Hello!

Nice skin overall. I like the "fit and finish". Quick and smooth for the eyes.

May I suggest a higher "scrolltime" for your lists and banner views? Right now it seems to be set at 80. I find it hard to see the "scrolling" when the banners and list view are used. It kind of jumps. I see that for posters, it is set at 160. Looks much smoother imho.

Also, just a quick question. How did you manage to have "half" star rating? What kind of trick do you use for that? I want to implement that in Shade-Eden.

Thanks!

That took a while to work out but here's how I did it -

PHP Code:
<texture fallback="Star_Ratings/NA.png">$INFO[ListItem.Rating,Star_Ratings/,.png]</texture

That's the easy bit here's the harder part creating all the textures -

Hey Balinus,

I've increased the scroll times to 160 for the wall and banner views. It does look better.

Cheers for the heads up!
