Thanks for this wonderful skin!

Two questions/suggestions:
- Is it possible to remove the "photo-count overlay" when watching pictures (I mean the grey half-transparent bar with the number of the photo)?
- Could you add the possibility to jump forward/backward in a video? At the moment you can scroll through the video, but not jump to the position you want by clicking on the timeline.

Cheers

... ah, and another one: Sometimes I find it useful to have a Home-button on the pages to jump to the home screen. Do you think it would be possible to add this?

Cheers

Hi Fraenzken,

Quote:Is it possible to remove the "photo-count overlay" when watching pictures?

Yes, but you'll need to do this yourself. Edit file 1080i/slideshow.xml, replacing:
Code:
<!--picture info-->
        <control type="group">
            <posx>col-5-begin</posx>
            <posy>row-17-begin</posy>
            <!--background-->

with:

Code:
<!--picture info-->
        <control type="group">
            <visible>false</visible>
            <posx>col-5-begin</posx>
            <posy>row-17-begin</posy>
            <!--background-->

The skin isn't really set up for touchscreen use, so i'm a bit reluctant to add this if i'm honest. I might revisit it when I upgrade the skin for Helix however.

Again, this is something that only really affects touch screen users, so i'm reluctant to add it unless there's a huge demand for it.

thedeadman, this an absolute beauty in functionality.
Really love the way you minimize and toned it down to show how real functionality should work.

My favorite skin for sure, the only thing I miss after upgrading to Kodi alpha 4 from 13.2.

@TBCdevil, @Swaggerwocky,

Cheers both. A Helix version is in the works. Shouldn't be too long now.

Agreed on the search progress.. I sometimes feel I'm just clicking around and hoping it's doing something.
The same holds for the YouTube add-on, I click something, is it doing something? doesn't seem so.. click again, etc. and before you know it you play some random video Tongue

@S0lem: More detail please - upgraded XBMC or Maximinimalism? Where are you looking for subtitles? Is a subtitle addon installed?

@Mozillion: Feedback and user notification is something that XBMC in general could improve - the devs talk about it in the read-only threads. I'll always do what I can to get the most out of what's available, but there's only so much I have the power to do as a skinner! That said, i've noticed the busy spinner isn't behaving properly on addons like youtube so i'll have another look at that soon.

@thedeadman Yeah, I figured, no worries... I just wondered if some kind of "activation" animation was missing.

@thedeadman about the subs, there are sub addons that are very slow, there are addons with errors that are kind of delays... I never know if it is just still looking, hasn't found anything or if there are none... if there are errors they are displayed (eventually)

Thanks a lot (and sorry for getting back to you so late)!
