Looks you are having fun!
I think the round colo(u)red [M-S-R] "Realtek looking Audio jacks was good idea.

- Right click on the transport
- Select "Center Transport Controls"

I'll take a look at some point to see how to make the above steps unnecessary.

I went through several versions before I got to that one.

Just found out about that theme and I must it's really nice.

I had some issues with it though. I'm not a themer so maybe you can tell me how to fix this.

-Transport bar text shift: Fixed using "Center Transport Controls"
-Cursor disappearing in the arrange window because background is the same color.
-Selecting a track makes it way too bright (might be a matter of taste but a selection makes the track fluorescent)

Maybe there's a quick way to fix this manually. If so, I'm all ears!

Also, let's say I want to get into some basic modding, would it be complicated to just change the color in the meters? As in replacing the blue/yellow grading to some other colors.

@ Herr Nox

Transport bar text shift:
- move the theme to another folder and unpack it (unzip with WinRAR, 7-zip, etc.).
- move the unpacked file and folder back to the ColorTheme folder.
- open the folder and find the RTCONFIG.TXT file and open it.
- go the bottom to find the Reaborn layout.
- find the margin line and change it to the following and hit 'save':
set trans.status.margin [10 0 10 2 0.5]

If the theme is already loaded in Reaper, then reload it.
verify the Center Transport Controls is unchecked.
if checked, unchecked it and cycle reaper between fullscreen and a smaller window mode.
The text will no longer be centered, but does not get pushed off either.
I will possibly update the theme in the future, but it will be some time before that happens.

Cursor disappearing in the arrange window:
Not sure why you're having this issue, My cursor is black on a light gray arrange background and easy to see.
If you're using a custom cursor, try changing to a darker cursor.
Alternatively, you can open the Theme tweak window (go to Actions and type 'Theme') and adjust the background color.
look for these 2 entries:
Track Background (odd tracks)
Track Background (even tracks)

Selecting a track makes it way too bright:
adjust the brightness on the following files:
mcp_bgsel.png
tcp_bgsel.png


Meter Colors:
open and edit the following files in your graphics app:
meter_strip_h.png
meter_strip_v.png
meter_strip_v_rms.png

Thank you very much for the info!

As for the cursor, it's probably some setting from a previous theme I installed.

Default lcs default 4.0

Man...could you add the traditional Green >yellow>red for clipping meters ? I really love this theme but the bluish to yellow color meters...idk it takes off the pro looking. Another thing is the tint track bg color are really bright and way different than the media colors which are pretty much the correct saturation you are selecting. That forces me not using the color strips. In the other hand ...the track label bg color is too dark. Again not the correct color Imo selecting from the pallette. This are the only cons with this theme. Everything else looks awesome.

for the TCP or the MCP?
Unfortunately, either way, not sure I can do anything about that without it impacting other elements in the theme that will then also need "adjustment"
This would require more work than I want to put into this theme at the moment.

The track labels are like that in the actual Default 4.0 theme.
Unfortunately again, changing this would likely require changing other elements to balance the theme and would be more work than I want to put into this theme at the moment.
