As promised here is the Icon Pack Installer.

In SVN, so you need svn software, We recommend tortoiseSVN.
http://xbmc-scripting.googlecode.com/svn...0Installer

After you download run the build.bat for a clean install and ftp that to the Xbox.

Run the script.
Browse for either plugins or scripts pack.
Browse for which pack
Once inside the packs folder, select any icon to install the pack.
If your scripts are named right (or I named the icons right) that's it.

I did it this way so you can see the icons before you install them. If gfx people start making packs, then I can do a proper installer, that maybe can even download packs from the web with a preview.

For now submit your packs here and I can put them in SVN.

Thanks to all who I included what you have done so far.

More to come hopefully Smile

Clarification, a pack is sepcific to XBMC where, a pack consists of .png/.jpg files each named after the script or plugin with a .tbn extension.

There are two types of packs Script or Plugin.
for example the aka013's Black Glassy scripts pack has:
AccuWeather.tbn
Apple Movie Trailers.tbn
Daily Comics.tbn
Emulauncher.tbn
Kaid Control Pad.tbn
XBMC Lyrics.tbn

They can be wide or standard dimensions.

They need to be created, by our talented gfx people in here Smile

Nuka...what kind of 'packs' does it support? I am thinking about iconpackager, etc...I wonder whether we need to be more specific about whether these packs are already pre-downloadable, need manually creating, etc?

I know you skinners and gfx people are busy, but think how nice skins would look with similar style icons for scripts and plugins.

It would really add to the whole experience.

Nobody likes the idea?

Smile  New Icon Pack - for Plugins
Post: #7
Hi,

I Had a slightly built.
A complete icon pack for video and music plugins,And a few scripts.

The script is not working properly with double plugins name?
In the video folder, it creates them, but not in music.
An example would be there "podcasts.tbn".

Is it possible that I have the script, install icon-packs to a other location ... Except plugins and scripts ... As the folder in which I root of musicĀ“s? Last.fm, or my main music folder, Apps on the hard disk?

The icons which I have created are not the hammer, but I have given my best!

Add a german language.

complete Script svn 1779 with my Icon-Pack: Download

Thanks, I only understood about half of that Smile

I'll change the script so plugins are separated music/video/pictures/programs.

Are you saying some of the thumbs, for example Last fm is for the music share?

I'll add folders for Music/Videos/Apps under shares.

so it will be:
Code:
scripts
  {thumbs}

plugins
  video
    {thumbs}
  music
    {thumbs}
  pictures
    {thumbs}
  programs
    {thumbs}

shares
  video
    {thumbs}
  music
    {thumbs}
  pictures
    {thumbs}

then maybe i can add an apps one, though I'm not sure that necessary.

Did I understand correctly?

I added your Icon installer thumb as the default for the script, Is that ok?
