@GlowBall:

Aah man, as I said, you keep on finding new points of view... the problem is they are based on your very personal view of the matter that you still don't want to understand. So, I'll try to simplify things...

> Sony is the street we all follow;
> Theming scene is the land crossed by that street;
> In this land, along that street, there are lots of buildings (websites) and one of these buildings is PS3-Themes;
> PS3-Themes, like all other buildings, is a condo provided with many apartments.

Each one of us here, going down the street with his car (PS3), saw this condo and decided to occupy an apartment.
To beautify/enrich our apartment, we all took a bit of special paint (the script - including all its variants and modifications - and tools) that flows from a common source which is not our property... and even if we change the chemistry of this paint to get new shades of color for our apartment, we will never be the owners.

Now, I don't really care what you do in your apartment: you can lock yourself inside, you can seal the windows, you can break down its walls or even burn it, but one thing's for sure... just because you changed the chemistry of this paint to get new colors, you're not entitled to decide who can use it and/or even prevent others from using it to do the same thing, because the basic elements of the paint are always the same and they all come from a single source.
You keep on saying "my scripts" (ie my paint) and "I don't want anyone to modify them" (ie I don't want anyone to change the paint's chemistry)... but they're not your scripts/paint, and everyone can modify them/change the paint's chemistry to do the same things you did because, as I said, the basic elements of the scripts/paint are the same and come from a single source.
You say you never claimed to be the owner, but you keep on saying "my scripts"... absurd!

And... WHAT?
You dare to tell us to live our lives and not disturb other people's peace?
Hah! That's incredible!
We were living our lives in peace, but one day someone wanted to play at being the king of the castle and started to invade the personal space of someone of us:

- He began to tell others what they should do and how they should do it.
- He helped someone making a copy of something without the owner's permission.
- He put a veto on certain things that are supposed to be common for all.

Oh wait... it was you!
- YOU started telling Faxtron what to do and how to do it in his tutorials...
- YOU helped Vitalogy to make a copy of Audiodeviant's theme without asking him permission...
- YOU decided to prevent the use of a common resource only because Audiodeviant has rightly defended his position on the matter that YOU have caused by helping Vitalogy...

It's a matter of fact, so don't try to deny it by finding who knows what other point of view!
And when we decided to support a friend and tried to reason with you, now it turns out that WE are the ones who do not let others living their own lives?
You are accusing us of disturbing other people's peace???

Holy crap, mate... Have you ever listened to yourself when you say such things?
Unbelievable!
Well, I never cared that much about your attitude, since we all have our own personality, and I always tried to be neutral... but when it comes to defending friends who are part of a community just like me, I really cannot stand certain attitudes, and I now have to agree with anyone says you're an egocentric.
Not to mention the fact you're also proving to be very insolent, going around blathering your hypocrisy and spitting your absurd judgments on others with your statements.
So, you know what?
Feel free to keep on marking the territory around you, I don't care... but you'd better stop pissing on our shoes!!!

@ OPTIMUS

haha back to base one then fella lol. u may of been on this site for a long time mate and I respect that... but you don't own the site, you don't make the rules and it's only a community from you and your allies perception. Yeah your part of the foundations here and yeah your good with words but fact is you haven't actually put the time in to create a tutorial or even create your own style of dynamic theme have you really so you haven't experienced the same things as me.

anyhow the whole "don't want people modify my scripts" thing is cus I asked the admin 3 questions here http://www.ps3-themes.com/foru.....load-rules and part of one of the answers was "If you don't want someone to use something you've created then maybe add that in your theme description and hopefully people will respect it." so I just followed his advice man. So if you like take a good look around this great site and decide if there are changes needed to make it more clear that this is a theming community not a theming website cus afterall all websites are supposed to be very approachable meaning anyone can view where as a community is approachable but with an if attached.

as I'm not going anywhere you will see more tutorials like this (template with encryption) and tutorials without encryption cus you see I'm not the user you think I am.....

