Title: Help modifying a theme?
Post by: d_headshot on May 01, 2010, 10:34:16 AM
I like the interface of the "Art" theme but because I'm not currently using any album art, I'd like to modify it by putting more track info and centering the normal info. How do I do this?

I read those but the problem is that the one I want to modify doesn't have any info that looks like that. Where would I add my desired info in the picture below?

Um, you're looking at the wrong file. The file you need to modify is in .rockbox/wps and has a .wps extention (from the text of the file you have displayed, I can see that the file you need to modify is .rockbox/wps/art.wps). The file you have displayed in that image is the .cfg in .rockbox/themes and probably doesn't need to be modified.

This is getting very confusing for me since I've never done something like this before lol. All I'd like to change for the art thing is to remove the album art, remove the peak meter, and remove the now playing track and move it to the main part of the wps sreen so my new wps should look something like:


______________________________
*Top bar info
______________________________

                 Artist
                Album
               Track Title

     Year                     Codec
     Genre                   Bitrate (VBR)



-------------------------------------
        Track: 1/8      Disc: 1/2
 CT ==================== TL
                        TT
_________________________________
*Bottom Bar Info
_________________________________




Where CT is current playing time. TL is time left, and TT is total track time. The topmost and bottom bars that have volume, battery, time, and etc. info would still be the same as the original Art. I don't know when I can get around to fully play with this formatting but it will take me too long and I've already messed a lot of things up. Would somebody be able to modify the theme so it looks like that and then send me the wps or text file?
