This is something JezzX said he was making but I couldn't wait. This mod will allow you to have individual control over the blade, gamercard, header/rss, context menu, and button/info text colors. All you have to do is open includes.xml and you will see this at the top
QUOTE
<!-- Begin Text Color includes(FF000000=Black/FFffffff=White) -->

<include name="BladeTextColor">
<textcolor>FF000000</textcolor>
</include>

<include name="HeaderTextColor">
<textcolor>FFffffff</textcolor>
</include>

<include name="Button/InfoTextColor">
<textcolor>FFffffff</textcolor>
</include>

<include name="GamercardTextColor">
<textcolor>FFffffff</textcolor>
</include>

<include name="ContextMenuTextColor">
<textcolor>FF000000</textcolor>
</include>


Then all you have to do is change FF000000 or FFffffff to what ever you want.


I also included a submenu that has some various features in it but the most important one is the reload skin option, so after you change text color all you have to do is reload the skin instead of restarting. Just hit black to bring up the submenu. Here's a picture of the submenu

If you noticed anything I missed let me know, I got tired and frustrated half way through this. I spent time checking stuff though, but I don't have internet to my xbox so there's some stuff I couldn't check out.

Download Here

P.S. Here is a list of color codes

Thanx, I am actually tired from doing this. It was very repetitive and mind numbing, just changing soooo many lines of code. It was worth it I think.

To anyone who has tried this, let me know if the text in weather, movie/games trailers, x-link kai, or really anything else that requires an intenet connection changes like it's supposed to. I can't test these cause of my refusal to let dialup touch my laptop or xbox.


P.S. I forgot that the LoginScreen.xml in there is modified(other than the text). It has a delay on it. It is to go with the startup video. I can't believe I forgot about that. I don't have an original one either, I lost all of my stuff on my laptop recently cause I had to format it. Sorry.

Notice the theme I am using in the picture. It is staying there for a long time. So thanks for that.

Your theme and my extreme boredom fueled this mod. I never even had the desire to have white text till I got your theme, then I started to change the text to white then I rememberd the post that JezzX put up and I just figured that I could do it to. His will probably be alot sweeter when it comes out, especially scince he is gonna have a script to go with it.
