Cheers for these edits at least now they are all documented in one easy thread as I was worrying what I'd lose (because i couldnt remember all the edits etc that i had made) when I do the next upgrade
Much appreciated and love the icons and work that you have contributed to this skin.
Keep up the good work and I'll keep an eye on this thread as I love what you've done so far

Just a reminder for myself:
to activate debugging you have to edit addons.xml and set debugging from false to true (©Butchabay)

to make the recently added movies section showing a higher number of items than by default:
Create - in the userdata directory - a blank file named advancedsettings.xml
in this file, paste this code (editing the 500 by the number you want):
This file is independant from XBMC and skins. That means you can change skin and normally even update XBMC, as long as you keep this files in userdata its settings will prevail

EDIT 19/01/12: compressed orange theme is now included in official 2.0.x releases
Here is the final black&orange theme.
Download Backgrounds and XML files UPDATED 31/08/11
Download a changelog to see what I have changed in XML files
PNG files must be copied in the CE2's media folder, XML files in the 720p folder (please make safe copies of original files first, in case you want to go back to default theme)
EDIT: Butcha seems to have found a way to release it as XBT (XBMC Theme) However, I'm not sure it can handles XML…
"Light Theme" must be disabled in order to have the black & orange home menu visible.
For now this is the manual way, maybe Butcha will include this in a separate theme in future release, maybe playing a bit with the files.
I am not skilled in code. some movies views don't have background, same for some dialog prompts. Maybe Butcha when he'll have more time can add here and there some of these backgrounds to make the whole consistent
I use XBMC only for movies and TV Shows, so I don't have any idea about how my theme looks with music, pictures, games etc
Finally, here are some screenshots:

As for textured theme, for now I give up. Above I give you anyway 2 textured home menus that you can use, by downloading and copying the one you want in the "media" folder of CE2
Please backup the original horzmenuback.png before overwriting it!
I give you here my work (whole set) on the brushed aluminum where I stopped it. I'm not very convinced by this, but you are free to play with this. Have fun! http://www.mediafire.com/?ghiqqbwoaidss2k

Since 2.0.6 brought back function of default backdrop image when no fanart was found instead of plain black (hurrah!), I decided to share mine with you.
I did not make it, I just found it on the net and changed the hue of the background from red to Cirrus-orange.
It really looks cool on every view (and particularly with right list stuff).
The full resolution image can be downloaded here:

First of all, thanks for all the contributions you make to this awesome skin.
I have updated to 2.06 and enabled the moviegenres made by yourself.
My questions are, how can I link a genre to one of your genre icons?
And also how do I link a fanart picture to the genre icon?
To all my general movie nfo's I add "All" as genre, to all my ahem!, Adult movies I add "XXX" to the nfo as a genre, this lets me select All as the genre to see just general movies without the adult movies included.
I see in your pack you have included "porn" and "XXX" icons, I just cant get them to show in the genre list.
I manged to do it on 2.05, but dont seem to be able to do it on this update.
I appreciate any help you could offer
