Wow! Amazing theme! Love it. My only suggestion is to add more backgrounds to alternate.
- 9:07pm EST - December 11th, 2007
Thanks for the kind words ! This is actually the first theme I have done and I have really enjoyed it. I will definately throw in some more backgrounds in future versions. I am hoping to get more input on things I could do to make it better.

Is it possible to have songs, rather than sound effects? If you could get the FFVII soundtrack to play while on the XMB this would be the best theme ever created!

As of now I don't beleive you can. There is a very limited amount of space you can use for audio. I only have 4 diff sounds, each less than 1 sec long, and it already takes up roughly 1/8th of the space available. I will try to research it a bit more though, I am still quite new at this (^_^).
I am guessing / hoping that in the future we will be able to implement real music clips. It would also be really nice if you could create and upload custom fonts =(.

Same. I love the theme and would like to know how to add VAG files and how to code for them in the XML file.

To Mishap and Ali4Chris:
Making the sounds isn't actually too tough. I used PS3ThemeBuilderV2.1. Under the Additional Commands tab there is an option to upload sounds for different actions.
You can find all of the sounds at http://uirpg.com/resources.php?act=browse&sub=genre&cat=sfx but when you DL them they come as .wav files which PS3 Theme Builder doesn't like. PS3 Theme Builder likes " .vag " files ( hehe... .vag ). The only tool I found that can convert .wav to .vag is Awave studio available at www.fmjsoft.com/awframe.html . The free version only lasts 45 days but /shrug. It was really pretty easy and to be honest... I didn't actually open the .xml file at all lol. Ps3ThemeBuilder does it all for you.

Thanks I'll give it a go lol.
- 1:02am EST - December 15th, 2007
ahh finally, i can add sounds to my theme :)

awsom theme big Final Fantasy VII fan
- 4:34am EST - December 19th, 2007
So why is it that no one else can add sound even using that theme builder, also.. who is cooper_b?
- 10:20pm EST - December 19th, 2007
Cooper B is me lol, the guy that made this theme. You can put in sound effects with PS3ThemeBuilderv2.1 as I explained in the post above. You just have to convert them from .wav or whatever to a .vag file using the utility I also linked above =P.
Awave studio available at www.fmjsoft.com/awframe.html

Yes I used mfaudio for the .vag format, I understand that yet when we save the theme and attempt to compile it with the compiler, it gives an error message stating "unkown tag line 'setable'"
- 10:58am EST - December 20th, 2007
hmmm... never encountered that error. Your sound files don't exceed the size limit do they ? Also might wanna try using the program I linked just to see if it works any better.
- 1:22am EST - December 21st, 2007
The problem is NOT the sound files, it's the XML tagline... the compiler doesn't even get to the point of "seeing" the sound files, you can take the path name for the sounds out completely and you still get the same error and just for arguements sake ( wait... are we arguing?, i forgot :( ), I downloaded the sound converter you linked to, same exact thing... everywhere else I go it seems that everyone else has the same problem with the compiler
- 11:16am EST - December 21st, 2007
lol no bro you will get no argument from me =). I never opened an xml file when I made it the app did it all for me. Your using the newest version of PSThemeBuilder ? ( v2.1) cause I think that they just implemented sound in that version.'
If it helps though you can compare my xml for that part with yours and see if there is anything that is suspect...

Thank you for all your trouble, already downloaded your theme, extracted it and examined it... even tried to extract and immediately compile it again to no avail, haha... ah well, Thanks anyway :D
- 9:35am EST - December 26th, 2007
Sorry your having so much trouble. This might be a silly question but you do have he .NET framework 2.0 right ? The fact that the compiler isn't recognizing "setable" suggests some kind of software mis-match or a syntax error. Lemme know if you get it working (^_^)
