I got hold of the background images in that theme. Just need a Logo and the Header BG. I'm not good at it though.

 

Does it include the current logo and header...? It's fine if it does, I just need a temp fix.

Don't forget to post it here with pictures, so everyone else can see it and download if they like.

Yeah. Also, it'd help if there was an archive of that theme from Wayback.

Yeah, I have already looked trying to find some, perhaps if you contact one of the Admins like STM they might have a copy of them.

You know, for reference if they were to port a similar skin to the new version.

That's a good idea, you should try and ask someone, Arch.

Alright, I am going to start posting my Updates on UserStyles.Org It means I can make the code longer and I wont have to worry about stretching out the page, it also means you can just view that page and if there has been any updates, just click on the button and it will update the script for you.

I decided to call it 'GTA Forums V2 - Nostalgia Theme' some might say that this is GTAF v1.5 but to most they will think this the V2 of the Forums.

 

Also if anyone installs Stylish and then clicks on the button that says 'Find styles for this site...' it will also show up for them.

BTW, I have updated the Script which is why I am posting it. There might have been more changes but I cant think of them, I'll post here every time I update the script.

 

v0.15
-- Changes
. Added some more Fixes to code that changes the buttons styles for some new buttons (eg. "Mark This Forum As Read").
. Added the more little addons by baguvix_wanrltw
. Cleaned Up the Formatting and Comments
. Also Uploaded This Version to 'userstyles.org' 'http://userstyles.or...me?r=1378563165'

 

Edit: I have gotten OLD GTAF V1 Quotes now Displaying Properly, the Style at the moment does not match 100%, but I am working on it.

Someone should come up with a skin to match the old style as soon as possible....... Why did they even change it?

Nice update guys, it now doesn't affect other sites I go on - which was weird.

Great work. But i think if this will ever become the default skin, it should be a bit more modern. For example, the brown background should be just brown, without those "scratches", just like the current theme.

I would die for a user style like this again, for my double vision.

For those who are interested I have made a User Script for GTA Forums that will remove that Right Side Bar from pages so you get a slightly wider GTA Forums, Enjoy.

Browser-Compatibility.png
You should have no trouble running this in any Browser that has a UserScripts addon, I have placed and linked below the UserScripts Addons for Browsers that I have successfully tested this Script in and will continue to hunt around the internet to find way to get this running on other browsers too. If you know of another way please do let me know of it.

~ Firefox -- Greasemonkey
~ Chrome -- Tampermonkey
~ Safari -- NinjaKit

Install-Script.png

 

(Tested With Firefox/Aurora)

 

I want to thankyou Almost, this script looks awesome, it just looks like a more slicker version of the old style!

Honestly, I don't give a crap about the new color scheme.

 

A forum's color is not in any way nostalgic for me.

I think the background needs some sort of a texture to it. Sort of like the New Tab background in Firefox - something to give it some depth. Other than that, I want a "return to top" button that follows your window like on the Eve Online forums.

My apologies for neglecting to reply to this thread. I will make sure to update the original post and title as soon as possible to advertise the classic theme available, and to instruct others on how to make their own themes.

Wow, thanks a lot ALMOST. I really love this, if you could only fix the space between replies and the navigation bar (original index) it'd be perfect. Perhaps adding the fancy borders around replies again?

I'm guessing that in time this will be perfected? Can't wait to get my San Andreas theme back. I was using it since the day I joined.
