    Theme Creator App - [In Development] - May have more ?'s

    I need someone who has made a FULL theme, im talking everything (like the Vista Mobile theme)

    I have some questions... Im working on an app (toying with the idea a little)
    to make theme creation/editing easier...

    i have questions about some of the stranger things:

    like the slider on the lock screen
    -how to change it to make it a spot (tap) instead?
    -Dimensions for both slide/spot?
    -How to determine where it will show? is it centered? etc

    the battery in the upper right?
    where are those images? etc

    so many questions!! lol

    id like to be able to give the user a preview of things like the lock screen, and main screen with dock etc.. just need more info before i continue..

    thanks!

    Wrong section.
    How about you do the theme yourself. It isn't the most difficult thing to do it just take time.

    This is kinda related, when you make blank icons, do you just rename them? And which folder do you put them in through SSH?

    the small battery icon is Default_BatteryBG, Default_BatteryCharged, Default_BatteryCharging, Default_BatteryCharging, Default_BatteryInsides, Default_BatteryLowBG

    and the same again but with FSO instead of Default. They go in either the Folders\SpringBoard.app or \Bundles\com.apple.springboard.

    the slider backgrounds are bottombarbkgnd.png and bottonbarbkgndlock.png
    dimensions are 79x96. I think the knob is just drawn along the center line so it just has to fit withing the background but a standard one is 71x41 and its named bottombarknobgray for lock, green for answer, red for power off.

    I have no experience with tappers so i can't help you there. Honestly the way i teach myself is to find a theme with the types of things i want to change and personalize or redesign everything myself.

    Why don't you download one of those complete themes onto a computer, and learn through that as an example?

    I could easily just make a theme, i am trying to make an application to assist in making it!

    So, i need more of a "road map". I can figure out a lot from just looking at other themes, but some stuff is not easy to figure out just by looking at images....

    thanks

    To be honest, any one who needs assist in making a theme, really needs help. There are a couple complicated things, but not really.
