 h1. MTS Themes 

 "MTS" stands for mIRC Theme Standard, which defines a set of events and some options/variables to allow modifying colors and text formatting. 

 The spec can be read at 

 AdiIRC uses a mix of the spec and some of it's own events/variables. 

 h2. Installing a MTS theme 

 MTS themes can be installed from the [[Themes_Dialog|Theme Manager]] which can be opened by going to Menubar -> File -> Themes or by typing the [[/themes]] command. 

 h2. How it works 

 AdiIRC will read the MTS theme file, then generate a script based on the format called "ThemeCache.ini" which will be visible in the Script Editor. 

 Changing a theme or applying a non MTS theme will overwrite or delete the "ThemeCache.ini" script.
