I am playing around with colors for 9.0.4... I like that I can dim the pads cause they are just generally too bright for me. I made the white ones a dim amber and that makes the wide range of variation less obtrusive. I'll likely use that when someone figures out 9.0.5

I have the same issue. Not working as mentioned in the OP :cry:

Those bright pads are terror for the eyes indeed. At least I will be less sleep deprivated when I'm not doing anything in the dark anymore.

When you are editing the SkinDefault.py file (not currently working for 9.0.5) you can dim the pads like this:

This would be Amber pads (orange)
NoteScale = Rgb.AMBER

This would be one step dimmer
NoteScale = Rgb.AMBER.shade(1)

This would be 2 steps dimmer
NoteScale = Rgb.AMBER.shade(2)

I'm not on my Mac right now, but do I only need to get the 9.0.5 SkinDefault.pyc file and run it through a python decoder so we can start customizing colors again in 9.0.5?

I would love to adopt the colour scheme from Because789's Parameter Masher M4L device. That's some beautiful palette choice right there.

Might delve into this modding malarkey if only I can drag myself away from actually playing the damn thing

Ok, I've got a new version of the SkinDefault.py file for 9.0.5. To coin a developer phrase, "Works on my Push" :D

https://github.com/dreznicek/AbletonLive9_SkinDefault/blob/9.0.5/SkinDefault.py

WARNING: Make sure you copy your existing SkinDefault.pyc to a safe location BEFORE you drop the .py file in the directory just in case you need to go revert back or things get wonky. I would even back it up to a directory called 9.0.5 somewhere so you had it versioned out as you upgrade.

Enjoy!

I'm thinking about giving it a try. Using Text Edit on a Mac, after copy and pasting, I have to format the text to Plain Text?
Then when saving, I select Unicode (UTF-8)? Sorry..

I didn't select Unicode in Sublime. I just opened, edited, and saved.

I thought the file has to be saved as Plain Text? Just doing a File Save, saves it as Rich Text.. If it works for you then I guess it doesn't matter. Thanks.

It is not supposed to be dropped in through textedit? No wonder it is not working for me.

Guess i have to read up on that programming wookie language stuff.

on a Mac, use TextWrangler. it is a text editor for coding and won't mess with your file types. also it understands Python code and will make it look purdy.

and it's free.

works for me too - many thanks drez!

curious, though, what you used to decompile the code (never know when i might need to tackle something like this again). my version of uncompyler only works on python 2.7 code, which the remote scripts were evidently not written in.

man i spent so long using my custom color scheme that i forgot how egregious the white-calibration on the LEDs is. you'd think that if their whites were so inconsistent they wouldn't put white buttons front-and-center in the design!

the key to making your push look beautiful : USE ANY COLOR BUT WHITE

my current seapunk scheme:

I know squat about text editors, coding and formatting and don't want to make a mess for myself.

Can I open Text Edit, paste and save without selecting any formatting or selecting any save as file type (Plain Text) Doing this will save it as Rich Text. Is this what worked for you? Or as I said above, paste to Text Edit, reformat and save as Unicode. I'm good at flucking things up and just want to cover myself without creating a mess. Also, if need be and you want to revert, is it as simple as deleting the edited file and replacing with the saved default? Sorry, and thanks.
