I've seen some snapshots online of some very impressive Today screens, so I was wondering if there is a PC based software app that lets you design themes?

I'm kinda frusterated (Themegence didn't work at all for me, either desktop or web) so I wrote my own theme software.  It's still very beta, but it posts the portrait and landscape pics and changes (most) of the colors (anyone know where to set the start menu highlight color or navigation (top) bar left-right colors that doesn't involve using basehue?)  Anyway, it's nearing the point where other people might be able to use it. Is there interest, or do other products already meet people's needs (and if so, which ones?)

There are no other products. Themegence didn't work for me too and I've been searching for a theme editor for some time now.
There's definitely interest in this, if you're able to work on it. Smiley

I'd be very happy to have some help beta-testing...

What I have is a C# Windows Mobile app I call OmniaSwitch.  It looks in one of two directories for files it can use.  The portrait file ends in .opp, the landscape file ends in .opl, and there is a colors file that ends in .osc (The .opp and .opl are just renamed .jpgs) It shows a list of the files that it finds. You click on one, click the install button, and it installs the theme for you.  The color file is in plain text, so it's user-editable and uses some pre-defined color names, or the hex color values if not one of the names (all the names are in the text file).

It also allows installing the color files only, which lets you change the color scheme without affecting the pictures.

Eventually I'd like to have some sort of PC-based theme creator (I have started one, but  graphics programming is not my strong point). I'd also like to make it so that it can package the files as either a .tsk or a .cab file so you can store them and load them from anywhere you want.

If you're interested in helping me test this, I'd be grateful. Please reply to the topic so I know who you are!

Omnia Theme Switch has come quite a long ways. I should have a URL to download by Dec 1 2009, so please check back.  There's quite a lot to offer, but in fair warning there are still some bugs and difficulties, but it works great for me and I'm thinking it's ready for a limited beta-test release....


Omnia Theme Switch - Application on the Omnia to switch themes. Has a preview screen now, too.

Omnia Theme Creator - Small Windows-based Visual c# 2009 app to cut existing graphics to proper size for portrait / landscape format for Omnia (240x400)



Omnia Theme Studio - Windows-based wrapper program for OTC which allows simultaneous viewing of portrait and landscape images and Start Menu colors on images.


Some current drawbacks:
-- Uses a non-standard file format for files:  They're still .jpgs or .gifs or .pngs, but the programs look for .opp (omnia portrait file) and .opl (omnia landscape file) and .osc (Omnia Color file).  Not hard to make them by hand if you really wanted to, and very easy with the OT Creator and Studio (2-5 minutes from jpg on your PC to Portrait and Landscape theme on your Omnia).

-- Isn't currently compatible with standard .tsk files.


Some nice touches:
-- OTS not only creates the themes, but if you have Omnia Theme Switch installed on the Omnia, it can send it to your Omnia and display it there.

-- Color file is standard text and can be edited at any time to alter color scheme.

-- I've got some themes I've already created and can be used as starting inspiration.

Future stuff:
-- Fix the bugs!  (I'm a developer, but this graphics stuff is Strange New World.  Although I'm happy to have gotten this far!)

-- Build a self-extracting version of the program - compiles to cab files, to install just double-click or start the cab files.  (I'm still learning about .cab files)

-- Adjust so program output is compatible with standard Theme software and the Today screen loader.


Let me know if you're interested so when I get it available I can let you know.