I am FREE fella

p.s I hope you enjoyed this tutorial cus I don't recall any appreciation shown from you man

What do you say ? That is the modification of a script created by someone else and you change only a few values there and for that are yours. No man are not yours and I will tell you why again ?

You can't say that the "mustache.js" are yours and no one can make simples moddifications to an achive to create a new "style" from the original and tell the 100% of the code is yours. Simple as it. I said you what you do there and is simple to create the "random" effect you add there two or tree lines in the PSJS script, you change some values there nothing more. To do the "GlideShow" effect the same thing. To do the Slideshow method you only delete the Dynamic part, to create the animated window you only change the dae file for the bg. To "a100miles2go" create the animated script from the original file he did the same as you delete the dynamic part and to change from slideshow to animated the only thing you have to do is dealing with the speed of the animation. And you tell us that are yours and nobody can't use the mustache.js to do new styles here from the original ? Or nobody here can use not only the script the tools that are not yours are extracted from official files from the creators. So you can't tell nobody here what can use because are NOT your property. It's is not simple to understand. Why ? You program the raf tools, no right. So anyone who wanted can use it. And you can came here to change the name of the tool to make it your own. and create a simple "BAT" to follow the paths and came here... ok those tools are mine. Example of this is the raf_pack that you called now raf_builder but is the same raf_pack of all time, one of the tools used for the raf_compiler to "compile" the raf. Yes that tool that you told me you not recommend to use is the compiler for this method now. Sorry but nobody here are a fool to fall in that trick. Knowing this all the users can use the raf tool because no are your tools as you said all the time and the same thing as the scripts used : mustache.js, raf_photo or other modified script for a third. You can program all the "BAT" you want but the important tools to compile are the same as always. Yes this bat simplify the method of drag and drop I know that but for that the tools are not to have yours. Man that script uses the same array secuence, variables, functions, operators, etc in principle with only minor changes to take as yours.

Are you ok this days ?

So with what moral you came here to say who can use the raf tools or the scripts provided by a leak. Ahhh tell me ?

Who are you to tell who is needed in this site and who's not, like you said to Audio ?

Are you the owner of the site for give us a few tips,tutorials or help ?

Tell me who are you ? The creator of the tools and all the scripts leaked. ??? The owner of Sony ?

Man I'm tired of all this, please stop telling to many intolerant words at the same time without sence.

All the users here have the same rights no matter what. So anyone here can use the tools and the scripts because nobody here are the owner of nothing. I told you before but do not want to understand.

BTW : This guy wrote the tutorial and give the tools to do dynamic themes before "a100miles2go" came here with the very first animated theme and not only that "a100miles2go" give us a link to the very first animated theme tutorial. The one I use in that time and was the knowledge I use today to do this because is exactly the same always. Nobody matter who write the tutorial, the method to use and how use the raf tools are the same. Thats to talk only about "a100miles2go" that is not the only one who give us usesfull knowledge. Corwing77 is other and you know that. BTW : This guy is the only one who wrote a tool capable to deal with this and don't came here or to other sites to tell what people can use that tool or not. Not only that give us the first tips, tutorials and knowledge to create dynamics themes. Thats was the tutorial I use to deal with the animated/dynamic method. Only problem is in french and if someone want to follow it have to deal with google translate to understand it, if not know french.Yell

http://www.ps3-themes.com/gami.....theme.html

Please stop this and let work together in peace here for the good of all of us here.

Man, this will be the last time I will be talking of this here. Because I don't want more drama in this thread and in the forum. And please PS3_Themes admin sorry for all this but I can stay quiet went I see some intolerant, dictator arguments and I'm sorry because I was the guy who started this in this thread whit my first message. I think frustrated dealing with to many attacks for long, long time by this guy that are frustrating me to a point that I can't deal with my patience.

Today is with "AUDIODEVIANT" and then who will be your next target to tell him what can use or not and if the user is needed here or not.

