View Full Version : Changing GUI color in lw8.0

05-06-2004, 11:07 AM
Hey Lw'rs

Is it now possible to change the GUI color in lw8.0?
Has anyone made some nice changes and maybe want to share the .cfg files?

I want to get as close to 7.5c as possible (color + menu's placement).

If this thread is a dubble post. Plz remove.

Yeah, I just tested and it still works the same way as before. (at least on OSX)

I always used this before

BackgroundColor 080 080 115
StateButtonColor 080 080 100
ToolButtonColor 080 080 100
ActionButtonColor 120 120 140
DialogButtonColor 080 080 110
DragButtonColor 160 170 190
InfoAreaColor 115 115 130
InfoAreaTextColor 255 255 255

but I like 8's colors better. The new menu placement of everything is also really nice, just takes a little getting used to.

I haven't got 8 yet, but would like to try changing the interface colours in 7.5c
on the Mac OS 10.3, if anyone could explain how its done. I cant find the relavent lines in library> preferences>LW Hub prefs.

Just add those lines in, it doesn't matter where. However, it may not work if you use textedit, it has to be encoded the right way, so download BBedit Lite. Then it works.

Also make sure there is only one space between each number and all that.

Thanks very much for that, I've tried it out using your colour scheme and it works a treat, adding something that wasn't already their would never have occurred to me.
