Exclamation  Yet Another Confluence Mod
Post: #1
This is a Modded version of Jezz's new Confluence Lite that will allow the user to add their own choice of items to the main menu bar.

Small Print - This Mod uses more resorces than Jezz's skin. This Mod is less stable than Jezz's skin. This Mod is slower than Jezz's skin.

Supported add-ons
These will need to be downloaded and installed by the user as the skin does not automate this.

script.xbmc.intro.movie XBMC's intro movie
script.cinema.experience - Support thread
Add-on Metadata Actors Limited Support ATM context menu only
Addon - Show Movie Sets Info - Needs webserver to be running
weather.wunderground-0.1.9 required for new weather panel

The prefered installation method is to download and install the repository from HERE. Once Mudisle Repo is installed you will find Confluence Lite Mod listed under "skin". Using this method will insure all requirements are met.

The source code may be found on github

Wiki Page started by Kevjs1982 can be found here

As of v1.1.3 all wilson.joe themes are included with the repo install - Source and binary files may be found on his Git Account

Users willing to help with language translations may request to help at Transifex - Confluence.Lite.Mod

Have fun and thanks to Jezz_X for a great skin

HERE are a few simple playlists to help fill out the main menu. They're not mine but are playlists I've come across while playing with various skins. Obviously the best place to extract and store them to would be into the directory ..\XBMC\userdata\playlists\video\

Various TV and Hulu playlists from wilson.joe

It'll be the file extension of your playlist. ATM only looks for .m3u let me know what you're using and I'll do another entry on the select option menu, or alternativly pick up everything in the music playlist directory - although there is a potential for a lot of problems that way.

ahh, that explains it I got xsp in my music and video playlist folders.
and in one of the folders I got pls files for online radio stations,
those I just created a link to on the submenu to pop up the folder
in file mode so I could see the thumbs for each one of them.

Worked like a charm, thanks..

added the following to the DialogVideoInfo.xml at the end so I could edit the
genres of all videos..

Code:
<!--- EDIT VIDEO LIBRARY -->
                    <control type="button" id="101">
                        <description>Edit library</description>
                        <visible>container.content(movies)</visible>
                        <include>ButtonInfoDialogsCommonValues</include>
                        <onclick>XBMC.RunScript(script.library.editor)</onclick>
                        <label>Edit</label>
                    </control>
                    <control type="button" id="102">
                        <description>Edit Library</description>
                        <visible>container.content(episodes) | container.content(TVShows) | container.content(seasons)</visible>
                        <include>ButtonInfoDialogsCommonValues</include>
                        <onclick>XBMC.RunScript(script.library.editor)</onclick>
                        <label>Edit</label>
                    </control>
                    <control type="button" id="103">
                        <description>Edit Library</description>
                        <visible>container.content(musicvideos)</visible>
                        <include>ButtonInfoDialogsCommonValues</include>
                        <onclick>XBMC.RunScript(script.library.editor)</onclick>
                        <label>Edit</label>
                    </control>

and added cinema experience
Code:
<control type="button" id="14">
                       <description>Home Cinema Experience</description>
                       <include>ButtonInfoDialogsCommonValues</include>
                       <label>Cinema</label>
                       <onclick>Dialog.Close(MovieInformation)</onclick>
                       <onclick>Playlist.Clear</onclick>

MrMills, I know the script.library.editor only does videos, is there one for audio?

Hey,Mudislander are you going to bring all the features of convergence, if
so I don't think it remain light. Smile

To be honest, at first I was just testing the main menu system as it was supposed to go into Convergence. But I've been hammering away at Convergence for over a year continually and it's feeling a bit stale, so will give it a bit of a break. I've now got this mod on my main system and am growing quite fond of it as it's fresh and clean. First thoughts were to keep it lite, but I keep thinking of various scripts that I'm used to using eg. Cinema Experience - Which will be an option on the main menu soon.The wife is also jumping up and down over not having the genre poster view she uses, so that'll have to come over. Right now I'm adding watchlist.script and script.randomandlastitems which I think will work well (Unless your whole main menu is full of playlists then the system will probably crawl) - So yeah probably not going to stay lite Big Grin

I'll add script.library.editor in for you so you don't have to keep re-doing it, Do you prefer Cinema Experience in the videodialog though - I always prefered it on the home menu.

@MrMills - I also only know of the video DB script.library.editor

Thanks, have found it and will fix it today.
Actually have found a couple of other bugs such as the home screen labels are sometimes doubled when you come back from the media player and I'm having a problem with the visible conditions of the random media from playlists - if you have under 10 you get blank squares. I know why this one happens, but we may have to live with it for a while.
