The following information has been provided by Brandon (SoundSpectrum).

How to Create and Save Custom Themes

You should porn Categories and Themes using the G-Force user interface whenever possible. G-Force users can clone or porn Themes and Categories outside of G-Force using the following steps.

To porn a Category or Theme manually:

1) Close and exit G-Force and the host player (iTunes, etc).

2) Using a text editor, open the Theme or Category file for editing. Theme files are located in the Theme directory of the G-Force user data directory and Category files are located in the Categories directory.

3) WARNING: Be conscious of punctuation, spacing, and, quotation marks in Theme and Category files or else G-Force can crash!

To clone a Theme or Category:

1) Close and exit G-Force and the host player (iTunes, etc).

2) Use the OS to duplicate the Category or Theme file. The newly cloned filename can be anything since the Category or Theme title is stored inside the file, but you should rename the file appropriately.

3) Using a text editor, open the newly cloned file and porn CategoryTitle/ThemeName field to the desired name. WARNING: Be conscious of punctuation, spacing, and, quotation marks in Theme and Category files or else G-Force can crash!

We put together the following two videos for folks out there that want to dive into creating their own custom themes in G-Force, Aeon, and WhiteCap. I think it will help answer your questions.

In this demonstration, we'll cover G-Force configs (e.g. waveshapes, colormaps, flowfields, particles), and how to create custom themes in G-Force.

In this demonstration, we'll cover renaming configs and custom themes, as well as locking and unlocking configs and themes.

Many thanks to Brandon.
