Love this theme! Have wanted the bigger thumbs back ever since I switched from old PM3 to Confluence
I hope you'll add an option to make the VIDEO menu go directly to files like old confluence (would get really happy if you did the same for music also). I'm one of the few who never really liked the library view because it seems to always scrape my media wrong or not at all as long as it is not mainstream music/video.
What options will you be bringing over from old confluence in the end?

I enjoy using the file mode also, its easier for me to get everything organized just
the way I like it, I haven't had too much trouble with movies scraping in library
mode as I have with music. One thing that annoys me is all the last.fm moods
and the long list of styles that are not styles. but then again is is probably the
wrong place to discuss that.. Another good thing about file mode is adding
thumbs and fanart to my playlists.. I added a radio button to the home menu
that pops up all my online radio playlists..

Hi love the mod you have done especially making the movie thumbnails larger that was always annoying when a distance away from the tv some movie looked the same cause the pictures were too small I have one small request can you change the watched icons cause they are a thin white tick unless the cover is dark you can barely see them perhaps change them to a more bolder colour like Orange or something and make three tick a bit thicker so it stands out more or you could even try a small banner across the poster saying "WATCHED" so you can easily tell it has been watched this would work well for tv series as well I would do this myself but I have no idea how to or how to get get it on my openelec machine
One other alternative is to make the banner darker for shows that have all episodes watch like dimming it so you can easily tell what shows have unwatched episodes by the fact that they are at full brightness

maybe the ticks could be of blue, green, or red to match the theme?

Great looking skin. Definitely an improvement to original confluence. I understand jezz's decision to not support anything external content that's not created or handled as default by xbmc but i would still like the option to use custom home backgrounds.
RE: Playing around with confluence - wilson.joe - 2012-04-28 09:49
being that there isn't any fanart, is there any need for the fanart view anymore? or will it be implimented
RE: Playing around with confluence - Mudislander - 2012-04-28 10:13
media fanart shows up in the media views, only not on home menu

Is there any way you could give us both options (old skin and lite version), either edelivered with xbmc or only the lite version with xbmc (master) and the other one just in repo?
I'm asking this beauce i likes the backgrounds + there was the possibilty to choose the backgrounds for movies, music etc. + when i went to Videos, there was an option that it would go directly to Files, not any other thing.
