Help with changing theme text color

Postby therealjoeblow » Thu Dec 08, 2016 2:42 pm

I'm using the G-Monkey_PS theme and like it very much, but in a darker setting, the very white color of the text in all of the panels has too much contrast making it a bit difficult to read, and I would like to change it to something perhaps more like the Winamp Bento skin, which is a little darker blue/grey.

I read the skinning wiki and downloaded the skin editor and am at a loss to make what I thought would be a simple change like this.

Can someone please help me out?

Many thanks!

i have not done it in years. but i think i said how in my fast newbie walk through at the wiki site. not sure if i said how on your windows but i did write it as i was doing it in the skin editor so i should have put that in there too. 8)


no it was just a fast step by step how to get one changed image wise. you have to read the all text advanced lesson there.

from what i remember you have to use the editor and just click on the text in the middle of the menu to change the fonts and colors.
but windows did change what fonts can be changed so as to the ones in your issue they might not be allowed to be changed?
more detail in what window fonts you want changed will help others help you. 8)

Basically I want to change all of the fonts in the primary interface to a darker/lower contrast color:

IE, for the Music view, in the:

Artist pane
Album pane
Genre pane
The large panel with media details below that that shows Artist/Album/Title/Track/Length/Extension/Path/Bitrate/Etc...
Playlist pane

...Ideally for all of the screens available on the navigation tree at the left (now playing, music, classical music, podcast, audiobook, video, etc...)

Does that make more sense to you? Is there one simple font to change or are the multiple places that needs to be done?

Essentially, the VitreousDark skin has the font colors that I want in the G-Monkey_PS skin. I'm assuming there is no *simple* way to copy those over?

Many thanks!
