UND3R ACHI3V3R Wrote:I am looking forward to this release. I'll grab it now. I know the lowered rss feed didn't make it this time but maybe next release? Maybe also as an option to show or not to show?
next time dude... lower rss is on the to do list... as for it showing, thats already in the screen options

Looks good, tested a bit last night, didn't recall seeing it, but is there functionality for xbox game trainers?
- xb2iris - 2008-10-16 16:36
just tried it, and it works fine on my system, and someone else tension113 confirmed it works on his... so, maybe ur running out of memory or something... no idea... fanart cycling works a ok for me, so i don't know how i can help u out... although i do... guess u don't like volume iii now either... hahaha...
Tension113 Wrote:Wow.. Seriously??
glad u liked the backdrop... its special coz it has an iris in it... lol... thanks for those fixes... and that cast section... work the way you wanted it to... coz i haven't tested it out properly...
proctor Wrote:Very good work. After seeing this it might finally be the end of PM3.
trying to turn aeon into pm3... functionality is the name of the game in my opinion... glad u like it...
jarod71 Wrote:looking good, however, the tv view with the filmstrip border around the screen thumbnails looks a little out of place. I really like the dvd case. I think it should kinda flow a little better. It would be nice if the now playing icon had the dvd cover as well and if we could have something similar for the tv episodes and music albums. not sure. Just looks a little disjointed. these are observations form the screenshots. I will try it out myself tonight. I think you should move away form the dvd case and make all the views look like the now playing with a gloss and just a border. any one else have any ideas?
out of place... people complained about the original so i changed it, and since then, ur the only one to complain about the new one... create a new filmstrip overlay for me and send it to me so i can include it, not making any changes for awhile... but we'll see what happens come volume iv... and for now playing... i removed the other covers from it for a reason, the home screen needed uniformity, and needed a bit of modifying... so i did what i did... but universal covers may be the way of the future... we'll see...

press the back button...
BlackRose Wrote:There we go, thanks XB2IRIS.
as usual... ur comments have too much fire for words... thanks for every comment and keep the violence to a minimum... but yes, it takes ages doing this, and i'm sure a few people don't care about that... but what can we do... they'll just not get any requests done and will ultimately be ignored... so, yeah, why bother... can't wait to hear what you have to say!
R111 Wrote:painful bro.. thanks for Vol.3
hahaha... you gotta know it, and yes, the wait for volume iv will be longer... holiday awaits!

Ok, heres the low down!
It's amazing. From the home screen to the view changes, everything is slick as hell. The Info view is my new default. It's so smooth and in my opinion looks better than the Showcase view now, with the small text while navigating your collection. Love the letter showing location in catalogue as well. Real useful! Using lower home scroller position, and the shading behind the now playing panel bothers me, because some text gets mingled in the background (that's a requests, my first). Like the cast section in video info as well. Good that thumbs have been included. All in all, amazing job with this Volume! I love everything, and I can't wait for Volume 4!
Keep up the good work and enjoy ur time off. We won't bother u too much!

Tension113 Wrote:Not sure why this would be happening.. I have mine set to cycle through my fanart and both showcase and info are working the same.. Fanart for each movie comes into view when paused on it..
thanks for the help man... reckon it's a memory issue...
hicaow Wrote:woot! my life is complete :]
no problemo man... u asked for it... so, thank u for the idea... u like the cancel timer option?
rayjayy Wrote:mirror please!
hope u got it...
eQUIV Wrote:Screenshots look great, I'll install this and try it out when I get home. Has anyone used this version on their Xbox? I'm wondering how well it runs on xbox, i love the new features and look of this but am worried how it will run.
works fine on my friends xbox... but there are issues when backdrop cycling is enabled in showcase and info views... but very seldom... memory issues occur from time to time... but across the rest of the skin... it works fine... so, if u have memory glitches, try resizing fanart and hopefully that'll make showcase and info work perfectly...
Cranial Wrote:Check your pm's, I'll leave it up for a week or so. Not too many hits
thanks for keeping it on a downlow...

I tried it at home, I like the movie and music views, I like the pictures section alot, I can live with the views for games, I don't like the filmstrip overlay on the tv show screenshots, I will try to mod that myself. I think overall it is very slick and very functional. It looks great for sure. My original point is I would like to see a little uniformity across all the views. thats all. A lot of skins feel unfinished and lack the final polish of a pmIII. this is very polished. It will probably be my main skin. I love mediastreams attention to detail but it is just too busy/cluttered for me.
This is very stripped down and functional at the same time. I just think a set of icons or overlays over all views would tie it all together. I appreciate all the work that has gone into this.
one question, how do I speed up the delay it takes to show the info and fanart for a movie?
thanks for all your hard effort!

six_storm Wrote:Looks and works great man! Great job and hope to see another volume on its way later down the road.

idlerobbo Wrote:Does anyone else wonder if we are getting toa point where this thing can't be improved!??
hmmm... anything can be improved... we'll see what new magical functions arrive down the road... ideas are already running through my brain, so we'll see... any advice... pass it on...
Doraemonn Wrote:Awesome job!
that's on the to do list... don't now about the item count... what u mean by that, coz horizonz has an item count displaying on most views... explain and we'll see if it can find its way into the next release...

dynamix Wrote:Absolutely love this release! Really like the design of the mainmenu scroller and now playing widget. Also the Info view is superb. Like it's speed and smoothness. And there has to be much more to discover tonight
thanks man... that's the kinda responce any skinner likes to here...
XBDD Wrote:Amazing release. Everthing looks stunning especially the new Info view! Home screen is too special for words.

ok, second person to mention tv episode overlay... if u can sort a nice overlay out for it, pass it my way and i'll include it... look forward to seeing what you can create dude... pm me a screenshot when ur done... i'm completly into the uniform thumbnail overlay idea... want to do it, but i'm lost in my attempts so far... and as u know, not updating for awhile due to taking a break... so, if u can sort a great overlay out for me... we'll unleesh it in volume iv... pm me with ur thoughts... thanks for the great comment...
