It's the Christmas period so my time is limited ATM so sorry for my lack of replies.

Ugh, I'm out of it. I mean like if there are more entries than appear on the screen, do they work right? And is there a difference between the rows between themes? Because it looks like the second row of icons is lower on raster themes now then vector themes, I think the same issue just vertically.

 

EDIT: I think I mean the reverse but whatever, I have no idea what I'm saying anymore, there just appears to be a difference.

 

Yes. More entries than appear on screen work fine.

I agree, there is a difference between the vertical placement of rows in raster themes and vector themes though I've not looked in to this as of yet. I'm sure this can be worked on in time.

I assume that your vector themes will be 128px very nice, I can not wait to try it.

Great luck in making vector themes 128 px.

 

Yes, from what I can tell, all vector themes should be designed as per Clovy's sizes, which is what I based BGM_SVG on.

Now the value is 32, which one do you suggest?

 

"TileYSpace=N" is an optional layout value that can be used to add vertical spacing to raster themes. Here's an example showing 'not used' (left side), 128px (right side).

 

TileYSpace.thumb.jpg.892e6d70d498498a702674a1faf400fe.jpg

 

As you can see, this pushes the text down by 128px also so that's why there's another optional layout setting exists, TextOffset, which allows you to change it's position. So adding  

            <key>TextOffset</key>
            <integer>-100</integer>

Then moves the text back up.

See theme.plist from BGM256 for more examples of what can be set. Feel free to play with the settings to come up with different layouts.

Yes I am using the build you posted yesterday (but I did have to rename CLOVER.efi to CLOVERX64.efi if that makes any difference) along with the current DarkBootX theme (v1.7) with a custom icon for macOS Mojave (doesn't make a difference if I use the original one). Random thought; would forcing screen resolution in Clover cause it to happen? If so, I have mine forced to display at 2560x1440. But yeah, MainEntries are still off-center for me. Second random thought; I also use only custom entries too, perhaps that's why it happens?

 

EDIT: I removed the 2560x1440 screen resolution, and it didn't make a difference so it isn't that.

 

EDIT 2: Switched from custom entries to auto and that doesn't make a difference either, MainEntries are still off-center for me. I'm stumped now.

 

Are you sure you aren't using \EFI\BOOT\BOOTX64.efi as your clover and thats what needed replaced?

Thanks for this new report and for details of what you've tried. This will need some further testing when I get time.

 

EDIT:

I've just tested again, this time using a new build of Clover with a couple of patches applied. This time I see it too..

You were using r4818 (could be from SF release?) instead of blackosx's r4817 which is different, few things were changed from r4785 commit. My attached r4819 below is another "different" bcoz I reverted back r4785 commit to r4784 instead of changed them (I really didn't understand should change to what LoL). Now we have 3 diff. Clover's; I hope you're bit confuse but for testing purpose I guess you could preview them using VM instead of real HW (or via USB FlashDisk).

 

#EDIT: Or you just forgot to copy blackosx's CLOVERX64.efi to \EFI\BOOT\ and rename it to BOOTX64.efi

And the icons are centred as you said, before 4785.

Yes, but I'm just afraid if Vector theme layout (that currently I'm working on) would be affected, it looks similar with what SF has but who know; I was reverting it when r4808 arrived BTW (which I believe another few changes were made on those files from r4785).

The main change for centred icons is down to the line discussed here

 

For designing vector themes, sure, the layout is still new and under development, but I believe as long as you design as per the latest Clovy, then you'll be good. Though I wouldn't rush to create lots of vector themes just yet as I'm sure settings will change as bugs are ironed out and new ideas/settings are implemented. But having said that, it's only by creating new vector themes that bugs and other ideas may arise.

If allowed I'll propose "a key" to disable vector GUI and or SVG support on config.plist (if it' s possible) for user to decide; I got significant performance degradation with (probably, my Nvidia Fermi graphics on 2nd gen?), but no problem with Vesa on a laptop that comes with 4th Gen IntelHD 4xxx (Clovy is well loaded for no more than 2 secs, but mine took about 20-30 secs.. I use 1360x768 for ScreenResolution to get it closer to native res, which on Intel HD I changed nothing to get a proper native res on Clover GUI.. or could bcoz something else which I don't know what is it, dynamic DayLight? I don't use it btw). Yes, apianti has told many times that how icons drawn on GUI were changed since Vector introduced, though.

 

#EDIT: Or bcoz I've installed too many themes (more than 60 items lol), since now I play with VM a lot instead of real HW for preview purpose, I think need to remove them and report later. Thanks anyway.

@Awesome Donkey

Just to be sure, can you please test try DarkBootX with this version of Clover?

CLOVER.efi.zip

 

EDIT:

And of course rename CLOVER.efi to either CLOVERX64.efi or BOOTX64.efi if you need.

