Looks great, anyway to swap the Browse & Playing or are the menu positions hard coded?

:beerchug:

Just did a quick experiment. Seems like the order in the launcher.ini (coordinates) file is the order that they'll show up on the x3, so you could have any position/order you like. Of course if those are changed, then the text on the bg image will need to be changed too. I'd leave something like that to the individuals to change since that'll be up to personal preference.

If anybody has suggestions (or better, wants to tweak it themselves) feel free.

Enjoy.

Looks good. Will give a try. Guessing it's built on 2.14?

Yup 2.14 beta. Just upped some slight changes to fix font & spelling issues. Also removed the unpacked files for smaller size (didn't even realize that they were in the .7z)

post #109 of 676

how does one get this to work?

 

I have 2.14b on my x3, have downloaded this to the root of the sd card but there is nothing there to select as a theme???

 

cheers

unzip the file...copy the firmware to yr card...flash as usual...

post #111 of 676

many thanks, so is this the whole fw or just a theme? may explain my wrong doing if the whole fw

 

actually, it doesn't download as a zip, it states as ....

 

list view.7z

 

is that correct?

 

 

 

**edit**

 

try winzip:)

I use 7zip since it's completely free. I'm pretty sure winzip/winrar should handle the .7z files. If it is an issue for people I can switch to .zip in the future.

 

All mods end up as a complete firmware. The modding process involves unpacking the original firmware, changing gfx, etc., then repacking it.

Personally I have no problem if people want to unpack my UI mods and tweak away, but it's far more work for everyone if I just u/l'd the modded files instead of the whole firmware.

 

I also should've mentioned that all the other themes will be all buggered. They should still work, but any changes to the coordinate files are global across all themes, and the icons positions will still be in the same place as on my theme.

Is there any info on the release of a new version of the liteGUI.exe virtualisation tool?

I've asked both JamesFiiO and Joe Bloggs, but they don't seem to want to respond.

@CH23: Haven't heard anything. A GUI for modding the X5 interface would be especially nice, so you could drag n drop graphical elements instead of fiddling with coordinates in a text file...

I just think it takes a long time to update the firmware for every edit you make. What we had for the old X3 firmware was great.

I completely agree. Especially when it comes to moving icons around and such. So much easier to test on the computer like before.

 

Has anybody tested resizing the gfx? I remember earlier firmware was pretty picky about image sizes, but with my newest mods, I've been able to crop/shrink the gfx without any probs. Haven't tried going bigger yet.

Do you know if we can tweak the theme with the new X3 Firmware (3.0) ? Espacially can we still move the order of the items in the main menu ?

Yup, the firmware tools still works. In the firmware file there is a folder called coordinates. The controls the order and position of the menu icons.

Have fun and upload your results

Thank you ! I'll play with all this when I have some time (end of June or July). My priority was to switch the item in the main menu because I only use Folders and the item is to far (4 clicks) for me. I'm a little bit disapointed with the text interface of the UI 3.0 (coming from 2.0.5) mainly because I really liked the use of White/Gray to show the selection. Why? Because, even with the lower lightness, we can still see on wich file the "cursor" is. Now with all withe and two bar surrounding the selection, I loose this good UI trick. Will see if I can put it back.

Looking forward to a "Browse First" theme with a high contrast selector... I'll have to tinker a little with my limited skinning skills.
