GCB Dark theme

Discussion of tools and resources for game developers

Post » Thu Mar 27, 2014 1:34 pm

Here's a theme that I've spent far too long tinkering (procrastinating) with:

edit: I've changed it to be super minimal

> no outlines
> no event lines (I don't believe i've ever looked at these)
> no object|event separators
> muted clutter

Image

also check out the customized top bar, get rid of the ribbon and maximize your screen space
You're a pro now, son

right click > save as > ...\Program Files\Construct 2\themes
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/53374990/Misc%20C2/GCB%20Dark%20Minimal.xml

close and re-open event sheets to see changes

I use it with 'Visual studio 2012 Dark' UI style

The only issue I have with this is the "Add event" and "Add action" . They're too dark for me. How would I go about changing that?

@alvarop, you don't need them.

a = add action
e = add event
c = add condition
b = add blank event
q = add comment

but if you can't handle the unprecedented power of keyboard shortcuts, you can just modify it in 'edit colours'
