[REQUEST] Post your computer specs info you use with Theme Creator

Hi everyone!

 

Over time it seems like several forum users have encountered problems running Theme Creator on their computers, such as slow or not responding UI response. Such problems could be due to computer specs or something else.

The development team for the tool is aware of some potential issues with performance and planning fixes in coming updates.

 

In the meantime, I thought we could gather your computer specs info you use with Theme Creator.

 

When you post your specs info, please use the following format:

 

Computer hardware

  • Processor type: 
  • Processor architecture: 
  • Processor speed: 
  • Number of processor cores: 
  • Amount of installed RAM: 

Software

  • Operating system:
  • Operating system architecture:
  • Operating system version:
  • Java architecture:
  • Java version:

Does Theme Creator work with the above specs without problems?

Yes/No

Re: [REQUEST] Post your computer specs info you use with Theme Creator

Here's my computer specs info that works for me.

 

Computer hardware

  • Processor type: Intel i7-4600U
  • Processor architecture: 64-bit
  • Processor speed: 2.70 GHz
  • Number of processor cores: 2
  • Amount of installed RAM: 8 GB (available: 7.90 GB)

Software

  • Operating system: Windows
  • Operating system architecture: 64-bit
  • Operating system version: Windows 7
  • Java architecture: 32-bit
  • Java version: JRE v8 update 25

Does Theme Creator work with the above specs without problems?

Yes, in general. Sometimes the UI may be slow in updating, e.g. the colour item in the resource navigator list, but nothing too painfully slow to the point where the tool & Photoshop CC 2014 are unusable.

Computer hardware

  • Processor type: Intel Core i5-2400 
  • Processor architecture: x64
  • Processor speed: 3.10GHz (3.40GHz in Turbo)
  • Number of processor cores: 4
  • Amount of installed RAM: 12GB

Software

  • Operating system: Windows
  • Operating system architecture: 64 bit
  • Operating system version: Windows 10 Technical Preview
  • Java architecture: 64bit
  • Java version: Version 8 Update 40

Does Theme Creator work with the above specs without problems?

Yes, perfectly. It crashes from time to time and it always creates a hs_err_pid15772 notepad document, but I believe that's due to it being used on Windows 10 TP and not on a stable and commercially released version of Windows. At any rate, none of those things affects the performance of the program itself.

The only problem really is working along PhotoShop.

NO, it's painfully slow. Even loading the window to choose a color. I understand my MacBook is quite old, but I can run Xcode without so much pain.
