Title: [New Theme] FreshOS - The most advanced theme for iPod Video 5th and later
Post by: yuuiko on September 15, 2020, 10:18:03 PM
FreshOS

(https://i.imgur.com/irmbTKs.jpg)

Goal: Make the most advanced modern-style Rockbox theme ever.
Features a clean, but sophisticated and considered design. It took lots of exploitation, "engineering",
and countless hours of work to get Rockbox to behave and look like this.

Finally a good font
The font used in this theme features a custom-made mix of Hiragino and San Francisco fonts.
The result is a clearly legible, well-anti-aliased look, with support for Japanese, Chinese and Unicode symbols.`

The hold switch has added functionality:
- Hold on the [While Playing Screen] to hide the song information and view artwork.
- Hold on the [Main Menu] to see a lock screen.
- Hold in the [Files] or [Database] menus to view what's Playing Next (avoid "hovering" over a list item that scrolls).

Install
FreshOS Requires Manual Installation
Due to the size of the theme (2mb), Rockbox's theme website doesn't want to accept it.
Therefore, Manual installation is required.

[DOWNLOAD THEME] (https://rebrand.ly/yuuiko-FreshOS)
Install instructions are included within the pack.

Support + FreshOS Plus
I would really appreciate your support at my patreon (https://www.patreon.com/yuuiko)!
I promise this theme will be worthy of your coins!

Patrons can access and download an extra file which enables:
- Removed support UI from the USB screen since you supported!
- Super smooth text scrolling
- Enhanced Backlight Behaviour
- Access my theme code with annotations

Patrons may also very possibly get more extras such as :whisper nudge nudge:
a possible light theme sometime in the near future, and maybe more themes too!

Looks amazing. I am looking forward to try this out. Will there also be  touch enabled theme?

For some reason the menu screen part won't work for me.

Comes out looking like the attached screenshot.  As if the SBS file is ignored.

Try installing it again, it seems to work for me...

Did you place all files in the correct places?

Yeah, just merged the folder.  No idea why it isn't working.  The context menu isn't working right either, though the WPS is. 

I always find it frustrating that neither the ipod nor the simulator gives any useful error messages, if there's any sort of problem they just 'don't work' with no more detailed information.

By the way, is the line in the SBS file
 %VB(0,0,176,132,-)
 correct?  Those numbers make me wonder if it's left over from a different resolution player, though I'm not sure what you are trying to do there, so maybe it's supposed to be that?

Hold Menu button.

No idea whats wrong with yours then, i've reinstalled the theme and also tried it on another pod, worked fine.

And also actually dunno why thats set to that number, forgotten by now.. Strange though as everything seems to work

Apologies, although it still refuses to work at all for me on the simulator, it does work on the actual ipod (which is the important thing!).
  It seems as if it takes a second or two to fully load and appear as it should, but once it does it works fine (and looks great).

(In fact on the simulator it's as if it gets 'stuck' incompletely-loaded, hence on that the menu screen is missing half of what should be there.  The simulator does occasionally behave differently to the actual ipod, I've noticed)
