Incredibly simple grey/blue theme-mod I made.

For personal use I threw together a ridiculously basic modification of the Blue theme provided in the Bello post first page. I liked the Blue theme but felt the main banner image was both a little artifact-y and too strong. So I took the original main swish file and completely desaturated it plus lowered the opacity significantly. I think this works better with custom backgrounds on the main menu since it is much more subtle and now complements more colors than having a blue or purple swish.

I don't have any screenshots, sorry! I literally taught myself how to extract, modify, and re-pack a theme just today. Nothing is changed from the Blue theme except the main menu swish and it would only take a second to install and check it out for yourself.

You can download the file here:!hFdxQBBL!E30UYiqOOX...frGoFLbRqM

To install you just copy the file into .xbmc/addons/skin.bello/media/ alongside the Textures.xbt. Then switch the theme under appearance. Note this doesn't come with the Blue theme text colors bundled in that theme.

Thanks a lot all the devs and modders involved in the work I adjusted! I love Bello. Maybe since I learned some of the basics here I'll consider making more Bello themes but for now, enjoy this!

Downloaded and installed Great "light" version of the animation. Finally allowed me to use some wallpapers that I could not before due to the original animation being to saturated. Thank you
