Install Xcode from the app store and it includes a plist editor, so when you just open your config.plist it will open in the plist editor.

Thank you.

Kinda relevant but kinda not. How can I correct my bios time to local time and stop macOS from changing it so that my themes change colour at the right times.

 

I ask because if I set my Timezone in GUI to +10.30 (South Australia Daylight Savings time) at 6:30 pm local time I get the dark (night) GUI for BGM_SVG instead of the daylight one. So I must be doing something wrong. If I add +10.30 to my bios time it is correct with local time but after booting into macOS my bios reverts back. So my question is how to make either macOS use local time and not change bios or what Timezone information do I need to add to clover GUI to make it local time.

 

Found a fix for macOS to bring it inline with other operating systems.

With this i can set my bios to local time and macOS uses bios time instead of changing it to UTC.

Timezone in Clover should be integer value, sorry! You have to set 10 or 11 and see daylight from 8:30 to 20:30 in local time. 

Thanks Slice, So for my Timezone +10:30 what would I need to add?

I don’t see integer in Xcode or plistedit pro

You should have changed Windows to use UTC time as almost every OS does this with hardware time, except windows, and apparently ubuntu (and its derivatives) when windows is present. Set HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\TimeZoneInformation\RealTimeIsUniversal=1 in registry. Also even if you wanted a half hour offset, that would be 10.5, but it only uses integers, so as slice said, choose 10 or 11.

I have added config screenshot where are visible setting for theme Clovy.

 

Theme switches from night mode to day mode at 09.00 (GMT+1). Is there a possibility to change this to an earlier time.

Thanks in advance for help.

@Slice

 

Vector themes are currently drawn differently depending on whether the selection is on top or not.

 

Clovy theme has:
- bounding box for selection_big set at 144px wide
- bounding box for OSIcons set at 128px wide
- SelectionOnTop="0"


As SelectionOnTop is not set

 

In ParseSVGIcon()

https://sourceforge.net/p/cloverefiboot/code/4819/tree/rEFIt_UEFI/libeg/VectorGraphics.c#l107

 

MainEntriesSize is taken from selection_big so ends up being 144px. But, row0TileSize is then also set to the same 144px which results in the following layout, which as Badruzeus pointed out, is not centred.

However, if I change:
SelectionOnTop="1"

 

In ParseSVGTheme()

https://sourceforge.net/p/cloverefiboot/code/4819/tree/rEFIt_UEFI/libeg/VectorGraphics.c#l406

 

row0TileSize is set to 144px * scale and MainEntriesSize is set to 128px * scale which results in this layout which is centred.

Which is the intended correct result?

Sure, visually.


But I think what I meant with my question was is it correct that Clovy's selection_big BoundingRect (144px) is larger then the actual selection image (128px)?

This, in turn then sets row0TileSize (as selection is below) to the same size of the BoundingRect which affects the spacing when drawn.

Oh, probably not. I personally think that the design of the vector themes is wrong. It really shouldn't rely on specific sizes since the whole point of the vector themes is to scale appropriately across any display size. It should rely on percentages of how much the screen an item should use, relying on specific sizes is going to cause problems because you'll have to use those sizes for each item. This is the exact issue with raster themes currently. I think there just is not enough understanding that this should be done like a web layout. Even more still a very strange size was selected for the default screen size, one that is not supported by every display... If this was to be done this way, the correct size should have been 1024x768, since it is the only size that needs to be required by the drawing protocols. But like I said, I'm not even going to attempt to do anything with the GUI anymore, it's beyond a mess and SVG support is severely crippled. I am of the belief that just because something exists and is easy to incorporate does not make it the best choice, or even a good choice against writing something the way you need it to behave....

Change the timezone to a different offset like if you want it to happen at 0500, then choose -3.

I set Timezone yesterday to config.plist at -3.
Now in Slovenia, 07.40 in the morning, even the Clovy theme is not confused, but it still says the night.

You are totally right, but we have what we have so that's what I've got to play with.

In the case of SelectionOnTop we have no selection-big and so can't use it as row0 entry size.

We can use boundingRect but we have many possible row0 icons. Which one should be used to measure geometry?

May be claim os_mac to be obligatory and use its geometry? Or vol_internal? I am not sure. os-mac can be used for badges so it can have smaller size.

He said that he set it to +1 and it changed at 0900, so he already has firmware hardware time that is same as localtime, I was just giving an example that if he wanted to change it to earlier that he needs to change the offset to subtract from 0800. Now he will get 1100 as daytime since before he said +1 was changing at 0900. He does not need a timezone to get change at 0800.

Because

 

In ParseSVGIcon()

 

https://sourceforge.net/p/cloverefiboot/code/4819/tree/rEFIt_UEFI/libeg/VectorGraphics.c#l107

 

MainEntriesSize is taken from selection_big so ends up being 144px. But, row0TileSize is then also set to the same 144px which is not correct and results in the icons not being centred.  

