  • Notes

Brighness filters are only used in "original" and "classic" themes, and only when selecting "defaul color" (color changes every month). Is posible to change the brightness of this themes in XMB Settings/Theme settings/Background/Brighness (normal, -1, -2, -3, -4. -5)

If you apply a theme that contains a background image, and then select "original" or "classic" for the background setting of this theme (to only keep the icons visibles) the background brigness settings are not used

All background images (day and night) are inverted vertically when displayed in XMB

Brightness changes starts from: 03:00---until--->17:00 (day time) and 18:00---until--->02:00 (night time)

  • Speculation

This color setting to apply as a "filter" needs to be stored somewhere :P and probably brightness is stored with it, this is the only code reference we will find to know the exact values used (but the method to apply brighness can be more complicated to understand)... the candidate to contain all this easter eggs is lines.qrc, good hunting :) --Sandungas 07:38, 13 February 2013 (MSK)
