Landscape is not supported because graphics will make it impossible to make it look good.
My target was to create a theme that's in balance with the WM interface and that gives it a more solid look.

Check out the YouTube video by Pocketnow!(outdated)

6-5 : Update! by Adamix
- Buttons reworked, now much bigger.
Download from here

23-1 : Update!
- QVGA and WQVGA Menu fixed
- Menu reworked
- Messagebox skinned
- Different arrows pivot


This is no Titanium theme, only the wallpaper is included.
Please post feedback, it helps me solve any problems!
The softkey buttons look a bit like the ones from Shadowline, because they're just nice!
I also want to thank m.carrol, I have learned much from him about changing colors in WM.
BTW Condor GT was my ROM line but I decided not to publish them. It will be the name for all my designing work.

As said, I've found a solution for the banding gradients. This will be used in the upcoming version.
Just a screenshot to show you the difference. It still looks bad on your PC screen but on your phone it definately looks much better!



See also the Wiki page which includes a little tutorial to making this.

i really like what you've done with the top carousel bar. looks sharp.

do you have any issues with how wm displays greyscale? bc it's 16 bit color, 5 bits go to red, 6 go to green and 5 go to blue, which ends up leaving you with some awkward-looking "bands" in what should be a smooth gradient. just curious...

Yeah I'm getting crazy of that issue, I've heard that the HD2 has more colors, but I don't have the money for it so...
But the colors still look pretty good, I didn't use dithering methods but maybe I'll do that in future.

Thanks, it's great to hear it worked perfect on a WVGA device! But how about the wallpaper, it must be streched or something like that?

Wallpaper doesn´t work on WVGA, as you posted.

QVGA Draft
Hello ElCondor,

Thanks for this theme, extraordinary nice.

I attached the QVGA Draft version, but this is very draft; I scale everything with 50%, but many 1pixel errors, especially in registry values.

Some screen shots, maybe not 100% like your VGA version ….

Please make one quality QVGA version.
Thanks in advance.

StruCon

UPDATE:
ElCondor released the QVGA version.
This QVGA Draft version and Screenshots are outdated.
