Great at skinning and comedy, is there nothing this man cant do?

first off the skin looks incredible and i cant wait for an update.
i had a few questions about the views in the playlist view
i know that currently in the now playing section you can see fanart, movie title, cover thumbs but no movie info such as movie synapses, media tags, movie ratings.
is that because xbmc's code does not support this or just because no one has thought to include this in their skins?
i would assume the former but i ask because of all the views and all the other screens the now playing list seems to be the only one that could use some dressing up and frankly i am quite absent minded at time i will queue up like 100 movies and then forget what a few of them are about and it would be nice to be able to scroll down my queue to get movie info rather than backing out to fanart view and then finding the movie in a list of 1000 other things.
i realize it is a rather minor issue and something most ppl would never notice is missing.
however if you are looking for some new ideas to improve apon the prefection that you've already given us and this is not kneecapped by XBMC not being able to proform this function i think that it would make the now playing list alot look nicer and seem more user friendly than it already is

sometimes it's a typo, other times it's a bad copy and paste job.
or i just forgot to add custom backgrounds, as is the case with the now playing view for music.
so if you're looking for patterns, there aren't any ;-)

good question. i think it's a little bit of both actually.
the 'now playing view' is a bit different from all the other views.
a regular view only lists either movies or episodes, but the 'now playing view can contain both at the same time.
the only problem is, there's no way for the skin to know if the focused item in the now playing view is a movie or a tv show episode.
other then that all the info should be available.
i'll see if i can add a media-info and/or fanart view to the 'now playing' screen.

i think this was asked before but how do i remove some of the main menus in Transperancy and add lets say TV Movies and Music Videos instead of Programs or Favorites.
I basically want my menus to be as such:
Sorry for asking this but I checked the settings and appearance and didnt see anything right away.

To remove buttons, go to Settings and press left to get to Skin Settings. Go to Home Window and disable or enable all the Menus that you want which can be exactly the setup that you suggested.
To change a menu into something else, edit the Transparency!\720p\home.xml file. For example change an unused button like the Trailers button into the TV Movies button by replacing all instances of <label>Trailers</label> and <label>Movie Trailers</label> with <label>TV Movies</label>.
Also, change all instances of <onclick>XBMC.RunScript($INFO[Skin.String(Trailers_Path)])</onclick> to <onclick>XBMC.ActivateWindow(VideoFiles,Source X)</onclick>
Where "Source X" is the name of the source where your TV Movies are located.
Changing anything inside the <label> tag changes the name of the button and changing inside of the <onclick> tag changes the action of clicking the button. Hopefully that makes sense to you. Be sure to save a copy of the original home.xml in case you accidentally change something you didn't want.
I'd suggest not renaming the Program button since you may need it to access your program plugins in the future like the SVN installer and there's not a real easy way to launch program plugins except through the button. Trying to launch program plugins via the file manager just leads to an error.

I was thinking, ronie, would you prefer to lock your release thread, so bugs, questions, and praise don't get lost in the nearly 60 pages of one thread, and instead get reported in a more easily findable manner?

i know what you're saying :-)
bugs/problems/questions should definitely be posted in new threads. i pretty hard to track everyone's issues otherwise.
feature requests can either go in here or in a new thread, it doesn't really matter that much to me.
updated the FAQ accordingly.
