Default Porting the rayboradio_OB theme to 240*320 targets

Hi everyone! I'm remaking a rayboradio theme for R0. But there are some difficulties cause it was made for 320x240 resolution(R0 has 240x320). I dont know how to place the elements better. Here what i've done:

So i've ran out of space. But there should one more element - next song. Don't know where to place it... Any ideas?
Also may be it will be better to align artist, album and song to center?
The original look of theme:

Hey,
I moved your post into a new thread, I think it's better than posting in my Samsung-like theme thread

It's a good idea! Finally another decent 240*320 theme is coming!

Personally I would center the album art, put the album date the line after the album name and then put the file bitrate instead of the playlist position. Don't know where I would then put the playlist position though^^ I would also add the now playing time/total track time like in the original theme.
I don't care at all about the next song.

Sorry, that doesn't exactly answer your question, that's just my idea

Keep it up!

Definitely, nice theme to have
For the volume bar I would create it either vertically or horizontally (but very cut, so not sure it will look fine). Perhaps having it that appears / disappears on rockbox logo or somewhere on the status bar...Idea! Make it showing in place of the song time bar when the user presses up/down keys

Thanks I thought this post don't deserve a new thread.
Yep, I think album art should be centered, too.
The image I posted is just a preview. Some elements are still missing such as a track time, volume meter and album,artist etc with no cover. Will be added soon. And background will be redrawn, cause volume meter fits out of the screen.
I'm trying to match the original theme as much as possible. I think the only thing that will be missed is the Crossfade icon(due to lack of space). And maybe Next track with cover.

Crossfade icon...useless
Next track with cover ... useless
What I think personally

Oh! Look there: http://themes.rockbox.org/index.php?themeid=672

btw, also this theme could be nice to port: http://themes.rockbox.org/index.php?themeid=1221

Thanks for your opinion
I like the theme you linked. Will try to port this after I finish rayboradio.
Btw, I have done some progress:

Mr.Frost, you do know about the Rockbox UI simulator? You can easily tweak themes on your PC, and take proper screenshots too.

GREAT!

Btw, for the download I guess he will put it on the rockbox theme site, don't share it there please. It's not worth having hundreds of theme downloads, a big mess then

EDIT: by the way, is there already the Samsung YP-R0 UI simulator? Since okay you could use the toshiba gigabeat one but it looks more professional having the original one

Looks great indeed

There are still issues on the theme website due to the migration to Git. As you can see, only 8 themes show up in the R0 category while there are 37 in the Gigabeat category.
I would thus recommend you to upload it first in attachment here and upload it later on the Rockbox website when it's fully working.

There is no Samsung R0 UI simulator yet.
The problem with the Gigabeat simulator is that there is no FM radio.
Better to use a Sansa Fuze+ simulator instead

I'm using a Gigabeat simulator for theme creation. And yea, there is no radio.
Where I can download Fuze+ simulator? I didn't found it here http://rasher.dk/rockbox/simulator/.
There are some defects in the theme so I will upload it when it's done.

There is no official Fuze+ UI simulator either. Someone on the IRC built it for me long time ago. Ask on the IRC for an updated version

Just surf the rockbox.org website: here you will find, in the wiki, everything you need to start doing it
Lebellium can answer you in a better way, since he started working on themes too hehe

@Mr.Frost: prepare the radio UI since I was able to make it work, and you will see it in later releases hehe

Wow, great news! Keep up great work!
All
And here is the first release of the theme! There is no radio skin atm, and it doesn't work with some releases with check wps bug. Works with latest 8a87b66 build of rockbox fine!
I've redrawn some elements such as shuffle, repeat, volume knob and hold icon(made a bit smaller):
Attached Files
File Type: zip Rayboradio_ypr0.zip (39.4 KB, 9 views)

Yes! Great theme

Among the 37 themes available for the R0, it's quite easy for me, only 2 are worth it: yours and mine

wasn't sure about that

haha anyway yes indeed, great theme! Good work!
I'll test it asap and give the feedback...

EDIT:

Great, simply great hehe

Since it is wonderful, just 2 things I've seen about the package hihi:
- you need to create the .rockbox folder in the zip file (I guess it's also a guideline for themes, apart from being the best while installing them )
- you should remove _ypr0, if possible, since it works also on other devices. But it's ok anyway in case