 

We've got a winner! It's nice and center now, thanks!

I don't think a key is necessary as surely the theme entry in either nvram or config.plist does this?

Can you post a debug log to show timings? This may help identify where any lags are happening.

Shouldn't make much of a different which resolution you use. You could always test with BGM_SVG as that contains many of the possible variations of content, for example many icons and day/night versions of each.

Yes, there have been lots of changes to implement vector themes so there may well be bugs that need addressing.

No issue. Any theme entry in nvram will take precedence over a theme entry in config.plist.

Weren't you saying you experience long delays with the Clovy theme? Your log shows you only loading your Apocalypse raster theme.

Oh yes, I removed it BTW.. last time using it on real HW was with r4784 or earlier. Will do more tests with vector theme. My bad, the issue about slow loading vector GUI probably has been resolved with recent Clover revs.

@Slice Sorry for another report.

We have weird scrollbar appearance since r4811, only bar_fill & scroll_fill are shown properly (especially if they contain Alpha). Thanks.

 

scrollbar_r4811.png

 

So is this still an issue?

 

I've just tested your DarkBoot theme on my hack with latest Clover build and see the scrollbar is okay, but then do I need to check on a lighter background?

 

Besides, WTF happened to vertically positioning of logo? Is this another new bug? I see it on all raster themes....

 

image.thumb.jpg.19e52e711b8f6aaff136808dfcbf5753.jpg

 

EDIT:

It seems this only happens if I boot with a default vector theme, then change to a raster theme from within the GUI.

 

time out. gotta go out now.

About scrollbar currently: Yes. Even if I fill layer with non-transparent color, but drawn on top transparent background; it'll show weird black color over it.

I remember have reported this issue before (on vector theme thread): If Vector theme is used by default, then switched to Raster theme; Raster's Banner positioning would follow vector has. No issue if Raster theme is the default (till it changed to vector, then switched back).

@blackosx Weird, on my case with r4820 if Clovy (vector) is used by default, then switched to Raster > Banner positioning for Raster theme will become upper (not lower as seen on your screenshot). Uhmmb, the only diff. from my attached CLOVER below is I just added on ../rEFIt_UEFI/entry_scan/loader.c (for KDE Neon Linux entry):

	...  
	{ L"\\EFI\\neon\\grubx64.efi", L"KDE Neon EFI boot menu", L"neon,linux", "KDE Neon" },
#else
	...
	{ L"\\EFI\\neon\\grub.efi", L"KDE Neon EFI boot menu", L"neon,linux", "KDE Neon" },
#endif

(Screenshot was using 1920x1080 res virtually).

?

Using your option with bigger than 128px for MainEntries, horizontal allignment issue is back and also cropped when item is highlighted (Selection_big). But Clovy looks better (well centered, no longer has 8px gap to left side)

row0width = (EntryWidth + EntryGap) * Num - EntryGap;  // without last entrygap

row0pos = (UGAWidth - row0width) / 2;

So the commit 4785 is right. The issue is somewhere else.

This is great for themes with 128px icons.

 

Settings.c has
GlobalConfig.MainEntriesSize          = 128;

 

But other themes use different sizes, for example DarkBootX icon sizes are 160px wide and BGM256 icon sizes are 256px wide.

 

I was thinking maybe the easiest solution is to allow designer to define icon width in theme.plist, but there is already a Theme->Layout->MainEntriesSize setting which I'd forgotten about, though it gives different result.

 

https://clover-wiki.zetam.org/Design

 

MainEntriesSize - The size of the main device icons is set internally in the code to 128. Changing this value will instruct Clover to scale the device icons. For example, using a value of 256 on a theme with 128px icons will show the device icons scaled up to 256px. Note: badges will not be affected and will more than likely need repositioning.
 

So needs more attention.. To be looked at after Christmas

      Can I propose a new subforum be created for the new OpenCorePkg OpenCore front end being created by vit9696 and others, it is a fantastic piece of work:
      https://github.com/acidanthera/OpenCorePkg
      Even at version 0.1 it runs my Mojave 10.14.4 setup very nearly flawlessly. It consists of a 10KB bootstrap BootX64.efi and a 200KB OpenCore.efi OS loader. All configuration is done using a very well documented config.plist

      Dear all,
       
      I have a external harddisk about 500GB, I installed the clover into it and the harddisk is GPT format, below is the 3 partitions details:
      FS01: EFI - disk0s1 - fat32
      FS02: install mac  image - disk0s2 -  hfs+
      FS03: install windows 10 - disk0s3 - fat32
       
      I can use this external harddisk to install Mac without issue, I use below steps to install windows 10
      enter the FS03:
      cd to efi/boot/ and excuete bootx64.efi
      after pop up the windows install screen, i click next and it shows error 'A media driver your computer needs is missing...' and the installation can not go any further.
      Firstly I use ultraiso to write the windows 10 image to a flash disk and no issue to start install window 10 so the image is working fine. Since I dont know how to write
      a wiindow installation image into harddisk partition, I used winrar extra all the files into disk0s3, am I missing some steps or actually clover not support to install windows
      by partitions, apprecating any helps.

