[ALPHA RELEASE] Welo - a new skin in development for XBMC

[Image: LUjEr.jpg]


Here's the alpha release of Welo skin! Big Grin

Please note the alpha is incomplete. The missing/incomplete parts will be added for the alpha/beta releases, ready for the final release. Additional views will be added after the final release. Please note that i won't be taking requests at this stage. Only bug reports please!

Please use a recent nightly build for Welo skin use. Welo skin isn't supported on Dharma or Dharma 10.1.

Welo is now on my repository, so it will be easier to push changes and for you to update. Download the repo file from here...

http://xbmc-repo-liquidskin76.googlecode...skin76.zip

Install the above .zip file to XBMC via 'Settings - Add-ons - Install from zip file'. Once installed, my repo will appear under the 'Get Add-ons' section. If installing for the first time, you will need to perform a force refresh on the repo for it's content to appear.

See the post below for a full change log.

Massive thanks to Welo... without him there wouldn't be a Welo skin! Thanks to Hitcher for the initial coding he did and advice given, and to Jezz/Jeroen for advice given. Wink

Enjoy!

Fantastic, and very strange as I was just sat here thinking I wondered when a release will be out and here it is. I will give it a test tonight on my ATV2 and see how it performs. Thanks.

Cool! Very interested how it will run on other systems as i developed on quite a high spec windows machine.

Cheers

Everyone...

Take special note that the dialog textures will change (i've temporarily used a basic mod of Foundation), and that some animations are missing.

Cheers

The setup screens are bit simple so maybe i'll so something later. Welo had no mockups for this so i kinda knocked up something and it's stuck since!

HansP Wrote:ialso the TV shows picture is not right ...

In what way? Buggy or design?

HansP Wrote:maybe make like a bannerwall ??

Remember that additional views will come along later, however yep, i will do a banner view.

Cheers

You're using banners instead of posters.

Just a quick thing I have noticed...

Star Rating
Looking at the image it makes you think this film only has a 1 star rating when infact it has a 4 star rating... Should it not be that the stars light white with the ratings rather than black and it being backwards? Look at Avatar in your image for instance too, should that not be 5 white stars?
