Hi All,

I'm getting close to braving a rEFInd instal on my main machine in hopes of following @itsage s awesome guide and get my AMD card working (without stopping my TB3 5K Ultrafine form working).

One of the big issues for me was how bloody ugly the default theme is. There are other themes out there but it got me thinking - how about an eGPU.oi themed, er theme... I'm a fan of minimalism so this may not be to everyones tastes, but using the Minimal theme as a base and the eGPU logo and colours I created a quick mock.

If there is any interest I will happily finish it off (may do so anyway just for myself).

I'd love to have a custom theme for rEFInd. How does it look with black background like the Mac boot loader?

Cheers @ikir!

Here is a black version, not flat black as I feel flat + ultra minimal flat icons would be too simple, but a tiny bit of a grad on the black...

I would be way down for using that!

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

That looks awesome, but not all of us are Mac users. How about some egpu.io wallpapers (1080p, 1440p, 1600p, 2160p, 2880p and also for the common ultrawide resolutions)?  🙂

This is a little off-topic here, but I didn't want to start a separate thread just yet.

Give your Node Pro a second Thunderbolt3 controller for reliable peripherals by re-using a TB3 dock (~50$).

@eightarmedpet I think more or less the same style of minimalistic backgrounds would work nicely, just with a larger logo in the middle. Maybe make the background some kind of faint pattern if it adds something. Another idea would be to take the base, then make a red and a green themed AMD/NVidia variant for the fanboys Smile
