Thread: Trying to make an application sound theme

  1. #1
    Default Trying to make an application sound theme
    I was bored today, so decided to change all (well, most) of the Tetris app sounds to the original Gameboy sounds. I managed to do it, and it sounds great on my iPhone, but now I want to share it with everyone else.

    Now how would I go about making it a theme? I tried making a "tetris retro.theme/Folders/tetristouch.app/(various .ogg & .m4a files here)" folder, but it doesn't seem to be working when I put it in the WinterBoard Themes folder. I can select it, but it doesn't change the default audio to my custom audio.

    Is the problem that Winterboard doesn't recognize .ogg's and .m4a's, or did I name my directories wrong, or what?

    IF it will work, you will need to use bundles for winterboard. Summerboard mode is what you are setting it up like currently, that no longer works.

    Thanks for the hint

    I gave it a try and it still doesn't work, so I guess I'll just put the files in the downloads section with instructions for installation :P

    It will work, you just have to set it up properly. Sorry, it's 5am here and my mind is too drained to get into specifics. I'll check it out tomorrow.

    Alright, what I tried was making the directory "tetris retro.theme/Bundles/com.ea.tetris/(all of my files)" and plopping it into the Themes folder. Checked permissions and they were all the same as my other themes.

    So does anyone else have suggestions on making it a winterboard theme? I've searched the forums, Google, and Cydia, but I can't find any 3rd-party app themes that I can use as a template. Closest I've found are some Doodle Jump themes, but they use the Summerboard system.
