[Theme]  Minions 
« on: August 31, 2015, 02:26:17 PM »
Hello everyone,

Miniooooooooooooooooooons… who doesn’t like them? lol  :D
Feel free to comment or just say something if you like it, it’s always nice to know your opinion :)

As always it’s a 1920x1080 resolution theme for Chameleon bootloader.
There's also a folder with LOTS of alternative icons if you have other OS/Drives, just check it.

You may wish to edit the "org.chameleon.Boot.plist" to turn off the "Boot Banner" and the "Legacy Logo" :)

The thumb and preview images were taken with a phone camera, so they are not accurate... sorry  :( ...final result is better, just download and try, it doesn’t hurt ;)

As always I like to thank Blackosx, CosmosCj, Enzo, rzooff, kexlam, xenatt, DMAUTOS and many others for inspiration :)

PS- Please, forgive my english mistakes, as English is not my native language   :)

I'm testing all new themes right now and I have to say... Wow! This is great!  ;D

Congratulations rmf_z for creating a new look with this theme.
I love the way you have positioned a single device icon in the 'o'.

You are the man!  8)

Thank you very much for the kind words Blackosx :) They mean a lot coming from you, the theme guru, the man who wrote the theme creation manual ;D
I'm still exploring themes structure focusing much of the research in your themes and Enzo's, so yes working with the "o" means double the work, but i think the end result is better :)
I'm just glad you like them, and i hope that others like them too :)

Kind regards ;)

I notice the files sizes in this theme are enormous. You could use Photoshop's save for web option to optimise the .PNG images (as per the creating themes guide), but I have a little script I run which uses pngquant to optimise the images to 8-bit transparent .PNG files. Using this process I down-sized this theme from 59MB to 4.8MB.

Link and info for script and pngquant

It seems that you've read my mind :) I was about to ask you about that, indeed the files are becoming huge :)
But you're right, it is described in the manual (funny, i really don't know how i missed that) :)
Thank you very much for the info Blackosx :)
