Home button fade out? - id78 - 2010-01-04 14:52

Hi
Ellipsis is now my main skin, thanks.

I vaguely recall a skin having the feature of the home buttons fading
out of sight after a few seconds, clicking would bring them back on screen.
One of the Visions maybe?

Anyway, how could I do that with ellipsis?
I often leave the trusty Xbox idling on the home page
with a background slide show, and that would be a neat look.

Thanks

It's an interesting idea, I'll speak to equinox about it, maybe we can add it to the list for the next beta (Beta 1.2 or even Beta 1.3 after that). But right now other than coding the entire thing yourself, I don't think there is anything else you can do. I presume you'd have to add a delayed animation to all home icons for when idle.

The skin that has this option is Containment. (Chi3f, I believe?)
The skin runs fine on current builds, but the feature is not working.
Tried the Xbox on 20848, 25497, 26389, and even 14095.
Had a vague plan to study how he did it, then try to pull if off
on your great skin.

Thanks for considering these things, Blackbolt, and again for making it work on the box.
