Great mod, I've been looking for a way to rearrange the home menu to my liking. Nod

I have one small problem though: I can't get my latest movies or TV shows to appear in my home screen. I installed randomandlastitems 1.2.2 and selected "Show recently added videos" but no luck: the script displays Random items instead of Recently added items.

I found these lines in the log:
Code:
10:38:56 T:3604   DEBUG: CApplication::ExecuteXBMCAction : Translating XBMC.RunScript(script.randomandlastitems,playlist=$INFO[Skin.String(HomeItemThreePlaylist)],method=$VAR[RandomOrLastAction],limit=10,unwatched=$VAR[RandomOrLastUnWatched],resume=False,propertie=HomePlayListThree)
10:38:56 T:3604   DEBUG: CApplication::ExecuteXBMCAction : To XBMC.RunScript(script.randomandlastitems,playlist=special://profile/playlists/video/TV Shows.xsp,method=Random,limit=10,unwatched=False,resume=False,propertie=HomePlay​ListThree)

I don't know that much about scripting but I think it should be "method=Recent" in the last line.

ATM, I haven't added the option to choose, was trying to save on language strings that would have to be translated Wink

However if you're willing to edit your "guisettings.xml" in your XBMC userdata folder there's any easy fix.

Search for
Code:
<setting type="bool" name="skin.confluence.lite.mod.UseLastNotRandom">false</setting>

and change the value to "true" eg.

Code:
<setting type="bool" name="skin.confluence.lite.mod.UseLastNotRandom">true</setting>

I find it helps if XBMC is not running as sometimes it returns the setting to what it has currently in memory.


BTW if anyone's interested

Code:
<setting type="bool" name="skin.confluence.lite.mod.UseUnWatchedPlaylist">false</setting>

Will toggle Unwatched only in script randomandlastitems

Also

Code:
<setting type="bool" name="skin.confluence.lite.mod.ABCKeyBoard">false</setting>

If set to true will return the ABC virtual keyboard instead of the qwerty one on by default.

These are all switches to be implemented sometime in the future

If Anyone's interested 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 --> XBMC\userdata\playlists\video\

You're welcome - I should say things like, make a copy first etc. guisettings.xml is a pretty serious file. Bugger it up and you're back at the default skin and settings Smile

Also the label underneath the covers will still say "random" - Will change that soon (ish)

Yeah, I know not to play with fire without a fire-proof suit Big Grin
I got burnt once, when I installed AudioEngine without backing up and then couldn't get sound from the official Eden.

Now...how do I add a LowList or a RightList view? Methinks I have some reading to do! Laugh

Mad-Max's views would probably drop in quite easily. If anyone does a view for the mod - that I like - it'll be included Smile

To start off with there's two I'll be adding - First a media info view (my favourite of the moment) and the genre view (wife's favourite view - needed to run mod on main TV)

NB: Not Yet Included
