Have you tried looking in your firmware menu to see if it matches the current localtime or if its indeed UTC? If its the first you need no offset, also this would make sense as +7 would give you 2125 and -7 would give you 0725, both are in night time.

It's never matched,,, at my macOS time is 14.25 but in BIOS it's 19.25. But time in windows and BIOS is same

So that is because you have -5 set which is EST which is eastern US. You must not have correct timezone set in macOS. In windows, it uses localtime unless you change a registry key DWORD:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\TimeZoneInformation\RealTimeIsUniversal=1

Then set the correct timezone for both of your OSes. Then your offset will work for where you are actually located.

 

EDIT: So either you want -7 because you are in MST in the US/canada or somewhere equivalent in the west, or you want +7 because you are in east asia, specifically indochina region.

So this is complete my conditions (sorry for bad english)

1. I set add Dword 32Bit at TimeZoneInformation for RealTimeIsUniversal=1 and change my time to 13.47 (automatic set by Windows Time)
2. In config.plist, i add Timezone = +7

Conditions
1. Boot into mac and set time as my local time (automatic set by internet location) 13.57 then reboot and enter bios
2. At my BIOS time is 06.57
3. Boot into mac and my time is 13.57

Reboot into windows, and mac again and windows again and repeat again my time in BIOS always set to 06.57 unless i delete REGISTRY Value about RealTimeIsUniversal then BIOS Time will same like Windows. But it will break again into 06.57 if i reboot from mac. So i need to set RealTimeIsUniversal=1 to make my Windows Time is not same like BIOS Time (06.57)

Clover Time is Night Mode (because BIOS 06.57)

My Questions:
How to prevent BIOS TIME change???

The link I posted earlier stops macOS from adjusting the bios as it switched macOS to local time (bios time) and not UTC.

But it doesn’t matter what time your bios says as long as macOS and windows have correct time it’s fine. And if Themes are dark or light when they aren’t supposed to be then you use the Timezone in GUI section.

Nice solution it work,, i tested it

So,
1. In mac my time is 16.13 (day time)
2. BIOS time is 09.13 (day time)

of course both of time is Daytime,, so i can't test the solution so i make change. Replace +7 to 7
1. Change my mac time to 21.00 (night time)
2. When boot my BIOS time is 14.00 (day time)

But, in CLOVER GUI theme is NIGHT,, so change +7 to 7 is the solution :)

Thanks @Slice

lol, i was just using +7 to differentiate between -7... but maybe we should change this line https://sourceforge.net/p/cloverefiboot/code/HEAD/tree/rEFIt_UEFI/Platform/Settings.c#l287 to

return (INTN)AsciiStrDecimalToUintn ((Prop->string[0] == '+') ? (Prop->string + 1) : Prop->string);

Because adding a + sign is a completely valid number still.

Just found a Clover bug with the Clovy theme: my initial selection is this:

screenshot2.thumb.png.ab504964c18caafb793ef5e48fcac4b8.png

 

Look at the "Boot..." label when I select Windows:

 

screenshot3.thumb.png.33fd7412b0d25641b1deaad59ac55be3.png

 

Part of the first letter of the previous label is still visible. Quick test will show such anomalies when switching from shorter to longer label and vice versa.

Not sure if it happens to other vector themes, haven't seen other so far.

The graphics card is Nvidia GTX 650.

 

Edit: seems like a graphics issue, no such problem with the Intel HD 4000 graphics on my laptop...

If you edit Clovy > theme.svg

Change .FontSizeMessageRow{font-size:20px;}

To 

.FontSizeMessageRow{font-size:22px;}

There is no such string in the whole file.

My bad, that was for BGM_SVG

And it should have been

Change .FontSizeMessageRow{font-size:22px;}

To 

.FontSizeMessageRow{font-size:20px;}

It's obviously not the theme, it's Clover and the way it draws the objects, using the NVidia GOP. Another example (BGM_SVG):

screenshot0.thumb.png.2ed0709d48bec019aa295aaae1648045.png

 

Look the trails when I walk through all the options from the second line. It's like drawing the new text above the old one, without removing it first.

Tried the same theme on Intel HD 4000 and guess what, everything looks normal.

 

Edit: everything seems fine on the HD 520 graphics on my other laptop. So it seems Clover doesn't play well with the NVidia GOP for some reason.

Yes, it’s a bug that needs looking in to. I saw it last week when setting the message row to be a larger size than normal. 

 

As SavageAUS pointed out, reducing the text size helped overcome this at the time but of course does not fix the bug.

Also, the GUI freezes, when I change the theme from the GUI menu, and I can't do anything, when it does, except to reboot with Ctrl+Alt+Del.

In addition to the above, there is something really wrong with Clover, using this particular NVidia GOP driver. Not sure if this issue happens on other NVidia cards, as I have only this one (GTX 650).

Oh, you guys, always finding problems with stuff. I personally think it's cool. I like that there are artifacts left behind on the screen, it's like it's adding to the ambiance of the themes. Very cool to have the amazing feature of having to restart to prevent you from choosing to unwisely change your theme, the first one was good enough!

LOL so silly api. the best feture is if you set clovy permanently in config and you can't even get back into clover... that's a super feature as well I call it  a security feature since you can only unlock from your thumb drive.... awesome!!! :thumbsup_anim:

I wish to announce my new SVG theme, night look

Снимок экрана 2018-12-27 в 7.32.51.png

 

It is far from complete and I also see bugs in Clover.

The theme demonstrates such technologies as: vertical layout, font usage, conic gradients, clip-path usage, symbol usage, text as picture and more.

Yeah, I got similar issue with vector theme on Nvidia GT 520 Vesa; but on my case is not only freezing in "GUI Tuning" (if vector theme being used) but also when pressing Space Bar on Boot volume then select Return (or Esc) it would frozen immediately. I've restarted my real mach more than 5 times for testing. Wait, I have a same issue on VirtualBox actually; graphics problem still?

Weird is all going fine on 10 inch Netbook with Intel GMA 3150 (Atom CPU, 1024x600 native, Vesa limited to 800x600, Legacy mode, no idea how to debug except running Clover from GPT Ext. USB).

 

@Philip Petev About font; there's no issue using Clovy has, but only with blackosx's BGM_SVG (which I believe is PTMono: one of Monotype font family).. not sure but on Raster theme previously we could play with CharWidth on theme.plist.. vector theme needs graphics editor or xml edit to change it, I think.

 

@Slice I see awesome thing when an Entry is selected using Clovy on r4825, it'll look upper on screen. A new feature?

It's a bug with drawing sum of Selection+Image. I am already working on it.

Well, a cool bug then.. it reminds me with "Smooth" raster theme honestly.

 

 

Spoke too early, I've to correct that no longer getting freeze issue when vector theme switch using VM since r4825 (or could be earlier, more recent than r4822), but just with my Nvidia Vesa on real mach. OK, I just read your other reply here.

      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.

      The script inside is editable.

      Hey!
      As I have 3 Monitors connected, my RX 570 gets arround 50°C while ideling/ web browsing etc. The problem is, that this temp is apparently just the threshold, when the fans start to spin. So the fans start spinning for a minute then they stop for a while again... This is very annoying for me as the rest of my hackintosh is nearly quiet (SSD, 120mm low RPM cpu fan, nearly silent PSU,...), especially when Im using the pc to revise for school. Does somebody know wether its possible to "change" the threshold till the fans start spinning? Like it would probably not be a problem for the gpu at all, if the temp rises to 55°C but therefore be soundless....
