Darth Vader ambience

Your rating: None Average: 5 (8 votes)

If you chose the Dark Side of the Force this is the right ambience for you! It features a wallpaper and a complete set of custom sounds from the movie.

For Sailfish OS 2.0+.

After the installation, go to your home screen, swipe from the top to open the ambience panel and tap on 'Darth Vader' to apply it.

This is just fan made, unofficial stuff, I am not linked anyhow with Lucasfilm nor Disney. All the trademarks, trade names, images and sounds belong to their respective owners.

Build on the Jolla thanks to Schturman http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?t=92963.

Hi fravaccaro,

have you forgotten to upload the updated ambience or is the version incorrect? Warehouse app hints for update but can't find it.

Thanks in advance.

I'd uploaded an updated version but I discovered there was something wrong and I removed it.

More info at https://together.jolla.com/question/109688/bug-in-packaging-an-ambience-...

Sorry for the inconvenience.

[EDIT] Problem fixed.

Oh dear, copyrighted materials (audio) used in your ambience?, not cool.

fravaccaro's picture

I guess this is some kind of "fan art". If Disney ever wanted, I would put it down.

Well, that of course, is up to you. You do realise admin will remove the app if violation of copyright is detected?, I should know, I've had apps removed for the same reasons, I'm only letting you know, so you don't make the same mistakes I made and yes, the apps I uploaded, were removed long ago, in a galaxy, far, far away.

Thanks for your advice, I genuinely don't know how to cope with these situations since, as you may know, development of any kind is not my main activity in the community :) I thought there would've been no problems as themes based on movies, tv series or whatever are commonly available on other platforms.

Hi, looks very amazing (small indicators in top corner :) ). Is it compatible with patches as Meecast widget, Date & Network, etc?

fravaccaro's picture


Sure it is :)

Thanks, but

starwars-agenda.mp3 seems to be invalid in 1st build...

fravaccaro's picture

I may have found and fixed the issue. Let me know if it works for you now.

Moth's picture

Ah, no. :(

It doesn't play with standard codec, though it works with 3d party apps.

btw: do we really need executable flag for the whole dir? :-p

Thanks for your effort! :)

fravaccaro's picture

It's kinda weird, the former agenda mp3 file was encoded with MPEG 2, I encoded it in MPEG 1 (as the other files). On my Jolla it works both on notifications and via the standard ambience sound selector, but maybe it's because I installed addition codecs. Can you encode the file in an output readable by your Jolla?

Well, I don't know, but the default Jolla ambiences have those permissions, so I thought I should have set them in the same way.

[EDIT] if you're testing it with an example agenda event, please consider that the reminder occurs only if you set it minimum 2mins from your current time.

Your file is 32000 Hz, Mono, 48 KBit/s. Won't play with standard codec.

Tested with 44100 Hz, Stereo, 128 KBit/s. (same as starwars-im.mp3 for example). Plays flawlessly.

I replaced the old file for now. Couldn't be better... May the force be with you! :-)

fravaccaro's picture

Now it should be fixed :) Thanks for helping in finding it out!

Moth's picture

Yes, now it's perfect... :)
