Hi, I am working on a theme that is based on iLKke machines (extended).

After few revisions here is the final version...
If you find any bug or some wierd behavior, or unreadable stuff like bright text on bright background and stuff like that please let me know so I can fix it.

Not a fan of the cramped menu and small edit/undo icons at the very top, but damn, the rest looks mighty fine :dance: Super clean icons and machine graphics.

Looking forward to use it once it's finished :dance:

I agree, those icons are realy small and that brings me to my first problem when themeing buzz.

When you go to full screen mode in buzz (Shift+Alt+Enter) it cuts 20px from the top, at least on my machine (Win 10). See the image.

If that menu was more than 20px when you go to the full screen mode it will show a part of that menu, and that is very distracting for me and ugly.
So I better don't see it at all in full screen mode than see menu cut in half.

Another sollution is to add 20px of empty space before everything, but than it looks wierd in normal window mode with that empty space.

I am thinking about this problem, and I hope I will come up with reasonable solution soon.

Since I never used xaml my code is messy, and I can't find where to find a lot of things I want to change so I would appreciate some help.
You have created a nice theme so far (imo).
I once asked Buzzer "iLKke" for help through the forum no reaction at all ... I wish you more luck.
Perhaps try to contact a Buzzer called "strobotone", he has made a great Buzztheme too and perhaps he is willing to help.
He was once very engaged in Buzztracker, but I haven't heard anything by him a long time ... .
I also have "hacked" a bit into the iLKke machines (extended) theme and it works for me except that at low monitor resolutions 1024x768 the menu of some machines is cut away (it doesn't flip into the opposite direction) and I cannot see all options. The only way is to place the machines at the top of the screen, then it works correctly.
Hope to see more of this theme-attempt by you ...

First of all thank you for your suggestions.

Here is a little update, I changed the machines look because on previous theme I forgot to make room for Midi input text and oversample.
Also, when master is muted there is muted master image now.

Great graphics!!
I liked the previous machines look, round corners was cool.
I have to disable skins because on some the text can't be read (like the polac skin).
A BIG thanks!! :dance: :dance: :dance:

I am glad my theme will be usable to someone besides me :lol:

Now... here it is, the look I had in my mind from the beginning.
I moved menu down so when in full screen everything is visible now, but I had to sacrifice top 20px so I made some unusable graphic just as placeholder when not in a full screen mode.

Wow, very nice design! :o

I like the highlights of the LEDs.

This should be the design of the 2018 buzz release ;)

Greetings

Shadows working! Great!
Last question. The midi and audioboxes, can they be moved or shrunk like in default theme so they don't take up an extra row?

I see... Unfortunately this kind of menu behaviour is not possible in this theme.
