Perfect color for the Fuze blue ring? I wouldn't know....I have the blue ring disabled.

And I cannot believe you think that theme needs more info.... about every other theme I recommend, you say it has too much info!

Hey, that's creepy! In fact, I did, though more or less by accident, as I don't read this forum regularly. But bookmarked it a couple of month ago when I bought my Fuze and rockboxed it for the first time. So, first of all: Thanks a lot for the very positive feedback!

I usually dislike themes that clutter the Fuze's rather smallish screen with too much information (hence the name – K.I.S.S.). But I'm always open for suggestions. What do you think needs to be included?

"stretch a but", I don’t even know what that means. Sorry, not a native speaker.

Where does that say you didn't use my build?

Well les, the part where it says, "I figured it out on my own", lol. And also, the part where it says, "It made sense the more I read it."

@UV: Clear communication in this instance was a...FAIL.... lol Whatever, brotha. Just so glad it all worked out. That's all that counts

@Progweed: Indeed! What a coincidence. Stick around/come by more often. Lots of Fuze/RB users and we can be a vocal bunch

Some more thoughts on KISS: [again, very nice work Michael]...
- I appreciate your concept and agree - less is more oftentimes. Only thing I personally would like to see on your WPS screen is possibly the date on top next to the current time. And for sure the name of the playlist that is being played - under the bitrate would be fine, but scroll it if possible.

- For sure, under the secondary WPS screen, I personally want to see the current playlist and also the next track info. This would need a bit of reworking for your secondary WPS screen of course.

- I very much like your choice of colors for both the fonts and the icon/graphical elements. They will complement the Fuze blue ring very nicely.

- Your background choice is also very very nice and subtle. I would not change a thing here.

- If ambitious [what I meant by "stretching yourself a bit"], for sure come up with a consistent re-work of the normal RB menu GUI to match the rest of your theme.

Overall, really a very nice, very elegant and subtle theme. It could well be a top 2-3 fave for me as it is, but could likely be at the top for me with the suggestions above implemented somehow. My own current #1 theme is the WPS screen from Boselhack [though I am not crazy about the colors] or SpartanBlack, with the rest of the GUI coming from either FuzeRock2+ or Darkness.

However, those are only my personal suggestions/personal wishlist - ultimately, you are not trying to please me, but yourself. Whether you make any changes or not, your work is very much appreciated! And you have created a mighty fine RB theme for the Fuze.

Last question: what size is your album art display? 125x125px?

cheers and thank you again for your efforts,
-les

Oh, what a nice invitation. Well, we'll see...
(Seems there a lot of Americans here. I'd LOVE to visit New York someday.)

Adding the date would be trivial, but there is very little space left adjacent to the album cover, especially with 12-hour time format and AM/PM notation. I could…

- remove am/pm
- place the date below or above the current time (cluttering the screen a bit more)
- or choose a smaller font for date and time

Done. Added it below the playlist position counter.

Mhm, what do you mean by "secondary WPS screen"? The next track info is already there, alternating with the album's name.

I could certainly do that, though I wouldn't like to introduce graphical elements that take away space which is better used for menu items (imho). And for the moment I'm out of ideas… What do you think?

Thank you and no problem at all. I'm a bit of a perfectionist anyway.

@ Progweed...
I like this theme too....nice work! Great color choices.

Unlike most Americans, I would say not to bother with the AM/PM notification, as the 24-hour format is superior.

Thanks to you as well. I already saw that you mentioned it in the other thread.
(I nearly feel a bit embarrassed by all this unexpected praise; I'm really just dabbling around in Photoshop, it's not a big deal…)

Sure. We Europeans have known this for a looong time.

Quick comment: Agree! I exclusively use the 24 hour format on all my portable devices.

More later...

Haven't had it on too long, but have used it a lot since it's been on there. No problems here. Works like a charm.

Have only had it freeze a few times long ago but in the last 6 months I have not had really any issues at all. For the most part its pretty stable and very usable now.
