Just a crazy idea......

Is it possible this view :

to become to something like this ? :

I don't now if this is impossible for the potentials of the skinning engine of XBMC but I saw it somewhere and i've imagine it as a viewtype similar to Xperience Slanted Wall View.

hi!

i love the Xperience-skin, but needed a better presentation of the listing of games using the Advanced Launcher.

so i modified the Info Panel and created two new Views for Xperience:

1. Games Info Panel with Labels

example for launcher-items:
[Image: v5v3gk.jpg]
(launcher items are automatically presented with this TV-series-like layout)

example for rom-items:
[Image: 34zn3fb.jpg]
(rom-items are automatically presented with this episole-like layout)

2. Games Info Panel with Square-Boxes
this is the same as above, but with large square-boxes instead of the labels in the list.

Download Mirrors:

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=EBIVD8RG

Instructions:
Code:
1. Modify \XBMC\addons\skin.xperience\720p\MyPrograms.xml:

- EDIT LINE 4:
OLD: <view>50</view>
NEW: <views>50,68,69</views>

- ADD AFTER LINE 7:
<include>Games-Views</include>

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

2. Modify \XBMC\addons\skin.xperience\720p\Include_Views.xml:

- ADD AFTER LINE 14:
<include file="Viewtype_Games Info Panel.xml" />

- ADD AFTER LINE 54:
<include name="Games-Views">
    <include>Viewtype_Games Info Panel</include>
</include>

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

3. Copy "Viewtype_Games Info Panel.xml" to \XBMC\addons\skin.xperience\720p\

Very nice. I am new to emulators, and I have to confess advanced launcher is out of my league for now...
So I just enabled the movie poster view in the program section...and I am happy with the result Smile

All Kudos to XBMCG33K and Blackbold for creating such a beautiful skin and Marjanovich for giving the idea in the first place a few months ago

Download and replace in your 720p skin folder

Damnit ... forget my ignorance.
Kudos to all three of you gents. I can only imagine what it takes to achieve such a level of quality.

Digging a little in xperience views xml I found a Episode panel view which is not enabled by default

It seems there is a kind of lag problem with the last icon. I know Team Blackbolt is looking for perfection, so I can understand it was removed before release.
In your opinion, any chance of fixing it, because it looks very nice apart from above mentionned small problem, and it fits very well the rest of the skin imho.

This is a small mod (requested here) on Tri Panel View order showing the movie poster>movie info instead of the default order movie info>movie poster.

[Image: 1g3y29.jpg]

Viewtype Tri Panel Mod

Unzip the files to 720p folder and overwrite (BACKUP FIRST) the old ones.

The right way for this is to be available to toggle in the View Specific Options, (like the wall panel view with slanted/straight) but i don't know the way to do it. My code skills end up here.
