I think its pretty cool. You are getting close. The Master MCP meter shrinks on me when I make the mixer full. If I pull the mixer down just a touch it becomes fullsize. The Fader Caps don't seem proportionate to the rest of the theme (to small). That bugs me for some reason. I think some old skool Round Caps would look cool on this as well.
WT makes the coolest transport. I like your version but I wish the buttons lit up different. Example, the Green Play button. I am not crazy about the Green, but if that was a real button, it would not all turn green. Maybe the Black stays Black, the Green just around the edge?

Mixer Panel: Meter Full, I really DIG this. If it only had a single gain knob at the bottom on each channel, this would make it a Mixing Beast! I would finish all mixes with it like that.

All in all good job man. Keep it up

It is coming along great bro. I like the faders more now. The meters are buggy when I change size though.
When I make Reaper full screen, the master meter gets real small and the track meter get smallers. If I pull the mixer down making it just a hair smaller, the meters get bigger.
The mixer, maybe the buttons glow a little brighter? The solo, Rec, etc. They are really hard to tell if they are on or not.

Maybe a fader cap that is cream/off white with a black line. It might be a little easier to see. Or a metal cap.
The dark cap could look slick if the fader groove had a little grey around the slot, if that makes sense. Or gray lines across the fader groove.

I just think your theme is sexy. And she needs a sexy little fader on her groove. Something that glides smooth. She wants it. She needs it.......

The add fx is hard on my eyes and a little hard to see. Good job on all this though, it looks amazing. I am just being picky and offering feedback.

I know what it is now. The fader caps look much better. But your pan knob looks BOSS! It looks like I can reach out and turn it. Your Fader cap is not quite as good as the pan, imho.
A light under the fader might help as well instead of the other ideas. But she wants a nice curvy sexy fader cap........

Just redownloaded, and added theme, but mixer faders still blank, just one master fader is present.

Pity, as it's a very nice theme.

What size screen are you using in (pixels)
there is another theme that is some what similar. Try "Solaris_lcs" see if that works. Both mine and lcs versions were originally created by another named Albert.

Ok I'll check the stash for that other version.

Pixel size is 1920 x 1200.

Thank you for the help. It's a strange one for sure.

EDITED:
Well that theme (Solaris_LCS_Blue_v2.zip) worked perfectly: https://imgur.com/a/NqvF2 It did unpack with a folder full of icons, where as the original had no folder. It's like some of the theme elements are not included. Not sure if that is the problem.

I'm on Win 7 X64, and latest version of REAPER.

All themes work, and I've tried a few over the last day of so to check it's not a config issue.

I did find a thread on here about missing mixer faders, and it said to copy from another theme, but that would defeat the option of using the mixer as it's was meant to be.

That thread is here: https://forum.cockos.com/showthread....ssing+elements

I can see why you might say this, but that's not totally true in my case.

I checked the RTCONFIG. There is no default layout.
try selecting another layout and the faders should show up.
When he said: "try mixer full screen." he meant try the FullScreen layout for the mixer, not run the mixer at full screen.

Ah, hopefully a fix will appear soon.

Thank you for your time and help lucas_LCS.

P.S. do you know how to access the RTCONFIG file from the theme? I've looked and cannot find a way in this theme, but on other with a fold I see the RTCONFIG file.

EDIT:- Ah i see it unpacks with 7zip and I can see all the content. Not sure I want to have a go at editing that rtconfig.txt though. Not big on theming :shock:

EDIT 2:- Copied your text to the rtconfig file, saved it, and it works!

Many thanks to you both. sickamorz for a lovely theme, and to lucas_LCS for the theming txt help.

That series 2 version works even better, with the correct mixer view.

Great job, and many thanks again for the time and your work.

So now both are working good for you?

I only made the color faders work and installed the fader caps that I made several months ago.

Yesterday there was something funny with the mixer tracks on the series 2 after some work to make the color work it disappeared.
