paul Wrote:Power toys resizer is of little use for this 1) there is no option for custom resize and 2) it does not do batch resizing and 3) it removes the transparancey
Well did you try the advanced button? there is a custom size and I think it will keep aspect ratio aswell + you can select all in a folder, right click and resize all....so that is kinda like batch resizing + it does keep transparency. Atleast it did on the few png's I tested.

paul Wrote:How did you manage to to keep the transparency using irfanview? is it just a simple setting i may have missed any tips would be helpful ta v much
I tested this and I could get it to keep transparency (download the extra plugins) but only for one color. So it does not work for the alpha channel.
(Atleast that was the conclusion I came to)

Cranial Wrote:Ha....I don't need any help in telling people to go away in short jerky movements(if you don't understand what this means then pm me) i no longer give a flying f#*K wether the moderators or developers think about me. I stay only because ther is a demand for xbox friendly skins. And i feel it is worth while for the majority of you guys. if i do go off on one it's not you lot i am getting at don't ever think that.
matt11601 Wrote:Interesting. This weekend I will install the new T3ch build and NOT configure backdrops and see what my memory is. If I understand correctly, not using any backdrops should improve memory usage, correct?Actually after i resized all my default backdrops(the crappy coloured ones) DOWN TO 480X270 I were getting 35mb in the home screen so i assumed if i removed them i would get more but i just got 35mb? but i am going to experimeny with the other screens to see if more memory can be save on a per view basis i am certain i can do it. it may or may not help you all but it's worth a shot
dynamix Wrote:Huh, i totally missed that discussion then... Though i can hardly imagine why people wanna do that. Maybe some guys are pointing fingers in the wrong direction?!?will keep it going untill there is no more demand for it
YesboX Wrote:Is this the skin? Aeon auriga (FR-fr) this is the one I can see in installer passion skins.It says Aeon Auriga in the thread title not sure what you mean by (FR-fr) and have no idea what this has to do with installer passion skin, maybe i am missing something. And i told you it was Aeon Auriga you never said you had no idea what it was( Its a skin For XBMC On the xbox) clear enough (sorry no offence intendid)

Atleast it did on the few png's I tested.Yes but again the biggest problem is whatever size you pick to resize them by it will resize them all to that size i need a resizer that allows you to do a full folders worth at a time and have the ability to resize by percentage of the original size and so far can't find away to do all that and still maintain transparency, i must be missing somat (no not a brain cell)

Paul - I normally use Photoshop, but have been playing around with Gimp as I mentioned a while back in this thread. It is open source and there are a number of batch processing plugins available...

Oh, and I just have to say...THANKS!
As someone with two xboxes in the house I really hope you don't spin down. I just don't get why people bag on the origins of the xbmc platform. There simply isn't a better media center around that can be had for $40 USD! When I was looking for a platform and started asking over at AVS I got an overwhelming response for xbmc on xbox. This was in the htpc forum!
I'm a techie by trade, always build my own pc rigs (three currently - one gaming, one digital audio workstation, and one media/backup server), and could have happily put together a killer silent/passive htpc. But the VALUE proposition wasn't there for me. I already have a blu ray player, very nice receiver, etc hooked up to my projector (with 150" 16:9 screen) and 46" HDTV. The xbox w/xbmc made the most sense.
My son has an xbox, a 360, ps2, the gaming rig, etc. He would rather use xbmc as opposed to the 360 when it comes to movie and music content streaming.
Sorry to take this off topic, but I wanted to say that without guys like you paul the xbox wouldn't be such a GREAT media platform. Sure I could use the older skins, but what you have done with Auriga makes everything sizzle. Keep up the good work!

mtnman Wrote:Oh, and I just have to say...THANKS!No worries mate i don't mind people going off topic and i doubt no one else will either.
As for xbox skins i am looking forward to getting my mitts on that experiance skin when they release it. and if needed i will work my magic on that as well but to play safe i will pm the author to get his approval first and of course theres skunkmonkees mini media that also looks rather nice. so theres more to come from me. God i sound like a stuck record when i keep saying thanks for the support as it really has surprised me so onwards and upwards.......

Oh without a doubt, thank you for all the hard work you put into this xbox mod. If it wouldn't be for you, I don't know how I would enjoy Aeon. Please continue and thank you very much.
There is a reason this thread is 5th largest in the whole auriga forum. Thanks again.

I had noticed the other thread with the other xbox friendly version soon died a death.
But not really noticed this thread being so popular it's nice to know all the same.
Just an update there has not been any real updates on github for a few day's now so i will hold of releasing revision6 untill something major changes or i see some really cool mod or you lot see something you want in it so let me know what ya need. in the mean time i am going to be doing a rework of my horizon mod as per jarods request and have been promising him a fix for ages. but i will keep a close eye on this thread and not bailing out.

I've just noticed that I can't switch views in TV Shows. WTF? Anyone else have this problem?

There is a setting to unlock all views under advanced settings
