Please include support for artist logos, cdart, etc. You can make the skin at par with various dependencies for Eden. For. e.g., artwork downloader has replaced logo downloader. You can upload at google code and create a svn there. It will be helpful as incremental updates are pushed and no need to create zip or rar files, each time updates are made. Best of luck with your work

UPDATES

Since 2.1.x, there a new TV view added (which was taken from Simplicity skin). Being my favorite view, I added it to Shade-Eden :

Version 2.2.x has full support for the plugin "Artwork Downloader" and replace "logo-downloader". It is implemented in bulk mode (under Skin's setting) and solo mode (under the information view of a given movie/TV series).

Wow nice work. Is it also possible in the tvshow view at episode level to go up to the latest episode (you can only go down, so with 20 episodes it's quite some pressing Smile.

And is it possible to add the HD (1080/720p) / SD icon to the subtitle menu, so I can see which type of subtitle I have to download?

Great work!

Indeed, I see this behavior with a "Large Episode" and "Season View". The other views, you can go "up" to the last episodes... I'll look into it. edit - A quick workaround is to set your remote with a shortcut "Hide/Show Watched".

Not sure if that's possible. I'm guessing that is more to do with the subtitles addon script.?

As of ver 2.3.1 this bug is corrected. You can now go from "Go to root" to the lastest episode of the list.

I agree! :-) Favorite view for TV Series. It's taken from Simplicity, another great skin from igotdvds.
As of 2.3.1, expect bigger release, but less often. I find 2.3.1 stable and highly usable on a daily basis. I have some more ideas for cosmetics.
  • Show the +30s and +10min on the screen, when the user is doing a small skip (right direction pad) and a big step (up on direction pad)
  • When the player is paused I'd like to have 2 big vertical transparent bar
  • French translation

If people see some bugs, please tell me! Either here or on google code (there's an "issue" page).

Again, if you want something, you better ask! Smile

Thanks!

Again wow, nice adjustments!

I've already asked about the hd and sd icons. But they are not situated in the subtitle menu, but just on pause (My mistake). Is that possible, so I can still see which tv-show / movie I've downloaded and choose the right subtitle. See example of convergence:

[Image: screenshot20120315at214.png]

It would be nice to see it on shade's pause menu Smile

And is it possible to show only the recently added items in a thumb view. The current view is almost taking the complete screen.

Thanks and keep up the good work!

oh I see now what you mean! I guess it wouldn't be too hard to implement and I'll link it with the "Enable Movie poster on seekbar" and "Enable clearart on seekbar".

About the recently added, I agree that it takes too much place. Just to be sure, you mean the recently added on the home screen?
