The new view is awesome, especially if it can be modified to work with more than one thumbnail for an episode, maybe even up to three (if the platform allows and design doesn't get too crowded). When can we hope to see it official in Rapier?

The view is very nicely put together and is a MOD made by another user, which scarfa may implement to his design. As for more thumbnails, I think it might go against his initial design concept for the skin being very simple and conservative but again he has the final say.
Hope the view gets shared too!!

Good news everyone! I've uploaded the Episode Mods so they are now available to try out! It's a full-replacement mod. Overwrite your old Rapier folder with the one downloaded.
Thread can be found here. Please keep all bug reports and tweak suggestions to that thread so that I can keep up with it and so that we don't pollute Scarfa's thread.

Awesome skin! I'm loving how fast it is, while still looking great.
Would it be possible to add a "Wall" view for TV shows and Movies? Or something like the Mulitplex view in Aeon?

Love the mod. Nice work! One thing though. The episode title in the wide list doesn't stand out from the synopsis. It needs to be bold or a larger font size IMHO.

Thanks. Glad you like the mod. I'll fix that in the next update. Please try to keep all comments regarding this mod in the appropriate thread. We don't want things to get confusing. It's just easier to read the suggestions when they are in their own thread.

Sorry. I thought I was in that thread.

Thanx for the tip. I tend to keep keep seperate folders for different versions.

I'm slowly making my way through your top bar code but I thought it would be a great idea for it to display the TV Show name and the current season you're browsing. This could also work for Music as well showing the artist and the album.
At the moment it might be confusing for some when browsing tv shows to remember which season they are in. Especially when using one of my views or the common views (ie, List, Icon...).
Just an idea. If I can wrap my head around it I may just add that in myself if you don't get a chance to beforehand.
Edit: This is what I have so far... I tried changing the "Videos" bread crumb to read TV Shows but it doesn't seem to take effect. Still working on getting it to work though. I removed the "Library" bread crumb because with it, the breadcrumb bar was too long. It'll still show "Files" when in file mode to help differentiate the two.
