I'm working on a "Dark" color scheme based around this color palette.
I'll post the WIP .xml and screenshots ASAP so y'all can see it and someone can test it with the views I don't use.

Edit:
Ok, here's what I've got so far. It's just some tweaking of the default file, any/everything is subject to change.

Code:
<colors>

Sorry for the double post, but here are screenshots. The code is the same as what's posted before.

Also, it's probably just my display, but these screenshots seem dark :/

I've downloaded several of these color changes (excellent work, everyone) but I must be doing something wrong with them.

I can select the color theme but the only thing that changes on the skin is the font color; the background is still solid white. How do I make ALL the color changes take effect?

Thanks.

I think you've answered your own question there then - the colours are for Alaska, there's been some major changes to Revisited so I guess they won't work now.

Panasonic 50V10 , 360 Elite, Astro A40s, Senn HD595s, Acer Revo R3610 (XBMC Alaska), Denon 1800BD, Denon 2309, Monitor Audio Bronze, SKY+HD (1TB), Harmony One, QED HDMI, Silver Anniversary XT, Soundstyle ST310, Sony AR51SU, Panasonic LX3, HTC Desire.

Yes, I played around with updating my 'Dark' color scheme, but the background color no longer seems to be controlled the same way, an xml file in the colors dir. (Can Hitcher confirm this?) There's not a whole lot you can change while still keeping the white background, so that's why you're not seeing Alaska Revisited color files.

kin0kin's post in the Revisited thread may be of use:

kin0kin Wrote:Color Customization
For those who migrated from the original Alaska and are wondering how the heck to change the color for the background, here's what you need to do:


The background is controlled by four files in:
media/filters

home_vignette = Only applies in home/settings.
*creates a vignetting around the borders. Center focus is the selected icon

list_vignette = Only shows up in list view
*i.e. when you select a file/source
*i.e. when you select a music track/movie/tv series

musicwall_vignette = Only shows up in Music - Wall view
*Shows focus on selected album. Vignettes the rest.
*I personally prefer to just completely remove this so that I could get a better view of the complete wall.

If you decide to remote musicwall_vignette, you probably will also want to remove media/wall/musicwallmatte which is the overlay for unfocused albums

filter.png = Pretty much the background that you see throughout the whole skin

Hello . i downloaded the stencil theme by Juanflaco but sadly the icons remained the same (the alaska / xbmc default ones) .

Any idea of what i could do to fix this ? i extracted stencil.xml into colors folder inside the alaska.skin folder and stencil.xpr into the media folder inside alaska.skin aswell , thanks , the theme loaded fine and the color , only issue is missing the icons .

(ok the icons work in home 2 , just not 1 or 3 , but don't think 3 was supposed to work , just 1 and 2 , would like to get home 1 to work still as it's my favorite one , home 2 has some extra stuff such as favorites etc that i don't need)

running latest nightly build for soe more info Smile

also the background seems to be missing , only shows the icon , the background is just a solid color instead of textured like in the screenshots , i'm guessing it simply doesn't work with the latest builds ? sorry for asking about all this problems but would really like to get this theme working Smile , thanks
