Hello!

Here's a version that can be used with Eden. I've corrected some bugs and added support for Artwork Downloader. I don't plan to add new features, etc, but I'm in for correcting bugs and doing some cosmetics changes if there's popular support behind it.

Acknowledgement : mcborzu for the creation of Night.

NOTE: Due to conflict with Passion-XBMC repository, I've renamed the skin "Night-Eden" (among other thing). So, if you are with 2.0.1, you might be forced to install "Night-Eden (ver 2.0.2)" in parallel to Night 2.0.1.

DOWNLOADS (Stable release: 2.0.2)
Repo file (for future updates) : http://xbmc-repo-balinus.googlecode.com/...alinus.zip
Manual install (ver 2.0.2 : http://xbmc-repo-balinus.googlecode.com/...-2.0.2.zip
Project Home : http://code.google.com/p/xbmc-repo-balinus/

You install this file by going into the Addons page (inside Settings) and click on "Install from Zip file". Then, you install the skin by going into my repo, through th Addons browser.

Enjoy! Report bugs here or on the google code page.

PS : If you use Night (SVN), from Pasion-XBMC, you might be forced to uninstall your actual version of Night before installing this skin. This is because I use the same directory name (skin.night.svn) as Night (svn) from Passion repo.

CHANGELOG

2.0.x (11-06-201)
  • Corrected Volume bar bug
  • Corrected Logo Panel view bug where it wouldn't correctly when going back from Season/Episode view to TV Show view
  • Full support for Artwork Downloader add-on
  • Corrected bug when using PseudoTV from the Home screen

Well, the crash seems related to the Recently added script. I've removed that part since it's now included directly into Eden.

So my guess is that it won't crash (at least, not for that reason! Wink )

Hi Balinus,

I have tried the skin on and removed the airplay and shireport (installed before Eden made them native). problems has solved. the skin works great on Eden. Million Thanks!

Furthermore, I have noticed there is a little problem with below,

Add Custom Items to Home Menu
-- Custom Favorite
----Set Label
----Set Favorite: Choose the item, but you can not select it and complete the process

Appreciate your work.

Best Regards,
hth0923
Hi Balinus,

I have just found the side-way to overcome it.

choose the program or items from the Favorite menu, then you need to press down arrow, then press OK or Enter to set the item.

Regards,
hth0923

Video and other addons can be only customised by favorite customised menu for home screen. I wish to have TV via the net straight away select from the home screen, so it is the only option so far I have found. E.g catchup TV

Best regards,

Thx for taking up the mantle of developing this. It was also my default skin until I switched to Eden. Now I use a modded version of Neon. Still like some apsects of Night though.

One bug have noticed is that using the backspace button on keyboard when in the movies node and returning to the main menu is that the TVshows button takes focus. Should be Movies keeps focus. (under windowze).

Appreciate the efforts. Keep it up.

Tks!

I can't reproduce your bug though. Using backspace on my keyboard takes me back to Movies (or back to the previous node, whatever the node).. also using Windows (Vista, I'll test later on W7).

I'm using XP. I'll reboot to check. It did seem a weird one.

Update: I rebooted and still the same. Further, it doesn't matter what node I enter, when I back out with the backspace button it always selects the TVSHows button as the default focus. Is this set somewhere? If it is, can you tell me how I can set a default focus on a Wraplist? I want certain submenus to always default to the same button. Thx.

Hi there, greetings from Spain.

Thank you Balinus for offer your support in this gorgeous skin. It was one of my favourites before upgrade to Eden.
I had made some minor changes in order to use all the items (movies, music....) in file mode, just only editing the home.xlm file.

Maybe you can help me....

Is there a way to set the poster view to poster fixed view?

Which code do I need to modify in posterview.xlm?

Thanks in advanced

I'm not sure you can set a default position in a given list. XBMC should remember your last position. Which doesn't seem the case in your setup though!. The command in Night, when you click on Movies is :

Code:
<onclick>XBMC.ActivateWindow(MyVideoLibrary,movietitles,return)</onclick>

This bit of code is compatible with Eden, but it's not Eden "standard". I have to change this code, but the behavior should be the same with the new code. You can try modifying it by replacing the following code in Includes.xml :

Code:
<include name="Movie_Regular">
        <onclick>XBMC.ActivateWindow(MyVideoLibrary,movietitles,return)</onclick>
    </include>

by :

Code:
<include name="Movie_Regular">
        <onclick>ActivateWindow(Videos,movietitles,return)</onclick>
    </include>

Maybe that will change your bug, but I doubt it.

For your playlist matter...there's an option in Night where you can add custom playlist to the Home Menu. That would be the closest thing for your taste imo.

Well, by looking at the code of the Poster View (Viewtype_Poster.xml), it is already a "fixedlist". On my computer, the focused position is fixed. So, maybe I didn't understood correctly your question..?

Good luck in the finals...against Germany? Wink

I'll have a suss and see what I can do. I have to try it on my Linux-based ION yet. Does seem weird. Thx.

You could change this line
Code:
<control type="wraplist" id="595">

to :

Code:
<control type="fixedlist" id="595">

It doesn't change much the behavior though, as fixedlist and wraplist are very similar.
