yeah the effect can be tricky ... what about removing static background ?
I think the same effect can be added if the poster grid continue until behind the title and plot , add a gradient filter on top and limit the onfocus select item to where is now so you wont be selecting something behind the text.
another thing is and this I dont know if is possible a continuous scroll, when you are arriving to the end hte beginning is already there, instead of end and jumping to the beginning again.

Then the wall will just kinda hover and the continuous effect will be lost.
I guess he could (in theory) make it like 6 rows high and 8 spaces longer in theory,
but that would be a massive massive memory hog and probably ruin the view.
Since it's already displaying 40 (i think) movies on the screen at once.. I suspect the limit is already being pushed.

Thx for the feedback, yea wall view is one view I haven't touchup yet...Even though it uses alot of thumbs it runs pretty good on my lower spec PC, I was kinda suprised when I started the wall view that it handles well on a low spec PC.
I use these the most, these should be pretty much done:
All the others have a little more touchup to do...

Pretty much any build after r26770 should be good thats when they added auto-sizing labels. When I tested on Camelot, the majority of skin was good just a few labels were off and some animations were off.

a few oddities i came across:
cheers for the sneak-peak mcborzu. i've enjoyed taking it for a ride.
oh, and feel free to use any T! code you're interested in. ;-)

You need the latest release with the snazzy multi-colour Night logo.
If memory serves I was told the settings menus were just placeholders until the rest of the skin was done.

@Ronie, thx pointed out a few things I overlooked.
lol, 'operation bartowski' was the original name until I heard the Knight Rider theme 100x when making the trailer then I thought "Night" fit better.
My idea was too make it a simple as possible for new users, some other skins the settings section can be a little confusing. Newbies should be familiar with Confluence.
Plus I have a couple ideas for skins and want to "streamline" things as much as possible. Creating a setting section from scratch would add 2 months, and confluence's code sorta future proofs me or atleast makes adding new features easier...
