BTW: Some strings seem to be redundant...
Saw children twice and think some more...

Mudislander, I have just test your skin support for Advanced Launcher. You make a good job, but I have few remarks and suggestions to improve the corresponding views. Take them as you want... that are just my opinion.
For the wide list views :
The launchers view (screen 1) is referring to a games list, but Advanced Launcher is not only dedicated to games but could also be used to manage comics, videos, magazines, websites, applications, etc... This view could also be used by other program add-ons. So I think using the "Items" term instead of "games" will be more appropriate. Strangely the items view is correct (screen 2).
The idea of displaying a list of fanarts instead of thumbs is great. But I think that the list miss to display some informations. For example on screen 2, you can only guess that this list is related to Nintendo 64 games by the games title. It think I will be a good idea to display somewhere on the screen the items (maybe on the bottom bar). Also, I do not know if it will possible to add more information for each item (like release year, genre, ans studio) on this list. It will give more complete information.
I do not know if you have also planning to add similar views displaying thumbs (tall, wide and square) instead of fanarts? For example on the (screen 3) is displaying my Iron Man comics list... A similar list this tall thumbs, will be perfect in this case.
For the media info 2 views :
Only tall covers are displayed correctly. There is no correct views for square covers (ex: icons, PSX games) or wide covers (ex : Nintendo 64, SNES). Also same remark than for the wide list view, it miss some useful item information (platform, genre and studio).

@Angelscry - Thanks, that's brilliant. I'll work on your suggestions. I only had a few dummy applications that I'd made up to work on, and your remarks will go a long way in helping

With RandomAndLastItems script, the way you have code it into Convergence, you can manage only Movie playlist because you don't specifie type= parameter :
So Movie will be use as default.
If a user want to use custom menu to display TV-Shows playlist, you have to call my script this way :
So you have to set up a new option in your skin to define if custom menu is for TV shows (type=Episode) or for Movies (type=Movie)

@mikebzh44 - Hi, Thanks. It will get changed. I wrote that code when the script was first released and have not yet implemented the "type=Episode" yet.
