Wow Jezz!!!! "B E A -Utiful!!!!" Thats what i had in mind for a PM3-Horizons skin idea i had a while back, but never got a chance to make. Using much more usage of 16x9 with little for wasted space. Nice job buddy!!! Can't wait.
Hopefully something similar is coming with the dvd covers view (in a row), using most of the width possible like the 2 images show. Thanks. I'll be keeping a tight eye in the SVN for these changes. Smile

Well this view actually replaced the dvd covers in a row due to various technical issues the biggest being hitting the view limit.
And for the same reasons it wont be hitting the SVN until after atlantis and jm has hopefully fixed/added a feature for me http://trac.xbmc.org/ticket/5216 but I do plan on uploading a version to the forum so people can test it

For those who want to give this a go
http://blackbolt.x-scene.com/Jezz_X/PM3....erflow.rar
Note you don't need anything later than Atlantis Beta2 to run this but you will be missing a couple of labels in the skin without the latest SVN
Also note it has an issue of for music and videos the coverflow is the default view for new users /fresh install but thats minor as you can change it straight away

As per usual not sure how speedy this will be on xbox its not made for it

Thanks for the trial Jezz. I was thinking more like replacing (temp. until more then 10 views can be added, currently there's only 4-5 only including videos, assuming shows and music are another 4-5 added.) maybe either List view OR Media Info view since those are almost the same anyway other then the position of the cover and including synopsis. That would free up a view to use to have a view with 8-10 covers in a horizontal line, somewhat like how we did one of the few views in Back-Row skin. Would that help out for an suggestion til the views is taken care of? Just sharing my idea's. I like it so far though either way.

I like the DVD coverflow, but is there anyway to make the covers small at the bottom of the screen, then have the fanart covering the top of the screen?

No sorry that would just be AEON Smile


P.S. This has now been added to the official skin in the SVN minus the issues below I listed before Thanks to jmarshall for making it work better
