Author: Helena & Cory
Date Created: October 2011 for a partners theme battle.

Theme Preview:
Posted Image Click image for live preview

Side Notes: Creating a Halo based theme has been on our to-do list for a while now. The partners theme battle was a perfect opportunity to take on the challenge. We thought it would be a fun and different project and would also fill a void in the theme gallery. (There are some Halo skins, but no Halo themes.) Cory and I hope that we've produced something Halo fans will enjoy. We will also be releasing a non-Halo version in the near future for those that like the look of the theme but want a more generic space-station feel. Halo images are derived from Planet Renders, HaloWiki and various free-to-use wallpapers and promotional images sites.

[Note: December 2011: The non-Halo version of this theme, Structural is now available as an RDB exclusive theme: http://resources.zetaboards.com/topic/5130250/ ]

Special Features: The forum table scrolls over Halo-themed background images on the index, portal, and blog. Text areas feature randomly rotating Halo vehicle images, and users can choose to play the Halo theme music while surfing the board.

Installation Notes: For the theme to render properly, you must use the supplied image set. (Specifically, any images that have the rivets that connect them to the vertical pipes.)

Browser compatibility: Halo Wars has been tested in the latest FireFox, Opera, Chrome, and IE 9 and IE8. Older versions of IE are not supported at this time.

Awesome theme Cory and Helena :)

IMO the spoiler/quotes/code and select needs the border-radius removed, but other than that it's perfect :D

One of the best themed "themes" I've had the pleasure of looking at. Spot on design/graphics and coding make this one of my favorite themes (being a huge halo fan), great job to both of you :)

Thanks for the feedback everyone. :)

UnstoppableForce: You need to use the Halo forum markers that come with the zip file, they were made to work with the theme.

Thanks for the comments, all. :)

Please subscribe to the topic if you are using the theme so you are aware of any updates. Like this one:

We discovered that some portal code was overwritten, and a couple other minor fixes were made. If you have installed the theme previous to this post, please replace the current CSS and Layout.

Epic theme! I was just wondering, How'd you guys do the Start Music button? (Where you click on it and it opens up the music in a small little window)
