This is a revised/restyled version of the "Friskys Theme" by T. Kliemann (from April 2009),
which didn't work with release 3.7+.
Well, this one does and it also got a simple Base and FM Skin and some graphical improvements.
I really liked the Original Theme, but I changed some things for better readability and improved File/Tag/Playlist feedback.
These changes include:
- a darker background for better readability (white font) (now WPS and Base Skin use the same background image)
- removed the Hold/Charger icons
- added an additional "LED field" which displays: current audio codec, repeat mode, shuffle mode, Virtual LED (with tiny animation!), charge mode (blinking), hold mode
- interchanged current track info / playlist info (track info now on top)
- battery indicator improved: LEDs now with "half brightness", show voltage, battery time left, sleeptimer
- volume indicator improved: now shows current time/date and playback pitch
- show replaygain value/type (if enabled)
- removed remaining time in song (a progress bar should be enough IMO)
- overhauled track/artist/album info when no id3tag present
- added Base and FM Skin - shows the same battery/volume indicator and the progress bar (Tape Travel animation disabled here cause it's too slow in these skins)
- added %Sx tags where possible
The Theme needs Nimbus-14 and Nimbus-19 fonts (install the Rockbox font pack).
All bitmaps are 256-color, since skin RAM usage is already quite high...no problems detected.
There wasn't a proper license with the original, but since you have to agree to CC-BY-SA when uploading, it should be ok.
