i really love confluence, its a beautiful, light skin which just looks phantastic. thats why i just made a few modifications, so this is really, really, really a minimal mod.
since i dont use music library or music videos yet, it might be that you run into some issues. please let me know if you notice something. in changelog you can see which xml files have been attended, so it should be easy to follow which changes i have done so far when comparing with original confluence files.
custom strings for settings are only available in german and english language at the moment.
actually, this mod was not intended to be shown in public, it was an optimizing of confluence for my needs and usage on my atv2s. so if you dont like it, please dont blame me.
big thx to jezz_X (Team XBMC) for his great work on confluence and mad-max (xbmcnerds.com) for all the help and ideas. some of the modifications where 'stolen' from mad-max's confluence mod, but since i do not need such a big modification, i thought of doing something smaller, on my own, for learning purposes.
again: there are no 'real' or 'heavy' modifications in here, just odds and ends to make confluence looking perfect for my needs.
you can see my viewmodes in the screenshots and thats what it has been optimized for. i am no skinner and most of this was done with try&error, so it might be that this minimal mod has some dirty coding in it. i started working on this just a few days ago and i never did any designing/coding before.
