About This File

Black & White - White & Black

Simple. Elegant. Easy on your eyes.

 

main.pngmainw.png

 

I decided to re-design the iOS Theme for my new mod design. All the multi-colored heavy themes were just too much all the time, so I knew that I had to make something simple this time. I settled on doing a theme that Ι wouldn't get tired of looking at, using the controls of the iOS theme that I really love. After a couple of months of beta testing, I can now officially release the B&W theme.

 

 

 

Are you enjoying this theme? I am currently focused on small unprofitable projects like this and could use the support. You can personally help me out with a small donation by clicking the PayPal button below

Main Screens

Ok, lets say your mod is now unlocked. These are the main vaping screens you're going to spend the most amount of time on.

 

   Wattage:                                        Temp Control:                                Replay Mode:

Menus

The familiar menus from the iOS Theme. They are all white in the White & Black version.

 

    Coil:                   Preheat/Boost:                Puff info:                      Settings:

Difference is in the details...

...and I'm all about the details.

 

Smart Watt Adjust

Haven't seen anyone do this so far, so this is the innovation I'm most proud of. I am both an MTL and a DTL vaper so i understand the frustration of both worlds. We had to choose a theme that allowed us to adjust the watts for our style or settle for with sub-par option. With the new Smart Watt Adjust feature, your wattage will change by 0.5 when you are below 20 watts and by 5 when you are above 100 watts. Everything in between is adjusted by 1. The Gordian Knot is solved, what's next?

(Need to register a wattage number before the change applies)

The Most Accurate Battery Gauges

Are you under the impression that your theme displays the battery level incorrectly? You're not crazy, 99% of the themes are... Using a small "hack" in theme designer, I can safely say that this theme will give you the most accurate representation of your battery level. Added to that, the battery gauges will turn red when you are at 20% or below. Need to charge 'em once in a while!

Swap battery % for time

 I felt like the "time or battery %" option shouldn't be missing from this theme. Some people may be used to it from the iOS theme. The option to choose which one you prefer is once again here.

Color Mapping chart

Like all my other themes, the record options are colored so that you know what line means what in the chart.

What's New in Version 1.0.1   See changelog

Released

Hotfix to remove "Replay Capable Coil Indicator" because it is not reliable.

Hello @gwyar,

Your english is fine, no worries :) . I've probably done my fair share of mistakes in the description. I've seen you around in the forum, nice to finally talk.

Good to know that you've done the watts increment changes before, also very good to know that somebody did it before you. Don't take me wrong, i didn't write that to offend you or others that did it before me in any way. I genuinely hadn't seen it anywhere and that's what i said. I was sure to phrase it like that, because i'm not browsing all the themes and therefore, I am not aware of what every other creator does with their controls. It still is an innovation for my line of themes and I'm really proud of it, I don't believe that I belittled anyone else in the process so i don't understand what you're really upset about...

As for the battery things i didn't say that i hacked it, I specifically used the quotations because it is not an actual hack. You seem to have ignored them. As for the red it is quite ignorant to believe that i added that in there as an innovation of some sorts. I personally have added way more in other themes with the battery gauge, but then again i don't expect you to have seen every other theme out there, that would be unreasonable and borderline crazy... I added the red low battery part after I talked about the battery gauge accuracy and made sure to separate it by starting a new sentence saying "Added to that". I really didn't want to make a separate segment to display that the battery turns red at 20% so I simply mentioned it there, there's really nothing more than that.. I really expected someone like you, especially as a creator yourself to understand how difficult it is to fit all that info in the "About this file" section.

TC capable and Replay Capable are the words that I carefully used, you are at a point where you are knit picking and making things out of thin air now and it is getting kind of ridiculous...

Which brings me to your last point. Color mapping is basic in every theme? Well it I'd say not even half of them have all the record options and are colored. I just had a quick look actually and only 4 out of the top 10 themes have it. Why shouldn't I mention it as a feature on my theme? Why should I not let people know? If it is important for me in a theme, it is for someone else too. I really don't understand your logic and why I shouldn't include it in the description.

To be honest, this really felt more like a personal attack than criticism and I have absolutely no idea what triggered it. You really tried to bring me in a position that forces me to publicly explain myself and make me look bad for no apparent reason, whilst you were being a massive (well starts with a D). You could be much nicer and you chose not to be. I welcome criticism but not this... whatever this was. It wasn't not ok. I did still answer for the sake of future readers. I tried to remain polite with my answers, hope I achieved that. This discussion ends here, have a nice day.

It was not my intention to attack you personally, but your description presented these features as exclusive and this bothered me 😉

sticking a paypal donation link onto your theme is in bad taste a lot of guys work hard making themes for free and to improve and help the community in general who like to create and share with others , people have free will  to donate or not donate that is entirely upto them to do so , but youre doing it off the back of theming - that i do not agree with

когда вы видите этот значок, ваша катушка поддерживает воспроизведение !

Это очень интересная и незаурядная работа , но мне кажется, что в вашем описании слишком много пафоса. Многие ваши инновации уже давно реализованы другими авторами. Так же мне кажется. что Вы поставили не совсем корректное условие для появления значкаblob.png.57edd41fddb67b3172eb48b10398d2e9.png , правильнее поставить Temp sensing material, к тому же отсутствие условия Temp sensing material на кнопке включения Реплей это явная ошибка которая может дать возможность включать Реплей на любом профиле. Это только поверхностный анализ. я не тестировал Вашу тему, но я уже вижу явные недоработки. Вам необходимо более глубокое тестирование своих продуктов.  