Tell me what will be your next USER to bully ??? To tell him that he can't use your "tools". Because you don't only talk about the use of the scripts that is obvious that is not yours 100%, you talk about who can use the tools too, your tools. ??? About your 3 questions... Why you said the people have to respect other peoples works if you are the first that not follow that principle. You did the same with the pop.jsx, with the mustache.js even with the lines.qrc or wave default theme of the ps3 to give you a few examples and you actually continue doing it making modification on other peoples works. With what Moral you can say that ? ...

Yell

@GlowBall:

Yeah, back to base one... and here are the attitude, arrogance and insolence I was talking about.

1) No, I don't own the site: no one here owns it... including you.
2) No, I don't make the rules: no one here makes the rules... including you.
3) No, I never made dynamic themes and/or created tutorials about them: that's simply because I never been interested in that stuff, and because there already were several talented users like you, Faxtron, Ultrama6net1c, Audiodeviant and many others... but, in any case, I made lots of other kind of tutorials, gave countless answers/advice and solved tons of problems very long ago, in order to help a lot of people to start making their own themes. So, I too have put a lot of time and experienced so many things you cannot imagine.
4) Maybe I'm part of the foundations here, but I never claimed to be: I simply did what it was supposed to be done... ie sharing my knowledge with everyone UNCONDITIONALLY and help everyone EQUALLY.
And over time, all the guys that I helped have spontaneously started to consider me a mainstay of this site and/or even a legend. But I never cared that much about it, because my only purpose here (as well as in all the other websites where I was before joining this one) always been the will to convey my passion to others. Nothing more nothing less...
5) Sure I'm good with words... this is simply because I'm objective and I see things from a neutral point of view (also thanks to the lessons I learned from my own mistakes). And when I decide to take the side of someone it's only because I realize that an injustice is taking shape, or is occurring a situation that doesn't benefit anyone (or worse, that benefits only a few people), which is what I always did with many other guys and old friends like Yogosan, F-Rott, Dahl, Adyp, Kalhood and so many others you cannot even imagine.
That's why I tried to reason with you more than once to find a peaceful solution, but you never wanted a solution, you just wanted to start your crusade because you're so blinded by your convictions that you left me no choice but to support friends who were suffering an injustice... and as long as you keep on reasoning like you do, you'll never be able to understand this simple concept.

So, in the light of facts:

1) No one of us owns the site... but you act as if you were the owner, by telling people what should they do and how should they do it.
2) No one of us makes the rules... but you started making your own rules, by deciding who can use or not a common resource with the silly excuse of not wanting to be "affiliated" to someone...
Hah! Too easy not wanting to be affiliated to someone to whom you have wronged, by helping the first idiot wandering around here making a copy of a theme without asking permission right to that person to whom you now don't want to be affiliated (just because he rightly defended his position) and even accusing him to be a bully, after what you've done.
3) I never made dynamic themes or tutorials about them... So, what do you want to prove with your umpteenth and absolutely meaningless statement?
Making dynamic themes is not the only way to be appreciated.
4) Okay, maybe I'm part of the foundations here and many guys started to consider me a mainstay/legend/whatever they want, even if I don't make dynamic themes/tutorials/whatever you say, so... What's the problem?
Wanna be the same, maybe?
Then you should start to be part of the community FOR REAL, by treating and helping everyone EQUALLY, just like anyone else does... that means you should share your knowledge and findings UNCONDITIONALLY, as I said, ie without useless encryptions/secrets/anything else.
Not to mention the fact that when someone finds a new way to get the same things that you got, you should stop telling him not to use "other people's work", because all those who started working on the scripts are perfectly able to get the same things or something new... you're not the only one.
5) I'm good with words for the reasons I told you: on the contrary, I see you keep saying nonsense and this way you're just climbing at straws, in an attempt to find valid points in your favor. But objectively, there are no points in favor of what you've done and you're doing.

