You can very easily modify the interface of the ScreenPlay Pro. You need only change some of the images that are in /usr/local/bin/Resource. The new images have to have the same name and same size in pixels as the original ones, and have to be kept in BMP 16bits R5G6B5:
- File -->
- Save As...-->
- Format =BMP -->
- Save -->
- BMP options-->
- Advanced -->
- R5G6B5 -->
The skins page contains a template and shared skins to help you identify what images you need to modify. Warning: If you eliminate the files in /usr/local/bin/Resource, change the name, or replace them with a different format it is possible that you will not get any menu on the TV. In this case, it is necessary to reinstall the original firmware.
Absolute black (RGB = 0,0,0) is sometimes treated as transparent. So you may get unintended effects when using it which is why iomega probably used 16,16,16 instead.
When saving the image, it MUST be saved in 16-bit R5G6B5 BMP format. Most programs won't do that. GIMP (free) will do that if you select the option "Save As", save it as a BMP format, then when presented with the "Advanced Options" expand it and switch the format to R5B6G5. If you select to Save instead of Save as, you won't be presented with the advanced options dialog, and it won't save it under that format even if the file was previously that format.
Failure to save it in the right format will cause your screenplay to reboot when it tries to display the item. If it is on the main menu, your screenplay will be stuck in a continuous reboot.
These are the images found in the ZIP packages.
