Title: Problem with FrejBjon's uniskin WPS theme
Post by: Tungsten on March 22, 2009, 03:43:37 PM
If you go to this link here http://www.rockbox.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/WpsIriverH100Graveyard#FrejBjon
It says "Updated on 2006-09-24: graphics should look correct now (non-inverted)" but there are still inverted. here's a screenshot of the files.

I downloaded both zip files and they are the same.
Also when i'm on the wps screen none of the smaller graphics display right, or at all.

iriver ihp-140
latest rockbox release (081223) with no configurations

can anyone replicate this? was the wrong link put up by mistake?

Rockbox WPS parsing code has changed quite a bit since 2006, there is no reason to believe that WPS should work out-of-the-box.
That WPS is in the graveyard because it was not released with a permissive license, which means modifications of it can not be distributed.
To fix it (for personal use) one would very much need to take it apart, see what it is attempting to do, and then basically rebuild it from scratch, unfortunately.

You can overwrite the font setting for any theme, either by manually editing the WPS file, or by loading the theme and then selecting a different font.
Size might be an issue, as the unicode font (last I looked) is not available in all sizes.

Check out rasher's awesome fontstats (http://rasher.dk/rockbox/fontstats/) to make your selection easier.

Would the "16-GNU-Unifont.bdf" font display japanese and korean etc. fonts at the same time in the wps?
Thats what im trying to do. Thanks soap for the link btw ;)

*edit: do you know where to download the 16-GNU-Unifont.bdf file?

Even better, you can get it already in Rockbox format in the font pack.  You can find it via the "extras" link.

Try the 14-Rockbox-Mix font - I think that may have Japanese and Korean support.