Also... Sure, I saw those 3 questions in the same day you asked to the admin... and you've been very sneaky: not only you made a mess with Audio, you've also wanted to save your butt that way!
It is obvious that if you say the admin you want to preserve something, the admin will update the rules according to your needs: very long ago I did the very same thing, because there were many users who "borrowed" icons and other stuff from Yogosan, F-Rott and other friends' themes without asking permission and/or giving credit. And I can agree about that...
But the point is you just wanted to prevent Audio from using the scripts, after he got mad for what you and Vitalogy have done with his theme without asking him permission first: if you had been really interested in protecting your stuff, you'd have asked the updating of the rules from the beginning, not after what happened between you and Audio.

Plus, the rule should have been "I don't want people modify my THEMES" and not "my SCRIPTS": it would have been more plausible, because themes are the result of your creativity and imagination (also known as Intellectual Property) whereas scripts, as well as the tools we all use, are only the means that allow to realize such creativity.
And like I told you many times, you have every right to protect your creativity (themes), but you cannot claim to prevent the use of something that already existed (scripts/tools) which you've only modified to create your themes, and that doesn't belong to you.
Hah! However, thinking about it, the worst thing (or maybe the most fun, but absurd anyway) is that even if the rule were the one I said a moment ago, you would have already broken it even before having asked for it to the admin, given that you did nothing else but taking someone's theme without permission and modify it for someone else... incredible!
And the admin's answer "If you don't want someone to use something you've created"...
That's the point: something you've CREATED, ie your theme (or icons, or moving elements, for example). You created your theme, not the scripts!

And then... "Fact is you haven't actually put the time in to create a tutorial or even create your own style of dynamic theme, so you haven't experienced the same things as me"
Whaaat? What the f***ing hell does it mean?
Just because I don't make dynamic themes and tutorial means that I'm not worthy to be here, or what?
Jeez... Do you ever turn on your brain before speaking? Or you just open your mouth to let the air out?

Last but not least...
Sure, you're free, "fella": as I already said, you're free to keep on marking the territory around you... the important is you stop pissing on our shoes!

@ glowball
I have 2 questions for you

1.) I noticed that the Alpha has a glitch that makes it not want to play all slides IE -- 10 pics choose 10 from the options then it only plays 5 or 7. I have to re-apply a couple of times then it works -- is there a way to fix it or am i doing something wrong

2.) is there a way to modify this script so that the transition becomes a zoom instead --- very new at this --
I have only been reading on creating themes for less then a week now any help would be appriciated

@Bill_Anger
I haven't worked with this theme style personally, so I can't help you with the first question.
For a zoom effect you can use GlowBall's Pro-Slideshow script (doesn't use the alpha channel), or you can use Faxtron's Slideshow Plus (also no alpha channel).
With Pro-Slideshow you can only use up to 7 pics max, every first image is random (the set continues in order from that image), has zoom and fade transitions. If you have more images you can make a Multi Pro-Slideshow. The script can be altered.
With Slideshow Plus you can have up to 15 pics max, no random, Has zoom and fade transitions. The script can be altered.

As I understand it, the scripts use the 'camera' to create the zoom. The Alpha Slideshow doesn't have zoom because the alpha channel will zoom with the rest of the theme which sort of defeats the purpose of the alpha channel in this theme style.

Thanks GlowBall for the tutorial, I really liked the Dead Space one and it got me thinking of a theme to do. Keep up the great work.

GlowBall, what program did you use to create the images in "Dead Space" theme? I was wondering about how you made all images, having the same picture on the right with a curve style for where the other images are at. Thanks!

@Lanes8 > it has to do with the alpha channel. In Photoshop you can create one, but I didn't understand how GlowBall got it to work with this style either. There is also a glitch in this script where the PS3 will pick a blank background instead a theme pic. Faxtron and myself have created an alternative to this called the Ultra SlideSlow that fixes these issues. The fixes are fairly simple, but this script is encrypted so a new one had to be created. I will be posting a tutorial very soon.

Thanks, uLtRaMa6nEt1c! I did find a way even though it takes a bit longer, but when I finally tested it, it worked just as I planed. This seems pretty easy for me, but once you have yours up I'll give that a try.

@Lanes8 > to test for the 'blank' image keep installing the theme over and over more than a few times to see if it happens to you. If it doesn't happen then you're all setSmile
