It is handy to have a file manager, I'm sure you will find a place to add a button for opening filemanager Smile

And System Info is also needed imo.

edit:
Maybe in DialogButtonMenu.xml

What button normally opens system info?



Also, I wanted to add, there is something messed up with recentlyadded.py that requires the fanart to be in each season folder for it to pull on the homepage with the recently added eps. Problem with the script not the skin.

<onclick>XBMC.ActivateWindow(7)</onclick>

And remote has default this action in keymap <home>
<info>XBMC.ActivateWindow(SystemInfo)</info>

You can add file manager to settings like PM3.HD and, like Waffa sugested, System Info in the dialogbuttonmenu.xml like many skins have.

I also didn't find favourites...

Other thing, i also think that the "Sort by:" arrow in view options should be blue, like the other focused buttons.
I tend to get lost when the arrow is focused. What do you think?

If anyone could answer this question submenus would be done. (which include, filemanager, favourites, etc.)

Yep, its working now on 30130.


- zeus[x] - 2010-05-15 11:25

Can this skin work in r30130? I can't find any skin, only the 2 skins that came by default.

any ideas?


- xbs08 - 2010-05-15 11:33

Glad you solved the submenu visibility problem Smile

make sure its in addons, rename folder to skin.shade and put in description.xml and addon.xml in skin folder. To get recently added working follow the link Waffa posted.


Edit: Submenu and file manager are working fine for me also. Couple suggestions, move the submenu up underneath the main menu, and add a option in poster and welo view to have the red and blue discs pop up instead of the disc with fanart.


- zeus[x] - 2010-05-15 11:46

That was so easy!
Thanks for your help

Nice, now Shade has submenus Smile

I only think that the submenus would be better above the home icons.
Would make more sense in navigation too, like this.

TESTERS: Can anyone post if everything works with the update versions of RecentlyAdded.py? Does all the fanart work and change when you highlight the different list items? Does featured still work?

Wow, Great idea, working on it now. This looks much better, I cant believe I didnt think of it.

Does it look better like this? (I changed the font and removed the bright white liner)

Everything is working on r30159 with updated script. Featured shows up but its not selectable?
