News December 27th 2010

For all MaxSense Users if any are left. ;) I uploaded some Holiday Backgrounds and two new Tab Launchers. Check them out and let me know if you need any other Colors. Happy Holidays and great start into the new Year.

News December 14th 2010

Its been almost 3 Month since my last update. Anyone has some input on what MaxSense ROMs besides EnergyROM is still available? Any Cooks out there still releasing new Builds? Unfortunately it seems MaxSense will not get any updates itself for now but atleast v1.05 is available as a CAB File to be added to Standard Sense 2.5 Builds. I promise to update some of the works here before the year is over.

Great News a new Theme has been published. This time its a Buuf Theme for MaxSense courtesy of Orhtun01 and the VGA Version custom fitted by Ceesheim. Check it out below. (CDC Thread has reached over 65'000 hits)

News 27th Juli 2010

So far no News for today. One thing that has been on my mind over the past couple of days was donations. If you like our themes and use them daily you might consider a small donation. If so please donate to XDA-Developers.com for providing the playgrounds or head on over to the MaxSense Thread and donate to maxycy for the new Toy. ;) (Over 45'000 hits)

News 26th Juli 2010

Ok I finaly got done with some projects and was able to publish and change a couple things. Check out the Droid X Addon and also the Design FAQ Part 1 PDF. Also Orhtun01 has published some of his work. Enjoy and check back often for updates. (Over 40'000 hits)

News 20th Juli 2010

Eventhough there have not been too many changes the in last couple of days, we already got over 30'000 hits. Thanks for checking back often and I promise there are new things on the way. Just a reminder if you have some graphical talent feel free to publish some of your ideas. We can help you package it up if that would be a problem.​

News 16th Juli 2010

As we wait for the cooks to get v1.05 brewed up, we developed the themes a little further. I updated the Poker Theme to make it a little more appealing and Ceesheim has converted two of BiGnAdAd's themes for the VGA Resolution. All in all a good day. Oh over 20'000 visitors and almost 700 downloads of BiGnAdAd's Windows 7 Theme. Hopefully this thread is helpfully and userfriendly designed. If you find any problems at all, let me know.​

Great thread! Thanks for your initiative.

Now a 'beginners' question.. I've never edited a Manila theme layout before. Are there any differences between normal Manila and MaxSense? If not, I imagine the guides/help for the Manila Editor should suffice to start learning for editing MaxSense?

Cheers,
Jeroen

I will get more information up as soon as possible. Among other things a list of the MaxSense manila files and their attributes etc. If you follow the instructions above you should find your way around preaty quickly. The list will eventualy help you to keep a oversight about what is what and make life easier. Still allot to get posted and corrected yet, so keep checking back.

Here are my clocks.
The attached cab file will replace Clock 2 and Clock 3 of the original MaxSense.

Thanks for your contribution, made a entry under Clocks for your Post. Does that look ok for you or would you like to design your own. 90x90 Tile. If so just send it to me and I will put the border and effect on it and post it.

Would it be possible that you add the Images as attachment instead of inside the post? Or make a smaller preview image and link to the big one. Makes the Post more readable and does not overhelm visitors. Plus pages load faster.

Thanks, hopefully others will follow your example.

nice thread bro, do you have any of the home screen icons laying around...I'm looking for something similar to the android, instead of the little white house, and the star icon.......maybe something like a grey or black grid?
