Attention: Have Some Paitence

Can I use your iTunes PAM theme in my PortableAppsSuite iPod Package? I will acknowledge you, and thank you?

Yep.

Of course.

But how bout I just add a Close button to it first... Blum

Cause I forgot it in the second version of my theme.

Want me to? Or you can? But I have no problem doing it.

And:

I was gonna try to change the blue and white bars in the applications area so it looks like each applications is a "song". I was gonna make the app name line up with the box colour. As well, is there anything else you'd like me to add? Or fix?

OH. AND!

If someone tells me how to make icons, I'll get on that. But for them to be genuine, I'd have to copy iTunes icons...(Mac/Apple)

I know there .ico files, but like, what size, etc? Just use the size of my existing ones?

EDIT: Actually, maybe making the bars for the applications line up might end up making them to big...?

Ouu.

I just thot. For your package. Change the words on the menu to iTunes style using a LOCALE file.

For example, instead of video, make it "Movies"

Instead of explore, make it "Browse".

I'll try to check out what else is different for you.

Options would probally be "Controls"

And I suppose documents could be "Playlists"...

Get more apps under options could be "iTunes Store"?

But then you'd have to change the link and stuff...

Umm, and Pictures would be "Photos".

Backup might be "Sync"?

And I think that covers all them cause search, music and help are the same.

Here...

I haven't put the close button on the old theme yet, but I made a new theme resembling the New iTunes library...you can download it here...The old one's nicer, but you can offer selection in your package.

Actually this one's nicer. It's cleaner.

I think I'll redo the old iTunes theme now. Any other requests or styles?

And.

I put a close button and re-did mt other version of it for the other version of iTunes.

You can download it here:

It's a little obvious the buttons were just pasted in on paint, but I really don't wanna edit it all, and I'm not too good in photoshop. [Which would take a while ayways].

In the end, it doesn't look that bad actually, so there's my two themes for you. Enjoy. Smile

LOCALE File.

Here's what I think the LOCALE file should be. If you're interested.

I'm not to sure about changing documents to playlists either.

[FORM_MAIN]
ICON_DOCUMENTS=Playlists
ICON_MUSIC=Music
ICON_PICTURES=Photos
ICON_VIDEOS=Movies
ICON_EXPLORE=Browse
ICON_BACKUP=Sync
ICON_OPTIONS=Controls
ICON_HELP=Help
ICON_SEARCH=Search
MENU_BACKUP=Backup Files
MENU_RESTORE=Restore From Backup
MENU_OPTIONS_SMALL_FONTS=Small Fonts
MENU_OPTIONS_LARGE_FONTS=Large Fonts
MENU_OPTIONS_ADD_APP=Install a New App
MENU_OPTIONS_REMOVE_APP=Remove an App
MENU_OPTIONS_REFRESH_ICONS=Refresh App Icons
MENU_OPTIONS_GET_APPS=Get More Apps...
MENU_SEARCH_DRIVE=Search Library
MENU_SEARCH_COMPUTER=Search This Computer
MENU_SEARCH_WEB=Search The Web

I also changed this drive to "Library".

You could also do something like "Get More Songs..." and link to the iTunes music store, but again, you would have to change the link.

Whoo.

That's alotta comments by just, "me".

If you could get back to me with the icons thing, I'd appreciate it, cause I could use the Browse "eye" for explore/browse, the regular icons for music, movies, etc. The iTunes folder for documents/playlists. An iPod picture for backup/sync.

Etc.

When...

Are you planning on releasing your suite, because I will properly crop out the play/next/back buttons in photoshop and make a new layer with them before you release your suite, just let me know, and I'll make my themes a little nicer.

That is OK

but I added a close button, but very crude to the theme, but send them to me anyway and the localization bits so I can modify them.

Oh, I have.

Another idea for your suite. You know, in iTunes, how there's a little checkbox beside each song...Wellll. I could ( or you could) make an icon of the little check box, and in your suite, replace the existing icon for the application in the PAM to the checkbox icon. Only problem is, it might be hard, and long. And if the user adds a new application, it would be the regular icon. But, neat idea I think.
