RE: Remix 2.1
Here are some more detailsIcon_smile

Here is a Video Preview..

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zwjE_JR5sus

I have reduced the contrast on this video so its a little clearer and the camera i have used is just a digital camera so doesn't do the skin any justice..


New Features & Changes
  • Customisable title text
  • Background music (Tutorial to come on how to change this)
  • Customisable track name
  • Meet the Team and About FSD added to Utilities scene
  • New Font
  • Changed the Orb

The biggest change here is the Background Music.. the track provided for this is 'Clubbed To Death' It is possible to change this but based on the skin set-up this file is a WMV (video file) so replacing it is not as simple as changing the file.. I will provide a Tut in the next couple of days on how to change this and if requested can create the music file for anyone that's doesn't want to create it themselves..

This track name can then be changed by editing the MenuSettings.xml file this is also the same location where you can change the Main scene title..

Here is a sample of the code.

</tab>
<tab id='0' parentid='3' text='Clubbed to Death by Rob Dougan'>
<bkgvisual>2</bkgvisual>
<bkgindex>8</bkgindex>
<iconvisual>2</iconvisual>
<iconindex>22</iconindex>
<reflectvisual>2</reflectvisual>
<reflectindex>0</reflectindex>
<animstate>1</animstate>
<gradientstate>1</gradientstate>
<iconstate>1</iconstate>
<mtextcolor>0xFFEBEBEB</mtextcolor>
<rtextcolor>0xFFFFFFFF</rtextcolor>
</tab>
<tab id='1' parentid='3' text='FreeStyle Dash'>
<bkgvisual>2</bkgvisual>
<bkgindex>8</bkgindex>
<iconvisual>2</iconvisual>
<iconindex>22</iconindex>
<reflectvisual>2</reflectvisual>
<reflectindex>0</reflectindex>
<animstate>1</animstate>
<gradientstate>1</gradientstate>
<iconstate>1</iconstate>
<mtextcolor>0xFFEBEBEB</mtextcolor>
<rtextcolor>0xFFFFFFFF</rtextcolor>

I have changed the status pop-ups on the Main scene to allow the weather and system status to be turned on independently..

Using the same feature of status Pop-ups i have added Meet the Team and About FSD to the Utilities scene..

The Orb has now been changed and is turned on by default you cannot turn this off as i have used the feature to do this to Enable/Disable the background music

Last but not least I have change the Font to 'JokerMan'

Here are some screen-shots

Main Scene (with custom title)

Utilities Scene

Customise Backdrop Scene (with enabled background music)

[Image: screenshot20110417172706765.png]

As before you can change the animations using the little app that GoodfellaKeyser kindly put together..

Remix Video Selector

Here is a pack of Backgrounds and Tabs i put together.

New Backgrounds & Tabs

Additionally here are the links to the old Backgrounds and Tabs

I really liked the old gamertag location much better as this makes the left side seem too cluttered.

~Enter something funny here~

Changing the font should be as simple as finding where it is located in the theme, renaming your new font to the same name and overwrite the existing one. The font is referenced in the .xui files a bit so the font name must remain the same unless you want to do a bit of editing to change the names... not worth it IMO.
