If I open and extract using 7zip I get lots of files that I can edit using Notepad++ or something similar, one assumes that this is what as meant by "un-jar"? One also assumes that if I zip it all up again this is the equivalent to "re-jar"? Now if I wasn't overwhelmed by the sheer number of places to look for colours I might be able to figure out how this all works.(07-17-2012, 02:23 PM)Timmythepirate Wrote: [ -> ]The intended color for the default Nightingale theme (to my knowledge) is supposed to be a copper color, but the theme is currently only available in blue. As far as testing your new theme you can un-jar and then re-jar the coppery.jar archive using the "jar" command. When you have a theme that you are happy with and want to post to the add-ons page, look at the existing themes and try figure out what you need to do. If you run into any issues feel free to ask for help.
I've no idea what that all that un-jar and re-jar stuff means. I'm on Windows 7 and have managed to find a file called coppery.jar in C:\program Files (x86)\Nightingale\chrome\coppery.jar. It seems to be in a plain text format as I can open and edit in Notepad++.
The file is littered with rgb(000,000,000) type references. I can probably figure out what colour the existing numbers relate to by googleing them. I assume that the copper colour that you refer to has a rgb number so it would be good to know what it is to get started, If there isn't one defined then I'll guess or try and work it out by dumping the icon into Gimp or some other editor.
