Sharpe, that actually looks fine. There's not much to be done with this view. I like the new changes. That's what i had in mind about the labels and just text name of show. Looks better that way, and not TOO much looking.
I don't think that's a bad idea, if possible, to remove loop-back with at least this view with banners, that way when scrolling through your shows it doesn't jump quickly to the top of the list. Only if it's not much trouble. It's ok the way it is, but this would improve things on this view.

Sharpe Wrote:Just to let you know I finally got round to adding singles to the sub menu controls by default.
One further tiny small request on this if you agree:
While I love having singles in the music submenu, this change has now pushed "recently added" off the screen on the music submenu (requires a scroll to the right).
Music is now the only section where "recently added" isn't immediately visible when down is pressed for the submenu. Any chance of swapping the positions of "songs" and "recently added" to bring "recently added" back to the first page? (Perhaps even moving it to the center of the screen to match it's position in the Movies and TV Shows submenus)
I may be wrong but I don't imagine many people with a decent music library use the "songs" selection all that much....

Done and done.

Sharpe, could you check this ?

It should do that already - try it with a keyboard. Press down and keep it held down. Watch it scroll to the bottom then remain on the last entry until you take your finger off the down button and press down again. It does this when I use my remote as well.

Okay, Working fine with my keyboard, but not with my MS MCE Remote (using the IRServerSuite).
I think that it is a problem with the signal interval of IRsuite.
EDIT: I can't find the *.bat file for building pre-merge releases :confused2:
The folder 'build' is still there.
Anything changed in the latest build ?

btw, I would like to see a submenu for 'settings' in the home menu screen.
Would be nice to have a quick access thingy.
What do you think ?

I think you shouldn't DOUBLE-POST. As far as the request, let's see what we can do.

Beautiful - thanks Sharpe. I appreciate so much how you let end-users like me with little to no coding experience play some tiny part in the look of the skin by your endless patience with and implementation of user suggestions!
Just in case you find yourself looking for anything else to tweak on the skin hehe - I just wanted to remind you of a couple of feature suggestions I mentioned in the past to see if you had given them any thought / decided against pursuing them.
1.) shuffle on/off display
2.) Display Album Artist fanart before generic fanart when artist fanart not present in "fanart instead of visualization'"
3.) Fix for Jerky Ken Burns in music fanart slideshow - Don't know if I'm the only one who experiences this or just the only one who's bothered by it!
4.) Not mentioned before - but is there currently no way to view meta data icons (eg 720p, DTS) for movies? I see them for TV shows but not for movies (I use List 3 view - could they fit somewhere on the info page perhaps?)
Sharpe Wrote: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.
Of course if you're just busy prepping BackRow for official repo inclusion (congrats BTW) and don't have time for such footling suggestions right now just say the word!
Thanks so much

Yep we're not using the SVN for the pre-merge release anymore. The SVN is now where we are storing the skin for the XBMC Add-Ons Repo. Part of putting all that in place required us to do a clean up and remove the old build stuff and and the, now unnecessary, texture packer files (all the building is now handled internally).
The old pre-merge version is still available in the download link found in the second post in this thread alongside an up to date post-merge version. These will always be up to date.
The idea is that after we update the SVN with quite a few changes we will request the skin be updated in the Add-Ons repo. We don't plan to over do this as it would be a pain having the skin constantly in need of updating.
