Yep.
I'm preparing to update ru2b12's Bright Green as well as my own theme... probably for the last time.
Cheers!

It looks like I'm going crazy...
A couple of images, found in the famous plist, are not present in the famous Resources folder, like: glyph_dark_rg_blue_patternlibrary, glyph_dark_rg_blue_pingpong, glyph_dark_rg_blue_random, glyph_dark_rg_blue_forward, glyph_abc_decrease, glyph_abc_rotateleft and button_center_dark_rg.
But Logic Prox 10.4.5 doesn't freeze.
Please, help... or I'll get insane.

You are absolutely right, Chris. Our (mental) health is most important... followed by making music of course.

Can't get mixer Pan, Mute, Solo, Plugins and Sends to work.
I'm guessing because of the way the sped up the mixer gui.
Any ideas?

Even the mixer inserts don't change in non-retina.
I came across entries in the plist with ah new function added: supportsTinting. Maybe that's why.

I'm afraid you are right, fcasoria.
Did they store it in the code? Perhaps for performance reasons? I can't imagine. But still... this will be the end of theming LPX indeed.

Actually a lot of changes still work, just seems to be the mixer won't let you change with tiffs.

That seems to be the case... but where did they hide these images?
I'm puzzled.

You would think if they were trying to cut down on load times, they'd embed all the images, not just some. I know under Windows, you can use resource DLLs (Dynamic Link Libraries) and pack all your images in there. The advantage being the file is loaded all at once and allocated memory according to a table rather than one image at a time. Is there anything similar available under macOS, or Logic? Sorry, I don't know UNIX/Linux well at all.

I haven't installed 10.4.5 yet, so i can't check.

Actually, they had/have a couple of .nib files (for instance for old PlugIns), which are perhaps like DLLs, but amazingly enough the new PlugIns are accessible.

As a matter of fact I use both 10.4.4 and 10.4.5... until...

Matthew just sent out a new 10.4.5 theme and didn't mention any issues. Maybe he found them. I'd be really sad for him if Apple locked out theming. I also feel for him having to redo all these themes with every version though he's no doubt become very facile with the process.

That's great news!
So... it IS possible to mod 10.4.5.
Hopefully we will get a clue after a while.
In the meantime... still searching.

FOUND IT!!!
There is a new framework called "MAGUI.framework". Inside you will find a "Resources" folder and inside that one a "Base.lproj" folder. This one contains the actual images for the mixer. Also within that "Resources" folder a file called "MAGUIAssetMapping.plist". Apparently this is a replacement (partly) for the famous plist we had - and still have - to mod.
It seems that they are gradually preparing for the upcoming upgrade.
Have fun!

Still working on it.
Seems to be defined (partly) within "MAGUIAssetMapping.plist".

EDIT: Found the level meter gradients, Gain reduction and EQ line in "MAGUIAssetMapping.plist" indeed, but still puzzled about the background colours.

Hi, fcasoria, and all theme designers!

I have been like you parsing the new update files for the past few days.
As it already been pointed out, some of the references and source images have been moved to the MAGUIresource framework, however, some UI elements (knobs, meter scale, channels background color, etc...) have been hardcoded in this new update. It means they are drawing images right from the binary file >>> MAGUI.framework/Versions/A/MAGUI.

I was actually working on a major update for the LPX Colorizer, with new drawing code, an affiliate program, and a theme shop website; but this puts the whole thing on pause.

If you want my two cents, the way they currently draw within the code (you can use hopper disassembler to extract classes and functions) tells me it is not optimal at the moment. They had to improve the mixer track number and performances and took a shortcut, but it's possible they bring back the logic of the sources images and entries in the plist in a next update.

Meanwhile, we must be heard and tell them we are not happy that the mixer colors cannot be customized within the app bundle anymore, and that we hope they will bring it back in the next update!!!

Let's do two things:

1. Drop them a message here.

AND/OR

2. Sign the petition with your Name and email. (preferably Apple ID).

With my Apple developer license, I can get support directly from Apple developers. Once we have a significant amount of signatures, I will forward it to them.

What do you people think?

Unfortunately I had come to the same conclusion... gradually.
Indeed, I couldn't find the colors of the mixer and the image for the panner knob for instance.

There are a lot of (functional) issues. Maybe the developers were under pressure for WWDC. On the other hand, I discovered some fragments for a new structure, a lot of (new and unused) images and entries in plists. So, perhaps the next release will arrive soon.

EDIT: I signed the petition with my real name.
Cheers,
Gert J.
