    I'm using OSMDroid 4.1 library from @warwound and the Mapsforge vector tilesource
    everything works fine until I set a render theme, like so
    Dim InputStream1 As InputStream
    InputStream1 = 
    File.OpenInput( File.DirAssets    , "osmarender.xml")
    All I get is a blank grid, no error messages

    The render theme is
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <rendertheme xmlns=
    "" xmlns:xsi=""
    " renderTheme.xsd" version="1">

        <!-- matches all ways with a 
    "highway=trunk" or a "highway=motorway" tag -->
        <rule e=
    "way" k="highway" v="trunk|motorway">
            <line stroke=
    "#FF9900" stroke-width="2.5" />

        <!-- matches all closed ways (first 
    node equals last node) with an "amenity=…" tag -->
        <rule e=
    "way" k="amenity" v="*" closed="yes">
            <area fill=
    "#DDEECC" stroke="#006699" stroke-width="0.3" />

        <!-- matches all nodes with a 
    "tourism=hotel" tag on zoom level 16 and above -->
        <rule e=
    "node" k="tourism" v="hotel" zoom-min="16">
            <symbol src=
    "file:/path/to/symbol/icon/hotel.png" />
            <caption k=
    "name" font-style="bold" font-size="10" fill="#4040ff" />
    and comes from
    I see another thread some years ago having difficulties with a custom render
    keen to know if it was resolved or anyone has been able to achieve this

    Just stumbled on this myself, so I don't know if you allready found the answer and the question is stil relevant.

    I also did not manage to get the above Rendertheme working, and indeed, a blanc screen with no Errors. I think thats probably because Mapsforge handels Errors internally.
    And did not know where to put the symbols and patterns folder as this is required in the above theme : <file:/path/to/symbol/icon/hotel.png" />

    What works however is to copy and edit the rendertheme that is allready present within the Mapsforge library.
    I have succesfully added Cycling nodes for the Netherlands to it.

    You can find the original Rendertheme 'osmarender.xml' inside the jar when you extract its contents (OSMDroid_4_1_MapsForgeTileSource\assets\rendertheme\osmarender.xml)
    You can then load your new rendertheme with the code you allready supplied

    Dim InputStream1 As InputStream
    InputStream1 = 
    File.OpenInput(File.DirAssets, "my-osmarender.xml")

    Kind regards,
    DonManfred and jamesnz like this.
