  • Bigger fonts at some places
  • Half-star ratings

Project Home

Acknowledgement : igotdvds for the creation of Simplicity.

Change this code in Home.xml :

Code:
<onclick>ActivateWindow(VideoFiles)</onclick>

to :

Code:
<onclick>ActivateWindow(Videos,Files)</onclick>

Around line 817. Do the same for line 1029 if you want that the submenu "Files" under Videos icon has the same behaviour.

Struggling to find this section!!!

Line 686-696, inside the wraplist id="9000", for item layout. Modify the width and height attributes.

Code:
<control type="image">
                    <posx>55</posx>
                    <posy>75</posy>
                    <align>center</align>
                    <width>90</width>
                    <height>90</height>
                    <colordiffuse>40FFFFFF</colordiffuse>
                    <texture diffuse="icons/icondiffuse.png" fallback="icons/programsicon.png">$INFO[ListItem.Thumb]</texture>            
                    <animation effect="fade" start="100" end="0" time="100" condition="ControlGroup(9001).HasFocus">Conditional</animation>        
                    <visible>Skin.HasSetting(AlternateHome)</visible>
                </control>

And again line 728-755 for focused layout.

You'll need some tweaking here and there to align correctly the Lights illuminating the focused icon (line 756-781) and the image that goes over the icons (so that the unfocused icons are partly hidden) in lines 1702-1710. Try to give a higher height to this last image (home-bottom.png) and also give a wider width so that the aspect ratio is kept.

Good luck! Share your mods. Smile

Thanks for the quick responses!
Will try this and let you know!
Looking to have all the scrolling items at the bottom, but with the focused icon large in the middle instead of the large header. Gonna try the mods when I'm back home, will update! But this is within a Movie - Genre Selection Page I made.

I can move it around and size it up nicely, problem is that it cuts off the top half of the focussed icon... struggling to find the setting to fix that glitch!

You have a screenshot?

Try to give a higher height to the wraplist id="9000". My guess is that the culprit is there.

Thanks,

It should yes, unless you specify it to be hidden in the Videos settings of XBMC.

Hey Balinus,

I just installed Simplicity v2 and love it, I just have one concern I have tried to disable clear logo images in the skin's settings and they continue to show up in the views I'm using. I would delete the clear logos from the folder I have it saved on, but I'm sharing the folder with 3 other media centers - and I don't want to remove the log from the other two.

Any help would be appreciated,
teh

Thanks!

Ok, I think I made these clear logos as default in these views in the last update. I'll add a visible condition to reflect the skin settings in th next small release (i.e. similar code fixes). Maybe next week.
