Thanks for your feedback. I wasnt able to recreate your problem. But you must restart the app after creating a xzp, if you want to do another xzp. Or select the original xzp file again.

The code for background selection is here
'Custom background

It does a conversion/resizing:
objShell.Run "i_view32.exe " & Chr(34) & myFile & Chr(34) & " /resize=(1280,720) /resample /convert=" & Chr(34) & currentPath & "custom_bg.png" & Chr(34),0,True

You should see a custom_bg.png in your appdir. Then the conversion was successful. Otherwise it may have a problem with that file.

About the enhancements. I would have to know where that information is stored and if the items can be hidden. Otherwise a solution like gamelist/start tab. 2 xur files for the same scene.

FYI, I have problems with your customiser. I got error messages that came up after pressing Start and after I had selected a custom picture for the background and chosen a custom colour for the tabs. And then nothing happens.

It seems to work fine with cutom pictures for both background and tabs though and I could create a couple of .xzp.

EDIT: 2 nice-to-haves if you feel like doing some extra work Icon_smile
- would it be possible to have an option to remove the "wave" effect that is visible on the background? (it is not related to the original background since it's visible when you select a custom picture too)
- would it be possible to have an option to remove the FSD logo on the right bottom corner?

Thanks

RE: MetroStyle v3610 Multi5 Custom
Hey guys!!!

So heres a new version from me!

So far this should be seen as a preview for what is coming!
There are still bugs in it, especially the Custom-Skin scenes are need to be worked over (Buttons are visible where they shouldn't, lb & rb is doing strange stuff...Icon_wink). If anybody knows a fix for these things...PLEASE TELL ME!!

Take a look on it, and report your feelings about it Icon_smile

What changed/i added since last version:

- Tabs are now fully customizable IN Fsd, so no need for the customizer...since its a nice app! Much credit to it!
- Added new animations/videos for the big Scene-Tabs
- Partially translated to english


For the next version i will open up a new thread because i think this "mod" went way beyond i thought it would Icon_smile

D0WNL0AD V1.4

I like the new animations-videos in the big scene tabs.Very nice,something new I like is the way isnt longer need to use the customizer app because it can be customized from the Xbox Icon_cheesygrin. Waiting for the new fixes of the current bugs because there are still some ones.Icon_wink

That's strange that I'm the only one with this problem...
Again, the problem is I can't get to create an XZP when using a custom COLOUR. Custom background works fine.

EDIT : I'm confused... the problem is with 'custom colours' for the tabs (it's working with custom pictures...)
I restarted the app after each xzp I created.

Here is the error message I got today after reproducing the problem: each time I select a custom colour I got one of this message (whether I select a custom background or use the default one does not make a difference)
It says: An error occurred in the script of this page.
Error : Permission denied.
It asks if scripts should continue running (Yes) or be stopped (No). Whether I press Yes or No does not make a difference: nothing happens then...

Hope this helps.

RE: MetroStyle v3610 Multi5 Custom
If you look at your build_skin.hta file in C:\Program Files\Metrostyle Customizer

you'll find Line 1998:
Set objFile = objFSO.CreateTextFile(currentPath & "custom.pal")

The function is called CustomColorPal.
This function creates a file called custom.pal which contains the palette with the selected color, used to create patter_custom.png.

Custom background color uses the same function. It is unexplainable to me that it works with background and not with tabs.

It says permission denied. So, for an unknown reason custom.pal cannot be modified or created. I can do an internet search to verify what it could mean, but I'm not a programmer. Maybe you need to run the application as administrator.

RE: MetroStyle v3980 eng
thanks again for everyone updating their themes!

really liking both the idefix and freakazoid versions, i like the visualizations of the idefix one, but will be staying with freakazoids version because of the right thumbstick click info.

if freakazoid had the visualizations of the idefix version, ie the spickles that fly around the screen etc, that'd be awesome, but i rely on the right thumbstick menu daily so i cant use this (idefix's) theme Icon_sad

i also noticed alot of sounds were gone? i'm sure it will all be fixed and put into one or two updated polished versions but theres still bugs so i'll stick with the normal metrostyle theme

thanks to all the contributors, very nice work

RE: MetroStyle v3980 eng
First, the skin is just awesome and I use it since the beginning. Really great work, of all of you.

I have to agree with bmxhooligan, that I would love to see the idefix animations in the original skin. Maybe it could even be integrated in the Costumizer in some way?
Also it would be nice, if the costumizer could handle the idefix version too. Because I don't like the Segoe font very much and want the Games tab as start.




@ idefix23: I don't know if these are the bugs you mentioned in your previous post, but I found some I want to share:

> System Info:
- sometimes I'm stuck at the System Info-Center and can't get back to the other tabs. Not reproducable.
- Most of the info is just not working (Temperature, IP not shown, Storage)

> FSD crashes when opening the tray

> "Open tray" overlays Play <previously played game>

And a suggestion: I think it would be more comfortable to show the "Play <previously played game>" on all tabs, and not just the home one


@ freakazoid/GoodfellaKeyser: When building a skin with the most recent Customizer, only the chosen background is included (IMHO better due to smaller xzp). But when you then customize the skin within FSD, the other backgrounds are choosable, but off course not present in the xzp and some crazy inverted(?) background is set Icon_razz

These new versions are not compatible with Customizer v2 :-(
