So last night my eyes felt really strained (it was 3am and I turned off all the lights) but then I switched to the Dark theme, and my eyes were thankful for it. But now in the daytime, I actually prefer the default theme. I don't suppose there's a way for it to automatically change between Default & Dark depending on if it's AM or PM? :kaoswt:

Or should I just not be lazy and do it manually?...

@Frostorm Are you talking about the forums or MV?
MV, but now that you mention it I wouldn't mind applying the same logic to the forums lol. I'm on the computer like 18hrs a day heh...

@stramin Whoa, how did you do that? I only have like 3 choices in themes for the forums, and none of them look like that. The only "dark" choice I see is "Swift Dark":

I use a chrome extension called "StyleBot", it let you set a custom CSS for every website.

This is the CSS I used:
CSS:
body, img{
  filter: invert(1) hue-rotate(180deg);
}
the extension let you enable and disable the style with a single click so I use this same CSS for almost all the websites to get a dark theme on the night.

Well, I mainly needed to know if this thread needed to stay here or be moved to Site Feedback. Seeing as you were originally talking about MV, this is where it should be. However, IF it could be done it would need a plugin or something.

sorry for that mlogan

I think this topic belongs here, and I am also interested in find a way to achieve what the OP asks.

In the system registry I see an entry called "themeName" in this path:
Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\KADOKAWA\RPGMV
On the default skin it says "default"

When I change the skin to dark it changes to "dark":

I think a way to achieve this is change this registry entry using a batch file and trigger this batch using the Windows Task Scheduler setting the time when the sun is hiding.

This will not change the skin while you are using the engine but when you launch it, so you should set a time before you usually open the program (or restart the engine).

Maybe there are other ways to do it, but now I can't think of anything else.

Who would think putting a power button on a side of a laptop is a good thing? You want to move the laptop and you suddenly press the button.
The second draft of my script is almost done, and I don't think I'm going to write a third draft. I'll make changes to dialogue here and there, but I'm happy with the series of events the way they are.
How you feel about font and dialogue box changing for every main character while the minor cast and regular npc get their own styles? Too much?
Just found an obviously custom effect (i.e. edited by me) in my resources>sounds folder called "rip jaw off". Dear Lord what is wrong with me as a person that at some point I needed a sound *specifically* for THAT??
(...rhetorical question.)
