Thanks for letting me know. I'll test with the DarkBootX theme and see.

 

Looks OK here on my current build, but then I'm currently working on changes. Did you try with the build I posted yesterday (above)?

 

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.

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.

 

TextOffset.thumb.jpg.a12d5b6d2570bf75274b5fd62951c247.jpg

 

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.

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..

This gives me something to work on...

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....

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).

Why


EntriesWidth = GlobalConfig.MainEntriesSize + (16 * row0TileSize) / 144;

May be better just

EntriesWidth = GlobalConfig.MainEntriesSize;

?

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)

      Budget Workstation MacOS 10.14.1 build: z370 AORUS Gaming 5 - i5-8600K - RX 580 - UHD 630
      flawless iGPU/dGPU integration, fast FCPX editing/rendering, great overall performance for ~$1200 / ~£1000
       
      Update: updated WhateverGreen and Lilu, then updated OS to 10.14.3 and everything is fine! Even iMessage, which previously I hadn't been able to make work, is now working - possibly the update flushed the NVRAM?
       
      I'm gonna come straight out and admit it - I used newb tools which are considered taboo on InsanelyMac, and so this isn't so much an installation guide as it is a green flag to anyone considering the same hardware. My first and previous Hackintosh project was just over ten years ago and this site was massively helpful, so this is my (very small) way of giving back.

      ADVICE
      With the Clover configuration, you want to pay close attention to all things relating to graphics. There are some specific settings for ACPI, Boot, Devices and Graphics which should be copied exactly in order to get the iGPU and dGPU to work in perfect harmony. For instance, make sure you use ig-platform-id 59120003 rather than 59120000 if you want FCPX to be usable. With the right settings, FCPX will not only run, but run flawlessly.
       
      I was not able to figure out how to make NVRAM/PRAM behave itself, and I got errors when I tried to issue relevant commands. As a result, I could not at first get iMessage to work properly. It worked once on my first installation attempt but not from subsequent attempts. This Clover configuration therefore has no consideration whatsoever toward iMessage reliability - however, iMessage ended up working somehow, anyway - I noticed it after I'd updated to 10.14.3 but this may just have been coincidence.
       
      Onboard WiFi does not work. There is no driver for it. I'm using wired ethernet to a bridge router as it was cheaper than getting a compatible PCI card.
       
      Audio is working well after I installed the z370 audio patch, then the ALC1220 codecs, then AppleALC.
       
      With kexts for generic 3rd party SATA and generic 3rd party eSATA, my HDDs and DVD drive work perfectly well.
       
      Sleep/Wake functions run perfectly. iCloud functions run perfectly. Shutdown leaves the mobo LEDs on, annoyingly.
       
      My USB 3 ports seem to suffer from low power output, and I don't know why.
       
      Overall, this system appears to run about as well under MacOS 10.14 Mojave as it does under Windows 7. I would solidly recommend this build to anyone looking to build a computer for workstation purposes, on a budget.

      Good morning, everyone, I'm sorry if I was wrong in choosing the topic but I need help.
      I have found it extremely difficult to mount a Hackintosh in my acer.
      Setup;
      I5 2430m 2.4 6GB RAM
      Mobo P5we0 - Intel intel Graphics 3000
      At the moment I have not found out what my audio codecs are.
      but I'll leave the link on the motherboard.
      however, my real problem is several.
      I have already used the itakos image, I have already used several images that could be installed normally and that after installing the image I do not have internet via cable or wireless.
      And another, I already looked in other forums and I know that I will be called a donkey in the logical question but I have not been able to install the [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] or clover to start from the Hard Disk, so I do not know what to do.At the moment I still do not know if there has already been someone who has already installed the High Sierra or just the Sierra in this notebook model and obtained permanent success.
      If anyone can help me, I'll be grateful.
      Installations without success, but with the system already installed in ACER;
      SIERRA
      HIGH SIERRA
      MOJAVE
      All with the same symptom. Starting only by the bootable USB stick and without internet connection via cable and wireless.
      Appreciate ! Acer 5750 Official Page

      Since rev 4844 Vector Themes are supported and there are ready-to-use Clovy by Clovy, cesium by Slice and BGM_SVG by Blackosx.
      You may see it's structure to create own theme
      -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
       
       
      Now I want to add vector graphics support in Clover. See rev 4560 and later.
      It is not working yet but designers may begin to create Vector Themes.
      It supposed to consist of SVG elements and has design size. It will be rendered to any screen size scaled from design size.
       
      What application in macOS can create SVG graphics?
      Inkscape is not working in macOS 10.11+. Pity.
      LibreOffice Draw works with SVG but buggy.
      Boxy SVG cost 10$ but looks good enough. It creates the best in simplicity files and have more then enough features.
      Illustrator is good but expensive.
       
      How to improve SVG file?
      Clover has restricted support for SVG. It is your job to make compatible file and as small as possible to speedup rendering.
      Some helps:
      Help:Inkscape – From invalid to valid SVG Inkscape files
      From invalid to valid SVG Adobe Illustrator files
      From invalid to valid SVG files of other editors: BKchem, ChemDraw and CorelDRAW
      Help:Illustrator – Assistance with creating and saving SVG images in Adobe Illustrator that will pass W3C validation
      User:Quibik/Cleaning up SVG files manually
      Later I will write own instructions specific to Clover abilities.
       
      How to create SVG fonts?
      You can google to find ready-to-use SVG fonts.  I found some problems with too beaty fonts: slow rendering and overflow crash. Be careful.
      You can get ttf or otf fonts and convert them into svg by using online WEB services. Not a problem to google.
      But then I want to find a way to simplify the font to reduce a size and speedup rendering.
      You can create own font by FontForge It is opensource and available for Windows, Mac and GNU+Linux. It creates otf font which you can convert to svg font.
