Is the following possible with this skin ?



I want

Movies
>Recently Added
>Sets
>Shortcut to Genesis (Which I want to name "Manage Movies")
>Genres
>Favorites

TV
>Recently Added
>Suggested Episodes
>Shortcut to Genesis (Which I want to name "Manage TV")
>Live TV
>Favorites

Settings
>Video Add Ons
>Programs
>File Manager
>Favorites


All in a Horizontal list

I think this should be partially possible. Only the settings part is not possible.
Just use the Custom Menu *Change Submenues* option in the Skin Settings.

Love this skin. Coupled with Advanced Launcher, it's the best thing I've found to provide a console style interface for my PC games library.

I have a couple of questions about tweaking it and I'm not sure if they should be directed toward Advanced Launcher, this skin or XBMC in general:

How can I modify the black areas (I found some XML references to PNG images that I couldn't locate in the skin's directory? I'd like to try a white layout.


Do videos still work with this skin? My extra fanart is showing up in the background as desired, but I couldn't get my trailer to play (named trailer.mp4 in recommended path).

Also, can the placement and size of the trailer video or screenshots/fanart be added or tweaked simply, or does that get into heavy coding within the skin?


Thanks for any input and the dev work that goes into this.

---------------------

My ideal scenario would be to boot into XBMC right into my games list. From there I'd like to scroll through the view with fanart in the background, and a video or fading screenshots in the foreground artwork space within the view. Being able to achieve that would eliminate my hunt for a PC game frontend. I've tried a lot of different solutions (steam big picture, mediaportal, maximus, hyperspin, gameex, etc)....but I just love the look of Cirrus with Advanced Launcher the best. It's the most polished.

Bug  RE: [MOD] Cirrus Extended - Support thread
Post: #408
love this skin. (doesnt everyone? haha)

Having a small bug/issue

everything worked wonderful before i left on vacation for 1 week.
i came back. and the screen was black but could hear sounds. figured it was something with the screensaver. unpluged XMBC box. replugged in, everything working well. watched 5 tv shows my sickbeard has downloaded for me.
i digress.
i went to watch a movie and noticed that the FANART background for the movie (any movie) is the fanart for the last TV show i have selected (not ever watched)

i use Big Poster view. and when i go from the last movie back to the "up/return" icon. i can quickly breifly see the correct fan art for the movie.

as you can see. the fanart background is that of "The Walking Dead"

hello all. I have multi-images for my home screen (ex. music changes backgrounds of different artists on home screen). The problem is when i go into both the artist list and/or in my now playing. If there is no artist fan art associated, the multi-image background shows up. I'd rather have a single default image for the fan art when nothing is associated. I assume i have to do some tweaking in music visualization.xml but not sure what i need to do. Any help is appreciated.

You would have to change the lines #128 and #158 of file ViewsVideoRightlist.xml to something like:

Code:
<label>$INFO[ListItem.Label] - ($INFO[ListItem.Property(UnWatchedEpisodes)])</label>

Thank you for this masterpiece of skin! It is amazing how leightweight and fast it is, way better than many others!

I have just one little problem that I can't change the focus on start up. I tried to change the "Start up window" and the "Custom Focus Offset" but both options didn't change anything.
Maybe it's just me but I really tried everything out without any solution.
---------------------------------------------------
I found out how to fix the problem Weather shows up two times when you activate weather fanart:
IncludesHomeMainMenu.xml
Line 431, change
Code:
<visible>!Skin.HasSetting(HomeMenuNoWeatherButton)</visible>
to
Code:
<visible>!Skin.HasSetting(HomeMenuNoWeatherButton) + !Weather.IsFetched</visible>
---------------------------------------------------
Better this way:
replace all 4 id="24" blocks with this:
Code:
<item id="24">
    <label>8</label>
    <onclick>ActivateWindow(Weather)</onclick>
    <icon>special://skin/backgrounds/weatherfanart.jpg</icon>
    <visible>!Skin.HasSetting(ShowWeatherFanart) | IsEmpty(Skin.String(WeatherFanartDir)) | !Weather.IsFetched</visible>
</item>
<item id="24">
    <label>8</label>
    <onclick>ActivateWindow(Weather)</onclick>
    <icon>$INFO[Skin.String(HomeWeatherFanartFolder)]$INFO[Weather.FanartCode]</icon>
    <visible>Weather.IsFetched + Skin.HasSetting(ShowWeatherFanart) + !IsEmpty(Skin.String(WeatherFanartDir))</visible>
</item>
This will disable the setting
Skin settings -> Home Window -> Weather Condition fanart on home
but make the Fanart option in the weather app works without any duplicates.

But I have still no idea how to make Focus Offset works as it should
---------------------------------------------------
To make start up window work as you set in the settings add this:
Startup.xml - Line 52
Code:
<control type="button" id="10">
    <description>trigger</description>
    <onfocus>ReplaceWindow($INFO[System.StartupWindow])</onfocus>
    <texturenofocus>-</texturenofocus>
    <texturefocus>-</texturefocus>
    <visible>!Skin.HasSetting(Use_Startup_Playlist)</visible>
</control>

I think Cirrus V2 was able to auto-play video snaps in the fanart window, when navigating a game library w/ Advanced Launcher. Is it possible to do this with V3? I tried the play trailer option, but isn't exactly what I'm looking for.
