GuiKit2dlta for Mac1.1

22 September 2005

Convert ShapeShift guiKit files to dlta files.

What is GuiKit2dlta for Mac

GuiKit2dlta is a simple REALbasic application that works together with GuiKitty (http://www.unsanity.org/archives/000314.php) to convert Shapeshifter's GuiKit files to working dlta files.
It does this by extracting the Extras.rsrc, Finder.rsrc and Preview.tiff generated by GuiKitty and add's a small customizable themescript file to the mixture, then saves them all in one directory and renames-bundles it as a .dlta file. All this can be done by hand aswell, but hey! you're on a computer, things should be automated!
Now available for every OS!! (Aslong as the Guikit originally supports your OS version)

What's new in GuiKit2dlta

Version 1.1:
  • Added editable version field so you can fill in your own system version.
  • Other minor changes.

It's so simple it ... doesn't work. No help from the ReadMe which is just a repeat of the "How cool it is" blurb on the Website. No other documentation, no Help files. It opens to a small windows with "Select Theme Variant" button. I clicked on that and navigated to my collection of ShapeShifter style GUIkits. All files are greyed so I can't select any of them.

This is absolutely what I'm looking for. I can't use shapeshifter because I'm running OSX86; themechanger works perfectly. Thanks for this!

thanks, this is exactly what I've been looking for. seems to work fine. this really isn't the forum for Unsanity fanboys to get defensive and whine, I wish someone would delete those postings. I don't want to get into it here, but I've paid the $20 and I don't want to use Shapesifter or APE. the money is not the issue. do a quick Google search and you'll see why people want this.

go ahead i'd say, if you can you should this is just a build to make it easier for people who can't or just won't use shapeshifter for one reason or another, it's not forcing anyone to go and use themechanger, just helps making it easier to do so XP ah well..

GuiKit is indeed much saver for the system, but if you somehow can't or just won't pay up $20 for that awesome program, this is just another way to still be able to use the GuiKit themes. Note to everybody: be warned when using themechanger, i haven't had problems yet, but it can seriously mess up your computer

.dlta themes are still just a hack, it's replacing system resources with new ones... if something goes wrong you'll be reinstalling your system. Panther half way breaks this way of installing themes on Mac OS X, a number of things are limited to system hard coded specifications. ShapeShifter and .guiKit format is the way to go if you want safe and easy.

Excellent! Now we don't have to pay money to use free themes on an OS that already supports themeing (though unofficially). Let alone avoiding the bloat and instability that comes with using some 3rd party app to patch your system. Thanks guys!

Why does this exist? I don't see the purpose. Unless you're one of those freeloaders that won't spend $20 on a piece of awesome software.
