MOD: BannerWrap View - shorty12 - 2011-04-18 18:58

Hi guys,

first of all I want to thank Arcanthur for his great work on Fusion. It is my favourite xbmc skin and I love it. One thing I missed though was a bannerview for tv shows (which may come in the future of course). So I decided to mod one of the existing views to create a bannerview. Here's a screenshot:

Like I said I only edited an existing view, "the posterwrap 3"-view to be accurate. I tried to add the view without "sacrificing" another one but I failed XD. I was inspired by the Bannerslide view of the simplicity skin (which was created by igotdvds), but I also tried to stay true to arcanthur's vision. So credit goes to both arcanthur and igotdvds for their amazing work. Even though I'm pretty much a noob when it comes to these kinds of things I think the result is usable at least until arcanthur himself creates a bannerview in the future.

Edit: After using the view on my tv I felt the need to tweak it a little. Here's the result:

I think this is more consistent with the rest of the skin.

Here's the link to the file:

Just copy the files into your skin folder and you're good to. I hope you guys like itSmile

I'm really sorry guys. I looked through everything once again and it seems that I edited another file that I didn't upload. I updated the link in the first post. Hopefully it will work now. Sorry againWink
