Well we never used dropbox so it isn't official ...

xperience7 was the name of the folder included in the MOD, both the 720p and media folders were empty so it wasn't actually modding anything.

also the folder that paul included made the panel view appear but not as a separate view, it was on top of the regular 'fileview' which is a bit strange.

the one in my dropbox folder is the same as the one in the first post, i don't use it myself just thought i might be able to help by providing another download sourceWink

tried to make this work a few times, just realised its because when i was pasting the 720 folder into the skin it wasnt merging the folder '720p', merely creating a 720 folder within.

man now i feel like a douche!
works fine for me now! great work!

only problem I have with this mod is the fact that when I choose a TV show, it'll have to switch to another view to go to seasons, and then back to panels again. I think it would be much smoother and even better looking to have the Seasons view similar to the movie 'posters' view.

kinda like this (cheap mockup btw)

it would probably also be convenient to have the choice of posters for the first view instead of fanart panels, as loading fanart simultaneously especially on something like an ION system is a bit jaggy, maybe its just me.

Tell you what Mr. Charles Carmichael if you make these watched overlays work with this mod I'll be sure to include it into the 1.1 release. Smile

I'm trying to do this. Keep in mind, I have zero skinning experience, but I think I can do it. I'll let you know how it goes.
That said, if someone can do it, don't let me keep you from it! It'll probably turn out better.

My goal is to copy the code from the movie section, anyone think of a reason that won't work?


- XBMCG33K - 2010-11-27 23:33

Why not just enable the view-type in the tv section?

It's enabled for tv shows, then again for episodes. It's not enabled for tv series. So I'd assume that the poster setup for movies would be pretty much the same for tv seasons. I have no idea what I'm doing so I'm looking at all the code and trying to figure it out.

I am waiting for the Dharma final to see if i can do the same with the v1.1 version.

Nice! Are these the correct aspect ratio? I've noticed that the one provided distorts the fan art in the icon set.
