Rainbow Dash GC Theme by Julien12826 Rainbow Dash GC Theme by Julien12826
Image may differ from the actual theme.
"What I loved even more than speed... was WINNING!" -Rainbow Dash

Yet again, a new theme. It's my fifth and it's 20% cooler than all the previous themes. It's Rainbow Dash and I must say, this one turned out really well. This time all of the images were made by GuruGrendo and he did an A-MA-ZING job in creating them.

It is pretty nice.... but one problem - retina mac 5k display. That thing is so huge that it kinda left some imperfection to the left side.... I like the gradient, could you edit the theme so that the image stretch the whole screen? Thank you so much! Then again, this IS the perfect rainbow dash theme out there!

How on earth did you manage that? ._.
I also notice that the cutie mark repeats itself on the taskbar. This happens to be the first theme on which we noticed that problem so we already went WAY beyond 1920x1080 to cover the most common displays at the time. (I think we doubled those numbers)

Sadly, I deleted all the MLP GC Themes folders I had, so I'm gonna have to disappoint you. We decided back then that we couldn't possibly cover all monitors, so we planned to cover the most common ones instead. That means that people like with cinema screens for monitors are drawing the short straw.

The least I can do is thank you for your interest. If it bothers you too much, I'm afraid you'll have to find another theme or create one yourself (It's not that difficult), since I have stopped doing so.

I can also provide you with a few links I used at the time to help me create my own themes: 

Online Theme creator: www.themebeta.com/chrome-theme…
Theme creation guide: code.google.com/p/chromium/wik…


I believe they changed the websites quite a bit, but they should still prove useful. The theme creator simply mashes together image files, which you provide, into a theme and allows some freedom with colours. It always shows a preview and you can see what you're changing there as well (mouseover makes turns the subject of change into bright red. 

If you hold onto the manifest.json file, you can upload it to the theme creator and edit from there if the need arises.

And lastly, if you need a huge wallpaper, I've got just the thing: julien12826.deviantart.com/art…
You can also use this in your custom theme if you want. Ofc, credit where credit is due would be much appreciated.

How do I upload the manifest.json to the theme creator? I do have your rainbow dash theme installed and I could pull up the files...

Hmm... They may have removed that feature. I used to be able to upload either a .zip file or .json in the last panel so I could edit my themes. If I read what the manifest.json does now, you may need the whole .zip folder (including the manifest.json) to actually upload the whole theme to the theme creator. Maybe the upload button, the one with the floppy disk+up arrow, can help you with that. They changed it so you need to log in now. I'm afraid I can't help you beyond this, because this is all new to me as well.

i managed to get it, but when i open a new tab in google chrome, it doesnt show everything in list form like in your pick, instead the google search bar is blocking dashie's face!

how fix?

Julien12826 Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Sadly, this was only possible in an older version of Google Chrome. The newer version forces a google search bar and a recent tabs area upon you. They also moved the "Made by" icon to the right side, which is the one thing that annoys me the most (since all the vectors are on the right side).

I'm sorry to say that I have't found a way to fix this.

Well, it's rather simple. It's not a crx to begin with. The download is an immediate install, so once downloaded you have to theme installed and ready for use.

It's the angle. You're looking at the inner side of the leg.

Well, that certainly looks better than our attempts. At some point we had to conclude it was the inner leg, but when I look at this I gotta agree with ye. Maybe I'll fix it at some point.

Julien12826 Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Depending on the background most of my themes fit from 1280x720 to 1980x1080 with the exception of Luna and Daring Do, of which the latter has a downloadable sizes set in the description. It's still up to testing whether is actually fits or not, but you can always "undo" right after installation.

Will Dashie's cutie mark be added to this at some point in the future? It'll make it just that little bit more awesome ;)

No, it wasn't in the screencap we made so it won't be in here.
Plus, I tried adding it once. I couldn't seem to make it look right, so we decided on leaving it as it is.

To compensate for what you can' t see there, I suggest you take a look in at the toolbar :meow:

Hmm, sry. I can't accept such requests atm.

But, I know :iconsmockhobbes: and he is a better artist than I am when it comes to drawing stuff and I'm pretty sure he's willing to take requests.
If it's vectors I suggest you go to :icongrendopony: again, although he usually traces only.

Love the theme but can't seem to figure out how to install it :( I went to the how to and it tells me to click on the "Add to Chrome" button on the details page of the theme however, that button is missing... help please?

Chrome webstore was updated. There's a blue button on the top right called "Choose Theme", you need that one. If that doesn't work I can send you the zip and instructions to manually install it.

And people won't notice it's a pony theme from a distance. And when they get closer and find out it's too late so they've already concluded they are looking at a blue, rainbow maned pegasus :D

Glad you like it ;3

I may be an idiot, but how do you get the Chrome layout that you have, with links instead of the big boxes? They are ruining the picture :(
For whatever reason I can't find any "How to" on this..
Looks good though, using it anyways =)
