin but the wonderful smilies from aikon2 seem to have gone for either some rather bizarre palm-pilot ones or the default trillian ones...
juzmental Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2004  Hobbyist Digital Artist
There are no new emoticons in Aikon3 purely because if I had to do a whole new set, then the skin still might not be released. So I elected to allow the skin to use Stixe emoticon packs, meaning you can add whichever smilies you want, assuming someone has made an emoticon pack for them..

So you could even add the aikon2 emoticons to Aikon3 without too much hassle, just knowing which files you need and what lines of code etc.

RC1, a little less stable? Hee hee. Shall I rephrase that for you. RC1 really bites. I had no issues with b5 at all, decided to install RC1 and have had nothing but problems. RC1 crashes every time I try to run it. If anyone knows of a way to get the b5 intstaller again, as mine has been deleted, please PM me.

Juzmental---EXCELLENT work on this skin. I used it with b5 and tried to use it with RC1. What problems would it have if installed in 2.0? I'd love to try out the new LCD theme for it.
juzmental Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2004  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Have you grabbed RC3 yet? Much stable, just like beta5 was, if not better..

I :+fev: Aikon2 so it seems fitting that I do the same with this. I have yet to install it but I am sure that I willl be great.
