has this been updated to work with the add-on model in the latest builds?

Yes, but you have to run the included .bat file to make it work:

Nice images - cheers. I'm glad that you like the backup slideshow - all your idea mate.
Well as for your album artist idea - the code takes your music share file path and compares the currently playing artist to that structure looking for that artist folder then the etrafanart folder within there to make up its slideshow images. In theory you could make it look for whatever currently playing tag you like. Ie tag your music genres "Bollywood" then put a folder in your music share called Bollywood and put an extrafanart folder in there and it would display from that genre. The problem with Album.Artist would be that it would often be the same as Artist. The trick would be writing something that looked at one now playing attribute first then if that was empty moving on to the next now playing attribute. - Let me have a think about it.
Heh - Ken Burns still not smooth for you huh? We'll nail that one next.

Just a heads up the skin layout has been changed in readiness for easier future updating.
Basically all default wallpapers and studio icons have been moved from the media folder into the images folder. The SVN and the ALT download links have been updated. If you spot any glitches please let me know.

Yeah, changes are being made so we can hopefully be one of the first set of theme's to be on the official XBMC add-ons svn. This means you will be able to update,etc from within XBMC. In time of course, and not until the XBMC team is finished and ready to have this stuff officially announced it's done and ready for prime time. (Just saying this so people don't expect this to happen soon.) More of 'behind the scene's info' only here.

just started using this skin... really like it.
On question... can I use the curtain but stop the count-down animation?

Hiya Livin - yes that's a setting under the "home" heading of skin options.

hey sharpe, in the newest version, i see you did away with the small wall icons view. is there any chance this will make a comeback?
i and a few of my peers are of the opinion this was the best view
- Sharpe - 2010-06-10 01:12
It's still there, just disabled for now whilst I look at reorganising the video library views structure.
To get it back edit MyVideoNav.xml in the PAL16x9 folder. Find <include>List5</include> replace with <include>SmallIcons</include>

Regarding the TV Shows section, I've been reading throughout this forum that the file name must be consistent with the name on one of the DB sites so that the scraper can properly identify it. However, I do not have the TV episodes in individual files, rather they are ripped copies of DVDs (the same format as I use with movies). Therefore, I am looking for a way for the TV shows section to show them, without ripping the episodes individually and losing out on the menus, chapters, etc. I have not been able to find anything regarding that setup on the forum. Is it possible?
