stoli Wrote:@shinu - Your mock-ups look good an I'll probably add the plot option (pretty sure Amra had it at the top before and I removed it.)
Yeah, I had it appearing at the top when the info command was pressed.

To clarify why I did that, I found it helpful mostly with television shows. I pretty much know the plot to all 800 or so movies I have but when you have as many episodes (~10,000) to as many TV shows (~200) that I have on my HTPC, it can be very helpful.

Sorry I don't have an image available when watching a TV Show but you get the idea.

yeah i know what u mean. it's impossible to kno the details of every episode of every show. but what do u think about putting it at the bottom Arma? like in the mockup. a good idea? and what do u think about the logo and thumb showing together? here's a screen of what it looks like in Fusion (where i got the idea)...

@shinu
First off, let me say that this is stoli's puppy now so he has the final say in any changes. I was merely showing what I had done originally & explaining why.

Now, as far as my personal preferences go, I tend to like the plot details (all the extra text) of any given video to be separate from the main OSD. It just looks a little more organized & clean. Again, though, that is my personal preference. That's not to say that what you want is wrong, it just boils down again to any given person's preferences. I think it was mentioned before, but if stoli doesn't make an option for this I'm sure someone will in the future when the skin has been completed.


- Shinu - 2012-02-10 17:33

yeah, i kno. i was just curious to kno ur thoughts. but i'm sure stoli will put something together to satisfy everyone.

I have an issue when I download a subtitle for a movie, I can't seen to find the option to offset the subtitle timing. Is this a Metropolis skin thing? As I can do it in other skins...

I'm on an ATV2 btw.

Continued tweaks to the music views. Added Artist Bio and Album info and more Logo support in views:

looks nice. a bit cramped placing it on top but it looks good.

Question: i've been trying to make my own mods to the info screen, but the changes i make in the Includes.xml doesn't show in the skin. i'm i modding the wrong place?

I cant seem to get the script for 'extrafanart' (for my tv shows) to run...any ideas? I select it and nothing happens. Thanks

That's an addon and not part of the skin.

Will there be an option for displaying extrafanart?

It already does if you have an /extrafanart folder for movies, tv shows or music.
