Immediately thought of Metropolis when I saw these. Just some inspiration for what the trailer image could look like...
...and then if you could find a way to create a movie pause screen that looks something like this...

[TV - Low List]
When browsing "All Seasons" in Low List view, the poster on the left side shows the season 1 cover for all episodes.
[TV - Landscape]
Landscape view with landscape.jpg enabled doesn't have a fallback image. (Would be nice to use fanart.jpg as fallback if possible)
[Movies - Fanart View]
The posters for my Movie Sets doesn't show up and there's no fallback image either. They do show up in the Files viewtype though.
This probably varies from person to person, but I noticed a slight eye-strain from reading text on top of the dotted pattern in the lower part of the screen.

Really great work, i love it! The home menu is just soooo beautiful when you choose the icon theme.
Two small things though, as I'm using this with german speech settings:
1.) "Movie set" shouldn't be translated to "Film einstellen" as that means to change the settings of a movie. The correct translation would be "Film-Reihe", but I guess you could just use movie set, too.
2.) The font used when playing movies which shows the state of the movie (i.e. paused, playing, forward, rewind...) in the top right corner doesn't display umlaute (ä,ö,ü) but instead an ugly box. I guess you could just change the letters to ae, oe, ue.
Both things are of course only minor problems and of no urgence. But I hope you'll note those down to fix them somewhere in the future, as it would bring your awesome work a little bit more near perfection.

voidy Wrote:hey AmraSorry to give you TOO many views to choose from. I've never seen another skin do a random view but I would have to guess that it would involve some python programming. Not really something I want to try.
sialivi Wrote:[TV - Low List]By design, it should show the main TV Show poster when the view is flattened. I'm not sure if it is an XBMC bug or not but when viewing episodes in Low List normally (not flattened) it will show the current season thumb on the left just fine. When I flatten a show then the season thumb does not show, there is just an empty space. So in order to have an image there when a show is flattened I added the TVShow's poster. At least that's how it works on my computer.
RE: The trailer image, I'll look at that and see what else I can find. Still not sure if I am changing it though.
mikesch Wrote:Really great work, i love it! The home menu is just soooo beautiful when you choose the icon theme.Thanks and for the record, I still want to do a little more with that home style such as adding the optional recently added or random items. just didn't get to it yet.
mikesch Wrote:Two small things though, as I'm using this with german speech settings:1. Sorry. I only speak English (live in USA) so I just combined a couple strings I had found ("movie" + "set"). I will take note of this though for the next release. Thanks.
2. I will probably need to change the font to the primary one used for the plot, dialogs, etc. If you want to test it now, it is a simple change in the font.xml file.

Thank you!!!! This is great! I will be trying it out as soon as I get home from work.

OMFG!!!! An alpha's been out a whole day, and I'm only now downloading!!??!!
*punches self in the face*
Now that outta the way, I works great thus far. I post any bugs or missing features later today. I can really see this skin going down as one of the best for XBMC. BTW, it works great on the nightly builds.

If you look back thru the last day for Rygrath's posts he has listed a couple so far. After I get this to v1.00 I will be updating it to Eden.
Thank you & I hope it works well for you. In case you or anyone else missed it, please remember that the Music & Pictures sections are not finished in the Alpha release. they will be my big items in the next release.
@sialivi (and anyone else who wants a different Trailers image)
How about one of these two? Personally, I think I like the popcorn one the best.

I like both of them so either one is fine with me.
