this right there.
the way the mods work:
a config file /xthemes/xthemes.ini tells the client what custom themes are installed, which directories to load the graphics from... , and which base PokerStars theme they use as a template.
the installer loads all the graphics and overwrites that base PokerStars theme with it's own template file if necessary
the client then loads this all up and you're off to the races.
if, however, you don't already have that base PokerStars theme installed then it just isn't going to work if the theme requires that theme's template.
so either a) the installer dumped in the template file which you later overwrote by installing via the PokerStars client or b) you made an installation with the client open and it didn't have a chance to load up all the correct settings.
either way, glad you're off to the races!
