    81xx: UPDATE: pearl clear black theme revision 1

    Advertisement



    So i took in everyones suggestion and revised a big chunk of the pearl clear black theme..I completely overhauled the network and battery guages making their outlines more defined, the needle is larger and more visible, and lighting effects are based on signal and battery strength..i.e shift sensor grows brighter the more signal you have. I also fixed the transparent menu issue, so no more problems with menus in map apps or other apps. I also added some color to the scrolling menus and changed a few background pictures. I left the banner, mask,icons , and selectors alone...as was before.. a bunch of backgrounds resized from deviantart are included in the zip file>>>enjoy!!!

    thanks rw..in short on the signal meters, start your project BIG, i started those meters in adobe photoshop with a resolution of about 3000 x 300(not a typo) and than reduced them(devisable by 12 for battery, 9 for network) to there native sizes...they retain sharper edges that way...you'll have to play around with how thick you can make your lines and still be visible on the phone, because it is all relative to what resolution you start with. the final product of my guages had about 10 layers or so...the main guage was set to 100% transparency, the guage face was set to around 31%, and than i stepped transparencies for every tick on the guage to show progression when the needles moved. Telling you anything more than that would just be to tell you to learn photoshop...i am self taught myself, no training courses no schooling for this stuff...i'm a construction worker in all honesty...just crack it open and mess around and if you hit any stops along the way just ask for help , and if you already know photoshop than kick butt!

    ok, so do each of the sequential layers correspond to the different batt/signal levels, and if so is you lowest number the starting point... the meters were/are the only thing i havent tackled yet for themes I had created for my personal use... thanks again for the input

    Your today theme is awesome!! I have a few requests though, could you change browser, media, and options on the home screen to sms/mms, tasks, and browser? Also, when you view the icon list the top part of the "messages" icon from the home screen is still visible beneath the header, it is even more visible if that icon was highlighted when the menu button was pushed to go to the icon view. I hope this makes sense. Thanks for the theme.
