"CAMERA ALERT On - Off"

Will you be so kind to fill me in on this item please?

By the way, reallly nice job with the colours! I know how much effort you have put in to that since I have modded my own system in a similar way...

Here you go, OEM splash, OEM day, OEM col set1, modded darker sky, col set2 modded to OEM col set1, (blue/orange), modded nightmode, modded day/night text (all lang).

Ok.
Im sure this is just what you didnt want, ccfj1, a bunch of people asking you a bunch of arcane questions:
- in the factory V31 software, I used color set "2" which was the orange looking color set. I uploaded your colors yesterday and noticed after a few "settings" changes, that when I went to "day" mode it goes to color set "1", the blue color scheme. Can the "day" setting be made to the V31 color set #2?
- how do you swap the splash screens into the Navboot file? Ive read the threads, but they are not to my level. I can edit photos, and I can look at .gifs with navtweak, but I cant figure out how you swap a .gif in Navboot.
- It would be great if you or manormachine could publish a list of the files or names in Navtweak that correspond to the colors on the screen. You seem to have it down. Then people like me wouldnt bug you with crap like this.
- My one suggestion for your night profile: Make the night sky in perspective mode darker. I cant stand glare at night. Make it black with star dots and a moon (whatever), but keep the horizon haze. That would be ultimate (w/ the day color set #2).
Thanks again!

I don't mind, that's what forums are for spreading the info...

With the OEM setup, Colour set 1 is blue with an orange cursor and trim, colour set 2 is brown with an orange cursor and trim.

In my modded Image colour set 1 (day) remains untouched (OEM) and colour set 2 (night) is dark blue/black with a blue cursor and trim.

If you want the colour set for day and night to be the same (colour set 1, blue/orange) then use the one I uploaded for ashrafkh.

With the navboot open in navtweak, scroll to the splash image and then right hand click the mouse and select replace, this opens a popup and you the select the pic you want (have it ready to go, in a dir somewhere).

This is not as easy as you imagine, the colours do have title fields but they really don't mean much, 1 colour value could do more than one thing on screen so, it's a bit hit and miss, mapping the full colour list would take a long time and I just don't have it to spend on a mapping project, I just go with my gut.

I agree it would, however it's not possible to have 2 sky's, in an ideal world the navboot would be day/night from OEM and have 2 sky's but it only has one, so having modded the crappy 2nd colour set to "night" you have to use the same sky, so a compromise is a darker sky that works in both day and night.

Thanks again!
No problem and you're welcome.

Great info.
I guess what I was asking about the color sets is could I get your "night blue" and the factory "day orange"? In other words, putting your color set in the #1 color slot.
Thx

Ah I see, I agree i wanted to do the whole thing with the Blue/Blue (colour set 2) in the colour set 1 but for some reason navtweak changes to colour set 1 (wide) won't take, they just don't load.

You can have the blue/blue (blue night scheme) on the colour set 1 spilt screen but not wide, it's a real shame, monormachine has done it but he does not use navtweak, he did say that he will release his config tool, so hopefully it will be possible soon-ish.

As soon as I can I will be updating the whole look of the OS schemes and menus to the Blue/blue with blue cursors, I hate the orange, it looks so 1980's...

That would be really great I hope he will succeed doing this and if we need to support him in anyway.... ready to go!!!
