While I fell in love with fanart a while back, that poster view just made me smile! Love it! It's nice to see posters getting the proper attention, as they really are the best representation of a movie.
My only gripe is the 1:1.48 ratio on posters ... but it's a minor gripe. Everything really looks wonderful.

Great idea I reckon - for wives/GFs as well as 99% of other people, it needs to 'just work'... there's already a great UI here, and everything feels so intuitive - 'burying' the settings would be a great idea. Playing a movie should mean (1) Scrolling through the movie library (or possibly through 'recently added movies); and (2) pressing play - nothing else.
And then again, for most of us who set up XBMC (the remaining 1%) it wouldn't be a bad idea either - how many people actually play with their settings everyday? Or is that a bad question to ask

Currently it does not but sombody is working on porting it and I believe he has it running fairly well already. I will say though, that after playing with it on a Windows PC, that I'm already planning on going the HTPC route. Everything is so much faster and smoother than on the xbox.

Stark likes processor in the coverflow mode--which is to be expected.
djh_ also suggested dropping the size of the thumbnails to improve performance. I'm reducing mine to 500 , so we'll see if my mini likes that a little better. it currently flows very nicely, but I definitely see slowdowns when fanart changes in the background with flow. Flat, on the other hand, is very quick either way.
Currently using a 2.16ghz c2d mini with 2gb of ram.
Macbook pro runs it a bit better, and i've ordered a new mini with proc upgrade--we'll see how that does.
Apple fanboy comments welcome and expected lol

I'm thinking of getting the new mac mini and run plex. But my guess is that it will take a while for the devs to move Stark to Plex. So I'll wait until then.

XBMC runs fine on the mini's --I had video tearing at first, but with the help of davilla we tracked down the issue and it runs just as well as Plex. I haven't been able to build it out with XCODE @10.5 - but it's not supported anyway. The svn builds @10.4 work great though

I could do the Norwegian translation if needed. Great work!

djh_ Wrote:Done. You can only really lock that upper menu, though, as the context menu settings are hardcoded into XBMC. Pretty sure you can disable those elsewhere, though. Are there any buttons you'd actually want kept - flatten/flow, for example?
Locking the upper panel is good enough for me. That's one of the main reasons I setup the xTV skin on Xbox1's that I mod for some of my friends and family. It's really easy to make it idiot proof by setting everything up with the most user friendly views and then locking the view panel so they can't be changed.
The context menu doesn't matter as much because you can restrict access on that by using XBMC profiles to create a read-only user who can't remove videos from the library, edit titles, etc.
