I have been working on several themes, but because I have limited time to work on them and it may be who knows when when I get them completed, I thought I’d just start a Mini-Theming thread for those who may be working themes but don’t have time to get a complete one out. And this might help others who do have time to work on themes to get some out faster, but if you use someone elses ideas, please make sure you give them credit.
This is for posting xmls, icons, etc. that are changes from other themes but that will work with current themes available. Also, if you have genre icons or backgrounds this might be a good place to post those things too.
Here’s a few of my changes:
Larger Music Cover Art: This will give you a larger cover art view when play music. Should work with any theme and will also automatically change the cover art for ablums played using a playlist.
UPDATE: This is an update of the music Play Album view (as shown above). This update includes a new lightbar, as well as a frame for the larger cover art. The lightbar is now wider and the song counter, favorite, and rating stars are now moved farther to the right and gives more room for longer song names. Give it a go, see what you think.
P.S. I will leave the link for the one above up for those that want that view.
Larger Thumbnail in Gallery View: This wil show a larger Thumbnail on the focused thumbnail. Also moves page count and left right arrows to the top and gets rid of the dashboard, fitler, etc. icons at the top. It also changes the postion of the metadata (it’s a slight change, mainly moves everything up and adds more lines for overview). If you use this with the Anodized theme, make sure you copy the new “video_browse_gallery_overlay.png” to the Gallery folder. This also fixes the issue with folder icons not showing up in the metadata plane (where the larger icon appears). Sorry, no fix for folder metadata, this is a firmware issue.
(UPDATE - 2-23-11) This has been updated to fix issue with rating and favorite icon in the wrong place.
(UPDATE AGAIN - 2-24-11) Fixed issue with “OVERVIEW” displaying incorrectly.
Animated Icons: These are replacement icons for the Anodized animated icons. If you use make sure that you modify the “inc_rv_home_menu_node.xml” to match the correct animation numbers as needed.
Weather Icons: This includes new weather icons, just copy the folder in the zip to the “image” folder.
Sorry for the terrible photo quality, I’ll try to get some better shots later.
