I have spent a long time over on the throttle launcher forums learning how to code themes and am now ready to release my first full theme TLCARS.

For those that don't know it is based on the LCARS computer system from the Star Trek Universe.

Screenshots of both versions are available here.

[B]Dowloads are available from the throttle launcher site theme section

Will this theme work with the newest 1.19 version of TL?

Ok, first report:

The taskbar looks not very good, see screen shot of the home page.

The programs page is very hard to scroll, it overshoots always and one has to scroll up and down to get to the program. One can only scroll over the program tabs and also to stop scrolling, so it is very often the case that a program is unwanted launched. It would be better if there was the possibility to scroll on the side of the program tabs.

On the other pages the regular windows taskbar is shown.

That is all for the moment... i am still playing with it. I love the look of this theme, really. Thanks for this.

thanks for the fb - the artifacts could be a result of the rom you are using. i have had that appear once or twice since upgrading to 6.5 but it does tend to disappear?

Yes you were right, it has disappeared now.
I sense a bigger battery drain, but i am not sure if it is due to TL itself.
Also i think the sliding from one page to the next or the opening of a page through the buttons could be a bit faster.
Otherwise this theme just rocks.

Are you DaceC?

This theme is amazing and your best work, I tested on my Imagio and it works very good.

I always recommend to use Standalone mode with TL instead of plugin today, it works better.

congratulations!!

Yes I am DaveC ironically I hadn't intended to get so involved with TL when I registered so decided to use mix up my name. Now im stuck with two names.

I have never actually tried standalone mode - will have to give it a go.
