This is an UNOFFICAL update of the Fusion skin based on Genesis (v.0.9.0).

Fusion Migma

Fusion is by far the most goodlooking skin for XBMC at the moment, Archantur has done an amazing job on the graphics. I just thought it was a shame that the development of it has almost come to a stop. There were just a few things keeping me from using this as my main skin and I have now implemented those and also edited the skin a bit, giving it my own personal look.

One thing people may not agree with is that I have removed a bunch of [LOWERCASE] tags, simply because I thinks it looks better this way. I have only kept them where I personally think it looks good. Feel free to re-add them if you don't agree with me on this.

I have had some help by many before me for I have implemented some mods and fixes into this that were already out there. These people are: mstef, Crookas, saangler, >>X<<, tungmeister and probably many more. All credit to Archantur for the design and the skin itself basically.

Here are some of the new features:
* Custom Backdrops support for Home - Fading Backdrops like in Aeon, Night etc.
* Weather Info on Home
* Added stop button for OSD
* Completely reworked Video Info
* Reworked Recently and Featured on Home
* Improved performance on Home
* Improved performance on Wall view
* Studio Flags support for Video Info
* Studio Flags support for TV Shows
* ClearLOGO support for TV Shows
* ClearLOGO support for Music
* Extra Fanart support for TV Shows
* Extra Thumbs support for Video Info
* Cinema Experience support
* Logo Downloader support
* Genre icon and fanart support
* CDArt support for music
* Added MPAA ratingsflags
* New Viewtype: Grid - Finished Archanturs view
+ some bugfixes and some edits of viewtypes for better functionality

Things to do for upcoming releases:
* Add support for Weather Plus Add-on in fullscreen weather info
* Make a Grid view for Advanced Launcher
* Add support for more custom items
- please suggest features here and I will think about it
- i probably forgot some minor bugs and things in the making so just mention these in the comments and i will fix them on a 1.0.1 release.

Nice.

You might want to zip it up so people can use the 'Install from ZIP' option in XBMC.

Oh, did not think that was possible when installing skins. I will do that on the next update Smile

Thanks for this, makes for a nice weekend surprise. Smile

I wanted to try this out on pre-Eden (I heeded the warning that it wasn't tested). Well I made a change to the addon.xml file and it's working perfectly fine for me (so far).

All I did was change in addon.xml is:
Code:
<requires>
    <import addon="xbmc.gui" version="2.11"/>
    <import addon="script.randomitems" version="1.0.1"/>
  </requires>

to

Code:
<requires>
    <import addon="xbmc.gui" version="3.00"/>
    <import addon="script.randomitems" version="3.0.2"/>
  </requires>

Your mileage may vary of course, but thought there may be some nightly users that'd might like giving it a spin.

Made some minor changes to the Grid view as well to make use of landscape.jpg files instead of the fanart. And removed the Icon code for banners to keep that split second squashed poster from showing before the banner.jpg loads. Just personal preferences is all.

Really great to see Fusion still active, it's a really slick skin. Arcanthur really did a tremendous job on it.

After a couple of days of use I can say it feels pretty good running on pre-Eden (with the changes to the addon.xml). I even kinda hacked in Season level fanart instead of extrafanart for the Seasonwrap view and Episode list view.

The only requests/suggestions I can ask for right now would be TVTunes integration and season level fanart. A toggle for the WideIcon TV and Grid views to use landscape.jpg or fanart images. Lastly a TV guide implementation with the TV Next Aired addon.

Overall great work Smile

Working very well in Pre-Eden. The only thing i can't make work are the extrathumbs that i guess are supossed to be shown in the video info screen, i get a dark (blank) space where extra thumbs have to be shown. Everything else in the video info screen is showing perfectly.
And, btw, congrats. It's a great skin, i like it!

Edit: just noticed something strange... in my movies library, still don't know why, but, there're movies i can't press the i button for info, and i can't even see the option in the C menu. I will take deeper view to it.

Edit2: Forget about this last thing, it's not related to the skin. It's happening to me also in other skins.

frellAn,

Thank you so much for this! Fusion is my favorite skin. Would you consider adding the media flags to the postershelf view for movies? This is the only missing piece for me in this view, which is the one I use most. Thanks.

Regards,

Bart

I have mine as TVSHOWNAME/extrafanart, that's the way the skin is set up and it works for me.

You mean season level fanart as the background fanart when you are viewing episodes and also when you are selecting seasons? I can probably implement this. TVTunes integration and TVGuide will most likely not come with next realese but I plan to implement it in the future Smile

Yep exactly that. I did a really ugly hack to make it work for me (killed extrafanart, but that was okay for my particular setup) Smile The effect is really nice when going through seasons and episodes in Fusion. (Season wrap view really stands out with it working on the season level)

What'dya think about a landscape.jpg option for the wide icon/grid views for TV Shows? I put it into Grid and it worked out pretty well.

Thanks for considering my ideas and for putting your time into this Smile
