Title: 320x240 ice-cream sandwich styled theme
Post by: heming on July 01, 2015, 10:39:44 PM
Hi guys. This theme was originally made a few years ago. But I found the original forum (not forums.rockbox.org) closed my account cuz I wasn’t visiting often. Here is the link again and hope you guys enjoy it.

Looks nice and elegant.  Will download it.

Incidentally, is there a reason why themes like this can't be uploaded to the collection on this site?  I quite like knowing I can just download a load of themes in bulk whenever I install rockbox via the installer, as opposed to keeping track of where to get all the good ones if I ever lose my collection.

This Theme is great! I use it as my default theme. I just changed the font to 19-DejaVuSans-Bold and it is perfect for me.

But there is one thing that doesn't work for me: The Volume Bar in the WPS doesn't show up. It does in the Menus. I tried to use this theme in the simulator and the Volume Bar was also not working right there. I use the latest dev build, but had also problems with previous dev build.

Can somebody look at the theme code (maybe the author) please? http://pastebin.com/LW8s2ixy for the ICS.wps and http://pastebin.com/bFx1DHwn for the ICS.sbs.

If someone has a solution for this problem I am very happy.

Greetings,

Yes, the volume looks distorted in the simluator. The code for volume is the same in sbs and wps, so i'm not sure why it does not work in wps.

Fortunately the creator kept the alternative code for volume in wps, which does work! So you only have to change the comment (#) in the wps code to:

# Volume
%V(57,221,105,15,-)
%?pv<%xd(Ca)|%xd(Cb)|%xd(Cc)|%xd(Cd)|%xd(Ce)|%xd(Cf)|%xd(Cg)|%xd(Ch)|%xd(Ci)|%xd(Cj)>
#%pv(0,0,84,10,volume-320x240x16.bmp)

btw. I had to try it in the ipod video simulator because i do not have a 320x240 player :(.

Thanks for the reply Slogra, but I couldn't get the volume to show up properly in the WPS. I tried to change the comment as you suggested, but it won't work with the simulator or with my iPod.

The SBS looks fine though.

Any other suggestions?

I don't get it why the volume bar is not working.

Any ideas anyone?

On second thought: The alternative code needs an alternative image as well. It needs an image strip which must contain 10 states of the volume.

It seems to work for me, though I can't actually remember if I edited it to get it to work when I first downloaded it or if it just did so from the start!

The copy I am using has the volume control part thus (I have no idea if I changed it or of it was already like this!)

# Volume
%V(57,221,84,10,-)
#%?pv<%xd(Ca)|%xd(Cb)|%xd(Cc)|%xd(Cd)|%xd(Ce)|%xd(Cf)|%xd(Cg)|%xd(Ch)|%xd(Ci)|%xd(Cj)>
%pv(0,0,84,10,volume-320x240x16.bmp)

And the preload volume image is commented out also
#%xl(C,volume-320x240x16.bmp,0,0,10)

(I think maybe I changed the x and y dimensions to 84,10 instead of 105,15 - don't quite understand where the 105,15 come from as the volume strip is 84x10 and so is the area it goes in).  Or maybe its commenting out the preload line that makes the difference?

I applied this changes and I am so happy now that it works. Many thanks Frankenpod.

On the very remote off-chance that you are still around (and haven't abandoned rockbox for one of those new-fangled cleverphones that people use nowadays) is there any chance you could give permission to add a Creative Commons licence to this theme?

I modified it to make the colour scheme customisable in the rockbox menu (as in attached pics), but can't upload that version without the correct licence.  (OK, I also moved the play icon as personally I prefer it there to the middle of the cover art)

Applying the changes made the theme function properly for me as well. Really appreciate it as I like this one.
