I love the theme thank you, but for some reason everything is much smaller than it should be, making the skin almost unusable. If i setup the ui at 200% its way too big.
It's the steam version and i have a normal 1920x1080 laptop monitor.
There is maybe a way to force something lika a 130% ui scale?

Unfortunately no, because of the way Aseprite works. To make the skin I had to double the resolution of the icons and the fonts, so technically it's already in 200%, that's why choosing 200% makes everything too big. 

Under the limitations I've tried to keep the sizes close to Photoshop's UI, but if things are way to small for you, you can easily personalize the sizes of the main elements. ^^ Here's a micro-tutorial:

  • Go to Preferences>Theme>Minimal Dark HD and choose "Open Folder"
  • Open the file "Theme.XML" on your favorite text editor, in this case I'm using Notepad++.
  • After making a change, just save it and press "F5" in the editor to hot-reload the UI.

I'm planning to make a version of the theme focused for 1920x1080 on the next Aseprite update, with a script to change the settings in a special interface, but I'm still on planning stages for this. ^^

Thanks for the mini tutorial, very kind!

Just wanted to point out, that on the Mac version, there appears to be a small UI bug on the active tab.

Thank you so much for pointing it out, will check what is wrong and will get back to you soon.

Managed to test it, it should be corrected, you can download the new version here: https://2dchaos.itch.io/minimal-dark-aseprite-theme/devlog/72567/061a-update-small-fix-for-osx Thanks for reporting!

Very beautiful

Thank you so much, hope you enjoy it!

this theme looks really good. however when following the steps i just can't seem to get it to work. the file does not show in the add extensions option at all and i am new to aseprite (was just gifted it today) so it can very much be on my fault but i have no idea how to fix this. sorry for the bother but if can assist would very much appreciate

Hi there, be sure that you select "All Files" in the File Type drop-down on the Add Extension window, I'll add this step to the Install Instructions ;) In the next versions of Aseprite the .aseprite-extension should appear automaticaly in this filter.

oh it's so obvious now you have said so oops... thank you so much! now i can truly say this theme is looking very good switching from ps to this has gotten a lot easier. thank you again!


ps but saw some of your work while looking for answers saw your work and it is very nice! inspiring even

Thank you so much for your kind words, hope you enjoy the theme and make some beautiful art with ^^

how come you didn't put a cursor in the theme

Hi, could you be more specific? There are cursors in the theme, one for each individual tool and a generic one. Make sure that "Use Native mouse cursors" is unchecked in the options.


when i installed the skin, there was no normal cursor. Only for the tools and some crosshairs. I looked on the image file and saw where the cursor would be but nothing was there.

  

I just added my own so it's not a problem for me anymore.

Ah, thanks for getting back to me, glad you could solve it! 

That's weird,  because the cursor is there, it is just in a new position, right here: 

Did you install the theme using the Extension Manager? Are you sure there wasn't a cursor when you installed? The cursor is pretty small, could it be that? I'll ask for help testing this on the discord channel. 

(+1)

it must have been that I installed it by just the folder instead of an extension manager. Thanks for the help

No problem, glad you could manage ^^ Be sure to try the new version, I made new cursors ;D

Hi!

I'm playing with your theme on Linux and I encountered this error. It only happens with the non-pixel-font version. The pixel-font version works alright.


Hi there, thank you so much for the report! I have little experience with Linux, does it come with the Arial font family? As a work around you could try installing it. I asked the creator of Aseprite is there's anyway of having different fonts for different OSes and will bring you an update when he answers ^^

No, Arial is a Microsoft font. There are ways of installing in on Linux though. I'll try it out and report back. But yeah, picking something more universal or having different options for different OSes would be nice.

So even with Arial installed I'm getting this issue.

All right, thanks for trying, I'll try do some tests in Linux here and will update the next version to manage Linux. ^^

Hi there! Test the new version when you can, it should be working in Linux now ;) 

Heyy :D Just wanted to say, i absolutely love your theme, it makes Aseprite so much nicer to look at, especially with the new update.

There's only one weird thing i noticed both on Windows and Mac which is, when using the Color/Tint/Shade/Tone mode of color selecting and sliding the little circle along the edges of the selection window, it kinda "multiplies"... i mean the circle just kinda sticks there... seems to be a graphic error, hope that makes sense...

I attached an image, you can see the thing happening at the left and right borders...


Still, love the theme i hope you keep updating it :))


Many thanks!


Hi there! That's been driving me nuts for a while but I can't see to figure out where this error is coming from hahah. I'll try to post on Aseprite's community and see if anyone has any ideas on how to fix this. Thanks for the kind words and for reporting ;)

Finally managed to find the bug and correct it on version 0.4 of the theme! ^_^ Thanks for reporting!

Best theme I've seen for Aseprite to date. Nice work.

Thank you so much! ;) Glad you like it!

upgrade for new verssion aseprite pleaze ?

I'm using it in Aseprite 1.2beta12 without problems, are you sure you're using the latest beta?

yea the more I encounter the document in aseprite-theme, it does not detect it, I replace the default files, crash software

ok I just found the problem it misses the file "package.json" to be able to install it in .zip or move the file

Sorry, I still don't understand, there's no need for package.json on the theme files. If you compiled it yourself I suggest you go to https://community.aseprite.org/ and ask questions there, since I'm using the steam version myself.

I've got the same problem unfortunately... When i try to install the extension from the .zip file with Aseprite beta 1.2beta12, i get the following error message:

(I'm on Mac OS X Sierra)
