10.06.10 UPDATE – All versions have 75% black popups (see screenshot below). Update.zips have been added.
NOTE: If you were redirected here from the HeroC forum, it’s because I combined the threads since this theme/mod will benefit all users of LauncherPro.

EVERY WIDGET IN EVERY VERSION NOW USES S23_BG.9.PNG TO CONTROL THE WIDGET BACKGROUND. IF YOU WANT, YOU CAN EDIT THAT PNG AND IT WILL AFFECT EVERY WIDGET BG (EXCEPT FOR THE SMS CARD WIDGET, WHICH HAS IT’S OWN BG IMAGE).
You can find more information in the themes thread.
