Ribbon mClock Skin V2 by chrisbanks2 Ribbon mClock Skin V2 by chrisbanks2
PLEASE FULLY FOLLOW THE STEPS BELOW, OR IT WONT WORK

After a few requests from my original ribbon mclock [link] I decided to make a updated version with black and white clocks, and a selection of different colour ribbon overlays.


How to:
Install mClock from the market.
Create a folder in the root of your SD card called 'mClock'.
Extract the .zip content into this folder.
Add mClock widget on your homescreen.
Hit "Xml Template" in the mClock settings.
go to /sdcard/mClock/RibbonClockV2/ and select desired white or black clock .xml file.

To change the colour of the ribbons, open up the .xml file of the clock/calander you want to change and on the line
<Image Image="... red_overlay.png replace red with desired colour.

Colour options:
black
blue
lightblue
green
purple
white
red
no

More colours available on request.
If there are any issues (and there probably will be!) please let me know so they can be fixed, thanks!
The overlay (the ribbons) may be incorrectly positioned on different resolution devices. Only tested on 480x800.
Can't confirm if layout will always be right.

I recommend a 2x1 Widget for the clock, and 1x1 for the calendar for best alignment of overlay. Can then be resized using launcher.


Original clock .PSD came from here: [link]

Make sure you're using a 2x1 widget for the clock.
Bearing in mind these where designed back when 800x480 was the standard resolution, so may not b working as well on larger phones

Try editing the .xml text. Wherever it mentions sdcard, change it to your location

open up the .xml file in a text editor and change the line is24hour="true" to false.

Hey man.....

First of all, everything you've done so far is first class. However, I can't seem to get your ribbon clock v2 to show properly. The background won't show on my home screen. I have a droid rzr maxx running the new ICS OTA. Any suggestions? Thanks for the help. And, yes, the skin was extracted to sdcard/mClock/RibbonClockv2. LOL! Thanks for these and all the effort sir.

amazing!! one question tho, how do you change it to a 12hr clock? I changed the part that says is24hour="true" in the xml file as I think this is what controls the 12hr or 24hr display. My time has changed to a 12hr display but the white overlay backgroud didn't resize properly. any ideas on how to change it?

Using a 2x1 widget?
you did the right thing to change the 24hr clock.

could you please tell how can I center the 1x1 calendar?

chrisbanks2 Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2011
Using a custom launcher you can resize the widget, so it centres.
If not you could try a 2x1 widget for it, but that can sometimes lead to the ribbon being miss positioned, but worth a try if you don't use a custom launcher..

Most custom launchers allow you to resize widgets by press and hold on the widget.

I've used ADW launcher, and LauncherPro with no issues on a HDPI device.

What resolution is your device?

Try increasing your grid size of the launcher to something big like 9X9 if you are still having issues.

Love this Mod, is it possible to get a Pink ribbon for us ladies (and guys that like pink).

This ok? [link]

Rename to something like pink_overlay.png, put it in the overlay older, and change the .xml as in description.

You want calendar aswell?
