Trying to generate a cool off black theme - but can't

Hey there OCPeeps!

I'm liking the cheat available via the Theme Wizard, but that sucker won't dance for me. :lol:

I keep asking him for a beautiful #363636 theme and I keep getting this nasty light gray. In fact, I kept feeding it all kinds of off black colors and it just kept giving me back the exact same nasty light gray no matter what black-gray color I gave it.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thx.

Hi,

The Theme Wizard isn't very good at monochromatic grayscale colours due to the design of the equations behind it. We'll take your feedback on board.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Thx Chris,  I'll have to work harder for my theme I guess.

But it's  :cool:   Makes the final product all the sweeter.

I promise to upload it to the community.  I've got to live up to my sig.  ;)
