I still can't believe you need to root Android to get a screen capture. Not user friendly at all.

Custom themes?

Postby grebulon2 » Wed Mar 29, 2017 8:09 am

  1. Is there a way to use custom themes on a non-rooted phone?
    Does waze look up for a theme somewhere under the /sdcard directory?
  2. I noticed that in v4.21.0 the theme structure changed (again...) Is it stable now or should we expect more changes?

Please, could someone post instructions on where to put the custom theme on a non-rooted android device for version 4.21.
I'm trying to replace the night theme of the default theme. Used to have a rooted device and I just replaced the skin_values.night.lua file. Now I can't do this anymore.
People keep posting links to that old wiki page (https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Custom_color_schemes) that doesn't seem to be working anymore.

Kind regards.


Hi,

only small pics can be uploaded (250kB), but after seeing your screenshot - it might help to turn off the Display Auto Mode.

It's easy:
My Waze (bottom left key) -> Go to Settings -> Quick Settings -> Mode (->Day).

In general, Display Setting are also there to play with your Map Color Scheme.

Regards,

Greg

Hello folks!

Does someone managed to upload 4.0 color schemes to IO 9 system?
I can get to waze file system.
Made a folder skins and put color scheme there.
But still nothing appeared in Waze app...

Do I still miss something?

BR,

Hi,

I tried this night scene:
https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/User:PesachZ ... 015_colors

Now I'm not sure what that this was 4.0 version

But I also didn't find any already existing color schemes in there.

May be some one who managed to get working 4.0 under IOS9 4.0 could send a screenhot of expanded folder list? May be I'm messigng there...

BR,

Zilka

Hi,

I tested also those 4.0 schemes by Dave. But still no success :(

Do I put those files in correct place?

BR,

Zilka

Am now on Waze 3.9.3 for android and have reinstalled my custom color schemes ;)
Thought I would have a play with Ferry settings.
When I remove the comments, waze will show ferry routes but no matter what color settings I use, the ferry routes seem to use the Streets color settings.

My current Ferry settings are:
# Ferry

Ferry.Class: Road
Ferry.Color: #0000ff
Ferry.Color1: #0000ff
Ferry.Color2: #0000ff
Ferry.Declutter: 1500
Ferry.Delta1: 0
Ferry.Delta2: 0
Ferry.Thickness: 1

Which should show as a blue line but it looks like this.

On the other hand, my railway settings which are very similar, work perfectly.

Railroads.Class: Road
Railroads.Color: #000000
Railroads.Color1: #000000
Railroads.Color2: #000000
Railroads.Declutter: 1500
Railroads.Delta1: 0
Railroads.Delta2: 0
Railroads.Thickness: 1

Are ferry colors supposed to work or are these still in progress?