But Clovy will be centred if SelectionOnTop="1"

 

BTW. Merry Christmas Slice

      CLOVER DUAL BOOT MOJAVE & WINDOWS 10 GUIDE 
       

       
       
      INCLUDES  MBR / LEGACY BIOS  TO  GPT / EFI CONVERSION
      USING MBR2GPT TOOL
       
       
      PREREQUISITE: Two physical discs ( SSD’s or HDD’s )
       
       
       
       
       
      STEP 1 - Clover dual boot configuration 
       
      Open config.plist with Clover Configurator
       
      Boot
       Legacy = PBR Timeout = True ( will remove the Timeout countdown, from Clover boot menu)  

       
      GUI 
      Scan / Custom
       Entries = True  Tool = True  Legacy = False ( removes extra Windows 10 entries )  
      Hide Volume
      - Preboot ( macOS Preboot )
      - Recovery ( macOS Recovery )
       

       
      So at boot you will have two options: boot macOS Mojave or Windows 10 
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
      ————————————————————
       
       
      STEP 2 - Using a drive without Windows 10 installed
       
      Disconnect system drive that contains your macOS Mojave install from computer ( This is so that Windows does not overwrite existing macOS Mojave boot loader )
       
      Proceed with a Windows 10 UEFI install.  
      After installation reconnect macOS Mojave Drive, the Windows installation should now be detected and usable in Clover. 
      If Windows 10 is not detected or able to boot,  then verify you installed Windows 10 as UEFI and not MBR ---->  ( Read step 2 - For a drive with Windows 10 installed )
       
       
      OR
       
       
       
      STEP 2 - Using a drive with Windows 10 already installed
       
      Verify your Windows install is  GPT / UEFI or MBR / Legacy BIOS.   
      If Windows install is GPT UEFI then Windows 10 install is ready to use at Clover boot menu, you should be able to boot into Windows directly from Clover boot screen. 
       

       
       
      But if  Windows drive is detected at Clover boot screen, but when booting Windows you get a black screen with a cursor on the top left,
      then this is most likely because Windows drive is MBR ( Legacy BIOS ).  You can easily convert MBR to GPT using  Windows MBR2GPT tool ( this saves hours work having to reinstall Windows 10 and setting up all your applications again  ) 
       
      If Windows 10 install is MBR / Legacy BIOS  then simply convert to GPT / UEFI  following instructions below ( read video summary and view video )
       
       
      ** To use Windows 10  MBR2GPT tool  you must have Windows 10 version 1703 ( creators update  ) or later and less than 3 partitions on 
      the Windows 10 drive **
       
      Video summary:
       
      Confirm Windows 10 drive is MBR Legacy BIOS ( in Windows Disk Management ) Reboot into Windows PE ( Advanced Startup ) Convert from MBR Legacy BIOS to GPT UEFI ( using commands below ) mbr2gpt /validate mbr2gpt /convert Restart Verify Windows 10 drive has changed to GPT UEFI ( in Windows Disk Management )  
       
       
       
      After conversion Windows 10 is ready to use at the Clover boot menu 
       
       
       
      STEP 3 - Stop Windows Boot manager from overriding Clover boot manager
       
      How to stop Windows boot manager from overriding your Hackintosh Clover boot manager when using dual booting between macOS and Windows

      OK, I've searching for days trying to gather up the tools to make my current install work correctly. I'm well on my way. But all the links to the things I currently must have were apparently nuked "during a forum upgrade". :(
      As far as EFI Studio goes; I can find many links to it. But for Insanelymac, they're broken (due to the upgrade), or for the Netkas site, they're links to either Rapidshare, or Mediafire that also no linger exist. I see many users here indicating that they used it to tweak their DSDT. But the web (google/duckduckgo), Instanelymac, and Netkas seem to have no idea where it's gone.
      Could some kind soul please share a copy, or a link? I'm a loooong time hacker, and would love to bring it back to life. In fact, I'd love to improve it -- or at least bring it up to current times. If only I knew where it was.
      Thank you for all your time, and consideration.

      This was spurred on from a discussion in the Clover General thread. Where there was a debate on bcdedit being able create/read/edit (U)EFI Boot entries. I didn't think it appropriate to post all this information there and somebody may want to make use of this and its likely to get lost in that massive thread.
       
      Out of curiosity I decided to see if I could create an EFI entry using bcdedit. What can I say I like a challenge.  Whilst is not a documented method by Microsoft, as it turns out in a round about way it IS possible to create an EFI entry using bcdedit and these are the steps I went through to add UEFI Shell located on a USB stick to the EFI entries. 
       
      Third party software is available that can create and edit UEFI entries from Windows with better support and more features. I'm just making this information available in case those options are unavailable. 
       
      DISCLAIMER - This is not a supported method. Use at your own risk. I recommend backing up your BCD/Firmware variables/settings beforehand.
       
      1) Copy {bootmgr} entry.
      C:\Windows\System32>bcdedit /copy {bootmgr} /d "UEFI Shell" The entry was successfully copied to {34e8383c-73a7-11e9-9cb0-94de8078a7b5}. 2) Edit the new entry using the new GUID bcdedit generated in the copy step.
        a) Set the device and path for UEFI shell on my USB stick.
      bcdedit /set {34e8383d-73a7-11e9-9cb0-94de8078a7b5} device partition=G: bcdedit /set {34e8383d-73a7-11e9-9cb0-94de8078a7b5} path \EFI\SHELL\SHELLX64.efi   b) Clean up some of the stuff that was copied from {bootmgr} (optional as far as I can tell, just makes things tidier in bcdedit)
      3) Put the new EFI entry first in boot order. (optional)
       
      After completing the steps above, here is what "bcdedit /enum firmware" shows:
       
      I shutdown my computer and when I turned my computer back on it booted up into UEFI Shell. After exiting the shell my PC went on to boot Windows.
      Here is the resulting dump using "bcfg boot dump -v" from that shell:
       
      You may notice that the shell shows as "Windows Boot Manager" in the bcdedit output. This I believe is because of the "WINDOWS" at the beginning of the option data that bcdedit added to the EFI Boot entry. I also believe this why bcdedit shows my Windows 8 installation as "Firmware Application" because it has no option data. I don't know how to remove this data using bcdedit nor do I know how the option data, that bcdedit adds, will affect other EFI applications.

      There might be a way to create the EFI entry without copying the Windows entry but if there is I'm unable to find any documentation on how one would do so. If you use the create command then it just puts it in the BCD and I'm unaware of a way to tell it to create it in EFI instead, other than by doing the above.
