i am about 90% done porting my theme over... still having those random rashing when clicking Open DVD Drive, weather and CopyDVD
Wow, your closer then me ....

i am probably never going to be able to troubleshoot these small issues on my own. i am probably just going to stick with FSD 2.2 for now. FSD 2.2 may take a little longer to load in the beginning, but I feel it loads the game list covers a lot faster.

My Metrostyle for F3: http://www.mediafire.com/?06i0bgdowba8b5b if anyone wants to take a look and help out on troubleshooting. It is a blue metro theme, but I couldnt get the blue Play DVD tab to be blue, but remedied by making the tab blue in customize skin settings

I would love to help u test/troubleshoot, etc... ;-) Will play with it tonight, after I install and see what crashes and doesnt. :-) I remember in FSD2 i had to ''hard code'' the xbox basics button color (the bottom half).
Thanks!!

i removed the xbox basics completely... it is essentially useless to me, and didnt like it, so i replaced with another useless tab, plugins Icon_smile. I am just used to it from the original metrostyle

RE: MetroStyle v3990
the crashes i found occurred randomly.. im not sure what the issue is. sometimes it will work fine, other times, it will crash, but can continue, and other times, a restart of F3 is needed

i never get crashes in FSD 2.2 so its a little frustrating.. id like to stay on F3 just for the ability to launch indie games without going through dashlaunch..... maybe someone knows how to code that feature for FSD 2.2 as a plugin. Icon_wink

RE: MetroStyle v3990
Looks nice. I actually like the slick look of the metrostyle.
But there is ohne thing bothering me with this theme:
The icons ... could you maybe resize them with photoshop to the correct size? They get resized by the themeengine itself and this looks horribly pixelated. And some graphics have the wrong aspect ratio ... looking at the controller image at the "Xbox Basics-Guide". Also the font is kinda ... bad. On my TV it's pretty hard to read. Maybe a bold version of the Segoe font would do a better job?

regards,
cyrex
