Very nice. I'll definitely be checking this out to see what all they changed/made better/made more convenient. I'm also interested in that custom home theme. Should lead to some interesting L style themes, maybe a U, or at least an __ .
Ok so I am trying to make a "bottom dock" style theme and I'm trying to figure out how to put the text of each application buttons on top of the application icon, and make it fade in / out like the default TMO theme on an 8320.
Anyone figure out how to make a bottom dock theme yet? I've been at it for hours and it's driving me crazy!
Downloaded and tested...few questions
Yup, downloaded it it works great made 1 theme which i am presently using...very good stuff...
as the days pass i will post questions etc and prob even put up a theme.
lookin forward to the theme gurus to be making some serious stuff
so ... is anyone wondering why the choices for themes are only 320x240 or 240x260
what about the bold?
So far I like the new Plazmic but I wish it had the option to change what the video camera icon looks like. I don't know why you can only change the voice recorder icon and not the video camera one.
did anyone notice you can change the metadata? to your own name/website instead of it saying 'plazmic' very cool
go to edit>preferences and choose the metadata tab

Oh and I figured out my bottom docking issue... Position your icons where you want them, and turn off the "show text" for each icon. You can set an icon affect if you wish. When you are done, then click on the "Homescreen text" at the very top of the application.
You should get a text box that reads "Application Name". Position this above your icons. When you save / load theme, as you move across your icons, it will fade in / out of the application title (same as the default TMO theme for this device), which is what I was looking to make...
There is a way to export the Custom themes to other OS's now!

Anybody figure out a way to put 3rd party app icons on the homescreen yet? I have heard that when you do a custom theme that the only icons you can use are the default ones that came with the OS?
other OS as in other versions? or other OS as in symbian wmo etc

I'm having a problem when I try to make an L theme. When I position the icons in shape of an L. It only scrolls from top to bottom to right. And on the L theme you can scroll right even if you on top and it will go striaght to the bottom. Why is that? Can some one help with that. ~via BB 8320(wap.pinstack.com)~
I'm new to theme building on the BB but I'm trying to get started by creating themes for the 8120 on 4.5
Acording to Plazmic's Website:
The system requirements are as follows. I'm good on all of this --**EXCEPT**-- I don't know which Device/email simulator to use for the 8120 (Tmo)
Can anyone please let me know which it the correct version to use? I can't find the 8120 listed on any of them.
Thanks in advance!!
