Introducing... Arctic mk. ii

This skin originally started as a mod to bring an Alaska spin to Black's amazing xperience1080 skin. It has since evolved into a beast of its own. So I present 'Arctic mk.II'

  • Support for extrafanart, tv next aired, metadata actors, extendedinfo, cd art and much much more
  • Multiple view types and many skin customisation options
  • Lots of other goodies that I forgot...

Requirements
Optional Extras

Textures.xbt for latest GIT.
Delete all files in skin/media and put the Textures.xbt in it.

Skin should be much smoother now, especially on systems with low performance like RPi and Atom.

jurial when I am git pulling it says:

error: Your local changes to the following files would be overwritten by merge:
addon.xml
Please, commit your changes or stash them before you can merge.
Aborting

I already made a new addon.xml but still saying that. I am just ignoring it. Just wanted to mention it.

Yeah, that's a git error -- nothing to do with me. Basically its because you changed a file and then I have updated that file so doing a pull would overwrite your changes - so git aborts rather than downloading changes and messing everything up. You need to stash your changes then pull in the latest.
Code:
git stash
git pull

and this will clear out the stashed changes (basically 'stash' tells git to keep a copy of your previous changes in case you wanted to revert back to them).
Code:
git stash clear

I hope you don't try the git pull with the "https:"

so first you have to navigate into the directory
cd .xbmc/addons/skin.arctic

try:
Code:
git clone git://github.com/jurialmunkey/skin.arctic

EDIT: Sorry made a mistake.
It should just work with just "git pull" when you are in the "skin.arctic" directory. I guess you already knew that. If it isnt working I think it's a github problem.
