newbra Wrote:Excellent, looking forward to this myself. Love the weather icon which is exactly how and where I wanted to implement it but didn't for lack of proper icons.
I cheated a little when it came to the weather icons. I grabbed them from the Boxee skin. Down the line, I'll probably go about creating a set from scratch though to keep things kosher.
newbra Wrote:2 row Poster view with larger thumbs is great too, I thought my initial 3 rows were a little crammed almost like a wall view. Also like that you made the info overlay optional as i think it isn't necessarily needed depending on how one navigates. I for example have the remote set to "show information" on select, which is why i tend to prefer full width posters without info.
Thanks, that was one of the first things I modded. With the 3 rows there was just too many covers on screen at one time to really focus on anything in particular.
I wanted to do the same thing with the list view but came across too many issues when it came to navigating the rest of the menus outside of the video library (addon dialog, file dialog, etc). The file menu was a particular pain in the ass. Things would look fine without the details in until I entered the movie / tv show library and then things would 'stick' until I reset the Show Details setting.
newbra Wrote:Couple of notes:
That's definitely a better idea. I have another idea for the favorite addons menu in mind so I'll use your idea of adding the recently added / watchlist addon.
newbra Wrote:One small thing that I think does not work so well is using the selection rectangle_off (grey) on non-selected thumbs. I temporarily had this myself during development and wasn't convinced by the look. Something you may want to look check as alternative is to replace it with a "diffusemask" in the thumb props. I already have some PNG masks in skin/media/ which are meant to round off the corners of the non-selected thumbs.
I thought so too but it's kind of grown on me. I went ahead and created some image mask individually for each view. The one thing I think could be added further in the skinning engine is to allow borders for the diffuse image. Without the borders the curved corners tend to stretch.
newbra Wrote:You should be able to pretty much copy/paste a lot from DialogVideoInfo.xml.
I completely overhauled the DialogVideoInfo.xml but you're right and I'll probably end up using the new version for the FullscreenVideoInfo.xml.
newbra Wrote:Also: Uploaded all source PSD's if it helps adding and editing icons etc.
Thank you very much for that. It'll come in handy along the way. I hope I'm not stepping on too many toes with this mod.
Now on to some more screens:
The new DialogVideoInfo.xml window
List view with Watched Overlay and HD icon in the header
New extended list view
New buffering screen

Updated the font.xml in /720p/ within the first post download.
This makes NaviX usable with the Skin.

Skinned NaviX for seamless integration with the Boxee-Inspirat. Released, see first post in thread.

The HomeFeed appears to be working again in Eden-RC2. After manually installing: https://github.com/pieh/pieh-xbmc-addons/blob/master/script.rssclient/script.rssclient-1.0.4.zip
there are a few other issues to resolve for better RC2 compatibility, one one being:
Because of the Now playing button in this skin, I need conditional navigation like:
This is not working. It does not move up to 9999 neither 7000 regardless if media is playing or not. Is there another way of doing this?

Make <onup> go to buttons with the same ID, then make them <onfocus>9999</onfocus> and <onfocus>7000</onfocus>, and finally add the visible condition to each <visible>Player.HasMedia</visible> and <visible>!Player.HasMedia</visible>.

Thanks. I did a quick test and that works as well. I'm wondering tho, is the <onup condition="***">***</onup> obsolete or just temporarily broken (worked before RC1,2)? It seems more straightforward and elegant then these dummy buttons.

I believe, and one the devs can correct my if I'm wrong, but conditions are only evaluated at window creation. I ran into this problem a lot when trying to condense some of your re-used code.
Some new screens:
Square view for Album and Addon menus
Home screen with random Addons submenu (added button for DVD playback)
Updated video info screen
For those that want to give it a try, download it from: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3687220/Boxee%20Inspirat/skin.boxee.inspirat.zip

It should work for RC2, I actually thought this was to make it Dharma compatible.

Love it! but I really liked the RSS feed on the home screen. How do I get this back??
