Darkmode for Darkradiant

Recommended Posts

Now that Windows has (finally) implemented a dark mode is it possible to integrate that into Dark Radiant?

 

A lot of my mapping is usually done late at night and the bright white background of dark radiant is quite blinding, now that Windows has a dark mode it's even more noticeable. If it's not possible to integrate the windows version of this is it possible to theme or change the white areas of DR to be much darker?

 

Here is a comparison shot between DR and the new dark mode explorer

And here is my very quick paint mockup of what DR could look like

As far as I can see, the wxWidgets toolkit doesn't allow for much (if any) explicit control over theming, but just tries to emulate the native platform theme.

 

So the question is, which version of wxWidgets is going to support the Windows dark theme. It seems the the latest release is introducing initial support the dark theme on macOS, but I don't see any mention of Windows. Maybe this is already supported in an older release (but still newer than the one DR is currently using), but it's also possible that they haven't addressed Windows at all yet.

I am using f.lux for quiet a while now, which may be of help until something changes in that regards (if it changes, of course). Although I have to admit that besides the practical reasons the dark look definetely has something to it.

I definitely second this. I've been using f.lux for years now and it definitely helps reduce eyesores when on the computer at night.

Windows 10 has f.lux sort of built in now. You can just enable its Nightmode and adjust color temperature etc.
