I assume You're using gotham sio2-x themed white.

the skin automatically brightens (white theme) or darkens (black theme) in order to make everything readable. It does so to "fail-proof" the changing of the background.
black version shouldn't wash out the custom image.

The Helix version of the skin already keeps custom images as they are since a few other people pointed that out.

I might do a quick update on the Gotham version to change this.

PLEASE GRAB THE LASTEST VERSION HERE (install from zip)

Hey there fast

I've got a request that's if it won't be to much trouble. Would it be possible to use custom Genre thumbnails?

Let me try that.
I don't want to make the skin too heavy.. but I will try and make it happen.

Of course genres will only work with english scrapers.

something like this?

[Image: Schermata%202014-10-20%20alle%2012.47.07.png]

i made a quick set of icons... but if this is to be implemented we'll need some good ones..

any idea?

of course this will be compatible with the other sets of custom genre images.. i won't pack the textures so they can be easily replaced.

this will require some testing...
yep that's you Scroll. Big Grin

EDIT - if anybody wants to give making images a shot.. the need to be 335x500 pixels.

I like it!
Would it be possible to add music as well?

Is it possible to pack everything except the resources folder

The skin is great! I'm using it on my laptop & Amazon Fire Tv running Gotham 13.2. But there's an issue with the Favorite icons in the Home Screen Window. The first two Favorite icons are out of place, they are in between TV Shows & Add-ons icons. It's like this in both of the devices. Is there any way to fix this problem? I was also wondering if the number of Favorite icons in the home screen can be increased to as many as I want to (say 10-20).

Thanks in advance!
