Cirrus Extended v3 - Support thread
Use this thread to discuss about problems, enhancements and updates to the skin.
butchabay has "retired" on this project to have time for other projects. So the support is on us Smile

The skin is now available through the Official XBMC-Repo up from version 3.1.0 for Gotham
Skin name / addon id changes to skin.cirrus.extended


The Git (Frodo) version will be still available from the repository.passion.xbmc.org


So feel free to make your suggestion, any idea for new features, themes, enhancements etc. is welcome.

Thanks butchabay for bringing it so far.

The code can be found on the following Github:
Keep in mind, that before you install from master.zip you need to remove the file ../addons/packages/master.zip
If you forget this step XBMC will install from the zip file in ../addons/packages/ directory

If you find any problems you can report them here:
https://github.com/paradix/skin.cirrus.e....v3/issues

Latest updates
  • Library Editor thnx to phil65 again available in the Info Dialog for movies (episodes etc. to come - follow thread)
  • Switched from in-skin script.favourites to latest version 4.0.8 - just download from mirror
  • Configurable clearlogo for TV Shows in the recent/recommended/custom playlists view added

  • Rightlist view adjusted for moviesets - requires script.extendedinfo - version with fixed issue (backslash problem) available in my github

[Image: screenshot007tt.png]

Hi,

Nice to see the return of CE. Thanks guys for your work.
@ vicmanpergar: I really love discart feature.
Do you think you can add an open/close case with discart inside?
Is it only for rightlist logo view or for rightlist in general? (banner, classic...)

For new features i think it should be great to work on the home widget. What was done on Aeon Nox is really awesome. Maybe you can take inspiration here.Wink

Oh, it took me ages to code such a simple thing, but i never coded before, and i'm a complete null coding.
The view i liked the most (and i liked a lot of Cirrus viewtypes) was the rightlist logo view, and the only thing i was missing was the disc art.
So coded myself (sweating blood, lol). Since it seems Cirrus v3 is going on, and it will be updated on a periodical basis now, it would be really great to add it on the main project if devs like it, otherwise, i will need to save the mod and modificate each time cirrus is updated.
So, about cases opening and showing the disc, i'm afraid i can do nothing, as i told, i know zero about coding. But i hope cirrus devs will answer this topic to u.
On a personal note, and this is only my opinion, i think the disck slippipng up looks better at least in this view type. However, opening cases would look better in horizontal views like showcase, for example.

OK i played around with the last GIT version i've found a problem with the widget for playlist.
It show the correct film but doesn't show poster and fanart. Maybe a problem with the script and the news rules for artwork naming?

@GuiZ if you can, please place a issue on github with a description of the problem and attach a log if possible.

@vicmanpergar for now we will try to finish work on creating a stable code base for the next final version. Next thing will be thinking about enchantments or changes to the current feature set of the skin.

But keep on posting proposals for further modifications of the skin. At least this way there will be a base to decide what to do next.

Hi,

Nice to see you guys, working on CEv3.
Butchabay work was amazing. CE FTW Smile !

I've already do a suggestion long time ago ...
http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid...#pid958753
If you can do this one day, it would be great.

I dont know, if it's a bug, or just me who is very tired,
but i dont find the skin setting (in setting option).
I installed the zip from github this morning.

I remember (now :x) the change in Frodo.
But i was confused because other skin still have "skin button" in the setting left panel.
Anyway, this new location makes sense.

I have other suggestion/bug found.
I think it would be nice to have recommended item for music (with skin widget addon).
I have recommended item (on horizontal layout) for tv-show. CEv2 was based on watchlist script (and randomlastitem script), but they have been remplaced by skin widget addon service. Currently the skin shows me the good item/tvshow, but when i press OK/play nothing happens.

Hi,

I still cant play recommended item from homescreen.
I uninstall previous version, get the new zip from github. I tried on my linux (xbmcbuntu), and also on my windows install.
Other skin seems to be OK (try with aeon nox, T! skin)

I found this info in the log :

Code:
[22:18:05 T:2925501296 WARNING: The python script "/home/gates/.xbmc/addons/service.skin.widgets/default.py" has left several classes in memory that we couldn't clean up. The classes include: Monitor,Window,Player

Can someone confirm it works ?

i have reworked the Submenus a little bit.
Changed:
- color
- size
Added:
- submenu for addon
- submenu for power
- submenu for homemenu playlist option 1-6

Maybe you will have a look and add some of it to the Skin Code http://netload.in/datei49mJA7Sw6J/Cirrus...nu.zip.htm
