ThemeShooterTk 0.08

by HoKaze
ThemeShooterTk is a cross-platform, Python based clone of ThemeShooter made by HoKaze.

It can be run on Windows, Linux, Mac OS X and most modern Unix-like operating systems so long as the following requirements are met:

Python 2.x (Python 2.6 and 2.7 should work fine)

Tkinter (should come with python)

Python Imaging Library, PIL (Tends to be included with python)
PIL: ImageTk Module (on Linux this tends to be kept seperate, look for the "python-imaging-tk" package)

What started off as a quick and dirty clone of the original ThemeShooter has since grown and whilst it may be behind the original and ThemeShooterX, it should hopefully suffice for some basic "themeshots." I do intend on continuing to add to it on the rare occasion I have time.

-Dummy text (with alpha)
-Theme previews
-Screenshot generation
-Replaces missing images (apart from the background) with images from Classic theme, -Dark Water v2 theme OR a custom theme of your choice
-Random bubble placement on both preview and screenshots
-Beginnings of an application database of sorts (possibly expanded later)
-Basic configuration file support for program settings (will be expanded later)
-Simple console output option, for debugging and rough speed checks
-Cross-platform! (Windows-specific bugs fixed)
-Less ugly buttons!
