Hi, first I'd like to thank you for the fantastic skin!
There are many empty tiles for customization, I understand that I can use them for add-ons, but I don't have that many add-ons, what else they can be configured to? Any possibility to remove some of them? Thank you in advance!

Add-ons, playlists, favourites and with the custom type anything you want.

Thank you!
I guess I'm not creative enough, but could you please give some examples on custom types that are normally used with the skin?

The only time I have used the custom option is to set tiles to launch different things outside of XBMC ie Steam Big Picture Mode. Now that I am runing Windows 8.1 though with a remote that supports multi gesture I just launch everything including XBMC from the windows 8.1 start screen.

Video Nodes are quite cool, not sure if you can set them using a custom type but you can in my mod: http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=Video_nodes

Useful for example if you want to map a tile to go directly to the "movies" section of an add-on (e.g. iPlayer etc)

Other things I find quite useful is to have a top250 tile, a trailers tile...

It's all down to how you want it in the end of the day
