Transparent iChat

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
I'm pretty sure that saw a screenshot somewhere on these forums recently of a modified iChat window, where the names list was transparent and the brushed metal was removed. I know that you can get an app to remove the brushed metal from almost any application's window, but I didn't know that you can make the iChat window transparent as well... Does anybody know how to make this work, or was I just imagining things? <img src="graemlins/bugeye.gif" border="0" alt="[Skeptical]" /> Thanks!

    The metal was likely removed with the metallifizer (or something like that) haxie. The transparency was probably done with the WindowShade X haxie.

    see <a href=""; target="_blank"></a> for details.

    I made myself a copy of iChat and went at it with Interface Builder, and discovered that it's very hard to get ALL the metal out. But I did manage to make Mail metal.
