1) You can change the names if you like, it's super duper easy to do. Not being dismissive, but I suggest you try.
2) I agree which is why I designed it with the logo. If I have time in the next couple weeks I might have a look at it. I wouldn't enlarge the logo as I feel it would look garish.
3) Sorry, I just disagree with this. Feel free to paint out the blue-ish color for your theme but I really prefer a black screen.
4) I did shuffle them and I like the volume and gain together. When music is playing it doesn't feel so offset with the play/pause icons visible. I have some ideas about this though, but again, I'm really, really busy right now. Unfortunately we can't brighten the color of the volume numbers next to the icon (unless someone else knows a way) but I have an idea to make it visually work. Again, busy.

Thanks for the input and I appreciate the feedback. But as mentioned before you can dive in and play with it your self if you're in a hurry. :wink:
All good, thanks for taking the time to have a read and respond. I'm not in a hurry by any means and all my points are just suggestions and nice to haves. Thanks for your hard work.

Thank you Carel and folks with feedback! It's appreciated

So you've taken something I was wanting to see with your theme and executed it in an even more creative manner; a main menu whose current selection is matched by the corresponding background image. Genius! I have only started the theme up now so have not given it a good test run in case there are any bugs. If I find any, I will let you know. Thanks again, that is the theme I am sticking with!

OK, so had a deeper dive. One thing I noticed is that there is one image you used twice, once in the Browse Files main menu, the other for the Now Playing screen where there is no artwork. I would personally suggest the one for the latter is modified to something different, maybe a piano or something. Benefit of segregating is a user like me who is now establishing where I am at based on images will be able to tell without potential for confusion. Hope I am making sense.

Very nice - thank you.
 
For the English version you could use the English only version of msyh.ttf. This saves over 20KB and makes it much quicker to load.
The only other thing I would change is to use @x RELIC x's battery in white to make a consistent top bar.
 
Edit: Using it a bit further I'm thinking this would work great on a touch screen.
How about adding an eighth option - I guess it would have to be blank or a duplicate - just to make the launcher symmetrical?
Oh... and it is not a good idea to have repeat play set in the default.ini - I quickly realised with this one, but an earlier theme left me confused as to why Unitopia sounded like Frankie Goes To Hollywood

Hi Hawaiibadboy
I want to give your theme a try but can’t get the file to work, tried “Express Zip” and “Win Rar” but no joy, advice would be much appreciated. Have no probs using the files others have posted. Look forward to giving your theme a try once I’m sorted......looks cool!

  Sorry I'm quite naive when it comes to files etc....how do i get this to work, I have tried to drag and drop onto the card with and without extraction but no joy, any help greatly appreciated cheers.

 
Drag and drop the x5.fw onto TF1 SD card, hold the top left button and turn it on, it should update.
This information is also in the first post of the thread~

Just another thanks to those putting time into these mods. Rocking with Plasma right now but tempted by several - they are all looking good. Fiio must be happy with the fanbase doing great things here. All in all this is a great product for the price, something Fiio has excelled at. You guys are putting icing on a very fine cake - it's appreciated.

I have no difficulties updating firmware and i know the process of doing so, it's only this one theme file I'm having difficulties with.I've managed to try all the other themes without any problems. All other files I extract unpack and they are fine to go but with this file doesn't matter what I try no luck. ... Help Cheers.
