I'm having some problems when pressing reload skin and system info, do guys experience the same?

For those that want movies as the focused item on home screen (videos must be hidden or else videos will be the focused item), just edit this section of home.xml to loo like this:

PHP Code:
<content>
                    <
item id="3">

My media flags are all working except for in the drop down menu when you press "info" on the DVD remote while a movie is playing; it just diplays 0.0 instead of all the codec and aspect ratio info that displays while browsing through the movies.

Figured out this is a problem with mplayer as anything being played by DVDPlayer shows the media flags. Anyway to have the drop down info pull the media flag info from the database instead of the player?

I would like that too! Although my default would be TV shows.

2) ability to change the default item in "home" (as said here its default is pictures, but I would like to have programs).

Bugs?
1) "apply background to all windows" does not work for the root of the category, for example on my xbox works for f:\games but not for the source selection of games.
2) Also, I would find another highlight for the selected playback control button in the bottom.... running the xbox on low color profiles (I hate vibrant images) it's hard to tell which button is selected...
3) And at last, the "volume" control is now less visible under dvd/visualization playback, the previous one was easier to read.

Did I forgot to say "play dvd?" Smile

Play DVD is there it's in the shutdown menu. It only shows when there is a DVD of course.

Is there anyway the skin specific settings can be migrated automatically into the new version? I am trying to avoid manually applying my settings from the previous version.

Cheers.

Your settings should stay, since it resides in the userdata folder.

Hi Scarfa, great skin! this is now my default skin for my xbox, it looks great and works like a charm!
I have only one request... a list info view for tv shows with posters instead of wide icons... can we have that? pleeeeease? Smile

xbs08 Wrote:One request scarfa, could you add finish time to video fulscreen info?
Thanks

It should be there, or do you mean the amount of minutes remaining until the movie ends.

How about a view that includes the bottom bar from "fanart" view but instead is for tv shows and accepts 16:9 images?

having the play button next to the eject symbol in the top right corner too?

It did not stay. For example I had multiple background images defined under Version 1.6. When I installed Version 2.0 of the skin the backgounds disappeared.

Looking into "..\XBMC\userdata\guisettings.xml" I can see seperate settings for "Rapier1.6" and "Rapier2.0". IMHO, this looks like the reason.

I am on Windows 7 RC 64 bit Build 7100.

I mean the hour that the video will end, not the remaining minutes.

Player.FinishTime

EDIT: Noticed that there isn't a DialogBusy.xml.
I wish there was one for xbox users Smile is better to see "working... please wait!" than looking at a black screen.

I went ahead and modified this myself, I just copied the movies layout to the tv shows layout, and also the tv show information dialog. I didn't know how to add a skin setting and all that, so maybe this is not so useful to you, but well, just in case, here it is:

I also changed the list info view for music adding album reviews and artist bio.

Try getting rid of all the Rapier2.0 entries then rename all Rapier1.6 entries to Rapier2.0

I like almost all the new changes and additions to Rapier except the sound effects for choosing menu options and exiting a menu. The sound for choosing menu options sounds like a broken WAV, too sharp, too loud - a substitude would be most welcome. Also, moving up and down a list would benefit from a a soft clicking sound.
