What file do I have to modify to change the home screen in Confluence Vertical? Also, as I understand, the skinning method has changed for Eden - where can I get info for that? Specifically, I want to add a movie file folder directly to the home screen.

if you want to change the home menu then you need to edit home.xml in the addons dir which f you installed this skin is next too your userdata dir

Yes, I did that. However, what worked in the previous version (ActivateWindow(VideoFiles,Cartoons), does not work now... I've read the system has been changed a bit, but I cannot find any specific details.

Does anyone have a link for this? I swear it was there a couple days ago and now I can't find it browsing the skin library from within XBMC and the link in the first post appears to be dead.

Hi guys,

it seems that Confluence Vertical is no longer available from the default download location as indicated in the first post?

Any clues?

Thx

Edit: Duh!! Confluence Vertical is in the default xbmc add-on repo...

Hi,

I recently changed to pre eden and thought wtf when I saw how much confluence had changed and was keen to go back to the vertical way. However I decided to give it a go and now realise that it is in fact a really great skin and am sticking with it.

Great skin, thanks for the hard work

Unfortunately I have had to roll back to dharma because there are some pretty nasty corruption bugs in watching videos in eden still Sad (nothing to do with your skin)

No way to get the new horizontal skin on dharma I suppose?

Cheers

after the latest changes in the weather+ addon - the top-screen temperature indicator is gone unless the Weather.IsFetched var is removed from Home.xml

Ok so I got into the home.XML file and removed the "weather is fetched". Now I have the deg C in. The corner, but it shows the raincloud vs. The temp. I.e. It shows the weather type vs the temp in the corner? Stare

is this the right link to get the source for the vertical? https://github.com/JezzX/xbmc/tree/Confl...confluence
or is there another link to get the source file? i want to edit the media folder with my own images and pack my own texture file but i need the orig media folder unpacked.. can anyone point me in the right direction

Edit: it appears to not be the one i am looking for, as the media images are not the same , i want to keep some of the core images but edit some flagging studios etc... any help with the confluence vertical eden skin unpacked would be really appreciated

hey!! Tha 2.1.0 update actually broke the weather+ (3.0.1 old pre-eden version)!

1. The right part of the screen (the forecasts) is completely blank http://pastebin.com/ixrYbBMY
2. The mod to get the weather icon and temp value in the top of the home screen is not present/not active also http://forum.xbmc.org/showpost.php?p=946...tcount=674

Then I suggest you update because it works fine for me and a build as old as Jun 23 2011 wouldn't support the new way the eden addon works anyway
