First and foremost........This skin is amazing, thank you so much!

That being said...I have a couple of questions.

#1: Is there a way to get the Wall view in The season screen of TV shows? I'd find it so much better to be able to choose what season I want in wall view.

#2: Is there a way to make custom movie sets in this skin? This is one of my favorite features of the skin

#3: What do you recommend to get images to replace the background images for like movies, etc?

Hi,

1. No, actually no Wall View for seasons, could be something for the future Smile
2. Don't think i understand what you mean with custom movie sets.
3. What should i recommend? The size? Take whatever you want, all the backgrounds are customizable (single or multi images)

For example, let's say I wanted to do a movie set for all the kids movies. Instead of individual sets for brother bear, or Kung full panda, I could put them all in a kids collection.


I apologize for being vague, what I meant was can you recommend a quality site for background images.

It is posible with movie sets. But for this u have to create the movie set on your own. With EMM or the XBMC Webinterface XWMM. Here is a german howTo for XWMM and MovieSets. http://www.xbmcnerds.com/index.php?page=...adID=10520

But you should use Smartplaylists instead. There u can say please show me all animation movies in my XBMC Database, or all aktion movies, all HD movies and so on. English description see here http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=Smart_Playlist german HowTo u can find here http://www.xbmcnerds.com/index.php?page=...eadID=9738

bouth is not skin relatet u can use it with all skins which supports MovieSets or/and Smartplaylists.

I think he's asking to group, separate collections and have it on home.

Example:

Pixar Collection
Walt Disney Collection

and open them separately from home or submenu items, and that's not possible as i know.
Creating smart playlists could be interesting if while opening that smart playlist you would see only collections, for that the setting group sets in video settings should be enabled and the playlist should be tagged as Pixar Collection genre, that would be a lot of work editing each single kids movies ...

For sure there could be a way to do it with a lot of workaround.