      Acer Aspire V15 V5-591G - Catalina 10.15.1
      This post will no longer updated, go for the osxlatitude link for further updates
      Original and updated link:
      https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/11355-acer-aspire-v-15-v5-591g-catalina-windows-10/
      (Note: mine is 55TU version, but the bootpack will work fine with another versions of 591G, for example: V5-591G-71K2, -764Z, -59PU, etc.)
      Specifications:
      - Motherboard: USOPP_SLS (Skylake-H PCH)
      - BIOS: Insyde Corp. v 1.15

      - Battery: 6 cell 56Wh / 5040mAh
      - Connectors: 
      1x SD Card Reader 2x USB 3.0 (1x USB Charging), 1x USB 2.0 1x VGA 1x HDMI 1x 3.5mm microphone/audio combined jack connector 1x Ethernet (Rj-45) - Keyboard & Touchpad: Multi-Touch & Multi-gestures ELAN 501 Touchpad, Backlight Keyboard.
      Working:  
      - Wi-Fi (with BCM94352Z)
      - Bluetooth hand-off (With BCM94352Z)
      - Full Graphics enabled on HD 530: ig-platform-id: 0x191b0000 (HD 530 Mobile)
      - Display: if default colour profile is corrupted (blue is not actual blue but purplish) Use "Rec. ITU-R BT. 709-5" Color Profile (System Pref. -> Displays -> Color)
      - HDMI & VGA Outputs: AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext Clover patch
      - Audio (ALC 255): (Internal Speakers, Internal Microphone, Headphone jack with AppleALC, ALCPlugFix -> layout-id=17)

      - 3.0 USB (native)
      - Touchpad and Keyboard (ELAN501): Fn keys are good, the weird thing is the Brightness key. On my keyboard it's Pause Break:Br-up, Fn+F12:Br-dwn-> To fix this try Karabiner (VoodoPS2Controller.kext), - for gestures try SmartTouchpad drivers
      - Battery info: Install ACPIBatteryManager.kext with Kext Utility or other installer.
      - Sleep Mode
      - SSD with TRIM enabled (to enable trim, open Terminal and write "sudo trimforce enable")
      Not working:
      - Original Wi-Fi (Qualcomm Atheros QCNFA344A):  unsupported, you need switch to BCM94352Z or just use a mini usb wifi dongle.
      - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M: Optimus not supported.
      - Card Reader: Unsupported -> Can't really fix because I don't have any SD Card at the moment, maybe can be fixed by adding Prod & Ven IDs to AppleStorageDevices.kext, I never used it anyway. name: "USB2.0-CRW" Prod ID: "0x0129" Ven ID: "0x0bda  (Realtek Semiconductor Corp.)"
      For Wi-Fi:
      - 1st method: You can choose an external USB wifi dongle (I used TP-Link Archer T1U (5GHz support), TP-Link has official macOS drivers, you just need to install it
      - 2nd and I think the best method: Replace your M.2 Qualcomm Card with a compatible BCM94352Z card (you will have hand-off Bluetooth too), just install the kexts (enabled with BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext, BrcmPatchRAM2.kext, FakePCIID.kext, FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext, they're all in my attached zip). You could buy this card from ebay, aliexpress, or amazon
       
      Issues:
      - None
      BIOS Settings:
      - BIOS version 1.15 (irrelevant)
      - Secure Boot: Disabled
      - Touchpad: Advanced
      - Boot mode: UEFI
      Getting ready for Installation:
      - Download the Catalina install zip (bootpack & postinstall): acer_aspire_V591G-55TU_cata.zip
      Installation:
      - Create an installer with any method you know (- Mac: createinstallmedia - Windows: Transmac, Vmware, Win32diskimager)
      - Copy my Clover folder to the USB's EFI folder
      - Boot with the Installer USB
      - If you stuck in boot, reboot and in the Clover bootloader select "config_debug.cfg" -> you'll have more informations about the freeze
       
