As a math guy I have a problem with the dB as well, with the way it is set up you are saying the volume is 100% 10% 1% .1% .01% .001% .0001% of the max volume, and I would doubt that it drops like that I think it is more like 100% 83% 67% 50% 33% 17% 0% or 100% 86% 72% 58% 44% 30% 14% or if you like dB -0 -1 -2 -3 -4 -5 -6 because -3db is half

ok I have been reading more about sound dB which is way different than the Power dB as I was taught. It appears with sound 10 dB is equal to double (or halved in the negative case) which makes the % 100 50 25 12.5 6.3 3.1 1.6

in my eyes the default volumebar in night don't look like night at all so i thought of making a one with a more night feel. here is what i came up with.

[Image: vol.gif]


files changed is
  • DialogVolumeBar.xml
    NEW
  • volume/mute.png
  • volume/vol1.png
  • volume/vol2.png
  • volume/vol3.png
  • volume/vol4.png
  • volume/vol5.png
  • volume/vol6.png
  • volume/vol7.png
  • volume/volume.png

what you need to do
  • extract the zip in skin.night folder and overwrite existing files.

download [updated: 2010-08-29]

maybe someone else likes this setup. tell me what u think and if u want something changed. however i'm a total n00b in this coding so u probably know howto better then me.

hey thanks for this it really goes well with the skin. I was used to the old one not the look i hated it but the volume progress bar. If i was to press button once i would see it change. but with this you have set certain volume to show show one cirlce and so on.. What my point is if u make the circles 50% smaller, double them then it would be more responsive..you would have to fiddle with the xml i tried to do it but my noobnes with programming would not allow me without some hours to figure it out. let me know i could help to photoshop the cirlces if you could edit the xml..