Прошу прощения если Вы посчитаете мой комментарий  нападение на Вас, но дьявол в деталях. Мне по прежнему нравятся Ваши работы, но имейте больше самокритики.

Удачи!

It's an original theme that I created after hundreds of hours of Theme Designer experience, it's not like the file randomly appeared on my pc. It is the result of hard work whether you see it as a hobby or not. I've also created a mod because I'm a hobbyist, it doesn't mean that I will upload the files for free, although I did for my themes... So, while your view is romantic, I find the idea of not letting people express their potential appreciation by donating extremely unreasonable and demotivating for the creators. It is work that we share for free afterall. I have many more thoughts on the subject that I really don't see the point discussing in a theme's comment section, I prefer to keep it clean for actual theme related comments. I do not know why you selected this theme to point that out since I've see donation links elsewhere too, I'm guessing it is a coincidence... Anyway if you decide to start a topic about this, feel free to invite me in that conversation. I'd love to talk about it more, especially if someone from evolv is involved as well to hear us out.

seems to me. that you have put a not quite correct condition for the appearance of the icon  , it is more correct to put the Temp sensing materialblob.png.57edd41fddb67b3172eb48b10398d2e9.png

You need more in-depth testing of your products.  

I apologize if you consider my comment an attack on you

I did not consider it an attack, but I also do not appreciate the sarcasm. My test results showed that this was the only condition that offered what I wanted for wattage as selected material, I didn't randomly select it out of the available options. I can also tell you that while tests ran smoothly, it did display a non-TC coil as TC on my mod the other day. So the condition in itself is not 100% accurate or I missed something. Therefore I've decided to remove this feature in the next update with the possibility of re-introducing it later on.

Keep in mind that it is not a product since it isn't for sale, I provide my themes for free like everyone else here. If it was for sale, I would probably test it more (than I already did) and update/hotfix it regularly, I am extremely professional. Right now I don't "have to" do anything, I just share my work. Some may love it, some may hate it, so what... Since I've never gotten a single donation, I don't have an obligation to anyone, If that ever changes I may think otherwise. For now this is a theme in version 1.0, the first version of this theme ever released. The fact that everything runs smoothly in such a complex theme in itself is a result of weeks spent just for improving and testing because I'm just that passionate about vaping and gear, that is a huge success in my book.It only has one bug that no one has addressed here btw (but you came close), ok it happens, I found it and I'll fix it. That being said, I am flattered that you hold me in such high standards. I haven't seen people knit picking others' 1st version in that manner, guess I've made a name for myself so I'm not even allowed a single bug now, fair enough I guess. Even evolv devs don't address bugs that often and that's for stuff we actually paid for and version 18 or something 😂. Kind of ironic since I make stuff for free, still nice though. Would love to see the same passion criticizing them since they actually get paid, maybe then we'll see some improvement. We still don't have a virtual screen to test the themes ffs and i've only seen one post mentioning it ever by formula 1. I kinda got carried away here, pardon me for the off-topic.

haven't we all put 100's of man hours in creating themes , i know lets all put a donation tab on our themes it seems the way forward lets have the rest of the community now pay us for our time - hours worked on themes - nobody forced you to join the forum or do a theme  and yes by all means start a thread will be interesting

Я не считал это нападением, но я также не ценю сарказм.

Не забывайте, что Вы читаете переведенный текст, я хотя и очень плохо знаю английский, но проверяю текст перед отправкой. Я вынужден  использовать очень примитивное построение фраз (как ребенок в возрасте 5 лет), по тому, что переводчики далеки от совершенства. Если бы Вы прочитали перевод Вашего текста, Вы были бы удивлены насколько сильно изменена суть.

Мои результаты испытаний показали, что это было единственное условие, которое предлагало то, что я хотел для мощности в качестве выбранного материала

Переключение в Реплей достаточно легко реализовать для любого профиля, это уже реализовано у многих авторов, но поскольку evolv разделило такие вещи как материал катушки и профиль катушки, глупо сопротивляться главному условию Реплей : Temp sensing material

Already shared my views on this, so no point repeating it in a rude way like you are doing. I'd also appreciate it if you weren't trying to put words in my mouth. It is quite clear now that what you are doing here is targeted and a cheap attempt to undermine me. You have no intention of a dialog, you're just trying to throw dirt and force your ideas in an attempt to influence others. Feel free to do your preaching elsewhere, this is a space reserved for inputs related to this theme and you haven't contributed anything in your multiple comments. I've made it clear in my last reply that this in not the place for this.

Do not forget that you are reading the translated text, although I know English very poorly, I check the text before sending it. I have to use a very primitive construction of phrases (like a child at the age of 5 years), because translators are far from perfect. If you read the translation of your text, you would be surprised at how much the essence has changed.

 

Switching to Replay is easy enough to implement for any profile, this is already implemented by many authors, but since  evo lv separated such things as coil material and coil profile, it’s silly to resist the main Replay condition : Temp sensing material

Ok then, I do apologize for that Zark.

That condition did not work when i tested it. You had to have TC material selected if I remember correctly, so at that point an indicator is redundant. I will test again though when i get the time as per your suggestion, thanks for your input.

Это условие не работало, когда я проверял это

Во первых спасибо за возврат к адекватной дискуссии.

Я не смогу подробно объяснить все нюансы (несовершенство переводчика в технических терминах). но я тоже потратил много  времени на переключатель режима Реплей. Моя главная проблема это защита от дурака, я пытаюсь сделать все так. чтобы было невозможно сделать ошибку при выборе любого из режимов. Сейчас не нахожу новых идей, а Вам предлагаю изучить мою тему (экран change resisnanse)
