For sure you've the XBMC Camelot stable release, you should install Dharma Beta 2:

http://mirrors.xbmc.org/releases/win32/x..._beta2.exe

Place the unpacked zip file "skin.showmix" in the addon folder: C:\Programs\XBMC\Addons.

You must have tv shows in your library to see it. So add scource, set content for tv shows, update library and you will see it.

@ ZombieRobot
Thanx for posting Screenshots.
There really seem to be a bug in "configure menus" and in the "widget" section.
I am running Dharma Beta 2 in Win7 Ultimate.
What do you think to change Fonts in Home Menu to the Original Aeon Fonts or pick one from here:

Hi ZombieRobot and butchabay!

thx for your efforts and for keeping showmix alive. Highly appreciated!

I'm still running 10.00 beta1 on asrock 330, ubuntu 9.10 with lots of updates and patching. I switched to aeon65 when I accidentally installed dharma. Was on showmix 2.51. Now I'm back with showmix - thx to you guys. So far it's running very smooth.

There are some minor issues I'm not sure if it's a result of my not so clean install, or if it has something to do with the skin itself.

- the font alignment in the settings main screen (1st screen when you press settings) is centered and the taglines (eg. User Accounts for the Profile submenu) are overlapping. All other menus seem to be ok.

- where is the addons menu? pardon, if I'm too stupid/lazy to find

- I second the (optional) use of the original aeon fonts. Well, I'm just 6 months w/ XBMC and I really like those fonts that were linked on the showmix project site for 2.5 / 2.51 release.

best

This is the bug list i will be adding and updating this list as i work on show-mix so if you have a bug for me i will add it to the list also check here for a list of fixed bugs.

I will continue to work on the original show-mix when i can as bug fixes only in my time. because show-mix is andy and Azidos work i want to keep it that way as i feel i will that they had an amazing take on the aeon skin it was very very clean and i don't think i can do it justice they did an amazing job.

Hence Aeon Evolution / Show-mix Evolution i have decided to take this on full time to hone in on skinning better (NOVA is still under construction but feeling like i need to work on my skinning skills to do it justice)
Also remember i an no DJH and have little to know graphics skills so things will take time.

Hi there,

This is most lovely - excellent work. It would be simply perfect, for me, if the original font were to be made available for the home menu. Other than that, absolutely stunning, awesome work.

I can't decide between this one and MQ 2 - both are marvelous.

Don't know how much work it would be, but have a look at MQ 2's "Pause" function - the cover art pops up, and one has the option of seeing a large "PAUSED" greyed-out word in the middle of the screen. Works well. Either way, well done.
