Making new theme - System freezing
« on: January 11, 2010, 10:57:52 pm »
Hi,

I'm finished making a new "black-grey" theme. It looks rather nice... however I have discovered something rather strange. When I scroll to "System Settings" or the other end options, like "Games", the system freezes. It's rather odd. Here is some information on how I made the theme:

-Replaced all icons with custom icons.
-Used the same pixel size, and same PNG format.
-I left the smaller menu item icons, like "emulators" the same.
-Changed wallpaper, USB, and battery charging screens. All the same size and formats.

Any suggestions on what could be wrong?

BTW: I could upload my theme so you can experiment with it.

I've seen that happen. In my case, it was a missing/corrupt PNG file. Have you tried re-copying your updated icons to internal memory?

Here you go. Extract the archive, and use the RES folder. Make sure to select theme A.

I notice that your *_small.png images are 48x48 instead of 64x64 -- it's possible that this is the cause.

As you can see in the following properties dialogues, yours:


mine:


So it might be that the menu is having a problem rendering the 48x48 icons at 64x64 as they should be

Sorry about that. I had 64x64 pictures on the large, and 48x48 on the small, but I changed it because I thought the images were maybe too big. So both ways, I still had the problem. :(

Edit: Wait... is small supposed to be 64x64? Thats not how my default icons were... :O

On themes I've made and used I had 64x64 for big and small. If you want to make the icon go smaller, just decrease its size within the canvas  ;)

That fixed it! :D

All icons are now 64x64. Will add finishing touches to the theme, and will publish soon.  ;)