      Please open the README.rtf in my install zip for more informations about the USB Installer & Post installation!
      On Catalina the System folder is read-only, so you need to remount in rw to modify System/Library. 
      If you have a single RAM and getting panic at boot, then you need to edit the "config.plist" with these (SMBIOS->after "Version 1.0"):
      ->Edit "Frequency" and "Size" to match your RAM values
      <key>Version</key> <string>1.0</string> <key>Memory</key> <dict> <key>Channels</key> <integer>1</integer> <key>SlotCount</key> <integer>1</integer> <key>Modules</key> <array> <dict> <key>Slot</key> <integer>0</integer> <key>Size</key> <integer>8192</integer> <key>Frequency</key> <integer>2133</integer> <key>Type</key> <string>DDR4</string> </dict> </array> </dict> </dict>  
      PowerManagement  fix:
      Set HWPEnable=YES in Clover (already set), CPUFloor to "700", Frequency to "2300" and "3200"(Normal and Turbo, if you have i7-6700HQ version then it should be "2600", "3500") and "FrequencyVectors" from "0x0d000000" to "0x07000000" in "S/L/E/IOPlatformPluginFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/X86PlatformPlugin.kext/Contents/Resources/Mac-A5C67F76ED83108C.plist", MSR _xcpm_idle Patch to KernelToPatch in Clover (If you have High Sierra, change "MatchOS" to 10.13):

      <key>KernelToPatch</key> <array> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>MSR 0xE2 _xcpm_idle instant reboot(c) Pike R. Alpha</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Find</key> <data> ILniAAAADzA= </data> <key>MatchOS</key> <string>10.14</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> ILniAAAAkJA= </data> </dict> </array> Reboot, and it's 800MHz in idle state, same on Windows.
       

      Elan SmartTouchpad
      I only use scrolling, one-, double- & tripletap
      If you want to try other gestures go to this link for more informations, options (v4.6.5) ->  DETAILS ABOUT THE SMART TOUCHPAD DRIVER FEATURES
      Fn Brightness keys not working with this, tried several things without success. With VoodoPS2Controller it's working, but you'll have no gestures (neither scrolling).
       
       
      Before updating to a new version of Catalina please update kexts (and clover if necessary) to newer versions to avoid kernel panics.
      Generate a serial number with Clover Configurator.app (open up your config.plist with CC then -> SMBIOS -> Serial Number -> Generate New)
       
      Catalina & Windows 10 Dual-Boot:
      Dual-boot clean install (on one drive), UEFI Only:
       
       Boot into your Mac installer, Create 2 partitions in GUID table (1 for Win (I used FAT32 but I think it doesn't matter what you choose), 1 for Mac),   Install Mac, boot with your USB, mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), create an EFI folder (if there is no folder), copy the CLOVER folder I attached to the EFI folder, restart,  Boot into your Win installer, Format the partition you created for Win, install.   Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type:  bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi       5.  You're done! It will booting into Clover when you start the system, and you can select Win or Mac (or another OS if installed on a 3rd partition).
       
      Dual-boot with Windows installed first (on one drive), UEFI Only:
      If you already have Windows and you don't want to lose all your data there is a hope:
      I created a video from this restore method: [Hackintosh] Dual-Boot High Sierra & Windows - when Windows already installed - no data waste - UEFI
      You need bootable Mac Installer and a full system restore image (link is in my video's description).
      (You may see errors if your EFI partition is not 200 MB)
       Boot into your Windows, resize your partition or create one for Mac.  Boot into your Mac installer and in Disk Utility format the partition you created.  Restore from image: select your full system restore image.  When it's finished restoring you just need to restart, then boot to the system with your usb.  When you successfully booted to Mac desktop, mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), open EFI, you will see there is a Microsoft folder already (don't touch that!). Copy my CLOVER folder to the EFI folder then Restart.  Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type:  bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi       7.  You're done! You can select your old Windows and your new macOS!
      (Only tried with Windows 8/8.1/10. I don't know Windows 7,etc.)
       
      IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING MAC RESTORE:
      - Make sure you have partitions in GPT
      - Windows using 100 MB EFI and will annoy the Mac restore. Don't worry, just ignore the errors.
       
      IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING WINDOWS INSTALLATION (could not be formatted, etc):
      - Make sure you have GPT partitions, and GPT (UEFI) installer, also disconnect all external storage drives (except the installer USB)
       
      IF YOU USED RESTORE METHOD THEN CAN'T MOUNT YOUR EFI PARTITION (No EFI partition found):
      - It's because your EFI is not 200 MB or not an "Apple" original EFI,  but do not worry, try another EFI mounter, or mount from terminal (I used EFI mounter v3: Getting errors, but you can mount and use without problem)
      - You also could "mount" the EFI from Windows:
      1st method: open cmd in administrator mode and type:
      diskpart list vol (Now select the "System" volume,(FAT 32) For example I select 4) sel vol 4 list part (Select System type partition, for example 2) sel part 2 assign letter=b (This will "mount" your EFI partition) Open Explorer++ or TotalCommander in administrator mode to manage EFI remove letter=b (This will "unmount" your EFI) 2nd method: open cmd in administrator mode and type:
      mountvol b: /s (This will mount your EFI) Open Explorer++ or TotalCommander in administrator mode to manage EFI mountvol b: /d (This will unmount your EFI) Thanks to all OSXLatitude members for helping me out! (Jake Lo, Hervé, Bronxteck, black.dragon74)!
