Okay - In that case, I have removed the logo and made one final amend which was to centre the bootprompt at the bottom of the screen. Job done and we have a completed theme  ;D   Nice working with you Enzo, and I can now leave you alone to continue work on your next 2 themes  ;)

@Zef - Here you go. Another final theme for adding to the repo (if you approve, of course)  :P

Likewise my friend. =)

I really hope that timeout screen device selection, as well as the second quality issue we found is fixed, would definitely help with one theme ;-).

Ola people :)

Blackosx, i can't open Mint.zip... anyone had problems unpacking it?

I promised some ramblings about the Default theme, but after thinking a bit there's not really much to ramble...
After reading your comments on the repo commits, i focused on the size of the device icons and i think
that's what's not pleasing my eye?!
I say this because i did saw the Default theme before i saw the Embed one and i immediately liked Embed; also,
the setting to show only 4 devices makes the theme more pleasing.
I did noticed this when we were testing the rollover themes; above a certain size, the icons take to much space
on my 1440x900 screen and break the sensation of space i get from Embed, for instance.

That's it...

Just tested extracting it, didn't work for me either... odd. It extracts to a .cpgz? file then that -> zip again, and then it went around in circles =P. Tried using Stuffit Expander and it gave me an error.

Hi Enzo, I have been looking in to the quality issue of the device_selection screen when compared to the timeout screen and have discovered it's to do with the buffer being passed to the blend function.

• drawDeviceList in gui.c passes gui.devicelist.pixmap
• countdown in options.c passes gui.screen.pixmap

If I change drawDeviceList in gui.c to pass gui.screen.pixmap to the blend function then the device graphic renders correctly. So we need to find out what's happening when blending with the gui.devicelist.pixmap.

Hi Azi, thanks for the feedback and yeah, I agree that space around the icons makes a difference to the overall effect. Hopefully setting max_devices to 4 will help with most resolutions, but in the end it's going to be best for the user to choose the best max_devices setting that suits their resolution.

Not sure what happend to the Mint theme archive, I've compressed it again and here it is :)
