Title: Theme: BlackRoad. 173px AlbumArt and lots of info [iPod 320x240]
Post by: countach on April 12, 2008, 03:40:09 PM
Hi everybody.

I was using this self modified theme since a long time ago, on a EvilG Build.
Then, I rewrote it for standard build, that was version 1. I's based in the Black Simple theme.

For this Version 2, all has been rewrote to be compatible with RB3.0 and the source is again fully documented.

Maybe it's not so much pretty in the first sight, but for me, it mades me the best rockbox experience, because:

- Uses large AlbumArt. (Up to 173 px)
- Despite the Art using quite big part of the screen, it still shows a lot of info. (Without those nasty scrolls)
- The font could be smaller, but I wanted to keep the reading ability when driving, for instance.
- In this V2, new features had been used to allow differents colors on the screen and font sizes.

Snapshots:

Enjoy!.

Great looking theme...

I'd love one without album art.

I like this theme as well, new to Rockbox, i'd like to know what line i would need to add to display the system time in your theme to 12 hour format. I've seen the page with the different tags, but i'm unsure as to where it would be placed in the necessary category.

Thanks for any help.

# DateTime
%V|177|0|143|24|1|777777|-|
%ar%ca, %ce/%cm/%cy  %cH:%cM

change to

# DateTime
%V|177|0|143|24|1|777777|-|
%ar%ca, %ce/%cm/%cy  %?cf<%cH:%cM|%cl:%cM %cP>

This line checks, if you have 12 hour clock enabled (Main Menu->System->Time & Date->Time Format) and then displays the time in this form:
hh:mm AM/PM. delete %cP if you don't wish to display AM/PM; change it to %cp if you wish am/pm displayed in small letters.
read about RTC here (http://www.rockbox.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/CustomWPS#Real_Time_Clock).

Thank you very much for this. Would this be a standard line for themes that display time in the 24 hour format?
Or is the code theme specific? In any event thanks again for the help.

You can use this line

%?cf<%cH:%cM|%cl:%cM %cP>

for every theme. just search for the %c tags in the corresponding wps file.
