It is impossible to advise on this because although not diffcult making a LITE version is a major undertaking. If you already know XML you need to read the XBMC skinning documentation.
Things you would need to address for LITE version.
1. All the skin files would have to be gone through removing all heavyweight features.
2. Images couldneed to be scaled to lower resolutions.
3. Maybe consider reducing the entire resolution of the skin.
As I said to do this correctly would take a significant amount of time this will not change no matter how many times you .
Skins are already out there that are designed with lower spec hardware in mind inc the the original Rapier.
the purpose of my MOD is to add all the decent features I find so that people can benefit from these features but still enjoy the Rapier look and feel.
However, if all you want to do it reduce the size of the mod. Just navigate the skin folder and you will find lots of weather desktop backgrounds. Just delete them. Also you could delete and images that are for views you do not use eg Jukebox. Providing you don't select the Jukebox view all will be OK.

Thanks for the explanation.
I was not thinking of create lite version myself because it's too hard for me. What I was thinking was just reduce the size, like you mentioned above. I just want to make sure I can just delete those weather files I won't be using without causing system crash.
Here is a list of what I would be doing, please correct me if you see anything wrong:
- Delete the whole folder images\backgrounds\weather-conditional
Do i need to edit some xml files to disable it?
- There are two folders are identical to me. Can I remove one of them?
- Delete folder media\jukebox.
Is there a way to remove it from showing as an option (editing xml file)?

Hey qualar, long time no see. ;D
I have request. Can You please add link on the HOME screen for TV SHOW Next Aired. I saw it at my friends home for AEON skin and I see it very usefull.
Thanks in advanced,
Some bugs I noticed:
* When enter SETTINGS from MOVIES the top navigation is not visible;
* When enter SETTINGS and then into SKIN menu, the TOP navigation cannot be accessed again. Only the EJECT/TURN OFF menu.

Hello there! I really enjoy the Skin-mod you created.
I was quite content with my setup until I wanted to try a script called Trakt Utilities which required me to update to a nightly build in order for it to function.
After the upgrade I noticed that the script recentlyadded.py was no longer working and after a little research I realized that this was because it was no longer needed as it was integrated into xbmc.
I was wondering if you had any intention or were in the process of updating your skin to to fix compatibility issues (and this issue particularly) for the near future. Anyway, thank you.

Actually... After manually re-installing the recentlyadded.py script and cycling through skins, the issue doesn't seem to be affecting Qualar Mod anymore. So, ignore my last post!

So far the skin is really neat and im pretty satisfied, i have just one wish

the info from qualar:
so is it possible to have the info view like in mikito so that the background movie list hides?

Yes change the XML for the video info to Window instead of Dialog.
- darkzu - 2011-05-01 20:15
