Default BrowseThemeCE

Themes Browser
I have uploaded a Windows Mobile Theme Browser which will maybe useful to skinners and allows to see your themes collection easily, without using a huge and more complicated program as ThemeGenCE.
Download : BrowseThemeCE

Here is the help :

BrowseThemeCE.exe (Version 1.0)


- Choose English version by clicking on the flag.
  • At run, a new subfolder, BTExtractImg, in the same folder as the program.
  • A ListBox is filled with all Themes (Extension ‘.TSK’) found in the program folder.
  • Search folder may be changed by clicking on the Folder Selection button in the Toolbar.
  • By clicking on a theme in the ListBox, all Themes’ elements are extracted in BTExtractImg.
  • In this subfolder there are the 1 to 4 images of the theme, rebuilt INF file, built XML file and an INI file more synthetic and easier to understand.
  • Images are shown on the form (with theme specifications and the Hint shows image type - JPG, BMP, - and resolution). A click on images gives a real preview.
  • Evaluation of dominant hue in images by clicking on the « colors » button in the Toolbar.
  • Others theme specifications are shown on the form and may be seen in the 3 memos INF, XML and INI.
  • This program accepts « Drag and Drop » of a theme on the form. It also accepts option « Open with… ».

Default WVGA format

Thank you BenThon for this “friendly” program, now it’ s fast open the tsk files and to show what is inside.

I'm trying to create a skin like xperia pda (for my phone) so I dumped the tsk file (WVGA) from xperia rom ... but BrowseThemeCe can’t show this format (and also ThemeGenCe).

Any chance, in the future, for this?

Thanks for the TSK ! New ThemeGenCE Beta version (maybe released soon if it works) can do these themes now ! Are you sure they work on a WVGA PDA ?

The only difference I found with my own themes for this format is the folder of installation.

In the theme you sent me you have (which have specific keys) :
  1. [CEStrings]
    Appname = "XPERIA Silver"
    InstallDir = "%CE1%\%AppName%" ; (\Program Files\XPERIA Silver)
  2. [CEStrings]
    Appname = "XPERIA Black"
    InstallDir = "%CE1%\%AppName%" ; (\Program Files\XPERIA Black)
but in ThemeGenCE I still put the InstallDir in \Windows like this :
  1. [CEStrings]
    Appname = "Rubics"
    InstallDir = "%CE2%" ; (\Windows)
That is maybe the reason why my themes built with my beta version of ThemeGenCE did not work in Microsoft Emulator (and maybe on PDA ?)

This evening I will release a new version of BrowseThemeCE which can read such themes.

And maybe soon, if I have Beta Testers for themes for WVGA and WQVGA themes, a new release for ThemeGenCE...

I tried to find the xperia graphic files so I dumped this rom:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=407148.

I found the tsk files but, in the pc where I’m working, wincecabmanager is not installed ... so ...I tried your program and ...it did not work!
but…just for the moment ... I hope!
That is all! Bye!

A new version (version 1.1) is now available for the program BrowseThemeCE .

This version directly shows Standard Colors defined in the Theme and possibly Specific Colors : small icon beside color items.

Besides, and waiting for validation, this version allows WVGA and WQVGA theme exploration defined with specific files such as :

For WQVGA
stwater_240_400.gif
stwater_400_240.gif
tdywater_240_400.gif
tdywater_400_240.gif

For WVGA
stwater_480_800.gif
stwater_800_480.gif
tdywater_480_800.gif
tdywater_800_480.gif
Such themes would have been found in ROM, notably in XPERIA ...
A new version of ThemeGenCE already exists for such themes, but it requires Beta Testers validation.

DONATE TO ME
I hope your program also support sqvga (square screen) 320 x 320 and 240 x 240 for older ppc phones.

By the way, themeGenCE works for square screen, and I have generated a few themes using that.

Last but not least, thanks for developing the software. Wonderful I must say.
