It works great. The only thing i do not like is livetv view because of two things. First it does not highlight the channel you are on (it just zoom it). And the other thing is that the zoom effect should be made selectable.

Working great, thanks Angelinas.

If interested, I recently figured out an easy way to make this skin a 7-icon one. The part of this thread I posted is here:

No prob. Overwrite two files or hack the one you have. Whatever works for you.

This mod looks like it would be great for me. I want to stick with Confluence but just want to tweak a few things. Can someone please post a link to the most recent version. I started the tread from the beginning and saw every few posts there was a new release. I then jumped to page 95 and started working backwards and only saw links to other stuff. I went to github but found multiple versions some saying helix and now I'm confused. A quick link or let us know what is the latest version would be great. Thanks,

Roveer

It's been a while for me but I believe it can be installed from the hybrid repo in the xbmc.org repo. It's a mudislander skin.

The tweaks toward the end of the thread are mainly for the keyboard in Helix v14 and to add 7 icons in place of 5.

Folks:

For those of you, like me, still stuck on Windows XP and Frodo but still want 7 addons for each home screen item, I've taken the time to convert and test this mod to the Frodo version of Confluence.custom.mod.

Refer to this post by for how the mod was accomplished:

http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid...pid1786787

I used this version of Confluence.Custom.Mod for Frodo:

https://codeload.github.com/CCM-Organiza.../zip/Frodo

Simply replace the two files: IncludesHomeAddOnSystem.xml and SkinSettings.xml in the '720' folder of Confluence.Custom.Mod. The next time you run XBMC, you'll have 70 potential on-screen choices.

Here's the two file as a zip package:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/5yv2bip080tmv3...o.zip?dl=0

Interestingly, this version has both a 'Textures.xbt' journal file plus all the images that make up the skin as individual files in the 'Media' folder. If you delete the 'Textures.xbt' from the 'Media' folder, the next time you run XBMC, it'll use the individual images instead. I've altered the folder focus, progress bar and scroll bars so I can see them better from a distance. If you want to give these a try (they're yellow! Smile), here's the file:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/ih7zbbx40rk6zh...a.zip?dl=0

Just drop them in the skins 'Media' folder and run XBMC to see the difference.

Hope this helps us XPers! BTW, the images will work with the Gotham version too because they have the same names. I've already modded my Gotham versions of XBMC Smile.

I'm really liking CCM but I have not been able to do with it what I was trying to do.

I wanted to add a main menu item called 3d movies. I then wanted it to display my collection of 3d movies that I have added as a separate file location in videos.

Is this possible? If so, how.

Thanks,

Roveer

I played around more with CCM and found that I can do what I want by adding these features as sub menu items. Using the file location I can point to a specific location (3d movies) and get just those movies to show up. Only downside is that the 3d movies still show up in the main library. not the end of the world. Also added a sub menu item (again using a file location back to my main movie location) that allows me to do a different sort. My main "Movie" menu item sorts the movies as date added and the sub menu item sets the sort to alphabetic. Added a 3rd sub menu item to point to my global search add-on and I'm all set.

I could do all these things on the main menu but it just didn't look good and some menu items started to scroll since they were so long. Sub menu's are the way to go.

roveer:

Submenus are less customizable in the Frodo version of CCM. The Gotham version will allow all the submenus to be rearranged. The Frodo version lacks li'le incidentals like modifying the Live TV menu. Otherwise, it's a great skin for both versions.

BTW: I use the development versions of CCM from this GitHub page:

https://github.com/CCM-Organization/skin...d/branches

They contain both the individual skin images and the Textures.xbt journal file in the 'Media' folder. This has allowed me to modify the skin to be more accessible to folks with poor eyesight like me. After I'm done modding, I use the texture packer program to recompress the images into a new textures.xbt file. I does improve performance on slower PCs to compress the images.

The texture packer can be found here:

http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=TexturePacker

I used their standard '.bat' batch file to turn the 'Media' folder of the skin into a texture.xbt file. After it's done, the images in the folder can be deleted.

Here's a screenshot of the end result:

I have since made the progress bar and the scroll bars yellow/orange too. It matches the CCM font colours nicely and I can operate most functions from a distance now. Smile

Mudislander,

Is it possible to add the same menu to the addon shortcuts as you use in submenu items and customize home menu? i.e. I would like to be able to add video nodes to my addon shortcuts. Right now I have to create a favourite from the video node. This works, but gets a bit messy.

John
