Convergence is aimed at xbmc 11 and is a skin based primarily on Confluence with whatever mods take my fancy. I however did first see the transparent panels on Influence as well as the script to incorporate various items on the home screen. The difference between the two will get further apart as this skin evolves and I’m sure Influence has its own path to follow.

liking this quite a bit. is it possible to implement extrafanart into the visualization section?
- Mudislander - 2011-05-12 11:23
Thanks. Yeah I like that idea. Right now I’m getting more video library views done but will start on your idea as well. Would just have to check that it doesn’t slow down the skin too much crawling through folders looking for extrafanart.
Update v2.0.5 - Mudislander - 2011-05-13 21:26
Added Support for MusicViz Extrafanart - Request by venealis.
YouTube added to Home menu by default, User can hide if required.
Skin now supports UK Ratings and Studio Logos, Watched overlay can now be disabled.
Added three new movie views - Wallstream, Halfwall and Alt Poster View. These walls still require a bit of tweaking but are working on my test machine. Once my main box with a decent size library upgrades the small niggles can be found.
My previous problems with unmet dependencies seem to be over so script.favourites-1.0.6 is back on the import list when the skin installs along with script.tvtunes-0.9.0
Unfortunately if users have added their own genre fanart it will be wiped out by the upgrade, so please make sure you have backup copies.
update v2.0.6 - Mudislander - 2011-05-15 16:39
Few bugs found
- BugFix MusicViz not defaulting to orig fanart if no extrafanart
- BugFix Analouge Hour Hand to Move on the Half Hour (eg 9:45 now shows 9:45 not 8:45)
- BugFix Weather+ Views Not Remembering Default View
Added Showcase View to Movie Listings

Quote:@Mudislander is it also possible to disable your logo of Convergence in the menu's?Hi There. Sorry the logo is stuck there, and to be honest my feeling is that a skin should be proud enough to show it's name. However if you want to remove the logo from the copy on your machine just edit Home.xml and delete the following from near the bottom of the file.

I agree that you have to show your name , but it is a bit too much on the screen.
- Mudislander - 2011-05-17 20:36
@sjobbels - Fair enough, I see your point. If there are a couple more requests to remove the logo from the home screen I'll do it.
