Boo! How can you stomp on my hopes and dreams this way?

I've got an alternative plan. Big Grin

blacklist Wrote:Yes, like add ons. We have modified some existing scripts (random items and recently added) and are adding a couple more. Some are like tsr and are always running, but most just fire when called.

And no, the skin is not even remotely ready for consumption by the masses yet!

ronie knows where to find me if you guys need help with scripts Tongue

I'm very excited for this one. My girlfriend is too. We can't wait until this comes to fruition.

This is the single most amazing looking skin for XBMC ever conceived!

If you need any help bug testing, I was a game tester for Mindscape years ago and work in IT currently. And I'm happy to help!

Regardless, this skin looks unbelievable. Kudos.

If you need someone to "Play" with this skin to test for bugs and such on windows, I'm your man.

Always looking for a sweeter skin.

Thanks for all the offers guys. No where near ready for that yet. Smile

How about this idea.

If a show has more than 90 episodes, but less than 180, we show each episode as a degree of rotation around the clock. I think the large hand (blue?) should display the total number of episodes, and the small hand (red?) show the number watched.

If as show has less than 90 episodes, we can use the configuration and use 2 degrees to represent each episode.

The outying case would be a show with more than 180 episodes. In that case I suppose we could use half a degree to represent an episode. Its certainly not as elegant as my original idea, but I think it would work.

The other option would be to sue a tiny little python script to do the math for us. Certainly more elegant, and shouldn't really use any resources since all we are doing is Total Episodes/Watched Episodes = Percent Watched and then returning the number of degrees as part of a 180 degree rotation.

Thoughts?
