metasynthie Wrote:- I find myself wishing to be able to control the darkening/opacity of the background fanart in a lot of views. It's nice to see fanart in the smaller inset windows, but the big background (again, I have lots of 1080p backdrops for every movie, tv show, etc) are so dark & muddy that they often just look like murky shadows. If there was a slider to control this opacity or darkening or both, that would be awesome.I don't think I know how to do that, or if it is even possible. You can, however easily change this in the colors\defaults.xml file. Just go to line 12 of that file and look for the following code:
and change the first two numbers (32) to a higher hexidecimal number such as "50" or "60". If you go all the way up to "FF" then the fanart will be clear with no diffuse, but on the other hand, any text will probably be very difficult to see/read.

Just an FYI. I've added a Roadmap/To Do List in post#2 (see the link in my signature). This list includes all the known bugs in the Alpha that need fixing, as well as misc changes that have been suggested. Please look thru it before requesting something as it's possible someone else has already asked.
I will try to keep it updated as I progress towards a Beta release.

@Amra: The skin looks awesome and deserves to be in "Skin support Forum". I have 2 requests: 1. Please update the skin on a regular basis. Just don't let it die after a few months of support just like many skins have. 2.Move to SVN/ GIT for updates.

1. That's my plan but I certainly understand how real life can get in the way of the best laid plans.
2. I would like to do that but never have previously so there is a definite learning curve involved.

Low priority request:
This is rather subjective, but when using Low List in "Recently Added Episodes", I think I would rather see the shows poster instead of the "Recently Added Episodes" poster.

sialivi Wrote:@AmraSo would I, but it wouldn't work in recently added episodes. Instead, no poster was showing there. I'm still trying to figure things out though, so i will try a couple more things to see if I can get it working.

Just found this . Sounds good. What I like to do with them is give them to Jason to add to the pseudotv repo so that any changes that are made come with the new updates for pseudo and that way you don't have to change anything with your skin. As far as I have found the only thing that needs to be changed in most of the skins is in font.xml from font13 to a normal skin font and good size since it's the only thing I can't set from the Pseudo Skin. However, that's way down the road.
Uncompressed images would be very nice, whenever you find a chance.

An idea for recently added view on home screen.
Instead of a list with fanart, what about 5 posters lined up beside each other in a wrap list. When you go to focus on the first one, the 3 beside it will slide aside, so plot can be shown ?
Hard to explain, since I got no graphic skills it's just an image in my head, hehe

gekados Wrote:Hi Amra.I understand what you are saying and thought about something similar for movies. But since that wouldn't work too well for TV episodes, I went with what I did for simplicity's sake.

Over a week and no updates made? Nooooo!!!
