+1 for cinema experience.
This skin looks amazing. wow. just wow.
Can't wait to give it a go.

Yep, exactly my point.
I have said before that this skin IS the harbinger of the apocolypse. Just ask any Mayan you know.

Quick question here... When viewing the actors, will you show a list of movies
the actor is in or only a list of movies the actor is in and that are in your library.
It would be nice to have the current functionality (Movies from my lib) and a
toggle to see others i don't have... Very good when arguing with friends which
actor is in which movie. I usually just pull out the iPad and load up the IMDB
app when i don't have the movie in my library

Great work so far guys. I am so stoaked to get the opportunity to use this on my 58" Samsung. This is by far the most amazing skin to date.
I just hope I don't have to wait to long.
Are you considering have a search option in this skin? In my opinion that is the one thing XBMC needs more than anything. Boxee has it, but I don't like most of Boxee.
Having more than 4200 movies, and 340+ TV series searching for a title is a huge task sometimes.
Thanks again and great work!

If it ever goes out for beta testing, count me in, I am an fairly advanced user and would enjoy testing it.

Don't mind PPIC I think is a great idea. What I would love to see, it to scrape their whole filmography, and then somehow tag movies in your library. That's a fairly complicated bit of work, so for now its just movies in your library featuring the actor.
Maybe one day, though We've got a LOT of stuff that needs to be completed before we get there.

Movies: (using poster and fanart)
really like this view great work.
You may have mentioned it earlier but what are we looking at in terms of extra art. I keep an extrathumbs and extra fanart folder but don't mind adding another or couple to get the full effect of the views when released. do we need an actor and director as well

Alright, here is the scoop. I use emm and grab 5 extra thumbs. I don't think there is anywhere I use anywhere remotely near five... At most 2 and fan art right now. I'm not using any extrafanart (yet) and I think we have one place where tv is using an extra thumb (although ronie might correct me - I don't actually have any scraped so I don't even recall.
The biggest thing that no one will be prepared for it the actors. Here is the directory structure:
X:\Actors\Samuel L. Jackson\Samuel L. Jackson-thumb1.jpg ... -thumbN.jpg
And then the fan art subdirectory of
X:\Actors\Samuel L. Jackson\extrafanart\Samuel L. Jackson-fanart1.jpg ... -fanartN.jpg
Fan art for actors I've been saving about 1600x1000 and thumbs about 800x800 (probably overkill, but I prefer resolution)
When we get to a release date I'll probably release a pack of the actor stuff I've already gathered.

guess we've been changing it so many times we all lost track...
but looking at the code, it sure is:
X:\Actors\Samuel L. Jackson\thumb1.jpg ... thumb3.jpg
X:\Actors\Samuel L. Jackson\extrafanart\whatever.jpg ... doesn't-matter.jpg
