Default Lcars002 [vp]

LCARS002 (Library Computer Access and Retrieval System)

Still experimenting with coding different kinds of data on screen.
No AA this time so more room for info. I made the graphics smaller to get maximum free space. The amount of data gives it a kinda geeky look...perfect for LCARS.
I also tried to get alot of things moving on screen...VU meter,scrolling texts,changing graphics make it look like a real working LCARS system.
Hope you like it.

Edit: Fonts Cleaned up

You've really captured LCARS with this version. If I weren't such an album-art fiend, I'd have to choose this over the first version for the utter trekkie-geekiness of it.

Hey, this theme looks awesome in your screen shot, but I'm having an issue getting it to look right on my Sansa e250. The main screen looks about the same as the screen shot, thought he font is a bit thinner (3 pixels wide per character), but the audio player screen still has the LCARS002 graphic in the lower right, and a plain yellow line drawing on black interface (looks like the voice recorder). I've got Rockbox r14975-071004. Any suggestions?

Edit: looks like LCARS001 is doing the same thing, but without the LCARS font.

Thanks, i registered just for downloading your theme!
Just got my Sansa e260 from ebay and instantly wanted to install your theme.
Great work man, great work!
When will lcars003 be released?
I just changed the font because i found the original Star Trek fonts don't look too great at the sizes provided (while I found the lcars001-font looks better on the small screen).

It's normal, I looked at the code and it still uses the old skin syntax as expected for an old 2008 theme.
Since release 3.7 (October 2010), there is a new skin syntax making any older theme incompatible.

In attachment you'll find an updated version. I first converted the old syntax to the new syntax with the skinupdater utility available here: and then I made some other necessary changes by hand. I tried it in the UI simulator and it works fine now.
However, I did not improve the way this theme has been coded. There have been lots of change in the theme engine since 2008 and ideally this theme should be rewritten from scratch. It's not optimized for the current skin engine at all.
