i'm not sure this is a bug in Alaska, but maybe someone can confirm it:

When i'm in movie view, for instance "lovefilm" viewmode, i can see the imdb rating (in stars) and the number of votes. But when i go to detail view for that same movie, the box says "score unknown". This goes for every movie in my collection.

Also i have a small question. I've edited the color scheme "quantic.xml" to be more to my liking. To do that i made a copy and named it "quanticbrainfrz.xml". So far so good, my color scheme looks just the way i want to and i had a good couple of days fun with it. Smile Until there was an update to Alaska which trashed my custom scheme. Is there any way to keep custom files without the updater resetting the entire skin structure?

What do you mean by 'detail view'? Screen shot?

No, you'll have to back it up somewhere because XBMC deletes the current skin completely.

Hi, Thanks for your reply,

I just found out it isn't a bug in alaska. With detail view i meant the view you get when you hold the play button on the apple remote for a few seconds when selecting a movie.

I thought the box on the upper left would contain the IMDB rating, but in fact it contains the MPAA Rating (like "R" or "PG"). I'm using the moviemeter scraper for dutch plots, and that's the culprit that doesn't get that specific information.

Sorry for the misinformation Sad

The second problem is easily overcome by making an automator script, so that's no problem either, hope xmbc fixes it in the next release though Smile

I'm really sorry if i ask dumb questions, but here goes again Wink

I was checking the other topic "please add finish time on OSD" and found some playback screenshots: [Image: screenshot002kt.jpg]

But my playback looks like:

Is there any setting to change the view mode? Yours looks much better and looks more like the one i had in Plexalaska:

Is it possible to add the "New" icon for movies?

That's the other Alaska; this is Alaska Revisited.

ah, that's totally clear. Sometimes it's a bit confusing having a single forum where all the different "dialects" of a single skin come together. I saw your reply in the other topic and without hesitation thought it would be alaska revisited.

If i may ask, what's the reason you chose to make a different menu interface for that? it's not a killjoy for me (i absolutely love alaska revisited), but the old one does look a bit more polished (imho) and more in line with the rest of the skin.

Tompie Wrote:Hitcher,

Small inconsistency in my humble opinion: I've chosen to activate the "Enable 'Artists' for Music" option so I'm by default navigating via the artists rather than the albums. However, the 'Album' view is also missing from the submenu options of the music icon, so there's no direct access anywhere to the albums.

Easiest fix seems to be adding an album access in the submenu (and the option to hide it for those who feel like it).

Thanks,

T.

Just added this. Wink

Thanks, great to see the constant improvements ! Brilliant skin !


Translation - TomPiXX - 2011-02-17 23:50

Hey Hitcher,

I need some help. The german translation is nearly completed but there are some issues within the skin layout if we want to have a usefull speech.

Maybe you can take a look at the screenshots.
There are just a few, small changes required to fix the issues.

In some cases, the text is auto scrolling, so it's not so bad but would look better if the text field would be a little bit brider.


Thanks a lot!
Tom

Does any one know how to make Music section to be always in File Mode? Seems this skin defaults to Library mode no matter how many times I change it.

By the way, love the skin Smile

Can I ask, why has clearart been left off the paused osd for tv shows? I've seen some old mods, not sure how well they'd work with todays verson of Alaska, is there some chance to have an option in Revisted to have these on?

I for one like to have clearart, and miss seeing it when paused etc.

Thanks, still my only skin!

If you can't abbreviate them any more then send me the string and I'll look at making it use more lines.

PS Check out the latest update because there's a few more strings added.
