I know I'm pulling an old one here, but doing this doesn't give me the Library mode option. Got a fix Markiz? (or anyone)

Hi again X2biris...another couple of issues I have come across:

1) When updating movie library, the info panel at the bottom tells me it is currently downloading, etc...thats fine. However, when updating the music library, nothing is shown. You kind of have to guess when it's done.

2) When looking at pictures and listening to music at the same time, the Now playing display is situatied at a wierd X/Y coordianates, covering a lot of the photo...this, I would say, is a biggie!

I've noticed the same thing. I believe Xb2iris is aware of this bug. Lucky enough i can hear my harddrive while scanning so i know when it's finished Rolleyes

tuckbodi Wrote:That's a cool backdrop, where'd you get it? In fact, maybe a general question to XBMC users since I'm so new to the community is where does one find these cool backdrops people post with their screenshots? Do people share these? Guess I could go off and make my own but so time constrained these days.

deviantART is a great site. http://images.google.com/ has been another useful tool. People were sharing backdrops quite a bit in the Aeon forum. Obviously there is the new FanArt and Background Backdrops forum.

xb2iris Wrote:well... yeah, the immediate fanart idea didn't go down to well with the masses, and thus, i decided to remove it... sorry... what u need to do if u want it back... is edit the... MyVideoNav.xml and change the control which is pointing to fanart_image and has Control.IsVisible(899) and Control.IsVisible(57) in its visibility tag... remove the Control.IsVisible(899) from that visibility tag and it should show up immediately... sorry, can't sort it out for u, because my files are unavailable on this computer... hope u can get it to work!!!!

1st- a million thank yous. This skin is truly a work of arrt in both ease of use and the way it looks. I appreciate the huge effort you have clearrly put into it.

I to am missing the instant fan art fom version 1 and, despite your instructions can't gt it working in the latest version, The fan arrt only appeas when I hoeoer a particular movie or tv show (I am using windows XBMC). Loed how it loked in the 1st version of the skin(i.e instant fan arrt backdrop as you navigated thrrough movies/tv shows and would appreciate your help in getting it working in the latest version.


Thanks again.Big Grin

Okay I found it, nevermind sorry! hehe

I'm sure I'm just missing someone silly, but why don't movie backgrounds (from your selected folder) automatically rotate on file showcase mode anymore in version III. They do in poster mode.


- MikeBeecham - 2008-10-23 10:34

Sorry X2biris...but I found one further *blip*....

When in info or showcase mode and you scroll from movie to movie, you see the fanart for that movie flashup for a nanosecond, disappear to show the default grey background, then a few seconds later the fanart fades back in again...

...looks a bit wierd actually. Is anyone else seeing this?

Hi guys, sorry I haven't been in touch of late. Been a bit busy getting ready for a holiday that may become permanent. So, developement of Horizonz is post-sponed for awhile, but probably not for long, so don't lose faith. I have read all messages prior to this one, and all suggestions and feedback have been noted!

Thanks for all the support, and furthermore, thanks for the patience. Will get back to you as soon as possible. Rest assured, this skin is far from Done! It will be finished though, so hang in there.

Anyways, until I return, keep helping each other out! I know you won't miss me though! Hahaha! See you guys and gals l8r!

Have a great time.. Don't spend too much time thinking about additions for the skin while you're away..


A couple people had asked me for this awhile ago, but I haven't been around.. Been busy dealing with some pretty important things.. (Actually Rock Band 2 came out for Ps3 O:-) )

This fixes Poster view and adds Showcase to both Adult and Clips..
and also adds the Rss feed for the lowered scroller..

I think this will be incorporated into Vol. 4, but in case that's a ways off, here ya go.. Smile
