Shinu Wrote:@ sialivi, i don't see the point in posting the same thing twice. i'm sure Amra saw it the first time around.
Nothing points to that, and since I both added more notes and updated others, I kept it in one place so nothing gets lost in the shuffle. Xbmc.org really should consider providing bug trackers for skins and add-ons.

This skin is amazing. Any plans to include tvtunes support?

How come I've not heard of this skin before?
Just downloaded the alpha and it's already very polished, very interested in seeing what you have planned for the music section.

Aenima99x Wrote:@Amra - Absolutely stunning. Been waiting for this to be released. I was just preparing to start on a skin again myself, but now no need to...thanks a lot. I probably wouldn't have made much progress in the near future since my son is going to be born next week. So my girlfriend and kids thank you haha.Sorry I didn't get back to you til now but I took a couple days to enjoy the Labor Day holiday with my family. Anyway... Congrats on the impending baby!
I think the weather fanart question was already answered. Weather+ and Next Aired might be interesting but no definite plans, but they are in the back of my head. And lastly I've never seen TV Tunes so will have to see what it is.

Shinu Wrote:I have other suggestions/requests....Thanks & no problem on sharing any thoughts. Just please don't be upset with me if I don't implement everyone's ideas. Needless to say, that would be impossible. I don't mind adding some things if they are in my ability to do so but I also don't want this skin to have so many things/options in it that it becomes a resource hog. Note that even though I did BIG Alaska previously, I really am still learning all of this stuff.
On to your comments/requests...
1. I will see if that is easy thing to do. I originally scrolled the gallery views horizontally but found that I really liked them better vertically.
2. Due to the persistant info section in the lower quarter of the screen, this might be a tight squeeze. I'm pretty happy with the large selection of views so far.
3. Already have plans to work TV Logos in more views as well as (optionally) in the video OSD. I actually planned on doing it in the upper portion of the Info by reducing the plot area. Not set in stone though so I will look at all options.
4. Already noted.
5. I want to do another home style but first need to finish up the icon one, and a whole lot of other stuff. I like your idea & will keep it in mind. Thanks.

gekados Wrote:Hi Amra.Yeah, I still have more work to do on the Icon Home Style. I too am thinking about making it a fixed view and, yes I do still need/want to add recently added info. just didn't get to it in time before the Alpha release.
gekados Wrote:In tvshows section, any chance that you'll make an episode view ?What do you have in mind for an Episode view? Something similar to BIG Alaska?
Music, Pictures & Visualization hasn't been done yet. That'll be in the next release hopefully.
Glad your wife liked BIG Alaska. Hopefully she will like Metropolis too. My wife, 14 year old & 12 year old kids all like it and have no problems using it.

Be back in a little with more responses. Gotta stop & feed the family. Yes. I'm a full service Dad.

I haven't decided on exact Picture views yet other than the obvious "Gallery" views that I have for videos. I used to be a Comic Collector many, many years ago. I'm old enough to have bought & hung on to the first comic with Wolverine in it as a little kid. I have a few CBR's but mainly just enjoy the art nowadays. If I can work a Poster view in I will.
And lastly... Not sure about a Horizontal style (I presume you mean like Aeon). I suppose if I could find some way to work around the break in the screen background...

Thanks again for the notes. It looks like I have some work ahead of me. I will sort thru what you have posted & see what is doable.
@shinu & zepfan
Regarding PseudoTV. I've looked at it & it's not really something I would ever use but if there is enough call for it & you want to code it, I will certainly add it in. You may want to wait a little til I can update this skin & release the next version though, just in case I make any major changes to any xml that could conflict with what you may do. Plus also I will upload the uncompressed textures at that time for anyone who wants to make their own themes.

macshield Wrote:This skin is amazing. Any plans to include tvtunes support?See post#164. A few people have now asked for that so I will have to update my answer & say that I will definitely look into it.
steshell Wrote:How come I've not heard of this skin before?Thanks & you may have missed it because I started in March but took 2-3 months off from it & the thread got buried til recently.
The Music section will be a new thing to me as I don't use that on my HTPC. So, to be honest, I'm curious what I will come up with also. One view I know I want to include already will be the Gallery Square view. Obviously, I want to include more.
