Making a NeXT theme is too hard?

In Sosumi, do your background and disabled widgets look the same? This only occurs in Carbon apps (10.1.1). I think it's just more noticeable in Iridium because the background widgets have a hint of color whereas the disabled ones are greyscale.

Nice sig, btw, but exactly WTF does it mean? <img src="graemlins/bugeye.gif" border="0" alt="[Skeptical]" />

could someone post links to all the apps and tools needed to make a theme for X? I've been wanting to start but I don't have all the tools.

Thanks

I just think people should be able to see what the controls do before a mouseover... It doesn't really matter though, since everybody who uses your theme knows what the buttons do already. I wonder how much Apple paid for the theme that is getting its ass kicked by your free replacement.

It looks cleaner.. I'm starting to really enjoy it. More people are using Aqua than using my theme.. so I doubt Aqua is getting it's ass kicked.

Sinewave, do you have any remedy for the problem I mentioned above? Are the text colors in Extras really ignored by Cocoa apps altogether? If so, that means I'm going to have to scrap some parts of Iridium in favor of colors that black text will better show up on. That's something I really was hoping I wouldn't have to do.

I am not sure as I haven't mess with text colors.

SFX, you are editing the colors with Theminator right? Whenever I edit text colors all apps are affected...

Hey Synotic, what ever happened to your NeXT theme? Did you ever start or finish it?

I'm not so sure Aqua is getting it's ass kicked by Sinewave's theme... I don't think either is better than the other, and popularity holds no water because millions of Aqua users have no idea you can 'theme' OS X at all. The only thing that Aqua has on Sinewave's creation is that it is original, whereas Platinum was not Sinewave's idea or anything. Both are very beautiful, one is just brighter and more visually stimulating, and not everyone wants that. I wonder which of the two took more effort to make, even though there's no way to know, really.

I am not sure what took more effort. While I am sure Aqua was probably in the making for a year or more... having to fit a GUI idea into Aqua's layout can be a problem. Something the people making Aqua didn't have to deal with.

I was just trying to pay a compliment to his work, but my compliment is apparently debatable. <img src="graemlins/hmmm.gif" border="0" alt="[Hmmm]" /> Never mind then.

i would want a different mouse busy animation - better: being able to convert animation into the correct site. i could do some toothed wheel-animation with lightwave or a clockwise ratating ring that works like a watch hand and looks a bit like a radar screen.. in transparent blue (or any clour) and rotating around the standard mouse pointer

I have yet to find where these are kept. I am betting it is hard coded. It probably wont be able to be changed unless some programming is involved.
