Hi! I love this skin! So simple and clean.
I took the freedom to modify it a bit. I thought the home screen could be done even cleaner.
I got rid of the xbmc logo and the shutdown buttons(as I have these functions on my remote), skipped the shadows (dupicating gradiants underneath instead), removed the zoom animations, and more. Also I noticed that the font on the submenus was not the same, so that is fixed in this mod too.
Just wanted to share if someone else likes it. Replace the content of Home.xml with the code from here:

Thanks for the simple, clean and beautiful skin. What about trailers? Is there trigger in library. It will be very nice if in Fanart view in movies (library) to watch trailer in the fanart windows (small fanart). I think that people avoid to watch trailers fullscreen because of the low quality of the files (mostly 480 if you are lucky). thats why I'm suggesting smaller fanart window for trailers, if triggered.

I agree, i'm trying to come up with something for seasons that suits the feel of the skin - if you have any suggestions I'm all ears...

Not sure about trailers - I'll see how I go but I don't use them so it won't be a high priority - probably be on the video info screen if anything

Like you said the whole idea of this skin is ease of navigation so I'll be avoiding too many controls like you suggest. Thanks for the suggestion though, I'll take it on board.

Amazing skin ! simple, pure and efficient !
One just thing if you can add: possibility to add some home buttons with a playlist. In fact I do want to have my concerts with my movies...
Thank you and keep going it's a very good job !

This looks really really good. I think there needs a few tweaks on spacing. The movie info overlaps the time just a tad and in rightlistview you can just see the top of the upcoming movie title. Might just be me my views thought.
But I agree this is a very nice clean skin that works well when viewed day and night. By that I mean doesn't get lost when the un hits the screen and doesn't burn your eyes when used at night in a dark room.
Oh and the final thing I would say is the buttons for the *play* *refresh* in info seem a little lost as they are.
I hope these comments are not taken badly as they are truly meant constructively.
Thanks for putting in all your hard work on this.

I've changed the buttons you're talking about, plus added 'get fanart' and 'get thumb' etc back in. Will upload an updated version on the weekend as I've changed quite a few things.

Thanks for such a great skin.
I have noticed another problem, in tv-shows I use a logo script to get them. When you enter a tvshow which has only one season (i.e. Spartacus, Band of brothers..) appears like a tv image over the tvshow logo.
But when it has multiple seasons everything is fine. This issue can be easily solved by creating a "season01" directory on all single season tvshows.

The TV image is a fallback for when no logo is available - should be a quick fix so I'll make sure I fix that in the next release (which should be posted soon). Thanks for the heads up!
Fanart/Thumb downloading? - archmage4ever - 2010-08-05 13:38
This skin is really sweet, cudos to Crookas for the great work!
One question though. When i am in my TV-series view and press "i" to get show information or season information for example, i am used to seeing the option to download fanart and thumb.
In this skin i cannot find those options. Are they not part of the skin and if so, could you include them?
