Once I learned of the simulator, i was able to test the theme right in windows.
I would love your code for the volume and equalizer. I am not a fan of the -db thing anyways. I am not very good with the conditional type programming stuff. It took a bunch of playing around to figure out how things worked and the custom wps page on rockbox's website helped a lot too. I am much better at just making things look pretty.
Nice, I just started my next themes and they will be car day and night themes as well!
Very good info ! I have never used the rockbox theme editor will have to try it .
I had the same headache with unplugging and replugging ipod until I discovered the simulator lol
To start my theme you have to use rockbox 3.13 not the latest developer build nor the ssd build. just select day mode or night mode , you may have to clear the background manually in settings, I don’t remember – it has to be black. there are other configs ive included play with them if you like and to get everything back to normal just select day or night again. Hold down menu for bass and treble . when eq is on the screen shows slightly different info – this was done because rb stutters when eq is on same time as volume visualizers . the developers know about this and have no clue how to fix it.
The lower 20% of the volume also show the full scale of the line out volume. I came up with the headphone volume 100% scale using my ears so 25% 50% 75% 100% is actually what it “sounds” like and not what ipod decided is accurate.
When you take the headphone out or cut power it pauses automatically and tunrs off after 3 mins. Plug the headphones in or give it power again it resumes . power up , then it starts up on its own which is great for the car.
Some people say the wps is not pretty (that’s relative of course) but it is EXTREMELY functional and practical.
Let me know if any questions/comments.
You might want to Save your config settings before hitting day mode or night mode. enjoy!
